Advanced Ultrasound Body Shaping
Dr. Mark Jewell introduces the first and only FDA-cleared, non-surgical procedure that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound for permanent fat destruction into his practice. UltraShape® Power is non-surgical, which means no incisions, no anesthetics and no downtime. Unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape Power is painless and leaves no unwanted signs of treatment and destroys the fat, that despite your best efforts, is resistant to diet and exercise.
The Science Behind UltraShape Power
UltraShape Power’s gentle ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body and releases that fat in the form of triglycerides. Those triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. Meanwhile, the surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles are left completely unharmed.
- There are two major types of fat in your body: visceral (fat that forms around your organs)
- Subcutaneous (fat that forms under the surface of your skin).
While eating right and working out can help reduce visceral fat, subcutaneous fat can be difficult to lose. UltraShape Power targets and eliminates stubborn (subcutaneous) belly fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise.
Who’s a Good Candidate for UltraShape Power:
The ideal UltraShape Power candidate has a body mass index (BMI) 30 or less and can pinch an inch of soft fat around their abdomen & flanks. UltraShape Power goes after the stubborn fat from genetically acquired “problem areas”. We tell our patients to obtain Best Results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended. UltraShape Power is not recommended for major weight loss.

Contact Dr. Jewell’s office to schedule a consultation and create a customized body contouring plan. If you’re not a good candidate for UltraShape Power Dr. Jewell offers Vaser Liposuction and Tummy tucks for an alternative.
- Three Treatments spaced two weeks apart
- UltraShape Power is a pleasant, painless, relaxing experience
- There’s no soreness or numbness after treatment
- No Downtime, treatment takes less than an hour in most cases
After you and Dr. Jewell determine the exact treatment area, a specially designed belt will be wrapped around your abdomen and a soothing gel will be applied to your skin. A trained UltraShape Power technician will glide the UltraShape Power transducer over the treatment area, gently delivering virtually painless ultrasound pulses that will destroy fat cells permanently. Treatments take an hour or less, so sit back and take it easy as UltraShape takes care of your excess fat.
The fat cells that are treated are destroyed. However, while the treated cells cannot regrow, other neighboring fat cells can increase in size, so—for best results—it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
UltraShape Power FDA Study:
Dr. Jewell was asked by Syneron-Candela to be an investigator for the FDA approved UltraShape Power device study. Dr. Jewell is an innovator, researcher, educator and an expert on ultrasound technological devices.
While there are various ways to decrease the thickness of fat layers within the body, Dr. Jewell believes that ultrasonic energy to disrupt fat offers patients an excellent outcome which is very safe and predictable.
In a recent clinical study, 100% of patient report the treatment as being comfortable.1
