When a nutritious diet and frequent exercise and activity are not enough to keep stubborn body fat away or give you the sculpted look you want, many minimally and non-invasive treatments can help. Many of these are very successful, have very minimal to no risks, and have no recovery or restrictions after each treatment.
With the variety of treatment options available, it might be challenging to choose which one would work best for you. Though many of them are similar in how they work, some stand out more than others. UltraShape is an FDA-cleared treatment method that uses your body’s natural metabolic processes to painlessly remove stubborn and unwanted body fat.
Using a small handheld device, your doctor will aim for focused, controlled, and pulsed ultrasound energy deep below the skin. This ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells while not affecting other surrounding tissue or structures.
Once the fat cells are destroyed, the free contents of the fat, primarily triglycerides, are filtered out of your body through the liver in the same process used for the normal processing of fat during weight loss. Numerous studies conducted on this process have concluded that triglycerides do not accumulate in the blood, and this is a very safe process with virtually no risks.
Not only is this treatment painless, but it also requires just 3 treatment sessions that are spaced about 2 weeks apart and requires no recovery or restrictions after each of the treatments. Unlike other minimally invasive treatments, there is no bruising or swelling around the treatment sites after each session.
The results also appear relatively quickly. It takes about 2 to 4 weeks for your body to fully process the debris of the fat cells. You will see continuous improvement over this time, with the final results coming about 28 days after the final treatment session.
