Venus Legacy for Smokers Lines

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Smokers lines, also known as vertical lip lines, are wrinkles around the lips and mouth that can often distract others from the beauty of the lips. Sometimes called "lipstick lines" for lipstick tends to bleed into these fine lines making them more noticeable. These wrinkles are very stubborn, and are a very common problem women and men face as they age. Yet, women are more common to develop these wrinkles because of the structure of their skin is different. The harmful effects of smoking as well as pressing the lips together when you smoke is a large factor in the appearance of these lines around the mouth. However, we suggest our patients Venus Legacy for smokers lines.

What is the difference between Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy?

Both Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy are very similar in treatment. Both treatments utilize Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, to produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. The difference between the treatments is the use of advanced VariPulse technology in Venus Legacy. VariPulse is an adjustable suction feature that gently lifts the skin upward, allowing for deeper penetration of energy into the skin to further stimulate lymphatic drainage and healthy circulation.

What are Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy treatments like?

Many patients compare their experience to a relaxing hot stone massage. At the beginning of the treatment a gel will be applied to the skin to help the applicator glide more easily, increasing the comfort of the treatment. As you relax, the applicator glides over the area being treated with smooth, consistent movements. During both treatments you will begin to feel a heat that gradually increases until a comfortable and effective temperature is reached, during Venus Legacy treatments along with the gradual heating sensation you will also feel a comfortable pulsating suction.

How can you use Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy for Smokers Lines?

At WellMedica we provide both Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy for smokers lines. Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy work to reduce the appearance of smoker's lines because the treatments involve Multi-Polar Radio Frequency which stimulates the body's natural healing response by causing a thermal reaction within the tissue. The healing response causes the stimulation of new collagen to form, while also increasing the production of new elastin fibers and fibroblasts - resulting in a the appearance of tighter, more smooth skin.

How many treatments does it take?

You can expect to see results as the treatments progress. The number of treatment sessions typically depends on the area being treated. A minimum of six treatments is usually recommended for the face, and eight for other parts of the body; however, it is not uncommon for patients to see continuing improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
