UltraShape(TM) Contour I Featured in ASPS Hot Topics Panel
UltraShape North America Forms Multidisciplinary Scientific Advisory
(press release from UltraShape NA Inc.)
SAN FRANCISCO, October 9 - The UltraShape(TM) Contour I, the first
non-invasive ultrasound solution for body contouring, was featured in the
"Non-Surgical Body Contouring" panel at this year's Hot Topics in Plastic
Surgery seminar at Plastic Surgery 2006, the annual conference of the American
Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The much-watched Hot Topics in Plastic
Surgery presents and assesses new innovations by some of the world's leading
In continued steps toward establishing its operations in North America,
UltraShape NA Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of UltraShape Inc., also
announced from the conference the formation of a U.S. Scientific Advisory
Board consisting of a multidisciplinary group of experts in body contouring
and non-invasive aesthetic procedures, drawing on leading academicians,
plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
Christopher Inglefield, BSC, FRCS (Plast), was selected to present on his
extensive clinical experience with the UltraShape(TM) Contour I in his London
plastic surgery practice since the product received the CE Mark in July 2005.
His data demonstrated his patients experienced an average 6.3 centimeter
(approximately 2.5 inch) reduction in circumference after three treatments.
"Specialists such as myself who are experienced with the Contour I are
advancing treatment protocols that have yielded incremental results with over
ninety percent patient satisfaction," he reported. "Also, our patients tell us
how they love the fact that the UltraShape(TM) treatment is a non-invasive,
no-downtime, painless approach to treat troublesome fat deposits." Inglefield
also noted that the UltraShape(TM) technology preserves vasculature, nerves,
and connective tissue and that his patients have experienced no known adverse
Since its launch outside the United States last year, the UltraShape(TM)
Contour I has been successfully integrated into nearly 150 aesthetic practices
in 37 countries. It's been used in more than 14,000 patient treatments with no
reported serious side effects.
Mr. Inglefield is a leading plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the
United Kingdom specializing in facial aesthetics and breast and body
contouring, and he is a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, the British
Association of Plastic Surgeons, British Burn Association, British
Microsurgical Society, British Association of Surgical Oncology and the Royal
Society of Medicine.
UltraShape North America U.S. Scientific Advisory Board
To guide its continued rigorous scientific and research efforts and
provide clinical insights into product design in commercial applications,
UltraShape North America formed a Scientific Advisory Board comprised of
nationally recognized experts in non-invasive aesthetic procedures, including
leading plastic surgeons, dermatologists as well as academicians. The Board is
chaired by Jeffrey Kenkel, MD, FACS, Professor and Vice Chairman of the
Department of Plastic Surgery and the Director of the Clinical Center for
Cosmetic Laser Treatment at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical
Center. Members include pioneers in earlier body contouring techniques;
current and past officers and directors of the American Society of Plastic
Surgeons, American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, North American
Lipoplasty Society, American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, American
Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and the
leading private practitioners and renowned experts in metabolism research.
"Since UltraShape North America was established earlier this year, we've
made significant progress toward preparing for commercialization of the
Contour I in the United States and Canada," said Bob Gerberich, president of
UltraShape North America. "We're fortunate to be working with scientific and
clinical thought leaders of such stature. As a result of these relationships
and the continued advancements of treatment protocols and patient outcomes, we
are positioned well in North America to build on the great commercial success
that Contour I has enjoyed outside the United States."
About the ASPS Hot Topics in Plastic Surgery Seminar
Sponsored by the ASPS, the largest plastic surgery organization in the
world, the seminar was held on October 7 as a special educational program
designed solely for the purpose of research and education in plastic surgery.
Many topics presented at past Hot Topics seminars are now mainstream
techniques use in physician offices, including ultrasound and power assisted
liposuction and non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. The
subjects presented during this seminar are under investigation and development
and are often, as in the case of the UltraShape(TM) Contour I, pending FDA
About the Contour I
The UltraShape(TM) Contour I with G-NIUS(TM) (Guided, Non-Invasive,
Focused Ultrasound, Selective) Technology is the first non-invasive ultrasound
solution for body contouring that has been clinically demonstrated to deliver
measurable circumferential reduction in a single treatment. The G-NIUS(TM)
Technology is based on two proprietary technological innovations:
Non-Invasive Focused Ultrasound
The UltraShape(TM) G-NIUS(TM) technology is based on focused therapeutic
ultrasound which is designed to selectively target adipocytes (fat cells). A
predetermined amount of ultrasound energy is applied to the subcutaneous fat
layer where acoustic waves converge in a confined focal volume causing a
selective mechanical affect on fat cell membranes.
Most importantly, since energy is delivered in pulses, there is no
significant temperature elevation. This mechanical effect allows for tissue
selectivity - only adipose cells within the targeted area are affected while
surrounding tissues including blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue
Advanced Tracking and Guiding Software
The UltraShape(TM) treatment is guided by a real-time tracking and
guidance system designed to deliver smooth, uniform body contouring results.
The system's software algorithm maps the treatment area and guarantees
adherence to pre-determined treatment parameters minimizing risk of contour
irregularities, a common side effect of liposuction. The tracking system also
addresses the dynamic nature of the treated area, as it monitors and
synchronizes the body's position in real-time, enabling the patient to move
freely without impacting the treatment. Precision and safety are reinforced by
an imaging transducer which provides real-time feedback on acoustic contact,
thus ensuring proper transducer-to-skin contact and efficient energy delivery
to the treatment area.
The UltraShape(TM) Contour I system is not cleared by the FDA for
marketing in the United States.
