What is UltraShape®?
UltraShape® is the most effective way to tone your abdomen without surgery.

The ultrasound technology used during UltraShape® procedures reduces unwanted fat cells in the abdomen that are resistant to diet and exercise alone.
What is the UltraShape® procedure?
UltraShape® is a safe, effective procedure to tone the abdomen without surgery. During this non-invasive procedure, a specialized device that uses ultrasound technology is applied to the skin of the abdomen. Ultrasound energy is emitted through the skin into the fat compartment to target the underlying fat cells. The fat cells in the area are destroyed by the energy and will be naturally eliminated by the body.
