Best Venus Freeze Treatment Protocols
Venus Freeze is a non-invasive skin tightening device which uses radio frequency to heat the skin up to 42 degrees C. Once that temperature is reached, the hand piece is continually moved in the area being treated to maintain the temperature for the amount of time that the area requires (20 to 30 minutes usually). The Legacy device adds a suction component to bring body fat closer to the radio frequency resulting in better fat reduction. In our practice we use Venus Freeze on the entire body and the neck. We do not use the device on the face to avoid any loss of facial fat. Good luck and be well.
