VASER® Lipo 101

Table of Contents

The first impression is (almost) everything, which is why looking good is nestled high on the priority list for many. The reasons may vary, but the expectation when it comes to results is common.

One of the most sought-after body treatment is fat reduction and body contouring. Liposuction is a familiar fat treatment that most everyone is familiar with, but have you heard of VASER® Lipo?

What Is VASER® Lipo?

VASER® Lipo (abbreviation of LipoSelection) is an FDA-approved minimally-invasive fat reduction and body sculpting treatment. Being minimally-invasive widens its appeal, especially among those who are seeking a more contoured and better-looking physique.

It is a form of liposuction that uses ultrasonic energy to remove unwanted fat more efficiently.

Difference Between Liposuction And VASER® Lipo

In traditional liposuction, the doctor moves the cannula back and forth under the skin to break up the fat cells and removes them with a vacuum pump. VASER® Lipo uses ultrasound waves to break up the fat in a gentler and less intrusive manner.

VASER® Lipo Is Not A Laser Treatment!


The name might sound like “laser,” but VASER actually stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. The ultrasonic energy used in the treatment is transformed to vibration energy, which is then transmitted to the fat cells by small probes. The fat cells are broken down and mixed with the fluid. Small cannulas are then used to suction and remove this mixture.

The Advantages Of VASER® Lipo

Apart from being minimally-invasive the treatment’s other advantages include:

·       It can be performed under local anaesthetic

·       It has minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort

·       It involves lesser downtime

·       It stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin

The efficacy and advantages of VASER® Lipo do make it a feasible treatment option when it comes to fat reduction and body contouring. However, it is not a weight loss technique or solution for obesity, and it is not recommended for those with excessive or bulging areas of skin.

Do consult your doctor to find out if the treatment is applicable and most importantly, appropriate for your needs. If it is, then you’re on your way to a fitter and better-looking physique that will create a first impression to last for a long time!
