Oh, if it wasn’t for gravity. As we get older the natural supporting structures in our skin begin to break down and become looser. Collagen loosens. Elastin isn’t so elastic. So, our once tight and buoyant skin sags. That makes us feel and look old. VShape technology works to tighten and lift skin. VShape (formerly known as Accent) works on almost any area of the body. Sagging neck, we can do that. Loose and floppy arms, we have that covered. A sagging paunch, we can take care of that. Even cellulite can be improved with VShape.
HOW VSHAPE SKIN TIGHTENING WORKS
VShape uses a combination of radio frequency (RF) and ultrasound energy to warm the deep layers of the skin, visibly improving the shape and contours of the face and body. This combination of two energies is distinctive to VShape and is the reason that it is uniquely effective. Cold ultrasound shear waves selectively destroy fat and radio frequency energy causes collagen fibers to contract, tightening the skin and improving its texture while also building new collagen, which lifts and tightens the skin. Given its unique combination of technologies VShape works on multiple layers of the skin simultaneously. It’s truly a revolutionary treatment.
VSHAPE SKIN TIGHTENING FAQS
Is VShape safe?
VShape has been used throughout the world for over five years with no serious side effects. It can be used on all skin types – it doesn’t matter how dark or light your skin is. It is safe for treatment of the thin and delicate areas of the face, neck and décolleté areas. You may see some redness of the skin after treatment, but that’s all. At Vivesse Med Spa in Bloomfield, we only use licensed medical and nursing professionals, who have been through in depth training and have the knowledge to make your skin tightening treatment a success!
Is VShape painful?
Not at all. Gradual heating and an integrated cooling system prevent pain for more comfortable treatments.
How long does a skin tightening treatment take?
The typical treatment takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on how large an area we are treating.
How many VShape treatments will I need?
We recommend a course of up to six treatments separated by three weeks and sell treatments as a package. However, skin does continue to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Is there any downtime?
None at all. You can immediately resume normal activities after a treatment session.
