Although it was designed and FDA approved for the abdominal area, it can also be used on the arms, saddlebags and love handles.
How UltraShape Power Works
First it sends pulsed ultrasound 1.5 cm below the skin’s surface. This causes the fluid in between the fat cells to bubble up.
Then implode, rupturing the walls of the fat cells, sending them through the same metabolic pathways that occur during the regular weight loss process.
If you’ve got 1 1/2 minutes, this video sums it up perfectly (you can also read more details in this article):
And it’s virtually painless! Patients rated it 0.7 on a 0 to 10 scale for pain.
The UltraShape Power seems to be the best fat solution on the market with 32% fat cell destruction as compared to 22% for Coolsculpting® and 11% for the Sculpsure®.
For optimal results, Syneron® suggests getting 3 treatments two weeks apart but also adds that you can see a result after the first one.
Before and After UltraShape Power
You can expect the cost to be close to that of the original UltraShape at about $2,500 for a package of 3 treatments.
