Cosmedica Clinic in Montreal Introduces New Device for Improved Fat Removal Without Surgery

April 07, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Cosmedica, a full-service Plastic Surgery Clinic located in Montreal, Canada, is pleased to announce that we are the first clinic in the world to offer the completely redesigned UltraShape Contour I – Version 3 device for non-invasive fat removal. UltraShape offers patients a true non-surgical alternative to liposuction with greater safety and no downtime. The new device improves on the original UltraShape Version 1 by combining focused ultrasound and RF (radio-frequency) energy in the same platform. This results in more highly effective destruction of the fat cells under the skin and, for the first time, the firming of overlying loose skin at the same treatment session. Clinical studies have demonstrated an average circumferential loss of 3 cms. with only one treatment using the combination of focused ultrasound and RF energy. Unlike other competing modalities, these in-clinic treatments are painless and leave no bruising, swelling or other side effects. Patients can return to their usual activities immediately and will see results in 2 or 3 weeks.

Cosmedica was the first Plastic Surgery clinic in Canada to offer the original UltraShape Contour I –Version 1 device in 2007 and we have successfully treated over 200 patients with this first device. Dr. Arie Benchetrit, certified Plastic Surgeon and medical director of Cosmedica, has presented his results at several international meetings in Asia, Europe and North America. Dr. Benchetrit presented on the new UltraShape platform at its launch at the IMCAS meeting in Paris in January, 2010.
