Heard about Venus freeze but unsure what it is and how it can benefit you? Learn all about Venus Freeze here!
Venus Freeze is a non-surgical, non invasive technology that uses radio frequency technology to boost collagen production.
As we age, collagen — the protein that makes up connective tissue— begin to break down. This is accompanied with a reduction in elasticity. Venus freeze acts to heat the deeper layers of tissue under the skin’s surface. This process not only promotes collagen production, it also helps to firm skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and give you that ever-elusive youthful glow.
Frequently asked questions:
What makes a good candidate?
Ideal candidates for Venus Freeze are people who have lost some elasticity in their skin and are showing signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.
Will this treatment work on pigmented skin?
Yes! Because Venus Freeze uses radio frequency technology, it’s safe to use on darker complexions.
How long does it take?
Venus Freeze is non-invasive, and can be done in under 30 minutes. And since there’s no down time, you can have it done on your lunch break or between errands!
How long until I see results?
It usually takes between 6 and 8 treatments (between 6 and 8 weeks) at the site to see results.
How should I prepare?
The best thing you can do to prepare for your treatment is to keep the area clean, making sure there’s no lotion or makeup on the skin.
