Patients struggling with unwanted fat on the body may want to learn about the advantages of plastic surgery. However, when they do, they are often turned off at the idea of “going under the knife.” Surgical procedures often carry many risks including the risk of infection, the use of general anesthetics, and the unwanted scarring that results afterwards. Thanks to continued advances in technology, Dr. Debra Grayman of Pure Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics offers an alternative: Ultrashape.

Ultrashape is a non-invasive treatment available through a dermatologist to essentially destroy fat cells in the body with ultrasound energy. The treatment destroys the walls of the fat cells and transforms it into triglycerides, which are eliminated through the body naturally from the liver. Treatment does not affect the surrounding skin, muscles, and nerves, and just focuses on destruction of the fat cells. Traditional weight loss only shrinks fat cells, while Ultrashape treatment completely eliminates them.

The results of Ultrashape are long-lasting. However, they can take a few weeks to show. The process takes time, and over the course of several weeks and months, patients notice gradual reduction of fat in the treatment area. Many patients enjoy the slower results with Ultrashape because it gives the illusion of more gradual weight loss and changes that eliminate the appearance of “having work done.” This builds confidence and allows individuals to enjoy discreet services through Pure Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics.

Treatment areas in which Ultrashape may be used include:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks

Treatment time is relatively short, and patients are comfortable while they rest on the treatment table during their sessions. We recommend several sessions spaced weeks apart for optimum results. Patients often purchase a number of treatment sessions at once and then schedule them ahead of time. Months after their last treatment, they continue to see the changes to their body that they desired.
