Most patients see an improvement after just one session, VASER Shape also offers relief from minor muscle aches, pains and spasms, and temporary improvement in local blood circulation as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Q: How long is a treatment and how often should they be repeated?
A: One session takes less than 1 hour. The treatments are done approximately once a week for each treatment area. A series of 6 to 10 treatments is usually recommended depending on the size of the treated area.
Q: What kind of care is required after the treatment?
A: 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 hydration before and after the treatment.
Q: What is the advantage of the VASER Shape over diet alone?
A: The approach is different. With a diet, you can reduce non-specific weight, which is often appropriate. 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.
Q: What should I expect during a VASER Shape treatment and what does it feel like?
A: 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 treatment, checking for mild redness and to monitor the skin temperature.
Q: Are the results permanent after the VASER Shape treatment?
A. The fat cells that have been treated with VASER Shape are gone. 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.
