Do you have excess fat that simply won’t go away? UltraShape Power is a non-invasive fat reducing procedure that can melt away that fat for you. When it comes to fat reduction, liposuction is usually the obvious choice, but it does come with some downsides, which is why non-invasive options like UltraShape Power have become so popular. But should you get UltraShape Power instead of liposuction.
What is UltraShape Power?
UltraShape Power is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that employs focused, pulsed ultrasound energy to destroy stubborn fat cells. The device selectively targets the subcutaneous fat below the surface of the skin, so it does not harm any of the nearby blood vessels, nerves, or connective tissues.
The abdomen is one area where unwanted fat seems to linger the most, and UltraShape Power is very effective for reducing abdominal fat. However, it is a versatile device that can be adjusted to treat various parts of the body including thighs, arms, and back.
How UltraShape Power works
The transducer head is placed on the target area and the device emits pulsed ultrasound. The acoustic waves then take aim at the fat deposits below the surface of the skin, and the changes in pressure rupture the membrane of the fat cells. Only the fatty deposits are affected by UltraShape Power, because the ultrasound only resonates with the fat cells. The fat cells that are treated are later expelled by the body.
UltraShape Power is a safe, comfortable, virtually painless treatment, with no adverse side-effects. There is no downtime after UltraShape, so it’s possible to have the procedure done and return to your normal activities right away.
Treatment takes between 20-40 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
It typically requires a course of 3 treatments to achieve the desired results. However, this may vary depending on the amount of fat being removed. Sessions are spaced about 2 weeks apart. There will be some improvement within the first few days of treatment, but optimal results won’t be seen until the recommended number of treatments are complete.
In order to ensure the best results, UltraShape Power should be included as part of an overall healthy lifestyle of improved diet and regular exercise.
Should you get UltraShape Power instead of Liposuction?
UltraShape Power may be a good option for you if:
You only need to reduce a few areas of stubborn fat. Although you lose some fat with UltraShape, it is not a weight loss solution. UltraShape Power is designed to reduce pockets of fat that are difficult to remove with diet and exercise. The ideal candidate for UltraShape Power is someone with a BMI of 30 or less. Doctors also advise that you need to have at least an inch of pinchable fat in the targeted area to qualify for treatment.
In clinical trials, participants lost about 3-5 centimeters after treatment with UltraShape Power.
You don’t want any downtime after treatment. UltraShape Power only targets the fatty tissue, which is why there is no undesirable damage to nearby tissue structures. Therefore, there is no downtime after treatment. This makes UltraShape Power ideal for men and women that are not able to take time off work to undergo a surgical procedure. Liposuction is more invasive, so there is generally some swelling, bruising, and soreness, for several days after treatment, so patients have to restrict normal activities.
You prefer non-surgical body contouring. UltraShape Power is a completely non-surgical treatment, so there are none of the complications and risks associated with liposuction surgery. For example, liposuction can occasionally result in bumpy or uneven fat removal results that look distorted.
UltraShape Power is an excellent non-surgical fat removal method for patients that are near their ideal weight, but it is not a replacement for liposuction. Consequently, individuals that have large areas of fat to remove will have to undergo surgical liposuction in order to get the best results.
