Ultimate Contour

Applications:

The Ultimate Contour features the combination of applied high-intensity therapeutic ultrasound and radio frequency integrated into one device. Current applications include:

  • Skin tightening
  • Body Contouring
  • Treatment of cellulite

Technologies:

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasonic cavitation has recovered its leading role due to effects achieved through its application at emission frequencies significantly higher than the frequencies currently used in the field of Aesthetic Medicine.

Two phases occur during ultrasonic cavitation. The compression phases exerts positive pressure whereas expansion phases exert negative pressure. During compression phases, the fluid molecules tend to move closer, and during expansion phases they tend to move away. As these phases repeat, micro-bubbles show a progressive enlargement that causes their collapse and implosion producing shock wave emissions. This process is the Cavitation Phenomenon.

Cavitation of fat tissues is selectively produced by the emission frequency since the fluid content of the tissues shows better mobilization at this emission frequency(35-40 KHz) than at current frequencies. Furthermore, higher penetration of the ultrasonic wave, higher compression and lower thermal effect are observed.

Most important physiological effects are:

  • Cavitation effect on fat tissues causes fat fragmentation and the subsequent diffusion of the lipid matrix that later joins to the intersectial  fluids.
  • Emulsification of the lipid content favors its metabolic assimilation.
  • Emulsificated fluid content is carried through vascular and lymphatic tracts to the liver. Once it is in the liver, it follows the organism’s normal mechanisms.

RADIO FREQUENCY

Radio frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:Is it safe?
A: Absolutely. The Ultimate Contour meets strict safety standards. Incorporating advanced safety precautions, Ultimate Contour directs proven Ultrasound and Radio Frequency energy to precisely the areas of the body being treated.
Q:Who is a candidate?
A:The Ultimate Contour treatment is ideal for any patient between the ages of 21 and 70+. Treatments can be done on all parts of the body including the abdomen, love handles, eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jaw line, décolleté, arms, legs, knees, ankles and buttocks.
Q:Does it hurt?
A: No. Patients often describe the sensation as a “warm massage” and have little or no discomfort.
Q: How long does a treatment last?
A: Depending on the area being treated, treatments will last 10 minutes to an hour.
Q:How many treatments are required?
A:Treatment plans will be tailored to your individual needs. Most patients undergo between 3 to 6 treatments scheduled on a weekly basis.
Q:How long before I see results?
A:Many body contouring patients (ultrasound) see results immediately after the first treatment. Because skin tightening (radio frequency) requires collagen remodeling, the results take longer to see. Patients will experience the most dramatic results after 2 to 3 months.
Q:What are the side effects and is there downtime?
A:This procedure is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. You can easily have the treatment during your lunch break and return to your daily activities immediately.
