What is UltraShape? How does it work?

Have you been trying to find an effective fat-reducer for those stubborn areas of fat? UltraShape may be the answer you’re looking for, because it’s a great way to contour those fat pockets that won’t go away despite your commitment to eating right and exercising regularly. But what is UltraShape, and how does it work to reduce fat deposits.

What is UltraShape?
UltraShape is a non-invasive treatment for the reduction of abdominal fat. It uses focused ultrasound energy to selectively destroy fat cells, targeting those deposits of fat that are hard to lose. The device can reduce the thickness of the abdominal fat layer by up to 32%.It is an effective solution for individuals that are already near their ideal weight, but have small areas of pinchable fat they would like to get rid of. The fat cells that are treated with UltraShape are permanently eliminated.

UltraShape is a virtually painless procedure that can be used to treat areas of varying sizes. There is no downtime after the procedure, so patients can go right back to their regular activities after treatment.

How does it work?
The ultrasound energy is applied to the skin, and selectively targets the fat cells.  This is done with minimal increase in tissue pressure, causing the fat cells to break apart, without damaging the surrounding nerves or blood vessels.

A full abdominal treatment takes about 30 minutes to perform, and results can be seen about 2 weeks after treatment. However, it typically requires 3 sessions spaced at 2 week intervals, to achieve optimal outcomes.

Clients in Long Beach, California, can contact Laser Skin Care Center Dermatology Associates for more information on UltraShape.

What is SculpSure and how does it work?

If you are looking for a fast and effective treatment to eliminate body fat, SculpSure may be the right treatment for you. SculpSure has been receiving rave reviews by patients and physicians, because it is so effective in the battle against the bulge. But what is SculpSure, and how does it work.

What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a body contouring laser treatment that is FDA approved for fat reduction in the abdomen and flanks. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat to destroy the fat cells. SculpSure takes only 25 minutes to perform, and has no downtime. The device has 4 applicator heads, which facilitates the treatment of multiple areas at the same time.

How does it work?
SculpSure targets and heats the fat cells to between 42 to 46 degrees Celsius, without impacting the skin or tissues.  The device also has cooling pads that help to keep the skin at a safe and comfortable temperature. Once the desired temperature is reached, the fat cells break down. They are naturally passed out by the body over time, and are permanently eliminated. Most patients only need one treatment to get the desired outcome.

What to expect?
Results begin to be evident within 6 weeks, but final results can take up to 12 weeks. Participants in the clinical trials experienced a 24% fat reduction after a single treatment.

SculpSure body contouring is available in Boston, MA, at the offices of Dr. Sean Doherty. Dr. Doherty also has an office in Concord, MA. Dr. Doherty is very experienced with the technology as he was a principal investigator in the initial studies done for SculpSure.

Call (617)450-0070 to schedule an appointment for the office in Boston, or (978)369-4499 for Concord.
