Achieve even better results with Fat Freezing
Don’t just Freeze, Freeze and Tighten!
How to achieve even better results with your cryolipolysis device.
Cryolipolysis is ideal for patients with firm skin over excess pockets or rolls of stubborn fat. Cryolipolysis will destroy the fat cells meaning people with normal skin tone will notice their skin shrinks back following the fat freezing. However not all patients have normal skin tone or firm skin, especially older patients who may have a significant amount of laxity in the skin over the area of fat treated. Cryolipolysis will destroy the fat cells but will not treat skin laxity. Older patients or those with loose and sagging skin will greatly benefit from a tissue tightening procedures afterwards.
This is where ULTRAFORMER HIFU comes in. Ultraformer delivers HIFU (High intensity focused ultrasound) energy below the skin. For those not familiar with HIFU; it targets three layers of the superficial and dermis along with SMAS, which is the same layer of tissue that surgeons pull tight in a face lift. As this thermal energy safely heats the tissue, it contracts resulting in tightening of the skin and formation of new collagen, which provides longer-term tightening effect. Most patients only require one treatment. Immediate results can been seen after the first treatment, results will continue to improve for several months.
The UTRAFORMER is excellent for post pregnancy tummies, where skin laxity over fat pockets if is a common complaint among women. The notorious ‘mummy tummy’ can been treated by using both the CRYOLIPOLYSIS fat freezing machine and the ULTRAFORMER in combination with excellent results. ULTRAFORMER is not only limited to loose skin on the abdomen, it can be used to tighten skin anywhere on the face or the body, including the knees and arms.
Prevent uneven results following cryolipolysis
It is not uncommon for patients to notice and complain of uneven results following cryolipolysis. Typically the area of skin following a fat freezing treatment should be vigorously massaged for a considerable time. Then patients should wait at least 3 months to see the final results. However some patients still complain of asymmetric results. This could be due to the device, uneven cooling within the suction cup or the massage technique at the end.
Lengthy and strenuous massage can be replaced with AWT (Acoustic Wave Therapy) Liptotripsy, this will provide a vigorous mechanical massage effect using sound waves, to improve the contour and evenness of the skin post fat freezing. It also has the added benefits of speeding up fat absorption by stimulating the lymphatic system, reducing treatment times and is less labour intensive for the practitioners.
More about AWT Lipotripsy
AWT Acoustic Wave Therapy or Lipotripsy originates from Shockwave Therapy, a treatment used to treat soft tissue injuries, it was during these treatments clinicians found improvements to skin texture. AWT Lipotripsy is an excellent ‘prep’ treatment for most aesthetic technologies, readying the skin and the tissue, almost ‘warming it up’ for the main event. In particular AWT Lipotripsy helps to even out the contours of the body following fat removal treatments such as fat freezing, smoothing, tightening, boosting collagen, blood flow and lymphatic drainage. A study in 2013 by Jeffrey A. Hunt, MD concluded that a 3-minute acoustic wave treatments immediately after cryolipolysis and weekly for 3 more weeks results in twice the rate of fat absorption, allowing monthly cryolipolysis treatments and body contouring results in half the time.
If you are offer Fat Freezing, Cryolipolysis or Coolsculpting at your clinic, why not offer your patients event better results with tighter skin, quicker treatments and faster fat absorption?
