VASER Shape is a cellulite-reducing technology with a one-two punch. It uses ultrasonic therapy and a special type of massage to smooth out cellulite dimples on the thighs and buttocks.
And, as it does so, VASER Shape also helps re-contour the body.
How it Works
First, the gentle heat from VASER Shape’s high-frequency sound waves warms and redistributes fat cells located about 1 to 2 centimeters beneath the skin’s surface. Then, VASER Shape’s zonal lymphatic massage opens the lymph nodes in the treated area, helping excess toxins and fats drain from the body naturally.
As the excess fat drains away, the skin begins to smooth, lessening that unwanted “cauliflower” surface that’s so characteristic of cellulite.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The VASER Shape procedure is non-invasive. It’s also painless, and, thus, requires no anesthetic.
The procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area you’re having treated. During the ultrasound segment of the procedure, all you’ll feel is the device’s dual-head handpiece on the treated area of your skin and a warming sensation from the sound waves heating up the fat cells. The vacuum-assisted zonal massage—the second segment of the treatment—is often described as being similar to a deep-tissue massage.
There’s no downtime with VASER Shape. You can return to your normal everyday activities immediately after the procedure. The treated area of your skin may appear pinkish for a few hours, but you should not experience any discomfort.
For Best Results
You may notice some results—smoother, tighter skin—immediately after the procedure, but most people need several treatment sessions before results become truly visible.
A typical VASER Shape treatment schedule involves two weekly sessions for three to five weeks: one session of ultrasound/massage and a second session of just zonal massage during each of the weeks. Talk with your doctor about what schedule would work best for you.
VASER Shape’s cellulite results are temporary. The treated fat cells won’t return, but other fat cells may develop in the same area. How long the area remains smoother and tighter will depend on your diet, exercise habits, lifestyle, and other factors. Your doctor will advise you on what results you can reasonably expect from the treatment.
