When performing the noninvasive Venus treatments, it is important to reach the target temperatures within the deeper skin tissues in a safe and reliable manner. Temperatures too high can lead to undesirable side effects including localized nodules, internal scarring and surface irregularities. Because of these concerns, the Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy treatments provide superior safety profiles due to the multipolar technology ensuring consistent and even temperature distribution within the target tissues. Our patients have not reported any side effects.

Venus Freeze is a non-surgical body contouring, cellulite reduction, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction treatment for the face, neck, and body! These painless treatments are suggested at 6-8 sessions at 1 time a week for long term results. Venus freeze uses Radiofrequency and magnetic pulses to treat the areas of interest- They have been used in medicine for years and have been proven safe and effective! Come relax and resume your everyday activities while you reach your goals for skin and body! Venus Freeze is very similar to a hot stone massage, I hope this helps you on your journey!:)

Venus Freeze is a great non-invasive treatment for tightening skin and when indicated decreasing fat.  It can be used anywhere on the body.  We have not seen or heard of any significant complications or side effects from Venus Freeze treatments.  Our patients love their results.  Good luck and be well.

Venus Freeze side effects

Venus Freeze has no known long-term (or short-term) side effects. It is a radio frequency modality and there have been no proven long-term side effects for continued treatments. (Please note a short-term side effect would be like a contact burn or light redness only.)

There are no long term side effects than I know of from Venus.  It is very hard to even get short term side effects such as burns or contact allergies.  It is a very safe and effective treatment and is something we perform daily in our practice.  Best, Dr. Emer.
