Want to reclaim a more youthful, beautiful you? Rejuvé is excited to share one of the newest anti-aging solutions with our patients: the Venus Freeze. The Venus Freeze is a new, all-in-one aesthetic device that can effectively fight many common complaints, from cellulite and body part circumference to combatting facial wrinkles and tightening the skin on the face. Let us to introduce you to Venus Freeze:
Q: What is the Venus Freeze?
A: Venus Freeze treatments use pulsed magnetic fields and radio frequency (RF) to consistently and uniformly heat your skin from the inside out, without the threat of laser burns. The collagen fibers in your skin heat up, resulting in skin tightening and smoothing. Venus Freeze treatments are non-invasive and painless — some patients compare the sensation to getting a hot-stone massage! The treatment is also very quick and effortless: Each treatment takes only 15 minutes for the face and 25 minutes for the body.
Q: How does Venus Freeze work?
A: Venus Freeze works by incorporating multipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulsed fields — all in one treatment! — to deliver exceptional results. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction happen because the multipolar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. That restoring response causes new collagen to form, and the production of new elastin fibers. The active collagen in the skin contracts, causing your skin to look and feel firmer and the elastin fibers unravel making the skin appear more elastic.
Body contouring is achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, causing the body to release stress hormones. These hormones pass through the blood stream, and attach themselves to specific receptors on the membranes of the fat cells in the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin). The stress hormone, once attached to the receptor, activates the hormone sensitive lipase – the hormone that is in charge of breaking down triglycerides into free fatty acids. The free fatty acids exit the fat cell through the blood stream, and the volume of the fat cell is thus reduced giving you a smoother, more contoured shape.

Q: What is the difference between the Venus Freeze and other devices that use radio frequency?
A: Venus Freeze uses an exciting and new technology that uses a multipolar head to deliver its RF energy. The energy delivered goes between each head, which allows for consistent and efficient heating with less energy. This translates to higher temperatures at the treatment area, delivering better results. It also translates to a more comfortable patient experience, because less energy is needed to achieve a high temperature. In addition, no other RF device is using the magnetic pulse technology which aids in recovery, stimulating fibroblasts which grow new and more collagen and spurring the formation of new blood vessels which aids in the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the skin.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Venus Freeze has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles and rhytides, and the Venus Freeze system has been the subject of numerous clinical trials by trained physicians and researchers. The face, neck, and entire body can be safely treated with the Venus Freeze.
Q: What is a Venus Freeze treatment like?
A: As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to your skin. This gel helps the applicator glide over the surface of your skin. The correct size applicator is selected, and the treatment provider then begins to apply smooth, consistent movements to the targeted treatmentarea. Many patients say this feels like a wonderful, warm massage. You can just close your eyes and relax! In the meantime, the multipolar RF and magnetic pulses are penetrating deep beneath the outer layers of your epidermis, shrinking the fat cells and contouring your body.
Q: Are there side effects? Can I go back to work afterward?
A: There are almost no side effects to the Venus Freeze, and you can go right back to your normal routine. Venus Freeze uses radiofrequency, so there are no concerns for patients who have darker skin because there is no risk for causing increased pigmentation. The area you have had treated will feel warm, and the skin may be slightly pink. This will not last longer than an hour. You can apply makeup or lotion following your Venus Freeze treatment and get right back to work or play!
Q: What kind of results can I expect?
A: Venus Freeze generally gives patients’ faces tighter skin, softening of wrinkles, and a plumper, fuller and more youthful appearance. Body treatments result in reduced cellulite and a more contoured sillhouette.

Q: How much will it cost? How many treatments will I need?
A: Dr. Tang will work with you to decide on the best course of treatment for you, which will determine the cost. Most Venus Freeze patients see results in as little as three treatments, but for optimal results a full series of six treatments (for the face) or eight to ten treatments (for the body) is recommended. It is not uncommon that patients continue to see improvement in their skin for up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Following your initial course of treatments, it is recommended that you return each season (so every three months or so) in order to maintain your youthful appearance.
Q: So how do I know if Venus Freeze is right for me?
A: Dr. Tang will work with you to determine whether you’re a good candidate for Venus Freeze. It is safe, painless, and non-invasive, making Venus Freeze a good choice for many people who want to lose wrinkles and tighten up their skin to get back a fresh, youthful appearance. Venus Freeze treatments can tighten the skin in your face, neck, and entire body. Many patients experience firmer skin, softening of wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance. Those who opt for body treatments find they have less appearance of cellulite and a more contoured figure. Venus Freeze works exceptionally well for mothers looking to eradicate saggy skin post-pregnancy.
