Tighten and Firm Your Face and Neck
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments in CT & RI
Is this your skin issue?
- Have you noticed the skin on your cheeks, lower face, jawline, and neck becoming looser, more wrinkled, and sagging?
- Are you looking for a skin tightening alternative to surgery?
The Science: Face and Neck Tissue Tightening
Over time, collagen fibers uncoil, become less uniform, and degenerate. This causes the skin tone to become loose, less firm. We develop rippling on the cheeks, loose skin around the mouth, a less defined jawline with “jowls”, excess skin on the neck, less toned areas on the arms, buttock crease, and knees.
Newer non-surgical technology helps tighten the skin by focusing controlled radiofrequency energy on the deeper layers of the skin. This warming of the tissue stimulates collagen growth at the level which causes tighter firmer skin. The device and technology can be used to tighten the face/jawline/neck area as well as contour areas of the body such as the arms, upper thighs, knees, and abdomen.
During a treatment, the Accent or Vshape wands will precisely heat an area of the inner layer of your skin (dermis) using radio frequency technology. As the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that promotes the creation of new collagen. The result: a return to the smooth, shapely and elastic skin of your youth. The new JuvaShape or VShape Accent has improved control over the depth of heating to provide you with even better treatments.
Basically, the bipolar module focuses on the surface layer of the skin, while the unipolar module penetrates further for deep dermal thermotherapy. The Bipolar treatment is well suited for areas where the skin is thinner and more delicate, such as the face, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The Unipolar treatment generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause friction and heating in the deeper tissues, which leads to improvements in overall shaping and firmness.
Taken together, these dual-layer treatments can create dramatic change without the need for invasive surgery. The deep heat of the radiofrequency encourages new collagen growth, with causes a firmer contour to the skin.
The Solution: Accent VShapeTreatment
Treatments with the Accent-VShape are quick, and do not require anesthesia or prolonged recovery time; you can resume their normal activities immediately.
Depending on the size of the treated area, a treatment typically takes 45 to 60 minutes. Patients often describe the sensation as a "warm massage." The risk of significant side effects is low. Following each treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice a slight redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. Generally, six treatments are needed to see the expected results; the treatments are spaced approximately four weeks apart.
A major benefit of the VShape therapy is it involves no surgery, no injections or needles, and no downtime-you can return immediately to your daily activities. The VShape technology adds to the Accent by more precisely guiding the energy to the specific layer or level of skin to improve the tightening and firming effects of this non surgical procedure.
The VShape treatment causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away; results are immediately visible. With time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin and yielding even more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin. While just a few treatments can produce good results, most patients achieve their best outcome after a series of six sessions. Future follow-up treatments can also be used to maintain and improve your body's youthful appearance.
