Can you tell me what is non-surgical liposuction and localized permanent fat reduction?

SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland provide the most high-tech and advanced non-surgical liposuction and permanent fat reduction program and fat reduction technologies in Canada. At SpaMedica, patients receive a combination of the best technologies that are applied in a non-invasive way to permanently reduce areas of unwanted fat. One single technology will not be able to provide permanent fat reduction, but a combination of two or more technologies can provide the best non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction results. Dr. Mulholland has created a program that combines advanced technologies to deliver the results you want. After the treatments, patients can return to their daily activities such as work or exercise immediately.

The BodyFX™ permanent fat reduction treatment is one of the technologies used in SpaMedica’s non-surgical liposuction program which was developed by Dr. Mulholland. BodyFX™ procedures are performed once a week for six weeks. Each zone is treated for 20 minutes. During this time, up to 30% of fat cells will undergo apoptosis and cell death. It is important that the patient receives 6 treatments over the 6 week period on the same area to achieve permanent fat reduction and skin tightening. The BodyFX™ treatments are comfortable and require no topical anesthesia.

After competing the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction, fat reduction program, patients should expect to lose about 5 cm of circumferential fat off the abdomen. Studies have shown that it is possible to have 700 cc of permanent fat reduction. As for skin tightening, there is a 15-20% increase in collagen production. The BodyFX™ will be combined with other technologies during the program so that patients can have the best possible permanent fat reduction results.

Dr. Mulholland has helped develop several bulk heating radiofrequency technologies. Some of these include: the VelaSmooth, VelaShape and the Venus Freeze. These devices may be used to enhance skin tightening during the fat reduction program, but the BodyFx has proven to be the best, permanent fat killer for non-surgical liposuction patients.

SpaMedica also combine high-frequency focused ultrasound technology (HIFU), such as the UltraShape® and Liposonix®-like fat reduction devices. The UltraShape® deploys high frequency focused ultrasound energy that reaches deep under the skin in the center of your unwanted fat without any pain.

Who is an ideal candidate for the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction program and fat reduction technologies?

The best candidates for SpaMedica’s non-surgical liposuction fat reduction program are people who have realistic expectations about the amount of fat that can be reduced. Good candidates are also willing to maintain their weight. Non-surgical liposuction fat reduction patients can lose between two and six centimetres of fat permanently in the targeted areas of fat.  One of the most important things is that non-surgical liposuction patients must be willing to maintain their weight to achieve long-term permanent fat reduction.

Are there any contraindications to the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction program?

Those who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, have infections or skin cancers in the area of the treatment are not ideal candidates for the non-surgical liposuction program.

How long are the fat reduction treatments?

Each treatment takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the areas that are being treated. Fat reduction treatments are performed once a week for six weeks for the best results. In total, there are 6 BodyFX™ treatments and 3 UltraShape® treatments in the program.

How long is the recovery period after UltraShape® or BodyFX™ treatments?

The SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction permanent fat reduction program has no specific down time. This is very ideal for patients who lead an active lifestyle. After UltraShape or BodyFx treatments, there will be a bit of redness and swelling but patients can go back to their daily activities immediately.

What happens during the non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program?

One of the technologies used in SpaMedica’s non-surgical liposuction program is bulk heating radiofrequency technology. This technology is specifically designed to permanently kill fat to provide permanent fat reduction. The BodyFX™ is a high-frequency electrical current system that is gently applied to the external surface of the unwanted focal fat collection.

The applicator gently sucks unwanted fat, tissue and skin into the treatment chamber. At the same time, the applicator applies high-frequency electrical current that bulk heats the skin and the fat.  The precise temperature and electrical current control means there is no chance of pain and thermal injury when the skin is heated. The heating also leads to dermal thickening and skin contraction. To have your skin contracted at the same time of fat reduction is key to getting the best possible contour result. In many clinics, technologies used can reduce the patient’s fat but they are not able to tighten their skin. The bulk heating of the underlying fat lowers the threshold for a process called electroporation.

BodyFX Toronto

Figure 1. BodyFX™ provides uses radiofrequency energy to give Toronto non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction patients permanent fat reduction and skin tightening results. With this technology, high-voltage electric pulses painlessly alter the permeability of the fat cell membrane permanently. After the fat cell membrane is altered, large organic molecules and cations flow into the fat cell. This overwhelms its ability to survive, resulting in the exposed fat cell’s death.

Studies have shown that it is possible to have 700 cc of permanent fat reduction. As for skin tightening, there is a 15-20% increase in collagen production. The BodyFX™ will be combined with other technologies during the program so that patients can have the best possible permanent fat reduction results.

Toronto non-surgical liposuction patients undergoing the SpaMedica fat reduction BodyFX™ program can expect 700-800 cc of fat reduced per zone. As for skin contraction, there is a 15-20% increase in skin collagen production and significant circumferential reduction.

Dr. Mulholland has helped develop several bulk heating radiofrequency technologies. Some of these include: the VelaSmooth, VelaShape and the Venus Freeze.

UltraShape Applied to Toronto Non Surgical Liposuction Patient

Figure 5.  UltraShape® is a high-frequency focused ultrasound fat reduction device.  This device has been proven to provide permanent fat cell death by delivering gentle high-frequency focused ultrasound.

After a thin layer of ultrasound gel is applied on the skin, the UltraShape® transducer is applied on the skin. Video and computer-guided systems ensure that the focused ultrasound beams come to the prescribed focal point at various levels within your fat to customize the reduction of your unwanted bulge of fat.  The Ultrasound waves vibrate your fat cells until they implode and die, a process called cavitation”.

