When it comes to effective body contouring, it seems as though there are plenty of options available on the market today.  However, one of the most successful, results-driven options is UltraShape Power – a unique technology that uses ultrasound energy to destroy fat cells without the need for surgery.

So just how effective is it?  Very: in clinical trials, UltraShape Power was shown to destroy up to 32% of fat cells in a given treatment area.  Given that the next-best fat reduction treatment reduces only 24% of fat cells, it’s no wonder more dermatologists and aesthetic experts are excited about offering UltraShape Power for body contouring!

Given how successful UltraShape Power can be for fat reduction, it’s not surprising that many clients are unsure if this treatment comes with any risks or side effects.  Let’s take a look now:

  • Since UltraShape Power is minimally invasive, that means there’s no risk for side effects typically associated with surgical procedures. UltraShape Power uses a small handpiece to deliver ultrasound energy to the desired treatment area; as a result, clients can treat hard-to-target areas like underneath the chin and around the armpits.
  • The most common side effect associated with UltraShape Power is redness at the treatment site. This side effect is due to the heat associated with the delivery of ultrasound energy.  This redness is temporary and tends to disappear a few days after the procedure.
  • Some clients do experience slight skin blistering at the treatment site. An ointment can be applied to the blisters to help encourage healing.  Blistering is also temporary and due to the ultrasound heat energy.

In general, UltraShape Power is one of the safest non-invasive fat reduction treatment on the market today.  Your dermatologist will work with you to help you understand what side effects can be anticipated after the procedure.
