Better Skin Tightening with Juvashape
- Posted on: Dec 7 2016
At Northcoast Laser we use lasers for a variety facial and body procedures, in addition to procedures such as removing tattoos and spider veins. But we also like radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin and renew texture, tone, and clarity.
It’s called JuVaShape and the key is in its radiofrequency energy.
Bi-polar radiofrequency energy
The V-Shape technology used in JuVaShape is uses two modes of radiofrequency treatment to deliver heat to different tissue depths. One of the modes targets fat cells; the other tightens the skin. Different depths can be specified, with deeper depths targeting the fat layer and superficial depths targeting skin tightening. When a combination of modes is used it focuses on reducing the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
How does it work?
The JuVaShape RF energy radiates down into the dermis and the fat layer below it. This increases circulation and blood flow, which strengthens the tissue and and improves the surface layer (epidermis) texture. The heat triggers a wound response in the body, which responds by producing new collagen in the area. Deep dermal heating also helps to improve drainage of retained fluids in the subcutaneous adipose tissue layer, which reduces the size of this layer.
What can you treat with JuVaShape?
At Northcoast, we use JuVaShape’s V-Shape technology to address skin laxity, cellulite, and fat reduction all over the body. These typical problem areas include the face, neck, arms, belly, love handles, buttocks, legs, thighs, and calves.
What does the procedure feel like?
JuVaShape is painless. The radiofrequency energy is delivered through a handpiece that is placed against the skin of the target area. A smooth swirling motion is used to heat the area to a consistent temperature according to the treatment plan. Patients generally feel a warming sensation, somewhat akin to a relaxing hot massage.
Is there any downtime?
JuVaShape is completely safe and non-invasive. There is no downtime after your session.
