Body Renewal Tip

At Body Renewal we have recognized that before one even starts on any body shaping program it is important that one is close to their ideal weight or BMI (Body Mass Index) as possible. A visit to one of the medical doctors at Body Renewal will determine whether you are carrying excess weight. If patients are overweight, Body Renewal Lite, a body sculpting eating program is recommended. One can expect a weight loss of 8 to 12 kgs in the first month if the program is strictly adhered to. At Body Renewal, since we have incorporated Body renewal Lite into our body shaping treatments, hundreds of patients have successfully lost an average of 6 to15 kgs in the first 6 weeks and dramatically changed the shape of their bodies.

Unfortunately "a perfect body" has not been handed out by nature - it has to be bought and this usually comes at an expensive price. At Body Renewal we have recognized this problem and have come up with a solution - 3 D Body Rejuvenation - a 5 in 1 solution which is affordable for most people. After consultation with the aesthetic doctor, a customized solution to meet your body sculpting needs will be recommended. As best results are usually seen after 3 to 6 treatments every client is provided with a 3 month long solution dependant on budget and expectations. Each treatment has prolonged effects thus a monthly treatment can be given over a period of time until the desired result is achieved. The effect of each treatment is accumulative with best results down the line.

At Body Renewal, with our 3 D Body Renewal combination of treatments, in 2 to 3 months we can take an average body and turn it into a great body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted.

UltraShape® has developed a totally non-invasive body contouring treatment that effectively and safely reduces unsightly fat deposits in men and women. UltraShape® is clinically proven to reduce fat thickness and body circumference. The UltraShape® system is the first scientifically and clinically proven non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring device for both men and women.

The Ultrashape® is a truly amazing device as it non invasively treats subcutaneous fat to remove centimeters from the waist, hips and thighs. A major benefit of Ultrashape® is that there are fewer risks as compared to other fat reducing modalities such as laser lipolysis (SmartLipo/SlimLipo/ LipoLite) or traditional liposuction.

Benefits of Ultrashape® in comparison to pre-procedure liposuction: No pain medication, no topical anesthesia, no needles, no surgery, no injection of a tumescent medium, no traumatizing of normal tissue. All of these procedures are a significant risk for the patient. This is a truly walk in, walk out procedure.

Benefits of Ultrashape® post procedure: no pain medication necessary, no bruising, no swelling, no recovery time, no activity restrictions, no compression garments, and no downtime.

Given the choice, most people would rather choose a non invasive procedure like Ultrashape® to remove their unwanted fat than choose invasive procedures like traditional liposuction and laser lipolysis, which are invasive procedures with post operative side effects and downtime.

Liposuction is the most commonly used technique for fat reduction; however, it is associated with severe risks such as embolism, nerve compression, skin necrosis, problems with anesthesia, infection, visceral perforations and seroma. Furthermore the success of liposuction and laser lipolysis is highly dependent on the skills and experience of the surgeon, therefore results can vary considerably. Hence, there is need for a safer, consistent non-invasive technology such as Ultrashape® to achieve fat reduction and improve the body silhouette.

The Ultrashape® system incorporates patented non-thermal selective focused ultrasound technology which is designed to produce mechanical, non-thermal, acoustic effects which target and selectively disrupt fat cells, leaving surrounding critical structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue intact.

The Ultrashape® uses a patented transducer to deliver focused ultrasound energy at a precise depth within the subcutaneous tissue; the subcutaneous fat layer. Specific, pre-set ultrasound parameters ensure that only the fat cells within the treatment area are targeted and that neighboring tissues such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact.

A unique feature of Ultrashape® technology is its highly sophisticated optical tracking and guiding system engineered to ensure that a targeted area is treated only once, thoroughly and uniformly.

Ultrashape® is for patients looking for a procedure to treat unwanted fat that offers advantages beyond traditional liposuction and laser lipolysis, both of which are invasive procedures.

