UltraShape® Body Contouring in Houston & Katy, Texas
UltraShape is the first and only non-invasive body-shaping procedure cleared by the FDA that uses focused ultrasound energy to reduce fat on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and bra fat. This very comfortable body contouring treatment leaves no visible signs afterward, so you can immediately return to your daily life after a treatment at our office in Houston or Katy, TX. Results can be seen as quickly as 2 weeks. To supercharge your results, we have a combination treatment called UltraShape Supermode, where UltraShape is combined with VelaShape™ for additional fat destruction and enhanced skin tightening.
How It Works
UltraShape eliminates fat cells permanently. It differs from weight loss, which can only shrink fat cells. We can use different settings to target fat at different depths.
The ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body, releasing the fat in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. The surrounding tissue, nerves, and muscle are left unharmed by this highly selective targeting process.
Our combination treatment, UltraShape Supermode, is a double-pass treatment with the UltraShape. This means the designated area is treated twice in a single session. This mode delivers the most energy at different depths resulting in more fat volume destruction. We then pair the Supermode UltraShape treatment with a short VelaShape treatment for skin tightening and even more fat destruction.
Your Beautiful Skin
We can safely and effectively use UltraShape on the abdomen, flanks, bra fat, buttocks, and thighs to create a smoother, contoured appearance after just 3 visits. Although the destroyed fat cells will never come back, your remaining fat cells can still enlarge, leading to weight gain. Therefore, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after UltraShape treatments by eating a healthy diet and exercising. By keeping a steady weight, the results of your treatment may last indefinitely.
We can also use UltraShape as a complement or alternative to other body contouring treatments. Our team can talk to you about a variety of options, including CoolSculpting® and Cellfina™, to determine which treatments suit you best.
At your consultation, your provider will determine the best depth for you, and 1 to 2 layers of fat will be destroyed over the course of your treatments. UltraShape and UltraShape Supermode treatments consist of 3 visits, each lasting approximately 1 hour, depending on the area you choose to treat.
Before treating the selected areas, your aesthetician uses tape to section off the areas. Some results will be visible just 2 weeks after the first treatment, but optimal results will be seen 30 days after your final treatment.
There is little to no downtime with UltraShape or UltraShape Supermode, so you can return quickly to your normal activities. Side effects are generally minor and may include redness, and tenderness, which usually disappear quickly. There is no special care needed after treatment.Back to Top
