Here at Dr. Halpern’s Med Spa, there are a number of devices available to treat stubborn areas of unwanted areas of fat such as love handles, saddlebags, or a double chin. Our skilled aesthetician can discuss which procedure will deliver you the best results.

UltraShape® Power

UltraShape® Power is FDA-cleared for non-invasive reduction in abdominal circumference and fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. It gently destroys fat by delivering non-thermal ultrasound energy waves that are:

  • Focused – delivering ultrasound energy to tissue within a precise focal volume at a controlled depth.
  • Pulsed – the mechanical non-thermal effect results in minimal elevation of 0.8°C in treated tissue for a truly comfortable and gentle treatment experience.
  • Selective – precisely targeting fat cells while blood vessels, nerves, and surrounding tissue remain largely unaffected.


VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for cellulite reduction. VelaShape® enables you to successfully achieve a more toned, contoured and well-shaped body in typically 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape® provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.

  • Technology – combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which causes deep heating of the fat cells and connective tissue.
  • What it does – stimulates growth of new collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and overall improvement in skin texture.
  • Results – it is not weight loss but a body contouring device that targets cellulite that diet and exercise cannot reduce.


The Cellfina® System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite—the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.

  • FDA-cleared cellulite treatment that typically takes one treatment that takes less than an hour.
  • Cellulite dimples are marked then the provider delivers a local numbing agent followed by the treatment.
  • Afterwards patients are able to go about their day, but may want to take it easy for up to 24 hours.
