The Ultra Z system is a minimally invasive and precise body contouring technology that utilized to emulsify and remove unwanted fat in a target area, while protecting the important tissue, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. Patients report little bruising, and low to minimal pain. Compression garments have to be worn for 6 weeks. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic. Results are permanent.
The amount of injections is dependent on the size of the area to be treated in cm². It takes 2-3 sessions to begin to see cm loss in the treated areas. Treatment sessions are spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Up to 8 sessions are required. This procedure works best in small focal fatty deposits. For permanent fat loss in larger areas, liposuction is more effective.
