You’ve probably been hearing about it and wondering if UltraShape could be a treatment option for you. So here’s a brief Q&A about this popular new procedure. Take a look, and then call us for more information or to make an appointment:
Q: What is UltraShape?
A: It’s a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that destroys fat cells using targeted pulsed non-thermal ultrasound technology.
Q: Is UltraShape the same as liposuction?
A: UltraShape is different and not considered a replacement for liposuction.
- Liposuction is a surgical procedure that in one treatment removes about 75% of fat from the treated areas of the body. It requires about a two to three week recovery period, and final results are visible within about six months.
- UltraShape is a non-invasive method that requires about two to three treatments and provides about 25% fat reduction. There is no downtime and some results are visible immediately. Additional results appear over the one to two months of the three recommended treatments, and ultimate results can be seen at about 10 weeks.
- Both are FDA-approved procedures, designed to contour and shape.
Q: Is it a better choice than liposuction?
A: That depends on you and your goals. We can evaluate you at your appointment and discuss both options to find out which is best for your individual needs.
Q: What can UltraShape be used for?
A: Ultrashape is excellent for contouring mild to moderate localized areas of excessive fatty tissue. It can be used to treat thighs, love handles, abdominal pooches, arm fat, bra fat, knee fat – just about anywhere you need to remove some fat and contour the body.
Q: What is the treatment like?
A: UltraShape is non-invasive. Fat cell disruption is done by mechanical vibration, and there is no heat or cold involved — or discomfort. Since there is no damage from heating or freezing, there’s no swelling or inflammation after treatments.
Q: Why should you be interested?
A: UltraShape is a painless and safe treatment option if you want to avoid surgery but still improve your shape by reducing areas of stubborn fat deposits.
