UltraShape ® – Now offered in San Francisco at the Appearance Care Center.
UltraShape is a non-invasive fat destruction procedure that uses acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy to target subcutaneous fat and reduce abdominal circumference. The technology uses pulsed ultrasound, which provides more control over temperature elevation compared to traditional ultrasound.
UltraShape is clinically proven to reduce localized fat deposits and help reduce body circumference, in a specific and targeted manner, with no irregularities, bruising or swelling. The results are long-lasting and will be evident in just a few weeks, with no downtime.

What is UltraShape?
Ultrashape is the first FDA-cleared non-invasive, body-shaping procedure for selective fat destruction. The procedure destroys stubborn fat, with no discomfort or downtime.
How Does Ultrashape work?
Ultrasound energy is delivered directly to areas of stubborn fat, below the skin’s surface, eventually causing them to rupture, and leaving the surrounding skin, nerves and blood vessels intact.
Am I a good candidate for UltraShape?
UltraShape is best for those suffering from stubborn fat in specific areas, and is not recommended for those seeking major weight loss.
How Safe is UltraShape?
UltaShape is cleared by the FDA for non-invasive destruction of fat in the abdominal area. Over clinical trials and 300,000 treatments worldwide, the procedure has shown itself to be safe.
Are UltraShape treatments painful?
Side effects with UltraShape are rare. There is no soreness, numbness or visible signs of treatment following UltraShape.
How much downtime is there with UltraShape?
With UltraShape, you can get back to your daily activities immediately because there is no downtime.
How many treatments of UltraShape will I need?
For the best results, 3 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart will give your body the time it needs to clear the fat cells from your system.
Where does the fat go?
The destroyed fat cells are broken down by your body, processed by the liver, and then eliminated naturally, just like other fats.
How fast does UltraShape produce results?
Results have been reported as soon as 2 weeks after the initial treatment. The best results will be seen following the full cycle of treatment.
How long do UltraShape results last?
While the treated fat cells are destroyed and cannot re-grow, other nearby fat cells can increase in size. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and habits following UltraShape.
How is UltraShape different from other body shaping treatments?
UltraShape does not heat or freeze fat. It is more comfortable than procedures that do heat or freeze fat, and it shows no signs of treatment.
