Is Venus Freeze As Effective As Facial Fillers for Volume in Nasal Folds, Eye Area Etc?

I am 44 and have had some injectable fillers. I am booked for 6 face and neck sessions and was wondering if the Venus Freeze is effective at creating collegen and adding volume to the cheeks. I am trying this instead of injections and am hoping to have a fuller tighter face neck and eye area.
Does Venus Freeze create volume like facial fillers?
Venus Freeze does not create volume. It has no ability to plump areas. It can tighten by inducing targeted radio frequency, which leads to smoothing and tightening, but it does not create volume. If your face has volume loss, this is not what you want to do to create volume and add collagen. That is not what it is intended for and though I think you will like some of the lifting, smoothing, and tightening, it sounds like you will be disappointed if you are looking for a fuller face.
Venus Freeze will have no volumizing effect
Venus Freeze is primarily radio frequency which is used to induce enough heat response to tighten existing collagen. It will not increase volume.
There are only a few systems that are clinically effective at tightening facial skin and I'm afraid if you expect volumizing, you will be completely disappointed.
If you are after volume, then your only options are fillers or fat transfer (or weight gain :) ).
All procedures designed to shrink body areas or tighten skin do so with heat. There is often what is referred to as collagen remodeling which tightens the collagen you already have.
Enough heat will signal to your body that an injury has occurred (all medically designed heat treatments induce controlled injury to create a desired response). This in turn stimulates collagen production, but not in terms of creating anything resembling the volume you would get from fillers.
