Banish cellulite dimples and restore your contoured body with innovative, no-downtime VASER® Shape
Dimples are cute on your face but not so cute on your thighs or backside. Likewise, some pockets of fat are incredibly stubborn. Have you noticed that your abdomen still looks the same, no matter how many hours you spend in the gym? Or that your pre-baby thighs, back, upper arms, and hips elude you? Fortunately, Ginsburg Dermatology Center in Birmingham, Alabama, has the answer to both cellulite dimples and stubborn fat pockets in the form of an innovative, multi-dimensional technology called VASER® Shape.
An introduction to VASER® Shape
VASER® Shape is two clinically-proven effective and safe technologies in one. It combines both therapeutic ultrasound technology and zonal lymphatic massage. Ultrasound is delivered via a specialized applicator. Treatment is non-invasive and well-tolerated. Many of our patients describe the treatment as similar to a relaxing hot stone massage or how they feel following a good workout. Ultrasound delivered in a controlled manner and at the appropriate depth as determined by our dermatologist, Dr. Barry Ginsburg, precisely warms the treatment areas and alters the underlying fatty tissue layer.
Likewise, the zonal massage aspect of treatment is also delivered via a specialized handpiece. This part of the process helps open up the lymph nodes and eliminates the need for manual lymphatic massage. The special vacuum handpiece triggers the process of stimulating the lymphatic system. In turn, excess toxins and fats are drained away. So, they can be safely and naturally removed from the body. Additionally, the zonal massage supports increased blood circulation in the localized treatment area.
Treatment is highly personalized, but generally, many patients notice a significant improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin (cellulite) and firmer, sculpted contours after just one visit to our center. It’s recommended to treat the targeted areas once each week. Optimal results may be visible following a three- to five-week regimen. Each area can be treated in around 20 to 30 minutes. The process is non-invasive and does not produce pain. So, there is nothing to recover from. You can go about your day without discomfort or without having to refrain from activities. The massage process can even be combined with other procedures, such as liposuction, to speed up healing.
