Doctor Lands New Fat Reduction Technology for Michigan
TROY, Mich., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Kathleen Gilmore, MD, a Troy based physician and founder of Procerus Skin Care with locations in both Ann Arbor and Troy is the first physician in the Midwest to offer the UltraShape™, a breakthrough treatment recently FDA cleared for Fat Cell Destruction.
The UltraShape System developed by medical device leader Syneron Candela is the first and only non invasive fat reduction treatment that uses pulsed focused ultrasound to immediately and comfortably destroy fat cells, resulting in measurable outcomes in as little as two weeks.
The UltraShape device works by emitting waves of focused pulsed ultrasonic energy that converge at a closely confined area where patients want to target stubborn fat. Ultrasound is comfortably delivered to the treatment area, while keeping surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles intact and undamaged. Fat cells are destroyed and eliminated by the body’s natural processes as soon as two weeks after treatment resulting in very visible immediate reduction.
“We are very excited about offering UltraShape to our patients. UltraShape’s patented technology allows us to precisely deliver ultrasound energy with extraordinary precision so we can target and destroy fat cells immediately. Unlike traditional ultrasound technology, UltraShape delivers energy in pulses rather than in a single continuous delivery which is often painful. The result is a quick, safe and comfortable treatment experience without discomfort, lumps, bumps or soreness associated with many other non-invasive fat reduction treatments,” says Dr. Gilmore, who has also been involved in research for bringing multiple body treatment devices for fat reduction and body contouring to market and for approval by the FDA. “Treatments with UltraShape take less than an hour and patients can go right back to their normal activities without any disruption. Nothing works faster than UltraShape,” Gilmore adds.
In the randomized, controlled clinical study of UltraShape which was performed at three clinical sites in the US and one site outside of the US, a total of 150 subjects were treated and followed for up to four months. Ninety four percent of patients saw a measurable circumferential reduction with 90 percent of patients being satisfied with their treatment outcomes. This is one of the largest studies ever performed in the area of non-invasive aesthetics.
The UltraShape is a very versatile device that is effective for the reduction of fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. UltraShape is FDA cleared for fat cell destruction and is used to improve body shape and contour.
The UltraShape device has been used in over 300,000 procedures worldwide, with an excellent safety and efficacy profile.
