Vaser Shape: Pain-Free Cellulite Removal

Vaser Shape offers visible body shaping results in weekly ultrasonic and massage therapy sessions by reducing the appearance of cellulite and increasing local blood circulation.

It is a non-invasive ultrasound device that will smooth and shape your body. Great to have before an event because there is no down time. It will feel like you worked out after you have it done! It does not hurt, and feels like a hot stone massage. Treatments are usually 1 week apart and we recommend 3 treatments for full effect.

Vaser Shape offers two types of treatment: ultrasound therapy and zonal lymphatic massage. Dr. Ginsburg will recommend a specific treatment schedule to achieve the results you’re looking for.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy uses two beams of ultrasound energy to warm and treat fatty tissue beneath the skin. This promotes fat cell mobility and also encourages the body to metabolize, drain or reabsorb excess fluids.

The treatment is delivered using a special concave handpiece. The physician follows the contour of the patient’s body, while targeting fatty tissue at a specific depth beneath the skin. Patients report feeling a gentle warming of the skin accompanied by a feeling similar to a deep tissue massage. So this is great for patients seeking a relaxing treatment.

Zonal Lymphatic Massage

Zonal lymphatic massage is recommended for all VASER Shape patients immediately following ultrasound treatments. This vacuum-assisted massage helps to:

  • Open the lymph nodes
  • Help the body drain off excess toxins and fats
  • Increase local blood circulation to the treatment site

Zonal massage is gentle enough to be used after liposuction to also encourage faster healing.

Treatment Time

Dr. Ginsburg will prescribe treatments based on your body type and effect you’re hoping to achieve. Typically, a treatment schedule will include:

  • One combined ultrasound and massage treatment per week (20-30 minutes per body area)
  • One zonal massage session per week
  • A total treatment regimen of three to five weeks


Physicians report that many patients notice significant improvement after the first session, while other may require a follow up session. Following the procedure, patients can resume normal activity without pain or downtime. As a result, Vaser shape may be right for you
