A combination of diet and exercise is the best way to lose weight and keep extra fat off. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to target stubborn fat. Therefore, despite following a diet and exercise program, some people still struggle with losing fat in certain areas. For decades, men and women have turned to cosmetic surgeries to achieve the slimmed, toned appearance they desire. Nowadays, less invasive procedures are available. UltraShape® utilizes ultrasound technology for body contouring.
The procedure destroys fat cells using ultrasound waves while leaving surrounding healthy tissue unharmed. For patients, the most exciting advantage of choosing UltraShape® over other options is being able to reduce fat through a non-invasive procedure that requires minimal recovery time.
How UltraShape® Works
Since UltraShape® is a non-invasive procedure, the patient does not need anesthesia prior to receiving the treatment. During the treatment, a special device delivers ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin. When targeted by ultrasound energy, fat cell membranes in the treated areas become stressed and rupture. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results.
The fat cells that are destroyed by UltraShape® are unable to regenerate; however, maintaining a healthy diet and an effective exercise pattern following the procedure is critical because fat cells in areas adjacent to the treatment area may grow larger.
