No. Most clients have stated that it’s a comfortable treatment. Bony areas may be a bit more sensitive, however, usually well-tolerated.
During the treatment, clients can feel hot and cold sensations. The cold sensation comes from the innovative cooling tip that protects the surface layer of skin while the heat appears when the device emits its radio frequency energy into the deeper layer of skin where it works to stimulate collagen remodelling.
There isn’t any downtime except for some mild swelling and pinkness of the skin. These should subside within a few hours, in rare cases, a few days.
You may return to most of your usual activities post-treatment.
For the face, you may need 4-8 sessions performed every 2 weeks. Estimates may vary for each patient.
Clients who are experiencing mild to moderate laxity in their skin may be suitable for this treatment. For example, if you notice a bit of skin sag or droop around the eye region, your therapist will best advise you whether you are a good candidate for V-ST Skin Tightening or not.
Ideally, the V-ST Skin Tightening is for those who are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity and would like to address these first signs of ageing. They understand it will take a series of sessions to improve the concerns and regularly return for maintenance sessions.
Yes! Unlike a lot of laser therapies and treatments available, Radio Frequency energy is “colour blind” meaning it does not get picked up by pigment in the skin and works on all skin tones.
Yes, we highly recommend that you follow a few instructions such as begin drinking enough water (at least 1 – 1.5 litres a day) for two weeks leading up to your treatment and continue throughout your course of sessions. This ensures your cells are adequately hydrated and increase your skin conductivity levels during your session.
Avoid any vitamin A or actives at least 3 days beforehand. No other skin treatments at least 2-4 weeks before your V-ST.
