Thermage and Venus Freeze are non-surgical skin tightening methods that use radio waves to stimulate collagen production and tighten sagging skin, but Venus Freeze also incorporates magnetic pulse therapy. Venus Freeze requires multiple sessions, whereas Thermage is a single treatment.
Thermage stimulates skin's deepest layers with unipolar radiofrequency energy, stimulating collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein that promotes skin elasticity. Thermage is safe for the body and face, including the eye area. Thermage body treatments reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin, and facial treatments lift sagging areas and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Eye treatments firm and refine the texture of the eyelids and surrounding skin.
Most patients only require one Thermage treatment and require little or no recovery time. Oral analgesics such as acetominophen and oxycodone prevent discomfort during the procedure.
Venus Freeze treatments feature a combination of multi-polar radiofrequency energy and magnetic pulses. Over time, the treatments encourage collagen production, promote elastin fiber development, tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and minimize cellulite. Venus Freeze also provides non-invasive body sculpting. The treatments are painless.
Venus Freeze sessions last 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the targeted body area. Results usually appear after six facial treatments, eight neck treatments or 10 body treatments.
