No matter how many sit-ups we do, it seems nearly impossible to achieve a sculpted abdomen. That little belly bulge, often known as a muffin top, can be extremely frustrating for both men and women. It can affect the clothing we wear and the activities we choose to participate in. But, there is hope!
At Laser Skin Care Center, we offer a variety of solutions for body contouring ranging from surgical to completely non-invasive. Our goal is to help you achieve the results you want with as little downtime as possible for your individual needs. That’s why our go-to treatment for mild-to-moderate muffin top is non-surgical UltraShape Power treatments.
How Does UltraShape Power Work?
UltraShape Power uses gentle ultrasound technology to selectively target and break down hard-to-treat fat cells. Surrounding tissue remains unharmed while unwanted muffin-top-causing fat is effectively damaged. With time, your body naturally metabolizes dead fat cells leaving you slimmer around the middle.
What’s the Procedure Like?
Patients love UltraShape Power because the procedure is quick, easy, and painless. During treatment, a specialized handpiece is passed over the treatment several times emitting pulses of ultrasounds wavelengths. There’s no need for any topical anesthetic, and in most cases, you’ll be in and out of the office in less than an hour.
Side effects are rare but can include slight redness or swelling. UltraShape Power is a no-downtime procedure. You’ll be able to get back to your normal activities immediately following treatment without restrictions. Treatments are spaced approximately 2-weeks apart for an optimal outcome.

When Will I See Results?
Visible results can be seen as quickly as 2-weeks after your initial UltraShape Power treatment. Your body will continue to expel dead fat cells for up to 3-6 months. Most patients need about 3-sessions to address moderate belly fat. You can expect to take 1-3 inches off of your waistline after a series of non-invasive UltraShape Power treatments.
UltraShape Power is a fat-reduction technique. Unlike traditional weight loss, fat cells are completely removed from the body rather than reduced in size. Even with fluctuations in weight, new fat cells are typically more evenly dispersed instead of isolated in a single location. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime can prevent the need for future treatments down the line.
Is UltraShape Power Right for Me?
The ideal candidate for UltraShape Power is one who is bothered by unwanted belly fat but isn’t quite ready for a surgical procedure. Patients should be in otherwise good general health and within 30-pounds of their desired weight. Non-smokers with realistic expectations tend to have the best outcome with cosmetic procedures.
At the time of your in-person consult, your body contouring specialist will assess your concerns and customize a treatment plan to help you reach your goals.
