VASER Shape Ultrasound Diathermy

The VASER Shape features Ultrasound diathermy, (high frequency sound waves similar to the Ultrasound energy used to evaluate areas such as pregnancy, heart valves and gall bladders for decades) to safely generate localized heat beneath the surface of the skin. VASER Shape achieves this affect with a special hand piece that delivers two overlapping beams of ultrasound energy. By moving the hand piece over the target area of the body, our technician treats the fatty tissue layer up to five centimeters below the surface of the skin.

The heat produced by ultrasound diathermy creates a "micro massage" effect on the fat cells. By warming the connective tissue, redistributing fat and enhancing blood circulation, VASER Shape therapy is able to reduce the appearance of fat and cellulite to slim and smooth the body shape. There is no incision made, therefore, no scar. There is no recovery time or disruption of activities, and many people schedule a convenient office visit mid-day and go right back to work.

Patients report a very comfortable treatment experience similar to receiving a warm massage. Unlike a standard massage, however, there is frequently an immediate improvement in the fit of the clothing, tightening of the skin and a smoothing of cellulite! A series of treatments will likely be recommended in order to achieve the desired result unique to each individual, as opposed to traditional liposuction or invasive laser lipo procedures which generally require a lengthy healing time, with VASER Shape, there is No Waiting for Results!

The specialized hand piece allows our operator greater control of treatment and the ability to target the most stubborn areas such as:

  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Flanks / love handles
  • Outer thighs / saddle bags
  • Inner Thighs
  • Upper Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Lower Legs (contouring calf lines)

Q. How does VASER Shape work?

The VASER Shape uses dual head ultrasound to target the unwanted fat directly underneath the skin. The ultrasound waves produce a "cavitational effect" over the tissue to promote fat loss. This means that the variable pressure of the ultrasound produces microbubbles that disrupt the fat cells. It only attacks the unwanted fat deposit, leaving the adjacent structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves and connec-tive tissue intact.

Q. How does the body get rid of the fat after a VASERshape treatment?

VASER Shape's unique ultrasound treatment breaks the membranes of the fat cells and the fat cells burst. The content of the fat cells are then removed through the body's detoxification system and flushed away.

Q. What makes the VASER Shape treatment so unique?

VASER Shape is noninvasive and shrinks the fatty layer of the treated areas without anesthesia and sur-gery. It is safe because the surrounding blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues are not damaged. The treatment is not painful; patients experience a warm sensation and has no unpleasant side effects or after effects. It is effective because the fat reduction is visible, sometimes immediately after a treatment, and it is measurable.

Q. Who can undergo this method?

Mostly any person who is interested in reducing unwanted fat. To insure that you are a suitable candidate a consultation is required. VASER Shape was developed to help men and women who have a desire to reduce body fat. The treatment is not a substitute for regular exercise and healthy eating.

Q. What body areas can be treated?

Mostly any person who is interested in reducing unwanted fat. To insure that you are a suitable candidate a consultation is required. VASER Shape was developed to help men and women who have a desire to reduce body fat. The treatment is not a substitute for regular exercise and healthy eating.

Q. What body areas can be treated?

The treatment can be performed on several areas of the body. The most popular areas are:

  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Outer thighs/"saddle bags"
  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Flanks/Love Handles
  • Inner thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Lower legs (countouring calf lines)

Q. How long is a treatment and how often should they be repeated?

One session takes less than 1 hour. The treatments are done approximately once a week for each treat-ment area. A series of 6 to 10 treatments is usually recommended depending on the size of the treated area and the desired end result.

Q. What kind of care is required after the treatment?

There is no downtime. After the treatment, one can immediately return to his/her daily routine. You should not have any pain or discomfort after the treatment. It is recommended to maintain adequate hy-dration before and after the treatment.

Q. What is the advantage of the VASER Shape over diet alone?

The approach is different. With a diet, you can reduce non-specific weight, which is often appropriate and needed. The problem areas, however, you often cannot get rid of with diet alone. Therefore, VASER-shape is the solution. It selectively removes stubborn fat deposits, thus, giving you a better body contour. In addition, the skin tightens along with the fat reduction, so puckering and sagging improves as well.

Q. What should I expect during a VASER Shape treatment and what does it feel like?

We will first assess your body to discuss the treatment with you to make sure you are a good candidate for VASER Shape. We will then treat the desired area with the dual-head ultrasound hand piece, and you will feel a warming of the skin in the area being treated. We will monitor your skin throughout the treat-ment, achieving and maintaining appropriate treatment temperature through the skin and underlying treated area.

Q. Are the results permanent after the VASER Shape treatment?

The reduction in fat should be long-lasting as long as one maintains a healthy diet and lifestyle and does not gain any significant weight.
