The Venus Freeze™ is an FDA approved, popular and painless, non-invasive skin tightening technology. We are excited about the results our patients are achieving, especially on arms, jawlines, abdomen and legs, including cellulite reduction. This technology has also proved effective in reducing post-surgical swelling, especially with abdominoplasty and liposuction patients. This technology also lends itself well to skin tightening and toning performed during Mommy Makeovers. Read and watch more as patients share their experiences with Venus Freeze™ skin tightening.
The Venus Freeze™ has been receiving tremendous positive press across a multitude of media channels including television, news and radio, for its skin tightening and cellulite reduction capabilities. Venus Freeze™ treatments succeed at tightening skin in the face, neck and entire body. Many patients experience firmer skin, softening of wrinkles and a more youthful appearance. Body treatments show reduced cellulite and a more contoured figure.
How Does it Work?
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occurs with Venus Freeze™ by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively to the patient.
The multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. That restoring response causes new collagen to form, and the production of new elastin fibres. The active collagen in the skin contracts, causing skin to look and feel firmer and the elastin fibers unravel making the skin appear more elastic.
Body contouring is achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, the body releases stress hormones. These hormones pass through the bloodstream, and attach themselves to specific receptors on the membrane of the fat cell in the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin). The stress hormone, once attached to the receptor, activates the hormone sensitive lipase – the hormone that is in charge of breaking down triglycerides into free fatty acids. The free fatty acids exit the fat cell through the blood stream, and the volume of the fat cell is thus reduced giving you a smoother, more contoured shape.
Before & After
Frequently Asked Questions
Treatments take anywhere from 20-40 minutes depending on the area/areas being treated, and are performed in our laser treatment room by Aesthetic Medical Technicians Nikki and Shawnie.
As you lay on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to the skin which helps the applicator glide on the surface of your skin. The technician will use an applicator head to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin. The treatment feels like a warm massage and is not uncomfortable or painful.
Depending on the individual patient problem areas and desired outcome, 4-8 treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the optimal results. Recommended treatments can be done weekly or two times a week.
There is no downtime for Venus Freeze™ treatments, and you can resume normal activities immediately. However, you might have some slight redness in the areas that were treated which is normal and should go away within a couple of hours.
You should begin seeing results after the second treatment, although some patients report improvement after one treatment. The underlying processes taking place beneath the skin begin work immediately, but are often not fully visible for weeks.
The results are permanent, but we continue to age, and we recommend maintenance treatments every six months or a year to maintain the results.
During your consultation, one of our experienced Medical Technicians/Estheticians will go over whether Venus Freeze™, or other skin tightening technologies would be right for you. In the meantime you can ask yourself some preliminary questions to consider getting the treatments done.
