Sometimes, no matter how hard the exercise, or how healthy the diet, we have areas of fat that don’t respond. Maybe it’s your inner thighs, or a bulge at your bra line. Perhaps it’s an area that’s difficult to exercise, such as your neck or beneath your chin. The good news is there are nonsurgical methods to help rid you of unwanted, hard-to-shape fat pockets to improve your silhouette, fit more comfortably in your clothes, and boost your confidence. Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics combines two procedures for the same cost, give you lasting fat reduction in problem areas, so you can feel your best every day.
vShape Ultra Skin Tightening and CoolSculpting
For many people, loose skin is a problem because of age, significant weight loss, or other factors. vShape Ultra is a non-invasive contouring system that combines ultrasound with advanced radiofrequency. The radiofrequency uses thermal energy to move water molecules in the tissues, resulting in collagen contraction and skin tightening. The ultrasound waves target and burst fat cells, all without injuring surrounding cells. The end result is firmer, tighter skin, visibly reduced wrinkles, and a reshaped contour you’ll love.
With CoolSculpting, fat cells are even more of a target. Once it was discovered that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than surrounding tissue cells, this non-invasive treatment was perfected. By delivering precisely controlled cooling to targeted fat cells, CoolSculpting crystallizes those cells, killing them so your body can flush them from your system naturally.
Effective Combination of Treatments
It makes sense that fewer fat cells in your body means your skin will be looser, and more prone to the effects of gravity. By combining the two treatments, Trilogy Medical solves two problems at once, using vShape Ultra to give your skin the boost of collagen it needs to bounce back after sculpting the fat cells away with CoolSculpting. vShape Ultra aids the fat cell removal process, and reshapes the treatment area, smoothing the gaps left by the dead fat cells, and tightening and toning the skin for a more youthful appearance.
What to Expect: Treatment and Results
Neither treatment is painful, and there’s no downtime associated with them. Patients report that during the ultrasound phase of the vShape Ultra treatment, they experience slight tingling. The radiofrequency phase has been described as a warm massage. For the CoolSculpting portion of the session, patients experience a suction sensation as the device adheres to the area of concern, and a cooling feeling as the treatment proceeds. The area quickly becomes numb, and patients are able to relax, read, or even nap.
With both procedures, it’s possible to see immediate results, and improvements will continue over the following weeks. With vShape Ultra, those improvements will continue for 3-6 months, and CoolSculpting improvements will peak between 6-8 weeks and continue to reduce fat for up to a year! Staying hydrated following both treatments is key. A healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and exercise will help you maintain your perfected contour and curves for years to come. We can help with that too with our Lean To Wellness program.
With both procedures performed simultaneously and for the same cost of one treatment option, there’s no reason not to call Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics today.
