Venus Freeze is here! This is the latest machine to help you look younger. Best of all, it is painless!
How Can Venus Freeze Help You?
Dr. Carolyn Mai is the first physician to perform Venus Freeze on Oahu. Venus Freeze ® or (MP)2 is a revolutionary, non-invasive skin tightening and body contouring solution that can be used on the face, neck, and body. The treatment uses radio frequency (RF) technology combined with pulsed magnetic fields that gives off a warm, deep heat. There is no “freezing” of the skin, but the machine in a sense does “freeze” time. The magnetic pulse and radiofrequency energies work together to effectively deliver wonderful clinical results.
How does it work?
This new technology combines Pulse Magnetic fields and RF. The Pulse Magnetic fields increase growth agents responsible for the creation of minute blood vessels and the proliferation of dermal fibroblasts. Concurrently, RF induces controlled thermal damage in the dermis which in turn stimulates the self-repair mechanisms of skin tissue. The body then regenerates more collagen which gives your skin a smoother, more youthful glow.
Lipolysis (MP)2 increases tissue temperature and thereby breaks down triglycerides located in fat cells. The free fatty acids are released into the blood stream resulting in a significant volume reduction in fat cells. This enhanced biological process leads to measurable circumferential reduction and smoothes cellulite. Basically, we are shrinking the fat cells.
Blood Circulation (MP)2 improves blood flow in the treated area, enhancing overall skin condition. Improving dermal circulation supplies more vitamins, minerals and oxygen to skin cells, simultaneously removing toxins and waste materials.
Collagen and Elastic Restructuring (MP)2 modifies the ultra structure of collagen fibers making them thicker and shorter, increasing skin tightness. At the same time new fibroblasts increase the number of collagen and elastin fibers improving skin tightness and elasticity resulting in wrinkle reduction.
What Areas can be treated with Venus Freeze?
The face, neck and body can all be treated with Venus Freeze. There are 2 treatment heads. One is smaller for the face to target the collagen fibers and the other is larger for the body to target the fat cells. You can treat just about anywhere. I have already treated the fat bulge in front of the armpit and above the bra line with great success.
This skin tightening procedure heats the dermis layer of the skin with infrared light at a depth of 1 to 2 mm below the skin’s surface and extends the heating depth an additional 1 to 4 mm with bipolar radiofrequency. Collagen fibers in the dermis immediately contract.
You will feel tighter and firmer skin.
Skin Tightening will also stimulate collagen synthesis. Thus, you will continue to see improvement in the next 3-6 months when your body makes more collagen.
Most patients require 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about every 3 to 4 weeks. More sessions may be needed for aged skin.
The procedure is well tolerated, and no anesthesia is required. It feels like rubber band snaps.
You can resume your normal activity immediately after the treatment.
