Traditionally, the non-rigidity of fat has been a significant obstacle to providing uniform body contouring treatment of fatty deposits because as the patient breathes and moves, fat deposits change in shape slightly.
The UltraShape system addresses this problem by synchronizing the body's position (in real-time) in order to enable the UltraShape to compensate for patient movement.
Furthermore, UltraShape system delivers focused ultrasound energy at a precise depth within the fat layer. UltraShape selectively targets and disrupts only fat cells, leaving critical surrounding tissue such as skin, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue intact. Clinical tests confirm that UltraShape mechanically destroys fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
UltraShape is the most precise body contouring treatment available: an optical tracking and guidance system has been developed for UltraShape to guarantee an effective treatment. UltraShape uses a camera to capture the treatment area. A state-of-the-art software is then used to render a three dimensional image of the UltraShape treatment area. UltraShape’s sophisticated tracking system then displays this rendition on the computer screen. Then, UltraShape’s guidance system leads the user along the rendered area, to indicate exactly which areas are to be treated. UltraShape’s tracking system performs another important function by ensuring that each treatment area is treated only once. UltraShape’s guidance system prohibits the focused ultrasound from extending outside the mapped treatment area. The combination of these technologies allows UltraShape to produce a uniformly treated area which results in a smooth contouring of the treated area.
The final component of UltraShape used to ensure treatment precision is an integrated contact sensor producing real-time feedback to ensure appropriate contact between the treatment head and the skin. This will ensure that UltraShape is delivering the right amount of energy to the skin.
