UltraShape Power is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive (laser lipo) body-shaping procedure that uses targeted ultrasound technology to eliminate fat cells in the abdominal area.
What can I expect during an UltraShape Power treatment?
UltraShape Power is nonsurgical, which means there are no incisions or anesthetic required for this procedure. There is no downtime and the entire procedure is pain-free without visible signs of the treatment, unlike other laser lipo or fat reduction procedures that freeze or heat fat cells in order to break them down.
The UltraShape Power system works by emitting acoustic waves of focused ultrasonic energy (200 ± 30 KHz frequency) that converge into a confined focal volume underneath the skin, thereby, targeting only subcutaneous fat at a controlled depth. Unlike traditional ultrasound technology, UltraShape Power’s energy transmits pulsed ultrasound, allowing control over temperature elevation.
UltraShape vs. Other Laser Lipo Procedures
There are a number of non-invasive techniques, with various mechanisms of action, for reducing localized subcutaneous adipose tissue. Cryolipolysis produces cold-induced apoptosis of adipocytes, while thermal approaches include radiofrequency (RF) energy, which triggers apoptosis of fat cells, and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), which causes coagulative necrosis and cell death.
Disclaimer: Typical results for UltraShape Power consist of 3 or more sessions depending on the severity of the case.
