How The treatment Works
Do you know that Body Contouring can be achieved without surgical incisions or downtime? UltraShape Power uses ultrasound energy to painlessly rupture and destroy your fat cells.
In a clinical study, UltraShape Power showed a 32 percent reduction in abdominal fat layer thickness.
Once the cell is ruptured, the fat content of the cells are released. Your lymphatic system then flushes it through your system and it gets naturally cleared from your body.
Over the next 90 days, you’ll notice a reduction in fat volume. Results are expected to last, especially if you maintain your weight and enjoy a healthy diet and exercise.
About UltraShape Power
With UltraShape Power, you can achieve body contouring and fat loss in an area that has always been a problem for you. The beginning of fat reduction is usually seen within the first 14 days post-treatment! Maximum body contouring results are not achieved until about 60-90 days after the final treatment session.
Body contouring with the FDA-approved Ultrashape Power laser is a virtually painless 1 hour long treatment. 3 or more sessions are recommended depending on how much reduction is desired.
Overall, this is less costly than surgical liposuction with no pain or recovery time!
About Coolsculpting and Other Treatments vs Ultrashape Power
We chose Ultrashape Power as our technology for body contouring and excess fat removal vs Coolsculpting as it does not have a limitation to the size of area being treated.
Coolsculpting freezes the fat with a clamp on suction type device. Coolsculpting pricing is by the clamp. Most often an area like the abdomen requires 2-4 clamps to target both upper and lower abdomen. And, just like Ultrashape, Coolsculpting generally needs multiple sessions for optimal reduction in a targeted area.
For body contouring with Ultrashape, we use a flattop handpiece that glides across the skin area being treated. The area to be treated is mapped out with a surgical marker. It can be any shape or size – horizontal or vertical in and in any pattern – it does not have to be just what fits in a suction handpiece like Coolsculpting. The ultrasound technology waves in UltraShape treatments ruptures the fat cell which results in its immediate destruction.
UltraShape body contouring laser fat removal treatments are pain free and do not have any post-treatment soreness, lumps, or “shelving” most often seen in CoolSculpting or standard liposuction and laser lipolysis. Other competing devices like i-lipo don’t rupture the fat cell, but instead melt the fat out of the fat cell – but the fat cell stays intact.
UltraShape Power is FDA approved and destroys the fat cell. The procedure is safe and effective. It targets fat cells in a particular area, whilst protecting the outside layers of skin, nerves and blood vessels in a virtually pain-free method.
Ultrashape Power / Exilis Ultra Combo Treatment
By utilizing both lasers you can increase fat loss and tighten excess skin. Body contouring with Ultrashape and Exilis is an ideal treatment for Mommy Makeovers. Many woman with post pregnancy belly fat with excess skin love this treatment.
Ultrasound and radio-frequency are the most studied and tested technologies for body contouring. Fat loss is enhanced when we use both devices. Ultrashape will destroy fat cells, but by utilizing Exilis as well, it increases the metabolic activity of the fat cells so more fat cells can be targeted. The increase in metabolic activity causes more fat to be released and the cells to shrink. By combining both devices, an enhanced result will be achieved as fat is removed and sagging skin is tightened simultaneously. If you already have loose excess skin in the area being treated we would highly recommend a combination treatment.
Results of a body contouring procedure for fat reduction with an UltraShape/Exilis Ultra combo is usually seen 3 weeks after the first session. Patient satisfaction rate is high with circumferential reduction after 3 treatments of each device, spaced at weekly intervals.
All of this occurs in a virtually painless 60 minute in-office procedure with no downtime or limitations on your activities!
This procedure is an affordable, cost-effective solution compared to full liposuction.
If you already have sagging skin in the area to be treated, we highly recommend an Exilis Ultra skin tightening treatment after an UltraShape Power fat reduction treatment.
RealSelf reports nearly 94% of patients surveyed reported that they were satisfied with their UltraShape laser fat removal results.
How to know if Non-Invasive Laser Fat Removal is right for you.
Generally, laser fat removal is the right choice for you if:
- You are struggling with pockets of fat that won’t diminish even if your dieting and exercising.
- You have an undesirable “problem area” on your body, i.e. abdomen, flanks, back or thighs, etc.; or
- You wish to achieve a trimmer appearance without having to undergo major surgery.
- You want to stick to a weight loss plan, but also want to reshape a body area.
If your abdominal muscles have been stretched out due to pregnancy a surgical tummy tuck would be recommended for a mommy makeover.
