Ultimate Contour is a non-surgical, safe and painless body contouring device. It has two handpieces. One handpiece uses ultrasound energy to break down fat cells in the targeted areas, and the other uses RF energy to stimulate collagen production. Depending on whether fat reduction or skin tightening is the goal, the appropriate hand piece is glided along the area of the body that requires treatment.
Ultimate Contour is unique in that it uses low frequency ultrasound instead of thermal energy to heat or cool the fat cells in order to destroy them. This unique device allows for more precise control in achieving results. It is not unusual to immediately lose up to 1” of fat from your abdomen at your first treatment.
This FDA-cleared device delivers maximum results. Treatments are effective, gentle and pain-free, with no down time. Ultimate Contouring is a fast procedure with treatment time around 15-40 minutes. It can used on the abdomen, love handles, thighs, arms, saddlebags and calves. To achieve successful measurable results with Ultimate Contour, 4-6 treatments to a single area are needed.

For fat reduction, Ultimate Contour is the only FDA cleared low frequency ultrasound device. The low frequency ultrasound sends a disruptive vibration that breaks apart fat cells. Voids and pockets are introduced that mechanically rupture the fat cell membranes. Once disrupted, the contents are eliminated from the body naturally.
For skin tightening, Ultimate Contour uses radio frequency energy to heat the deeper, collagen rich layers of the skin. The applied heat causes collagen to contract, and encourages new collagen and elastin resulting in the reduction of skin laxity, creating smoother skin.
Cellulite is typically driven by genetics, body fat percentage, skin thickness and age. Ultimate Contour is FDA-cleared for the reduction in appearance of cellulite. The treatment targets the deposits of fat under the skin, tightens tissues and increases blood circulation to help reduce the appearance of cellulite over time.
This treatment is geared to any adult wanting to get rid of stubborn fat, cellulite or skin laxity. Patients should be in good overall health and looking to address specific areas of fat.
At your consultation we will review your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate, and will perform an assessment of your tissue to determine the kind of fat deposits you have. Is it fibrous, dense, soft, squishy, etc.? These are the factors that will help us determine the outcome of the treatment. Soft and squishy fat is very manipulable, which makes it easier to create a dramatic effect, while denser fibrous fat presents more of a challenge to manipulate. Age also comes into play. How is the lymphatic system moving to get the fat flushed out of the system? Is it going to be a little more stagnant? This is where hydration is key, and cardio exercise after treatment is highly recommended.
Ultimate Contour low frequency Ultrasound is FDA cleared for abdominal circumference reduction in candidates with a BMI of 25 or greater. Ultimate Contour is not a weight-loss solution and it does not replace traditional methods such as diet and exercise.
Generally, persons with the following conditions are ineligible for the treatment:
Chemotherapy and radiation treatments can make the skin very dry, thin and vulnerable due to the rapid dying of cell tissue. During and up to one year after completing all oncology medical treatments, only gentle hydrating and restorative treatments can be performed on the skin surface. This would disqualify almost all the services of the Renaissance Medispa and the Laser Institute of Wisconsin™. If you have concerns, please address them with your medical provider. It is always best to err on the side of caution in treating compromised skin.
The best way to know if you are a good candidate for Ultimate Contour is to schedule a complimentary consultation with FVPS or to call the Laser Institute of Wisconsin™ created by FVPS at (920) 233-1540.
Ultimate Contour treatment at FVPS is an in-office procedure, which does not require any pre-treatment, anesthesia, numbing, or downtime. Prior to the treatment, we measure and then mark the treatment area. Photos are taken.
A typical abdomen will be segmented into 4 quadrants or treatment areas. Then gel or lotion is applied to lubricate the area and to improve energy absorption. A hand piece will then be applied the skin, working across the treatment area. Patients may experience redness of the skin, but typically that disappears within a few hours. Patients will hear an internal ringing sound during the application of the ultrasound energy. The ultrasound or radiofrequency is transmitted into the tissues, which destroys the fat or deeply stimulates collagen production depending on the handpiece used. The session will take 30-40 minutes depending on the treatment areas. Radiofrequency treatments take 10-15 minutes per treatment area.
Although patients will see fat reduction from the first treatment, best results are usually achieved with 4-6 treatments performed 1-2 weeks apart.
Read about Julie’s experience with the Medispa and other real patient stories in the Real Patient Stories section of our website. Julie’s interest in the Medispa started simply with eyelash tinting. With a Visia skin complexion analysis, Julie was able to see where and how she could improve. Her husband and we agree she looks radiant.
There is no recovery or downtime period after painless Ultimate Contour treatments. Patients can return to their usual activities right away. There may have some pinkness for a few hours after the treatment, but there are no other side effects.
Key to seeing results is having your body naturally eliminate the treated fat. There are things you can do which help ensure and accelerate the process, and things you need to avoid so that you are not hindering the process.
We love to see the smiles on our patients' faces when they look and feel their best. See the results for yourself.Photo Gallery Request a Consultation
For fat loss, you may start to see changes immediately following the treatment. Depending on the type of fat, some patients see a full inch reduction after just one session. However, the full effects typically take 6-8 weeks from the first treatment for the body to fully process the destroyed fat cells. Best results are based on multiple treatments in a single area of the body. We recommend a series of 4 treatments for BMI’s <28, and a series of 6 treatments for BMI’s >28. Treatment sessions are spaced 1-2 weeks apart.
For skin tightening and cellulite, it typically takes a month or more to see results as the body needs time for collagen and elastin growth and remodeling to take effect. And as with fat loss, multiple treatments are generally required to achieve desired results.
Many patients opt for touch-up treatments once or twice per year. Maintaining a balanced diet, healthy lifestyle, and regular exercise program is the best way to ensure results last as long as possible.
QUESTION: What does Ultimate Contour treatment feel like?
ANSWER: When done correctly, Ultimate Contour is a pain-free and relaxing treatment for patients, who often describe it as similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. Thinner patients are more likely to experience a tingling or “pins and needles” sensation in the treatment area, which goes away with adjusting the energy level. Patients will normally hear a loud internal ringing sound during the procedure. It will not cause any hearing damage. Only the patients can hear the sound. The technician hears only a squeaking sound from the ultrasound lotion. Patients tend to get used to the sound.
QUESTION: How long do the results of Ultimate Contour body contouring last?
ANSWER: Fat reduction results with Ultimate Contour can last a long time when weight is stable and a healthy lifestyle is practiced. This procedure does not destroy fat cells, but releases them from their contents. In this way, cells retain their ability to store fat, so a balanced diet is the most effective way to ensure longer-lasting results. The skin tightening effects can last for 6-12 months, so patients often opt for “touch-ups” once or twice a year.
QUESTION: Is Ultimate Contour safe?
ANSWER: Ultimate Contour is cleared by the FDA for temporary circumference reduction of the abdomen, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. It has been tested in many clinical studies, and there are very few risks associated with the procedure.
QUESTION: Can I combine Ultimate Contour with other aesthetic treatments?
ANSWER: One of the many advantages of Ultimate Contour therapy is that it is flexible and adaptable to your unique aesthetic needs. You can combine it with other body contouring treatments and skin rejuvenation treatments as part of a treatment plan customized just for you.
