Syneron Candela’s Answer to Body Shaping


Syneron Candela’s UltraShape Power is the latest cavitation modality, which uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy to target and destroy fat cells.

The treatment features a single transducer for focused delivery of ultrasound of both large and small areas, allowing for a 32% reduction in fat layer thickness, compared to 19% with CoolSculpting, according to certified dermatologist Stacy Chimento, M.D.

“Patients see results as early as two weeks as opposed to other treatment modalities that can take two to three months to see improvement,” said Chimento.