B. UltraShape releases high frequency and pulse ultrasound waves that focus on various depths within your unwanted fat.  C.  The ultrasound waves deliver a vibration of the fat cell resulting from the sound waves, which implodes the fat cell without a lot of inflammation or swelling. Because the UltraShape results in a gentle fat cell death, with very little swelling, the permanent fat reduction results are seen within a couple of weeks.

How long will my fat reduction results last?

SpaMedica’s non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program ensures that the fat cells will not return, will not store carbohydrates and will not re-expand. As long as patients maintain their weight, their fat reduction and contour improvement results will be permanent.

If patients gain weight and intake excessive carbohydrate, this could result in the expansion of fat cells that have been left in the area of the contour improvement. These cells and other fat cells in your body will swell after weight gain. This tends to ruin the improved contour results. Weight maintenance, just as in liposuction surgery, is important after the program.

How much will my SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction permanent fat reduction program cost?

Depending on the number of zones to be treated and how big they are, the fees vary. In general, though, the series of treatments with combined technologies costs about $2,000 for the first zone.  This non-surgical liposuction program includes 6 BodyFX™ treatments and 3 UltraShape® treatments over 6 weeks. The second and third zones which are usually combined can be performed at a lower cost. The SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction program costs approximately one-third of the price of liposuction surgery such as SmartLipo™ or BodyTite™.

What is Zerona™ Laser Sliming and Fat Reduction?

Zerona™ is a non-invasive laser fat reduction treatment device. Zerona™ is used for the non-surgical fat reduction from the mid-section and truncal areas of the body.

How does Zerona™ fat reduction work?

Zerona™ is an array of non-invasive diode lasers that circle over the mid-section of the body approximately six inches over the skin. The diode lasers painlessly penetrate the skin and alter the fat cell membrane, rendering it more porous. The porous nature of the fat cell results in movement of large molecules and ions in and out of the fat cell, ultimately disabling the fat cell membrane and allowing the Trigylcerides to exit the cell. As the Trigylcerides exit the cell, the fat cell becomes smaller. Over the 9-15 Zerona™ treatment protocol (3 times per week for 3-4 weeks), millions of superficial fat cells shrink resulting a fat reduction and body contour improvement. Like millions of grapes that all shrink at once, the cumulative effect of the shrinking fat cells results in a body contour circumferential reduction and contour improvement. The Zerona™ fat reduction, laser slimming device works on all fat collections below the breast, including the upper arms, upper and lower abdomen, hips, and inner and outer thighs.

Who is a candidate for Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming?

Individuals who are perfect candidates for Zerona™ fat reduction are those individuals that want a generalized reduction in body fat with or without the SpaMedica focal fat reduction non-surgical liposuction program. Perfect candidates are realistic and understand that the average results achieved are four to six centimeters of reduction achieved over multiple pinch zones.

Contraindications to Zerona™ treatment include unrealistic expectations, anyone who might be pregnant and any areas of open sores, infections or cancers in the areas of treatment.

How does the Combining Zerona fat reduction and laser slimming with other fat reduction technologies work?

The Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming protocol calls for 3 treatments per week for 3-4 weeks for generalize truncal fat reduction. Zerona™ is then combined with more localized fat reduction technologies, such as BodyFX™ and/or UltraShape™ which give more localized, precise localized fat reduction and non-surgical liposuction results.

Is the Zerona™ fat reduction treatment painful?

The Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming device is not painful. Patients are treated first lying face down and then lying on their back in a relaxing medical spa environment.

How long does the procedure or Zerona™ take?

Patients undergo the Zerona fat reduction treatment for 15 minutes on their back and then 15 minutes on their front. The 30-minute treatments are repeated two to three times a week for 3-4 weeks.

How long is the recovery following Zerona™ fat reduction?

There is no recovery period following the Zerona™ fat reduction treatment. Most patients are encouraged to go right back to activities of daily living, including high-impact aerobic activity.

What kind of results can I expect from my Zerona™ fat reduction program?

Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming patients who follow the program of carbohydrate monitoring, modest exercise and increased water intake generally see between four and eight centimeters of reduction over multiple pinch zones. Most patients are extremely happy with their Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming results if they’ve been compliant with the program. Many patients do combine the Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming with focal fat reduction technology, such as BodyFX™ and UltraShape™ for focal improvements in unwanted areas of collected fat, such as the abdomen and hips, which can be combined with their Zerona™ fat reduction laser slimming technology and treatment program.

What are patients saying about their Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming?

Most patients who are compliant with the program are quite happy with the degree of fat reduction laser slimming that is achieved.

How long will the Zerona™ fat reduction results last?

The fat cells that are injured by the Zerona™ laser slimming laser and are emptied of their fat content will stay small as long as carbohydrate maintenance and weight maintenance is monitored and maintained. Increasing carbohydrate content and intake, increasing one’s weight, will necessarily compromise the aesthetic.

Is there any maintenance required following my Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming?

In general, there is no maintenance required for the Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming program. And overlying skin tightening achieved with bulk heating radiofrequency devices used during the Zerona™ fat reduction program will require maintenance to keep the enhanced skin tautness and improved tightness and contraction.

How much is the Zerona™ laser slimming program?

Zerona™ fat reduction and laser slimming program runs less than $2,000 for a 6 week unlimited program. SpaMedica offers patient financing to assist patients in defraying the costs of the program.
