DLK on Avenue is the first in North America to offer the UltraShape Body Contouring Treatment. UltraShape has developed a surgery-free body contouring treatment that effectively and safely reduces unsightly fat deposits in men and women. What’s more, UltraShape delivers results that can actually be measured!
The UltraShape procedure is the first scientifically and clinically proven non-invasive solution for body contouring. The UltraShape procedure is a totally non-invasive, no-downtime treatment for the reduction of unwanted fat deposits and improvement in body contours. With the UltraShape procedure focused ultrasound is applied to the outer skin, which generates mechanical (non-thermal) effects in the fat layer to selectively break down fat cells and liquefy fat. The liquefied fat is gradually and safely cleared by the body’s natural metabolic and physiological pathways over time. The UltraShape procedure is performed during a convenient, “walk-in, walk-out” session carried out in an office-based environment. The procedure requires no anesthesia or sedation and the vast majority of patients report no discomfort during treatment. After treatment, patients immediately resume their daily routines and there is no need for maintenance treatments.
The UltraShape™ “walk-in walk-out” procedure takes place in the physician’s office after a consultation session between physician or registered nurse and patient. The UltraShape treatment requires no downtime, no follow up maintenance, and no recuperation period. The safe and effective procedure - ranging between 60 to 90 minutes depending on the size and number of target treatment areas – can treat multiple areas like the abdomen, flanks ('love handles') and external thighs (‘saddle bags’) and requires no anesthesia or sedation. The physician, registered nurse or trained technician first examines and marks the treatment area. Then, while the patient lies back on a comfortable bed, the operator uses the hand-held transducer to convert electrical energy into ultrasound energy and gently deliver focused therapeutic ultrasound energy over the marked region to selectively break down fat cells without affecting neighboring structures. Immediately after treatment, the body’s natural pathways clear away the disrupted fat cells. The entire procedure is guided by UltraShape’s advanced tracking technology which ensures smooth, uniform contouring. Most patients report a painless and comfortable experience with side effects being extremely rare. Patients are immediately able to resume their daily routine.
Advanced Tracking and Guidance System: The UltraShape™ procedure is guided by a proprietary real-time tracking and guidance system designed to deliver smooth, uniform body contouring results. The system software maps the treatment area in three dimensions and guarantees adherence to a pre-determined treatment algorithm. This algorithm ensures complete and uniform energy delivery over the entire treatment area, thus minimizing the risk of contour irregularities, a common side effect of liposuction. The tracking system, by addressing the dynamic nature of the treatment area as it monitors and synchronizes patient position in real-time, enables the patient to move freely without impacting the treatment.
Therapeutic Transducer: The UltraShape™ patented transducer delivers focused ultrasound energy to the subcutaneous fat layer. Specific, pre-set ultrasound parameters ensure that only the fat cells within the treatment area are targeted and that neighboring structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The hand-held device also contains an acoustic feedback mechanism that verifies optimal acoustic contact during the treatment.
Your Body’s Role: During the UltraShape procedure, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the UltraShape procedure and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed via the body's natural mechanisms.
Clinical results show that after just one treatment there is an average reduction of two centimeters in body circumference, while multiple treatments have achieved enhanced circumference reduction.
