Who is Getting The Nowak Ultimate Laser Body Contouring and Ulthera Skin Tightening Procedure?
Healthy women and men of any age with full range of skin types and colors who have tried diet and exercise but are still unable to lose those few pounds or stubborn fat pockets. It’s for those people who want a leaner, shapelier body and who are looking for a safe fat removal treatment with minimal recovery time. This procedure also works well on people who want to improve the appearance of their unwanted stretch marks scars.
How It Works
Dr. Nowak uses the Accusculpt Laser-Liposuction technology because it’s the most accurate and specific wave length available to target the unwanted fat. It’s safer and less likely to target the skin (vs. heat the skin) so there’s no chance of burning the skin to leave marks or indentations as can happen with the other technologies or inexperienced aesthetic practitioners who have little training.
This procedure utilizes the tumescent technique that is performed with safe local anesthesia so no general anesthesia or IV sedation is needed. It’s then followed by the laser to heat to melt fat deposits making them easier to remove.
In, addition, Dr. Nowak utilizes the power-assisted technology which rapidly moves the small cannula back and forth so it glides easily through the tissue removing small amounts of fat at a time. This movement creates a vibration that some patients describe as being similar to a massage providing greater patient comfort.
Next, Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening is applied to tighten and smooth your skin. What makes Ulthera technology different is the way it allows the surgeon to look into the skin to find the right level or layer to be targeted. The second ultrasound delivers ultrasonic heat specifically at that desired level to then heat tissue that lifts and tightens loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Ultherapy also creates new collagen which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. This procedure also reduces the appearance of stretch mark and scars.
The length of the procedure is customized for the individual and the time it takes is dependent on the body areas being treated. Adding laser and skin tightening procedures adds additional time to the procedure.
What to Expect
Patients may have some bruising or swelling after treatment, but these will fade as healing progresses. Typically, a patient is asked to walk one or two more miles the day after their procedure and can add other exercises after one week.
Shortly after your procedure, you should see a noticeable difference in your shape which will continue to improve as swelling subsides. Although results can be seen both immediately as well as over time as sagging, wrinkled skin is replaced with smoother, younger-looking skin. The best results are seen six months after treatment.
