Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - The VASER® Shape is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses ultrasound and massage to smooth and shape your body while temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite. If you are close to your ideal weight, VASER® Shape can reveal a shapelier you and make your clothes fit better. This is a procedure that you can have done at Plastic Surgery Associates .
How does it work?
Unlike other non-invasive body shaping procedures, VASER Shape is a comfortable treatment that feels like a hot-rock massage and lasts about one hour for one area. The treatment drains away excess toxins and fat that are then eliminated from the body. While results are typically seen between three and five treatments, some people see measurable results after one treatment. For best results, treatments are spaced six to 10 days apart.
Is there a recovery period?
No. Following your VASER Shape treatment, you can resume normal activity without pain, downtime or garments. Your skin may appear slightly pink and feel warm after the procedure. This should resolve itself within a few hours after the treatment.
How long will my results last?
Realistic expectations are essential. Be honest with your treatment provider about your goals and expectations concerning your results. The fat reduction should be long-lasting if a healthy diet and lifestyle are maintained without significant weight gain.
Am I a candidate?
While this procedure will smooth, firm and shape your body, it is not a weight loss solution. Both men and women can be treated, though ideal candidates are not morbidly obese.
