FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
What is UltraShape?
UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive, body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat destruction. The UltraShape procedure targets and instantly destroys stubborn fat, without discomfort or downtime.
Is UltraShape right for me?
UltraShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat or genetically acquired problem areas. For best results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended. UltraShape is not recommended for major weight loss.†
How does UltraShape work?
UltraShape delivers ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below your skin's surface. Rapidly changing pressure waves create vapor cavities in the fat cells. This stresses the fat cell membranes, causing them to rupture—all while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed. See how it works.
Is UltraShape safe?
UltraShape is FDA cleared for selective, non-invasive fat destruction in the abdominal region. It has been shown to be safe in extensive clinical trials. Thousands of treatments using UltraShape technology have been performed worldwide.
Are UltraShape treatments painful?
Most people report a comfortable experience and side effects are extremely rare. There is no soreness or numbness after treatment.
Are there any visible signs of treatment?
The UltraShape procedure leaves no visible signs of treatment.
How soon can I expect to see results?
Some people reported seeing results as early as 2 weeks after their first treatment, but you should expect to see the best results after a series of 3 treatments, 2 weeks apart.†
Can I return to normal activities after treatment?
There is no downtime—not even social downtime—after an UltraShape treatment. You can resume your normal daily activities right away.
How many treatments will I need?
Three treatments spaced 2 weeks apart are recommended. This timing gives your body time to clear the fat cells from your system, maximizing your results.
Are results long-lasting?
The fat cells that are treated are destroyed. However, while the treated cells cannot regrow, other neighboring fat cells can increase in size, so—for best results—it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
Where does the fat go?
The body breaks down (or processes) the destroyed fat cells, just like it breaks down other fats. After being processed by the liver, the waste is eliminated naturally.
What makes UltraShape different from other treatments?
Unlike other fat-reduction procedures, UltraShape does not use heat or freeze fat. UltraShape treatments are very comfortable and show no visible signs of treatment. Plus, with UltraShape , you get measurable, visible results as early as 2 weeks.†
How much does UltraShape cost?
Costs can vary between doctors and different areas of the country. While 3 treatments are recommended, your doctor will determine the number of treatments you will need.
