Ultrashape Power Fat Removal Beaumont, TX
Most powerful ultrasound system for fat removal. This non-surgical virtually painless treatment destroys fat without any downtime. For body sculpting and fat layer reduction, the Ultrashape Power can reduce fat on large or small areas.
- Unwanted fat areas
UltraShape is the first and only non-invasive body contouring treatment to use proprietary pulsed focused ultrasound to immediately and comfortably destroy fat cells—and deliver noticeable results in two weeks. UltraShape emits acoustic waves of focused ultrasound energy, which converge to target subcutaneous fat at a controlled depth. Unlike traditional ultrasound technology, UltraShape’s ultrasound energy is pulsed, allowing control over temperature elevation so that fat is destroyed instantly, selectively and mechanically rather than thermally.
The UltraShape Transducer
The ceramic half-dome at the heart of the UltraShape handpiece is coated with silver and filled with a medium that matches the impedance of the human body.
When electrical voltage is applied to the silver coating, an electrical field is created within the ceramic. This causes an alteration in the ceramic thickness, which in turn creates pressure waves within the medium. These pressure waves are interpreted as sound waves, creating the ultrasound energy.
When the interstitial fluid is subjected to these rapid alterations in pressure, bubbles are formed and then implode. This implosion can cause a mechanical breakdown of the fat cells—without harming the surrounding structures.
Because the ceramic in the handpiece has a rounded shape, it delivers low energy at the surface that intensifies as it converges on a focal point. This focused energy is better able to target defined tissue—in this case, fat cells—at a controlled depth, while leaving adjacent structures (blood vessels, nerves, muscles) unharmed.
UltraShape energy is delivered in bursts, so the heat that is generated can dissipate before the next pulse begins. This minimizes temperature increases on and around the targeted tissues.
Energy is then transformed into mechanical stresses that stay focused on one target—and only for the duration of the pulse. This enables UltraShape to selectively destroy fat cells, which are more susceptible to disruption, while more resistant structures remain intact.
The most common concern regarding non-invasive fat reduction is what happens to the destroyed fat cells.
When the fat cell membrane is disrupted, the content (composed mainly of triglycerides) is dispersed into the interstitial fluid among the cells and transported to the liver.
The liver processes this fat the same way it processes fat that comes from digested food, by clearing it through the body’s lymphatic, venous and immune systems.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does UltraShape work?A: Using ultrasound energy, UltraShape is able to target fat cells, destroying them instantly, so patients can see visible results within two weeks. Because the ultrasound energy is pulsed and focused, UltraShape is able to target the fat cells mechanically, without heating them and without damaging surrounding tissue. The designated area is treated only once, ensuring a complete and uniform treatment. Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, the content of the cells is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The fat is then processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.
Q: How noticeable will my results be?
A: You should see results in as few as two weeks. Clinical results show:
- Average reduction of 3.3 cm (1.3 inches)
- Up to 6.3 cm (nearly 2.5 inches) after 3 treatments
Q: Is UltraShape safe?
A: The UltraShape system has been shown to be safe and effective for patients.
- Cleared for abdominal circumference reduction
- Clinically demonstrated in multi-center controlled trials
- 0 peer-reviewed published articles and book chapters
- 300,000 treatments have been performed worldwide
Q: Are UltraShape treatments painful?A: Most patients report a comfortable experience, and side effects are extremely rare. There are no post treatment lumps, bumps, soreness or numbness. UltraShape is also a no-downtime treatment, so you can resume your normal activities right away.
Q: How many treatments will I need?A: We recommend three treatments spaced two weeks apart. Spacing treatments give your body time to clear the fat cells from your system.
Q: How long do the results last?A: Because fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments later on. Of course, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the fat cells from coming back.
Q: What makes UltraShape different from other treatments?A: UltraShape treatments result in the immediate destruction of fat cells. Measurable results are seen as early as two weeks. UltraShape treatments are also very comfortable and not associated with post-treatment soreness, lumps or bumps. 3D mapping of treatments ensures that energy is delivered uniformly, therefore minimizing contour irregularities—a common side effect of liposuction.
Q: Is UltraShape right for me?A: The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to moderately overweight men and women achieve an improved body shape and contour. UltraShape offers an effective non-surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery. To optimize the results of the treatments, it is recommended that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle.
