Southern California is known for its warm weather and excellent beaches. But when you struggle with stubborn fat, it’s not uncommon to feel as though you can’t truly enjoy it. Many people suffer from stubborn fat that refuses to go away no matter how much you exercise or how well you stick to your diet.
The solution for many years has been liposuction – plastic surgery that removes and reshapes subcutaneous fat cells in the body. Liposuction remains one of the most effective plastic surgery procedures available today for altering body shape. But it is not without its problems, because liposuction is invasive surgery, which means:
The benefits can be substantial, but for many, the risks are simply too high. It is for these reasons that scientists have long been searching for strategies to contour the body without surgery, and recently several technologies have appeared on the market. However only 3 of these technologies have gained FDA-approval with ultrashape and CoolSculpting being two of the most popular.
UltraShape is an FDA approved, non-invasive (no cuts or surgery) body contouring technology that uses pulsating ultrasound to selectively target and eliminate fat cells inside of the body. The waves from the UltraShape device cause fat cells to experience significant pressure until they rupture. The ruptured cells are then removed from the body permanently, leading to a more contoured look in the targeted area.
UltraShape is one of the only non-invasive pain-free alternatives to liposuction available today, and the only alternative that doesn’t require significant heat or cooling – both of which are known to create discomfort. UltraShape is pain free, with a process that involves no major changes to the way your body feels.
UltraShape can be used almost anywhere in the body, including:
Because UltraShape is discomfort free and causes no scars, many people choose to undergo UltraShape in order to address an area of the body that they want to target, but not at the risk of scars or discomfort. That is why, although the abdomen and love handles dominate UltraShape use, other areas of the body, like the arms, are very popular, since they are not considered areas that many people want to target with surgery.
