However, when you’re losing weight, some tricky areas can leave you wondering what to do to reach your goals. That’s where we come in! This month, we’re talking all about VASER Shape treatment and how it can help you reach your personal finish line for the body you love. Keep reading to learn more!
What is body contouring?
Body contouring has been around for decades, but there are still some misconceptions surrounding these procedures. To put it simply, body contouring is helpful in targeting troublesome areas that haven’t responded to regular diet and exercise. It can:
- Get rid of excess skin
- Eliminate excess fat
- Reshape (or contour) the targeted area
While it doesn’t help you lose weight, having a solution for troubling areas can help you look and feel your best. Here at Dermatology Realm, we offer VASER Shape non-surgical procedures to help you reach your goals! With minimal discomfort and downtime, you’ll be able to address the most common areas of your arms, belly, back, and legs and be back to work in two days.
About the VASER Shape procedure
VASER Shape is a low-frequency ultrasound which treats localized fat and cellulite. A dual-head, focused beam of ultrasound is directed through your skin, which causes fatty cells to implode while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. The lipids and triglycerides that are then released are drained through the lymphatic system.
This process is painless and requires a series of 5 treatments two to three days apart. Your skin will look smoother, and your clothes will fit better after every treatment! Since VASER Shape is a non-invasive treatment, there is no anesthesia required for the procedure and, since it doesn’t harm the surrounding blood vessels, nerves, and tissue aren’t damaged, the process is completely safe!
How long does VASER Shape treatment last?
The most common question we hear from patients in our Germantown office is if their results will be permanent. While the fat cells that are treated with VASER Shape are not gone, the results will be long-lasting with a little maintenance on your part. As long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine, you’ll be able to keep up the results you’ve achieved during the procedure.
Who is a good candidate for VASER Shape?
The best part about this non-surgical procedure is that it can be for anyone! It’s designed for men and women to achieve their desired results and reduce body fat. A consultation with Dr. Baker can help determine if this would be your best option or if another treatment would better help you achieve your desired results.
VASER Shape can be used on:
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Love handles
- Outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Lower legs
In most cases, 5 treatments are recommended to see the best results. Treatments take place once or twice a week and last around one hour.
Preparing for your procedure
The first step in any body contouring procedure is a consultation with Dr. Baker. During this initial appointment, we’ll discuss your goals as well as your medical history and any relevant information. Next, Dr. Baker will conduct an examination of any areas of interest and discuss any options that are available to help you achieve your goals. He’ll go over any potential risks and all of the best ways to maintain your results.
Once you feel comfortable with all of the information, you can decide if VASER Shape is a good fit for you. If you choose to proceed with treatment, there are no pre-treatment requirements! That means we can schedule your procedure for a time that fits your schedule.
