Vaser Shape Treatment Temperature?

Thank you for your question. Vaser shape recommended temperature is around 42-46 degrees. In the right hands and in a good candidate, it has good results. You should seek treatment under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for best results. I hope this helps.

Vaser Shape Temperature

Suzana, the outcomes for treatment can be obtained with a variety of temperature gradients. When we get the temperature between 40 and 44 degree Celcius, we're seeing and measuring results with Vaser Shape. 

Some patients don't heat up right away but ultimately achieve improvements with even a short duration at a temperature over 40 degrees Celcius. We believe that the modulated settings provide the appropriate energy using the ultrasound wavelengths of Vaser shape to stimulate tissue tightening. The tissue tightening comes both from volume reduction from the fat cell as well as direct stimulation of the skin layer. It is conjectured that the myofibroblasts (the muscle fiber containing skin cell) is stimulated to shrink as well with thermal stimulation. Current studies are ongoing to further determine whether this is truly the mechanism of Vaser shape results.

To your health and beauty,
