New…Dr. Zimmet Now Offering UltraShape®!
UltraShape® is the first and only FDA cleared non-invasive device aimed at body shaping that involves the use of ultrasound technology. Pulsed, focused ultrasound waves mechanically and selectively destroy unwanted fat cells to achieve the desired body contours. UltraShape® is an advanced solution in cosmetic dermatology for patients who wish to avoid surgery and other invasive treatments for fat reduction.
UltraShape® is designed as a comfortable “walk-in” procedure that can be completed in about 45 minutes. The treatment involves no swelling, bruising or downtime. Patients can achieve effective fat reduction and skin care in targeted areas in a gentle and efficient manner. Dr. Steven Zimmet is a pre-eminent dermatologist providing UltraShape® and other innovative treatments to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding communities.
Proven Body Contouring Technique
UltraShape® has widely accepted by both patients and aesthetic dermatology experts as the treatment of choice among non-invasive fat reduction techniques. At the “Beauty Choice Awards” in 2014 instituted by the New Beauty Magazine, UltraShape® won the “Best Body Contouring Treatment” award.
More than 300,000 UltraShape® procedures have been performed worldwide. The data and feedback analyzed by the company suggests that over 96% of the patients experienced a measurable fat reduction, and 94% of the patients were satisfied with their results. The treatment protocol of UltraShape® can be completed in just four weeks.
Several studies and clinical trials have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of UltraShape®. More than 15 peer reviewed papers and book chapters have been published to support the effectiveness of this procedure. As an experienced dermatologist, Dr. Zimmet receives patients from Austin, TX and nearby locations for UltraShape® and other procedures.
UltraShape® is a non-invasive alternative to reduce localized fat deposits as well as cut down the body circumference to a more desirable level.

How does it Work?
UltraShape® treatment is based on ultrasound energy and makes use of a unique energy delivery system to reach the targeted fat pockets precisely and evenly. The focused beams of ultrasound energy will precisely converge into a limited focal volume, and target only the unwanted subcutaneous fat at a controlled depth. The surrounding healthy tissue and muscle remain unaffected by the process.
The ultrasound energy is delivered in pulses or short bursts, which yields a mechanical non-thermal impact that only targets tissue most vulnerable to mechanical disruption. This allows the muscles, nerves and blood vessels to remain safe and intact during the treatment.
Unlike traditional ultrasound treatments, UltraShape® energy is transmitted in pulses. This enables control over temperature increase (below 0.5 degree Celsius elevation). As a result, fat destruction takes place instantly, selectively, and in a non-thermal manner.
