UltraShape® Treatment In Gainesville, FL

If you've tried diet and exercise but still struggle with stubborn fat, then UltraShape® body contouring might be right for you! Many people shed pounds of fat when they first start exercising, only to hit a discouraging plateau in their fat loss journey. This frustrating reality occurs because there are two different types of fat: visceral and subcutaneous. Eating right and exercising helps reduce visceral fat, but subcutaneous fat can be harder to shed. Subcutaneous fat is located directly beneath the skin and is responsible for the "jiggly fat" and cellulite that plagues many of us.

Thankfully, our cosmetic dermatology clinic offers a number of body contouring options that can help you shed those persistent pounds and achieve the body of your dreams. Contact us today to schedule an UltraShape® Power consultation or to learn more about our skin care services for healthier skin that will boost your confidence.

What Is UltraShape®?

UltraShape® Power is the first and only FDA-cleared non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell destruction. Unlike liposuction, UltraShape® Power is non-surgical, which means no incisions, anesthetics, or recovery time. UltraShape® Power is painless for most people and leaves no visible signs of treatment.

Benefits Of UltraShape®

After your UltraShape® treatments, you're left with smooth, contoured results, which can often be seen as quickly as two weeks after the first treatment. In fact, UltraShape® has the highest fat layer thickness reduction of any non-invasive device on the market, resulting in a 32% reduction in the treated area. And there's no downtime for recovery after treatments! You can receive treatment, then go to your yoga class on the very same day! To learn more about the unique benefits of UltraShape® fat reduction, schedule a consultation with one of our cosmetic dermatologists!

How Does UltraShape® Work?

UltraShape® Power employs gentle ultrasound energy to break down fat cells underneath the skin into triglycerides, which are then processed through the liver and eliminated from your body as waste. Unlike weight loss, which can only shrink fat cells, UltraShape® Power destroys fat cells permanently for long-term benefits. Because of the technology, there is no risk of damage to the surrounding tissues, blood vessels, nerves, or muscles.

What Is An UltraShape® Treatment Like?

Because treatments are non-invasive, no incisions or anesthetics are needed. In fact, the treatments are painless and even relaxing. Since each patient and area of concern is unique, you can speak with your cosmetic dermatologist during a consultation to discuss the time for each treatment, how many treatments they suggest for achieving your goals, and what to expect going into each treatment.

UltraShape® VS CoolSculpting®

UltraShape® and CoolSculpting® are FDA-approved, non-invasive, non-surgical treatments that target and destroy stubborn subcutaneous fat. The primary difference between these procedures is the way they eliminate fat. UltraShape® uses focused radiofrequency to destroy fat cells, while CoolSculpting® eliminates fat cells in the body through cryolipolysis, or fat freezing. Here at Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center, we offer both UltraShape® fat removal and CoolSculpting® services!
