vaser shapeDescription: VASER Shape is a non-surgical liposuction alternative that uses ultrasound and massage therapy to smooth, firm and shape the body by reducing localized fat deposits and cellulite that are resistant to diet and exercise.

How it's done: VASER Shape uses a combination of ultrasound heat therapy and lymphatic massage. The heat therapy warms the treatment area and creates a micromassage effect on the fat cells causing them to leak out their stored contents. The lymphatic massage then helps your body drain away these excess fats for removal from the body. While you may see results immediately after the first treatment, patients typically see the most visible results after 3 to 5 sessions. A typical VASER Shape treatment lasts about 30 to 45 minutes and sessions are typically performed weekly.

Complications: Your skin may appear slightly pink and feel warm after the treatment due to increased blood circulation in the treated area, but these side effects should resolve themselves within a few hours.

Recovery: Following the treatment, you can resume your normal activities without pain or downtime.

Cost: $400 to $600 per treatment in one area.
