Until recently, fat cells could only be destroyed by invasive procedures, such as liposuction and lipolysis.
UltraShape uses technology similar to that which has been used in medicine for more than twenty years to break up kidney stones by means of ultrasound. Patented technology with mechanical vibration and focused ultrasound is used to destroy fat cells at a specified depth.
The content of the fat cells is naturally excreted from the body through the lymphatic system. The advantage of focused ultrasound is that it only destroys fat cells, whereas the surrounding tissue, e.g. nerves, small veins and binding tissue remain undamaged.
With this technology it is possible to destroy fat cells on the abdomen and hips.
