FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
QUESTION: What is UltraShape?
ANSWER: UltraShape is the first and only Health Canada-cleared, non-invasive, body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat destruction. The UltraShape procedure targets and instantly destroys stubborn fat, without discomfort or downtime.
QUESTION: How does UltraShape work?
ANSWER: UltraShape delivers ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below your skin's surface. Rapidly changing pressure waves create vapor cavities in the fat cells. This stresses the fat cell membranes, causing them to rupture—all while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed.
QUESTION: Is UltraShape right for me?
ANSWER: UltraShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat or genetically acquired problem areas. For best results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended. UltraShape is not recommended for major weight loss
QUESTION: How many treatments will I need?
ANSWER: Three treatments spaced 2 weeks apart are recommended. This timing gives your body time to clear the fat cells from your system, maximizing your results.
QUESTION: Will there be visible signs of treatment?
ANSWER: No, the UltraShape procedure does not leave visible signs of treatment.
QUESTION: Can I return to normal activities after treatment?
ANSWER: There is no downtime—not even social downtime—after an UltraShape treatment. You can resume your normal daily activities right away, even go to the gym!
QUESTION: How soon can I expect to see results?
ANSWER: Many people see results as early as 2 weeks after their first treatment, but patients can expect to see the best results after a series of 3 treatments, 2 weeks apart. End result is seen 12 weeks after the last treatment.
QUESTION: Are results permanent?
ANSWER: Yes! The fat cells being treated are permanently destroyed. However, while the treated cells cannot regrow, other neighboring fat cells can increase in size, so—for best results—it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
QUESTION: Where does the fat go?
ANSWER: The body breaks down the destroyed fat cells, just like it breaks down other fats. After being processed by the liver, the waste is eliminated naturally.
QUESTION: What makes UltraShape Power different?
ANSWER: Unlike other fat-reduction procedures, UltraShape Power treatments are very comfortable and show no visible signs of treatment. Plus, with UltraShape Power, you get measurable, visible results as early as 2 weeks and the highest reduction of fat thickness layer on the market at 32% reduction.
