We are very excited to be the only practice in the Baltimore area to offer patients the new UltraShape system.

A recent press release announced that that new UltraShape body shaping system has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for fat cell destruction. While not yet available for widespread purchase in the US, landmark dermatology center Maryland Laser Skin and Vein is one of the first and only practices on the east coast to use this advanced technique.

“We are very excited to be the only practice in the Baltimore area to offer patients the new UltraShape system. UltraShape is a welcome addition to the wide variety of non-surgical body contouring treatments already available at Maryland Laser Skin and Vein,” said Dr. Robert Weiss.

UltraShape is a non-invasive fat reduction system designed to destroy fat cells and contour the body for a slimmer appearance. Using focused and pulsed ultrasound technology, UltraShape targets unwanted fat without harming surrounding skin tissue, nerves, or muscles. Patients can enjoy noticeable results within two weeks without the pain and downtime of traditional liposuction procedures.

“More people are turning to non-surgical body contouring methods because they don’t want to undergo painful and costly surgery,” said Dr. Margaret Weiss. “With UltraShape, patients with stubborn excess fat can get their desired results without any incisions, bleeding, or downtime.”

Once UltraShape’s ultrasound technology destroys the unwanted fat cells, the liver is able to process the fat so that it is naturally dispelled from the body. While not intended as a weight loss method, UltraShape is effective in treating small pockets of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise.

“UltraShape sets itself apart from other body contouring procedures by immediately destroying fat cells and providing visible results in a shorter amount of time,” said Dr. Karen Beasley. “We fully anticipate that the UltraShape technology will continue to provide impressive results for our patients.”

Founded in 1984 by Drs. Robert and Margaret Weiss, Maryland Laser Skin and Vein Institute is the greater Baltimore area’s leading medical and aesthetic dermatology practice. In 2000, dermatologist Karen Beasley, MD joined the practice. With over 45 different types of laser and light based therapies, as well as numerous injectable treatments, the board certified dermatologists at Maryland Laser Skin and Vein Institute are experts in treating a wide range of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, aging skin and non-invasive fat removal.
