Ultrashape for Arms and Double Chin?

Can you get Ultrashape treatment done on areas other than stomach and thigh? I was wondering if people can get it done on a double chin or chubby arms for example and are there any risks associated with ultrashape treatment?

UltraShape for Reducing Arm Fat

UltraShape now has a smaller transducer that can be used to decrease areas of fat that involve the arms, thighs and even "bra fat".  The larger transducer is typically used to decrease fat of the abdomen and hips.  At the present time UltraShpae can not be used to treat chin - neck fat.

UltraShape for the arms

In Canada, we have the new smaller transducer that can effectively treat fat on the arms.  It cannot treat under the chin since even the small transducer is too large for that area.

UltraShape Treatment Areas

Currently, UltraShape is not FDA-Approved to treat fat under the chin or on the arms. There are other non-surgical fat reduction and body contouring treatments available that are more suitable for these areas of the body, such as Ultherapy and CoolSculpting.

Hello Dave,

Ultrashape cannot be performed on the chin, due to treatment depth and transducer size, but Ultherapy would be a good none-surgical option to help tighten and reduce a double chin. As for the arms it is possible to treat with Ultrashape on the inner arm/back of the arm but this technique is relatively new and the results will vary depending on patient response. Make sure that the medical clinic that you are dealing with has experience with this technique.
