What Is UltraShape®?

UltraShape® is a unique, non-surgical body sculpting device that addresses stubborn fatty deposits. The UltraShape® device uses ultrasound (acoustic waves) to target subcutaneous fat cells and instantly destroy them. Unlike surgery or liposuction, UltraShape® does not involve incisions, surgery, or insertion of cannula (a sterile tube) for fat evacuation.

How UltraShape® Works

A unique transducer. The device’s head, or transducer, is cased with a silver-coated ceramic dome and filled with a medium that creates ultrasonic energy. The rounded shape of the head enables the device to control how the acoustic waves behave, causing them to converge at the focus. The result: the device delivers low energy to the surface (the skin), while delivering focused energy to the depths of the fat layer. The precision focus protects the neighboring tissues (blood vessels, nerves, and muscles) from damage.

Energy in bursts. Rather than emitting energy in a sustained manner, the UltraShape® device delivers the acoustic waves in pulses. This creates a minimal change in temperature, barely perceptible to the adjacent tissues. Unlike other fat reduction technologies, which rely on heat (thermal) energy to melt fat, UltraShape® eliminates fat mechanically. Once the fat is destroyed, the body clears waste through its natural cleansing process.

The treatments are painless and can be done during a lunchtime visit at the Dermatology Institute of Southern California. After an UltraShape® session, you can resume your daily activities immediately–no downtime is necessary. With UltraShape® you can lose up to 2 sizes, 3 treatments are recommended spaces at 2 weeks apart for optimal results.

  • Seeking a non-surgical solution to reduce fat and slim the abdomen, hips and thighs
  • Healthy and not obese

Although UltraShape® can tone areas of concern, it is not a substitution for proper diet and regular exercise. To maintain the benefits of your treatments, you should follow a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight fluctuations.
