What is UltraShape?
UltraShape is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to destroy fat cells without damaging your surrounding tissue or nerves. UltraShape is typically used in fighting fat in your stubborn fatty deposits such as saddle bags, belly fat, cellulite, and love handles. These are body areas that often don’t respond to stomach crunches, jogging, or dieting.
If you have a low pain threshold, you may be attracted to the fact that ultrasound energy emitted by the UltraShape device is considered pain free. Vibrations from the device may cause minimal discomfort. UltraShape patients also have the benefit of returning to their daily routine without downtime.
How does UltraShape work?
The UltraShape device is a hand-help unit the size of a hair dryer (called the transducer). The device is pressed against the unwanted fat region to deliver the ultrasound energy and to vibrate the tissue.
This targeting prevents damage to surrounding skin and tissue. UltraShape can only affect a small region of fat per treatment, thus, multiple sessions are required.
A competitor to Ultrashape is CoolSculpting which break ups and destroys fat cells using a technique that cools the skin and fat region.
