Fat reduction and skin tightening with Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction that can treat the face, neck and body. It combines radiofrequency technology with pulse magnetic fields to produce noninvasive skin tightening and fat reduction. Jennifer Walden, a board-certified plastic surgeon from Austin, TX explains the treatment options with this new noninvasive, hand-held medical device.

Treatment time and frequency depends on each individual person and the area being treated. The face and neck take an average of 6 treatments at 15-30 minutes for best results, while the body may take around 8 treatments at 30-40 minutes each.

For the face, you can expect to see tightening of the skin and neck area, decreasing of the folds around your mouth and increased definition in the jaw. If you have Venus Freeze on the body you can see skin tightening, but also fat reduction up to about an inch around the waist.

Liposuction is still the gold standard for body contouring, but this is a great option for those who are not ready for surgery, cannot undergo a surgical procedure for health reasons or just need some minimal contouring.
