Venus Freeze Plus

With age, there are changes in the skin's strength and elasticity. Most people develop fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, sagging, age spots, sun damage and other signs of aging as they grow older. There are many cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of your skin and help you look brighter, fresher, and younger. Some of these aesthetic and cosmetic procedures for severe facial wrinkles and other signs of aging are invasive. However, there are also many non surgical, non invasive anti-aging treatments with no downtime. Continue reading to learn about one such non invasive treatment from the Venus Concept Family called Venus Freeze Plus. Find out what this dermal rejuvenation treatment can do for you and what the treatment regimen involves.

What is Venus Freeze Plus™?

Venus Freeze Plus is a non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle reduction treatment. It uses advanced technologies (multi polar radio frequency and pulsed electro magnetic fields) to painlessly improve the appearance of your skin. This means you can reduce the signs of visibly aging skin with no downtime.

If you've been looking for an anti-aging treatment that eliminates severe facial wrinkles and gives you smoother skin, Venus Freeze Plus could be a good option for you. The platform can be used on all Fitzpatrick skin types and skin tones. It is suitable for both male and female patients.

Is Venus Freeze hot or cold? How does it work?

Venus Freeze uses both thermal and non-thermal technologies. The platform combines two technologies - pulsed electro magnetic fields and multi polar radio frequency. These technologies work by triggering regenerative processes in the skin to give it a smoother, firmer, younger appearance.

Pulsed electro magnetic fields

Pulsed electro magnetic fields generate a non-thermal energy that is emitted by the Venus Freeze applicators. The energy emitted by the applicator's electrodes promotes angiogenesis. In simpler words, it means the energy increases local blood circulation, which in turn increases the delivery of oxygen, nutrients, and growth factor to the skin. This helps to keep the skin healthy.

Multi polar radio frequency

The multi polar radio frequency energy generated by the system causes uniform heating of the skin tissues. The platform is designed to maintain a steady therapeutic temperature for maximum patient comfort. The operator can adjust the target temperature suitable for each individual client. By heating the skin tissues to a therapeutic temperature, Venus Freeze Plus promotes the growth of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. The increased collagen synthesis leads to temporary skin tightening.


The Venus Freeze Plus system comes with a pair of applicators - the DiamondPolar applicator for smaller areas and the OctiPolar applicator for larger areas. This makes Venus Freeze Plus ideal for treating both smaller areas in the face and larger areas in the body.

Does Venus Freeze tighten skin and improve severe facial wrinkles?

As noted, Venus Freeze Plus is a skin tightening and wrinkle reduction system. The treatment area can be the face, neck, or body. Some of the benefits of the treatments include:

  • Visible improvement in moderate to severe facial wrinkles for more youthful looking skin.
  • Reduction in neck wrinkles and lines for a tighter, fresher look.
  • Tightening of lax skin in the cheeks, jowls, and neck for a firmer appearance.
  • Improvement in sagging skin of the upper arms for a tighter, slimmer silhouette.
  • Smoothening and tightening of skin in the abdominal area for a more defined waistline.

Venus Freeze Plus is suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types. Fitzpatrick skin types is a classification system of six skin types based on the amount of melanin (pigment) present in the skin. The melanin determines the skin tones, which in turn are related to the effect of ultraviolet radiation on skin - fairer skin types tan slowly and burn more easily while darker skin tones tan easily and burn slowly.

What is the Venus Freeze Plus™ procedure like?

You should arrive for your appointment with clean skin devoid of any creams, lotions, or makeup. Before starting the treatment, your aesthetic provider will apply a gel to the target area. They will then move the Venus Freeze Plus applicators repeatedly over the treatment area, slowly increasing the heat. The entire process can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, maybe longer for larger areas such as the abdomen.

Are the treatments painful?

Venus Freeze Plus treatments are painless. Some clients describe them like a relaxing hot stone massage. If you find the heat level to be uncomfortable, you can tell your provider and they can dial it back to a more comfortable level. Your skin may be slightly pink and tender after the treatment, but these side effects are usually mild and do not restrict normal activities.

How long does a Venus Freeze treatment last? How many treatments will I need?

It is worth noting that Venus Freeze treatments lead to a temporary reduction in wrinkles. Most providers recommend 6-8 treatments for the face and 10 or more treatments for the body to get optimal results.

You will notice an immediate improvement in the tightness and tone of your skin after your first Venus Freeze Plus treatment. Your skin will continue to improve for 3-4 months after your last treatment, at which time you may need a touch-up to maintain the results. Some people see benefits for up to 2 years as the skin continues to generate new collagen and elastin.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime after Venus Freeze Plus cosmetic procedures. You can drive yourself home and return to work and all normal activities the same day.

Is Venus Freeze safe?

The Venus Freeze Plus applicators are designed with advanced safety features for enhanced patient safety as well as more predictable and consistent results. As noted, a combination of thermal and non thermal technology emitted from the applicators is used to achieve non invasive skin tightening.

Real-time thermal feedback

The real time thermal feedback safety feature allows easy and immediate detection of temperature changes by the operator. The platform allows the operator to keep an eye on the skin temperature profile display and adjust the settings as needed.

Automatic temperature control

The system's automatic temperature control feature allows the operator to select the appropriate temperature setting for the target area. It also ensures the skin tissues do not overheat and the risk of soft tissue injuries is kept low. The thermal energy is delivered homogenously or uniformly to the treatment area. No topical cooling agents are required because of these advanced safety features.
