Ultrasound energy is used widely as a way to see images inside our body, like internal organs or fetuses. It can also be used for therapeutic purposes to facilitate the healing of damage in deep tissues and break up kidney stones.
UltraShape® has developed the first ultrasound technology capable of non-invasively disrupting fat cells, and producing definite measurable and durable results. Based on therapeutic ultrasound that has a long history of safe and effective application in medical settings, UltraShape technology uses focused ultrasound waves which are directed at a specific target point on the body where they selectively break down unwanted fat cells without affecting surrounding structures. A unique feature of UltraShape technology is its highly sophisticated optical tracking and guidance systemengineered to ensure safe, effective and uniform treatment. The tracking and guidancesystem ensures that a targeted area is treated only once, thoroughly and uniformly. Energy is delivered only to the desired area, which is marked before exposure. The system is so advanced that it even considers the patient’s movements during the procedure so that they may move freely without compromising treatment!
While UltraShape® energy penetrates the skin, it does not adversely affect surrounding tissues because it causes a mechanical, rather than thermal effect. Other tissue, such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, are left undamaged.
The UltraShape Solution for fat loss
It often takes more than a healthy lifestyle to give your body the shape you want.
UltraShape® has developed a totally non-invasive body contouring treatment that effectively and safely reduces unsightly fat deposits in men and women. UltraShape is clinically proven to reduce fat thickness and body circumference.
Before you resort to radical solutions such as surgery (liposuction, tummy tuck etc.), injections, incisions and other invasive techniques – consult with an UltraShape physician today and see if UltraShape is right for you! Get results with no discomfort, no downtime, no anesthesia and no risk of harmful side effects.
No need for follow-up treatments – results are long lasting.
A new body contour in three treatments!
Designed as a practice based ‘walk-in, walk out’ solution, UltraShape requires no downtime, no follow up maintenance, and no recuperation period. The safe and effective procedure – ranging between 45 to 60 minutes can treat multiple areas like the abdomen, flanks and thighs. Following treatment, patients can immediately resume their daily routines. Clinical results show an average reduction of four centimeters and as much as ten centimeters after 3 treatments.
The UltraShape solution, developed by plastic surgeons and scientists for the medical community, is based on a technological breakthrough that uses ultrasound waves, to selectively break down fat cells without affecting neighboring structures. After treatment, the body’s natural pathways clear away the disrupted fat cells .
The procedure requires no anesthesia or sedation; Equally important, the safety and effectiveness of the UltraShape solution are endorsed by extensive clinical trials
Prof. Jana Hercogová wrote:
“Liposuction is the most commonly used technique for fat reduction; however, it is associated with severe risks such as embolism, nerve compression, skin necrosis, problems with anaesthesia, infection, visceral perforations and seroma.1–3 Furthermore, liposuction success is highly dependent on the skills and experience of the surgeon, therefore results can vary considerably. Hence, there is need for a safer, non-invasive
technology to achieve fat reduction and improve the body silhouette.
UltraShape is non-invasive focused ultrasound technology that allows dermatologists to safely achieve fat reduction without the need for invasive surgery. Unlike liposuction, UltraShape utilises the natural physiological and metabolic pathways to clear fat. “
The UltraShape® Procedure
Safe, effective and convenient.
No surgery. No anesthetics. No recovery time.
The UltraShape® “walk-in walk-out” procedure takes place in the physician’s office after a consultation session between physician and patient. The physician first examines and marks the treatment area. Then, while the patient lies back on a comfortable bed, the operator uses the hand-held transducer to convert electrical energy into ultrasound energy and gently deliver focused therapeutic ultrasound energy over the marked region. In this way, the fat cells are selectively and safely disrupted. The entire procedure is guided by UltraShape’s advanced tracking technology which ensures smooth, uniform contouring.
What does the UltraShape treatment feel like?
Most patients report a painless and comfortable experience with side effects being extremely rare. Patients are immediately able to resume their daily routine.
What happens to the fat?
During the UltraShape procedure, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the UltraShape procedure and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed via the body’s natural mechanisms. Learn more…
