What is UltraShape
UltraShape® is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure to use focused, pulsed ultrasound energy to selectively destroy fat cells.
Unlike liposuction, UltraShape is nonsurgical, which means no incisions, no anesthetics and no recovery time.
And unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape is virtually painless and leaves no unwanted signs of treatment. That means you can hit the doctor’s office then head straight to yoga class – crop top and all.
Instead of unwanted side effects, all you’re left with are smooth results, sometimes seen as quickly as just two weeks after the first treatment†. It’s no wonder UltraShape has a very high RealSelf rating.
WHAT ULTRASHAPE DOES. (AND WHAT IT WON'T DO.)
UltraShape destroys the fat that, despite your best efforts, is resistant to diet and exercise.
What UltraShape won't do is cause you pain or harm surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle. In fact, in a recent clinical study, 100% of patient report the treatment as being comfortable.1

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SLIMMING.
UltraShape’s gentle ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body and releases that fat in the form of triglycerides. Those triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. Meanwhile, the surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles are left completely unharmed.
THE ULTRASHAPE EXPERIENCE.
The UltraShape procedure is a pleasant, relaxing experience. Since it’s nonsurgical, the process is completely free of anesthetics or incisions.
After you and your doctor determine the exact treatment area, a specially designed belt will be wrapped around your abdomen and a soothing gel will be applied to your skin. A trained UltraShape technician will glide the UltraShape transducer over the treatment area, gently delivering virtually painless ultrasound pulses. Treatments take an hour or less, so sit back and take it easy as UltraShape takes care of your excess fat.
THE SKINNY ON STUBBORN BELLY FAT.
There are two major types of fat in your body: visceral (fat that forms around your organs) and subcutaneous (fat that forms under the surface of your skin).
While eating right and working out can help reduce visceral fat, subcutaneous fat can be difficult to lose. UltraShape targets and eliminates stubborn (subcutaneous) belly fat that's resistant to diet and exercise.
