How The treatment Works
UltraShape Power uses ultrasound technology to rupture and destroy fat cells in the subcutaneous fat layer using focused ultrasound energy.
UltraShape’s ultrasound technology actually ruptures the fat cells, resulting in immediate destruction – unlike other devices that just melt fat out of the cell, but the cell stays intact.
Once ruptured, the contents of the cells are flushed through your lymphatic system and 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 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 results are not achieved until about 60-90 days after the final treatment session.
This is a FDA-approved machine, and the procedure is a virtually painless 1 hour long session. To achieve the maximum effect, 3 sessions are recommended.
Overall, this less costly than surgical liposuction with no pain or recovery time!
Ultrashape Power/Exilis Ultra Combo
Ultrasound and radio-frequency are the most studied and tested technologies for body contouring. When combined, it can increase fat loss while improving the look of cellulite and loose skin.
Exilis Ultra uses radio-frequency combined with ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and increase the metabolic activity of the fat cells, which causes fat to be released and the cells to shrink. By combining both devices, an enhanced result will be achieved as fat is removed and skin is tightened simultaneously.
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 the skin in the treated area already has some laxity, an Exilis Ultra skin tightening treatment after an UltraShape Power fat reduction session is recommended.
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 with diet and exercise programs;
- 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.
UltraShape Power and Exilis procedures target 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 vs Other Treatments
The ultrasound technology in UltraShape treatments results in the immediate destruction of fat cells.
UltraShape 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.
RealSelf reports nearly 94% of patients surveyed reported that they were satisfied with their UltraShape laser fat removal results.
When looking at clinical studies, it shows that UltraShape treatments have the highest percentage of laser fat reduction versus other devices by about 32 percent.

Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Fat Removal
We recommend three laser fat removal treatments, spaced two weeks apart. In addition, pre-hydrating and maintaining high water hydration is required to assist your body in clearing the fat from your system.
Since fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments. Naturally, weight gain can still occur if you are not maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
UltraShape Power is an effective nonsurgical alternative to patients seeking a reduction of localized fat deposits without undergoing surgery. There is no pain or downtime.
You do not have to wait until after you lose weight to have this procedure. Dieting and exercise is most effective on visceral fat, whereas UltraShape laser fat removal targets the subcutaneous fat that is the most difficult to reduce with diet and exercise.
Hydration is an extremely important component for successful improvement of the area being treated. You should drink at least 64 oz of water starting 2 days prior to your appointment. Also, be sure to:
- Wear lightweight clothes to your treatment
- Eat healthy – avoid high fat foods
For Exilis treatments, you may also take Advil or Motrin for added comfort 1 hour prior to your treatment.
