UltraShape is one of the newest non-invasive alternatives to liposuction, and one of the most popular surgery-free body contouring procedure available today. UltraShape has been used in Canada, Israel, throughout Europe and other countries for over 15 years. But it was only recently FDA approved after rigorous clinical trials in the U.S. showed efficacy and permanent fat reduction, which is why it was finally selected for non-invasive body contouring by Dr. Siamak Agha.
UltraShape uses ultrasound – the same ultrasound used to see babies inside of a mother’s womb. Specialized machines take the ultrasonic energy from ultrasound devices and focus that energy directly into fat tissue.This technology is called high intensity focused ultrasound. This focused energy has been shown to rupture fat cells by shaking the cell membranes, while leaving other, non-fat cells unharmed (such as skin cells, tissues, organs, and more). Guided by a sophisticated 3-D computer mapping program, Dr. Agha and his staff can use ultrashape not only to destroy subcutaneous fat but also to create aesthetically pleasing contours in the body- similar contours to what you would see if you underwent liposuction, except without any surgery or recovery time. The ruptured fat cells then get transported to your liver and metabolized. Once a fat cell is removed from your body, it is removed permanently. Studies have shown that Ultrashape can reduce result body circumference from 1.5 to 4 inches after 3 treatment sessions.In the abdomen area, this can translate to a decrease of as much as 2 sizes in your waist depending on your body shape and results.
The process itself is considered painless, with very few patients reporting any discomfort and none reporting any long term issues. The process takes only about 1 hour at most depending on which target area you’re addressing, and takes place in three short visits to The Aesthetic Center of Orange County. This stands in stark contrast to other types of non-invasive body contouring technologies, which use heat, laser, or radiofrequency to kill fat cells in a way that some describe as uncomfortable.
UltraShape uses technology that has been used for decades on pregnant women without any harm to the fetus, so scientists are not worried about any short or long term health complications as a result of UltraShape. Also, ultrasound assisted liposuction has been used for decades to rupture fat cells during liposuction.
