What is UltraShape

ultrashape-power-machineUltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body shaping device for selective fat cell destruction in women and men. The UltraShape body contouring treatment uses proprietary pulsed focused ultrasound to immediately destroy fat cells – and deliver noticeable results in two weeks, without discomfort or downtime.* At the UltraShape Center in Livingston, NJ, our highly skilled certified technician uses UltraShape to target stubborn fat in the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and thighs that is unaffected by diet or exercise.* Unlike liposuction, UltraShape is nonsurgical –which means no incisions, anesthetics, or recovery time. Unlike other fat reduction procedures that use heat or freezing of fat, UltraShape is totally painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment, so you can return to normal activities immediately.*  In fact, many patients do the procedure on their lunch break. In as little as three 1 hour treatments you’re left with smooth, contoured results,  often seen as quickly as 2 weeks after the first treatment.*

Am I A Candidate For UltraShape?

belly fatUltraShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat or genetically acquired problem areas. You should have a BMI under 30 and be able to pinch an inch of soft subcutaneous fat. There are two major types of fat in your body: visceral (fat that forms around your organs) and subcutaneous (fat that forms under the surface of your skin). While eating right and working out can help reduce visceral fat, subcutaneous fat can be difficult to lose. UltraShape targets and eliminates stubborn (subcutaneous) belly fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise.* 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?

how ultrashape gets rid of fat

Using ultrasound energy, UltraShape is able to target the stubborn  fat cells below your skin’s surface, destroying them instantly, so that you can see visible results within two weeks.* Because the ultrasound energy is pulsed and focused, UltraShape is able to target the fat cells mechanically, without heating them – while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed. At the UltraShape Center, our technician treats the designated area only once, ensuring a complete and uniform treatment. Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, the content of the cells is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The fat is then processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.

UltraShape is FDA cleared for non-invasive abdominal circumferential reduction. It has been shown to be safe in extensive clinical trials, and over 300,000 treatments have been performed worldwide.* At the UltraShape Center in Livingston, NJ, UltraShape is also safely and effectively used by our technician to treat stubborn, “pinchable” fat in the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and thighs.*

How Noticeable Will My Results Be?

You should see results in as few as two weeks.* Clinical results show: In a recent clinical study 120 patients underwent 2 or 3 focused ultrasound sessions. The average reduction in circumference after three sessions was 4.95 cm for the abdomen.**

Are Results Permanent?

Because fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments later on.* Of course, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise, to keep neighboring fat cells from increasing in size.

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 post treatment bruising, soreness, lumps, bumps or numbness. 3D mapping of treatments ensures that energy is delivered  uniformly, therefore minimizing contour irregularities – a common side effect of liposuction. Plus with UltraShape, you get measurable, visible results in as early as 2 weeks.*

Are There Any Visible Signs Of Treatment?

UltraShape is not subjected to a limited treatable area size. CoolSculpting cartridges come in pre-determined sizes which may not conform to the size of the area you want to reduce the fat from. UltraShape has no bruising since there is no thermal injury or suction. CoolSculpting creates a bruise (edema) due to the ‘cold’ nature of the treatment.  ‘Cold’ treatments can have the negative side effect of prolonged numbness in the treated area. You may spend weeks unable to feel any sensation in the focused area. Most importantly, at the UltraShape Center, we provide comfortable, faster, painless, treatments with no downtime. After a series UltraShape sessions over a 28 day period, you will be thrilled with your newly sculpted physique, as opposed to waiting up to 3 months for CoolSculpting to show effective results.*

Is UltraShape Right For Me?

The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to moderately overweight men and women achieve an improved body shape and contour.* UltraShape offers an effective, non -surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery.* To optimize the results of the treatments, we recommend that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle. We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your concerns and to determine whether UltraShape is right for you.

The Science Behind UltraShape

Talk about next-wave technology. UltraShape ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body, releasing the fat in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally.* The surrounding tissue, nerves, and muscle are left unharmed.*
