Skin Tightening FAQs

VASERsmooth FAQ

What is cellulite and how does VASERsmooth help?

The term cellulite refers to the dimpled appearance of the skin that some people have on areas such as the hips, thighs, and buttocks. This appearance is much more common in women than in men because of differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed in men and women's skin. The lumpiness of cellulite is caused by fat deposits that push and distort the connective tissues beneath skin, leading to the characteristic changes in appearance of the skin. VASERsmooth helps treat cellulite by breaking down the structures that cause these changes in appearance.

How does VASERsmooth work?

VASERsmooth uses ultrasound technology to emulsify fat and break up the structures that cause skin to dimple. The procedure requires very small incisions to place the device beneath the skin, but downtime after the procedure is minimal.

How is VASERsmooth different from liposuction?

VASERsmooth is not liposuction, and so by itself it does not remove fat. Rather, it improves skin irregularities and dimpling on the areas being treated. However, like so many of the procedures offered at Aguirre Specialty Care, VASERsmooth can be planned in conjunction with other body contouring procedures for an all-around great result for patients.

How much does VASERsmooth cost?

The exact cost of VASERsmooth treatment depends on the patient and the number of areas being treated. Schedule a consultation today to learn if VASERsmooth is right for you and what treatment will cost.
