What is UltraShape?

Posted in Body Solutions


UltraShape is a type of fat reduction method that is both non-invasive and non-surgical in nature. It may sound too good to be true, but the UltraShape is a device that uses ultrasound to eliminate body fat and create a slimmer appearance in the areas it is applied.

That being said, there is much more to the UltraShape than just a few sound waves destroying fat cells.

The Method

As mentioned above, the UltraShape uses mild ultrasounds to vibrate fat cells. It is vibrated so perfectly that the cells eventually break apart and liquefy.

The UltraShape device is held on pre-determined parts of the body. By focusing on only certain areas, the surrounding tissue is safe from damage. The UltraShape is computerized and is used to track the areas that it is effecting in real time. This gives the operator the ability to focus the ultrasounds and move them around as needed.

Since the device is focused on specific areas, this procedure may require multiple visits. For one area, e.g. abdomen, generally three treatments are necessary. Depending on size of area, the treatment can last up to an hour or more.

Areas of Attention

For the UltraShape, there are certain areas that it can reach which are more difficult for other procedures. With its real time imaging and the level of control that it has, the UltraShape can cover a majority of fatty areas on the body. Among some of the most popular parts to target are the upper and lower abdomen, thighs and flanks.

UltraShape’s main objective is to help contour the body. For example, not only will it take away the fat cells on your abdomen, you will find your size of clothing may drop as well.

It’s Different from Liposuction

Aside from the obvious difference of liposuction being a more invasive surgery, there are a couple of key distinctions:

  • Liposuction surgery – the fat cells are sucked out through a straw-like device. UltraShape destroys the fat cells through pulsed ultrasound waves and the contents are passed out through the body’s natural elimination process.
  • UltraShape is a simple procedure that does not leave any scars or require any kind of anesthesia. You can walk in, have a session with the UltraShape, then walk right out!
  • UltraShape is better at controlling the area of the body to be sculpted, as small areas are covered at one time. Meaning that your results, will be more in tune with what you wanted or expected.
  • Since UltraShape is non-invasive and there is no need for aesthesia, it is less costly than liposuction.
  • UltraShape is done at a consistent rate making sure that there are no lumps or irregularities.
  • UltraShape is a painless procedure.

Side Effects

It’s hard to do any kind of work on your body without having to deal with some side effects. As easy as the UltraShape is, it also shares in these kinds of problems. In some people, the device can cause bruising and irritation of the affected areas, though these are not uncommon for fat removal procedures in general.
