Vaser is one of the leading alternatives to surgical buccal fat removal available at Many Faces of Chicago. It combines the benefits of Vaser Liposuction and Renuvion, resulting in a more defined, youthful, and contoured face. The unique benefits of each treatment include the following:

Vaser Liposuction – A liposuction procedure that uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells before their removal from the body. It is minimally invasive and results in less pain, swelling, and bruising than traditional liposuction. It uses ultrasound technology to break down and loosen up fat deposits before removal.
Renuvion / J-Plasma – Radiofrequency energy and helium plasma are delivered to the treatment area during the procedure. The radiofrequency and helium plasma heat energy stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin.

When Vaser lipo is combined with Renuvion, fat cells in the face are broken down, and collagen production is stimulated to tighten the skin and enhance various facial features. Learn more about how Vaser can improve your facial aesthetics by booking a consultation with Dr. Caughlin today.
