At last… a solution for that pesky, sagging, loose, gravity-fighting skin! If diet and exercise already fit into your routine, but you are killing yourself to shake off that “extra” skin, one word… JuVaShape! This new radio frequency laser not only assists in destroying your fat cells, but also uses bipolar radio frequency to tone and tighten your skin. This treatment can be performed on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, face, neck, jowls, chest, and it has even been used to decrease the appearance of creping skin on the lower legs. How exactly does this miraculous laser work? It’s quite simple, once you take out all of the medical terminology. The JuVaShape device is a two-part deal. The first part targets the deep layer of the skin where all of the fat cells reside. The radio frequency technology of the unipolar hand piece painlessly heats up that deep fatty layer to the point where it essentially destroys and expels the fat cells. Then the bipolar hand piece promotes new collagen formation which in turn leaves the skin smoother, tighter, and toned. One of the best things about this procedure is that there is virtually no down-time. After your treatment you are left with some redness, but that dissipates within an hour or two. So many of our patients ask us, “What is the difference between JuVaShape and CoolSculpting?” Honestly, CoolSculpting does exactly what it says it does. It burns the fat. However, CoolSculpting does not treat the loose, sagging skin you are left with after the fat is gone and can only treat a brick-sized area at a time. And it can be uncomfortable. JuVaShape feels like a hot stone massage and is tolerated so well that many of our patients fall asleep during treatment.
Now here’s the skinny on tightened and toned skin. There is actually a body sculpting cream created by SkinCeuticals that has been tested in conjunction with JuVaShape to even further improve the appearance of that troublesome skin. Dr. David Goldberg with Skin Laser and Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ performed JuVaShape treatments on 20 female subjects with mild-to-moderate skin laxity of the thigh/buttocks area. A randomly picked amount of subjects used SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate in combination with their JuVaShape treatments. The outcome was that a significant improvement was found in the overall appearance of all subjects treated with JuVaShape. However, the subjects who applied SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate showed a significantly greater degree of improvement than the subjects who did not use any topical therapy. Thus concluding that combined therapy leads to better results. SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate is a unique cream that uses yeast extracts to drive the product into the skin, and it has cryofluids which give it a cooling effect. It is dye and paraben free, and it smells good too.
We consider SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate to be the non-fat icing on top of a toned and tightened cake!
If you are still unsure if JuVaShape is the right treatment for you, ask yourself a few of these questions:
• Are you interested in taking advantage of the latest and most advanced beauty technology to help improve the appearance of problem spots on your face or body? • Does cellulite get in the way of your confidence despite a healthy lifestyle, clean diet and commitment to overall wellness? • Are you interested in noninvasive treatments that fit into your busy schedule, requiring little to no downtime and minimal discomfort? • Do you want to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles on your face, revealing your naturally radiant beauty? • Are you interested in preventative, anti-aging treatments?
If you answered yes to even one of the questions then JuVaShape’s non-invasive, painless approach to achieving your goals is something to seriously consider.
