How It Works
The Science Behind the Art
VASER® Shape 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, a physician 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.
