vShape Body Contouring
Advanced Skin Fitness proudly offers the all new vShape by Accent XL for skin body contouring and skin tightening.
vShape by Accent XL is a new procedure that delivers remarkable results for loose skin and unwanted bulges of fat. Skin that has started sagging, wrinkling, dimpling and bulging with patches of fatty tissue can cause a negative appearance of the body. This skin damage can often be a result of aging and sun exposure. The areas of unwanted fat can happen from pregnancy and can develop on the hips, stomach, thighs, upper arms and under your chin. Some patients assume that surgery or invasive techniques are the only ways to alleviate these changes to the body. Fortunately, there are viable non-surgical, non-invasive solutions for tightening loose skin and removing fat in specific areas that are comfortable and quick.
At Advanced Skin Fitness we offer solutions for skin tightening and fat reduction, so the body can be slimmed, contoured, toned and reshaped. vShape is a highly effective body contouring technology that uses precise heat therapy to destroy fat cells. Ultimately the skin is tightened and existing cellulite is dramatically diminished. In keeping with the times, Advanced Skin Fitness has acquired the NEW FDA-approved UniForm handpiece, which is three times larger and penetrates four times deeper into fat cells than the original Accent XL handpiece.
The vShape treatments offer an exceptional choice for minimizing wrinkles, sagging, fine lines, cellulite, stretch marks and contouring the body all over with an easy, fast procedure. There are questions and concerns that patients may have about the procedure, side effects, downtime. We address some of those concerns with pertinent information about the procedure.

What is vShape Body Contouring and how does it work?
This procedure tightens the skin and contours the body through precise heat therapy.
The vShape is a safe, non-invasive body contouring thermotherapy that delivers thermal heat to sagging or bulging skin. The Uniform handpiece is placed against the skin to target and heat fat cells with radio frequency waves. The selected heated fat cells are disrupted and gradually broken down without damaging the surrounding tissue. The treated fat cells are reduced in size and the skin is reshaped and tightened. As superficial and deep layers are effected cellulite is diminished.
While the radio frequency waves tighten the skin, new collagen production is triggered to help the skin naturally stay tighter and smooth with an overall improved texture.
The vShape therapy allows you to metabolize fat and profoundly diminish cellulite all over the body, particularly the upper arms, hips, thighs and stomach. Loose skin on the face and under the chin can be tightened quickly. The treatment provides long lasting results and is a great procedure to use after giving birth or having liposuction.
How many vShape treatments are required to see results?
You should see noticeable results after the couple of procedures.
For maximum results we recommend having 6 to 10 treatments. Each treatment should be scheduled two or three weeks apart. From there you should see continued improvement over the next 4-6 months. Soon you’ll have the body you were hoping for.
How long are vShape treatments and are they painful?
vShape treatments are between 30-45 minutes long. They’re comfortable and relatively pain free.
Because each patient is different, their goals will determine how long each treatment will last. If the patient is having multiple areas treated, then the time will be extended for the procedure.
The procedure is not painful, but the patient will feel a moderate amount of temperature controlled heat from a hand piece that is placed on the body. There will be a relaxing warmth on the skin, similar to a hot stone massage.
Is there Downtime and are there side effects with vShape treatments?
There is no downtime after having the vShape treatment.
The vShape treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, so patients should be able to go right back to their normal activities after each treatment. Some patients may experience some mild irritation like redness or swelling, which should subside in a day or so.
How does vShape compare to other Fat Reduction Treatments?
Patients tend to see faster results with vShape than with other procedures, however the results are not permanent.
vShape is comparable to treatments like Vanquish and Coolsculpting because they directly target specific areas of fat. The difference is the vShape treatment reduces the size of the fat cell while also providing skin tightening while Vanquish and Coolsculpting actually destroy the fat cells and they are eliminated from the body. One unique feature of JuveShape is its ability to show immediate results after the first treatment because it causes the release of fatty acids and triglycerides. Vanquish and Coolsculpting are permanent, but it may take a few weeks for noticeable improvement and typically do not offer any tightening.
vShape is a great compliment to the Coolsculpting procedure, which freezes fat cells and destroys them and the Vanquish which destroys that fat cells using radio frequency heat. Once patients have had Coolsculpting or Vanquish, vShape can be used to tighten the skin.
Can vShape be used on all skin types?
vShape is safe to use on all skin types.
Some laser techniques can have negative effects on darker skin and sensitive skin, but vShape uses mild radio frequency waves rather than lasers, so patients with various skin types can feel safe having the procedure.
