Ultrasound Fat Reduction Q & A
What is ultrasound fat reduction?
VShape Ultra’s ultrasound fat reduction is an aesthetic treatment offered at 360 Medical Weight Specialists to rid your body of unwanted fat without surgery. Dr. Gartner uses the multiplatform aesthetic tool to contour a number of problem areas, including:
- Belly and love handles
- Upper arms
The vShape Ultra trims away fat to reshape your body without anesthesia or downtime.
How does ultrasound fat reduction work?
The ultrasound technology offered by vShape Ultra destroys fat cells by altering the integrity of the cell itself. During treatment, Dr. Gartner places the ultrasound wand over the specified area and the soundwaves target the fat cells under your skin, causing the cell to break down. Your body than processes the destroyed cells and eliminates them from your body for good.
Ultrasound fat reduction also offers an added bonus of reducing the appearance of cellulite by tightening the skin while it reduces fat.
The treatment itself is painless and you may even find it relaxing. To get the best results, you may need up to four treatments set at two-week intervals. Dr. Gartner creates your custom treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect.
Who is a good candidate for ultrasound fat reduction?
Dr. Gartner determines if you’re a good candidate for ultrasound fat reduction after a consultation and a review of your health and weight history. The treatment isn’t meant to serve as a means of weight loss, but as a tool to help improve your shape. Ideally, you should be close to or at your goal weight before treatment.
If you’re struggling to lose the weight, Dr. Gartner can help. She is a weight-loss expert and offers personalized plans to help you shed pounds permanently.
How can I maintain my results?
The ultrasound fat reduction offered by 360 Medical Weight Specialists can get rid of unwanted fat and improve your shape, but it doesn’t mean you can give up your healthy diet and exercise routine. Dr. Gartner knows better than anyone that the keys to reaching and staying at a healthy weight are a good maintenance diet, an exercise plan, and regular support, and she provides all three at her Walnut Creek office.
