Patients looking for a non-surgical approach to treat unwanted sagging skin in the chin and neck region have a new and effective option. Bowes Dermatology is proud to offer patients the revolutionary Velashape III to address this common concern.

The Velashape III combines bi-polar Radiofrequency, Infrared light energy, and mechanical massage/ vacuum to safely and effectively improve sagging skin in the chin and neck region.

The Velashape III treats the sagging skin along the chin, commonly referred to as "double chin," and contours the area to create a beautiful, natural neckline. With this treatment, patients see a smoother, thinner and more contoured chin and neck.

Velashape III works by reaching a specifically targeted temperature within the skin, causing fibroblasts in the dermis to promote new collagen production and increase in the metabolism of fat.

This increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. Treatments are recommended every other week, with three to five sessions delivering optimal results.

Unlike surgical procedures, this contouring procedure has no recovery or downtime. Patients may return to work and regular activities immediately following the treatment.

There is no need for anesthesia and no surgical incisions are made, therefore there is no risk of surgical scars. Velashape III is safe on all skin types and causes no additional risk to the epidermis, or top-most layer of the skin.

Dr. Leyda Bowes, Medical Director and CEO of Bowes Dermatology, is a world-recognized expert in non-surgical Face and Neck Rejuvenation. "The Velashape III has shown nice measurable results for neck contouring and lifting, and has specially been able to significantly reduce the double-chin area affecting many patients."
