Produced by the makers of Vaser Liposelection, an established technique of ultrasound assisted liposuction, VaserShape is a non-invasive version of the surgical Vaser Liposelection. It also uses ultrasound energy to melt away unwanted fat. In addition, it has a lymphatic massage function that facilitates the drainage of fat away from the treatment area. The ultrasound energy also promotes skin tightening to further improve the body contour. The treatment program requires 5 treatments done once a week. As with Liposonix, a 1 to 2 inch reduction in the waistline is achievable with Vasershape. Each session take about 1 hour to complete. A sensation of deep heat is felt during the treatment, but it is basically not a painful treatment.
For patients who only have lose skin and no excess fat, say in the tummy area, VaserShape has a skin tightening only function. Again, relying on ultrasound energy to tighten the skin, a series of 12 weekly treatments will usually result in a visible improvement.
Finally, VaserShape also offers a cellulite treatment function that reduces the uneven dimpled contour of cellulite through a series of 8 to 12 thirty minute treatment sessions.
