VASER technology is the third generation of ultrasonic instrumentation for lipoplasty. The VAL technique combines the VASER technological refinements in energy delivery and instrumentation with improved clinical techniques to produce a fundamentally different method of fatty tissue manipulation. The objective of this effort has always been to minimize tissue matrix trauma while obtaining the desired clinical outcome with maximum safety and effectiveness. Future works include the application of the VASER system and associated techniques to the face and neck and other areas.
