Tighter, Smoother Skin with Venus RF Treatments
Venus RF Skin Tightening: What is it and How Does it Work?
You’ve probably heard the buzzword “Radio Frequency” floating around in the medispa-sphere. But what exactly is it and why is it so popular? Learn how Venus RF Skin Tightening with Radio Frequency (RF) can help your skin look firmer and more youthful in just eight weeks.
How Venus RF Tightens Skin
Radio Frequency is just a fancy word for heat. But something magical happens when therapeutic heat energy is delivered into the skin at just the precise temperature and depth. Dramatic changes happen to the dermis and epidermis that can impact your skin in a positive way. Let’s look at the science of Venus technology and how it works to tighten, plump, and firm up the skin’s appearance.
Radio Frequency doesn’t act alone. The device combines Multi-Polar RF with Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to reverse the visible signs of aging. As the deeper skin tissues heat up, they become “damaged” or “denatured” to use the medically correct term. The body’s response to any kind of damage is to immediately set off a cascade of healing and regenerative events.
One healing response in particular is the body starts to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the treatment area. As new collagen networks and fibers are established, this results it tighter skin, increased epidermal thickness and fewer lines and wrinkles.
Venus RF is ideal to rejuvenate any area of the body that has lost laxity due to aging, sun damage, weight loss or other factors. It can be performed on the the following areas:
- Face – tightens sagging jowls, jawline and wrinkles
- Neck – smooths crepey skin on the neck
- Stomach – tightens loose skin (particularly due to aging, weight loss or pregnancy)
- Arms – firms up crepey, loose and wrinkled skin
- Thighs & Knees – reduces cellulite and wrinkles above the knees and thigh
Is Venus Skin Tightening Right for Me?
Venus RF treatments are a great way to achieve tighter, smoother skin. If you’ve never regained the firmness you had before pregnancy in areas such as tummy or thighs, or you want your clothing to fit a little better, then Venus can help you achieve these goals. Especially with summer right around the corner, a series of treatments can improve your confidence when it comes to wearing that little summer dress or bathing suit.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Venus RF treatments are normally sold in a package of eight. That’s because it takes at least six to eight sessions before you start seeing noticeable results. With each session, you get cumulative improvement as your body repairs and regenerates your collagen. This doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, even after you finish your last session your body continues to build and repair over time.
Does Venus Skin Tightening Hurt?
Most people describe Venus RF treatments as having a relaxing hot stone massage. There is some targeted heat generated by the Venus handpiece; however, your therapist keeps moving it around to prevent any one area from heating up excessively. The best part about this treatment is there’s absolutely no downtime and you can get back to your normal activities immediately.
