What is it and how does it work?
The Ultrashape procedure is a pulsed, ultrasound energy that destroys the walls of the fat cells in your body and releases that fat in the form of triglycerides, these are then released through your liver. Because of the no incisions, no anesthetics and no recovery time more and more people are turning to Ultrashape versus invasive surgery.
Does the treatment hurt?
There is no heating or freezing with this treatment making it virtually painless.
What are the common side effects?
There are no known side effects.
What is Velashape?
It is a non-invasive temporary body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction with no downtime. The technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surround connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers.
Does the treatment hurt?
Most feel the treatment to be comfortable and feel like a warm deep-tissue massage. It is normal to feel a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some will experience a pink appearance to the skin for a few hours post treatment, this is very normal.
How often should I have it done?
3 treatments are recommended that can be spaced a week or two apart. Some like to add this treatment to their health and fitness goals and receive treatments as a maintenance to what they are already doing or as a treatment before a special occasion.
Kybella is an FDA-approved, non-surgical injection for reducing moderate to severe fullness in the sub-mental region commonly known as the “double chin” in adults. The injections are made up of a naturally occurring substance in the body called deoxycholic acid.
Once injected into the fat cells- deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells permanently.
Who is a good candidate?
Someone who has mild to moderate fullness in the double chin area that bothers them.
Someone who does not want to or is not medically able to have plastic surgery or liposuction. Kybella only requires the patient to have an office visit for injections in their chin, so general anesthesia is not required.
How long does a treatment take?
Once we begin injecting, it will take approx 5-10 minutes total.
Does it hurt?
A few minutes after we begin injection you will start to feel a burning sensation. This peaks about 5 minutes after we start injecting and lasts for about 15 minutes.
What are the side effects?
As stated above, you will have some temporary but quick discomfort immediately following the injections. You will also start to swell. Swelling will be the worst on the day after your treatment and last for about a week or so. You may also experience bruising or numbness in the treated area which will go away.
How many treatments will I need?
There is no “cookie cutter” protocol for Kybella. Every person has their own problem area. The amount of fat and the disposition of the fat will vary from person to person. Most people who are candidates will need at least 2 treatments (spaced out 6 weeks apart) and 2-3 vials of Kybella at each session.
When will I see results?
Typically you can start to see results from the first treatment in 4-6 weeks. Due to the fact that you will most likely be treating again at the 6-week mark (and, thus, swelling again) expect to begin to see results about 4 weeks after the 2nd treatment. You will continue to see improvement for up to 3 months after your last session.
Kybella can also be used for fat removal anywhere on the body
