About the UltraShape(R) Contour I

The UltraShape Contour I system, which is authorized for marketing outside the U.S., incorporates patented non-thermal selective focused ultrasound technology. Contour I, is the first scientifically and clinically proven non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring device for both men and women. The device is designed to produce mechanical, non-thermal, acoustic effects which target and selectively disrupt fat cells, leaving surrounding critical structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue intact.

The UltraShape procedure is available in 57 countries and over 100,000 patient treatments have been performed worldwide with high patient satisfaction. The UltraShape procedure is guided by proprietary real-time tracking and guidance technology designed to deliver smooth, uniform body contouring results. The software provides a pre-determined treatment algorithm designed to minimize risk of contour irregularities, a common side effect of liposuction. The UltraShape procedure is performed during a convenient, "walk-in, walk-out" session carried out in an office-based environment; it requires no anesthesia or sedation. After treatment, patients immediately resume their daily routines with no need for maintenance treatments.

The UltraShape Contour I received the CE Mark in 2005 and a medical device license from Health Canada in 2007. The Contour I system is not available for sale in the U.S. and the Contour Plus system is an investigational product limited by U.S. law to investigational use only.
