Exactly What Is Venus Freeze?

Based on the innovative (MP)² Technology, Venus Freeze® creates a synergy of magnetic pulses and radio frequency (RF) that penetrates into multiple layers of the skin. This is a non-surgical procedure that is done in the office with no pain and no down time.

If you don’t have several days to recuperate but still want to look years younger, consider Venus Freeze before you dive into facelift surgery.  It’s one of Dr. Tess’s most popular anti-aging procedures because you actually see instant results.

Watch the video below to see a remarkable before-and-after image of one of Dr. Tess’s patients.
