Video is on the site, which features Dr. Ari Benchetrit from Montreal and a patient demonstrating the much anticipated ultrasound fat reduction and body contouring device from Ultrashape.
"Patients spend a half hour under the UltraShape machine, and the sound waves converge to hit the fat cells under the skin and make them vibrate at a very high speed, causing them to be destroyed. Experts say the fat is then carried to the liver, where it is removed from your body safely. But the procedure is not for everyone.
"This is not a weight loss procedure. This is not for somebody who really needs to lose a lot of weight," Benchetrit said."The official word from Ultrashape: "The company plans to complete the clinical study early this year but it is premature to speculate on the timing of FDA approval and availability in the U.S."
