How The treatment Works
Do you know that Body Contouring can be achieved without surgical incisions or downtime. 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 body contouring 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. 3 or more sessions are recommended depending on how much reduction is desired.
Overall, this 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. Coolscuplting 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 clamps to target both upper and lower abdomen. And, just like Ultrashape, Coolscuplting generally needs multiple sessions for optimal reduction in a targeted area.
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 Coolscupting. The ultrasound technology waves in UltraShape treatments ruptures the face cell which results in its immediate destruction.
The UltraShape Power procedure is safe. 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 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 / Exilis Ultra Combo 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 my utilizing Exilis as well, more fat cells can be targeted which will increase fat loss circumference and also provide skin tightening for sagging skin. If you already have skin laxity in the area being treated we would highly recommend a combination treatment.
For a tightening effect, the Exilis Ultra device uses radio-frequency combined with ultrasound energy to tighten sagging skin and also 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.
Body contouring 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.
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.
How to know if Non-Invasive Laser Fat Removal is right for you.

- You have an undesirable “problem area” on your body, i.e. abdomen, flanks, back or thighs, etc.; or
