The combination of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulse catalyzes an increase in the production of collagen and elastin fibers, as well as new dermal blood vessels. For the face this results in healthy looking, smoother skin with improved elasticity and texture.
What are the immediate results following a Venus Freeze treatment?
When collagen fibers in the skin are exposed to heat (as during a treatment), their structure is modified and they immediately contract, making the skin tighter. This effect is noticeable upon completion of the first treatment.
Results are individual and may be difficult to predict. However, clinical studies show continuous improvement after six months.
How many treatments are required to get good clinical results?
Generally, the recommended number of treatment sessions is 6-8 for the face. However, the number of treatments may vary depending on the client’s characteristics.
Do I need maintenance treatments?
One treatment every two – three months are recommended to maintain results.
How effective is the magnetic pulse component of the Venus Freeze and what is the scientific evidence to support it?
It is well documented that magnetic pulse has a positive effect on wound and bone healing, creation of new small blood vessels (angiogenesis) and collagen production. These clinical effects have been evident in many clinical trials. Furthermore, this non-invasive therapy was approved by the FDA as a safe and effective technology for medical use. The (MP)² , uses this technology to dramatically improve skin appearance, via inducement of angiogenesis and collagen production.
What is the difference between the Venus Freeze MP(2) (magnetic pulse) technology and other RF technology?
Other Radio Frequency technologies necessitate the use of active cooling to avoid skin burns. Venus Freeze’s hand-pieces deploy much less power, since its poles work very efficiently and generate focused and homogenous heat with no need of cooling aid and no risk of skin burns.
How does the MP(2) and the RF components of the Venus Freeze work together?
The (MP)² induces the production of collagen via two synergistic mechanisms — the MP component induces the proliferation of fibroblast, who in turn produce collagen, and the RF component creates a controlled thermal damage, and initiates a wound-healing process that involves production of collagen. The result is a significant increase in collagen production.
ClearLift works by using laser light and transforming it into acoustic sound waves. The sound waves create thousands of microscopic perforations and heats beneath the top layer of the dermis. The top layer of skin remains in tact. This allows the skin to heal rapidly and encourages the production of collagen, firming and smoothing the complexion.
To remodel collagen a series of 6 treatment spaced every two weeks apart is recommended. If you have been doing other firming treatments that we offer, you may want to maintain with the ClearLift.
Allow about 60 min for each full face treatment.
Collagen Induction Therapy (Microneedling) is a treatment using an electronic pen shaped device, studded with very fine needles that penetrate beneath the skins surface to promote collagen fiber production, elasticity, and blood flow to the treated area.
The process creates tiny wounds, breaking down old scar tissue and stimulating skin cells. Skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, large pores, hyper-pigmentation.
We use a stem cell ampule with the microneedle. Stem cells are known for their ability to repair.
There is no downtime or discomfort.
What is LED Technology?
Light Emitting Diodes (LED) have been studied by NASA and the Marshall Space Station in Alabama for over 30 years. It is proven that while in space astronauts experience bone and muscle atrophy and any wounds do not heal until back on Earth. The effects of light and gravity have been studies for many, many years. The results have shown the ability of light to promote cell growth and cellular repair.
LED treatments work by activating skin cells with low level, non-thermal light energy. This is very similar to photosynthesis in plants.
What’s the difference between Laser, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Light Emitting Diode (LED)
• High powered coherent light that delivers one wavelength (color) at a time
• Causes a thermal heat energy (a burn)
• Causes photocoagulation (wounding agent)
• Painful and requires some downtime
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
• Scattered light allows for faster treatment and deeper penetration
• Focuses on a larger area
• Causes thermal heat energy, but with less of a burn
• Is a photocoagulation
• Much less downtime and discomfort than laser
Celluma Light Emitting diode (LED)
• Uses the same amount of energy (wavelength) as lasers & IPL’s
• Does not cause a thermal heat energy
• It converts light energy into cell energy, stimulating fibroblasts, producing collagen
• Is a Photo-Bio-Stimulation (non-wounding agent)
• Promotes wound healing by 50%
• No downtime or discomfort, most people fall asleep
• Visible results
• Frequency of treatments: Once a week for 6 weeks, then once every 45—60 days.
• Each treatment takes 45 minutes
Botox® purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there's no botulism risk. They work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles.
Xeomin® blocks the nerve communication that moves the muscles, just like Botox.
They both contain the same active ingredient. The difference is that Xeomin does not have unnecessary proteins added. Your body may become resistant to the added protein.
Think about it like taking additives out of your food, what's left is cleaner and more nutritious. If you feel like you're not getting the same results as previously with Botox, try Xeomin.
Dysport® has been FDA approved since 2009. It is a injectable neuromodulator, similar to Botox.
Technically, Dysport and Botox differ in the protein structures. More importantly for you,Dysport® kicks in faster. Studies show that Dysport may last longer.
Dysport is s smaller molecule so it measured differently and you will you will need more units.
We offer many types of fillers including, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Veluma®, Belotero® and others. Pricing and product used depends on the area and severity of lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Ammann will consult with you to determine which product is advisable for you.
