UltraShape is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive body contouring technique that eliminates fat cells in the abdomen and on the flanks. It uses ultrasound technology to target fat without damaging the surrounding tissue. As fat cells are destroyed, fat is released in the form of triglycerides, which your liver then processes and removes from your body. Once the targeted fat cells are eliminated, they can’t regenerate, although other fat cells in the surrounding areas can grow bigger
An UltraShape procedure usually takes up to an hour. We apply a gel to the targeted area, place a special belt around your abdomen, then place a transducer over the treatment area to deliver focused, pulsed ultrasound energy below the skin surface. You may feel a slight tingling or warming sensation. The procedure is fairly gentle on the skin; patients often say it is a comfortable procedure. There is generally no downtime, no discomfort, and no side effects.
Most patients begin to see results about two weeks after treatment. For optimal results, we generally recommend multiple treatment sessions depending on your individual body and the results you seek.
