VASERshape™ is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and increases local blood circulation. Viable results can be seen after 3 to 5 weeks of ultrasound and massage therapy sessions, though results can be noticeable after just one session.
VASERshape™ combines ultrasound therapy and zonal lymphatic massage. The ultrasound therapy uses 2 beams of ultrasound energy to warm up and treat fatty tissue beneath the skin. Using a special handpiece and following the contours of the patient’s body, the clinician targets fatty tissue at a specific depth beneath the skin. There is no pain involved in this procedure – patients report feeling a gentle warming of the skin accompanied by a feeling similar to a hot stone massage.
