Have you found yourself fretting over the negative effects ageing has on your face? VMax gives you the advantage of a facelift without having to consider surgery or similarly invasive procedures. With the delivery of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), deep tissue layers are targeted. VMax reaches 3.5mm-4.5mm deep under the skin, fully penetrating into the second layer of muscles underneath the facial muscles- much deeper than other lasers to contract skin muscles. Going deep means increased levels of collagen production. After 20, the skin synthesizes less collagen with each passing year. As such, the skin gets drier, thinner and less taut. Upon collagen production, once sagging facial and neck skin lifts and appear youthful and tighter. The VMax has 2 main modes : fat burning and lifting and 6 beauty functions – wrinkle removal, face shaping, fat cells and cellulite elimination and skin elasticity. VMax body contouring can be done by breaking down excessive fatty layers between 10mm-20mm deep.
Recommended areas for VMax
- Decolletage (chest area)
- Under chin
- Body parts
- No downtime
- Minimal discomfort
- Non-invasive (No cutting or stitches). Ultrasound does not disrupt the surface of the skin.
- Takes a shorter time to complete, as previous HIFU treatments
- Specially designed 2.5cm hand-piece can be used on delicate areas like the sides of the nose
When can I see results?
Results are significantly noticeable after a single session as the technology used rapidly increases collagen production and hence, boosts elasticity. Upon intense rejuvenation, the tightened skin wraps itself around one’s facial silhouette and lifts sagging skin.
What is the difference between Ulthera and VMax?
As Ulthera is micro-focused with each beam concentrating on a specific surface area and particular depth, patients might feel a high degree of pain during the treatment. VMax is virtually painless as compared to Ulthera and no forms of anaesthetic are needed. VMax HIFU beams are controlled at 65 degree Celsius which is a comfortable level. However, some may feel a short-lived slight tingle or mild soreness in the treated area. Also, the results of Ulthera are longer lasting (12-18 months), while VMax requires maintenance every few months.
How many sessions do I need?
Usually, 2 sessions are done 2 weeks apart and a session should be done every 3 months for maintenance. This will bring about ideal effects of VMax.
How are the best candidates for VMax?
Ultrasound treatment is great for those who have mild to moderate facial and neck skin laxity. Even younger people, under 30, can consider VMax as a preventive measure. In fact, VMax is recommended to those who have undergone surgical facelift and would like to enhance and prolong the results.
