Sculpting Simplicity

How Does UltraShape Work?

UltraShape is an innovative, highly developed device that delivers acoustic waves of ultrasound energy to target subcutaneous fat and mild skin laxity. Differing from traditional fat reduction technology, UltraShape transmits pulsed ultrasound energy at a precise depth to the targeted fat layer, providing more control over temperature elevation and allowing for the immediate destruction of fat.

The technology is selective, meaning only the fat cells are disrupted while surrounding structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact. UltraShape is clinically proven to reduce localized fat deposits and body circumference in a precise and controlled measure with no irregularities, bruising or swelling. Under the guidance of Dr. Maas, the Appearance Care CenterTM in San Francisco offers UltraShape treatment to help patients eliminate unsightly bulges and folds by destroying fat cells around the abdomen, arms, thighs and flanks. The result is a more toned and defined physique that accentuates your natural curves and enhances your overall appearance.

How is the UltraShape Procedure Performed?

The UltraShape procedure generally takes from one to two hours, depending on the extent of treatment required. The area will be examined and marked, and a gel will be applied in preparation. The handheld UltraShape device will be gently guided over the area to deliver ultrasound energy at a precise depth within the targeted fat layer. This technique disrupts the fat cell membranes and causes them to rupture without harming the surrounding tissue. UltraShape is a relatively comfortable treatment that does not require anesthesia.

Patients typically experience a tingling or warming sensation during the procedure but little to no discomfort. However, Dr. Maas offers various pain or anxiety-relieving options for those who would rather avoid feeling the device’s effects altogether. Should you require this, please let us know during your consultation, so we can ensure your treatment process goes smoothly. The entire process is guided by an advanced tracking technology system to ensure smooth and consistent contouring results.

What is Recovery Like After UltraShape?

Since the procedure is comfortable and relatively painless, UltraShape does not require downtime and rarely results in side effects. Most patients can resume regular activity immediately after treatment. Since the device is non-invasive and only treats the targeted fat without disturbing the surrounding tissue, bruising and swelling are generally avoided. For this reason, most patients are free to go about their daily routine directly following treatment.

UltraShape Results

The results of your UltraShape procedure may appear in as little as two to three weeks. As the fat is destroyed and eliminated through the body’s natural processes, the effects will continue to improve over time. Patients usually require three treatments, spaced two weeks apart, for optimal results. Multiple sessions will allow for a more significant fat reduction and highly satisfying contouring results. Our expert team of aesthetic nurse specialists can work with you to determine the frequency and amount of sessions required to achieve your desired look. The results of this body-shaping procedure are generally long-lasting. Once UltraShape eliminates the fat cells, they cannot regenerate.

However, other fat cells in the surrounding areas can expand if weight is gained after treatment, so maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise is vital for preserving your improved figure. After your treatment, we can recommend ways to help maintain the effects of your UltraShape procedure, allowing you to enjoy a slimmer, more toned physique for years to come.

Is UltraShape Right for You?

UltraShape is an excellent solution for those struggling to shift localized fat deposits around the abdomen, flanks or thighs. When diet and exercise have proved ineffective, UltraShape can help to mold and shape these problem areas in line with your natural curves and unique figure to create a more proportional and aesthetically pleasing frame. 

Dr. Maas has helped men and women of various ages feel more comfortable and confident about their appearance with UltraShape. From prominent bulges to unsightly love handles, unwanted fat can prevent clothing from fitting comfortably and can diminish your appearance and self-confidence.

UltraShape is a highly advanced non-invasive method for removing this excess fat without disrupting your daily routine. During your initial consultation, Dr. Maas or a nurse from his aesthetic specialist team will examine your condition and reasons for treatment to ensure UltraShape is the right choice for you.

If you are in good health and are seeking to add the finishing touches to your weight loss efforts, UltraShape may be a suitable treatment option for you.
