Skin Tightening

Sagging skin can be hard to deal with, especially since it cannot be easily targeted with diet and exercise alone. Wherever you find it—over the cheekbones, around your chin, under your arms, or along your waistline—loose skin is a struggle. In the past, surgical procedures or injectables have been the go-to solution for skin tightening. Fortunately, that isn’t the case anymore.

Non-surgical radio frequency treatments rejuvenate the appearance of skin by safely and comfortably heating the tissue under the skin’s surface. This triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin, the key building blocks of healthy, youthful skin. The result is effortlessly tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

Venus Versa™ skin tightening treatments work to tighten, plump, and firm up the appearance of skin. The treatment delivers a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields—Venus Concept’s patented (MP)2 technology—to produce therapeutic heat under the skin’s surface, naturally increasing collagen and elastin fibers for visibly more youthful-looking skin.

FEATURES:

  • Advanced radio frequency technology that safely delivers tighter, smoother skin
  • Safe for all skin tones
  • Comfortable treatments with no downtime
  • Quick treatment sessions last no more than 30 minutes

Before the Treatment

The best candidate is someone who is starting to lose elasticity in their skin and is showing early signs of sagging and wrinkles.

For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:

  • Active inflammation and/or infection in the treatment area
  • Current or history of cancer
  • A degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that’s triggered by heat (e.g. herpes)
  • An Internal defibrillator/pacemaker
  • Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area
  • Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
  • Varicose veins
  • Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure
  • Skin-related autoimmune diseases

Silicone implants and/or injections in the area

Yes. Venus Concept’s skin resurfacing treatments use technology that’s safe for all skin tones, even darker ones.

Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes no longer than 30 minutes.

Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.

Treatments are done once a week.

Just make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.

During the Treatment

Each session lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

The applicator will slowly get warmer till your skin reaches the needed temperature and stays within that temperature range. But if you do feel it’s too hot, just let the operator know and they can easily lower the temperature a bit.

Treatments are comfortable. Some say it feels like a relaxing hot stone massage. Some even fall asleep during the treatment.

After the Treatment

If anything, you’ll feel relaxed. The treatment is comfortable and has been compared to a relaxing hot stone massage. Some patients have even fallen asleep while they were getting treated.

The treatments are cumulative. After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve for up to 3-4 months. After that, your face and body continue to age, so maintenance is recommended once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on the person.

Absolutely no downtime. The treatment area may look a little flushed and warm to the touch, but this will go away within 1-2 hours. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.

No, you do not need to do anything after your treatment.

Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment.
