What Is Body Contouring with Alma vShape Ultra?
The vShape Ultra platform by Alma is a next-generation noninvasive, nonsurgical body contouring treatment that harnesses the power of sound to reduce stubborn unwanted fat in problem areas. Highly-focused targeted ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin to break up fat pockets via shearing which causes the fat cells to rupture, allowing the body to naturally expel them. This can also work to reduce the appearance of cellulite for smoother, more beautiful skin. These body contouring treatments are quick, easy, and comfortable with no downtime. Most patients will see the best results with about 3 – 6 treatments, depending on their body and aesthetic goals. Results typically improve over 3 – 4 months as the treated fat cells are removed naturally by the body.

Fontaine MD Reviews
Great team! Professional and knowledgeable. Made me feel comfortable about asking questions.
I've been working with Dr Fontaine for almost a year and NEVER felt better. I'm 45 and in the best shape of my life. Prior to working with Dr Fontaine, I had struggled for years trying to lose weight. Since starting I've lost 20lbs of fat, added 10lbs of muscle and dropped 11% body fat. This was one of the best decisions I've ever made and I highly recommend Dr Fontaine. The feeling of having someone monitoring every aspect of my health and ensuring that I not only live a long life, but that I'm truly healthy enough to enjoy it, makes all the difference.
My only regret about visiting Dr. Fontaine is that I didn't do it sooner. I didn't realize how bad I felt before until after a few months of treatment. The difference was staggering. I originally went because I felt tired constantly, stopped working out because I wasn't making any progress, felt demotivated, and had a hard time focusing at work. After a few months of balanced hormones, I literally feel like a new person. I wake up with an abundance of energy that lasts throughout the day, my body looks better, my workouts shed body fat and put on muscle more easily than they have in decades, and I feel motivated across every aspect of my career and personal life. It sounds too good to be true, but it's real. If you're a guy and you feel like you've lost something, you should seriously consider visiting and seeing if you can find it again.
Dr. Jim Fontaine is a great guy! I am a 72 year old male who has been seeing him for over a year to improve my wellness and overall health. He has provided supplements that have everything heading in the right direction. I would highly recommend Dr. Fontaine to anyone interested in improving their wellness!
I cannot thank Dr. Fontaine and his terrific team enough. When I went to see him, my overall health was not what I would call "optimal." My initial tests revealed high blood pressure, high cholesterol, low testosterone, high inflammation and my thyroid was sub-optimal. After only three months, everything mentioned above is now either normal or optimal and, the best part is, I feel markedly better. I am early in my health journey and I am grateful to have Dr. Fontaine and his staff as my coaches.

Body Contouring FAQs
How does ultrasound get rid of fat?
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.
What areas can be treated with vShape Ultra?
- Bra fat area
- Just about anywhere you can pinch fat
What are my choices for body contouring?
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.
How often are the treatments performed?
We usually recommend treatments approximately every two weeks until the series is completed.
Is any preparation required?
We recommend that you drink a lot of water so you are well hydrated for your treatment as this results in the best outcome.
