A new cellulite and skin tightening treatment is now available at spas in North Texas.
Venus Freeze has been available in Europe for a year and a half, but the FDA. just approved it for use in the United States a few months ago.
The technology, based on radio frequency, can be used all over the face and body. And unlike some other treatments, patients say it’s completely painless.
Cindy Ellig went to Luxury on Lovers to try a Venus Freeze treatment on her neck.
"Just to tighten, you know, we're all getting older and things sag and go south," Ellig said.
Spa owner Lisa Cobb said unlike other cellulite treatments, it’s not only painless, it’s relaxing.
"The older technology radio frequencies can be very painful. You can burn somebody fairly easily with them and it doesn't go as deep or get as good of a result," Cobb said.
She said the radio frequencies rejuvenate collagen, making the skin appear smoother after a few sessions. Ellig just started treatments on her neck, but she’s been getting them on her thighs.
"Some of us women have the cellulite and it's not becoming in a swimsuit and I just wanted to get rid of it," Ellig said.
She still has four treatments to go, but she's already seen a change.
"I’m on my 6th treatment and there is a huge difference," she said.
Venus Freeze treatments start at $200. To learn more, visit Luxury on Lovers on the web.
