Over a certain age, we know what sagging facial skin is because we see it every time we look in the mirror. Do you see a crease that starts from the corner of the mouth and extends down to the jaw line? This line is called an oral commissure groove, drool line, or marionette line. As we age we sometimes look like we are sad when we are not. In some people, these lines can become very deep. The line extends down to the jaw where there often is a depression we call the pre-jowl depression. Your neck isn’t immune from the effects of gravity and collagen breakdown too, which are the main culprits of age-related changes.
If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment option for sagging skin, RF Venus Lift is perhaps the best solution for you.
What is RF Venus Lift?
RF Venus Lift is a non-invasive treatment using radio frequency technology of Venus Legacy from Venus Concept. Venus Legacy™ is a non-surgical aesthetic device made for Body Contouring, Cellulite Reduction, Stretch Mark Improvement and Skin Tightening for the Face, Neck, and Body. It is the firsts and only FDA cleared technology to use a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields. Visible results can be seen soon after 30 minute treatments.
Venus Legacy delivers Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulse Therapy to the skin to produce a dense and uniform heat matrix. This causes collagen synthesis and contraction, fibroblast proliferation, neo-vascularity and lypolysis.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will vary patient to patient. Most patients see a result in as little as three treatments however, we advise a full series of six treatments for the face and neck to obtain optimal results.
It is not uncommon that patients continue to see an improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
Is there any pain or discomfort involved during the treatment?
None. In fact, most patients nap or just simply relax during the treatment. The sensation is absolutely pleasant and warm.
As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to the skin. This lotion helps the applicator glide on the surface of your skin. The correct size applicator is selected and the treatment provider will then begin to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin. This feels like hot stone massage. We encourage our patients to close their eyes and take this time to relax.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
With minimal downtime and minimal discomfort, a treatment to one area can take less than 30 minutes allowing you to enjoy the immediate and long term benefits shortly after a treatment.
Sometimes there is a slight pinkness and warmth to the skin. The warmth and pinkness will not last longer than an hour and most often has been described as a glow to the skin.
Are the treatments safe?
Yes. Radio frequency and Magnetic Pulse Therapy have been used in medicine for many years and are proven, safe and effective technologies. Our doctor will review your medical history and your aesthetic goals to see if RF Venus Lift treatments are right for you.
