How does UltraSlim technology work?

UltraSlim® stimulated lipolysis is the process where a special patented type of light passes through the skin tissue and into adipose tissue to stimulate the fat cells. The fat cells receive the signal as a sign of starvation or an otherwise necessary energy release. This causes pores in the cell membrane to open and release the fat, then it is removed with your waste.

What is lipolysis?

Lipolysis is the breakdown of lipids and involves hydrolysis of triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids.  The dead fat cells are removed through the body's natural elimination process.  Once these fat cells leave the body, they are gone for good!

What results should I expect?

The typical patient loses a net average of 3.5 total inches after their first treatment. Totally transform your body with as few as 6 treatments! We guarantee 2 total inches of loss on your first treatment!

Will I see results immediately?

Most patients who try Ultraslim experience immediate results and most people lose an average of 3.5 inches and 1.6 liters of fat in 32 minutes. After a few treatments, clients can achieve their desired weight and also enjoy tighter skin.

Is UltraSlim / UltraSmooth for everybody?

UltraSlim is not for everyone.  Please call to (708)476-8205 to schedule a consultation.

How do I maximize my weight loss?

We encourage weekly therapy due to the fact that immediately after your treatment, the pores in the fat cell will close in about 48 to 72 hours. The liberated contents will be expelled in your waste over the next few days. We also encourage you to schedule some time with our registered dietician, Dr. Blaire Maliwat. Book here.

How often can I get the non-invasive facelift?

This therapy can be done three times a week. Your youthful appearance may be maintained with monthly touch-ups.

How does UltraSmooth technology work?

The UltraSmooth® cellulite treatment visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite. Each treatment lasts about 20 minutes per area, as the light reduces visible cellulite producing results that dieting and exercise cannot achieve. UltraSmooth® drains the fat from the cellulite leaving the skin smooth and vibrant. Potential zones include the back of the thigh, the front of the thigh, the buttocks, or the lower abdomen. These areas are treated three times a week for two weeks for optimum results.

Is UltraSlim for men too?

Absolutely!  Everyone has different "problem" areas-- from "love handles" to the "belly!" Another area UltraSlim is good for is Gynecomastia. In very simple terms, it is enlargement of the male chest which is caused by excessive growth of breast tissue or gland.

We read that Dr. Romberg is doing a clinical trial for lymphedema patients.  Do we have to pay for this?

Lymphedema (limf-uh-DEE-muh) is a build-up of lymph fluid in the fatty tissues just under your skin. This build-up causes swelling, most often in the arms or legs. Lymphedema can also affect the face, neck, abdomen (belly), and genitals, depending on the part of the body that was treated.

Dr. Romberg is a Board Certified General Surgeon & Wound Care Specialist.  Dr. Romberg is the first to offer a clinical trial investigating the effects of photobiomodulation on patients with lymphedema. Up to 10 million Americans and hundreds of millions worldwide suffer from lymphedema and lymphatic disease with NO CURE to date. Eligible participants will be enrolled in the study at no charge.

What does the treatment feel like?

It’s slightly warm and very pleasant. The light is positioned over your body several inches away, never touching you. Many patients fall asleep during treatment.

Is there any pain or discomfort?

No! UltraSlim® and UltraSmooth have no pain, no discomfort, and no downtime.

How many treatments will I need?

Each body is different. Schedule a consultation today, and we will create a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

How safe is this technology?

UltraSlim® is safer than any other body contouring technology. UltraSlim® is the only body contouring device that is Risk Group 1, the same risk group as a tongue depressor in your mouth.

All other body contouring devices risk serious side effects and adverse outcomes such as pain, bruising, and swelling. With our dedication to safety, there is no pain, no discomfort, and no side effects. Call today to schedule a consultation!
