It’s time to get ready for summer. Tighten up sagging skin and tackle cellulite before the weather turns warm.
At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa in Godfrey, Illinois, our goal is to promote excellent health and incredible looks to match. To that end, we offer an innovative skin tightening system called the Venus Freeze Plus™, which tackles sagging skin and cellulite.
And if you start now with our skin-tightening treatments, your body can be bikini-ready by summer.
The sags and bumps
To better understand how this innovative laser technology works to tighten and firm up your body, let’s first take a look at what we’re up against.
As you age, your skin's collagen and elastin levels begin to decline naturally. These structural proteins are primarily responsible for the tone and elasticity of your tissue. When these resources dry up, your skin isn’t as resilient as it once was. This effect is highly pronounced in women who pass through menopause.
You’re left with sagging skin all over your body, including under your chin, arms, and knees. Your skin can begin to succumb to gravity almost anywhere on your body, which is made especially evident when the sun hits it and creates shadows around your drooping tissue.
Now, add cellulite to the mix. Cellulite is an equal opportunity offender, affecting people of all ages and sizes. Cellulite results from poor connective tissue, allowing more fat to push through to the surface, creating a lumpy look. Cellulite is far more pronounced in women than men because of a different structural pattern in the support network below the skin’s surface.
If you want to tighten and tone these areas to reduce the appearance of cellulite and breathe new life into sagging tissue, nonsurgical Venus Freeze Plus is just the ticket. The system delivers advanced radiofrequency energy into your tissue — without harming the surface area — to jump-start your collagen production.
Your cells absorb the energy as heat, registering the temperature change and creating a mild healing response. Leading the charge is renewed collagen production, which is your body’s way of strengthening the tissue to defend itself.
With continued collagen production, the support network in your skin tightens up, creating a more even and toned surface area. This also works to keep those lumpy fat deposits from making their way toward the surface of your skin, creating cellulite.
A smooth path forward
Venus Freeze Plus treatments are noninvasive and typically take less than an hour (usually 30 minutes). And there’s no downtime associated with the procedure, so you’re free to return to your daily routine. Most of our clients undergo several treatments for maximum effect, which we space out by several weeks to allow time for your body to go to work and tighten your skin.
The changes will be gradual as the new collagen shores up your skin from the inside out. Your best results usually appear 6-12 weeks after your last treatment, meaning that if you start now, you’ll be swimsuit ready in summer.
