Vaser Shape is a non-surgical procedure that offers two types of treatment: Ultrasound Therapy and Zonal Lymphatic Massage.
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 hand piece. 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.
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.
