How does V-shape compare to other laser or ultrasound-based skin tightening procedures on anterior thighs?

I was recommended V-shape for treatment of "cottage cheese" appearance and rippling on thighs - the kind that will not respond to Cellfina because it is not round dimples. What is the difference between V-shape and VelaShape? And how does V-shape compare to other laser or ultrasound-based sking tightening procedures like Ultherapy for anterior thighs?

Cellulite removal

Your cellulite problem is a common one. Fortunately, finally there are effective ways to minimize this problem. Perhaps the least invasive one is  Cellfina™. Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. A straightforward solution to cellulite, Cellfina™, combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise, long-lasting results and has a high satisfaction rating on RealSelf. Together with Velashape 3, a non invasive procedure to help "shrink wrap the skin" and further minimize cellulite as a combination treatment is perhaps your best chance for taking care of this tough problem. Cellulaze is also a possible treatment but much more invasive

We just love V-Shape here at NVPS and we have seen outstanding results in Skin tightening cases, stretch mark removal, and contour deformity correction patients. V-Shape is a painless, and in fact, fairly pleasant procedure that is also quite effective. We do have Liposonix but seldom even use it any more. We also have the Profound Micro-Needle RF platform which is amazing. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out. SG
