What is UltraShape Power?
UltraShape Power is a non-surgical device targeting unwanted fat deposits and providing desired body contouring. Through the use of ultrasound energy, UltraShape Power specifically targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. A single procedure is typically half an hour long to an hour, with clients reporting minimal discomfort throughout the procedure. According to FDA: Cryolipolysis (Coolsculping) reduces fat thickness by 22%, 1060 nm laser (SculpSure) reduces fat thickness by 24%, and UltraShape Power reduces abdominal fat layer thickness by an astonishing 32%.
UltraShape Power contains an USculpt transducer, which delivers 50% more energy than its predecessor. The transducer provides a unique deployment of higher acoustic energy, which allows for the precise targeting of fat cells with minimal increase in tissue temperature.
Through focused ultrasound waves, UltraShape Power also causes movement of water surrounding fat cells in certain areas of the body. This mechanism of action causes rapid fluctuations in pressure gradient of the cells, disrupting the cell walls of the targeted fat. Such pressure eventually results in the destruction of the targeted fat cells.
Post-treatment, the damaged fat cell releases the fat to be excreted from the body through natural elimination mechanisms. We encourage avoiding alcohol consumption for at least a couple of days post-treatment as there is a potential of delaying fat excretion. Lifestyle is also a crucial factor; the client should follow a healthy diet and engage in daily movement in order to reduce the likelihood of fat reabsorption.
UltraShape vs UltraShape Power
The efficacy with 3 sessions of UltraShape is between 15-17%, while that for UltrasShape power is around 32%. Even from the two weeks mark, the inch loss is much more prominent.
Areas Treatable by UltraShape Power
UltraShape Power can be utilized to accurately target particular body areas, which include:
UltraShape Power vs. Coolsculpting
Studies have shown that UltraShape Power can reduce fat deposits by approximately 32%. For optimal results, the client should carefully follow the aftercare instructions provided.
The UltraShape Power is typically preferred over Coolsculpting which freezes the fat cell. This is because UltraShape Power may provide more natural looking results.
The efficacy of the machines should also be considered: Coolsculpting could only offer up to 22% fat reduction. The majority of clients express minimal discomfort with UltraShape Power. In contrast, Coolsculpting carries adverse effects of bruising, swelling of the treated area, and tenderness.
UltraShape Power vs. CoolSculpting & SculpSure: Who wins?
Stubborn fat can be almost impossible to remove with diet and exercise alone. A little help can go a long way. You have many options when it comes to body contouring procedures. So how to choose?
How Do They Work?
CoolSculpting, UltraShape Power, and SculpSure are FDA-approved treatments for non-surgical body contouring and fat removal. CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells, SculpSure works by heating fat cells, and UltraShape Power uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell removal.
Treatment and Recovery Time
CoolSculpting treatment takes between two to six hours. SculpSure treatments take approximately half an hour, UltraShape Power takes about half an hour to an hour.
CoolSculpting and SculpSure patients may experience mild discomfort during and after treatment. UltraShape Power procedures are more comfortable and patients report no pain or downtime post-treatment.
Patients typically see results in two to four weeks with UltraShape Power, compared to several months with CoolSculpting. SculpSure takes about 6 weeks to see changes.
At Laser Medical Clinic, we are proud to offer UltraShape Power. UltraShape Power is proven to have more pronounced and faster results compared to other body contouring procedures.
UltraShape Power vs. Surgical Liposuction
Liposuction may provide the most prominent results, however it is an invasive procedure which removes bulk fat from various areas of the body to contour and shape. There is a 2-3 week recovery time involved, with the final results appearing within 6 months.
There is high risk of infection, complications and uneven fat removal which can leave the client physically distorted. On the other hand, UltraShape Power is a non-surgical alternative that provides similar but more natural looking results. Natural, meaning more similar to the process of natural fat loss, as the fat melts away over 1-2 months.
