There are dozens of options when it comes to treatments that tighten the skin and reduce fine lines. One of these, Venus Freeze, uses radio frequency energy to heat the skin, tighten it, and stimulate collagen production, diminishing wrinkles, fine lines, and cellulite in the process. Venus Legacy can provide similar results while reducing fat as well. To determine which one is right for you, consider your beauty goals and read on for more information about these treatments.
What is Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze is a gentle, safe procedure that takes between 15 and 30 minutes per session and requires no downtime. A technician will use a handheld device to gently massage the treatment area, and you will feel an even, gradually warming sensation throughout the process. The heat will gradually increase, though the technician can bring it back down if necessary, so don’t be shy about speaking up. Patients typically require between six and eight sessions, spaced one or two weeks apart, per area targeted to see sufficient results. There is no recovery, downtime, or aftercare needed, though the skin in the treatment area may appear slightly flushed and warm for up to two hours.
Venus Freeze helps the skin appear smoother, and more youthful by reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and cellulite. Final results appear three to four months after the last session, as the skin will continue to tighten while collagen production increases. With regular maintenance appointments, patients can continue seeing results for months after that.
The Venus Legacy can often be the best choice for people seeking to tighten their skin and lose fat, by using this one convenient method for both. It uses the same handheld device as Venus Freeze, but this treatment activates the optional pulsed suction on the device, which gently pulls the skin in and allows the energy emitted to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers and heat the underlying fat. This damages the fat cells and helps your body get rid of them. As with Venus Freeze, Venus Legacy treatments take between six and eight sessions to show results.
Venus Legacy has all of the benefits of Venus Freeze while also reducing fat. This makes it an ideal choice for women who want to target specific areas for sculpting in addition to wrinkle reduction and skin tightening. Rather than undergoing two separate treatments for the same results, Venus Legacy packages both in one fast, safe, and convenient treatment. Venus Legacy does not have any downtime or recovery time after receiving the treatment which will allow you to save time and money.
The treatment can also be used on multiple areas of the body. While Venus Freeze is typically recommended for the face only, as removing fat from the face can reduce the appearance of youthful skin, Venus Legacy can be used on other areas to improve tightness and appearance, depending on the location chosen. This makes it a particularly popular choice for those seeking one simple treatment to meet their beauty goals, as you can quickly and easily touch up multiple target areas in one appointment without needing to schedule more time away from your daily routine.
Who Is Eligible for Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy?
Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy are recommended for people who have good skin tone with a small amount of laxity, which allows the skin to comfortably plump just enough to fill in fine lines after collagen production increases. The treatment is also suitable for all skin colors. You should not receive a Venus Freeze or Venus Legacy treatment if you have an uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder, active inflammation or infection in the target area, are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you would prefer a one-time treatment, as both require several visits. If you’re not sure whether Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy are right for you, consult a medical esthetician and your doctor before scheduling a treatment appointment. You may be able to achieve similar results through a different treatment that is better suited to your health and medical needs if necessary.
