JuvaShape Your Way to Tighter Skin
- Posted on: Jun 7 2016
For some people, their skin is too tight. Think Joan Rivers or Kenny Rogers five years ago. But for the rest of us, our skin continues to loosen as we age due to decreasing collagen and elastin, along with environmental damage. In the past, the only remedy for this was surgery: maybe a facelift, maybe a tummy tuck, maybe an arm lift.
But at Northcoast Laser, we’ve added a new option, JuvaShape™ for the face and body. It makes good use of radio-frequency energy, unlike certain talk radio blowhards!
How does JuvaShape™ work?
The JuvaShape system uses radio-frequency energy to tighten the skin. It does this non-invasively without pain or downtime. It delivers circumference reduction and skin firming on a variety of areas of the body.
The V-Shape is a specially designed treatment tip that is placed against your skin during the procedure. The tip delivers radio-frequency (RF) energy into the dermis layer of the skin, penetrating from 1-15 millimeters. This energy bypasses (and doesn’t damage) the epidermis (the skin’s surface layer). The RF energy converts to heat energy once under the skin, and this causes the body to respond as if it has received a wound. In the wound-healing process, the body creates new collagen in the treatment area. Collagen is the body’s structural protein, responsible for keeping the skin supported and firm. As we age, our collagen production drops naturally with the passing years.
How does JuvaShape feel during the treatment?
When the V-Shape tip delivers the RF energy, you’ll feel a gentle vibration, as well as cooling and heating sensations. This will occur with each pulse. During the session, the upper layer of your skin is cooled. Overall, the feeling is a relaxing, warming sensation on the treated areas.
What can JuvaShape be used on?
JuvaShape, because it is non-invasive, can be used all over the body. Specifically, it can be used on the face/neck, inner and outer thighs, front and back of the thighs, knees, abdomen, waist, upper arms, buttocks, and the upper and lower back.
How many treatments will I need?
To trigger enough collagen production to be effective, we recommend six bi-weekly treatments. Each session lasts between 40 and 60 minutes.
