UltraShape Body Contouring
UltraShape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses ultrasound energy to liquefy and destroy fat cells. This body contouring method is an excellent non-surgical solution for patients who already lead a healthy lifestyle but are having trouble eliminating stubborn fat deposits. UltraShape treatments are now available at Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics in Cerritos, CA!
How does it work?
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. Ultrashape is performed in a series of 3 sessions, spaced 2 weeks apart.
UltraShape delivers some of the best fat reduction results of non-invasive body contouring technologies. Clinical studies have shown that UltraShape can reduce fat cells in a treatment area by up to 32 percent!
Am I a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for UltraShape fat reduction are within 20-30 pounds of their ideal weight (UltraShape is not a weight-loss tool). Patients should already lead a healthy lifestyle and have realistic expectations for their results.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?
UltraShape is best for candidates who want to improve the look of their waistline, abdomen, and love handles. UltraShape can also be used to treat the upper arms, thighs, underneath the chin, and around the armpits.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Most patients feel a mild heating sensation during the procedure; however, it’s not painful or uncomfortable. During the procedure, the UltraShape hand-piece will be placed on the treatment area and moved around to evenly distribute ultrasound energy.
Is Any Downtime Needed?
UltraShape is a non-invasive procedure and causes no trauma to healthy tissue. There is no downtime or recovery associated with the procedure so patients are free to return to their daily routine directly following treatment. Common side effects may include redness and mild blistering around the treatment area. These side effects tend to dissipate on their own within the first week.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Visible results typically start to appear after 3 sessions, each of which should be scheduled two weeks apart.
