UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell destruction. It’s not like anything out there.
Unlike liposuction, UltraShape is non-surgical—which means no incisions, anesthetics, or recovery time.
And unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape is painless* and leaves no visible signs of treatment.
All you’re left with are smooth, contoured results, often seen as quickly as 2 weeks after the first treatment.
Unlike other body shaping technologies that use heat or freezing techniques, UltraShape uses a pure mechanical effect to destroy fat cells without inducing thermal damage. This unique feature of UltraShape technology results in a safe and comfortable treatment experience with no visible signs of treatment and no downtime.
The newest fat-blasting treatment on the block, UltraShape, with over 300,000 procedures performed worldwide, was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) for non-invasive reduction of abdominal circumference via fat cell destruction of last year.
UltraShape® - FAQ
Using ultrasound energy, UltraShape is able to target fat cells, destroying them instantly, so patients can see visible results within two weeks. Because the ultrasound energy is pulsed and focused, UltraShape is able to target the fat cells mechanically, without heating them and without damaging surrounding tissue. The designated area is treated only once, ensuring a complete and uniform treatment.
Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, the content of the cells is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The fat is then processed via the body’s natural mechanisms
You should see results in as few as two weeks. Clinical results show:
• Average reduction of 3.3 cm (1.3 inches)
• Up to 6.3 cm (nearly 2.5 inches) after 3 treatments
The UltraShape system has been shown to be safe and effective for patients.
• Cleared for abdominal circumference reduction
• Clinically demonstrated in multi-center controlled trials
• 10 peer-reviewed published articles and book chapters
• 300,000 treatments have been performed worldwide
Most patients report a comfortable experience, and side effects are extremely rare. There are no post treatment lumps, bumps, soreness or numbness. UltraShape is also a no-downtime treatment, so you can resume your normal activities right away.
We recommend three treatments spaced two weeks apart. Spacing treatments gives your body time to clear the fat cells from your system.
Because fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments later on. Of course, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the fat cells from coming back.
UltraShape treatments result in the immediate destruction of fat cells. Measurable results are seen as early as two weeks. UltraShape treatments are also very comfortable and not associated with post treatment soreness, lumps or bumps. 3D mapping of treatments ensures that energy is delivered uniformly, therefore minimizing contour irregularities—a common side effect of liposuction.
The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to moderately overweight men and women achieve an improved body shape and contour. UltraShape offers an effective non-surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery. To optimize the results of the treatments, it is recommended that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle.
