Venus Freeze™/Venus Legacy™ combines pulsed electromagnetic fields with multipolar radio frequency waves to safely, continuously and uniformly heat skin from the inside. In doing so, and depending on selected parameters, the treatment targets subcutaneous fat to help reshape body contours and to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The radio frequency’s thermal effect acts on the dermis to tighten slack collagen fibres and stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen, elastin fibres and supporting tissue. These corrective measures help create firmer, smoother-looking skin.
Pulsed electromagnetic fields stimulate the production of lipase, an enzyme that stimulates the elimination of fat stores in fat cells (adipocytes), resulting in a visible improvement of body contours and as well as a significant reduction in cellulite. It takes several weekly sessions to deliver the best visible and lasting results; it is therefore important to complete a full treatment, which includes 8 sessions for the face and 10 sessions for the body.
Whether the desired result is to firm skin, “open up” the eyes, smooth crepey skin, or reduce cellulite, the treatment is suitable for nearly all areas of the face and body. Excellent results have been achieved on the eyelids, face, neck, arms, décolleté, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs and knees. A session varies between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on area to be treated.
A session varies between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on target area. Although the heating sensation from Venus Freeze™/Venus Legacy™ is warm and comfortable, it may cause temporary mild redness. No other effects have been reported and you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
Accurately tracing an outline of the treatment area with a white makeup pencil helps define the area of skin to be treated. It’s important to note that the larger the treatment area, the less effective the skin-heating becomes, with an overall decrease in results. The technician follows the traced lines to ensure a quick and adequate build-up of heat needed for stimulating the skin’s natural collagenesis process.
Applying a thin layer of ultrasound gel to the treatment area protects the skin surface and allows the device nozzle to glide easily over skin.
Using multipolar radio frequency waves to heat tissues and stimulate surface production of collagen fibres is the primary objective of Venus Freeze™/Venus Legacy™. The metal nozzle—available in two sizes adapted to face and body respectively—glides gently over skin to evenly distribute its heat on the epidermis. The nozzle remains in motion throughout the entire session, and you will feel a continuous movement on your skin.
It is very important that the technician maintain the right temperature during treatment. To do so, the technician uses a thermometer throughout the entire session. For the face, a temperature varying between 39°C and 41°C must be reached quickly, and then maintained, to maximize skin-firming results. For the body, the temperature varies between 42°C and 45°C—this higher heat setting not only firms skin, but also helps reshape body contours and target cellulite.
The session ends with a quick clean of the treated area by the technician, using a triple-action toning gel. This caffeine-free gel contains active ingredients such as ginger and grapefruit extract that stimulate microcirculation, strengthen connective tissue and prevent the development of new cellulite.

Upon completion of a full treatment plan, we strongly recommended that you undergo a maintenance session with the change of season. In doing so, you help retain the restorative firming effects for a few years. Venus Freeze™/Venus Legacy™ technology is also a popular skin care treatment to complement Thermage® and Ulthera® treatments since it delivers surface benefits that work synergistically with the deeper skin benefits provided by both platforms. Ask your clinic about our post-treatment recommendations.
Once the desired effects are achieved, the results will last so long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Women who are pregnant or nursing should postpone this type of treatment. Individuals with epilepsy or rosacea (who are considering a facial session only) should avoid this treatment.
