It’s frustrating when you follow a proper, nutritious diet and exercise regularly only to have pockets of stubborn fat that still persist. Maybe you’re at that point now – you’re in good shape but still have some areas of fat that just won’t disappear.
Liposuction has, for years, been the gold standard at reducing fat, but many patients these days are looking for a non-surgical alternative to liposuction because they don’t have the time or patience to deal with the resulting recovery and downtime. Board-certified Honolulu cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Kory Kitagawa understands this. He and the rest of his exceptional staff at Kitagawa Dermatology are body contouring specialists trained to administer a customized treatment plan that gets the fat loss results you want. One of their newest body contouring therapies is UltraShape Power, a highly advanced ultrasound fat reduction treatment.
Let’s take a look at how the new system can benefit you.
What is UltraShape Power?
UltraShape Power is a new ultrasound treatment from Syneron Candela is FDA-approved for fat reduction around your stomach. Its cutting-edge technology is designed to safely and effectively destroy fat using only ultrasound waves.
However, it distinguishes itself from conventional ultrasound therapy in several ways.
One is that it transmits the ultrasound waves in pulses. This allows the practitioner to precisely control the temperature of the device as well as the depth, targeting your subcutaneous fat. This means that the Honolulu body contouring treatments can be tailored to meet your unique needs.
Another is the focused ultrasound energy. With other ultrasound technology that is non-focused, your fat cells cannot be broken down effectively, leaving you with poor results. The UltraShape Power system’s tracking and guiding specifications allow for 3-D mapping of your targeted area, which makes your fat reduction treatment more consistent and less vulnerable to irregularities in your final fat loss results.
What Are the Advantages of UltraShape Power?
The innovative system is an ideal body sculpting and fat reduction procedure because it has several advantages that make it an effective therapy.
The system can be adjusted to meet your needs, regardless of what they are or what other patients want. It’s flexible enough to address pockets of fat nearly anywhere on your body, regardless of shape or size.
By destroying fat cells at a precise depth, UltraShape Power reduces localized deposits of fat without harming or affecting surrounding tissue, which results in more precise body contouring.
Just a few sessions of the ultrasound fat targeting therapy can achieve an average of 32% fat reduction in the targeted area, the highest percentage that can be achieved by any Hawaii body contouring treatment on the market today. It’s especially effective if you’re in good health and don’t have much body fat beyond a few areas of localized fat. However, you may experience different results based on a variety of factors.
Furthermore, the ultrasound technology allows for no body shaping inconsistencies, which neither liposuction nor another liposuction alternative can do. Your body contouring will be even and consistent.
Addresses Various Areas on Your Body
The system is cleared by the FDA to specifically address abdominal fat. However, it’s been found to be safe and effective for the following areas, as well:
- Upper arms
Safe, Non-invasive Technology
The non-invasive nature of the body contouring cosmetic treatment does not use injections, needles, or cannulas, so there’s no worry about incisions or lengthy recovery time.
On top of that, because the concentrated ultrasound is selective enough to target and destroy only fatty cells without touching the surrounding tissue, there are no burns or other skin injuries.
This means virtually no downtime.
Comfortable and Virtually No Side Effects
No anesthesia or even a topical numbing agent is required for treatment. Most Honolulu patients report no discomfort from the body contouring procedure, only a mild warm tingling sensation in the treated area.
How Does UltraShape Power Differ from Other Body Contouring Treatments?
Compared to other treatments, such as cryolipolysis (“fat freezing”) or CO2 laser, UltraShape Power usually reduces fat thickness better and more consistently. It’s also less painful and more comfortable despite being more precise due to the 3-D mapping technology.
What Results Are Expected from UltraShape Power?
Following the UltraShape Power treatment, your body will gradually eliminate the treated fat cells. Therefore, the body contouring final results may not be fully evident for about 6-8 weeks after the session. However, many Honolulu patients notice subtle, visible results within 2-3 weeks after the procedure as the pockets of fat cells slowly dissipate.
The results can be permanent, but it depends on the patient. Patients who continue with a good diet, regular exercise, and other healthy habits in Hawaii can expect more effective, more permanent results than patients who don’t. Learn more about this revolutionary device at Syneron-Candela.com.
