What is UltraShape?
UltraShape – Fat Removal Ultrasound is the latest non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound to eliminate fat and reduce body circumference. It has been cleared by the FDA for abdominal circumference reduction by mechanical disruption of fat cells.
The machine delivers ultrasound technology through a hand-held device placed on the targeted area of ultrasonic liposuction, which causes fat to burst and be eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic process.
It is the next- wave technology for ultrasonic liposuction used in the body shaping process. Ultra shape is the process of utilizing sound waves to dissolve the unwanted body fat to bestow the body with the best possible contour. The process is non –invasive as no surgery or incision is required. It is painless and no sense of heating or cooling is felt during the process. With almost no recovery time, ultra shape provides you with slim and desirable body contour within a very short period of time!
How it works?
The Ultra shape ultrasonic liposuction utilizes high frequency ultrasound waves to dissolve the fat inside the body. The body is consists of two types of fats which includes visceral and subcutaneous. The visceral fat is easily removable by proper diet and exercise. On the other hand, the subcutaneous fat is difficult to loose and remains as thick layer underneath the skin. The Ultrashape targets the subcutaneous fat 1.5 cm below the skin to dissolve by destroying the walls of the fat cells which release fats in form of triglycerides.. These triglycerides reach the liver where it is metabolized to products which can be excreted by the body. That’s how the body’s unwanted fat can be removed by natural process.
As the ultrasonic liposuction treatment region is determined by proper diagnosis of skin, a special belt is wrapped around the abdomen and a soothing gel is introduced over your skin. A transducer is used to send the sound waves below the skin layers. As the specialized ultrasound personnel sends the precise amount of ultrasound through the transducer, it only targets the fat cells and the other surrounding cells, tissues, blood vessels, nerves remain unharmed by the process.
Who Is Ultrashape For?
The UltraShape procedure of ultrasonic liposuction is designed for men and women who wish to acquire an improved body shape and contour. It offers a non-surgical alternative for patients seeking reduction of localized fat deposits.
- Instant, selective and permanent fat cell destruction through clinically proven non-thermal focused ultrasound.
- Average patient satisfaction ranges from 86-94% in clinical studies
- No irregularities – homogenous fat reduction throughout the treatment area
- No bruising, swelling, or downtime
- A ‘walk-in, walk-out’ procedure that is painless and comfortable
- Measurable results within just a few weeks
- No reported adverse events
Procedure of the treatment ultrasonic liposuction
Once the transducer is positioned on the surface of the skin, Ultrasound energy is delivered. Acoustic waves of energy are focused at a point of 1.5cm below the skin surface, similar to how a magnifying glass can focus a point of light.
Focused Ultrasound causes rapid changes in pressure and creates bubbles in the fluid between fat cells. These bubbles implode from rapid changes in pressure causing the wall of the fat cells to rupture, releasing the fat in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally.
UltraShape resonates the specific frequency that most effects fat cells. As a result, the Ultra Shape treatment only targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues such as blood vessels, connective tissues and nerves unharmed and protected.
Little or no discomfort during or after treatment, and results can often be seen as early as 2 weeks. Best results are produced after a series of 3 treatments, 2 weeks apart.
