Are you looking to remove fat and cellulite from your body while tightening your skin? Venus Freeze is a body contouring treatment that not only reduces unwanted deposits of fat but also tightens and firms the skin by inducing collagen production. At Pearl MD Rejuvenation in Toronto, ON we can rejuvenate your skin and help you lose unwanted fat with this non-surgical treatment.
What Is the Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze is a body contouring treatment from Venus Treatments. The treatment uses an FDA cleared device to smooth and contour the body with multipolar radiofrequency energy, resulting in firm, tight skin. Recovery time associated with the treatment is minimal and no invasive surgery is involved. The treatment actually heats the fat and tissue, despite the name “freeze,” and feels comparable to a heated massage.
How It Works
Patients will begin their treatment journey with a consultation with Dr. Jennifer Pearlman. When the treatment is determined to be the best course of action, we can schedule a treatment session. No anesthetic is needed before the treatment, and the handheld device from Venus Treatments is used to perform body contouring in the target location.
The device uses multipolar radiofrequency energy combined with magnetic pulse fields to heat fat cells and eliminate them. The treatment device also works to tighten and rejuvenate the skin, unlike many other body contouring treatments. Collagen and elastin production is increased by the treatment, making the skin firm and reducing elasticity. After the treatment, patients can return to their normal routine without interruption.
Is It Safe?
The technology used in Venus Freeze is FDA cleared for safe body contouring. The treatment is painless, and most patients find the treatment comfortable, comparing the sensation to a warming massage. No surgery or liposuction is required to achieve results from treatment, and patients will not experience any downtime after the treatment. Patients may even be able to complete their treatment session during a lunch break. The treatment will not cause scarring and is safe for all skin tones.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?
The treatment is safe enough to target skin and fat on the neck and face, making it perfect for eliminating a “double chin” and rejuvenating the face. The treatment can also safely tighten the skin and eliminate fat from the abdomen, flanks, thighs, bra strap area, and upper arms. Patients can lose inches of body fat, making clothing fit more comfortably without diet and exercise.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Venus Freeze is a safe body sculpting treatment for patients of all skin types, ages, and genders. Patients who do not have the time for treatments with longer recovery times, such as liposuction, can enjoy the treatment over lunch breaks. The treatment reduces fat without lasers or surgery, so it is safe for everyone.
Patients should inform Dr. Pearlman of any medication they are taking and any other treatments, like IPL or chemical peels, they have recently undergone as these could affect the treatment quality. The treatment is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.
How Long Do Results Last?
Patients will see improvements after their first session, and when the treatment is completed the results can be long-lasting. The duration of the results depends on the patient’s lifestyle and skin condition, but most patients see improved results for three months following their last treatment session.
For long-lasting results, we recommend coming back for a touch-up treatment at the beginning of each season for a total of four touch-up sessions per year. Some patients may desire more frequent treatments to gain greater benefits. Patients who live a healthy lifestyle and avoid sun exposure will have the best and longest-lasting benefits.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Each session takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. For patients with a smaller treatment area, the time will be on the lower end. For patients looking for a full-body treatment, the treatment time may be closer to 40 minutes. A typical face or neck treatment requires around six quick sessions. Full body treatments may require eight sessions to reach a patient’s desired results.
During the treatment session, a patient’s comfort is our priority. Many patients are comfortable enough to read a book, nap, or pass the time with a mobile device. There is no downtime after the treatment, so patients can easily return to work immediately with no pain or discomfort.
Preparing for Your First Session
Patients will be asked to refrain from shaving the day of the treatment and avoid IPL, chemical peels, injectable fillers, intense exfoliation, and waxing for two to four weeks before the treatment. Products containing retinol and glycolic acid may also need to be avoided. It is important that patients maintain hydration before and after each session, so patients should take in the recommended amount of water the day before and the day of the treatment. Patients will not need to follow a specialized diet or workout plan to achieve their body contouring results before or after treatment.
