These treatments are recommended for people between the ages of 25-70 who are concerned with stubborn areas of fat, cellulite or sagging skin, particularly those areas that show signs of ageing and have not responded to exercise.
AlphaShape is ideal for treating wrinkles, skin laxity, and shaping the face and body. Common areas of treatment include the eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jaw line, décolleté, abdomen, back, arms, legs, knees and ankles.
The computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a warm sensation like a hot stone massage.
The ability to focus the RF energy on specific areas of the face and body at the targeted depth of penetration makes AlphaShape Pro a highly effective aesthetic solution. The device engages the cooling system to heat deep tissue as its constant monitoring of the skin’s temperature facilitates a comfortable, even treatment. To favourably influence the upper skin layers, only controlled heating is engaged to redefine loose skin and smooth wrinkles. Thus, the RF energy causes the collagen supporting tissue to remodel, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture.
Typically, 4-6 treatment sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart are recommended. Clients can experience results after the first few treatments, with many noticing an improvement straight away, the results will continue to improve with each additional session.
Clients that are pregnant/lactating women, people with pacemakers, electronic implantable devices, metal implants in the treatment area, have silicone fillers or have infections in the treatment area cannot have this treatment.
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for about 15-30 minutes. There is no down time, adverse effects are uncommon and mild in nature. Mild redness or hive-like reactions are possible but rare.
You should increase water intake the day before, day of your treatment and after your treatment. This will allow you lymphatic system to work more efficiently, so you get the very best out of each treatment you have.
