What is Quanta Shape?
Quanta Shape is a revolutionary treatment that uses ultrasound therapy and lymphatic massage to create the best non-surgical body shaping experience possible. This treatment consists of two devices working in tandem to reduce targeted areas of fatty tissue. The first device emits ultrasound energy, while the second is a vacuum device. Upon completion, cellulite is reduced leaving a smoother and more beautiful look for your body. This treatment is completely safe and is non-surgical with no downtime.
The best candidates for Quanta Shape are those who are within 15 to 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. This is not a tool to help the obese lose weight. They will not obtain the desired results with this treatment. Ideal candidates possess unwanted bulges in the areas of the inner thigh, back, abdomen, or love handles. Quanta Shape is also ideally suited for those seeking a procedure that requires no downtime, pain, discomfort, or surgery. For those that are not a candidate for CoolSculpting, Quanta Shape can be an ideal alternative. This is not an alternative for healthy eating and regular exercise.
Areas It Treats
Quanta Shape targets and removes small pockets of unwanted fat located under the skin. It is designed to treat the following areas:
- Love Handles/Flanks
- Lower and Upper Abdomen
- Upper Arms
- Lower Legs
- Inner Thighs
- Outer Thighs (Saddle Bags)
How Does It Work?
During the treatment, the physician uses the ultrasound hand piece to administer a low frequency beam of ultrasound energy just below the surface of the skin. The pressure created by the energy causes microbubbles that disrupt fat cells. Only the unwanted fat is targeted so surrounding nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue, and skin are not affected.
The vacuum hand piece is used next to stimulate the lymphatic system. By doing this, the lymphatic and vascular systems transport the content of the fat cells to the liver. Next, the fat is processed through the liver naturally through a metabolic process, which eliminates the fat from the body. The vacuum also increases the circulation of the blood and can help open up lymph nodes both pre- and post-treatment.
Results To Expect
The fat cells removed by Quanta Shape are completely and permanently destroyed. Consequently, the results are long lasting if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle with a steady diet and regular exercise, and avoid significant weight gain. The areas treated by Quanta Shape result in a smoother and better overall body contour. On average, Quanta Shape removes about one inch of fat per hour treatment. However, it is vital for patients to understand that the percentage of fat lost is dependent upon the type of fat and percentage of body fat. Furthermore, because the lymphatic system can drain just so much at a time, the treatment areas are small.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there any care required following a treatment?
Because of the non-invasive nature of Quanta Shape, no special care is required. There is also no downtime, as patients can immediately return to their daily routines. There will also be no pain or discomfort after the treatment. Adequate hydration is recommended before and after a treatment.
What advantage does Quanta Shape offer over diet and exercise alone?
Diet and exercise enables you to reduce non-specific weight, while Quanta Shape directly treats those problem areas that seem immune to diet and exercise. Quanta Shape selectively eliminates those stubborn fat deposits, which results in an overall better body contour.
What should I expect and feel during a treatment?
The treatment begins with the opening of the lymphatic channels. This helps in excreting the fat after the treatment. The dual-head ultrasound hand piece will be used next where you will feel a warming sensation in your skin where treatment is occurring. Your skin is constantly monitored for skin temperature and mild redness. After the skin has reached the desired endpoints, the lymphatic hand piece is used to drain the fat tissue, which causes no discomfort.
How long does a treatment take?
The first session typically takes about two hours to treat one area of fat reduction. Following the first treatment, each treatment will take about an hour.
