MedContour is a medically-certified device using ultrasound to effectively reduce fat deposits in typical problem zones such as the stomach, rear, hips and thigh regions. Worldwide there have been over 1 million treatments with Med Contour!!
The procedure is comfortable for the client, noninvasive and does not require the use of compression garments. In the U.S. this highly successful device is known as VASER Shape. The recommended body forming program involves a thorough initial evaluation, a body composition analysis using a scientifically-proven device (BIA), nutritional consultation, and lymphatic drainage. In general, a special selection of natural products from Unicity are recommended to compliment this program and to ensure long-lasting results.
Fat reduction, Slimming Effect
The MedContour device is a computerized system that uses ultrasound waves and massage therapy to promote the release of lipids from the fat cells into the interstitial fluid. Through stimulation of the lymphatic system, these lipids are subsequently naturally eliminated from the body via liver and kidney. MedContour uses a dual-transducer head that emits a double beam of overlapping ultrasonic energy at a frequency of 1 MHz. The ultrasound beams overlap and treat fatty tissue between 1 cm and 5 cm below the surface of the skin. These beams may be modulated at frequencies between 20 kHz and 60 kHz. (For a detailed study see also „Clinical Effects of Noninvasive Ultrasound Therapy for Circumferential Reduction“, The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Vol. 29, No. 2, 2012, 114-120).
MedContour is presently the only medically-certified device of its kind in Germany. The procedure represents a gentle and effective method for reducing the amount of fat in the body without an operation. In many regards this treatment is superior to liposuction and other invasive methods. The number of treatments for a particular body region depends on the initial figure and the desired results. Typically six to ten weekly sessions are recommended. No fasting or strict diet is required.
Depending on the amount of subcutaneous fat present in the treated area, the MedContour ultrasound device reduces the number of fat cells and/or the size of the fat cells, while stimulating a tightening of the skin. In many cases, cellulite can also be significantly reduced by this method.
