What is UltraShape?
How does UltraShape work?
Using ultrasound energy, UltraShape is able to target fat cells, destroying them instantly, so patients can see visible results within two weeks. Because the ultrasound energy is pulsed and focused, UltraShape is able to target the fat cells mechanically, without heating them and without damaging surrounding tissue. The designated area is treated only once, ensuring a complete and uniform treatment. Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, the content of the cells is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The fat is then processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.
UltraShape Before and After
How noticeable will my results be?
You should see results in as few as two weeks. Clinical results show:
- Average reduction of 3.3 cm (1.3 inches)
- Up to 6.3 cm (nearly 2.5 inches) after 3 treatments
Is UltraShape safe?
The UltraShape system has been shown to be safe and effective for patients.
- Cleared for abdominal circumference reduction
- Clinically demonstrated in multi-center controlled trials
- 10 peer-reviewed published articles and book chapters
- 300,000 treatments have been performed worldwide
Are UltraShape treatments painful?
Most patients report a comfortable experience, and side effects are extremely rare. There are no post-treatment lumps, bumps, soreness or numbness. UltraShape is also a no-downtime treatment, so you can resume your normal activities right away.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend three treatments spaced two weeks apart. Spacing treatments give your body time to clear the fat cells from your system.
How long do the results last?
Because fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments later on. Of course, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the fat cells from coming back.
What makes UltraShape different from other treatments?
UltraShape treatments result in the immediate destruction of fat cells. Measurable results are seen as early as two weeks. UltraShape treatments are also very comfortable and not associated with post-treatment soreness, lumps or bumps. 3D mapping of treatments ensures that energy is delivered uniformly, therefore minimizing contour irregularities—a common side effect of liposuction.
Is UltraShape right for me?
The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to moderately overweight men and women achieve an improved body shape and contour. UltraShape offers an effective non-surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery. To optimize the results of the treatments, it is recommended that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle.
UltraShape is also for men!
