Treatment times can vary depending on the area being targeted. In most cases, your vShape Ultra session will take only 30-minutes, and you’ll be in and out of the office within the hour.
It’s possible to see noticeable improvements to the skin’s texture as soon as 1-2 weeks following the procedure. Continued improvement will gradually occur as collagen production is enhanced over the course of 3-6 months at which point you’ll see an optimal outcome. Skin will appear smoother, firmer, and more toned.
Minor skin sagging or laxity can sometimes be treated with a single vShape session. Most people, however, will need between 3-5 treatments to see the results they’re hoping for. Maintenance sessions can also be arranged on an annual basis or as needed.
vShape Ultra is a virtually pain-free procedure with no downtime involved. Most people describe the experience like a warm stone massage. There is a mild to moderate ringing in the ears during the treatment with the ultrasound. The non-invasive treatment allows patients to get back to their busy schedule immediately after their in-office appointment. Side effects are minimal and may include minor redness, swelling, or tenderness.
