Dr. Ginsburg proudly introduces Vaser Shape
Dr. Ginsburg is the first physician in Birmingham to offer this procedure. This procedure is endorsed by Dr. OZ. See what he has to say about this procedure here.
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.
VASER Shape offers two types of treatment: ultrasound therapy and zonal lymphatic massage. Your physician will recommend a specific treatment schedule to achieve the results you’re looking for.
Ultrasound therapy uses two beams of ultrasound energy to warm and treat fatty tissue beneath the skin. This promotes fat cell mobility and 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, 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.
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 encourage faster healing.
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. Following the procedure, patients can resume normal activity without pain or downtime.
