  • Q. How soon will I see the results from my VASER lipo procedure?

    A. Visible results will vary with the extent of the procedure, amount of fat removed and number of areas treated. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final results evident at about 3 to 6 months.

  • Q. If I gain weight after my VASER lipo, will fat transfer to other areas?

    A. This is a common misconception. Following your VASER lipo, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body, assuming that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Fat will not migrate. Normal changes associated with aging should be expected.

  • Q. How can I be certain that VASER lipo is right for me?

    A. If you are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise, VASER lipo may provide a solution. Dr. Peter Schmid will thoroughly discuss the benefits and risks of VASER lipo with you prior to making your final decision.

  • Q. How much does VASER liposuction cost?

    A. VASER lipo is an advanced procedure and without a one-on-one consultation and evaluation with Dr. Schmid, it is not possible to provide an accurate estimate of fees. Fees will vary with number of areas treated and the extensiveness of the procedure.

  • Q. What is automated microneedling?

    A. MicroPen Elite, also called microneedling or collagen induction therapy ( CIT ), is an innovative, non-surgical treatment targeting fine lines, scars, stretch marks, sun damage, wrinkles. In this procedure, the MicroPen makes microperforations in the dermis, leaving the epidermis in tact, in order to promote the production of collagen and elastin.

  • Q. What are the benefits of MicroPen microneedling?

    A. Microneedling targets fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage (photodamage), textural issues, acne scars, surgical scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks.

  • Q. What is the healing time for MicroPen microneedling?

    A. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will be red and, on average, is healed within 2-4 days. However, healing will depend upon the extent of treatment (ie, how many passes the aesthetician performed on your skin).

  • Q. When will I see the results from my MicroPen Elite microneedling procedure?

    A. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks, but you will likely notice an immediate "glow" to the skin. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after your MicroPen treatment as collagen production continues.
