As a non-invasive fat reduction treatment, UltraShape® is painless and requires zero downtime or recovery. For patients seeking a non-surgical solution to reduce fat deposits on their bodies, our experienced medical practitioners provide UltraShape® at our offices in Upstate South Carolina. This treatment provides non-surgical body contouring through the use of ultrasound technology. Our practice is the only cosmetic treatment center in Upstate South Carolina to offer UltraShape®, and we are proud to provide our clients with the advantages of this innovative procedure.

UltraShape® is the only non-surgical FDA-approved fat reduction treatment method that uses ultrasound technology to effectively eliminate fat and provide patients with more contoured figures.

What is UltraShape®?

Unlike traditional weight loss methods, which only reduce the size of fat cells, UltraShape® may permanently eliminate fat cells for long-lasting results. UltraShape® is the only non-surgical FDA-approved fat reduction treatment method that uses ultrasound technology to effectively eliminate fat and provide patients with more contoured figures. During treatment, ultrasound pulses are transmitted to fat cells within the specific treatment area. Those fat cells are transformed into harmless triglycerides, which are processed by the liver and are then eliminated from the body.

UltraShape® Candidates

Male and female patients of any age who are near their goal weight with stubborn fat deposits may be candidates for UltraShape® treatment. Target areas for treatment can include:

  • Midsection
  • Hips and flanks (love handles)
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper back
  • Knees
  • Enlarged breasts in men

Ideal candidates should be in good health overall and be near their target weight as this procedure is more appropriate for contouring than weight loss. For long-lasting results, patients should be willing to commit to healthy lifestyle changes.

UltraShape® Treatment

When you come in for your UltraShape® treatment, a qualified medical practitioner will use ultrasound imaging to map your specified treatment areas. A specialized ultrasound gel will then be applied to the treatment area, and the UltraShape® handheld device will be applied. This small device transmits pulses of energy to the designated fat cells, transforming them into triglycerides. The use of ultrasound technology in this treatment makes it pain-free. Most sessions last about 30 minutes on average, and patients typically require two to three treatment sessions, spaced three to four weeks apart.

You can return to work or your regular daily activities immediately following each treatment session, as there is no downtime associated with UltraShape®. Most patients begin to see results within two weeks of their first treatment. Final results are usually visible within two to three weeks following your final treatment.

Advantages of UltraShape®

UltraShape® is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment, so there are no risks, discomfort, pain, or lengthy recovery periods involved. Unlike other non-surgical methods, UltraShape® does not use heat or cold to destroy fat cells, making it an even more comfortable procedure. UltraShape® permanently eliminates these fat cells, so you can enjoy long-lasting results with a healthy diet and regular exercise. After your final treatment, you can enjoy a smoother, slimmer figure.
