Venus Freeze Method
When patients turn to our Chicago cosmetic surgery center they are typically looking for a fast, pain-free, and subtle way to eliminate cellulite, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and tighten their skin without the long recovery associated with surgery. We strive to offer the latest procedures to give our patients access to the greatest selection of treatments and procedures to help them get the outcome they want. One of the latest options is the Venus Freeze Method of encouraging skin and tissue regeneration.
What is the Venus Freeze?
This procedure is an innovative method of reducing cellulite, toning the body, and erasing wrinkles. It uses radio frequencies and pulsed magnetic fields in order to heat up the collagen and tissues. This heat stimulates the production of collagen and increases blood flow to the treated area. The Venus Freeze procedure is safe, quick, and painless, giving you the best results without having to undergo surgery. We can treat your entire face and body in as little as an hour with no downtime. In fact, our Chicago patients can resume their normal activity immediately after their procedure.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated With the Venus Freeze Method?
Venus Freeze can be used on all parts of the body. However, the areas of the body that get the best results include the abdomen, thighs, neck, face, arms, and buttocks. This treatment is effective at removing cellulite by tightening the skin and creating a firmer, more youthful appearance to the thighs, legs, buttocks, and other areas affected by cellulite. In addition to eliminating cellulite, it is also an anti-aging treatment to reduce wrinkles around the forehead, mouth, eyes and other parts of the face and body. Venus Freeze can be an excellent option for new mothers. New mothers often struggle to restore their body to the way it was before pregnancy. Diet and exercise can often help, but sometimes it’s not enough to firm the skin that became loose during pregnancy. Because this treatment tightens the skin and can reduce stretch marks, it is an excellent postpartum solution.
About Venus Freeze Treatments
The Venus Freeze treatment is performed while the patient is lying down on one of our comfortable treatment beds in Chicago. We apply a glycerin gel to the skin and then gently slide the applicator across the skin’s surface. Many patients report this procedure feels similar to receiving a massage with the use of a warming gel. The treatment process is gentle, fast and pain-free and is often completed in an hour. After the procedure is complete, you will feel a warm sensation, not cold as the name would imply. Your skin may appear pink for a short period of time but should return to normal within an hour. When you leave our Chicago office, you will feel relaxed and shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort.
Once the Venus Freeze treatment is complete you should notice softened wrinkles, tighter skin, reduced cellulite, and improved body contours. However, these results may require three treatments to be fully noticeable. Most patients require six to 10 treatments to achieve the optimal results with appointments scheduled approximately a week apart. You can maintain your results by undergoing a Venus Freeze four times per year. Some patients prefer monthly sessions for the best results.
Is Venus Freeze Safe?
Venus Freeze is FDA approved to treat facial wrinkles and is proven to be extremely safe. In fact, it has a lower risk factor than other methods, such as liposuction. The use of radio frequencies and magnetic pulses is not new in the medical field. They have been used for years for healing wounds, fusing bones, and treating pain. Because Venus Freeze doesn’t use lasers or harsh lights, it is safe on every skin type, including fair skin.
