UltraShape®

 

UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound energy for selective fat cell destruction; it has an impressive 94% patient satisfaction rate. This painless procedure doesn’t harm the surrounding skin, nerves or blood vessels, and leaves no visible signs of treatment. The energy only targets and ruptures fat cells.

Conditions Treated

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

  • Stomach/Abs
  • Arms
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Gynecomastia (Male breasts)

How Does It Work?

Using ultrasound energy pulses, UltraShape is able to target and rupture fat cells without damaging any of the surrounding tissues. When the walls of the fat cells burst, the triglycerides that make up the inside of the cells are released and transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver, used as energy, and then processed and eliminated naturally from the body.

What To Expect

  • The specific treatment area is determined by you and your provider and marked on your body. A trained UltraShape technician will then glide the UltraShape transducer over the treatment area, gently delivering painless ultrasound pulses to destroy fat cells.
  • Most patients describe the pulse as a mild to moderate tingling or “buzz” feeling, sometimes accompanied with slight warmth in the treated area.*
  • In most cases, a series of three treatments will be scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, and each one will take approximately 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size of the treatment area.*
  • UltraShape is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no incisions, no anesthetics, no swelling, no bruising, no pain, and no downtime.

After Treatment

  • A somewhat limited diet is required for 1 day prior and 5 days after each UltraShape treatment. This includes an increased intake of water, limited fatty foods and no alcohol.
  • UltraShape destroys fat cells, leaving patients with long-lasting results so long as a healthy and active lifestyle is maintained.*
  • Results can begin to show in as little as 2-4 weeks after the first treatment, with ultimate results at 8-10 weeks (about a month after the final treatment).*

Commonly Asked Questions

  • How long do UltraShape results last?
  • UltraShape is FDA-cleared for fat cell destruction, meaning the fat cells in the treated areas are gone for good. However, UltraShape is not a solution for weight loss. Remaining fat cells in the treated areas and in other parts of the body can still expand. A healthy lifestyle is essential to maintaining a healthy weight. If a balanced, nutritious diet and routine exercise are kept up, results will be long-lasting.* UltraShape is great for those who already lead a healthy, active life but have specific problem areas where diet and exercise alone have not been successful at eliminating stubborn fat pockets.
