UltraShape is an FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasonic energy to reduce unwanted fat and contour the body. By reducing fat cells in the body, UltraShape can reduce abdominal layer fat up to 32 percent, while results vary for each patient.
The body has two types of fat cells – visceral and subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is easily removed with diet and exercise but subcutaneous fat, which sits right underneath the skin’s surface, is harder to remove. UltraShape targets stubborn subcutaneous fat and permanently removes this type of fat from the body.
UltraShape works by delivering ultrasound energy through the dermis to underlying fat cells. The ultrasound energy liquefies the fat cells, which are later removed by the body over a period of several weeks. These fat cells are permanently destroyed, resulting in a reduction of overall fat without causing harm to surrounding tissue. Ultrashape is performed in a series of three sessions, spaced two weeks apart.
Benefits of UltraShape include:
- Permanent fat reduction
- No surgery or incisions
- No downtime
- Quick and painless
- Visible results in just 3 treatments
Who is a candidate for UltraShape?
UltraShape is not meant as a weight loss procedure. Patients should be within a reasonable range of their ideal weight. The ideal UltraShape candidate has a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less and can pinch an inch or so of fat around their middle. Patients should be committed to a diet and exercise plan and have realistic expectations for their results. UltraShape is not a weight loss procedure. Patients with stubborn fat in the abdomen/stomach area, thighs, and love handles may benefit from UltraShape.
One of the many benefits of UltraShape is that it requires no downtime and patients typically do not experience bruising or swelling. It’s a comfortable procedure that allows patients to return to their normal activities immediately. Patients report the procedure being comfortable with no associated pain. In trials, 96% of patients experienced a measurable reduction in fat cells and 94% of patients were satisfied with their body contouring results. Patients see measurable improvements within 2 weeks of their first UltraShape treatment, after which there is typically a 5% decrease in fat cells.. Many patients require a series of 3 sessions for optimal results.
