Dr. Michael Gold introduces the first and only FDA-cleared, non-surgical procedure that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound for permanent fat destruction into his practice. UltraShape Power is non-invasive body shaping procedure that features no incisions, no anesthesia, and no downtime! Unlike other fat reduction procedures that heat or freeze fat, UltraShape Power is painless; leaves no signs of treatment; and destroys the fat, that despite your best efforts, is resistant to diet and exercise.
The Science Behind UltraShape Power
UltraShape Power is an advanced ultrasound body shaping treatment that uses gentle, focused ultrasound energy to shake the walls of fat cells at a rate of 200,000 per second. At this speed, the brain cannot process the vibrations, which results in a pain-free experience. Because the fat cell membrane cannot handle this level of vibration, the cells burst and the fat is released into the body in the form of triglycerides. Those triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. Meanwhile, the surrounding tissue, nerves, and muscles are left completely unharmed.
There are two major types of fat in the human body:
Visceral fat lies under the abdominal wall and surrounds your organs. This type of fat can be dangerous if its levels are too high, but can be managed with proper diet and exercise.
Subcutaneous fat that forms under the surface of the skin, and is commonly called the fat you can pinch. We are all born with a certain number of subcutaneous fat cells. This layer of fat is resistant to diet and exercise, and can only be eliminated through invasive liposuction or a non-invasive laser such as UltraShape Power. No level of diet and exercise will eliminate the “inch you can pinch.”
Who’s a Good Candidate for UltraShape Power?
The ideal UltraShape Power candidate has a body mass index (BMI) 30 or less and can pinch an inch of soft fat around their abdomen. UltraShape Power goes after the stubborn fat from genetically acquired “problem areas.” We tell our patients in order to obtain best results, they must maintain a healthy diet, follow an exercise regime, and have a high water intake. UltraShape Power is not used for major weight loss. Dr. Gold will perform a full consultation to ensure your candidacy for this treatment.
- UltraShape Power has the highest fat reduction percentage of any non-invasive procedure: 32% with UltraShape Power vs. 23% with other non-invasive laser procedures
- Three treatments spaced two weeks apart
- UltraShape Power is a painless and relaxing experience
- There is no soreness or numbness after treatment
- No downtime, most treatments take 30-45 minutes
After you, Dr. Gold, or his staff determine the exact treatment area, a specially designed belt will be wrapped around your abdomen and a soothing ultrasound gel will be applied to your skin. A trained UltraShape Power technician will glide the transducer over the treatment area, gently delivering virtually painless ultrasound pulses that will destroy fat cells permanently.
