UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive, body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat destruction. UltraShape targets and instantly destroys stubborn fat, without discomfort or downtime. Unlike other non-invasive fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape is virtually painless and leaves no unwanted signs of treatment. The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California performed the latest FDA clinical trial for the abdomen area, so you can be assured of our skill and knowledge of UltraShape.
How does UltraShape work?
UltraShape works by delivering ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below your skin’s surface. Rapidly changing pressure waves create vapor cavities in the fat cells. This stresses the fat cell membranes, causing them to rupture—all while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed. The body breaks down (or processes) the destroyed fat cells, just like it breaks down other fats. After being processed by the liver, the waste is eliminated naturally.
Who is a good candidate for UltraShape?
UltraShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat or genetically acquired problem areas. For best results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended. UltraShape is not recommended for major weight loss. The ideal UltraShape candidate has a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less and can pinch an inch or so of fat around their middle.
Is there any downtime after an UltraShape treatment?
Ultrashape is a true no downtime procedure. There is no visible signs of treatment- no lumps, bumps or bruises and you can resume your normal daily activities right away.
Does UltraShape hurt?
100% of patients reported feeling comfortable during treatment. In a recent clinical study, patients rated pain as 0.7 on scale of 0 to 10.
How many UltraShape treatments will I need?
Typically, three treatments spaced 2 weeks apart are recommended. This timing gives your body time to clear the fat cells from your system, maximizing your results.
How quickly will I see results?
Some people reported seeing results as early as 2 weeks after their first treatment, but you should expect to see the best results after a series of 3 treatments, 2 weeks apart.
How much reduction of fat can I expect in the treated area?
In a recent clinical trial there was an average 32% reduction in the fat layer thickness after 3 sessions. The fat cells that are treated are destroyed. However, while the treated cells cannot regrow, other neighboring fat cells can increase in size, so—for best results—it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
“I exercise 5 days a week, but there was still a stubborn “pooch” and laxity in my mid-section from having a baby. I thought I noticed a change; then I saw my before and after photos and was incredibly impressed! This was such a simple and painless procedure… the skin is more toned and my “pooch” is looking flatter. I would highly recommend this procedure- no downtime, comfortable and easy.” – B.C. (actual Laser & Skin patient)
