WHAT IS MED CONTOUR ULTRASOUND TREATMENT?

It is common to have areas of stubborn fat pockets on some areas of the body which may appear as unattractive bumps and lumps. This is the result of layers of subcutaneous fat that is firmly settled beneath the skin and can’t be removed even with regular exercise and a proper diet. But, Med Contour treatment can actually help to remove inches from the body.

It is a combined ultrasound massage that targets the fat cells under the skin.

Med Contour treatment consists of a specially designed device that combines two ultrasound heads. It is the only device that combines the effects of vacuum and lymphatic drainage. The device has two ultrasound heads that are parallel at an angle of 135 degrees and the vacuum applicator that opens the lymph nodes and performs the lymph drainage. It is a special patented technology that sucks the tissue with the use of variable low frequency and focused ultrasound. This technology enables controlled treatment. During Med Contour treatment, the device manages to penetrate much deeper but it doesn’t harm any tissue and it is completely without risk.

HOW DOES MED CONTOUR TREATMENT WORK?

During the Med Contour treatment, the ultrasound therapy utilizes two beams of energy that heats the fat and targets the fat cells beneath the skin. It also boosts metabolism and eliminates excess fluids. The lymphatic drainage works as a vacuum and opens the lymph nodes, eliminates excess toxins from the body and improves blood circulation. The MedContour device sucks up the tissue and targets adipose tissue by fixing it between two concave ultrasound heads. This technology is called V-mode delivery of energy – each ultrasound head releases the beam of light and heats the tissue. The energy is delivered in a safe way, which means that the surface oft he skin doesn’t get burned and there are no adverse effects of the treatment. The subcutaneous layers of the skin are treated and fat cells are precisely targeted. The fat cells get broken in the adipose tissue.

MedContour treatment is very powerful and yet it is absolutely safe because it treats the fat cells exactly and just where it is needed. As the tissue is sucked by the vacuum pump, between two ultrasound heads, it is fixed and can’t move. This actually ensures that not only individual fat cells are targeted but also the whole group. Regarding cellulite, it breaks down the connective fibers which in turn reduces the cellulite.

During the treatment, the variable frequency changes between 20 to 60 kHz and increases the penetration of the ultrasound and causes a better effect on adipocytes. This is important for getting at the fat cells that are of different sizes. So a change in pressure that is caused by a low-frequency pulse with various wavelengths is crucial for the effectiveness of this procedure.

WHAT BODY AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH MED CONTOUR?

All body areas with localized fat deposits and affected by cellulite can be treated apart from the face and neck.

The most usual treatment areas are:

  • Abdomen
  • Bra area
  • Love handles
  • Knees
  • Buttocks and hips
  • Arms
  • Lower back
  • Inner and outer thighs

During the treatment, the fat cells are broken down and cellulite is reduced and eliminated. With the help of lymphatic drainage, the excretion of fat cells is triggered. After the treatment course the skin texture is improved, softer and smoother.

BENEFITS OF MED CONTOUR TREATMENT

Med Contour treatment offers a dual handpiece that helps the treatment be more focused and to leave the surrounding skin, nerves, blood vessels and tissue unharmed. With its integrated lymphatic drainage, the treatment helps the body to eliminate excess fluid, waste and toxins from the system.

The Med Contour procedure is the only one that can treat the targeted area at a much deeper area and with stronger penetration.

It firms, shapes and smooths the body and shows the first results after the first 2-3 sessions.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS

Asked By Others

  • WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MED CONTOUR TREATMENT?

    Both men and women can undergo this treatment, provided that they have realistic expectations about the improved body contour and have an active lifestyle and proper diet. MedContour is not a suitable treatment for weight reduction. The treatment is ideal for medium weight or overweight patients who want to boost their body shape, reduce cellulite dimples and firm the saggy skin. It is ideal for patients who wish to reduce the fat deposits in their targeting areas without surgery.

  • WHO SHOULD AVOID MED CONTOUR TREATMENT?

    The treatment is not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding ladies. Also, patients with cardiovascular diseases, heart pacemakers and any kind of medical prosthesis should avoid it.

  • HOW DOES THE MED CONTOUR TREATMENT LOOK LIKE?

    When the patient arrives at Lucia Clinic, first he/she is consulted with an ultrasound therapist. The therapist examines the patient’s targeted areas and determines if the Med Contour treatment is the right solution. Then together with the patient, the therapist creates a treatment plan that will specifically address the patient’s concerns and meet the patient’s realistic expectations.

    A day before the Med Contour treatment, the patients should drink a lot of water to make the dissolving of fat tissue easier during the procedure.

    Before the treatment starts, the therapist applies a gel to the patient’s targeted area in order to glide the applicator smoothly over the skin and ensure that the patient is comfortable. Then the therapist presses the applicator to the targeted body parts and moves it back and forth until the treatment is over. The therapist follows the contours of the patient’s body and targets the fat cells at a specific depth under the skin. The Med Contour ultrasound is of a high frequency and uses 1 Mhz which makes sure that the treatment is absolutely safe and effective.

    After the treatment, the excess gel is removed from the patient skin.

    During the Med Contour treatment, the therapist uses a special concave tip. The vacuum in the applicator sucks in the tissue and fat cells. With the simultaneous action of the two ultrasound heads, a phase of compression and decompression is created in the tissue and this action creates a lot of gas bubbles in the tissue. As the bubbles become larger they implode and create a powerful energy that triggers the decomposition of fat cells membranes. The ultrasound therapy breaks the membranes and destroys the fat cells. The destroyed fat cells release fatty acids and triglycerides that are absorbed through the blood vessels and lymph and moved to the liver. Through the patient’s natural metabolic processes they are eliminated from the body. As the applicator has integrated lymph drainage, this so-called zone massage speeds up the process of elimination.

    The treatment session can last between 45 to 60 minutes, all depending on the size of the targeted body area.

    The experience of Med Contour treatment can be described as a hot deep massage. It should be relatively pain-free, except for a few moments when the high energy is achieved to treat the most undesirable and prominent areas of fat deposits.

  • HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS ARE NECESSARY?

    Usually, 6 treatments are necessary to achieve the best optimal results. Each treatment session is space out 7 to 10 days apart. The number of sessions is determined according to the patient’s needs and expectations and are settled during the consultation with the therapist.

  • RESULTS AND DOWNTIME

    Every patient is different and therefore the results may vary. Some patients may notice significant improvements after a single 2-3 session, while others might need more. Some patients can already see a reduction in the average volume of 2.5cm after the first session.

    Once the results are achieved they are permanent, as long as the patients follow their exercise routine regularly and keep a balanced diet.

    Since Med Contour is a non-invasive treatment, there is no downtime and patients can return to their regular daily activities right after the procedure. The patients shouldn’t experience any pain or discomfort after the treatment. Mild redness can occur on the treated areas but this seizes after a few hours. In some very rare cases, there might appear mild burns but they don’t leave any lasting marks on the patient’s skin.
