Say Goodbye to Cellulite with Venus Freeze

Say Goodbye to Cellulite with Venus Freeze

You eat healthy and exercise, but despite your best efforts, you still have dimply, jiggly cellulite. You’re not alone. Up to 90% of women develop cellulite as they age, along with less than 10% of men

Thankfully, there is a solution: nonsurgical Venus FreezeTM, designed to smooth out your skin and reduce cellulite’s orange peel appearance.

At Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center, our team uses this state-of-the-art FDA-cleared system to help women and men enjoy smoother, sexier skin without surgery, injections, or chemicals. 

Plus, treatments are quick, so it’s easy to fit them into even the busiest schedule. Here’s how it works.

Why cellulite happens

Cellulite is actually fat that’s trapped just beneath the surface of your skin. Your skin contains bands of connective tissue that help anchor your skin to the underlying muscles and other tissue. In women, these bands are vertical. 

Superficial fat (fat just below the skin surface) gets pinned by these bands, creating the characteristic dimples and divots associated with cellulite. 

In men, these bands are crisscrossed, making superficial fat much less visible. That’s why cellulite only shows up in about 10% of men.

Anyone can develop cellulite, even people who are slim, trim, and physically fit. Researchers feel the hormone estrogen and your own genetics may play a role. 

The main reason cellulite tends to show more often as you age is because your skin produces less collagen, a protein that helps your skin stay firm and supple. When collagen production slows, your skin loses a lot of its firmness, making cellulite much more visible.

How Venus Freeze battles cellulite

Venus Freeze uses a combination of radiofrequency and magnetic field energy to create a heat matrix under your skin. As the energy pulses gently heat your tissues, they trigger natural responses that promote production of new, healthy collagen fibers, along with increased circulation in the area.

Ramped-up collagen production restores your skin’s youthful firmness, helping your skin look and feel firmer and smoother. In addition to making cellulite less visible, Venus Freeze tightens and tones your skin, decreasing laxity or sagging in the treatment area.

Venus Freeze treatments are completely painless. Some of our patients say the treatment feels like a relaxing hot stone massage. There’s no downtime, either, so you can get right back to your busy life once your treatment session has ended.

Versatile and customizable, Venus Freeze treatments can be an effective solution for cellulite on all your problem areas, including your:

To see the biggest benefits, most of our patients opt for a series of treatments spaced out over several weeks to promote ongoing collagen development. 

After your treatments, you can expect to see continued improvement for several months, with results lasting much longer, depending on individual factors like diet, exercise, and genetics.

Make this the year of smoother, sexier skin
