What is vShape?
Alma vShape is one of the most advanced Radiofrequency devices for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction available today. vShape is capable of targeting fat, tightening skin, and resurfacing skin. Laser technology is usually limited to specific skin types (Fitz I – III or Fitz IV – VI), but vShape with its calming radio frequency energy, can be safe for all skin types. vShape can treat parts of the body including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, love handles (muffin top), buttocks, legs, and thighs. The more commonly asked questions about this popular procedure are listed below.
What is the vShape procedure?
It is non-invasive, relatively pain free, and since it combines multiple technologies in one device, it is capable of treating all areas of the body.
How does vShape work?
vShape combines proprietary radio frequency technologies so that it can target fat and tighten skin without painful surgical procedures, uncomfortable side effects, or worrisome downtime. Alma vShape is one of the only devices available that offers two modes of Radiofrequency treatment delivering heat at different tissue depths; one targeting fat cells and the other can tighten the skin. The bi-polar mode can be used for superficial layers and the unipolar mode can be used for deeper layers. The deepest setting targets fat, the superficial mode targets skin tightening, and a combination of both modes focuses on cellulite.
How soon will I see results?
For face and neck treatments, you might see some results following the initial treatment. Changes of tightening and smoothing will occur over the next couple of months. However, we recommend 6 treatments sessions, and a healthy lifestyle will aid in maximizing your results.
Is the vShape procedure safe?
vShape can be a safe alternative to invasive aesthetic facial and body surgery. It incorporates advanced safety precautions and thousands of patients have been treated safely. It’s non-invasive and can deliver great results with minimal downtime on all skin types.
How long before I can return to my normal activities?
Depending on what area you have done you have minimal downtime. Treatments can be incorporated into your schedule with few limitations on work and exercise. Most people return to their regular activities immediately following the vShape procedure.
What does the procedure cost?
The procedure fee will vary depending on the area or areas you want treated. Please feel free to contact the Lloyd Dermatology and Laser Center for further information.
