The Truth About Fat, Part 2: VASERshape FAQ

In Part 1 of our Truth About Fat series, we revealed facts about fat. If you have a significant amount of weight to lose, we recommend the Sylvana hCG Weight Loss Program, eating right for your blood type, or a diet and exercise program developed by a nutritionist. But what about you ladies and gentlemen who are already in good shape, eat well, and don’t fluctuate—but still suffer from stubborn pockets of body fat?

The VASERshape body sculpting treatment uses ultrasound technology that generates heat to melt the contents of fat cells, for a firmer and leaner look. Unlike other body sculpting treatments, the fat cells are not completely removed and the treatment is non-invasive. Intrigued, but want to know more? We compiled a list of VASERshape FAQs to help you determine whether VASER is right for you! If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call!

VASERshape Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How does VASERshape work?

A: The VASERshape uses dual head ultrasound to target the unwanted fat directly underneath the skin. The ultrasound waves produce a "cavitational

effect" over the tissue to promote fat loss. This means that the variable pressure of the ultrasound produces microbubbles that disrupt the fat cells.

It only attacks the unwanted fat deposit, leaving the adjacent structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue intact.

Q. How does the body get rid of the fat after a VASERshape treatment?

A: VASERshape's unique ultrasound treatment breaks the membranes of the fat cells and the fat cells burst. The content of the fat cells are then

transported through the vascular and lymphatic system to the liver. The liver then processes this fat through the natural metabolic process to

eliminate it from the body. This elimination is assisted by the lymphatic drainage handpiece on the VASERshape.

Q: What makes the VASERshape treatment so unique?

A: VASERshape is noninvasive and reduces the size of the treated areas

without anesthesia and surgery. It is safe because the surrounding blood

vessels, nerves and connective tissues are not damaged. The treatment has no

unpleasant side effects or after effects. It is effective because the fat

reduction is visible, sometimes immediately after a treatment, and it is


A: Mostly any person who is interested in reducing unwanted fat. To insure

that you are a suitable candidate a consultation is required. VASERShape was

developed to help men and women who have a desire to reduce body fat. The

treatment is not a substitute for regular exercise and healthy eating.

If you suffer from back rolls, no matter how great of shape you’re in, VASER offers visible results!

Q: What body areas can be treated?

A: The treatment can be performed on most areas of the body. The most

popular areas are:

1.Upper and lower abdomen

2.Flanks/Love Handles

3.Outer thighs/ "saddle bags")

4.Inner Thighs

5.Upper Arms



8.Lower Legs (contouring calf lines)

Smooth problem areas such as love handles or the abdomen.

Q: How long is a treatment and how often should they be repeated?

A: One session takes less than 1 hour. The treatments are done

approximately once a week for each treatment area. 4 treatments in the minimum recommendation of treatments, while a series of 6 to 10 treatments is usually recommended depending on the size of the treated area.

Q: What kind of care is required after the treatment?

A: There is no downtime. After the treatment, one can immediately return to

his/her daily routine. You should not have any pain or discomfort after the

treatment. It is recommended to maintain adequate hydration before and after

the treatment.

Q: What is the advantage of the VASERshape over diet alone?

A: The approach is different. With a diet, you can reduce non-specific

weight, which is often appropriate. The problem areas, however, you often

cannot get rid of with diet alone. Therefore, VASERshape is the solution. It

selectively removes stubborn fat deposits, thus, giving you a better body

Q: What should I expect during a VASERshape treatment and what does it feel like?

A: We will first assess your body to discuss the treatment with you to make

sure you are a good candidate for VASERshape. We will then treat the desired

area with the dual-head ultrasound hand piece, and you will feel a warming

of the skin in the area being treated. We will monitor your skin throughout

the treatment, checking for mild redness and to monitor the skin


Q: Are the results permanent after the VASERshape treatment?

A. The fat cells that have been treated with VASERshape are gone. The

reduction in fat should be long-lasting as long as one maintains a healthy

diet and lifestyle and does not gain any significant weight.
