Caring for your skin is a serious matter and you deserve to have all the information before deciding to try anything new. We are passionate about skincare and making you feel beautiful. Here we have gathered answers to the most frequently asked questions about Venus Freeze treatments, from leading physicians in North America and Worldwide.
What Is Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze treatments use pulsed magnetic fields and radio frequency to consistently and uniformly heat the skin from the inside out, without the threat of laser burns. The collagen fibres heat up resulting in skin tightening to attain exceptional results.
Venus Freeze treatments are non-invasive and painless, with many patients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage! The treatment is also very quick and effortless– only 15 minutes for the face and 40 minutes for the body. You will love the results when you see them, scroll down for more exciting information and to see if Venus Freeze is right for you.
How does the science behind Venus Freeze work?
Venus Freeze (MP)² works by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively to the patient.
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal response in the tissue which activates the body`s natural healing response. That healing response causes new collagen to form, new elastin fibers and the production of fibroblasts to increase. The existing collagen in the skin contracts (this causes the skin to look and feel firmer) and the elastin fibers unravel (which makes the skin more elastic).
Body contouring is achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, the body releases stress hormones. These hormones pass through the blood stream, and attach themselves to specific receptors on the membrane of the fat cell 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.
How It Works:
Venus Freeze works by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively to the patient.
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. That restoring response causes new collagen to form, and the production of new elastin fibres. The active collagen in the skin contracts, causing skin to look and feel firmer and the elastin fibers unravel making the skin appear more elastic.
Who Are The Treatments For?
The Venus Freeze treatments are for anyone who feels that their appearance could be slightly improved by skin tightening. Venus Freeze works exceptionally well for mothers looking to eradicate saggy skin post-pregnancy.

Venus Freeze treatments succeed at tightening skin in the face, neck and entire body. Many patients experience firmer skin, softening of wrinkles and a more youthful appearance. Body treatments show reduced cellulite and a more contoured figure.
Is it safe?
Venus Freeze is Cleared by the FDA for Facial Wrinkles and Rhytides and Licensed by Health Canada for non-invasive treatment of temporary cellulite and temporary skin tightening. The Venus Freeze system has been the subject of numerous clinical trials by trained physicians and researchers. In a Canadian study of 15 subjects, three groups of patients were treated for eight weeks: one for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction around the neck and face; one for circumference reduction in the abdomen and hips; and the remainder for cellulite reduction. Among the first group, all patients showed moderate to significant decrease in wrinkles. The second pack posted an average shrinkage of 3.1 cm in the abdomen/hip area, and all members posted a dip in circumference. For the third portion, 75 percent of the subjects finished up with noticeable and satisfactory improvement in the appearance of their cellulite. The treatments went well, with no reports of serious pain or agitation and no major complications.

How successful are the treatments?
Most patients see a result in as little as three treatments however, we advise a full series of six treatments for the face and eight to ten treatments on the body to obtain optimal results.
Is there any pain or discomfort 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.
Are there any contraindications or side effects?
Radio Frequency and magnetic pulses have been used for many years in medicine and are proven, safe technologies. There are no side effects other than looking terrific and the contraindications are standard with all treatments. Your Venus Freeze treatment provider will review your medical history and your aesthetic goals to see if Venus Freeze is the right treatment for you.
How many treatments do I need?
To obtain optimal results, we recommend 6 treatments for the face or neck, and 8 to 10 for the body. It is not uncommon that patients continue to see an improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
Is everyone a good candidate for Venus Freeze?
Yes, unless there is a contraindication which your technician has advised you otherwise. Realistic expectations and a desire to look better are all you need.
How do I maintain the results?
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.
What makes Venus Freeze different from other treatments?
Venus Freeze is the only treatment that offers superior clinical results without any pain or discomfort whatsoever, and with literally no downtime. That means that you can go back to work right after your treatment looking as beautiful as you feel.

Relaxed and the area will feel warm. Sometimes there is a slight pinkness to the skin. The warmth and pinkness will not last longer than an hour and most often has been described as a glow to the skin.
Are the results real?
Very real. We only use before and after photos of real patients with typical results.
What is it like to have a treatment?
As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to the skin. This lotion helps the applicator glide on the surface of your skin. The correct size applicator is selected and the treatment provider will then begin to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin. This feels like a wonderful warm massage. We encourage our patients to close their eyes and take this time to just relax and enjoy the quiet and focused time for them.
What do I need to do to prepare before a treatment?
Absolutely nothing. Bring a pillow as you might fall asleep!
Is there any downtime? Can I do a treatment at lunch and return to work right away?
Absolutely! A treatment to one area takes less than 30 minutes and you can apply makeup or suntan right after if you like.
