UltraShape Power Q & A

What is UltraShape?

UltraShape is a widely-used, noninvasive solution for fat destruction and body sculpting. Diana applies its pulsed light ultrasound power to specific areas to reduce unwanted fat deposits. Ultrashape also reduces your body circumference and improves your shape.

How does UltraShape work?

Diana applies the treatment using a handheld transducer, or wand. The pulsed, focused ultrasound energy penetrates below your skin to the fat layer, breaking down the fat cells but leaving surrounding tissue -- such as nerves and blood vessels -- intact.

The ultrasonic energy treats fat cells in the targeted area. Your body then transports the fat from the broken down cells to your liver, which then processes it to be used for energy. UltraShape also increases blood circulation and lymphatic system activity to expedite the clearance of the damaged fat cells.  

How long does it take to experience results?

Once you’ve undergone treatment, your body takes between two and four weeks to completely clear the fat cells. You can expect to notice changes in your circumference and fat thickness within 14-28 days. Optimal results appear about four weeks post-treatment.

Results are lasting, but are best maintained with a healthy diet and physical activity routine.

What areas of the body can be treated with UltraShape?

Areas stubborn to fat loss through traditional weight-loss methods respond best to UltraShape. UltraShape is not for comprehensive weight loss. Specific areas that respond best to treatment include the:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (sides of your waist and love handles)
  • Thighs

Research shows that after three UltraShape treatments, you may get as much as a 4-centimeter reduction in circumference at the specific treatment area. Three treatments spaced two weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. Results do vary from patient to patient.*

Do the treatments hurt?

Most people tolerate UltraShape treatments well. Expect to feel warmth and tingling during the treatment session. You don’t need anesthesia or sedation during a session. You simply lie on an exam table as Diana applies the wand to the specific areas targeted for shaping.

You experience no blood loss, incisions, or needles. Downtime following UltraShape is not required, so you can go right back to your daily activities.
