"It's warm and smooth, unlike any other treatment I've ever had and I saw results on my first visit."

Lakes Dermatology and the Spa at Lakes Dermatology are proud to announce the Venus Freeze. Dr. Rueckl is the first physician in Nevada to offer this innovative technology. 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. Although the name "freeze" gives the idea this treatment is cold, it's actually a radio frequency (RF) technology combined with pulsed magnetic fields that gives off a warm, deep heat. These two types of energy work in synergy to effectively deliver remarkable clinical results.
What is Venus Freeze and what does it do?
Venus Freeze is a revolutionary technology that offers non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle reduction, cellulite reduction, and circumferential fat reduction. Radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields on the hand piece create a unique combination that has the ability to penetrate deeply, quickly, comfortably, and safely into the skin. This technology is FDA-approved. Unlike other lasers and machines, because Venus Freeze has no lights or laser components, this treatment can be done on any skin type. Patients can just relax during the treatment feeling only a warm sensation. Venus Freeze was created by Venus Concept, and people can read more about their developments, this technology, and see clinical before and after photos at http://www.venus-concept.com.
The magnetic pulse component induces the release of growth factors required for the stimulation of new blood vessels, as well as for proliferation of dermal fibroblast. Simultaneously, the RF component induces collagen and elastin synthesis by causing controlled thermal damage in the dermis, which triggers the self-repair mechanism of skin tissue as well as enzyme-mediated lipolysis. The result is a marked improvement in skin tightness and elasticity, decreased subcutaneous fat mass, improved blood circulation, and stabilization of collagen strands, resulting in cellulite reduction and generally firmer and tighter skin. Venus Freeze treatments are done as a series, usually with one session a week, with a total of 6-8 treatments performed (depending upon whether the face or body is being treated). A maintenance program is suggested after the initial treatments are completed to help maintain long-term results.
What areas are treated with Venus Freeze?
There are two treatment heads of different sizes that allow multiple areas of the body to be treated. For the face and neck, each procedure takes about 45 minutes, with targeted heat points met and maintained during the treatment time. For the body, the most common treated areas are the thighs (front and/or back), hips, and buttocks. However, the stomach or waist can also be treated, as can the arms. Most patients select 1-2 large areas for body treatments (about the size of an 8x10 paper) to be treated within each 30-60 minute procedure. Venus Freeze treatments may be done on their own, or they may be combined with mesotherapy treatments done by Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas for deeper fat and adipose tissue.
What is a Venus Freeze treatment like?
Before the patient begins a Venus Freeze series, photos and/or measurements may be taken for later comparison and a consent will be reviewed and signed. During each treatment, a technician will apply a glycerin gel to the treatment area and will glide the Venus Freeze head over the selected areas. Radio frequency will deeply penetrate into the skin, heating it. Specific temperatures will be taken with a heat gun during the course of the treatment so that the proper temperature is reached and maintained for targeted amounts of time. During a Venus Freeze treatment, the patient will feel a heat sensation as the machine moves over the patient's skin and concentrates on the affected areas. The patient should have a warm feeling and some slight heat from the treated area for about a few hours after the procedure. Although very rare, one might have some minimal bruising from a treatment, but this should be very light, if any. There is a very small, but possible chance of a burn to the skin if the machine head stops in a skin area for too long or if the treatment area becomes too hot. Treatments require no patient downtime and you can return to work or other normal activities immediately.
What kind of results can a patient expect from Venus Freeze?
The patient should have realistic expectations about his/her treatments and remember that Venus Freeze should be done in conjunction with regular exercise and healthy eating. Venus Freeze treatments should not be used as a weight-loss program. Multiple sessions are required for the best results, and one should expect progress to improve with each visit. Venus Freeze is not permanent so a maintenance program will need to be done to maintain results long-term. One should expect to see general skin tightening and wrinkle reduction, cellulite reduction, and circumferential fat reduction.
How much does Venus Freeze cost?
For the body, Venus Freeze is offered as a package of eight 60-minute treatments for $2,500, treating 2 large areas at Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, Nevada. If additional areas need to be added for more time, those can be priced during a consultation. For the face and neck, six 45-minute treatments cost $2,500. After the patient has completed an initial package, maintenance Venus Freeze treatments are offered at discounted rates. Should the patient wish to do smaller areas of the body for less than 60 minutes, or wish to add mesotherapy to their Venus Freeze treatments, Lakes Dermatology can price those during their free consultation with their technicians or with Dr. Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology. Some patients may elect to begin doing Venus Freeze treatments instead of Velashape treatments or ST Refirme treatments; if this is the case, they can go over additional pricing options.
Lakes Dermatology’s prices are based upon their technicians' high levels of experience, the care you receive, their value-added benefits, the direct supervision of a Board-certified dermatologist, and the consumable costs for their treatments. While other offices may offer different pricing structures, Lakes Dermatology is confident that the patient will not receive the same level of care from any other facility.
