For patients looking to restore elasticity to their skin and achieve a more youthful, attractive shape, laser skin tightening is a non-invasive treatment that has been tied to successful results. Dr. Lloyd Van Wyck uses the Venus Freeze™ system to stimulate collagen and elastin in skin. Through laser skin tightening, patients can enjoy firmer skin in the areas of the face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks.

Candidates for Laser Skin Tightening
Men and women who are bothered by cellulite, wrinkles, or sagging skin on the face and body are good candidates for Venus Freeze™. A Venus Freeze™ treatment session typically takes about 30 to 40 minutes. It is a comfortable procedure, and is often compared to a massage. If improved skin tone and more attractive contours are desired, but you do not wish to undergo surgery, laser skin tightening may be an optimal solution for you.
The Procedure: What to Expect
At your treatment session, you will first be seated in a treatment room, and made to feel comfortable. We then apply a gel on the treatment site that allows the applicator to move across your skin with greater ease. The Venus Freeze™ wand will emit pulsed magnetic fields to your target areas. You will feel a relaxing, warm feeling on your skin as multi-polar radio frequency creates a reaction that increases blood flow and healing, causing new collagen and elastin fibers to form.
Since treatment with Venus Freeze™ is non-invasive, there is no down time and no recovery period, so you will be able to return to normal activities following each visit. This cosmetic procedure can save you from invasive plastic surgery, while producing successful results.
Results can typically be seen after six to eight facial treatments, or eight to ten treatments on other areas of the body. Patients can experience firmer skin, but also a youthful glow, due to increased oxygen and nutrients in the skin. Laugh lines, fine lines, and other wrinkles can diminish as your treatment sessions progress.
Many patients report rapid results after their facial treatment, including reduced wrinkles and a softer, younger appearance. Treatments to the body can also produce very fast results, reducing cellulite and wrinkles, and toning and firming skin for more attractive curves. Once your final procedure is complete, you may continue to notice improvements for three months.
Recovery and Side Effects
Since treatment with Venus Freeze™ is non-invasive, there is no down time and no recovery period, so you will be able to return to normal activities following each visit. Other than a slight pink coloring or warm feeling that can occur in the treatment area, there are no known side effects to laser skin tightening treatment.
