Are you embarrassed about dimply patches of cellulite on your abdomen, back, arms, hips, buttocks or thighs? Vaser Shape has you covered. Developed to be used by itself or in conjunction with Vaser LipoSelection, Vaser Shape smoothes out unsightly lumps and bumps for a tighter, firmer figure. Chicago / Naperville plastic surgery provider Dr. John Bull perfoms Vaser Shape at his practice.
What Is Vaser Shape?
Vaser Shape is a non-invasive procedure that combines ultrasound and massage therapy to reduce the appearance of cellulite around the body. First, the heat of the ultrasound waves warms the connective tissue, redistributes fat and encourages local blood circulation. Then, lymphatic massage helps open the lymph nodes to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid through the body, which flushes away excess fats and toxins. The result is smoother curves and contours — without surgery.
Vaser Shape Treatment Sessions
Vaser Shape treatments are offered on an outpatient basis at our Chicago / Naperville practice. Dr. Bull uses a special handpiece to perform the treatment. Following the contour of your body, he will direct ultrasound energy to target fatty tissue at a specific depth (one to five centimeters below the surface of your skin). This is not painful; you will likely feel a slight warming of your skin, followed by a sensation similar to a deep tissue massage.
After treatment, you will be able to immediately return to your normal routine. Your skin may look pink and feel warm for a few hours; this is due to increased blood circulation in the treatment area, and it will quickly resolve itself.
We recommend scheduling a series of weekly treatments for optimal results. The specific number of sessions depends on the body areas that need to be treated. Many of our patients see a visible improvement in the appearance of cellulite after one session, with more noticeable results after three to five weekly sessions.
Vaser Shape does not require surgery, incisions or anesthesia. It is a non-invasive procedure that can be performed with little to no post-operative downtime.
Vaser Shape is an ideal complement to other types of body sculpting treatment, such as LipoSelection. The combination of ultrasound and massage therapy reduces pain and swelling that can occur after liposuction. The additional reduction of cellulite and improved blood circulation are also perks of combining LipoSelection with Vaser shape.
