The 2013 Readers' Choice Awards from American Health and Beauty honors the top non-surgical and surgical procedures in aesthetic medicine. Spanning several categories, this year's big winner of being the most popular and researched procedure is The Venus Freeze.
As we age, skin begins to lose elasticity and collagen degrades with slower replenishment. It is therefore no surprise that one of the most popular conditions researched on American Health and Beauty is skin tightening. The Venus Freeze targets skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction with multi-polar radio frequency which causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body`s natural healing response.

As seen on the TV show "The Doctors", by combining Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PMF) and Radio Frequency (RF) energy, the Venus Freeze may increase the production of collagen and elastin in skin while keeping the epidermis or upper layer of the skin intact and undamaged. As a result, there is no downtime or pain associated with this treatment. While results are visible after immediately following the treatment, final results will continue to get better as Venus Freeze promotes the body's own collagen to re-grow.
The Venus Freeze has been referred to by some doctors as a non-surgical tummy tuck!
Dom Serafino, CEO Venus Concept said, "We are extremely pleased to have the Venus Freeze rated the number 1 procedure for 2013. Having an independent organization such as American Health and Beauty and it's contributors recognize the Venus Freeze is truly an honor. It also validates that our core technology is resonating with patients across North America as an effective, safe and pain free solution to a variety of clinical indications."
Considered by some as a non-surgical tummy tuck alternative
"Based on radio frequency energy, the hand-piece of the Venus Freeze device delivers heat to tissues while protecting the external skin," explains Chicago plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Bloch, "Collagen, fat and tissues are heated up to 41 degrees centigrade and maintained for 10-15 minutes to simulate contraction and tightening of underlying collagen and subsequently, the tightening of overlying skin."

The Venus Freeze may be easily used anywhere on the body where there is some laxity of skin and where patients want skin tightening. Common areas include the arms, abdomen, thighs, neck and even the face. The treatment is non-invasive and comfortable. Several treatments are recommended to get the best results possible.
