Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, many of us struggle with parts of the body where fat seems to simply refuse to go away. If you’ve found that your diet and exercise regimen are not quite enough to address your problem areas, our newest cosmetic technology may be able to help. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA) is pleased to announce the addition of UltraShape® to its line of skincare products and services. UltraShape® is a non-invasive fat-reduction system that can help provide long-lasting fat elimination in some of the most common problem areas, such as the belly and flanks.UltraShape® is an FDA-approved abdominal circumference-reduction system that destroys fat via mechanical disruption. This means that the biological material inside the fat cells is released and the cells are “broken.” Unlike other fat-reduction systems that merely shrink the fat, UltraShape® removes it altogether. Once the fat is destroyed, the body’s natural metabolic processes “flush” the fat away to be processed by the liver, but don’t worry – this is no more harmful to the body than eating a greasy meal!
UltraShape® works by utilizing ultrasound technology to selectively target subcutaneous fat. It sends out acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy that cause instant fat destruction. The technology is completely non-invasive and pain-free. Most patients report feeling nothing but a sensation of warmth or mild tingling in the area being treated.
It is recommended that patients complete two to three UltraShape® sessions to achieve maximum results. Sessions should be spaced a few weeks apart or at the direction of your dermatologist. One of the most exciting aspects of UltraShape® is that it requires zero downtime. Patients can expect to return to normal activity immediately following treatment and see full results within four weeks of the final session. Most UltraShape® patients experience body circumference reduction, on average, of around 4 centimeters. There are currently no known risks associated with UltraShape® fat reduction treatment.
