Have you always wanted to treat unwanted fat without downtime or surgery? The North Shore Medical Spa is the FIRST on Long Island to offer the newest technology, VASER Shape non-surgical body contouring. This non-surgical treatment uses dual head ultrasound technology to break the fat cell walls, releasing the adipose tissue (body fat), which is then metabolized by the body. VASER Shape does not replace diet and exercise, but it is a less invasive alternative to liposuction. Originally discovered in Europe, VASER Shape is now available in the US.
How does VASER Shape work?
VASER Shape offers visible body shaping results in weekly ultrasonic and massage therapy sessions by temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite and increasing local blood circulation.
VASER Shape offers two types of treatment: ultrasound therapy and zonal lymphatic massage. 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. 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 and Increase local blood circulation to the treatment site.
Following the procedure, patients can resume normal activity without pain or downtime.
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
Prior to your VASER Shape Treatment, we encourage you to hydrate with 1 liter of water the day before your treatment to assist in ridding the body of excess lipids and toxins.
A non-invasive technique that uses heat, generated by laser energy, to stimulate collagen in the skin. This causes a temporary tightening effect. External laser treatments may include a light therapy component.
Pro: Targets surface-level fat.
Con: This technique typically requires six to ten treatments. Treatments must be administered in short bursts to prevent skin discomfort and damage. Results are unpredictable
External Radio Frequency (Thermage®, Accent®)
A non-invasive technique that uses heat, generated by radio frequency energy, to stimulate collagen in the skin, leading to a temporary tightening effect.
Pro: Non-invasive skin tightening treatment.
Con: This technique typically requires six to ten treatments. Results are unpredictable.
Cryolipolysis (Cool Sculpting™)
A non-invasive technique that uses two cooling panels to freeze fat cells, causing them to slowly die and be removed from the body.
Pro: Non-invasive body shaping treatment.
Con: Patients report that the treatment is painful during the procedure and continues to cause discomfort post-treatment. Results are unpredictable.
A non-invasive treatment that employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts and vitamins into the fat layer to break up fatty tissue.
