Skin tightening & body contouring treatments are not just fads or tech-gimmicks. They are real, proven procedures that actually work and have been fully approved by the FDA for use in the medical aesthetics field.

  • Contours and reduces the appearance of a double chin
  • Treatments are quick and easy to manage
  • Offers minimal discomfort and little to no downtime
  • Permanently eliminates treated fat cells
  • Is FDA approved, safe, and highly effective

Double chins are a common development as we age—and for those who have a hereditary propensity towards the development of “submental fullness”, also known as a double chin, these fatty deposits can occur even during youth. Particularly for those of us who have experienced past weight gain, the resulting double chin can be very hard to tame with diet and exercise. Fortunately, Kybella is an innovative, non-surgical solution for addressing under-chin fat, and is performed quickly and with minimal discomfort. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable solution to address submental fullness.

Traditional cosmetic surgery to address double chins is painful, and requires considerable downtime. Kybella is an excellent alternative to surgery

Alma Laser's V-Shape is one of the most advanced radio frequency devices for face and body contouring available today. V-Shape can treat skin tightening, cellulite, stretch marks, and wrinkles. It can also be used for body contouring and facial shaping. V-Shape is non-invasive, relatively pain free, can provide long lasting results, and since it combines multiple technologies in one device – it is capable of treating all areas of the body. V-Shape combines proprietary radio frequency technologies so that it can target fat and tighten skin without painful surgical procedures, uncomfortable side effects, or worrisome downtime.

V-Shape works by delivering heat at different tissue depths; one targeting fat cells and the other can tighten the skin. The bi-polar mode can be used for superficial layers and the unipolar mode can be used for deeper layers. The deepest setting targets fat, the superficial mode targets skin tightening, and a combination of both modes focuses on cellulite.

NEW V Shape Ultra Offers:

  • FDA approved, safe, and highly effective
  • Body sculpting and skin tightening on arms, abdomen & thighs
  • Face sculpting and skin tightening on jowls, chin and neck
  • Permanent fat reduction
  • Some immediate results

Alma V-Shape Ultra is the 3rd and latest generation of Ultrasound Fat Reduction technology. It is painless and generates a patented shear wave form sound wave that selectively destroys fat cells without damage to the skin, without bruising and without any downtime. This ultrasound system is FDA approved for permanent fat reduction anywhere on the body. V-Shape Ultra works by delivering selective cold shear wave ultrasound technology directly into the problem areas below your skin’s surface with controlled depth settings for maximum results in all the layers. This ultrasound energy causes the fats cells to rupture – all while leaving the surrounding areas (nerves, blood vessels, skin, etc.) unharmed. The radio-frequency technology supercharges water molecules in your skin, which in turn cause a heat reaction to tighten and tone the skin, even within the first treatment.

Alma Laser V-Shape Ultra is ideal for people with stubborn fat or problem areas like the lower belly, outer or inner thighs, fat around the bra line area and the jawline. This procedure is not recommended for major weight loss but for stubborn areas that need contouring and tightening.

Coolsculpting Offers:

  • FDA approved, safe and highly effective treatment
  • 20%-30% permanent fat cell destruction in treatment area
  • Quick and easy 1 - 2 hour treatment time
  • No downtime and minimal to no pain

Instead, this FDA-approved technology literally freezes away excess fat cells so they can be reabsorbed by your own body, leaving behind a smooth, sleek, naturally-beautiful body without interrupting your busy schedule!

Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss

It is important to remember that these procedures are not intended as a weight loss mechanisms, and weight gain is possible after treatment. It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS. The number of fat cells in our bodies are there at birth.  Losing or gaining weight  does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells. After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger. Technologies like CoolSculpting® actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas. These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.

While the fat reduction from these procedures is permanent, it is still possible for the remaining fat cells to increase in size should you gain weight. For this reason, it is important to continue to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle to maintain your results long-term. While After your treatment, you may not weigh less, but you'll look thinner. And, your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better!
