Ultrasound energy is utilized commonly as a means to see images inside our body, such as internal organs or fetuses in the womb of pregnant women. Additionally, it can also be used for therapeutic purposes, facilitating the healing of damage in deep tissues and as well as breaking up kidney stones.

Nonetheless, recent investigations in the realm of cosmetic research have come up with innovative ways in which ultrasound energy can be put to use. UltraShapeŪ has come up with a wholly non-invasive body contouring treatment that successfully and safely reduces nasty fat deposits in both men and women. The treatment has been clinically proven to reduce fat thickness and body circumference.

UltraShapeŪ technology functions by using ultrasound waves which are directed at a specific target point on the body. Once the zone has been specified, the waves selectively break down undesirable fat cells without affecting any adjacent structures. An exclusive feature of UltraShapeŪ treatment is its highly sophisticated optical tracking and guidance system engineered to ensure safe, effective and uniform treatment.

What Can I Expect

Whenever it comes to cosmetic treatment, you need to keep in mind that no procedure will ever provide an ‘ideal’ aspect to your body. The aim of this kind of procedure is to achieve an improvement and enhance your appearance. This can help you boost your self-confidence and make you feel better about yourself, while keeping realistic expectations. This is one of the core values we have here at HCR; we want our clients to be completely satisfied with the results of their treatment and to heighten their self-assurance.

Procedure Planning

Before any type of procedure is performed, patients are strongly advised to have a detailed discussion with their doctor. By doing so, both parties have the opportunity to contribute in the whole process and to increase the client’s level of satisfaction.

People of all ages can receive an UltraShapeŪ treatment; as we mentioned above, the procedure is effective equally in women as in men. However, patients who submit themselves to this treatment must be in good health and have localized fat deposits.

The Procedure

The UltraShapeŪ system uses patented technology to deliver focused ultrasound energy at an exact depth within the subcutaneous fat layer. Like we mentioned above, it selectively targets and disrupts only fat cells, leaving critical neighboring structures (for example: skin, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) intact both within and around the focal area. The pulsed acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy join in a confined focal volume causing a non-thermal, mechanical destruction of fat cells.

What makes this treatment even more unique is the optical tracking and guidance system that ensures safe, effective treatment. Using a single camera, the designated area is captured by the computerized system. A high-tech software algorithm is then used to map the treatment zone in 3D, displaying the mapped zone on the computer screen. In real-time, the guidance system then leads your specialist along the mapped zone, indicating which specific point is to be treated. During the procedure, the tracking system ensures that each zone is treated only once, prohibiting treatment outside the pre-marked area. Consequently the designated region receives homogenous exposure to the treatment, ensuring optimal results.

Moreover, the innovative tracking system addresses the dynamic nature of the treated area, a major challenge when it comes to body contouring. This means that as the patient breathes and moves, fat, being non-rigid tissue, undergoes spatial deformities. UltraShapeŪ overcomes these obstacles by recording and synchronizing the body’s position in real-time thus enabling the patient to move freely without having any effect on the treatment.


As with any type of cosmetic treatment, complications are unusual but they sometimes do happen. However, they are usually minor and can be reduced by following your doctor’s directions precisely before and after the procedure.

Make sure to ask your doctor concerning any risks you might have to face when undertaking this procedure. However, you must keep in mind that our certified group of doctors works full-time to prevent such scenarios from happening; we value the health of our patients above anything else.
