Don't let the name fool you, Venus Freeze is anything but cold.
Its a really relaxing treatment which uses radio frequencies to produce a thermal effect, creating heat under the skin. I've been known to nod off whilst having a treatment which, given my severe bouts of insomnia and general inability to sleep, is a miracle!
I had my Venus Freeze treatment with Noorie at the Derma Aesthetics clinic in Brentwood.
Noorie is nothing short of a magician and her treatment room is my little slice of tranquility, a haven for when life's stresses reach their peak. Which is pretty often these days - I've got a season ticket! I always leave feeling re-energised on the inside as well as looking fabulous on the outside.
Noorie offers a range of amazing anti-ageing facials and skincare treatments but I opted on this visit for a Venus Freeze. I've been having them for about a year now and truly, the results always astound me.
If ever I have a special event coming up, I make sure that I book in to see Noorie a few days before to ensure I have a radiant glamorous glow. It really is one of the secrets as to how I personally look great at 45. Its definitely too good not to share with you all.
Here's me larking about at the weekend after my facial - not bad for 45 (even if I do say so myself!!!!)
Venus Freeze features two applicators, the DiamondPolar which is used for smaller areas (like the face) and the OctiPolar which can be used to treat larger areas (abdomen,thighs etc). I won't get too much into the science, but both applicators use a patented technology which combines Multi Polar Radio Frequency with Pulsed Elector Magnetic Fields. Basically they produce a uniform heat under the skin's surface which stimulates the bodies natural healing process resulting in new collagen formation, increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibres.
All you have to do is lay back and totally relax whilst the applicators go to work massaging your skin.
But what does all of that mean?
Well, a very (and I do mean VERY) visible and immediate lift to the skin - softer, smoother, more radiant and glowing complexion, reduction in wrinkles, more plumpness and volume to the face and an all round more youthful glow. I literally wore NO make-up all weekend my skin was so gorgeous. I think my smiling pictures above say it all don't you? Yup - Happy Cat!
Better still, there's absolutely no down time, its totally non invasive and it really does wonders for sagging skin, especially around the jowls. Just look at this before and after.
If you're a sceptic and want to know more about the science there's loads of articles you can read on line about the benefits of intense pulsed light. Here's a short (bit corporate) video all about how it works here too.
If you live in Essex then I highly recommend you try a Venus Freeze with Noorie. You'll be hooked just like me and looking younger and more radiant this Autumn. The weather may well be turning dull and dreary but your complexion most certainly won't!
