Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is excited to be one of the first practices in San Diego to acquire the just recently FDA-approved UltraShape fat reducing device. UltraShape is the latest in noninvasive fat reduction, providing noticeable reduction in waist circumference through pulsed ultrasound technology. With the addition of UltraShape to the roster of fat-reduction procedures offered, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is able to offer another option for discerning patients in order to achieve optimal results.
At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our doctors want to provide the highest quality treatments to their patients, and so they perform most body sculpting treatments themselves, including UltraShape. This means that patients are receiving treatment from actual doctors who have trained in the procedure and have the most experience and knowledge to obtain the best results possible.
What Is UltraShape?
UltraShape is an innovative new device which has just been FDA-approved for use in the reduction of fat bulges around the abdomen. UltraShape has been clinically proven, with a patient satisfaction rate of 86 to 94%. It is a painless, comfortable procedure, and through the use of cutting-edge technology ensures even fat reduction with no irregularities. There is no downtime involved, making it a perfect choice for patients with busy schedules.
UltraShape is designed to reduce the circumference of the waist, thighs, or love handles, eliminating those stubborn fat accumulations that can be so hard to get rid of with only diet and exercise. It is not designed as a primary weight-loss tool, but average to overweight men and women can use it to reduce unwanted fat deposits and create a more pleasing body contour without needing to undergo liposuction. UltraShape is not for use in helping eliminate obesity.
How Does UltraShape Work?
UltraShape uses an innovative pulsed, non-thermal ultrasound technology to selectively target and destroy fat cells. This pulsed ultrasound, unlike regular ultrasound technology, allows for controlled temperature regulation and instant destruction of subcutaneous fat cells. This focused ultrasound energy creates an even path of destruction, meaning that the results are smooth and regular, with no lumps or irregularities. In addition, integrated RF, or radiofrequency, energy assists in enhancing the fat cell reduction and tightens the skin at the same time.
The focused ultrasound technology of UltraShape is proven safe and effective, with no adverse side effects. Even bruising and swelling can be avoided with an UltraShape procedure, and patients are able to walk out the door and back into their everyday activities after a treatment with no recovery time necessary. Results are long-lasting, and can be seen in as little as one to two weeks. For optimal results, multiple treatments are recommended.
What Is an UltraShape Procedure Like?
UltraShape uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to selectively and safely destroy unwanted fat cells. It includes a tracking and guidance system, which ensures through 3D mapping of the body that there are no irregularities and the area has been evenly treated.
UltraShape is painless and relatively quick. Most patients report mild to moderate tingling or heat sensations during treatment, which are not painful or uncomfortable. An expert dermatologist at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology will perform the procedure with utmost care, ensuring that you are comfortable and that optimal results will be achieved. Generally, patients see a reduction of around 4cm after a series of 3 treatments. The ideal number of treatments will be determined by your dermatologist during the initial consultation, and can be modified depending on how your body responds to the procedure. Results are long-lasting, provided the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle afterward!
