For many, men and women alike, loose skin can prevent you from living your life to the fullest. It can increase insecurity, limit clothing choices, and affect your social calendar for summertime or beach outings. Whether genetic or the result of natural aging or significant weight loss, skin laxity is more common than you think. But you don’t have to live with it. With vShape Ultra, Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics can tighten your skin so you can say yes to the next invitation to the beach.
How Does Skin Tightening with vShape Ultra Work?
Collagen, the main protein in the skin’s structures, provides support to the body’s connective tissues, including the spaces between cells in the skin, so when age or other factors affect its production, it’s no surprise the skin is one of the first areas to show signs of laxity. The vShape Ultra contouring system uses a combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency technology to penetrate all the skin’s layers to correct these concerns. Radiofrequency waves incite movement in water molecules, heating them to create thermal energy, which stimulates collagen contraction and tightening. It also increases collagen production, so your body naturally produces more of what it needs to help you look younger for longer.
The other half of vShape Ultra’s system, the ultrasound waves, ruptures fat cells, killing them so they’re filtered out through the body’s natural flushing system. By honing in on fat responsible for cellulite and removing it, vShape Ultra becomes a one-two punch to tighten skin for smooth, youthful contours.
How Long Before I See Results?
The effectiveness of vShape Ultra happens on two fronts: the reduction in fat cells responsible for cellulite, and the tightening and production of collagen. Both of those effects take time. Noticeable improvements to your skin’s texture may happen as early as 1-2 weeks post-treatment, though progress is at its greatest point between 3-6 months as your collagen production reaches its peak.
It also takes time for the body to filter out the fat cells disrupted by the ultrasound wavelength portion of the vShape Ultra treatment. On a timeline similar to collagen production, the most dramatic results will be visible between 3-6 months. Patients often report a loss of 2-4 centimeters of fat from the treatment area. For a slimmer, more toned shape with smoother, tighter skin, vShape Ultra is non-invasive and virtually pain-free, without the downtime or expense of surgery.
