Ultrashape: Non-surgical Fat Reduction
Ultrashape – no pain, no downtime, effective fat reduction system. An alternative to liposuction for targeted pockets of unwanted and hard to shift fat such as saddle bags and post baby tummies. Now with the newest transducer head, we can successful treat areas that are hard to tackle – inner thighs, arms and knees quickly and effectively. It is a truly non-invasive procedure with no needles, no incisions, no scars and no recovery time.
A healthy lifestyle alone does not always give you the body shape you would like. Even with diet and exercise, problem areas such as the abdomen, flanks (love handles), and outer thighs (saddle bags), may remain unchanged because weight loss does not target a specific area of your body. No wonder so many people are unhappy about their figures.

“It is great to be able to offer our patients a safe and effective non-invasive solution to fat loss that delivers impressive results without any downtime. The exciting development this device brings to the market is the ability to focus the ultrasound energy below the skin and destroy the fat cells without any harm to neighbouring tissues. The effect is permanent, so long as the patient maintains good diet and exercise.” Mr Christopher Inglefield
Fat cells are dispersed unevenly throughout the body, and their distribution differs from person to person. Some people have a greater number of fat cells around the waist and hips, while others have more around their thighs. This is why body shapes vary so much and why so many of us are likely to gain weight in “all the wrong places”. UltraShape™ can change our contours by reducing the number of fat cells in a problem area.
UltraShape performs non-invasive body contouring: reducing localized fat deposits and body circumference without surgery or injections.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a suitable candidate for Ultrashape?
UltraShape is aimed primarily at healthy people who are not obese but would like to improve their body contour by reducing local areas of fat from the abdomen, outer thighs, or flanks. During the consultation your goals and concerns will be discussed and a full medical history and examination will be performed, including a full body analysis with the state of the art InBody Analyzer, to assess if UltraShape is right for you.
What does the Ultrashape treatment involve?
After a consultation and Analysis the therapist will take some measurements of the desired areas to be treated, the system uses a specialized camera which is placed over the patient’s body to ensure the same areas are treated on every session.
While you relax on the couch the therapist hold a small hand piece called an Transducer,that applies pulses to remove the fat, a small amount of gel is applied to help the hand piece glide over the skin.
The sensation has been described by outpatients as “” a small zap of heat”” the treatment is comptable and Depending on the size and number of areas to be treated – your treatment with UltraShape can take from 1 ½ hrs. Accurate details of treatment times, to ensure that you get the best result, will be discussed with you during your consultation.
What are the benefits of Ultrashape?
Clinical results show that in three treatments, patients can see up to 4cm reduction in circumference. Clinical trials have shown an average of 2 cm reduction in circumference even after a single treatment. As with any non-invasive procedure the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results.
The Therapist will be happy to discuss this in detail with you during a consultation.The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment. After the UltraShape procedure, released contents of the broken-down fat cells are naturally cleared by the body over a 2-4 week period. Circumference and fat thickness reduction is usually seen within the first 14 – 28 days post treatment. Maximum results are seen about 28 days post the final treatment. Monitoring of your results will be performed using the InBody Analyzer and serial measurements.
What equipment do you use?
The clinically-proven UltraShape procedure is the most widely used non-invasive solution for fat reduction and body contouring. It uses focused ultrasound to target and reduce unwanted localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference and improve body shape. The UltraShape procedure is intended to help average to moderately overweight men and women reduce localized fat deposits around the abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips and thighs. It offers a totally non-invasive, painless no downtime alternative to patients seeking reduced circumference (a slimmer body) and an improved body contour. UltraShape involves no incisions, needles, injections, recovery time or maintenance treatments whatsoever. UltraShape is an ideal non-surgical procedure that enables men and women to improve their figure, go down in clothing size, and improve the shape in problem fatty areas that regular diet and exercise usually don’t get rid of.
What are the post treatment instructions?
There is no down time with the UltraShape procedure. You can return to work, exercise immediately following your treatment. We advise to keep the skin cool for 24 hours post treatment and avoid or limit your consumption of Alcohol until the course of treatments are complete.
Each patient follows a personalized program and undergoes a recommended series of one to three treatments in order to maximize results. Clinical studies have shown a measurable reduction in body circumference in most patients, even after a single treatment. The series of treatments is performed in two weekly intervals, giving time for the body’s natural metabolic processes to safely clear away the destroyed fat cells. During these intervals, patients can treat other areas of the body and undergo other complementary procedures, we also use the Velashape to tighten the skin around the area to minimize loose skin. During the UltraShape procedure, the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is broken down and transported to the liver. The fat is processed via the body’s natural mechanisms and turns into building blocks for energy therefore we advise to limit the consumption of Alcohol while you are having the treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
The results following fat reduction with the Ultrashape procedure will be long lasting provided that you maintain a healthy diet and adequate exercise, however you require maintenance treatments in the future if. The fat cells are permanently removed from the treated area(s). Extensive clinical trials and over 50,000 patient treatments performed worldwide have demonstrated the excellent safety profile of the UltraShape procedure.
Are there any contraindications?
All patients proceeding with treatment should be in good health, we will ask you to fill out a medical history at the time of your consultation to establish whether you are medically suitable.
