Vasershape Burned my Skin. Is This Normal? (photo)

I had it done & while getting it done my side would hurt whenever the lady ran the tool over it.I am home now & realized that I have burns on my side. It hurts & stings without touching it. I can see imprints left from the balls. Is this normal? What should I do & what can I do to make it go away? Please let me know. Had I known that it would happen,I would have never got it done. Take note that I am 5'1 108-110lbs. I had my tummy area done to try and help get rid of my pooch.

You should go back and see your treatment provider. It’s quite abnormal to have burns from VASER Shape treatments. As other physicians have mentioned, there is a temperature gauge and a recommended range of temperatures for treatment. I hope that helps.

It is quite uncommon for Vaser Shape to cause skin burn as the device has a real-time temperature reading and there is a protocol to stay under recommended temperature setting. Apply ice compress and contact the center that provided VaserShape treatment.

It's possible to get burned, but rare. I would recommend to go back to the place and make sure you are treated for your burns. You can also seek out a center that specializes in Vasershape. Thank you for your question.
