DMG Aesthetics’ Dr. Alix Charles is First in Illinois to Offer Breakthrough, FDA-Cleared, Non-Invasive, UltraShape Power™ System for Fat Destruction

November 11, 2016

HINSDALE, Ill.—Alix Charles, M.D., FAAD, a Hinsdale-based, board-certified Dermatologist of DMG Aesthetics is the first physician in the Chicago area to offer UltraShape Power™, a non-surgical, painless treatment recently cleared by the FDA for non-invasive fat cell destruction.

UltraShape Power offers best-in-class reduction in fat layer thickness targeting the stubborn fat that is often hard to lose even for those who eat right and exercise regularly. The UltraShape Power system, developed by leading global aesthetic device company Syneron Candela, is the most widely used non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound to target and instantly destroy fat cells comfortably, resulting in measurable outcomes in as little as two weeks for some patients. 

"We are thrilled to offer the new UltraShape Power to our patients, with patented technology that allows us to precisely deliver ultrasound energy with extraordinary precision to target and destroy stubborn fat cells which are often resistant to diet and exercise, while leaving surrounding nerves and tissue protected," says Charles. "In my experience, UltraShape Power is the most effective fat-reducer. It requires just three treatments, spaced two weeks apart, each taking about half an hour. And since patients don’t experience the discomfort, lumps, bumps or soreness associated with many other treatments, they can go right back to their normal activities without any disruption," he adds.

UltraShape Power's ultrasound energy is applied to the skin in a proprietary pulse structure to ensure effective fat destruction with no damage to surrounding tissue including blood vessels, nerves and muscles, resulting in a safe and comfortable treatment experience. UltraShape Power enables fully customizable treatments to meet the unique needs of every patient and delivers 20% more energy than its predecessor. A recent clinical study with UltraShape Power's USculpt transducer showed a 32% reduction in subcutaneous fat thickness along with a score of 0.7 on a 0-10 pain scale, positioning UltraShape Power as a powerful and virtually pain-free solution for non-invasive fat reduction.
