Bellevue, Washington (PRWEB) September 28, 2014
Athenix Body Sculpting Institute, a cosmetic plastic surgery practice that specializes in body contouring is the first in the State of Washington to offer the UltraShape™, a breakthrough treatment recently FDA cleared for fat cell destruction.
The UltraShape System developed by medical device leader Syneron Candela is the first and only non invasive fat reduction treatment that uses pulsed focused ultrasound to immediately and comfortably destroy fat cells, resulting in measurable outcomes in as little as two weeks.
The UltraShape device works by emitting waves of focused pulsed ultrasonic energy that converge at a closely confined area where patients want to target stubborn fat. Ultrasound is comfortably delivered to the treatment area, while keeping surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles intact and undamaged. Fat cells are destroyed and eliminated by the body’s natural processes as soon as two weeks after treatment resulting in very visible immediate reduction.
"We are very excited about offering UltraShape to our patients. UltraShape’s patented technology allows us to precisely delivery ultrasound energy with extraordinary precision so we can target and destroy fat cells immediately without breaking the skin, says Dr. Maurice Sherman, Chief Medical Officer at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute. “Treatments take about an hour and patients can go right back to their normal activities without any disruption.”
In the randomized, controlled clinical study of UltraShape which was performed at three clinical sites in the US and one site outside of the US, a total of 150 subjects were treated and followed for up to four months. Ninety four percent of patients saw a measurable circumferential reduction with 90 percent of patients being satisfied with their treatment outcomes. This is one of the largest studies ever performed in the area of non-invasive aesthetics.
The UltraShape is a very versatile device that is effective for the reduction of fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. UltraShape is FDA cleared for fat cell destruction and is used to improve body shape and contour.
