UltraShape V3 and VelaShape II: The Gold Standard Non-Surgical Body Shaping Solution.
by Syneron Developer Manager, Vanessa Bird
We are exposed daily to media images of the ‘perfect body’, with celebrities, models and sports stars displaying lean, shapely and toned physiques. So are we comfortable in our own skin? Are we body confident and happy to show off our figure? It’s fair to say that most of us have at least one area on our body that we would like to improve, even those of us who class ourselves as average and not overweight, and until recently most thought could only be ‘fixed’ by diet, exercise or surgery.
So what’s available for people who present with multiple body concerns? People who suffer stubborn pockets of fat that diet & exercise just won’t shift? People who have loose skin? Women who hate their cellulite and saddlebags? Men who hate their love handles or man boobs? Or those who dress to hide their back fat or bingo wings?
The ‘Gold Standard’ in non surgical body shaping and contouring is VelaShape II (more details can be found here) and UltraShape V3 (more information). Both devices use scientifically proven, safe technologies to target cellulite, excess fat, loose skin and to shape & sculpt. Together they meet the growing patient demand for full, non-invasive body shaping with no downtime and exceptional results.
VelaShape uses infra-red, bi-polar radiofrequency, mechanical massage & pulsed vacuum to tackle cellulite, give circumferential reduction, contour sculpt and tighten loose skin. The heating stimulates fibroblast activity, remodels the extracellular matrix & thereby reduces laxity & volume. The massage/vacuum causes an increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage. Suitable for men and women of all skin colours, it safely and effectively gives long lasting, measurable results. A treatment usually takes anything from 20 minutes to an hour (depending on the number of areas treated) and feels like a warm, deep massage. A course of treatments is required, spaced 1 week apart, with the average number of treatments ranging between 4 and 6 (depending on the patient’s cellulite, skin laxity and bulges), although you can now have 3 treatments to get an average of 2-4cm circumferential reduction in a month. FDA approved, it only requires one top up treatment every 3 months to maintain results. There’s no downtime & you can return to your daily activities immediately. The average circumferential reduction is between 0.5 – 3 inches and people report seeing a visible difference as soon as the 2nd treatment. The safety and efficacy of VelaShape has been proven in numerous clinical trials and over 3.5 million treatments, making it a market leader in non-surgical body shaping.
UltraShape uses pulsed, focused ultrasound to permanently destroy targeted fat cells with no swelling, no pain, no downtime or bruising. The ultrasound focuses on a precise depth within the subcutaneous fat layer, meaning only fat cells are destroyed without harming surrounding tissue, blood vessels or nerve endings. This is why results following UltraShape can be seen so rapidly.
UltraShape uses a sophisticated 3D tracking system to map the body’s curvature, individually marking out the treatment area on a client to ensure the area is treated uniformly with no risk of uneven results. UltraShape also uses radiofrequency pre & post treatment to help with drainage and skin tightening. Other systems on the market for non-invasive fat removal use non-pulsed ultrasound or freezing that cause damage to surrounding tissues, blood vessels and nerves, leading to pain, swelling, cell death and a longer wait of 2-6 months before results are seen. This is why UltraShape is seen as the Gold Standard compared to others.
UltraShape is suitable for men and women of all skin colours with 1-3 treatments recommended, spaced 2 weeks apart with results starting to show within 10 days of the first treatment. The average circumferential reduction ranges from 0.5 to 5 inches & it’s perfect for stubborn soft fat on the stomach, flanks, thighs, arms and back. Once destroyed the fat cell contents are processed via the body’s natural metabolic pathways through the liver, so cannot return making it perfect for people looking for lasting results. Simply lie down, relax as the treatment is carried out, and then immediately return to your busy life.
VelaShape & UltraShape can also be combined to give exceptional body shaping results. Both treatments are comfortable, safe & have supporting studies to prove efficacy. VelaShape offers full body shaping, skin tightening & cellulite smoothing while UltraShape permanently destroys unwanted fat. Your practitioner will tailor a bespoke body shaping solution for you using both devices to give maximum results quickly with no pain or downtime.
