Our mission at Venus Medical is to bring you the best, most cutting-edge procedures. With that being said, we’re happy to announce that in May of 2015, Venus Medical was the 1st in Ireland to introduce the revolutionary procedure, VASERsmooth Lipo! The VASERsmooth Advanced Contouring Liposuction and Cellulite Reduction is the technology that we have all been waiting for! It not only helps with fat removal and skin-tightening; it alsoÂ helps to correct cellulite too!
VASERsmooth uses ultrasonic technology to expertly smooth, firm and shape the body by removing fat deposits called cellulite. The VASERsmooth is considered an Advanced Contouring Liposuction and Cellulite Reduction technology because it allows Dr. Prendergast to not only remove excess fat but to also smooth out any cellulite in the treated area. In addition, Dr. Prendergast is able to use any of the fat that has been liposuctioned to use for a fat transfer as well. This technique achieves natural, beautiful results immediately. VASERsmooth contours your shape to enhance your natural curves! This minimally invasive procedure improves skin tone for a smoother, healthier look that lasts.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is an extremely common condition amongst women of all shapes and sizes. It appears as dimpled skin and uneven fat deposits most commonly on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. The cause of cellulite is multifactorial, ranging from genetic origins to hormonal and weight fluctuations. It develops when fat cells protrude through the thin fibrous connective tissue that exists between the skin and the underlying muscles. Some of these “septae” harden over time and contract, creating unsightly dimples and depressions in the skin. With aging, sun damage, and frequent weight changes, loss of skin elasticity reveals more surface irregularities and worsening of cellulite, as well.
Until recently, we were not able to permanently correct cellulite. Several totally non-invasive treatments showed modest and temporary results requiring innumerous treatments. As a world renowned expert in Tumescent, VASER Liposuction, Dr. Prendergast is enthusiastic and proud to offer the new VASERsmooth procedure which is the latest addition to the Vaser Liposuction System. VASERsmooth permits Dr. Prendergast to effectively and quickly treat cellulite with quick recoveries and obvious results. The VASERsmooth procedure is performed totally under local anesthesia in our clinic.
Prior to the procedure, if the patient desires, a sedative can be given to relax you. Through a few tiny incisions that close without stitches or large scars, local anesthesia is then infused under the skin to totally numb the region. Using the thin, ultrasonic ‘VASERsmooth’ wand designed specifically to be used just under the skin, the VASERsmooth device melts superficial fat, breaks the dimpling fibrous septae and tightens loose skin, resulting in an overall and permanently smoother appearance.
This life-changing procedure is one of our favorites at our clinic!
