UltraShape® – fat reduction ultrasound technology
UltraShape® harnesses the power of ultrasonic energy to target and destroy subcutaneous fat in the abdomen, flanks, and upper thighs. It is not a surgery, but a non-invasive procedure utilizing a special device that uses that energy to break down fat cells and evacuate the triglycerides contained therein. The fat is simply flushed away using the body’s natural metabolic processes and broken down further by the liver. (Don’t worry – it’s no harder on your system than a greasy meal!)
UltraShape® is an outpatient procedure that requires zero downtime and preparation. Research indicates that in general, patients should receive three treatments spaced two to three weeks apart to enjoy maximum results. Peak results are generally reached within four weeks of the final treatment. Patients may return to their normal activities immediately following UltraShape® treatment.
Each UltraShape® fat reduction session lasts about 45 minutes. Before beginning the procedure, the doctor will apply a gel-like substance to the area to be treated. This is to help the UltraShape® device move more smoothly around your body. You will not need sedation or any medicine. You will simply rest comfortably and can use an electronic device, read a book, etc. There are no activity restrictions following an UltraShape® treatment.
UltraShape® should not replace diet or exercise and is not intended for morbidly obese individuals. Patients of average weight and those who are mildly overweight may benefit most from UltraShape®. After completing the number of recommended treatments, on average most patients see a loss in total body circumference of around four centimeters.
