UltraShape Power is the most effective fat destruction technology on the market delivering 32% of fat destruction power to the treated area. It is the non-invasive and comfortable way to remove unwanted fat. No incisions or recovery time due to usage of selective ultrasound technology – only fat cells are broken down while surrounding tissue, blood vessels, nerves are left untouched. The pulsed ultrasound waves produced by UltraShape Power cause fat cells to rupture and the body processes break down and eliminate released fat naturally. Three treatments two weeks apart permanently destroy fat cells and deliver lasting results.
Frequently asked questions
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR ULTRASHAPE POWER?
UltraShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat or genetically acquired problem areas. You should have a BMI under 30 and be able to pinch an inch of soft subcutaneous fat. There are two major types of fat in your body: visceral (fat that forms around your organs) and subcutaneous (fat that forms under the surface of your skin). While eating right and working out can help reduce visceral fat, subcutaneous fat can be difficult to lose. UltraShape targets and eliminates stubborn (subcutaneous) belly fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise.* For best results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended. UltraShape is not recommended for major weight loss.
*There is no guarantee of specific results. Results may vary.
HOW DOES ULTRASHAPE WORK?
Using ultrasound energy, UltraShape is able to target the stubborn fat cells below your skin’s surface, destroying them instantly, so that you can see visible results within two weeks. Because the ultrasound energy is pulsed and focused, UltraShape is able to target the fat cells mechanically, without heating them – while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed. At the Lumiere Laser Center, our technician treats the designated area only once, ensuring a complete and uniform treatment. Once the fat cell membranes are disrupted, the content of the cells is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The fat is then processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.
IS IT SAFE?
UltraShape is FDA cleared for non-invasive abdominal circumferential reduction. It has been shown to be safe in extensive clinical trials, and over 300,000 treatments have been performed worldwide.* At Lumiere Laser Center, UltraShape is also safely and effectively used by our technician to treat stubborn, “pinchable” fat in the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and thighs.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Because fat cells are destroyed, you will see a long-lasting effect without maintenance treatments later on.* Of course, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise, to keep neighboring fat cells from increasing in size.
