Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How many treatments do I need?

A: For optimal results, we recommend 6 treatments for the face or neck, and 8 to 10 for the body. It is not uncommon that patients continue to see an improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
  
Q: Is there any pain or discomfort involved?

A: None! In fact, most patients nap or just simply relax during the treatment.  The sensation is absolutely pleasant and warm.
 
Q: Is there any downtime?

A: With minimal downtime and minimal discomfort, a treatment to one area can take less than 30 minutes allowing you to enjoy the immediate and long term benefits shortly after a treatment.
 
Q: What do I need to do to prepare before a treatment?

A: Absolutely nothing. Bring a pillow as you might fall asleep!
 
Q: Are the results real?

A: Very real.  We only use before and after photos of real patients with typical results.

How it works & What it is:

How does the Venus technology work?
 
Venus (MP)² works by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively.
 
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal response in the tissue which activates the body`s natural healing response.  That healing response causes new collagen to form, new elastin fibers and the production of fibroblasts to increase.  The existing collagen in the skin contracts (this causes the skin to look and feel firmer) and the elastin fibers unravel (which makes the skin more elastic).
  
Body contouring is achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, the body releases stress hormones. These hormones pass through the blood stream, and attach themselves to specific receptors on the membrane of the fat cell in the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin).   The stress hormone, once attached to the receptor, activates the hormone sensitive lipase – the hormone that is in charge of breaking down triglycerides into free fatty acids. The free fatty acids exit the fat cell through the blood stream, and the volume of the fat cell is thus reduced giving you a smoother, more contoured shape
