Non-Surgical Fat Reduction by Bella Contour
We are pleased to introduce Bella Contour as an alternative to liposuction for Boston area patients—a new, completely non-invasive, painless technique for removing unwanted fat. SkinCare Physicians is introducing this non-surgical procedure after having extensively studied the technology at our research center in early 2011. The Bella Contour device removes fat painlessly in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, back, and arms. This device is FDA-approved for the treatment of cellulite, and our studies have demonstrated that it is also highly effective at painlessly removing unwanted body fat.
What is Bella Contour?
A non-surgical alternative to liposuction, the Bella Contour procedure uses a combination of gentle ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and vacuum massage to remove unwanted fat painlessly and efficiently. This treatment stimulates fat cells so that fat is released and then eliminated as part of the body's natural metabolic process. This non-invasive, pain-free circumference reduction is safe and effective for the love handles/flanks, buttocks, and abdomen. The benefits are immediate and long-lasting, with slow, steady fat loss occurring over the 10 treatment series.
Is Bella Contour Effective?
Patients see improvement even after a single treatment, but a full series of 10 treatments is needed to achieve optimal improvement. We recommend a series of twice a week procedures for a total of 10 treatments. In over 1000 individuals treated, over 90% achieved greater than a 4 cm (1.5 inches) reduction in waist circumference after 10 treatments. In our studies at SkinCare Physicians, all patients had at least a 4 cm reduction in their abdominal circumference, but several had over 8 cm (3 inches) of reduction after 10 treatments. The procedure is totally painless and, in fact, so comfortable that patients enjoy the 1 hour session as much as a massage.
Is Bella Contour Dangerous?
Studies over the last 5 years in Israel, and more recent studies at SkinCare Physicians, have not resulted in a single significant side effect. The procedure is gentle, painless, and slowly but surely reduces fat in unwanted areas.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Most patients see results after even a single treatment. The more treatments done, the better the results (up to a total of 10 treatments is the recommended total).
Who Are The Best Candidates?
Bella Contour is ideally suited for individuals who are slightly-to-moderately overweight and have unwanted fat around the waist, love handles, upper and lower belly, back and arms.
How Does Bella Contour Differ From CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™?
CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ works best for patients who have mild-to-moderate amounts of extra fat (typically on the love handles or abdomen) that they would like to have removed. Bella Contour is suited for individuals with slightly more unwanted fat and for those individuals who are moderately over weight. These types of individuals have done very well in extensive Bella Contour treatments performed in Israel and in our studies at SkinCare Physicians. Our body sculpting experts at SkinCare Physicians will help you decide which procedure is best for your individual anatomy and concerns.
What Is Post Treatment Recovery Like?
There is absolutely no recovery time after the Bella Contour procedure, and your skin will look completely normal without any signs of treatment. You will be able to return to all your activities immediately after treatment.
