Here is a before and after picture of me:
Ultrasound weight loss is one of these trendy lose weight therapies which seem to pop up every once in a while. But does it really work? How much weight can we lose using it? Is it safe? Are there any side effects? Is it a natural weight loss? Is it better than any other weight loss program? All these questions will be answered in this post. Furthermore we will provide some general information on ultra sound and its development.
Right now it is especially popular in the UK mostly in London. However the therapy has been popular in the past in Germany as well, keep reading for my wife’s ultrasound weight loss review.
1. What is ultrasound?Ultrasound is a sound wave that is applied in certain cycles using a specific frequency. It is used for many things, foremost for ultrasonic examinations of pregnant women. Therefore it is absolutely safe to use!
Ultrasound was first found in 1893 but wasn´t used in the medicine till 1917, when first experiments were done with it.
Today it is among the most used procedures of medicine.
2. How does it help in weight loss?The ultrasound produces small sound waves that are shot onto your fat cells, which is basically like a “massage” for them. The “massages“ movement selectively breaks down the fat cells in a particular area of your body, whilst protecting the outside layers of nerves, skin and the blood vessels.
One of it big advantages are supposed to be fat loss on the spot, for example you want to lose lose belly fat this method might be for you. Furthermore you could lose fat on your hips or legs wherever your problem areas are located.
It is considered an option for people how want to lose weight without a surgery and/or changing their eating habits and/or doing more sport. The procedure is supposed to be 100% painless. Only very few patients find the procedure aggravating. However there might be problems with the connective tissue of your skin, see my wife´s review for more information.
3. How much does it cost?Ultrasound weight loss therapies aren´t cheap they usually cost between $500- $1000. This is due to the fact that ultrasound machines are quite expensive. Also there is a special certification needed to use them as a therapist. Furthermore ultrasound weight loss centers are rare and with little competition they can ask higher prices.
It seems like quick weight loss has its price.
4. Ultrasound weight loss reviews / does it work? (By my wife)I heard about ultrasound weight loss at the TV news and I immediately thought that sounds too good to be true. However I tried it, I had six sessions over the course of three weeks. For these sessions I paid $850, which my husband and I considered very expensive. Nonetheless I was very desperate to lose some weight at that time so I tried it out. One session takes about 3 hours.
Over the course of three weeks I lost about 5 pounds of fat, which I considered quite well at that time. However after the sessions had ended I went back to my old weight in no time, maybe one week at the most.
My sister also tried it with very similar results. She had twelve sessions over six weeks and lost 8 pounds. Two weeks after the sessions were over she had returned to her old weight. Furthermore she got skin problems, her skin is now somewhat loser then before. This is the main reason why I would never do it again, since having skin problems is a total nightmare for me. The reason for this might be that the therapy has weakened the connective tissue of her skin. Other side effects couldn´t be spotted by anyone of us. She paid around $1000 for her ultrasound weight loss.
A friend of mine tried ultrasound weight loss also. She had 16 sessions over the course of 8 weeks and last around 6 pounds paying $900. Her weight returned to normal after 1 week, too. However she had great results with her cellulite, which is now basically nonexistent anymore!
It seems like the skill level of the physician doing the procedure is very important, so if you want to do it pick wisely. The prices of the therapy doesn´t seem to indicate its quality. Furthermore you should keep in mind that ultrasound weight loss is fairly new and there might be some drastic improvements in the procedure in the future. But at the moment it just seems to be a quick money maker for the physicians who perform it like acupuncture weight loss. If you hope for an extreme weight loss you will most definitely be disappointed! At least it seems to be a natural weight loss for a short period of time.
All in all I wouldn´t recommend ultrasound weight loss to anyone. You just don´t get enough for the expenses. I mean if you are very wealthy and want to look better for a short period of time this might be an option, but for an average Jane this is just a waste of money! Better save you money and buy new pair of Jogging shoes or a home trainer!
