Smooth, Firm & ShapeRelaxing Treatment, Visible Results
VASERshape™ Non-Surgical Cosmetic Improvements
VASERshape uses a combination of ultrasonic therapy and massage to smooth, firm and shape the body by temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite. The procedure targets your problem areas. VASERshape can help your body’s metabolism by increasing blood circulation in the area being treated. It can also reduce the pain and swelling that occurs after liposuction and other surgical procedures.
The best part? VASERshape is completely non-surgical and non-invasive.
Spa-Like Treatments, Noticeable Results
The right curves and contours can turn heads and raise eyebrows. Unfortunately, many of us also have cellulite — those extra dimples when we wear our short shorts, for instance. The appearance of cellulite can be uneven and unsightly.
Thanks to VASERshape, there’s a non-surgical solution to smooth and shape your body. By temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite, each VASERshape treatment gets you closer to the smooth body you want.
VASERshape uses ultrasound and massage therapy treatments to warm the targeted problem area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. It even promotes the metabolism and drainage of excess toxins and fats.
VASERshape is often recommended in conjunction with VASERlipo® to:
- Reduce post-operative pain and swelling
- Promote faster recovery by improving local circulation
- Shape and smooth treated areas
- See better results week-over-week than when receiving liposuction alone
Patients typically see better results week-over-week when receiving VASER Shape treatments than when receiving liposuction alone.
Non-Surgical Ultrasound and Massage TherapyVASER Shape offers visible body shaping results in weekly ultrasonic and massage therapy sessions by temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite and increasing local blood circulation.
Two Types of Non-Invasive Treatment
VASER Shape offers two types of treatment: ultrasound therapy and zonal lymphatic massage. Your physician will recommend a specific treatment schedule to achieve the results you’re looking for.
Ultrasound therapy uses two beams of ultrasound energy to warm and treat fatty tissue beneath the skin. This promotes fat cell mobility and encourages the body to metabolize, drain or reabsorb excess fluids.
The treatment is delivered using a special concave handpiece. The physician follows the contour of the patient’s body, targeting fatty tissue at a specific depth beneath the skin. Patients report feeling a gentle warming of the skin accompanied by a feeling similar to a deep tissue massage.
Zonal Lymphatic Massage
Zonal lymphatic massage is recommended for all VASER Shape patients immediately following ultrasound treatments. This vacuum-assisted massage helps to:
- Open the lymph nodes
- Help the body drain off excess toxins and fats
- Increase local blood circulation to the treatment site
Zonal massage is gentle enough to be used after liposuction to encourage faster healing.
Your physician will prescribe treatments based on your body type and effect you’re hoping to achieve. Typically, a treatment schedule will include:
- One combined ultrasound and massage treatment per week (20-30 minutes per body area)
- One zonal massage session per week
- A total treatment regimen of three to five weeks
Physicians report that many patients notice significant improvement after the first session. Following the procedure, patients can resume normal activity without pain or downtime.
How It Works
The Science Behind the Art VASER®
VASERshape achieves noticeable results without surgery. The key? Combined ultrasound and massage therapy that treats fatty tissue underneath the skin.
What Is Ultrasound Diathermy?
Ultrasound diathermy uses high frequency sound waves to generate localized heat beneath the surface of the skin. VASER Shape achieves this effect with a special handpiece that delivers two overlapping beams of ultrasound energy.
By moving the handpiece over a patient’s body, Dr. Earl can treat the tissue layer that is one to five centimeters below the surface of the skin.
Heat produced by ultrasound diathermy creates a “micromassage” effect on the fat cells. By warming the connective tissue, redistributing fat and encouraging blood circulation, VASER Shape temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite to slim and smooth your body shape.
Zonal Lymphatic Massage
The body’s lymphatic system helps to remove toxins, excess fluids and waste from the body. It does this by moving unwanted waste particles through the lymph nodes to the blood stream, where these substances can be filtered out of the body.
Zonal massage stimulates the lymphatic system to drain away excess toxins and fats. Used in concert with ultrasound diathermy, zonal massage can help your body drain and metabolize unwanted fluids from targeted problem areas.
Compare VASER® Shape to Other Non-Invasive Treatment Options
VASER Shape isn’t the only non-invasive option on the market — but we think it’s the best.
On this page, we’ve made it easy to compare treatments at a glance. Still have questions about VASER Shape? Read our FAQs for answers to the most common questions.
A non-invasive, non-surgical technique that uses high-frequency (1MHz) ultrasound waves to warm the targeted area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. The ultrasound waves are administered externally through the skin. VASER Shape is used in conjunction with zonal lymphatic massage to drain away excess toxins and fats from the body.
Pro: Can affect tissues from one to five centimeters under the skin. Provides a comfortable, massage-like treatment to shape the body. Temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite. Only requires three to five treatments for noticeable results.
Con: New technology has not been widely adopted by cosmetic surgeons throughout the U.S.
Other Ultrasound (UltraShape®)
Another ultrasound body shaping system delivers lower-frequency ultrasound (.2 MHz) to affect surface-level cellulite. These procedures use short, focused, high-intensity pulses to disrupt fat cells.
Pro: Targets specific areas of fat and disrupts fat cells. Only requires three to five treatments for noticeable results.
Con: Can only affect superficial cellulite (.7-1.5 cm below the skin) in relatively small areas. Lacks a lymphatic massage component. Not cleared for use in the United States.
External Laser (VelaShape®, Zerona®, SmoothShapes®)
A non-invasive technique that uses heat generated by laser energy to stimulate collagen in the skin to cause a temporary tightening effect. External laser treatments may include a light therapy component.
Pro: Targets surface-level fat.
Con: This technique typically requires six to ten treatments. Treatments must be administered in short bursts to prevent skin discomfort and damage. Results are unpredictable.
External Radio Frequency (Accent®)
A non-invasive technique that uses heat generated by radio frequency energy to stimulate collagen in the skin to cause a temporary tightening effect.
Pro: Non-invasive skin tightening treatment.
Con: This technique typically requires six to ten treatments. Results are unpredictable.
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive technique that uses two cooling panels to freeze fat cells, causing them to slowly die and be removed from the body.
Pro: Non-invasive body shaping treatment.
Con: It may take more than one treatment to reach desired results. Final results are reached after 12 weeks.
A non-invasive treatment that employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts and vitamins into the fat layer to break up fatty tissue.
Pro: May melt away small areas of fat at the point of injection.
Con: There is no scientific or clinical data to suggest that mesotherapy reduces fat volume and this technique is not FDA approved.
