What is UltraShapeTM ?
Non-Invasive Body Shaping Treatment
- Permanent fat cell destruction by pulsed focused ultrasound
- Non-invasive with no pain
- Treatment area is customized to each individual

* Suitability must be assessed by our aesthetic doctor
The UltraShapeTM treatment is comfortable and effectively breaks down fat cells in the target area leaving blood vessels, nerves and skin unharmed. It is a non-invasive body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell destruction.
UltraShapeTM’s ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body, releasing the fat in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. The surrounding tissue, nerves, and muscle are left unharmed. It’s nonsurgical, so there are no incisions or anesthetics involved.
Unlike liposuction, UltraShapeTM is non-surgical which means no incisions and anesthetics are involved, resulting in little to no recovery time. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment. Patients are able to leave our aesthetic clinic with no unwanted signs of treatment and return to their normal daily activities immediately.
During the UltraShapeTM treatment, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily composed of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the UltraShapeTM treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.
The UltraShapeTM treatment focuses on the abdomen, thighs (“saddle bags”) and flanks (“love-handles”).
The UltraShapeTM treatment has been designed to help overweight men and women acquire an improved body shape and contour. To optimize the results of such treatments, it is recommended that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle. UltraShapeTM offers an effective non-surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery. The ideal patient is one who has already committed to leading a healthy lifestyle.
Certain restrictions for some people exist mainly due to an underlying condition they have that may interact with the way in which the system works. Amongst the restrictions to keep in mind are: those aged less than 18 years, pregnancy (or anticipated pregnancy), breastfeeding mothers, patients with an implanted cardiac defibrillator, pacemaker, or other electromagnetic implants, patients with severe hyperlipidemia or fatty liver, hepatitis, other liver diseases, connective tissue disease, and bleeding disorder.
The number of treatments needed varies according to individuals. Clinical results show an average reduction of four centimeters and as much as ten centimeters after 3 treatments. In independent studies and in commercial use, multiple treatments have shown accumulative circumference reduction and high patient satisfaction. Our aesthetic doctor recommends having 3 UltraShapeTM 3 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart.
The UltraShapeTM treatment destroys fat cells permanently, resulting in a long-lasting effect. Obviously, the effects will last much longer if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle. Due to the definite destruction of fat cells, no maintenance treatments are required.
It is recommended to do UltraShapeTM with a two-week interval in-between, to allow the fat to be cleared via the body’s natural mechanism.
Most patients report a painless and comfortable experience, with side effects being extremely rare. After determining the exact treatment area, a specially designed belt will be placed around your abdomen. A soothing gel will then be applied to your skin. Following that, our aesthetic doctor will glide the UltraShapeTM transducer over the treatment area to deliver gentle and virtually painless ultrasound pulses deep into the skin. Treatments usually last an hour or less. Patients are able to resume their daily routine immediately after leaving the clinic.
