Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
UltraSlim® Is the Only Noninvasive Procedure for Immediate Fat Loss!
UltraSlim® is the only non-invasive procedure for immediate fat loss and acts as both a non-invasive body slimming and skin rejuvenation procedure. The FDA-cleared light therapy system treats targeted areas of your skin and underlying fat cells. This light therapy system emits a type of red light which causes the skin to produce collagen and elastin and reduces the size of subcutaneous fat accumulations. The treated fat cells respond by opening temporary pores in the cell and emptying the fat cell contents, releasing the fat.
The collagen naturally results in smoother, younger-looking skin with less appearance of lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. The elastin works with the collagen to tighten the skin, for a younger, firmer appearance.
What Is UltraSlim® Fat Reduction?
UltraSlim® is the ONLY FDA approved noninvasive device for IMMEDIATE fat loss. It can be used on virtually any area of the face or body. It uses advanced technology to encourage the leakage of fat from the fat cells, which can then be excreted out by the body’s natural metabolic processes. UltraSlim® is NOT similar to other non-surgical fat reduction methods, like CoolSculpting® , SculpSure® or truSculpt iD®, which depend on the death and destruction of your living tissue, and the accompanying recovery and discomfort. UltraSlim offers faster results than either of those destructive treatments, with no pain or downtime.
How Does UltraSlim® Work?
UltraSlim® uses a specific wavelength of visible red light that opens the pores on the fat cell wall, allowing the fat to leak out of the cells for up to 48 hours. This red light is cool to the touch and does not cause heat or cellular damage to the fat cells. As a result, no unwanted tissue side effects have been noted with UltraSlim®. Patients do not experience any discomfort during treatment, which typically lasts about 32 minutes.
Additionally, this red light therapy causes a photochemical reaction in skin cells that can tighten skin and create a more youthful appearance in the treated area. This technique has been used in hospitals for medical purposes for many years to accelerate healing.
UltraSlim® can help many people lose unwanted pounds, but it is not appropriate for every person. If you are pregnant, have active cancer, or are sensitive to light therapy, you should consider another technique for your goals. During your initial consultation, your provider will review your needs and discuss your goals to determine if UltraSlim® is right for you. You should also be in good general health, have reasonable expectations for the result, and desire a slimmer contour in one or more targeted areas.
UltraSlim® Fat Reduction Before & After
How Many Fat Reduction Treatments Will I Need?
While some benefits should be visible after the first treatment, the vast majority of patients opt to receive a multi-treatment package in order to achieve their desired outcome. The number of sessions will vary based on your individual characteristics, number of areas to treat, and other factors. Treatment plans can range from as little as three to as many as 24 treatments. Typical treatment plans are generally between 6-8 treatments. We will review the estimated number of sessions you will need during your consultation. It’s important to remember that everyone responds a little differently to UltraSlim®. While it can work for most people (100% of people in the FDA trials lost fat), those with faster metabolisms, such as people who exercise somewhat regularly and follow a nutritious diet, tend to see more pronounced effects. We encourage our patients to maintain healthy habits to optimize their outcome.
UltraSlim® Fat Reduction Results
Patients lose an average of 3.5″ and 1.6 liters of fat combined from the waist, hips, and thighs at each visit. In multi-site clinical trials, UltraSlim® was proven 100% effective for all patients. Losses at each visit ranged from 1 5/8″ and 24 fl. oz. to 10″ and 1.2 gallons of fat! 98% of patients lose at least 2″ of fat at each visit!
UltraSlim® is designed to be painless, comfortable, and relatively quick. Treatment of the torso takes about 32 minutes, and you can return to your normal schedule following the procedure. There are no limitations on activity, and you should see continued fat loss over the next week in addition to more immediate results.
