Skin-tightening VShape treatments rely on a combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency energies to help patients sculpt their bodies while melting away fatty deposits. The procedure, which has been featured on Dr. Oz, targets areas such as the abdomen, backs of the legs, and arms. As a technician glides a specialized hand-piece over the treatment area, the VShape device emits unipolar and bipolar frequencies that disrupt the fat cells just beneath the skin. The disruption causes the cells to release their toxins and fatty contents into the lymphatic system, which processes the materials naturally. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which can give skin a more youthful appearance. To the client, the treatment feels like a warm, relaxing massage.
Results generally include smoother, more contoured skin. Truex Bluex Spa & Salon's technicians are equipped with all four VShape devices, so they can use the smaller, more precise attachments to address wrinkles or sagging skin on the face.
The effects of each VShape treatment are most apparent 48 hours after the appointment. The staff recommends that clients stick to a healthy diet and exercise regimen before and after treatment. Some areas require multiple sessions for optimal results—it takes an average of six treatments for the neck, for example.
In addition to VShape sessions, the spa administers microdermabrasion facials. To clear away the outermost layer of dead skin cells, aestheticians pass over the face with sodium bicarbonate granules, whose round shape ensures gentle exfoliation.
Truex Bluex Spa & Salon
Truex Bluex's med spa promises the most lasting transformations. The spa's custom facials and medical-grade peels refresh complexions, while its lasers halt hair growth and erase unwanted tattoos. To encourage fat-cell reduction, technicians turn to a JuVaShape device that combines ultrasound with select radio frequencies to contour problem areas. Here in Wicker Park, the staff wields all four specialized hand-pieces to tighten skin on the face and body.
With its hair salon and string of manicure stations, Truex Bluex Spa & Salon is nothing less than a comprehensive beauty center—not to mention a common stop for brides before they hit the aisle. The salon's stylists hydrate strands with conditioners and hair masks before crafting looks that flatter their clients' complexions. Not to be outdone, the nail technicians sand away calluses with exfoliating microderm manicures.
