VASER Shape is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and give the body a firmer appearance.

It can enhance virtually any problem area, including the:

  • Back
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Arms


  • Temporarily minimize the appearance of cellulite
  • Tighten skin and promote collagen production
  • Smooth and reshape your body contour
  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce inches


VASER Shape uses two ultrasound heads to deliver safe and time-proven ultrasound energy beneath the surface of the skin.

This process breaks down the membranes of the unwanted fat cells until they shrink and your body can naturally metabolize the contents of the fat cell while leaving the fat cell still intact.


The typical VASER Shape appointment takes about one hour to complete for one area. The treatments are done once a week for each target area, and most patients require five to six sessions to achieve their ideal results. There is no downtime associated with VASER Shape, and you will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine right away.

To begin, we will administer ultrasound energy to warm the fatty tissue beneath your skin. While we move the handpiece across your body, you may feel a slight warming sensation similar to that of a deep tissue massage.

Immediately after the ultrasound therapy, you will receive a lymphatic massage. The body’s lymphatic system assists in the removal of toxins, excess fluids and waste. The massage stimulates this system, which helps your body drain unwanted fluids and contents of the fat cells from your targeted problem areas.


Most of our clients see an immediate improvement in their appearance after their first VASER Shape session, with more dramatic and visible results appearing as they progress through the treatment regimen. The typical patient can expect to lose a total of three to four inches once the process is complete.

The contents of the fat cells that were treated with VASER Shape are gone and will not return as long as you drink a lot of water, and maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. As such, your fat reduction benefits should be long-lasting as long as you eat well, exercise often, and avoid future weight fluctuations.

How many Vaser shape treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on your individual goals. In most cases, our La Jolla clients see a visible difference in their bodies within three to five sessions. However, many need between five and six visits to achieve their ideal results.

Is vaser shape safe?

Yes, VASER Shape is a safe and effective procedure that requires no downtime and allows you to resume your normal daily activities immediately.

Am I a candidate?

VASER Shape is a very popular cellulite reduction and body shaping treatment among our San Diego clients. However, it’s not right for every patient. To be considered an ideal candidate, you should be close to your ideal weight and want to address small areas of excess fat and cellulite. It is not an appropriate treatment for individuals who have excess skin or a lot of weight to lose.
