Patients of ANew Aesthetic Medical Center in Minneapolis are seeing impressive results in non-surgical body shaping and cellulite reduction with the VASER Shape system, says Dr. Hagstrom.
Online PR News – 06-January-2012 – – Minneapolis, MN - Non-surgical body contouring has gone high-tech with the VASER Shape device, according to Dr. Vicky Hagstrom, Medical Director of Anew Aesthetic Medical Center. The technology uses ultrasound in a non-invasive treatment that reduces fat and inches without pain. Dr. Hagstrom says it is effective for treating many specific areas of the body. “For non-invasive fat melting, body contouring, and skin tightening, nothing has wowed us like our new VASERshape! We’re seeing jaw-dropping results in cellulite reduction as well,” she says.
“VASER Shape is different than previous fat reduction technologies because it uses two ultrasound heads that are positioned next to each other, with ultrasound energy converging like a “V” below the surface of the skin,” says Dr. Hagstrom. “After the fat has been disrupted, it is absorbed by the body. VASER Shape treatments include zonal massage to drain away excess toxins and fats, working with the body’s lymphatic system to increase local blood circulation.”
Most patients will see immediate results with VASER Shape. "For best results, a series of 4 to 7 treatments are recommended," says Dr. Hagstrom. "The speed of the results varies depending on the patient, and after the initial treatments are completed no additional follow-ups are usually needed."
"VASER Shape is designed for effective non-surgical body contouring and can be used to reduce unwanted fat from common problem areas including: inner & outer thighs, love handles, the abdomen & upper and lower back," says Dr. Hagstrom.
Dr. Hagstrom describes one patient’s experience: “M.B. is a 58 year-old female, who has been maintaining ideal body weight through diet and exercise for several years. A year ago, she consulted with a plastic surgeon to discuss liposuction for abdominal contouring.. She elected not to have the procedure, because of the need for antibiotic and narcotic use, post-op recovery, high cost, risks and recovery time.
"When VASER Shape became available, the patient received the first treatment on her abdomen on 10/17/11. To date, she has received 3 total treatments. So far, her waistline has decreased 2.5 inches and her hips have decreased 1.75 inches."

“You just can’t believe it. It all came together, smaller waist, sculpted figure, and a smoother back" says M.B. "I’m not perfect but I’m very happy and pleased with the results. My clothes are a lot looser, in fact I dropped a size. I would do this again in a heart beat. Dr. Vicky and (her staff) made me feel very at ease and comfortable during the procedure. And best of all, no downtime, no cutting, no drugs. I certainly would recommend this to anyone.”
“I am impressed with the “shrink wrap” effect of VASER Shape,” says Dr. Hagstrom. Not only does it target and reduce the layer of fat, but it improves the tone and elasticity of the skin, and gives the skin a more youthful appearance. This makes VASER Shape an ideal treatment for the mature body which most often has the dual issues of pockets of fat and lax skin at the same time.”
Dr. Hagstrom says that she sees many women who have had previous invasive procedures, most frequently abdominal liposuction & tummy tucks. “Several years after their procedures, many women experience a redistribution of fat accumulation, usually in the upper trunk/breasts or buttocks, resulting in a distorted body silhouette. The VASER Shape works well to help smooth out and normalize those distorted bulges.”
