Frequently Asked Questions
Learn more about Venus Freeze Treatments and how it delivers fast, effective and pain-free results...
What is the Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze is a device used to treat wrinkles, rhytides, tighten skin, reduce cellulite and circumferential fat. Using (MP)≤ technology, this device delivers multi-polar radio frequency and magnetic pulsed fields to the skin to produce a dense and uniform heat matrix. This causes collagen synthesis and contraction, fibroblast proliferation, neo-vascularity and lipolysis.
What makes Venus Freeze different from other treatments?
There is no pain, no downtime and reliable results.
What kind of results can you get from a Venus Freeze treatment?
Tighter skin, softening of wrinkles, plumper, fuller and more youthful appearance, reduced cellulite and a more contoured silhouette.
How successful are the treatments?
Most patients see a result in as little as three treatments however, we advise a full series of six treatments for the face and eight to ten treatments on the body. We recommend that you maintain your result with a Venus treatments once a month.
When can I expect to see results?
Patients begin to see results typically in three treatments but we advise that they complete the series of six, eight or ten to see the full results. Patients continue to see an improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
Is there any pain or discomfort involved?
None! In fact, most patients nap or just simply relax during the treatment. The sensation is pleasant and warm. You can watch a few testimonials here.
How safe are the treatments and are there any contraindications or side effects?
Radio Frequency and magnetic pulses have been used for many years in medicine and are proven, safe technologies. There are no side effects other than looking terrific and the contraindications are standard with all treatments. Your treatment provider will review your medical history and your aesthetic goals to see if Venus Freeze is the right treatment for you.
What is it like to have a treatment?
As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to the skin. This lotion helps the applicator glide on the surface of your skin. The correct size applicator is selected and the treatment provider will then begin to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin. This feels like a wonderful warm massage. We encourage our patients to close their eyes and take this time to just relax and enjoy the quiet and focused time for them.
How does the Venus technology work?
Venus (MP)2 works by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively to the patient.
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal response in the tissue which activates the body`s natural healing response. That healing response causes new collagen to form, new elastin fibers and the production of fibroblasts to increase. The existing collagen in the skin contracts (this causes the skin to look and feel firmer) and the elastin fibers unravel (which makes the skin more elastic).
Body contouring is achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, the body releases stress hormones. These hormones pass through the blood stream, 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 ñ 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.
