Cosmedica introduces UltraShape™ - a non-invasive treatment for reducing excess body fat
VICTORIA, BC Cosmedica today launched an innovative, clinically proven treatment for reducing excess body fat and improving body contour called UltraShape™. The treatment is approved by Health Canada to reduce fat on the tummy, thighs and hips. Ultrashape™ is the first and only non-invasive technology specifically designed to remove fat cells. “UltraShape™ is best suited to patients who have a healthy lifestyle, eat properly and get regular exercise but who retain excess fat in a few areas,” says Dr. Mark Lupin, medical director of Cosmedica and the first physician to introduce this technology to Canada.
The UltraShape™ treatment uses computer guided focused ultrasound to break down unwanted fat by selectively targeting fat cells and disrupting them without harming surrounding tissues. The fat is gradually removed through the body’s natural mechanisms. Results may be seen within weeks and improve over a number of treatments. There is generally no discomfort and no downtime for patients.
The UltraShape™ treatment is designed to help average to overweight patients improve their body contour.
