After producing their bundles of joy, much as they love their children, many women find their self-confidence hit for six by bulging bellies, loose skin, stretch marks and stubborn post-partum fat and/or cellulite (especially if it’s waaaay post-partum).
And celebrity “yummy mummies” who bounce back into suspiciously fast pre-pregnancy shape can put depressingly unrealistic pressure on new mums, and those still struggling with weight and “trouble” spots even years after the event.
Advances in technology have made “getting bodies back” eminently achievable, and without surgery.
Ultrasonic face lifting has soared in popularity over the past few years, with results (in appropriate candidates) rivalling those of surgery – but without the trauma and downtime of same.
Now those results are achievable for the body, using multi-functional cartridges especially designed for treatment of the body, with Ultraformer III.
Harnessing MMFU (Micro and Macro Focused Ultrasound) technology, it is a solution for anyone who suffers from skin laxity and/or stubborn fat pockets on the neck, abdomen, buttocks, knees, upper arms, knees and inner thighs, lower leg, ankle and back. Thus it makes an ideal post-pregnancy tummy treatment.
Currently, 4 and 7Mhz transducers create Micro coagulation into the dermis and Superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) while 2Mh transducers deliver Macro energy into subcutaneous fat to remove fat cells. This innovation of transducers generates eight times the ultrasound energy compared with other procedures using similar technology.
During the Ultraformer III body treatment, fat cells are damaged and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic drainage systems and disposed of naturally by the body.
Many patients report the level of pain is tolerable. The only discomforting period is when the ultrasound energy is being delivered. However, after treatment the sensations subside.
There will be slight redness for a few hours following the treatment, and patients will also experience mild swelling for a few weeks. Some patients (although it is uncommon) may experience slight bruising and numbness. This usually resolves within 2-4 weeks.
The skin’s response to this energy is to produce fresh new collagen and elastin.
Lifting and tightening of the skin and reduction of fat will be noticed over a period of two to three months and further improvements can appear for up to six months after a single procedcure.
