What is the UltraShape procedure?
The clinically-proven UltraShape procedure is the most widely used non-invasive solution for fat destruction and body sculpting. It uses pulsed focused ultrasound to target and reduce unwanted localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference and improve body shape.
How does the technology work?
The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled pulsed focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.
What happens to the fat after the procedure?
During the UltraShape procedure, the fat cells are destroyed. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is broken down and transported to the liver. The fat is processed via the body’s natural mechanisms and turns into building blocks for energy.
Is the procedure painful in any way?
What UltraShape won’t do is cause you pain or harm surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle. In fact, in a recent clinical study, 100% of patient report the treatment as being comfortable.
The procedure is a pleasant, relaxing experience. Since it’s nonsurgical, the process is completely free of anesthetics or incisions.
After you and your doctor determine the exact treatment area, a specially designed belt will be wrapped around your abdomen and a soothing gel will be applied to your skin. A trained technician will glide the UltraShape transducer over the treatment area, gently delivering virtually painless ultrasound pulses. Treatments take an hour or less, so sit back and take it easy as UltraShape takes care of your excess fat.
