For Tighter Skin, Body & Facial Contouring, Cellulite Reduction, and Resurfacing
- VST - ST standing for skin tightening - this treatment is VERY comfortable & quick. It uses low level heat to cause a controlled thermal injury inside the skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin production as well as remodeling of existing collagen to improve skin laxity. It is used to plump the lips if the patient happens to not want to have fillers done. Other areas that can be treated are under eye bags and circles, marionettes, under chin laxity, forehead, hands, crepy knees, elbows, earlobes, and the labia majora and minora. This treatment requires 4-6 treatments done 2-4 weeks apart depending on the age of the patient. It is sold in packages. There is no downtime.
- VFORM - Using a combination of heat (by RF) and vacuum, this treatment causes the shrinkage and apoptosis (cell death) of the hypodermis (fat) for cellulite & fat reduction for the face and body. Patients can expect up to 5 inches in reduction on areas like the abdomen, flanks and thighs. This is also great for jaw & cheek contouring. Treatments are approximately 15-20 minutes per area. They are done in a series of 4-8 treatments a week apart. There is no downtime. Patients will have to commit to drinking a liter to a liter and a half of water during the entire protocol.
- VFR - This is another solution for resurfacing, skin tightening and lifting, all in one. Using fractional radiofrequency with capabilities of both ablation and coagulation, VFR treatments are versatile in that we can treat shallowly for resurfacing for pigment and fine lines, medium depth for skin tightening and overall rejuvenation, or deep for patients with acne scarring or those who need significant lifting. This is an amazing alternative to a CO2 or fractional laser resurfacing treatment. It is FAR more comfortable, just as effective, and has less downtime. Patients should expect 3-7 days of downtime. Makeup can be applied after 24 hours. Numbing is recommended. Treatments take approximately an hour. Some patients will need a series of 3-4 treatments done 4 weeks apart.
