ULTRASHAPE: Our investigations continue

Posted on June 23, 2009 in Shape Management

UltrashapeIf there is one procedure most people desire, it’s to lose a few inches from the waist, hips and thighs. Although diet and exercise are the primary means of controlling the pounds, it would be an ideal situation if we could somehow help nature along, without resorting to liposuction and other invasive procedures.

A new technology, known as UltraShape, has been shown to reduce both fat and cellulite, and has been used in European salons for several years. A 2006 clinical trial demonstrated that, following three treatments, the average loss in fat thickness amounted to 2.28 cm, with a mean circumference reduction of 3.95 cm. The results of the study were published in the April 2007 issue of Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, the journal for the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery.

Although most people who took part in the numerous studies were highly satisfied with the results, some who have undergone the procedure have experienced little improvement. For this reason, Dr. Ebrahim is investigating the viability of offering UltraShape at Afterglow.

As a valued client, your personal feedback would be greatly appreciated. Knowing if you would choose to undergo UltraShape treatments will help us better evaluate whether or not we should invest in this popular technology. So please let us know your feelings at your earliest convenience by calling (604) 980-3993, contacting us via webform or leaving a comment at the bottom of this posting.

UltraShape has received positive reviews in the media, including CTV, ABC and FOX TV and Vogue magazine. You can read more about the technology and see before and after images here.

We look forward to hearing more from Afterglow clients, to help us make an informed decision.
