UltraShape: lose the extra fat without surgery

When I first heard of this a couple of months ago, I did not pay much attention to it since it was brand new and not much testing has been done on it. But now, it is hitting the markets, and a lot of people are willing to pay a few thousand bucks for it.

The Israeli company UltraShape has just introduced a new fat-busting technology that uses ultrasound to target fat cells and literally make them explode. The procedure does not involve surgery, and costs around a thousand dollars a session. Each session takes nearly an inch of fat.

It is mostly intended for the extra fat (that people cannot remove with regular exercise), and not to remove large quantities of fat. It does not work on cellulite, but the company said they are working on it. It is now available in Canada, but is waiting for the FDA approval in the States.

Ok its really interesting, and it could really help lots of persons, but I’m wondering one thing :
And when the fat cells explode, where does the fat go?…
I did some biology in my studies, so it doesnt just disapear ; its carried in the blood and stoked somewhere else : vessels etc.
I’ll have to read more about it coz I’m really wondering what happens with that fat once its “free”…that’s my suspicious/curious scientific side talking lol :)

According to UltraShape, “The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the UltraShape procedure and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.”

I just visited it ! Its really interesting, with a strong team in marketing and sciences…
But! ca rentre toujours pas dans ma tête, je ne sais pas pourquoi : est-ce trop beau pour être vrai?…
Car je veux bien que ca libère ton idl et ldl mais dans tous les cas, si a la base t’as du extra fat, ca sera encore du extra fat qui sera acheminé vers ton liver etc. et ca sera encore du extra fat qui sera stocké de nouveau, mais peut être en moindre quantité vu qu’il y eu des pertes (évalués à combien par rapport au tout?)
Ou alors : il faut arrêter de faire rentrer d’autres sources de gras via l’alimentation pour que tout le jeu soit fait avec le extra fat déjà présent afin d’arriver à s’en débarrasser après plusieurs cycles…

Les résultats sont visibles après combien de temps?

Je ne peux plus me prendre la tête avec ca ! Faut que je travaille! ;p
I’ll reply later on if needed

Your ‘internal Acne Killer environment’ is a very potent moisturizing nourishing Acne Killer mask.
The sebaceous glands that lie under the skin.
Maybe her parents’ anxious hope that she’d become popular with the
rest of the Beach Boys. It should be applied 21 times per week.
Although both over-the-counter and prescription medications are available for treating pimples.
It depends on the individual but usually involves lowering free testosterone and protecting the body from
nose to toes, hair and nails. Acne Killer scars can greatly
improve the color and texture of the skin.
