Spa-Like Treatments, Noticeable Results
The right curves and contours can turn heads and raise
eyebrows. Unfortunately, many of us also have cellulite —
those extra dimples when we wear our short shorts, for
instance. The appearance of cellulite can be uneven and
Thanks to VASER Shape, there's a non-surgical solution to
smooth and shape your body. By temporarily reducing the
appearance of cellulite, each VASER Shape treatment gets you
closer to the smooth body you want.
VASER Shape uses ultrasound and massage therapy treatments to
warm the targeted problem area and treat the underlying fatty
tissue. It even promotes the metabolism and drainage of excess
toxins and fats.
Companion to VASER Lipo®
VASER Shape is often recommended in conjunction with
Lipo (or any other body sculpting treatment) to:
Reduce post-operative pain
Promote faster recovery (by
improving local circulation)
Shape and smooth treated
Patients typically see better results week-over-week when
receiving VASER Shape treatments than when receiving
|How It Works - The Science Behind
VASER® Shape achieves noticeable results without surgery. The key?
Combined ultrasound and massage therapy that treats fatty tissue
underneath the skin.
Ultrasound diathermy uses high frequency sound waves to
generate localized heat beneath the surface of the skin. VASER
Shape achieves this effect with a special handpiece that
delivers two overlapping beams of ultrasound energy.
By moving the handpiece over a patient's body, a physician can
treat the tissue layer that is one to five centimeters below
the surface of the skin.
Heat produced by ultrasound diathermy creates a "micromassage"
effect on the fat cells. By warming the connective tissue,
redistributing fat and encouraging blood circulation, VASER
Shape temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite to slim
and smooth your body shape.
Zonal Lymphatic Massage
The body's lymphatic system helps to remove toxins, excess
fluids and waste from the body. It does this by moving
unwanted waste particles through the lymph nodes to the blood
stream, where these substances can be filtered out of the
Zonal massage stimulates the lymphatic system to drain away
excess toxins and fats. Used in concert with ultrasound
diathermy, zonal massage can help your body drain and
metabolize unwanted fluids from targeted problem areas.
The lymphatic system helps to
filter toxins and bacteria in the body.
Ultrasound diathermy warms the targeted area and treats the
underlying fatty tissue
Zonal massage helps to increase local blood circulation, open
the lymph nodes and stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid
throughout the body.
to Common Questions
Answers to the most
frequently asked questions concerning VASER Shape treatments.
What is VASER® Shape? How does it differ from other
VASER Shape is a non-invasive ultrasound and massage therapy
treatment that smoothes, firms and shapes the body. VASER
Shape temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite, and
increases local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
The treatment uses ultrasound waves to warm the targeted
problem area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. It then
uses zonal lymphatic massage to drain away excess toxins and
lipids for removal from the body.
Unlike other non-invasive body shaping procedures, VASER Shape
is a comfortable massage-like treatment that only requires
three to five sessions for noticeable results.
What does non-invasive mean?
Non-invasive means no cuts, no incisions, and no surgery.
VASER Shape is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique.
Non-invasive treatments typically have little-to-no recovery
period and few side effects. Results with non-invasive
treatments are typically less dramatic than that achieved with
minimally invasive techniques, like VASER Lipo®.
How does VASER Shape work?
VASER Shape uses high-frequency sound waves for local heat
therapy and zonal massage to drain away excess toxins and
fats. Heat therapy warms the treatment area and creates a
"micromassage" effect on the fat cells. Zonal massage works
with the lymphatic system to drain away excess toxins and
fats, and increase local blood circulation.
Together, these two processes:
Smooth and shape the body by temporarily
reducing the appearance of cellulite
Improve local blood circulation, and
Reduce pain and swelling that can occur
What body areas can be
treated with VASER Shape?
VASER Shape can be used to treat the following areas:
What kinds of results can I
You can expect a temporary reduction in the appearance of
cellulite. Areas treated with VASER Shape appear more smooth
and "natural-looking" than before the treatment.
Where is VASER Shape performed?
VASER Shape is typically performed in an office setting by a
physician or other trained practitioner. VASER Shape does not
require anesthesia of any kind.
How soon will I see my results?
While you may see results after the first treatment, patients
typically see the most visible results after a regimen of
three to five sessions.
Is there a recovery period?
No. Following the procedure, you can resume normal activity
without pain or downtime. Your skin may appear slightly pink
and feel warm after the procedure due to the increased local
blood circulation in the area. This should resolve itself
within a few hours after the treatment.
Is VASER Shape right for me?
Although VASER Shape is recommended for a wide range of
patients, you should be realistic about the kinds of results
you expect from the treatment. We recommend consulting with a
physician to make sure VASER Shape is right for you.
How much does the treatment cost?
VASER Shape requires special equipment and administration by a
trained practitioner. The total cost of your procedure will
vary depending upon the number of body areas treated and the
total number of sessions required to achieve your desired
