Leading manufacturer and distributor of ultrasonic body contouring technoloy, Sound Surgical Technologies, announces the launch of VASER Shape MC1 - a non-invasive ultrasound and massage system. Known for their VASER Lipo System, this device includes both minimally invasive body contouring and non-invasive systems to smooth and shape the body for cellulite reduction.
In May 2010, VASER Shape MC1 was FDA cleared for relief of minor muscle aches, pain and muscle spasms, temporary improvement in local blood circulation, and temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The VASER Shape MC1 can be used as a stand alone procedure, "VASER Shape is an excellent non-invasive option for patients who do not want a surgical procedure," says Dr. Michael Nagy, F.A.C.S., Personal Enhancement Center in Toms River, New Jersey. "Most patients undergo a regimen of 4 to 5 total treatments, and many notice an improvement after just a single session."
This treatment can also be used in conjunction with other body contouring procedures to help reduce postoperative pain and swelling. "This new technology is the perfect complement for existing body contouring and liposuction procedures," says Dr. Paul Zieg, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon at Zieg Plastic Surgery Center in Henderson, KY. "The VASER Shape MC1 System allows physicians to target specific problem areas for maximum results, while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected."
VASER Shape MC1 is based on technology that has been in use outside of the US called MedContour. Hundreds of physicians have used MedContour to great success, yielding excellent results.
VASER Shape MC1 was designed for physicians to custom tailor treatment per patient. The device comes with multiple hand pieces that deliver high-frequency sound waves, also called ultrasonic diathermy, for local heat therapy and zonal lymphatic massage. Another benefit of the VASER Shape MC1 device is different program settings that the physician can alter depending on treatment needed: a gentle postoperative session to relieve pain and swelling or a more aggressive therapy for body-contouring results, without surgery.
