Q: How does UltraShape work?
A: UltraShape is a noninvasive, non-surgical, FDA approved procedure that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound for fat cell destruction. UltraShape delivers ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below your skin surface. Rapidly changing pressure waves cause the targeted fat cells to rupture. The treated fat tissue is removed through the body’s natural healing and elimination process, leaving you with a thinner, more contoured you. Combined with VelaShape, broken down fat cells are mechanically pushed into the lymphatic system to be eliminated from the body.
Q: What kind of results can be expected?
A: In a clinical study, the average waistline reduction was about 1.2-2.5 inches (3.3cm-6.3cm), after the standard 3 treatments for the average person with a BMI of 30 or below. Results are not guaranteed. Most people see results within 2 weeks when combined with Velashape! The VelaShape treatment will help the body process the broken down fat cells giving you those results in such a short timeframe.
Q: How is UltraShape different than other body contouring machines?
A: With many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as radiofrequency and lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, thereby limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and delivering only temporary results. Ultrasound energy, on the other hand, can be used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues. The UltraShape system uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy to non-invasively destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results.
Q: What type of fat does UltraShape treat?
A: Only subcutaneous fat can be treated with body contouring devices. That’s the fat that sits on top of the muscle. Fat that is under the muscle is called visceral fat and is too deep to be affected by fat destruction devices. Everyone is built differently. Other non-invasive body contouring devices can be limited in their ability to treat certain areas of fat. The UltraShape, like the Liposonix system, is highly versatile which allows control over precisely how and where energy is delivered, for a truly customized treatment.
Q: Where can UltraShape be performed?
A: Almost anywhere! Unlike other body contouring machines UltraShape can be preformed from the fat pouch under your arms down to the “Cankles” you wish you never had. We can get rid of that bulge in front by your bra line or the back fat that you hate. Of course we can also trim the belly fat and love handles, not to mention the saddlebags! How about the fat that fans you when you wave your arms. The list goes on and on. Bottom line, if you have extra inches that bother you let us help improve your feeling of confidence to build a new you.
Q: Who is allowed to perform Ultrashape?
A: UltraShape is not a laser but pulsed ultrasound. You safety is of utmost importance at Alazzo Med Spa; a trained and licensed Nurse Practitioner or Registered Nurse will perform your procedure.
Q: What does it feel like?
A: The most common side effects reported during a treatment are vibration, tingling or warm. This procedure is stated to be virtually pain free!
Q: Is UltraShape safe?
A: UltraShape is a FDA approved procedure and very safe. Penetrating ½ inch only fat cells are targeted. Unlike laser any skin type can be treated safely.
Q: How long does a treatment take and How many treatments are needed?
A: The length of time to perform UltraShape depends on the area to be treated. An abdomen can be treated in about an hour and a half. At Alazzo we give all of our patients the individual time they need to complete each and every treatment. Treatments are performed every 2 weeks for 3 treatments. In a month you can be in that lean body you have always dreamed about.
Q: What do I need to do after the treatment? Is there any downtime?
A: There isn’t any downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately. There isn’t any bruising, swelling or discomfort after this treatment.
