Ultherapy is Safe
Hi and thank you for your question!
Our Nurse Practitioner has been performing Ultherapy procedures for over 5 years and has never seen or had side effect of melting fat. We perform a high volume of Ultherapy procedures in our practice amongst our 3 Physician Extenders (NP & PA's) and we still have never had any reports of this. We have no concern about this side effect.

Ultherapy -- Safety and Side Effects; IT DOESN'T MELT FAT
Ultherapy does not cause melting
Ultherapy is a skin tightening procedure that works on the muscle and the dermal skin layer. This procedure does NOT target the subcutaneous tissue, which means it will NOT reduce facial fat or “melt” the face. I have never experienced any adverse effects like this and I have performed hundreds of Ultherapy treatments.
