UltraShape is a new FDA-approved procedure that almost sounds too good to be true – a non-surgical way to remove stubborn belly fat with no needles, no anesthesia, and no pain. It does not harm surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle. In a recent clinical study, 100% of patient report the treatment as being comfortable.
Other popular nonsurgical methods for fat removal and body contouring use extreme heat or cold to destroy fat cells. UltraShape uses focused, pulsed ultrasound waves that destroy the fat cells most stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise, a.k.a. the subcutaneous fat layer. Treatment takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
Immediately after treatment, patients can return to normal activities – including returning to work, exercise, and even yoga. There is no downtime whatsoever. In fact, your results will be even more dramatic when coupled with an exercise routine.
UltraShape works best for patients with a BMI under 30. It is not meant as a weight loss procedure and will only take a few pounds off. It can reduce the waist or abdomen by several inches. For optimal results, the UltraShape treatment is most effective when used to complement an active lifestyle and healthy eating habits. Additionally, most patients see results right away since there is no swelling or bruising.
