VASER Liposuction is a treatment which uses very targeted ultrasound technology in order to reduce the fat cells in the body. It is powerful enough to tackle large areas of the body but also precise enough to treat delicate areas such as the ankles. Ultrasound energy is used to emulsify the excess fat tissues while protecting the surrounding tissue.

In addition to Vaser Liposuction, Renuvion can also be used to reshape and tone stubborn fat on the ankles. Once excess fat cells have been removed, Renuvion can work to tighten and tone the skin. A small Renuvion wand is used to apply radiofrequency energy to the ankle area, and this encourages new collagen production. The new collagen instantly firms and tightens the skin.
