Cincy Health brings QuantaShape right here to Cincinnati
Body Contouring is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that only takes a little more than an hour to perform. QuantaShape combines ultrasound, lymphatic drainage and massage to warm the area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. Many patients have compared the experience to a hot stone massage.
Areas of treatment:
- Love handles
- Lower and upper abdoman
- Upper arm
- Lower legs
- Inner and outer thighs
During the treatment, the medical specialist uses the ultrasound hand piece to administer a low frequency beam of ultrasound energy just below the surface of the skin. The pressure created by the energy causes micro bubbles to disrupt the fat cells. Only the unwanted fat is targeted so surrounding nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue, and skin are not affected.
Next, the vacuum hand piece is used to stimulate the lymphatic system. By doing this, the lymphatic and vascular systems transport the content of the fat cells to the liver. Next, the fat is processed though the liver naturally, which eliminates the fat from the body.
The fat cells removed by QuantaShape are completely and permanently destroyed. Consequently, the results are long lasting if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle with steady diet and regular exercise. The areas treated result i a smoother and better overall body contour. On average, QuantaShape removes about one inch of fat per hour. However, it is vital for patients to understand that the percentage of fat lost is dependent upon the type of fat and percentage of body fat. Furthermore, because the lymphatic system can drain just so much fat at a time, the treatment areas are small.
