Bella Contour is a non-surgical, painless and safe treatment for fast, targeted body contouring in common problem areas such as the abdomen, 'love handles', 'muffin top', flanks, buttocks and thighs. Visible and measurable results are often seen right after the first treatment session.
What is Bella Contour?
Bella Contour is based on REAL™ (Resonant Amplification of Lipid Metabolism) technology. A combination of ultrasound and electric fields cause the fatty tissues to vibrate and enter into self-resonance. At the same time, the permeability of the fat cell membrane is increased, allowing the lipids to escape and enter into the lymphatic system.
What happens to the fat that is released from the cells during treatment?
The lipids that are released from the fat cells enter the blood stream and are transported via the lymphatic system to the liver, where they become available for the body to use as energy.
The lipids released during the 40-minute Bella Contour ultrasound and interferential therapy session are available for the body during the next 48 hours. Our bodies use energy constantly, for everything from breathing to performing intense physical activity. It is highly advisable to exercise more, directly following the session, and throughout the treatment period, to optimize the result of the treatment.
Bella Contour has also been shown to raise the body's consumption of fat. By changing the ratio of fat to carbohydrates utilized for energy, the body naturally uses more of the fat, which is released by the treatment as an energy source (reference: http://www.realaesthetics.com/images/stories/bellacontour/clinicstudies/increasing-effects-bellacontour-treatment05.pdf).
What does the treatment feel like? Is it safe?
The session is totally without discomfort, a little like a warm massage. One treatment session lasts for about an hour. There is no recovery time needed. The treatment is very safe and there are no known side effects. This device is also FDA-approved for the treatment of cellulite.
How effective is Bella Contour? How many sessions do I need?
Patients often see improvement even after a single treatment, but a series is usually needed to achieve optimal results.
In an overseas post marketing study of more than 1000 individuals, over 90% achieved greater than a 4 cm reduction in waist circumference after 10 treatments.
In our experience at Skincentral, some patients can achieve a 7-10 cm reduction in waist circumference in 4 treatments. However, for other patients, more sessions may be required to achieve the best results.
We recommend 2-3 treatments per week, with not less than 48 hours in between, as the body needs time to process the fat released from the session. Routine maintenance treatment is usually not required.
Who Are The Best Candidates?
Bella Contour is a regional contouring treatment and not a weight loss program. It is most suitable for someone who is in the normal to slightly / moderately overweight range with localized unwanted fat at the abdomen, hips and thighs.
It is a treatment suitable for both men and women who have no major health issues.
