VASER Smooth for Cellulite Removal – Houston, Texas

VASER Smooth, a minimally-invasive cellulite treatment, selectively emulsifies superficial fatty tissue and breaks up the structures responsible for the skin dimpling and contour irregularities commonly referred to as cellulite.
In essence, Vasersmooth is able to treat cellulite by breaking down (via ultrasounds) the structures that cause the unevenness on the surface of the skin as well as contour irregularities. In order to get under the layer of skin and emulsify the fat of the targeted area, a few tiny incisions are made for a thin cannula to pass through. Before the ultrasound energy is applied, a solution of water, numbing medication and adrenalin is permeated.


This is a short list of the most notable merits of Vasersmooth:

• Tightening of the skin without generating harmful heat
• Effective treatment of skin dimpling
• Limited risk of nerve damage because of the gentle physical force applied
• Smoother contouring of the treated areas
• Liquefaction of the fat via ultrasonic energy, which allows the doctor to redistribute it or use it for fat grafting
• Fast recovery thanks to the milder technique employed and the subsequent limited bruising after the operation


Vasersmooth treats cellulite by reversing the activity of the factors that cause dimpling and fat cells irregularities. Thus, the first evident results are not noticeable immediately after the operation (although some can be detected after 7-10 days) but they typically need more time, advancing steadily for a period of 2 to 6 months until they become final.

Compared to the conventional liposuction techniques, Vasersmooth is different, as it does not claim to eliminate fat but aims at refining skin irregularities on the cured areas. Yet, this does not mean that it cannot be combined with other, complementary procedures in order to deliver the maximum results.

Side Effects

With the reservation of the method’s unproven effectiveness and safety, there are no serious adverse reactions being expected after a Vasersmooth operation. Yet, minimal bleeding, bruising or infection could arise, while fluid may leak from the incisions within the first day after the procedure. In any case, the first three effects are not likely to last more than 7-10 days after the operation. Moreover, the risks of damage on nerves or surrounding tissues are extremely limited, thanks to the aforementioned great precision Vasersmooth is designed to offer.
