The Science Behind the Art
VASER Shape achieves noticeable results without surgery by combining ultrasound and massage therapy that treats fatty tissue underneath the skin.
The VASER Shape is an exciting alternative to conventional or even laser-assisted liposuction because it is completely non-invasive. Using two ultrasound heads positioned next to each other, energy is converged in a V-like manner and delivered to the fatty tissue below.
By doing this, half the energy is transmitted through the skin at one point and is then doubled when the beams come together in the fatty tissue beneath. Once they do, fat cells are disrupted and made leaky. Their contents are then harmlessly absorbed by your body over the next few days to weeks. For many patients, this seemingly basic treatment has removed as much as an inch from their waistline per treatment. VASER Shape is shown as one of the most effective methods for treating cellulite.
Most doctors are recommending anywhere from 3-5 VASER Shape treatments although some results may be seen immediately. VASER Shape treatment sessions are virtually painless, last anywhere from 30-45 minutes (depending upon the number of areas treated), and have been compared to a hot stone massage.
Cost of the procedure is dependent upon the number of areas treated and the number of sessions required. As with any other body contouring procedure, best results are achieved when you combine VASER Shape with appropriate diet and exercise.
