    UltraShape – Slim Down with No Surgery


    While other popular nonsurgical methods for fat removal and body contouring use extreme heat or cold to destroy fat cells, UltraShape uses focused, pulsed ultrasound waves that generate neither heat nor cold but still prove deadly to the fat cells most stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise, a.k.a. the subcutaneous fat layer. The device, which was cleared by the FDA last spring, works by sending ultrasound waves directly into fat, shaking their membranes to the point where they literally collapse. This “cavitation” process doesn’t harm any other tissues—e.g., blood vessels or nerves—and remains of the dissolved fat cells are eventually processed by the body via the liver. Because the fat isn’t heated or frozen, patients have reported little to no pain and minimal recovery time and bruising—which you can’t hide if you’re doing this during beach season.
