UltraShape Power

What is UltraShape Power and How Does it Work?


UltraShape Power is a non-invasive solution that is clinically-proven for fat reduction and body sculpting. An advancement on the UltraShape procedure so many patients already found highly effective, UltraShape Power is packed with 20% more energy than the previous model. Utilizing focused, pulsed ultrasound technology to specifically target and reduce unwanted fat, body circumference, and improve body shape, UltraShape Power is widely considered the most comfortable, effective treatment of its kind. At Clarkston Dermatology, we offer our patients the most up-to-date UltraShape Power system, which uses vacuum-assisted radio-frequency to enhance and speed up fat reduction as well as skin tightening.


The patented UltraShape Power technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled, pulsed, focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down, while the surrounding, important structures such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.


Who is an UltraShape Power Candidate?


This treatment was created to provide average to slightly overweight men and women a solution for stubborn, unwanted fat that does not respond to proper diet and exercise. UltraShape Power is non-invasive, painless, and has no downtime, making it ideal for those seeking a gentle alternative to surgery. Ideal candidates should have a BMI less than 30 as this treatment is not designed for substantial fat reduction, rather to help you battle those stubborn spots that just won’t budge.


Targeted Treatment Areas


UltraShape Power is designed for focus on the abdomen, flanks (love handles), and thighs (saddle bags).


What are the Expected Results – Does UltraShape Power work?


The expected results will present themselves quickly and noticeably – UltraShape Power most definitely works! Clinical results show that in just three treatments, patients see an average of 4 cm reduction in circumference. A three-treatment regimen, with each treatment spaced 2-weeks apart, is recommended to achieve maximum results. As with any non-invasive procedure, the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results and from patient to patient. Just as is the case with liposuction, once fat cells are removed from the treatment area, the results are expected to be long-lasting, as long as you maintain your weight with a healthy diet and exercise.


What Happens to the Fat?


During the UltraShape Power procedure, the fat cells are destroyed. The acoustic waves of energy cause the walls of the fat cells to rupture, leaving the fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, to be broken down and transported to the liver. The fat is then processed through the body’s natural mechanisms and turns into building blocks for energy. The UltraShape Power machine resonates at the specific frequency that most affects fat cells, leaving the surrounding tissue – including blood vessels, connective tissues and nerves – unharmed and protected.
