The age of Instagram can be hard. Every day as we take a scroll through its halls of images, we’re subjected to pictures of perfection; ripped abs, clean eating, bulging muscles and faultless bodies. It can make us pick at our own appearances and wonder why putting loads of effort into exercise and eating well isn’t giving us the same results.

I’m no exception to this. No matter how cleanly I eat, how much exercise I do or how many restrictions I impose on myself, I still can’t get rid of the loose skin that appeared after my two pregnancies. It became a real bugbear for me; I didn’t want to get into a bikini or wear certain dresses. So I went looking for a solution – both for myself and for any client that might have a similar niggle – and that’s when I found the Venus Concept Machine. Once I saw what this incredible piece of equipment could do, I invested immediately.

Venus Freeze™ is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in

  • Reducing circumference
  • Improving cellulite
  • Tightening skin
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

So how does it work? (Settle in for the science.)

Using the patented (MP)² technology, Venus Freeze™ combines Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce a soothing and therapeutic heat over the skin. The treatment also uses Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which provide the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients, and blood to the skin, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow. And it’s all completely safe and pain-free.

This functionality can then be applied to achieve a range of different results, by working in a number of different ways.

Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and cellulite reduction occur because the radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. The active collagen in the skin then contracts, achieving a tighter appearance along with softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite.

It’s also fantastic for body contouring. This is achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, as that makes the body release stress hormones. These hormones pass through the bloodstream and attach themselves to specific receptors on the membrane of the fat cell in the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin), which activates an enzyme called lipase. This is what helps to break down fatty acids. These free fatty acids then exit the fat cell through the bloodstream and the volume of the fat cell is thus reduced, giving the body a smoother, more contoured shape.

But it’s not just for the body. The Venus facial treatments tighten lax or tired skin, reducing wrinkles and improving facial contours. The facial results are so good that it’s become a red carpet favourite, with lots of celebrities using it to get that ‘Cinderella Effect’ before a big event.

So whether you’re battling stubborn love handles, want to blast some cellulite before a big trip, or are simply looking for a wonderful facial boost, come in and see what the Venus and Akina can do for you.

The facial treatment requires a course of 8 treatments, carried out at weekly intervals, at a cost of €100 per treatment.

Body treatments require a course of 10 treatments for optimum results, and cost €110 per treatment.

Having seen the results of the Venus for myself, I can promise that this treatment is worth the investment. And just to give you a little added incentive, we’re offering 15%  OFF all Venus Freeze treatments if you mention this article when booking.

I look forward to showing you what it can do!
