Venus Freeze and Hypothyroidism

I have saggy skin on my neck and cellulite which I would like to treat using a non surgical procedure i.e the Venus Freeze. I am hypothyroid so is it safe to have the Venus Freeze treatment or are there contraindications regarding the condition and the VF?

Venus Freeze/Venus Legacy treatments deliver multipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulse therapy to the skin to produce a uniform heat matrix. This causes tightening and contouring of the skin and collagen build up.  These treatments should not affect a thyroid issue.  Discuss your medical history with your provider to determine whether or not you will be a good candidate for the treatment.

Thank you for your question.

The venus works basically as an ultrasound to heat the skin to a desired temperature to stimulate collagen reformation. There is no reason you could no perform the VF on the neck. I would recommend a consult with a PS to determine if you are a good canidate for the procedure and discuss your concerns in person. Good luck.

There is no reason why thyroid disease would affect the outcome of radiofrequency treatments.  Please see an expert for a consultation.   Best, Dr. Emer.
