Stubborn areas of fat can persist despite diet and exercise leaving you with bulges that you are not happy with. Non-invasive body contouring is an alternative to liposuction to reduce the unwanted areas of fat and contour your body to the shape you want. The beauty of these procedures is that there is no downtime. Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine is pleased to offer coolsculpting as well as ultrasound and radio frequency non-invasive body contouring with Alma’s vShape Ultra.

Body Contouring Q&A
If you have areas of unwanted fat that you want to be reduced, your options include coolsculpting, ultrasound with radiofrequency, or surgical liposuction which can help both women and men.
We offer non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring. This has much less risk than surgical liposuction and has no downtime. Coolsculpting accomplishes fat reduction by freezing fat, which kills the fat cells which are then removed by your body.
Our Alma vShape Ultra uses ultrasound waves to kill the fat cells.
The injected hyaluronic acid “plumps” the face back to a more youthful look. There are several different fillers in the product line, each with a different thickness allowing Dr. Fontaine to lift the tissue with some products and fill smaller lines with other products.
This combination of available fillers allows Dr. Fontaine to create a more youthful appearance by softening smile lines, lip lines, and marionette lines and adding volume to the cheekbones. The products contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your skin.
Loss of this substance, as well as fat, as you age causes your face to lose volume and structure and contributes to fine lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm injectable fillers help reverse these effects.
Each injectable gel is specially formulated to treat particular facial areas, such as the following:
- Cheeks - add volume
- Lips - add volume and smooth lines
- Nasolabial folds and “smile lines” (lines between the nose to the corners of the mouth) - minimize lines and folds
- Marionette lines (lines at the corners of the mouth) - minimize lines and folds
- Corners of the mouth - decrease “droop” and frown look
Dr. Fontaine decides whether Juvéderm Ultra XC, Juvéderm Voluma XC, Juvéderm Vollure or Juvéderm Volbella XC is ideal for you, depending on your symptoms and treatment goals.
Our vShape Ultra machine kills fat cells by emitting two different wavelengths of energy, which heat the cells. One wavelength “smashes” the cells and the other wavelength “shakes” the cells. The combination of energy kills the fat cells and the dead cells are removed from your body resulting in decreased fat and an improved contour.
- Bra fat area
- Just about anywhere you can pinch fat
We usually recommend treatments approximately every two weeks until the series is completed.
We recommend that you drink a lot of water so you are well hydrated for your treatment as this results in the best outcome.
