Skin laxity is a bothersome problem for many. The skin condition can result from changes in weight or genetics, or it can be age-related. Men and women who are embarrassed by loose or sagging skin on the face or body can now achieve dramatic results with a revolutionary non-invasive procedure. vShape Ultra is a safe and effective treatment that can produce firmer skin without any downtime.
How It Works
vShape Ultra pairs ultrasound technology and radiofrequency (RF) energy for a pain-free treatment that tightens loose or saggy skin. Focused RF wavelengths penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis causing a rapid rotation of its water molecules. The resulting friction turns to heat that stimulates the collagen to contract and tighten, leaving you with happy, healthy skin. Not only does the process cause the skin to instantly contract, but it stimulates much-needed collagen production that helps build healthy skin tissue.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
vShape Ultra can safely be used to tighten skin throughout the face and body. However, the most common treatment zones are the face and submental triangle found below the chin. Skin tightening treatments can be done to improve skin elasticity on areas both large and small.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Some initial results can be seen 1-2 weeks post-procedure. As collagen production is boosted and begins to renew deeper layers of skin, you’ll continue to see gradual improvement. Expect to see final results 3-6 months post-treatment. Skin will appear lifted, toned, and tightened.
Minor skin laxity may be treated with just one vShape Ultra session. However, the majority of patients require multiple appointments to achieve their desired results. Touch-up treatments can safely be done on an annual basis or as needed.
What is the Downtime?
vShape Ultra does not require any downtime. Return to your regular activities immediately. Patients may experience minor redness at the treatment site for several days following their appointment. Mineral-based makeup can be applied to cover any adverse side effects.
