If your increased waist size is due to fat, UltraShape may help you lose up to one to three inches in three sessions spaced two weeks apart. UltraShape uses ultrasound waves to kill fat cells and permanently eliminate them from your body. Three sessions are usually sufficient to give patients the results they want, but there is no reason to discontinue treatments as long as you still have fat you'd like to treat. Because UltraShape is noninvasive and usually has only minimal short-term side effects, it is appropriate for any healthy individual – regardless of age. Consult a board-certified dermatologist to come up with the best options for you.
The standard abdominal protocol for UltraShape is 3 treatments performed every other week. Many studies have shown 3-6 cm circumferential reduction when the standard protocol is performed. We have had many patients whom have been extremely happy with their results after the standard protocol and have decided to undergo additional UltraShape treatments for further improvement.
It is important to make sure that your increased waistline is due to fat accumulation and not simply loss of abdominal muscle tone. If you have at least one inch thickness of fat then UltraShape may be a good option for you. It is not age discriminatory and will affect the fat cells in the same way independent of your age. It affects her different from person to person but he should be able to lose between one and 3 inches off your waistline after a series of 3 treatments according to the companies literature.
Thank you for your question. UltraShape is a great
non-invasive treatment for exercise and diet resistant areas of fat. To reach
optimal results three treatments are recommended, however, you are able to have
more than 3 treatments if your provider believes you will benefit from the
additional procedures. I recommend you consult with a qualified physician in
your area to plan the best treatment options for you.
UltraShape body contour reduces stubborn fat deposits but is not intended for weight loss. It does not reduce the internal visceral fat. Three treatments are usually required on average but additional treatments can be performed if fat still remains. The number of inches lost varies but the average is one to two inches. Patients remark that their clothes do fit better.
in our practice we recommend that patients alternate Ultrashape for fat reduction and body shaping with Velashape. Velashape will help tighten the loose skin and Ultrashape will use cavitation ultrasound energy to destroy the fat cells.
As long as there is fat cells, the Ultrashape will continue to work.
Typically, 6 treatments with Ultrashape will give you the desired effects.
Ultrashape studies showed about 2-6cm reduction in 3 treatments. I tell people 1 pants size typically but if it is used for contouring then you may not get a size reduction but rather a shape improvement. You can do as many treatments as the fat your have available. 3 treatments 2 weeks apart is a good start and with the proper diet and exercise and more treatments you can get pretty signficant improvements. It is best to combine with velashape or another deep heating procedure to help with skin tightening and more fat reduction. Best, Dr. Emer.
