Body Contouring & Cellulite

Mountain View Dermatology & Aesthetics is Tucson’s expert provider of body contouring, body sculpting, fat and cellulite removal services.

In particular, we excel in fat and cellulite removal using advanced VASER® technologies including VASERshape, which is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that relies on ultrasound to eliminate unsightly fat and cellulite.

A beautiful, well-sculpted shape

We can help you look your very best. Even if you’re in good shape overall, there may be some areas of your body that you’d like to have redefined and toned into the ideal form.

Our body contouring and cellulite reduction treatments can help you achieve a beautiful, perfectly-defined body. These treatments are relaxing and effective – The VASERshape process temporarily reduces the presence of cellulite, so your body becomes beautiful and perfectly shaped.

The treatment consists of advanced ultrasound therapy combined with lymphatic massage to quickly improve the appearance of problem areas where fat has accumulated.

The ultrasound energy penetrates to the deepest layer of your skin, which contains the unsightly fat. The energy passes easily through your skin and acts only on the underlying fatty layer. The energy then heats that fatty tissue, draining the lipids out of the fat cells.

Ultrasonic and acoustic energy forces the lipids away from the ruptured fat cells and into the lymphatic system, where they’re quickly drained away. Surrounding tissues such as nerve cells and blood vessels are entirely unaffected.

Drain away unwanted your fat

In combination with the system’s ultrasonic energy, we also use zonal massage by applying a special vacuum hand tool against your skin, to help move the released fat away from the sites in your body where it had accumulated into unsightly fat deposits and cellulite.

Our fat removal and cellulite treatments are entirely non-invasive….. There are no incisions. Each in-office, non-surgical treatment takes only an hour or two, depending on the areas to be treated. Unlike surgery, special diets, or rigorous exercise, body contouring is fast and pain-free, and there’s no downtime.

Best of all, you’ll see noticeable results after only 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Here in Tucson, an increasing number of people, both men and women, are discovering the unique advantages and benefits of our body sculpting treatments.

From which areas can fat be removed?

Our fat-removal and anti-cellulite treatments can be used almost anywhere on the body. The most popular places are:
  • Flanks, including “love handles”
  • Buttocks
  • Lower and upper abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs and “saddle bags”
  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Lower legs and calf lines

Advantages of our body contouring treatments

The advantage of using cellulite removal treatments instead of diet and exercise alone is the fact that diets and exercise can reduce your weight overall, which may be enough, yet they do not directly treat specific problem areas where stubborn fat deposits and cellulite accumulate.

When our ultrasound treatment destroys the fat cells in a certain area, the destruction of those specific fat deposits is thought to be permanent.

Most importantly, by maintaining an appropriate diet and exercise regimen to avoid significant weight gain after your cellulite has been reduced, you can lower the possibility of future fat deposits forming in the treated areas.
