What Buyers Like About The Ultima 20

Buyers of this machine enjoy these features:

  • This unit is small in size but huge in treatment delivery.
  • The controls are simple, concentrated as dials at the top of the unit. Their simplicity is particularly remarkable given the complexity of the available treatment options. The large LCD screen makes it easy to see the various settings as the operator switches among them.
  • Treatment time can be cut in half thanks to the dual channels and the ability to apply separate treatment to two individual areas of the body at the same time.

What Buyers Don’t Like About The Ultima 20
