UltraShape Power : Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Don’t Just Shrink Fat Cells, Eliminate Them Permanently!

UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body shaping device that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound technology to mechanically (non-thermally) and selectively destroy fat cells. This makes the entire revolutionary procedure virtually painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. Because the ultrasound technology behind UltraShape is focused specifically on fat cells, you do not have to worry about bruising, swelling, or downtime. You can have your procedure done in about an hour or less and then go about your daily activities as usual! But the best part? You can finally eliminate those “trouble zones” on your body that have been stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise for a shapely, beautiful-contoured physique!

Some areas most commonly treated with UltraShape are:

Love handles
Hips (saddlebags)
 Inner/outer thighs
 Bra line
 Knee fat pads

UltraShape Before & After Photos

Unlike weight loss, which can only shrink fat cells, UltraShape eliminates them permanently. The Ultrashape’s focused, pulsed ultrasound energy is used to selectively remove the fat under your skin (subcutaneous fat). Once you, Dr. Ibegbu, and his team determine the exact areas of treatment, a smoothing gel is applied and the transducer will be glided over the area of treatment to deliver the ultrasound energy in the form of acoustic waves, which focus on the fat cells much like a magnifying glass can focus light. This causes a change in pressure, forming bubbles between the fat cells. These bubbles disrupt the fat cell wall, thereby releasing the fat for the body to reabsorb comfortably and naturally.

What does this all mean? Patients experience little to no pain during and after the procedure and smoother, more contoured results can be seen as quickly as two weeks after your first treatment! Generally, a minimum of 3 treatments are required for significant results and these sessions should be spaced about 2 weeks apart. The UltraShape procedure is described by most patients as being a relaxing and pleasant experience. This procedure is non-surgical so there is no need for incisions, pain medication, or topical or local anesthetic.

UltraShape is not meant for significant weight loss but rather for targeted areas that have been resistant to weight loss by conventional methods of diet and exercise. The UltraShape technology won’t cause you pain or harm surrounding skin, connective tissue, nerves, or muscles. It’s no wonder why clinical studies have shown a 94% satisfaction rate by its patients!

Frequently Ask Questions

If you are interested in fat reduction treatments like UltraShape Power, we would recommend a consultation as a first step. The main reason why some people don’t get great results with non-invasive body contouring is because they are not great candidates for this type of procedure in the first place. Having a consultation with a trained, experienced provider is the best way to determine whether or not you would benefit from UltraShape Power.Generally speaking, good candidates for UltraShape Power are:
male or female, age 18+, in good health
seeking treatment for localized, stubborn fat deposits
We will start your visit by taking a series of photos and measurements in order to track your progress throughout the course of your treatment plan. We will then enter your confidential information into the UltraShape system and begin your treatment. UltraShape Power uses pulsed, focused ultrasound energy, which produces a warming or mild tingling sensation on the skin. Many people even fall asleep during the treatment because it is so relaxing! The length of treatment will depend on the size of the area(s) being treated, but most sessions take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
Side effects are minimal for the vast majority of people. You may notice slight swelling and/or redness in the treatment area, but this is normal and will resolve quickly within hours of treatment. Surrounding nerves and tissues are unaffected by the device, which makes the safety profile of UltraShape Power excellent.There is absolutely no downtime associated with this procedure. You will be able to return to normal activities immediately following your treatment.
The fat cells that are destroyed in each session will be eliminated by your body, you are likely to start seeing some improvements within 10 to 14 days of your first UltraShape Power treatment. Also, UltraShape Power requires a series of three sessions in order to get the best results, so about 12 weeks after your third & final treatment, you will have reached your maximum results. With each subsequent visit the target treatment area will be measured and you will continue to see increased fat reduction.
