VaserShape FAQ


How does the VaserShape treatment work?

VaserShape gives you a new way to remove unwanted cellulite and fat. It’s a non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses ultrasound to melt unsightly fat that’s deep within your skin.

VaserShape relies on ultrasonic energy combined with local massage to quickly reduce cellulite and fat in areas where they’ve accumulated.

Ultrasound energy penetrates deep into the skin, where accumulations of fat are trapped and may appear as cellulite. The ultrasonic waves heat fatty cells buried deep in your skin. Heating causes those fat cells to burst and release their liquid fat.

The process temporarily mobilizes the fat trapped in your skin and drains it away through the lymphatic system, so you’ll look and feel better. It’s worth noting that the upper layers of your skin aren’t affected by the Vaser treatment, only the fatty deep layer.

How does the fat drain away?

In order to help drain the lipids from fat cells to be disposed through the lymphatic system, we massage treated areas with a high-tech vacuum handpiece tool to speed drainage of your released lipids. Then, the liver processes the fat with natural metabolism and eliminates it from your body.

Why is VaserShape so popular?

Here in Tucson, many people are choosing Vaser treatments for body contouring because there’s no need for surgery or anesthesia. The treatment narrowly targets fat cells, and it doesn’t affect any other tissues.

Best of all, the fat reduction is often quickly visible and measurable.

How long, and how often are treatments?

The first session generally takes one full hour for a particular area. Then, each subsequent session usually takes slightly less than an hour. The number of treatments depends on several factors, including the results you want.

Is there any downtime?

No. There isn’t any special care after the treatment, there’s no pain, and no downtime.

How is Vaser Shape better than exercise and diet alone?

Vaser treatment offers the distinct advantage of removing unsightly fat from the deposits where it has accumulated. And, by maintaining an appropriate exercise and diet regimen you can help keep your body weight and fat levels as low as possible going forward.

Are Vaser results permanent?

Fat cells treated with this technology are thought to be permanently destroyed. Still, in order to reduce new fat cells, you should maintain a good diet and exercise regimen.
