UltraShape® Power: Frequently Asked Questions
What is UltraShape® Power?
UltraShape® is a non-invasive device intended to destroy fat cells. Through focused ultrasound pulses, it targets and eliminates stubborn fat without damaging surrounding tissues. This outpatient procedure creates measurable results without discomfort or extended recovery periods.
Is UltraShape® Power right for me?
The ideal UltraShape® patient wishes to eliminate fat that has proven resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure also helps to address persistent problem areas caused by genetics. For best results, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle. UltraShape® is not recommended for major weight loss.
How does UltraShape® Power work?
UltraShape® delivers ultrasound energy into the fat below the surface of the skin. The rapidly pulsing waves of energy create vapor cavities in the fat cells. By disrupting the structure of these fat cells, UltraShape® ruptures and destroys them. See how it works.
Is UltraShape® Power safe?
UltraShape® was FDA-approved for the destruction of fat in the abdominal region after conducting extensive clinical trials. Thousands of patients around the world have already received this treatment to great effect.
Are UltraShape® Power treatments painful?
Most people that receive the treatment report a comfortable experience. Side effects are extremely rare. After treatment, patients feel no soreness or numbness.
Are there any visible signs of treatment?
The UltraShape® procedure leaves no visible marks.
How soon can I expect to see results?
Some people report seeing results as early as two weeks after their first treatment. However, the best results become apparent after a series of three treatments, each of which takes place two weeks apart.
Can I return to normal activities after treatment?
Procedures require no downtime whatsoever. After treatment, patients can resume their daily activities right away.
How many treatments will I need?
Three treatments applied every two weeks produce the best results. This schedule allows your body to eliminate the affected fat cells from your system, maximizing the procedure’s effectiveness.
Are results long-lasting?
The treated fat cells do not grow back. However, other fat cells can still increase in size. After treatment, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle to preserve its effects.
Where does the fat go?
Once UltraShape destroys the fat cells, the patient’s liver processes them. The body then eliminates the waste naturally.
What makes UltraShape different from other treatments?
Most fat-reduction procedures kill fat cells by heating or freezing them. Such treatments typically cause discomfort, inflict marks, and take up to three months to see measurable results. UltraShape®, however, leaves no visible signs, causes no pain, and achieves results as early as two weeks.
How much does UltraShape cost?
Costs vary depending on region and the doctor providing the procedure. Although three sessions are recommended, your doctor will ultimately determine the optimal number of treatments.
