Firm Your Body with Venus Freeze - Boise

venus freeze boiseRadiofrequency and ultrasound have long been used in the world of aesthetics to treat skin issues from laxity to cellulite, however, with each new year it seems there is a new machine promising better results and less discomfort.

The machine that Dr. Kerr and our aestheticians are specifically excited about is the Venus Freeze Treatment. It's probably one of the more popular non-invasive firming and lifting treatments that we have seen in this office in a long time.

So how does it work? It's a hand-held device that uses radio-wave energy to heat the skin, which causes the tissue being treated to contract and firm, while magnets stimulate new collagen and elastin for long term benefits.

The best part is, this particular machine works on all body parts from the face, to the belly and thighs, to lift and firm saggy skin. It only takes about half an hour for each area. Benefits can't be seen immediately after the first treatment dues to temporary swelling of the skin, but when done in two to four week intervals, full results can be seen. 

The treatment, which feels more like a hot stone massage than a cosmetic procedure, requires no healing or recovery time and after the first treatment, the skin looks pink and radiant. 

While this treatment can be done to tighten and firm the skin of anyone from the age of 18 to 80, it's full effectiveness is best seen on patients in their early 30s to mid-40s since the skin at that age is better prone to tightening. One benefit to doing these [radiofrequency] treatments at an earlier age is that you’ll see more of a reward sooner.

Is it permanent?

Venus Freeze is not maintenance free, but the effects are long lasting. After your Venus Freeze treatment series you will require maintenance treatments to ensure that you keep the aging process at bay. While the minimum treatments needed to maintain your result are one treatment once every season (4 treatments a year), we find that many patients like to come back as often as once a month because they love the treatments and the results. Discuss with your treatment provider what the best treatment plan is for your skin.

Is it cold?

Contrary to the name, Venus Freeze is not cold at all. In fact, it can feel like a hot stone massage!

Is there any pain involved?

None! In fact, most patients nap or just simply relax during the treatment.  The sensation is absolutely pleasant and warm.  You can watch a few patient testimonials here.

How soon will I see results?

Many patients report improvement after one treatment, but typically most patients see more of a result in as little as three treatments.

Try Venus Freeze for only $99 for your first treatment! 

Does it really work?

Absolutely yes.  We only use before and after photos of real patients with typical results. Many of our staff members have  gone through or are currently doing Venus Freeze treamtents themselves. Feel free to call us with any questions or concerns.

Because there is no pain or downtime, you can resume your normal daily routine and be on your way to fitting into those pre-baby jeans while respecting your new mommy’s budget.

It is designed for patients who have a Body Mass Index of less than 30 and have a commitment to living a healthy lifestyle.  

What areas can I have treated with Venus Freeze?

Venus Freeze is designed to treat the entire body and face, however most new Moms prefer to focus on the abdomen and hips to reduce the size of the post baby pooch as well as the appearance of stretch marks.

What is the treatment frequency and how long does each take?

Each patient has different needs but on average, optimal results can be achieved after 6-8 treatments for the face and after 8-10 treatments for the body. Treatment frequency is once a week and last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes for one area. Most new Moms enjoy having a little “Me Time” in order to relax and get pampered.

How safe is Venus Freeze?

Venus Freeze is safe for all skin types and because there is no downtime, you may resume your normal daily routine right after each treatment. Your physician or clinician will determine if you have any risk factors which will prevent you from being treated.

Celebrity Anti-Aging Secret – Venus Freeze!

Posted by Sara Barrett on Dec 12, 2012 1:55:00 PM

Celebs can’t get enough of it. TV shows such as The Doctors, are raving its results.  Venus Freeze is truly a revolution in anti-aging technologies.  

Unfortunately aging is not something we can control.  The minute we reach maturity, our bodies stop producing the elastin we enjoyed as children.  Without elastin replenishment, collagen starts to weaken. leading to wrinkles and loose skin. This is one of the downsides to aging and sadly, it happens to all of us.

The good news? New innovative treatments are being invented all the time to help fight this aging process. Silk Touch Med Spa and Laser Center of Boise is excited to bring to you one of our newest treatments, Venus Freeze Skin Tightening. This celebrity endorsed anti-aging treatment tightens skin on the face and body, reduces cellulite, reduces wrinkles and provides circumferential reduction on the body.

