Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy
Collagen and elastin keep skin firm, and from sagging. However, as we age collagen breaks down and we lose our natural elasticity. Our skin's underlying structure breaks down, and we lose our definition that keeps the skin up and youthful. Thus our skin starts to sag and hang (where jowls come from), and once it has already sagged the pores often look larger as they already stretched out.
There are multiple factors for what causes skin to sag. Genetics may predispose you to have sagging skin. Age is another factor that contributes for sagging skin. Muscles that support your skin weaken as you age, thus allowing fat to accumulate in certain areas causing sagging sections. Also with age your skin does not shed dead skin cells as well which could be another contributor to saggy skin. Another factor is fluid retention which causes puffiness that then forms saggy tissue. One may also experience sagging skin if they have lost weight for it can result from a lack of muscle. Other factors include smoking, pregnancy, poor diet, dehydration, wrong skin care products, and alcohol. Lastly, sun damage which causes wrinkles may progress to loose skin.
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, making the treatment extremely comfortable. As you relax, the applicator glides over the area being treated, painlessly emitting a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin.
Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy work to reduce the appearance of sagging skin by using 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 looking skin.
