Own It

ultrashape power review

As you guys know in 2017, I am on the “own it” tour! This year I’m ALL about discussing the beauty maintenance EVERYONE is doing and no one is talking about (especially celebrities).

When I was invited to try UltraShape Power by Dr. Horn’s office here in Chicago my first thought was: “Where was this before my wedding?!” It is honestly the perfect procedure for a bride-to-be, new mommy or really anyone looking to lose a few inches.

Here’s the deal I workout at least 4x/week and consistently eat clean, however I still have “problem” areas that make me self-conscious.

There are two major types of fat: visceral (fat that forms around your organs) and subcutaneous (fat that forms under the surface of your skin). Eating right and working out can help reduce visceral fat but but subcutaneous fat is stubborn and can be difficult to lose.

That’s where UltraShape Power steps in.  It targets and eliminates the stubborn, subcutaneous fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise.

 

Ready to learn more? I got the 411 from Erin, a certified Aesthetician at Dr. Michael Horn’s office, while getting UltraShape Power on my abdomen and flanks:

 

What is UltraShape Power?

UltraShape Power is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure. It’s non-surgical so there’s no anesthesia, incisions or recovery time.

How does UltraShape Power Work?

UltraShape Power uses ultrasound energy to destroy the walls of fat cells in your body.  The body breaks down/processes these destroyed fat cells in the same way it breaks down other fats. The waste is eliminated naturally, after being processed by the liver.  Most importantly the surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles are left completely unharmed.

Is the Procedure Painful?

Not at all. (I felt absolutely NO pain during the procedure. Dare I say it was even relaxing!? There was also no soreness or discomfort after the procedure either. You could literally throw on your clothes and head to the gym, head back to work or grab dinner with friends).

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure takes anywhere from 15-30 minutes per area.

How Many Treatments Are Needed & When Do You See Results?

A series of 3 treatments are needed, each 2 weeks apart. Results can sometimes be seen as quickly as just two weeks after the first treatment.

Who is a candidate for UltraShape Power?

The ideal UltraShape Power candidate has a BMI of 30 or less and can pinch an inch or so of fat around their middle. This procedure is ideal for someone who is relatively in shape and living a healthy lifestyle. This procedure is not for obese or extremely overweight people.

How is UltraShape Power different from other treatments?

UltraShape Power does not use heat or freeze fat which can be painful AND cause side effects like redness, bruising and uneven fat distribution.

What are the risks?

Unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape Power is virtually painless and leaves no unwanted signs of treatment. That means you can hit the doctor’s office then head straight to yoga class – crop top and all.

Special thanks to Erin and Dr. Horn’s office for having me in to try this UltraShape Power treatment! As always, all opinions are my own. I must say, I am SO pleased with the results thus far.  I’ll also plan to do a follow-up with before and after pics if you guys are interested?!

If you have any questions, leave them in a comment below and I’ll get them answered by Dr. Horn’s office!