Ultrashape® treatment focuses on

  • the abdomen,
  • thighs ("saddle bags")
  • and flanks ("love handles")

The Ultrashape® procedure is ideal for someone in their 20s to 50s who is ready to augment their exercise regimen with a non-invasive procedure that yields noticeable results. Ultrashape® is also perfect for a post pregnancy body or to even out contour irregularities post liposuction and laser lipolysis.

After the initial consultation with the doctor, the Ultrashape® treatment takes place in a medical treatment room. The treatment area is marked and prepared whilst the patient lies back on a comfortable contour treatment bed. The real-time tracking system guarantees treatment precision and homogenous treatment results.

During the Ultrashape® treatment, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the Ultrashape® treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed via the body's natural mechanisms and excreted.

In a multi-center controlled clinical trial, an average of 2 cm reduction in circumference was achieved after a single treatment of the abdomen, outer thighs, or flanks. Clinical results show an average reduction of four centimeters and as much as ten centimeters after 3 treatments. In independent studies and in commercial use, multiple treatments have shown incremental circumference reduction and high patient satisfaction.

Most patients report a painless and comfortable experience with side effects being extremely rare. Patients are immediately able to resume their daily routine.

As soon as the session is over, one can immediately resume your daily routine as there is no recuperation period. Patients state that there is no post-treatment pain or discomfort. The skin surface remains smooth and the fat texture remains homogenous. There is no bruising, swelling or skin colour change as can be expected post traditional liposuction and laser lipolysis.

  • Age less than 18 years
  • Pregnancy, lactating mothers, or anticipated pregnancy
  • Pacemaker, implanted cardiac defibrillator, or other electromagnetic implant
  • Severe hyperlipidaemia, or fatty liver
  • Hepatitis or liver disease
  • Connective issue disease
  • Bleeding disorder

Extensive research confirms that the UltraShape® Contour 1 system is the first non-invasive technology to produce a non-thermal focused acoustic field at a controlled subcutaneous target resulting in stable selective fat cell wall destruction with preservation of surrounding critical structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. No epidermal or dermal changes were observed clinically or histologically. UltraShape® is the first non-invasive aesthetic technology to be scientifically validated by such comprehensive pre-clinical research.

Three Ultrashape ® treatments spaced 1 month apart are needed for best results

The UltraShape® procedure is available in 57 countries and over 100,000 patient treatments have been performed worldwide with high patient satisfaction. The UltraShape® Contour I received the CE Mark in 2005 and a medical device license from Health Canada in 2007.

The safety and effectiveness of the UltraShape® solution are endorsed by extensive clinical trials.

Body Renewal is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating resistant fat. We call it 3 D Body Renewal. Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it's not sufficient. Abnormal exercise resistant fat has different forms and grades and thus success needs a combination of treatments that include improved lymphatic drainage, reduction of fat cells, radiofrequency heating of connective tissue and collagen stimulation. 3 D Body Renewal, a 5 in 1 treatment, provides all of the above.

At Body Renewal, 3 D Body Renewal combines Ultrashape® with Lipodissolve, Radiofrequency, Carboxytherapy and a medical weight loss program for best body sculpting results.

At Body Renewal, with our 3 D Body Renewal combination of treatments, in 2 to 3 months we can take an average body and turn it into a great body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted.

Yes, Ultrashape® safely treats all skin types without significant pain or down-time. It can erase centimeters of the areas treated and the appearance of resistant fat is noticeably improved in only 3 treatment sessions, one month apart. The only patients who cannot be treated are pregnant females or patients with pace makers.

At Body Renewal we have a large number of lasers and devices available for body shaping and our doctors are able to choose the best device to suit your requirements. Our doctors specialise in body shaping treatments and will be able to advise you on what is best for your problem.

The Ultrashape™ can be done as a stand alone treatment but for superior results, a combination package such as 3D Body Renewal is recommended as treatments are packaged together at a discounted rate.
