Contour I by Ultrashape
The gentle and painless method to reduce unpleasant fat pads on the stomach, sides or thighs.
Physician3DAnimation, Flash Movie .
This highly modern ultrasound technology serves to burst a 2-3mm thick layer of fat cells under the surface of the skin. This releases fat, which is then broken down by the body in exactly the same way as fat which has been taken in food.
Three treatments at intervals of 3 weeks can reduce the circumference of the stomach or sides by 4-6 cm.
The Contour I from Ultrashape is the first instrument in the world which works with focussed ultrasound waves linked to a sophisticated computer control system. This guarantees that each point in the region is treated once and only once. This then guarantees that the thickness of the layer is reduced smoothly and that the tissue under the skin is not overheated. Damage to blood vessels or nerves is then excluded and the treatment is free of pain.
This is a suitable treatment for reducing unpleasant fat pads and for harmonizing the body form. It is not suitable for reducing the body weight of overweight individuals.
The results of the treatment are much better if it is attempted to lose a little weight (1-2 kg over 1-2 months). This means that the body is transferred into a "fat combustion mode" with increased muscular activity. What is ideal is combination with regular training (twice weekly) on the "Power Plate" and additional treatments with the "Velasmooth" to tighten tissue.
