What is Med Contour? How does it differ from other non-invasive treatments?
Med Contour is a non-invasive ultrasound and massage therapy treatment that smoothes, firms and shapes the body. Med Contour temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite, and increases local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The treatment uses ultrasound waves to warm the targeted problem area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. It then uses zonal lymphatic massage to drain away excess toxins and lipids for removal from the body. Unlike other non-invasive body shaping procedures, Med Contour is a comfortable massage-like treatment that only requires three to five sessions for noticeable results.
What does non-invasive mean?
Non-invasive means no cuts, no incisions, and no surgery. Med Contour is a non-invasive, nonsurgical technique. Non-invasive treatments typically have little-to-no recovery period and few side-effects. Results with non-invasive treatments are typically less dramatic than that achieved with minimally invasive techniques, like VASER Lipo®.
What kind of results can I expect?
You can expect a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite as well as reduction in your fatty areas. Areas treated with Med Contour appear more smooth and “natural-looking” than before the treatment
Many of our patients noticed 1-3 cm reduction in circumference of their tummies after their 1st session!
How does Med Contour work?
Med Contour uses high-frequency sound waves for local heat therapy and zonal massage to drain away excess toxins and fats. Heat therapy warms the treatment area and creates a “micromassage” effect on the fat cells. Zonal massage works with the lymphatic system to drain away excess toxins and fats, and increase local blood circulation.
Together, these two processes:
• Smooth and shape the body by temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite
• Improve local blood circulation, and
• Reduce pain and swelling that can occur after liposuction.
What body areas can be treated with Med Contour?
At Riverbanks we have found VASER Shape to be most effective on the abdomen and flanks and thighs in patients who are not obese.
Where is Med Contour performed?
Med Contour is performed in one of our treatment rooms at Riverbanks in Harpenden or at our sister clinic in Harley Street by our highly trained medical aestheticians. Med Contour does not require anaesthesia of any kind.
How soon will I see my results?
While you may see results after the first treatment, patients typically see the most visible results after a regimen of three to five sessions. We advise booking a course of six treatments for starters.
Is there a recovery period?
No. Following the procedure, you can resume normal activity without pain or downtime. Your skin may appear slightly pink and feel warm after the procedure due to the increased local blood circulation in the area. This should resolve itself within a few hours after the treatment.
Is Med Contour right for me?
Although Med Contour is recommended for a wide range of patients, you should be realistic about the kinds of results you expect from the treatment. Med Contour is great for fine tuning and trimming rather than large debulking of fat.
How much does the treatment cost?
Med Contour requires special equipment and administration by a trained practitioner. The total cost of your procedure will vary depending upon the number of body areas treated and the total number of sessions required to achieve your desired results.
