Over the last 30 years, engineers and plastic surgeons have successfully accomplished turning back time and restoring a more youthful appearance for their patients by developing some of the most sophisticated equipment. In 2010, technology has advanced so much that patients can utilize their own fat to fill in facial lines and wrinkles.
Sound Surgical technology has released the latest version of the VASER ultrasound series, the VASER 2.0. This complex equipment has been re-engineered to improve the overall experience for physicians, and provide even greater versatility forbody contouring procedures.
The newest version of ultrasonic energy has been optimized to specifically break apart fatty deposits, while preserving important connective tissue and maintaining the fat cell viability.
