Vaser Shape is a non-invasive ultrasound and massage system that uses a combination of ultrasound diathermy (high-frequency sound waves for local heat therapy) and zonal lymphatic massage. Vaser Shape warms the selected area and treats the underlying tissue. This smooths, firms and shapes the body by temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite and increasing blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Vaser Shape can be used as a stand-alone treatment and is a perfect complement to body contouring or liposuction procedures to reduce postoperative pain and swelling. We also frequently combine Vaser Shape wiht EMSCULPT NEO and Ultrashape Power treatments for added skin tightening.

VASER Shape Procedure

The average Vaser Shape session is 45-60 minutes per body area with both an ultrasound and massage handpiece. Treatments are usually scheduled a week apart. Patients typically have 4-5 treatments, though many patients see improvement after the first session.

The treatment is comfortable and there’s no pre-treatment preparation required. You feel a gentle warming of the skin accompanied by a feeling like deep-tissue massage. After the procedure, you can resume normal activity without pain or downtime. Skin may appear slightly pink and feel warm due to increased blood circulation. This resolves itself within a few hours of treatment.

The two Vaser Shape handpieces work in tandem to treat the target area and promote drainage through the lymphatic system.

  • Ultrasound Diathermy – High-frequency sound waves provide heat therapy, warming the treatment area and producing a micro massage to fat cells, encouraging excess fat to escape and temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite.
  • Zonal Massage – The zonal massage handpiece works with the lymphatic system to drain away excess toxins and fats and increase local blood circulation. The handpiece also helps open the lymph nodes pre- and post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Vaser Shape is a non-invasive ultrasound and massage therapy treatment that smooths, firms and shapes the body. The treatment uses dual-head ultrasound technology to break the fat cell wall, releasing body fat which is then metabolized by the body. Vaser Shape differs from traditional liposuction in that there are no incisions, no cutting and no downtime. Like other body contouring procedures, VASER Shape is not a replacement for diet and exercise.

Vaser Shape uses dual-head ultrasound to target unwanted fat directly beneath the skin. It only attacks unwanted fat deposits, leaving adjacent structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue intact. Toxins and fats move to the lymphatic system with the lymphatic draining handpiece and are eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic process.

Together, these two processes smooth and shape the body, improve local blood circulation and reduce the pain and swelling that can occur after traditional liposuction surgery.
