UltraShape® is the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved, non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses ultrasound for selective fat cell destruction. There is no other cosmetic treatment that can parallel the “slim without the gym” science of UltraShape®. At our practice in Minneapolis, MN, Dr. Gregory T. Mesna is dedicated to treating patients with the most progressive and effective non-surgical procedures to enhance and rejuvenate the body. UltraShape® is at the forefront of these procedures, instantly eliminating stubborn fat with no discomfort or downtime. Unlike other fat reduction alternatives, UltraShape® does not use heat or freeze fat. Therefore, the treatments are comfortable and leave no bruising or other visible remnants except for leaner body contours.
How UltraShape® Works
The stomach, hips, and thighs respond very favorably to UltraShape®, increasing patients’ confidence during bathing suit season and beyond.
UltraShape® helps patients achieve lean contours by delivering ultrasound energy directly below the skin surface, destroying fat cells. Rapidly changing pressure waves create vapor cavities in these fat cells and cause them to rupture. The body releases the fat in the form of triglycerides, which are processed by the liver and eliminated naturally. Remarkably, while this process takes place, the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels are left completely unharmed.
During the procedure, you will lie back and relax as Dr. Mesna uses the UltraShape® handpiece to deliver ultrasound to the treatment area. Most patients who have undergone the treatment describe the pulses as feeling similar to cell phone vibrations. The entire treatment takes 45 minutes to an hour from start to finish. Once the procedure is complete, you will walk out of the office with no swelling or pain, and resume your day as normal, exhibiting zero visible signs of your treatment.
While each patient’s experience will be a little different, most notice a difference in their body as early as two weeks after their first treatment. However, you should expect to see the best results after a series of three treatments, each set two weeks apart. This time frame gives your body the opportunity to clear the fat cells from your system.
Once fat cells are destroyed, they will not return. However, other neighboring fat cells can increase in size, so for best results, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eating a nutritious diet and adhering to a regular exercise routine.
Once the procedure is complete, you will walk out of the office with no swelling or pain, and resume your day as normal, exhibiting zero visible signs of your treatment.
