For many patients, Venus Freeze™ skin tightening treatments are a great alternative to liposuction, and they’re designed to melt away the fat from your body. Although the underlying science is a bit more complex, this is the best way to describe how the procedure works.
To melt the fat from your body, Venus Freeze™ uses radiofrequency energy and pulsed magnetic fields to uniformly heat the tissue under your skin. Fortunately, the technology monitors temperature and eliminates the risk of getting burned.
Once the collagen fibers within your skin begin to heat up, you’ll notice smoothing and tightening of the skin. Unlike some alternative options, Venus Freeze™ skin tightening treatments are considered to be comfortable and non-invasive. It’s not uncommon for patients to compare the experience to getting a hot massage.
How Does Venus Freeze™ Tighten Skin?
The Venus Freeze™ skin tightening procedure uses two different technologies to tighten your skin. With the help of multipolar radiofrequency energy, the procedure creates a thermal reaction within your skin tissue, and the reaction is what triggers your body’s natural healing response.
To heal the thermal damage, your body starts producing new collagen and elastin, and the existing collagen within your skin contracts. The results from the treatment will leave you with firmer, tighter skin. The procedure also causes elastin fibers to unravel, which will give your skin an elastic appearance.
By elevating the temperature of your skin to a specific level, the treatment achieves natural body contouring. The procedure causes your body to release stress hormones, and the hormones attach to the receptors on your fat cells.
After the stress hormones have attached to your fat cells, they activate a specific type of hormone which is responsible for breaking apart triglycerides and converting them into free fatty acids. Over time, the fatty acids leave the fat cells, which reduces the volume of the cells. This process leaves your body with a contoured, smoother shape.
What Makes Venus Freeze™ Skin Tightening Different?
There are many other treatment options for body contouring and skin tightening that use radiofrequency energy, so you might be wondering what makes Venus Freeze™ different from the rest. The major difference is the multipolar head that the treatment uses to deliver RF energy into your body.
Since the RF energy flows between each head, it’s able to efficiently heat the deepest layers of your skin, and it uses less energy to accomplish this goal. As a result of the multipolar head, you get higher temperatures at the treatment sites, which provides better overall results.
The other major difference is the magnetic pulse technology, and many other procedures don’t use this technology. The magnetic pulse is effective for stimulating fibroblasts and improving recovery time.
Venus Freeze™ has been cleared by the FDA, and it’s regularly used for skin tightening and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. If you’re looking for tighter skin and don’t want to undergo invasive surgery, you could benefit from these treatments. Make an appointment at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach to learn more.
