Is UltraShape Power used for body contouring?
UltraShape Power is a non-invasive body contouring device that shapes the body using focused ultrasound energy to selectively destroy unwanted fat cells. It can be used to sculpt areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and hips.A series of 3 treatments done at two week intervals is recommended.Most patients see results within 2-3 weeks.

How it works
The UltraShape Power hand piece emits focused ultrasound energy that targets the fat cells below the surface of the skin, without harming the surrounding tissues, blood vessels, and nerves. The low frequency sound waves heat the fat and cause the fat cells to vibrate. The resulting pressure breaks apart the membranes of the fat cells. The cells then release their contents, which are eventually filtered through the body via the lymphatic system.

Although the results of UltraShape Power can vary from patient to patient, the release of the fat cells tightens and reshapes the skin. Most patients experience an average circumferential reduction of 1.3 inches in the treated area. UltraShape Poweralso helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
