Ultrashape®: Don't just shrink fat cells... eliminate them permanently!
UltraShape® is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body shaping device that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound technology to mechanically (non-thermally) and selectively destroy fat cells. This makes the entire procedure virtually painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. Because the ultrasound technology behind UltraShape® is focused specifically on fat cells, you do not have to worry about bruising, swelling, or downtime. You can have your procedure done in about an hour or less and then go about your daily activities as usual! But the best part? You can finally eliminate those “trouble zones” on your body that have been stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise for a shapely, beautiful-contoured physique!
UltraShape® has been proven clinically safe and effective in studies, peer-reviewed papers, and published medical articles. Dr. Bielfield is careful and selective about the techniques offered at his private facility, Austin Dermatology & Vein located in Austin, Texas. UltraShape® was awarded NewBeauty Magazine’s “Beauty Body-Contouring Treatment” in 2014 and boasts a 96% “Worth It” rating on realself.com (as of June 2015).
Some areas most commonly treated with UltraShape® are:
- Love handles
- Hips (saddlebags)
- Inner/outer thighs
- Bra line
- Knee fat pads
What Ultrashape® does (and what it does NOT do)
Unlike weight loss, which can only shrink fat cells, UltraShape® eliminates them permanently. The Ultrashape’s focused, pulsed ultrasound energy is used to selectively remove the fat under your skin (subcutaneous fat). Once you, Dr. Bielfield and his team determine the exact areas of treatment, a smoothing gel is applied and the transducer will be glided over the area of treatment to deliver the ultrasound energy in the form of acoustic waves, which focus on the fat cells much like a magnifying glass can focus light. This causes a change in pressure, forming bubbles between the fat cells. These bubbles disrupt the fat cell wall, thereby releasing the fat for the body to reabsorb comfortably and naturally.
What does this all mean? Patients experience little to no pain during and after the procedure and smoother, more contoured results can be seen as quickly as two weeks after your first treatment! Generally, a minimum of 3 treatments are required for significant results and these sessions should be spaced about 2 weeks apart. The UltraShape® procedure is described by most patients as being a relaxing and pleasant experience. This procedure is non-surgical so there is no need for incisions, pain medication, or topical or local anesthetic.
UltraShape® is not meant for significant weight loss but rather for targeted areas that have been resistant to weight loss by conventional methods of diet and exercise. The UltraShape® technology won’t cause you pain or harm surrounding skin, connective tissue, nerves, or muscles. It’s no wonder why clinical studies have shown a 94% satisfaction rate by its patients!
