UltraShape uses gentle ultrasound technology to destroy the walls of fat cells and releases the fat as triglycerides. These triglycerides are processed through the liver and then eliminated from the body naturally. The surrounding nerves, tissue, and muscles are not harmed during the UltraShape body contour procedure. Free of anesthetics and incisions, the UltraShape procedure is pleasant and relaxing with no pain or discomfort.
When you arrive for your appointment, your technician will wrap a special belt around your abdomen and apply a soothing gel. The technician will then glide the UltraShape transducer over the treatment area and deliver ultrasound pulses to destroy fat cells. Treatments take less than an hour. For the best results, schedule treatments two weeks apart to give your body time to clear the fat cells from your system.
UltraShape Power uses targeted pulsed ultrasound technology to destroy fat cells. The technology directs ultrasound waves into the fat cells under the skin surface. The changing pressure waves stress the fat cell membrane causing the cell to rupture and immediately die. Skin, nerve, blood vessel and other tissue are not affected. The treatments are painless and you can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. There is no downtime due to pain, anesthesia or surgery. Results begin to be noticed as early as two weeks with maximum results at about 12 weeks.
