This harnesses the power of ultrasound technology to provide patients with a viable liposuction alternative.
Acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy are targeted directly at pockets of fat in the subcutaneous layer of fat found under the skin. The ultrasonic energy is emitted in short pulses, allowing proper control over temperature and the target area.
While other liposuction alternatives rely on heat to melt fat cells, Ultrashape ultrasound breaks down the targeted fat cells mechanically. Fat deposits are destroyed instantly and then naturally metabolized by the body. The dead fat cells are then excreted from the body through the same pathways that are employed during traditional weight loss programs.
This fat reduction treatment focuses on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and love handles. Each of these areas is well-known for its stubbornness on almost every diet. After losing large amounts of weight, these specific areas tend to harbor fat deposits for long periods of time.
Side effects are every patient’s biggest concern during every cosmetic procedure. While more invasive treatments, like liposuction, come with an endless list of uncomfortable side effects and a long recovery period, the same cannot be said for Ultrashape side effects.
This procedure is considered safe and entirely non-invasive.
Patients usually suffer no pain during or after the procedure.
Some patients have reported a tingling sensation during the procedure, but nothing too serious to handle.
Most patients report slight redness of the skin after treatment and some mild discomfort.
Less frequent, are reports of bruising and skin irritation. Any of these symptoms tend to disappear within a day or two, without necessitating any additional medication.
Each treatment session targets a relatively small zone of the body. This means that even if there is any discomfort, the recovery time will be quite short.
Most patients are able to get back to their daily routine without any downtime at all. Taking an afternoon off might not be a bad idea in terms of relaxation and allowing the body to adjust.
Although many patients sit through three sessions (spaced over a few months), many of them are happy with the results after their initial treatment. In these cases, they do not require any additional sessions. This makes Ultrashape cost more flexible than other fat reduction and cellulite removal procedures.
This treatment does not require any long-term maintenance products.
Patients are not required to invest in products designed to extend the shelf life of the procedure.
Similarly, there is no need to purchase painkillers of any kind.
Patients pay for their treatment sessions and nothing else.
