Venus swan can be used as either an anti-ageing facial to decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and to tighten the skin, or as a body treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite, tighten the skin, and to reduce the overall circumference of an area, making it appear slimmer. It’s great for all those problem areas.
Venus swan facial and body treatments feel like a massage. They are performed with rounded electrodes and induce a warming sensation on the skin. Very occasionally a prickle can be felt, however this is not painful.
In order to understand how the Venus Swan works, we have to first look at the ageing process.
As we get older the number of capillary (minute blood vessel) loops within the skin decreases, this means that your skin cells are not receiving as much blood and nutrients as they would have done in your youth. This affects the skin as the fibroblasts (which are responsible for making collagen and elastin) cannot function as efficiently or as quickly as before. This leads to fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity to develop on the surface of the skin.
The Venus Swan can reverse the effects of ageing through the combination of magnetic pulses (PMF) and radio frequency (RF). Each electrode simultaneously emits RF and PMF in varying phases.
This does two things, firstly the heat that builds up in the skin from the RF causes the skin to think it is damaged. This stimulates the skin to “heal” itself, which means it will naturally deliver more blood and nutrients to the treated area as well as creating more collagen fibres through the healing process. Secondly, the PMF directly stimulates the skin to increase the level of fibroblasts, which in turn leads to an increase in collagen and elastin fibres.
In body treatments, this process also stimulates the contraction of collagen fibres and improved circulation to help reduce the levels and appearance of cellulite and reduce the overall circumference of the area.
You can expect a Venus Swan facial to last 30-40 minutes, depending on whether the neck is included (recommended). A body treatment will last around 40 minutes and it is vital to exercise afterwards as this will increase the circulation and boost your results.
You will see the difference after just one treatment, however for optimal results a course of 8-10 treatments once a week is best. Monthly maintenance is recommended especially for anti-ageing face treatments.
Venus Swan promotes natural skin healing without injuring the skin. The treatment is not painful but can induce a heating sensation. Side effects include a mild redness to the skin and some very slight swelling which will disappear after 1 hour.
