Every aesthetics treatment plan can have its benefits but in some instances, the longer you delay a treatment, the less possible it might be to restore, rejuvenate, or transform skin to your hopeful ideal. Realistic expectations are always recommended—as is taking action sooner when you can, particularly when it comes to these following non-surgical aesthetics treatments.
Energy-based skin resurfacing treatments offer a non-surgical alternative for the treatment of skin texture concerns like acne and other scars, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, rosacea, and more. Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments in particular use tiny pins to penetrate the skin and safely deliver heat, via NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) technology, deep below the skin’s surface. The tiny micro-dermal wounds created in the skin naturally signal your body to trigger the repair cycle to reduce the appearance of damage visible on the skin’s surface. For those seeking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the addition of Venus Viva™‘s DiamondPolar™ applicator, which uses synergetic Multi-Polar RF and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF), produces uniform heat beneath the skin’s surface to boost natural collagen and elastin fibers. In all, your Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatment plan should result in smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking skin. But here’s the deal: your skin’s collagen levels naturally decline with age, beginning in your 20s.
In terms of anti-aging beauty benefits, collagen is often associated with healthy, smooth skin. Found in the middle layer of the skin (the dermis), collagen proteins connect to create fibroblasts. These fibroblasts promote the growth of new cells to replace dead skin cells and encourage healthy cell turnover. In basic terms, higher collagen levels contribute to a rejuvenated appearance, including greater skin elasticity, plumpness, and smoothness. The reparation process stimulated by non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments works with your skin’s natural production levels, renewing and rejuvenating skin. If your skin is producing lower levels of collagen to begin as compared to what it would be producing at a younger age, it stands to reason that your customized treatment plan may not be able to help match those higher collagen levels that may be achieved if you’ve opted into your treatment sooner. For best results, opt into your skin resurfacing treatment plan sooner when possible. Your treatment provider may also recommend particular post-treatment care protocols to further support your treatment outcome.
Cellulite can be difficult to treat as the best approach is one that targets both the underlying fat cells and the weakening collagen structure of the skin. Further to this point, it’s important to note that not all cellulite is created equally. Technically speaking, there are four different grades of cellulite: from zero to three. Zero assumes there is no visible cellulite, though it may be beginning to form under the surface and will soon become visible. Grade one (adipose cellulite) typically appears as minor dimpling, similar to an orange peel. Grade two (oedematous cellulite), appears looser and softer, similar to cottage cheese, and is often a result of fluid retention. Finally, grade three (or fibrotic cellulite) is considered harder cellulite, with deeper dimples, some potential puckering, and lax skin. The grade of cellulite is important, as it typically determines which type of treatment may be most effective. While cellulite may not progress through all four levels, for those considering non-surgical cellulite reduction treatments, it’s certainly best to address it earlier for a fuller, more effective rejuvenation of the affected skin than wait and address a much more difficult state when skin’s collagen structure needs more significant repair. Cellulite reduction treatments with Venus Legacy™ and Venus Versa™ utilize advanced technology to safely target cellulite through destroying underlying fat cells, while boosting collagen production to improve the appearance of bumps and dimpling. This treatment technology delivers noticeable results for all skin tones with comfortable treatment sessions that last up to 30 minutes—short enough to get started on your lunch break.
Fat treatments aren’t a quick fix, but rather an effective treatment to enhance a healthy, active lifestyle. Many consumers may back away from surgical fat treatments due to high costs, potential painful recovery, and prolonged downtime, but non-surgical treatments may be an effective, more comfortable alternative with little to no downtime. Clinically proven Venus Bliss™ non-surgical fat treatments place applicators on the abdomen and/or flanks—depending on your aesthetics goals—to deliver diode laser energy deep below the skin’s surface, breaking down and destroying fat cells in a process known as lipolysis. The result is a smoother, leaner, more contoured midsection. It’s worth noting, though, that patients with a BMI over 30 may not be the ideal candidate for Venus Bliss™ fat treatments. For those waiting to opt into this treatment, saying yes sooner to a customized treatment plan can help you reach your aesthetic goals sooner, boost your confidence levels, and further encourage you to keep leading a healthy, active lifestyle that can help to maintain your ideal aesthetic outcome.
