UltraShape® (Fat Reduction)
UltraShape® is a painless, body contouring treatment available in Ottawa. Concept Medical is pleased to be one of the only clinics offering this non-surgical procedure to help shape your thighs, flanks, and stomach. UltraShape® is painless and has no injections, no incisions, and no downtime.
WHAT IS ULTRASHAPE®?
UltraShape harnesses the power of pulsed ultrasound to selectively destroy unwanted fat deposits, reduce inches, and improve your contour. UltraShape is a safe, painless fat reduction treatment, which can be used on the stomach, flanks, and thighs. UltraShape is not designed for weight loss, skin laxity, or cellulite or for patients who are obese. Unlike other body contouring treatments, UltraShape does not use heat or cold to destroy fat, which makes UltraShape very comfortable, yet effective.
HOW DOES ULTRASHAPE® WORK?
UltraShape uses powerful ultrasound energy to selectively break down fat cells. When ultrasound energy from UltraShape is absorbed by fat cells, the outer wall of the fat cell ruptures. Surrounding structures such as blood vessels, muscle, and nerves are unharmed. Once the fat is broken down it safely cleared from the area and processed by the body’s natural metabolism. The UltraShape system at Concept Medical in Ottawa is guided by an advanced computerized guidance system designed to deliver uniform and smooth body contouring results.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY ULTRASHAPE® TREATMENTS?
Clinical studies have shown measurable circumference reduction in most patients after a single UltraShape treatment. However, most patients at Concept Medical in Ottawa experience optimal results after 3 treatments, each spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Results from UltraShape are considered permanent, as the treated fat cells are destroyed. Based on current clinical experience maximum results are seen about 30-90 days after the third treatment. Results are best maintained through a healthy diet and physical activity.
IS ULTRASHAPE® PAINFUL?
During treatment, many patients notice a mild vibration. However, treatment is not painful and very comfortable. Side effects from UltraShape are extremely rare, but are possible. There is no pain, numbness, or downtime following treatment.
