Stubborn fat cells resistant to diet and exercise can be frustrating. Even adhering to a strict routine may not produce the noticeable results you hope to achieve. If you’re dissatisfied by the shape of your body but disinterested in the risk and recovery of traditional body sculpting procedures, you may want to consider a non surgical solution to smooth and shape your body. Dr. Sharon Giese offers VASER Shape at her NYC office to reduce unwanted fat cells and smooth the appearance of cellulite.
Unlike liposuction which reduces fat from beneath the skin, VASER Shape reduces fat cells while remaining outside the skin using ultrasound and massage therapy treatments. During your VASER Shape sessions, Dr. Giese will treat the underlying fatty tissue by warming the targeted problem area with two beams of ultrasound energy. The VASER Shape treatment is delivered using a special concave hand piece. Dr. Giese will follow the contour of your body, targeting fatty tissue at a specific depth beneath the skin.
Patients describe the sensation during treatment as equivalent to having a hot stone massage. VASER Shape promotes fat cell mobility and encourages the body to metabolize, drain or reabsorb excess fluids, toxins and fats. By temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite, each VASER Shape treatment inches your body closer toward the smooth results you’ve been aiming to achieve.
