Frequently Asked Questions
How does Venus Freeze work?
This revolutionary Venus Freeze’s (MP)2 technology uses a dense energy matrix which penetrates multiple layers of skin, heating uniformly from the inside out. The blood flow in the treated area is improved, enhancing the skin’s tone and texture. Vitamins, minerals, and oxygen are carried more easily to the cells, and toxins and waste materials are removed.
Skin tightening is another result of the Venus Freeze treatment, as tiny new blood vessels are formed in the treatment areas and dermal fibroblasts are created; fibroblasts then increase the number of collagen and elastin fibers. New collagen and elastin creation results in tighter skin and filling in of wrinkles/wrinkle reduction.
What will the results be?
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 tighter skin.
What happens during the procedure?
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. The sensation is absolutely pleasant and warm. In fact, most patients nap or just simply relax during the treatment. Afterwards you will be relaxed and the area will feel warm. Sometimes there is a slight pinkness to the skin. The warmth and pinkness will not last longer than an hour and most often has been described as a glow to the skin.
How safe is the treatment?
Venus Freeze promotes natural skin healing without injuring delicate skin. Venus Freeze synthesizers combine 8 energy waves into a single matrix to effectively reduce temperature peaks. The treatment is so safe that there is no need for cooling gels or sprays. With no downtime, Venus Freeze allows you to resume daily activities immediately after your treatment.
How long does a typical treatment take?
Venus Freeze features the OctiPolar 24cm2 treatment area for faster coverage than any other standard hand-piece. Treatment times are up 4 times faster, hence you will spend between 15 minutes for a facial treatment and up to 40 minutes for a body treatment.
Is there any downtime? Can I do a treatment at lunch and return to work right away?
There is no downtime with Venus Freeze. It is a perfect treatment to have during a lunch hour, you can apply makeup, workout, or be in the sun right after if you like.
When will I 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. Maximum benefit is not achieved until all treatments are completed. Patients continue to see an improvement in their skin and treated area up to three months after the series of treatments are complete.
Are the results permanent?
After your Venus Freeze treatment series you will require maintenance treatments to ensure that you keep the aging process at bay. While the minimum treatments needed to maintain your result are one treatment once every season (4 treatments a year), we find that many patients like to come back as often as once a month because they love the treatments and the results.
