HOW LONG WILL THE PROCEDURE LAST?
An UltraShape® procedure typically lasts 45 – 60 minutes. Recommended treatment includes three procedures spaced every two weeks to get the desired results.
WHO IS ULTRASHAPE® FOR?
UltraShape® is for men and women seeking to rid themselves of stubborn localized fat deposits. Candidates for the treatment want improved contours and shapes. It is not a method for losing weight.
WHAT PARTS OF THE BODY ARE TREATED WITH ULTRASHAPE®?
So far, UltraShape® is used to treat the abdomen, flanks and thighs.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
No. UltraShape® is painless. Many patients do report a mild-to-moderate tingling or warmth in the treatment area.
WHAT ARE THE TYPICAL RESULTS?
In clinical studies, researchers have found that the typical UltraShape® patient had lost 1.3 inches. Patients can lose up to two dress sizes if they combine the procedure with diet and exercise. As with liposuction, the results can be long-lasting if the patient follows a healthy diet and exercise regimen that prevents them from gaining weight.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE RESULTS TO BECOME VISIBLE?
After the UltraShape® procedure, it takes the body two to four weeks to clear away the destroyed fat cells and send them to the liver. The results of the procedure therefore don’t start to show until two to four weeks after the first treatment. The maximum results don’t become apparent until four weeks after the final treatment.
ARE THERE RISKS?
As UltraShape® is a medical procedure, there are some risks, but they are minimal.
HOW SOON CAN I RETURN TO WORK?
Since UltraShape® is so minimally invasive and does not involve any surgery; the patient can resume their normal activities immediately.
