Most body contouring procedures use extremely cold temperatures or thermal energy to destroy fat cells, but those can cause quite a bit of discomfort. UltraShape® V3, on the other hand, uses focused ultrasound waves to quickly and effortlessly destroy fat cells while leaving the other tissue untouched. For patients who are finally ready to eliminate subcutaneous fat without incisions or scars, few body contouring treatment options are as effective as UltraShape® V3.
A Look at Subcutaneous Fat
Every human body actually contains a number of different types of fat. Some of this fat protects our organs and holds our muscles together, but the outer subcutaneous layers of fat provide us with no benefits. This is the fat that often seems to develop overnight in areas such as the thighs, buttocks and midsection. This type of fat can also increase a patient’s risk of a wide variety of additional health problems.
Hormones and Fat
Getting rid of subcutaneous fat is no easy task. This is because our changing hormones create a number of interesting side effects as we grow older. Subcutaneous fat is stored near the midsection as an “emergency” energy supply. Hormones such as cortisol tell our bodies to store fat in case food will not be available in the future.
Even with a strict diet and rigorous exercise program, your body will do everything in its power to hold onto this fat. These are just some of the reasons why treatment options such as UltraShape® V3 have become so popular in recent years.
The Technology Behind UltraShape® V3
Over the last few decades, a number studies have found that our fat cells are much different than all of the other soft tissue cells in our bodies. These cells react in an unusual manner whenever they are exposed to extremely cold temperatures, thermal energy and even ultrasound waves.
UltraShape® V3 was developed with this knowledge in mind. During these body contouring sessions, concentrated ultrasound waves are directed at fat cells in order to weaken and destroy them.
The Benefits of UltraShape® V3
The biggest benefit of this unique body contouring procedure is the fact that it is completely non-invasive. While surgical options can be effective, most patients are not ready to take weeks off of work or live with scars for the rest of their life.
UltraShape® V3 is also one of the quickest fat removal treatments on the market. The average patient will be out of their appointment in just 20 minutes with no downtime afterward.
What to Expect
During and after the treatment, most individuals feel nothing more than a slight tingling sensation. On average, patients need at least three treatment sessions for the best results. For patients who do not gain weight in the future, this body contouring treatment can be a permanent solution to abdominal fat.
