What is UltraShape?

Incorporating a healthy diet and exercise regimen is one of the best ways to achieve a toned, slim physique. However, sometimes, these healthy habits just aren’t enough to reach your body goals. At California Vein Specialists, we offer UltraShape, a noninvasive fat reduction treatment that is FDA-approved for eliminating stubborn pockets of resistant fatty tissue in the abdomen and flanks (love handles). This patented technology uses ultrasound energy to destroy unwanted fat cells without harming surrounding skin, nerves, blood vessels and muscles. In most cases, patients experience a tingling or warming sensation during the treatment.

During the UltraShape treatment, you will lie down comfortably on a treatment table. A soothing gel will then be applied to your abdomen and a hand-held transducer will then be glided over the targeted areas, emitting barely detectable pulses of ultrasound energy. The procedure takes an hour or less, and most patients find the treatment relaxing and pleasant. Because it is a noninvasive procedure, you can resume normal activities immediately afterward.

Once the ultrasound energy is applied, the fat cells in the abdomen will begin to rupt, and the contents of those cells will be transported through the lymphatic system and into your liver for processing. As the body eliminates these cells, you should start to see noticeable results within two weeks, and you can expect these results to continue to develop over time.

Unlike weight loss, which shrinks fat cells, UltraShape permanently eliminates unwanted fat cells and results are expected to be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after your treatments. Most patients achieve their desired body contour in a three-treatment series.
