Overview: Ultrashape Fat Reduction

UltraShape is the first and only non-invasive body contouring treatment to use proprietary pulsed focused ultrasound to immediately destroy fat cells—and deliver noticeable results in two weeks. UltraShape emits acoustic waves of focused ultrasound energy, which converge to target subcutaneous fat at a controlled depth. Yet, unlike a traditional ultrasound, UltraShape’s ultrasound energy pulses, allowing the doctor control over temperature elevation so that fat is destroyed instantly, selectively, and mechanically rather than thermally. Cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Craig Jonov proudly offers patients in the greater Seattle area this liposuction alternative.

UltraShape Technique

Using ultrasound energy, UltraShape targets fat cells, destroying them instantly, so patients see results within two weeks. Because the ultrasound energy is pulsed and focused, UltraShape targets the fat cells mechanically, without heating them and without damaging nearby tissue. Dr. Jonov treats the designated area only once, therefore, ensuring a complete and uniform treatment.

Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, the content of the cells is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The fat is then processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.

Are Treatments Painful?

Most patients report a comfortable experience, and side effects are extremely rare. There are no post treatment lumps, bumps, soreness or numbness. UltraShape is also a no-downtime treatment, so you can resume your normal activities right away.

How Many Treatments?

We recommend three treatments spaced two weeks apart and spacing treatments gives your body time to clear the fat cells from your system.

Long Lasting Results?

Because fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments later on. However, you should still maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the fat cells from coming back.

UltraShape Differences

UltraShape treatments result in the immediate destruction of fat cells. Furthermore, results are seen as early as two weeks. UltraShape treatments are also comfortable and not associated with post treatment soreness, lumps, or bumps. Additionally, 3D mapping of treatments ensures that energy is spread evenly, therefore minimizing contour irregularities—a common side effect of liposuction.

Is UltraShape Right for me?

The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to moderately overweight men and women improve their body shape and contour. Therefore, UltraShape offers an effective non-surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery. To hone the results of the treatments, Dr. Jonov recommends that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Lynnwood, Kirkland & Bellevue, WA

My experience with having an ultrashape treatment today on my inside thigh area was a good one. It was painless and comfortable lasting about an hour. The room was pleasant and relaxing. Renette , the ultrashape technician was very professional yet personal and made me feel completely relaxed, kept me informed on every step she did and was informative regarding any questions i had about the procedure. Would not hesitate to share with all my friends.

SusanThank you Gallery staff for assisting me in aging gracefully.
