Two beams of ultrasound energy warm and treat fatty tissue beneath the skin. This promotes fat cell mobility and encourages the body to metabolize, drain or reabsorb excess fluids. Ultrasound therapy is delivered using a special concave handpiece. The physician follows the contour of the patient's body, targeting fatty tissue at a specific depth beneath the skin. By moving the handpiece over a patient’s body, a physician can treat the tissue layer that is 1 to 5 cm below the surface of the skin. Heat produced by, the ultrasound energy creates a “micromassage” effect on the fat cells.


By warming the connective tissue, redistributing fat and encouraging blood circulation, Med-Contour temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite to slim and smooth your body shape. Zonal massage stimulates the lymphatic system to drain away excess toxins and fats used in conjunction with the ultrasound therapy, zonal massage can help your body drain and metabolize unwanted fluids from targeted problem areas. Zonal Massages is recommended for all Med-Contour patients immediately following ultrasound treatments as end results have found to be even better when both therapies are combined.


It is also gentle enough to be used after liposuction to encourage faster healing. Therapists report that many patients notice significant improvement to the area being treated after the first session, on average 2 - 3 cms. Following the procedure, patients can resume normal activity without pain or downtime.

‘Med Contour is a medical device which we have seen some fantastic results. Combined even with surgery my patients see faster healing and better end results’ Dr Ravi Jain

Med Contour as well as other machines by General Project are available for demonstrations at their showroom base in Harley Street.

Technical Characteristics

Med Contour dual works with a double ultrasound generator which generates a carrier frequency of 1 MHz. This carrier frequency can be modulated from 20 to 60 kHz.

Each emitter emits a mean power of 3 W/cm2 with peaks that can reach 30 W/cm2.

For Med Contour dual , General Project has applied a double ultrasound generator of 1 MHz, which can be modulated from 20 to 60 kHz.

The 1 MHz frequency is certainly a safe frequency, and has no harmful effects; it has been used for a long time also in the treatment of muscular traumas, and has been subject to in-depth research in the medical literature.
