LOUISVILLE, Colo., March 11 /PRNewswire/ - Preliminary findings from a multi-center clinical study measuring postoperative skin retraction in VASER Lipo patients shows 40% to 60% tightening.
Patients in the study underwent body contouring treatments in one or more body areas with the VASER Lipo System. Skin markings were placed on areas to be treated and measurements have been taken over a 6 month period.
"Physicians have been reporting skin tightening benefits with the VASER Lipo System since the technology was released in 2002," said Dan Goldberger, CEO of Sound Surgical Technologies LLC.
"This study now provides the empirical proof of the clear advantage of using VASER ultrasonic energy in all body contouring procedures."
Most doctors agree that the key to good skin retraction is related to treating the layer of fat directly under the skin.
This allows the physician to effectively sculpt an area and stimulate the dermal collagen resulting in skin tightening.
The precision of the VASER ultrasonic energy allows a physician to safely treat this area to give patients smooth, predictable results.
The VASER Lipo System was designed to provide physicians with a versatile tool to treat all areas of the body, from small procedures in the face and neck, to large volume treatments in the abdomen and back.
VASER ultrasonic energy is able to selectively liquefy fat while preserving important tissue structures vital to natural skin tightening.
By preserving nerves, blood vessels and collagen, patients also experience minimal to no pain and bruising postoperatively allowing for a fast return to normal activities.
