What is UltraShape?

First, let’s answer the question that’s likely on your mind: what is UltraShape, exactly?

UltraShape uses ultrasound technology to reduce fat cells. It’s a body contouring procedure that gained approval from the FDA in 2014. Today, Ultrashape is used to reduce abdominal circumference through fat cell destruction. 

This nonsurgical provides will allow you to reduce fat without surgery. It’s not a weight loss solution, though. Rather, it’s designed to help you lose stubborn fat.

Ideal candidates should have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less. You should be able to pinch at least an inch of fat in your midsection, too.

Before scheduling an appointment for UltraShape, make sure to find a med spa like Better Off that employs an approved provider.

How Does It Work?

Since the procedure is non-invasive, you won’t need anesthesia.

The procedure works by targeting fat cells in the abdominal area. The ultrasound technology can target fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue.

The procedure destroys fat cell walls. Then, the fat is released in the form of triglycerides. Your liver can process the triglycerides before they’re removed from your body. 

You can get rid of stubborn fat without going under the knife as a result.

UltraShape has FDA approval to treat fat cells on the flanks and in the abdominal circumference. 

The Procedure

First, your UltraShape specialist will need to apply a cool gel to the target area. They’ll need to place a special belt around your abdomen as well.

Then, they’ll place the transducer over your target area. The transducer is designed to deliver pulsed, focused ultrasound energy. It can deliver energy at a depth of 1.5 centimeters below the surface of your skin.

The procedure can stress your fat cells membranes, causing them to rupture. Once the process is complete, your UltraShape specialist will wipe the gel away. The entire process should only take an hour.

You can then return to your daily life without needing recovery time!

UltraShape Power is the newer version of the original UltraShape technology. The FDA approved UltraShape Power in 2016.

Risks and Side Effects

As with any procedure, you should review the potential risks and side effects with your UltraShape specialist before starting treatment.

Most patients don’t experience discomfort. However, you might notice a tingling or warm sensation during the procedure. That’s normal. 

If you experience any discomfort during the course of your appointment, let your specialist know right away. 

The UltraShape technology uses precise, measured energy. The applicator should destroy fat cells without damaging your:

  • Skin
  • Blood vessels
  • Nerves
  • Muscles

Remember, it’s important to seek treatment from a med spa that employs an approved provider. You can visit Better Off Med Spa in San Diego to get started. Choosing an approved provider can help you avoid painful side effects.

After Treatment

You can resume your regular, day-to-day activities after your appointment at Better Off Med Spa.

The treatment will eliminate fat cells, helping you lose stubborn fat. Once they’re gone, the fat cells won’t regenerate. However, the surrounding fat cells might grow larger.
