How does Venus Freeze work?
Venus Freeze is a non-surgical, fat reduction, skin-tightening and cellulite-improving radiofrequency technology. The external radiofrequency applicator is applied to the contour area of concern and moved back and forth slowly over top of a small layer of ultrasound gel. The oscillating electrical current heats up the skin and soft tissue, stimulating collagen and reducing the fat cell content in the region. The unique octapolar head, consists of 8 bipolar electrodes with the RF current rapidly oscillating 100,000 times per second, creating a unique uniform temperature on the skin and within the fat. Additionally, there is a series of 8 Pulse Magnetic Resonance poles that assists in collagen formation and new blood vessel formation.
How is the Venus Freeze procedure performed?
Venus Freeze fat reduction patients are treated for 20 minutes per zone, once weekly for a series of 6 treatments. During each treatment the skin and subcutaneous tissue is heated to a temperature of 42-45 degrees, comfortably and effectively.
Who is a candidate for Venus Freeze fat reduction and skin tightening?
Candidates for Venus Freeze and other non-invasive radiofrequency body contouring devices in general are those individuals who want to avoid minimally-invasive surgery, such as liposuction, BodyTite™ and SmartLipo™ or VASERLipo™, but still want to achieve body contouring improvements and fat reduction in focal areas of excess fat. Venus Freeze candidates also include those with skin laxity and cellulite that want to tighten loose skin and improve cellulite but avoid more invasive surgical procedures. Contraindications for Venus Freeze and non-ablative radiofrequency bulk heating devices include pregnancy and any inflammatory, infective or cancerous lesions in the area of treatment.
What kind of anesthetic is used during a Venus Freez treatment?
The Venus Freeze radiofrequency treatments are not painful and are well-tolerated and therefore do not require any local anesthesia or topical anesthesia to be performed.
Is the Venus Freeze fat reduction treatment painful?
Patients undergoing Venus Freeze find the non-ablative skin tightening, fat reduction body contouring and cellulite improvements painless; they are reasonably well-tolerated and therefore do not require any local anesthesia or topical anesthesia.
How long does the Venus Freeze radiofrequency program take?
Non-ablative radiofrequency bulk heating soft tissue and fat reduction treatments, including Excelis, BodyFx™, Venus Freeze, Accent®, VelaSmooth™, VelaShape™ and other non-ablative radiofrequency devices that have been developed and perfected by SpaMedica and take approximately 20-30 minutes per zone each treatment and generally require a series of radiofrequency treatments once a week for four to six weeks to achieve the ultimate improvement in body contouring, skin tightening, fat reduction and cellulite smoothening.
How long is the recovery period following Venus Freeze therapy?
There is no recovery following Venus Freeze fat reduction and other radiofrequency treatment devices. There may be some very mild swelling and redness, or erythema, but patients can return to activities of daily living immediately, including high-impact aerobic activity.
Skin Tightening & Wrinkle Reduction
Venus Diamond Polar Facial Skin Tightening™ is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in tightening skin, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Diamond Polar™ uses Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients, and blood to the skin, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction occur because the radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. The active collagen in the skin contracts, achieving a tighter appearance, along with softening of wrinkles and fine lines.
