Allura Medical Aesthetics & Surgery is excited to introduce UltraShape®, the revolutionary new way to slim down in three easy treatments.
No surgery, no pills, and no anesthesia — just a technologically advanced system that fights the bulge with patented ultrasound therapy.
Because it’s a non surgical fat removal method, there’s no downtime, with very few side effects, you can just drop by during your lunch hour for a session then get back to work or your normal activities. It’s that easy.
The clinically-proven UltraShape procedure is the most widely used non-invasive solution for fat destruction and body sculpting. It uses focused ultrasound to target and reduce unwanted localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference and improve body shape. The new V3 system also uses integrated vacuum assisted Radio-Frequency to enhance fat cell destruction, clearance and skin tightening.
The UltraShape procedure is intended to help average to modestly overweight men and women reduce localized fat deposits around the abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips and thighs.
It offers a totally non-invasive, painless no downtime alternative to patients seeking reduced circumference (a slimmer body) and an improved body contour. UltraShape involves no incisions, needles, injections, recovery time or maintenance treatments whatsoever.
UltraShape is an ideal non-surgical procedure that enables men and women to improve their figure, go down in clothing size, and improve the shape in problem fatty areas that regular diet and exercise usually don’t get rid of.
The series of treatments is performed in 2 weeks intervals, giving time for the body’s natural metabolic processes to safely clear away the destroyed fat cells. During these intervals, patients can treat other areas of the body and undergo other complementary procedures.
Find out more about UltraShape® by contacting us to book your complimentary consultation with a patient consultant. During your consultation, you’ll discuss the technology behind UltraShape® and whether the procedure is appropriate to achieve your goals and fulfill your expectations.
You’ll also find out whether other cosmetic treatments, surgical or nonsurgical, are more suitable for you.
What results can I expect?
Clinical results show that in three treatments, patients see an average of 4 cm reduction in circumference. Clinical trials have shown an average of 2 cm reduction in circumference even after a single treatment. A minimum of three treatments is recommended to achieve maximum results. As with any non-invasive procedure the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results. The Doctor will be happy to discuss this in detail with you during a consultation.
What does the procedure feel like?
Patients usually report feeling light tingling or warmth in the treated area.
What makes the UltraShape® procedure unique?
Body contouring with the UltraShape delivers measurable, long-lasting circumference reduction in target body areas, and provides the following benefits:
Non-invasive — The procedure is totally non-invasive and reduces the fat thickness and circumference of the treated area with no incisions, cannulas, injections or needles.
Safe — The focused ultrasound causes a mechanical (non-thermal) effect that selectively targets only fat tissue without affecting the surrounding blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue.
Effective — After three sessions, patients experience an average of 4 cm reduction in body circumference. These results have been proven in clinical studies and are demonstrated in the tens of thousands of treatments performed worldwide. The results you experience may vary.
Comfortable — The vast majority of people who have undergone the UltraShape body contouring procedure report no discomfort. There is no anesthesia or sedation required. You simply lie on the bed and the technician guides a handheld device that delivers the ultrasound energy over your body.
How does the UltraShape technology work?
The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.
What happens to the fat after the UltraShape procedure?
During the UltraShape procedure, the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is broken down and transported to the liver. The fat is processed via the body’s natural mechanisms and turns into building blocks for energy.
What body areas are treated?
A multi-center controlled clinical trial has demonstrated that the procedure is safe and effective for treating the abdomen, outer thighs (“saddle bags”), and flanks (“love handles”).
