How Can Venus Freeze Help You?

- Wrinkle reduction
- Cellulite reduction
- Circumferential reduction
Dr. Carolyn Mai is the first physician to perform Venus Freeze on Oahu. Venus Freeze ® or (MP)2 is a revolutionary, non-invasive skin tightening and body contouring solution that can be used on the face, neck, and body. The treatment uses radio frequency (RF) technology combined with pulsed magnetic fields that gives off a warm, deep heat. There is no “freezing” of the skin, but the machine in a sense does “freeze” time. The magnetic pulse and radiofrequency energies work together to effectively deliver wonderful clinical results.
How does it work?
This new technology combines Pulse Magnetic fields and RF. The Pulse Magnetic fields increase growth agents responsible for the creation of minute blood vessels and the proliferation of dermal fibroblasts. Concurrently, RF induces controlled thermal damage in the dermis which in turn stimulates the self-repair mechanisms of skin tissue. The body then regenerates more collagen which gives your skin a smoother, more youthful glow.
Lipolysis (MP)2 increases tissue temperature and thereby breaks down triglycerides located in fat cells. The free fatty acids are released into the blood stream resulting in a significant volume reduction in fat cells. This enhanced biological process leads to measurable circumferential reduction and smoothes cellulite. Basically, we are shrinking the fat cells.
Blood Circulation (MP)2 improves blood flow in the treated area, enhancing overall skin condition. Improving dermal circulation supplies more vitamins, minerals and oxygen to skin cells, simultaneously removing toxins and waste materials.
Collagen and Elastic Restructuring (MP)2 modifies the ultra structure of collagen fibers making them thicker and shorter, increasing skin tightness. At the same time new fibroblasts increase the number of collagen and elastin fibers improving skin tightness and elasticity resulting in wrinkle reduction.
What Areas can be treated with Venus Freeze?
The face, neck and body can all be treated with Venus Freeze. There are 2 treatment heads. One is smaller for the face to target the collagen fibers and the other is larger for the body to target the fat cells. You can treat just about anywhere. I have already treated the fat bulge in front of the armpit and above the bra line with great success.
How will my treatment session be like?
Glycerin will be placed on the skin. Then the skin will be heated up to a certain temperature and be maintained at the temperature for a certain amount of time. The treatment session usually runs between 20 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the area. During the treatment you will feel heat. Most say it feels like a hot stone massage. You may return to your normal activities. There is no downtime.
The treatment sessions are once a week. 6-8 sessions are needed. Venus freeze is not permanent so as we age, a maintenance program will be needed to maintain your best possible results.
At Honolulu Cosmetic Laser, ALL treatments are performed by the doctor. No treatments are delegated to technicians, aestheticians, or medical assistants.