How does it work?

Venus Freeze works to restore a youthful appearance and reverse the aging process. . Venus Freeze  combines magnetic electrical pulses and Radio Frequency which delivers thermal energy to the deep layers of the skin and its underlying tissue. This deep heating and magnetic pulsing dramatically improves the appearance of the skin and often produces visible results immediately.

Skin Tightening

The breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers as we age causes skin to lose it’s firmness. Often, there is also a loss of fat, which causes skin to voyage downwards – causing skin to start sagging in areas such as eyelids, lower cheeks and neck. This natural aging process and the maturation of the skin is referred to as photo aging.  How can you tell if this process has started? Wrinkled sagging skin or altered skin texture are the tell-tell signs.  

Venus Freeze Skin Tightening can help reverse and correct these processes, leading to healthier, more flexible and attractive skin. The magnetic pulse component of Venus Freeze induces the sprouting of new blood vessels, as well as stimulating the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin fibers, thus offering remarkable skin tightening effect. The skin tightening effects of the Venus Freeze are very enduring, simply because they are based on new connective tissue growth.

The skin tightening attribute of Venus Freeze also helps eliminate wrinkles, too. Since Venus Freeze is non-surgical, you can resume your normal day to day activities without embarrassing bandages, scars, redness or swelling! Plus, a combination of Venus Freeze with a long lasting filler such as Artefill, can turn back time leaving you feeling and looking 10 years younger!

Could your skin use a little tightening? Don’t miss your chance to claim this month’s exclusive Venus Freeze offer.

Cellulite Reduction

While skin tightening is the best attribute of Venus Freeze, it can also be used to fight women’s greatest nemesis – cellulite. No matter the age, size, body type, etc. cellulite is something we all deal with in one way or another. Even the most fit and slender women battle cellulite problems!  Factors such as genetics, hormones, diet, lifestyle and even clothing may contribute to this evil and pesky problem. And up until now, there have been few treatments that help in reducing the appearance of cellulite.

An effective cellulite reduction treatment will increase collagen production, reduce fat mass and improve dermal blood circulation. Venus Freeze treatments work to effectively reduce cellulite with proven scientific results.

Venus Freeze uniformly and intensively heats the sub dermis layer of skin where cellulite is located. The deep penetrating heat is applied to fat bundles to produce new collagen formation and stimulate blood circulation, all of which reduce the appearance of cellulite almost immediately. Just look at the difference in this before and after photo below:

The development of Venus Freeze required considerable clinical trials and investigation to establish the ideal considerations that would ensure optimal safety and efficacy.

More info on the FREEZE From American Health and Beauty:

What Is Venus Freeze?

Venus Freeze’s unique (MP)² Technology offers facial rejuvenation without surgery. FDA cleared for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and facial rhytides, the Venus Freeze device can target all 3 layers of skin: epidermis, dermis and hypodermis to treat signs of aging. We now are able to do additional areas of the body with the new Venus Freeze body handpiece! 

How does Venus Freeze Work?

By combining Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PMF) and Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the Venus Freeze may increase the production of collagen and elastin in skin while keeping the epidermis or upper layer of the skin intact and undamaged. As a result, there is no downtime or pain associated with this treatment. While results are visible after immediately following the treatment, final results will continue to get better as Venus Freeze promotes the body’s own collagen to re-grow.

Currently, the device is only FDA cleared for wrinkle reduction but according to the manufacturer, Venus Concept, the Venus Freeze may also be used on the body for circumference reduction, cellulite improvement, and skin tightening. Patients report that the Venus Freeze treatment is painless and feels like a warm massage and since there is no downtime, they can return to normal activities immediately post treatment.

How Much Does Venus Freeze Cost?

The cost of Venus Freeze depends on the size of the area being treated (on the face or body) and how many treatments are recommended to achieve maximum results. Depending on geographic location of the practice and varying from market to market, treatment cost begins at $500 per session.

What Are The Risks Of Venus Freeze?

Venus Freeze is completely non-surgical and non-invasive so there is very little risks associated with the treatments.
