What is VShape?
VShape is a noninvasive treatment integrating ultrasound and radiofrequency energy to target deep layers and skin and tissue. VShape can be effective in improving face and body concerns including:
- Stubborn fat
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin texture
VShape can be used in many areas of the body including the abdominal, love handles, thighs and buttocks. Ultrasound energy can be used to reduce fat, or radiofrequency can tighten the skin, improving wrinkles and cellulite.
Those who want to subtly reshape and resurface their skin, face, and body can benefit from vShape. The treatment is great for those who do not want to undergo an invasive procedure or plastic surgery that would require discomfort and downtime. The vShape treatment should not be used as an alternative to weight loss and candidates should be within their ideal weight range.
During treatment with vShape, a handpiece will be used to deliver energy to the treatment site. During the process, some patients report a tingling sensation, but the treatment is pain-free, requiring no anesthesia. The length of your treatment process will depend on the location and size of the area being treated. For fat reduction, one to four treatment sessions are typically recommended. If you are receiving treatment for skin tightening or cellulite reduction, two to ten sessions might be required for optimal results. Treatment sessions will be spaced about two weeks apart.
Recovery and Results
After treatment with vShape, the skin might be pink or red for a few days. You can experience immediate results from vShape, but best results can be experienced one to two weeks after treatment. Fat cell reduction can continue for as long as two to three months. When used for fat reduction, vShape results are permanent, however, fat can still be gained in untreated areas. When used for cellulite reduction and skin tightening, the results can last for up to a year before a follow-up treatment would be required.
