UltraShape(R) Non-Invasive Fat Reduction and Body Contouring Clinical Study Results Featured at American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery Meeting

YOQNEAM, Israel and SAN RAMON, California, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Results of an independent multi-treatment clinical study of the UltraShape(R) Contour I, the first clinically proven non-invasive solution for fat reduction and body contouring using non-thermal selective focused ultrasound will be presented at the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery annual meeting on April 4, 2008 in Kissimmee, Florida. The presentation is entitled "Lipotripsy: Non-invasive Ultrasonic Selective Destruction of Adipocytes using UltraShape" will take place during the scientific session The Cutting Edge in Optical Diagnostics and Therapeutics of Tissues and Cells.

Hector Leal-Silva, M.D., a dermatologic surgeon based in Monterrey, Mexico, will present the results of the 36 patient clinical study using the UltraShape system on localized fat deposits in the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. The study showed definitive, measurable results in 100 percent of patients including an average of two-inch (5cm) reduction in circumference in the abdomen after a series of three treatments, one month apart. CT scans taken in a subset of study subjects showed objective quantifiable fat thickness reduction. Photographic assessment, weight and circumferential measures were evaluated before and after each treatment and one month after the last treatment. Visual contour improvement was seen in over 85% of patients as assessed by an independent panel of physicians. Ninety-four percent (94%) of patients were satisfied with the procedure. In addition, there were no adverse events reported.

"With the major shift in patient demand toward non-invasive, pain-free, no-downtime procedures UltraShape has become a core procedure offering in my aesthetic practice," said Leal. "My clinical study demonstrated measurable circumference reduction and visual improvement in body contour in all patients. Moreover, my patients are happy with a high percentage of them returning for treatment of other body areas or recommending UltraShape to friends and family."

"Dr. Leal-Silva's impressive clinical study results combined with his successful commercial experience with UltraShape further adds to our growing body of evidence supporting UltraShape as the clinically proven non-invasive option for the reduction of localized fat deposits and improvement in body contour," said Rodger Stewart, President and Chief Executive Officer of UltraShape Inc.

About the UltraShape(R) Contour I

The UltraShape Contour I system, based on patented focused ultrasound technology, is the first scientifically and clinically proven non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring solution for both men and women. The device produces mechanical, non-thermal, acoustic effects which target and selectively destroy fat cells, leaving surrounding critical structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue intact. The UltraShape procedure is guided by proprietary real-time tracking and guidance technology designed to deliver smooth, uniform body contouring results. The software guarantees adherence to a pre-determined treatment algorithm minimizing 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, and the vast majority of patients report no pain or discomfort. After treatment, patients immediately resume their daily routines with no need for maintenance treatments. The UltraShape procedure is available in 50 countries and over 55,000 patient treatments have been performed worldwide with high patient satisfaction. The UltraShape Contour I received the CE Mark in 2005 and a medical device license from Health Canada in 2007. The UltraShape Contour I system is not available for sale in the United States.
