How Safe is Body Contouring?

UltraShape is a safe, non-surgical body-shaping procedure that can be done on your lunch hour.

UltraShape: The Technology Explained

UltraShape is a non-surgical procedure using ultrasound technology to contour your body and reduce fat cells. As the fat cell walls are targeted, fat is released in the form of triglycerides that your liver processes out of your body. 

Due to the measured energy of this technology, fat cells are targeted without damage to the surrounding tissue, nerves, blood vessels, and muscles. It is a noninvasive treatment, so you don’t need anesthesia.

Is UltraShape FDA-Approved?

Yes. The UltraShape procedure was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the reduction of abdominal circumference via fat cell destruction in 2014. UltraShape Power is the newest version of this technology and was FDA-approved in 2016. This technology is only considered safe when performed by an approved provider like Laser Skin Care Center.

What Happens During Treatment?

The procedure begins with your doctor applying a gel to the target area, followed by a special belt around your abdomen. The transducer is placed, which delivers pulsed ultrasound energy below the surface of your skin. You may feel a warming or tingling sensation that will subside when treatment is complete.

Most patients experience little to no discomfort but may have minor bruising immediately following the procedure. You are able to return to your daily activities following this one-hour procedure.

What Results Can I Expect?

Smooth, contoured results may be visible as soon as two weeks. Laser Skin Care Center recommends a series of treatments for optimal results and will customize a treatment plan for your goals. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is important since other fat cells in the surrounding area can grow following treatment.

There are two main types of fat in our body: 

  • Visceral fat – which forms around our organs.
  • Subcutaneous fat – which forms under the surface of the skin.

UltraShape targets subcutaneous fat cells in the abdominal circumference. Ideal candidates have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less and can pinch at least an inch of fat in their midsection.
