Are you worried about looking older than you really are? Unsurprisingly, the onset of fine lines and wrinkles is the most common sign of aging. But wrinkles aren't only caused by aging skin. They can also come from prolonged sun exposure, diet, stress, hormone changes, smoking, and other lifestyle factors that prematurely age your appearance.
If you're ready to start looking as young on the outside as you feel on the inside, you may be the perfect candidate for non-surgical wrinkle reduction. With just a few quick sessions, these radio frequency-based treatments can help undo the appearance of skin damage, and restore smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Venus Concept's wrinkle reduction treatments work by enhancing your body's natural production of collagen and elastin fibers, the two main building blocks of healthy, youthful skin.
Everything you need to know about your wrinkle reduction treatment.
If you’re getting a wrinkle reduction treatment done, your treatment provider may be using Venus Freeze™, Venus Freeze Plus™, Venus Legacy™, Venus Versa™, or Venus Viva™.
