Vaser is an astonishingly effective method of fat reduction using ultrasound. It involves using localised ultrasound energy to treat fatty tissue, turning them to liquid form and therefore making them much easier to remove. So easy, in fact, they can be removed from an incision no bigger than a pinprick.
Vaser is significantly more comfortable than traditional liposuction, too, as this approach causes much less damage to the surrounding fat cells, and as a result is far less traumatic to the body on the whole. Vaser recovery is but a fraction of that of traditional lipo: incredible results with virtually none of the sacrifice!
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Vaser also gets to work at stimulating collagen, so not only do patients receive a drastic reduction of the fatty cells beneath the skin, the skin itself appears far firmer and tight. Vaser is the perfect solution for those hoping to shift a pesky pouch of fat that diet and exercise just cannot seem to shift, but don't have time for messing around. Vaser is lipo accelerated. Faster treatment, faster recovery, faster results...
Vaser is perfect for the stubborn areas where fatty tissue always seems to stockpile. The chin, neck, underarms, inner thighs, chest, buttocks, tummy and hips all respond fantastically to Vaser, leaving treated areas remarkably tighter, more toned, and with any sight of cellulite obliterated.
We all have a desired shape in our mind's eye. A smaller waist, a flatter tummy, more toned legs perhaps. Often though, no matter how many sit ups, squats and lunges we do, we simply cannot beat genetics. Fat is distributed how it's distributed, right? Well not exactly. That was then. This is now.
Finally, we can treat those unwanted lumps and bumps with cutting-edge, minimally invasive methods, that leave the area looking fabulously taut and trim. Vaser's contouring abilities are second to none, so forget suffering through painful surgery, scarring and excess skin - now there's a better way.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
'Vaser' stands for 'Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance'. It is a version of liposuction which loosens fatty tissue using ultrasound, making the extraction of fat far less stressful for the body.
Firstly, a small probe is used to administer ultrasound pulses to the treatment area. These pulses cause vibration which gently break apart the fat cells on contact, and when combined with an injectable fluid (known as 'tumescent fluid.') turn the treated cells to a liquid emulsion. This emulsion can then be removed using a small cannula, causing minimum damage to the surrounding tissue.
In comparison to conventional liposuction, this approach ensures there is much less bruising, discomfort and subsequent scarring.
Vaser treatment will not only remove bulk from those areas which we feel look disproportionate - perhaps chunky thighs, love handles or a build up of fat around the neck - it can add definition to muscles, sculpt the silhouette, prevent unsightly bulging, firm the skin and even result in generalised weight loss.
Due to the way in which the fat is extracted, Vaser also works wonders on cellulite. As cellulite occurs when the layer of fat beneath the skin begins to push against connective tissue, ultrasound pulses work to break down these lumpy fat deposits to an even consistency for extraction. This leaves the area far smoother beneath, and practitioners can easily sculpt around the muscles for better contouring.
Prices for Vaser treatments at Harley Street Skin begin at £2,500. These costs will be dependant on the extent of Vaser necessary, as well as the size of the area(s) requiring treatment.
But don't panic - costs of Vaser are also available on fixed monthly payment plans. If you are at all concerned about the price of treatment, get in touch today to talk it through with one of our friendly finance team!
Vaser treatment offers permanent removal of excess fat tissue. Provided that you maintain a healthy lifestyle afterwards, you will be able to maintain fantastic results indefinitely.
The treatment itself should take no longer than 1-2 hours. This will, of course, depend on how many areas are being treated and/or the size of these areas.
Many patients report visible results straight away, even with some swelling, and will continue to markedly improve as all of the inflammation subsides, You should see your permanent Vaser results at around week 5 or 6.
Vaser is a precise and innovative approach to fat reduction, and therefore it is extremely low-risk. There is very little to worry about.
Patients will experience some swelling, bruising and potentially some lingering numbness following Vaser, however, this is practically nothing when compared today the fallout from conventional Liposuction. All Vaser side effects should all clear up within 6 weeks or so.
It is also perfectly normal for there to be slight residue or 'leakage' from extraction sites following Vaser - a pink or orange-tinted discharge. While this may look alarming, we can assure you, it's actually a perfectly healthy response to treatment, and even aids your recovery. This will cease within the first 1-3 days.
Vaser is performed as outpatient surgery under local anaesthetic - that means you're free to walk right on out of the clinic that very same day.
It is great as there is no need to set aside lengthy downtime or use up precious annual leave - you won't even require stitches (just a simple compression garment which you will be instructed to wear for the first portion of your recovery).
It will take up to 5-6 weeks for you to be entirely 'recovered' (i.e. free from any swelling whatsoever) but in terms of returning to normality, patients tend to feel fighting fit in as little as 2-3 days.
You should be fit and able to return to work between 2-5 days of treatment. This may be extended to 7 if the patient is having multiple areas treated simultaneously, but your doctor to will be happy to talk you through bespoke recovery times at your free of charge consultation.
