VaserSmooth NYC

VASERsmooth procedure - Before and After
Before and After VASERsmooth

Cellulite is a very common, unsightly condition that affects even the healthiest person. Most often found on the buttocks, upper thighs, and hips, it can be very detrimental to a person’s self-confidence. Though there are many over the counter remedies that promise to help reduce cellulite, they are often ineffective, as cellulite can be very difficult to treat. To truly reduce cellulite, doctors have developed methods of reaching deep within the surface of the skin and removing the causes of cellulite, such as VaserSmooth.

Cellulite is dimpling on the skin and it forms when fat cells enlarge and bulge out through the connective tissues that attach the underside of the skin to the underlying deep tissue and muscle. This causes the connective tissues to contract and pull on the skin, causing dimpling and an uneven skin surface. Because the true cause of cellulite is not the fat cells themselves, but the irregular septae, losing weight or just removing fat will not completely reduce cellulite. Though cellulite can be caused by genetics and appear even in fit people, it is often exacerbated by frequent weight changes, aging, and sun damage, which all negatively affect skin elasticity.

New advances in cosmetic technology have developed surgical approaches which aim to treat the underlying causes of cellulite, releasing the skin and smoothing out its surface. VaserSmooth utilizes ultrasound energy for a three pronged approach. First, it reduces some of the fat which is causing the septae to warp by using ultrasound energy to target and liquefy fat cells. Second, Vaser Smooth seeks to loosen the septae and remove the cause of the dimpling, and third, it uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin, smoothing out its surface. Ultrasound technology is very safe and has been used in the medical community for decades; coupled with VaserSmooth’s minimally invasive approach, this is a very safe cellulite treatment.

VaserSmooth procedures require very little downtime and provide excellent, visible results. It is performed entirely under local anesthesia, not general, which reduces the risk of complications and eliminates the need for a lengthy recovery period. If desired, a sedative may be administered for patient comfort. Tiny incisions are made in the treatment site, and then the local anesthetic is applied. The VaserSmooth wand is inserted into the incisions, and the doctor will guide the wand, melting fat and breaking up the septae, while tightening up loose skin. A bandage is placed, but no stitches are required as the incisions are small enough that they will heal on their own. Patients return to work within 24 hours and their full daily activities within 3 days. Results are permanent, and can be seen in as little as a few weeks, with the most dramatic improvements after 3-6 months.
