While liposuction can be an excellent option for treating stubborn pockets of fat,* the surgical body contouring procedure is not for everyone. For some, nonsurgical liposuction alternatives offer a more realistic fit into their schedules, budgets or preferences. UltraShape® is one example of a nonsurgical procedure that targets subcutaneous fat cells, similarly to liposuction. But how does this alternative to liposuction work?
How UltraShape® Works
UltraShape® uses cutting edge technology to target fat cells using ultrasonic energy. The ultrasonic waves are tissue-selective, ensuring that only fat cells are targeted with minimal damage to nearby tissue.* Additionally, UltraShape® transmits pulsed ultrasound, which allows for the temperature of the waves to be precisely controlled, further minimizing risk of tissue damage while ensuring that fat cells are effectively destroyed.*
Where the Fat Goes
After UltraShape® targets and destroys fat cells in the selected area(s), a process of natural fat clearance initiates.* This means that the destroyed fat cells are eliminated through the body in the same way that fat is burned through strenuous exercise. The body’s physiological and metabolic pathways simply filter out the destroyed fat cells.
Is UltraShape® for You?
The best candidates for UltraShape® are men or women seeking improved body contours, but who don’t want surgical liposuction.* While UltraShape® can create beautiful results in the right patients, usually after a series of treatments, the final body shape can take up to several months to fully develop.* If you wish to avoid surgery, and your appearance goals require an enhancement rather than dramatic change, UltraShape® may be the right procedure for you.
