When it comes to anti-aging treatments, there are a lot of different options to choose from. You can go with something like Venus Freeze™, or you could try TriBella™. Both of these treatments have their pros and cons, so how do you know which is right for you? In this blog post, we will compare Venus Freeze™ and TriBella™ in terms of their effectiveness, price, and side effects. We will help you decide which treatment is the best option for you!
Aging and Your Skin
Before comparing these two anti-aging treatments, it is important to understand how aging affects your skin. There are a number of changes your skin undergoes, however one of the most noticeable changes is the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
Fine lines and wrinkles form as a natural part of the aging process, and they are caused by a combination of factors such as sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are proteins found in the dermis that help keep your skin looking youthful and elastic. Without these proteins, your skin starts to sag and wrinkles form.
Venus Freeze™ is a skin tightening technique developed by Venus Treatments. This technique uses multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields to safely and comfortably heat tissues below the skin (dermis). In doing so, the body responds by producing more collagen and elastin fibers. This restores elasticity to the skin and decreases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that, but Venus Freeze™ can be used to decrease the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, belly, buttocks, and other areas.
During Venus Freeze™ treatment, a special applicator will gradually be warmed to the necessary temperature and moved across the treatment area. Many people find the treatment to be comforting and equate it to a hot stone massage. The treatment is quick and lasts only about 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Multiple treatments are recommended to obtain the desired results and most people have an average of eight treatments spaced one week apart. However, your provider will work with you to determine an ideal treatment plan that fits your needs.
Venus Freeze™ has no downtime, so you can return to your routine as soon as the treatment has ended. Some people may experience redness or feelings of warmth around the treatment area that last for a couple of hours after treatment. You may notice results after the first treatment, but it can take time for the collagen and elastin to be produced. In most cases, your results will continue to improve for about 3-4 months and the final results will be noted around that time. Since Venus Freeze™ does not stop the aging process and the amounts of collagen and elastin will eventually decrease, maintenance treatments may be recommended.
TriBella™ is a 3-in-1 skin therapy developed by Venus Treatments. This technique uses a combination of intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial treatments, Venus Viva™ anti-aging treatments, and Diamond Polar skin resurfacing to thoroughly rejuvenate the skin and improve its appearance.
TriBella™ starts by using an IPL applicator to target sun damage, brown spots, redness, and broken capillaries. The light is precisely delivered through several layers of skin where it generates heat when absorbed by the targeted tissue. This allows for the removal of pigmentations without damage to the surrounding area.
Next, the DiamondPolar applicator is used to deliver a combination of energy and heat below the skin. This promotes blood flow, which stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. The result is skin will have a decrease in wrinkles and fine lines.
Finally, TriBella™ uses a nano-fractional radio frequency applicator to resurface the skin by creating micro-injuries to trigger the body to produce collagen and elastin. This repairs skin damage, as well as reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other uneven skin texture.
TriBella™ works best for individuals with signs of aging, as well as uneven skin tone or texture. During a TriBella™ treatment, people report feeling different sensations based on the type of treatment being performed. For example, the photofacial creates a snapping sensation, the anti-aging treatment causes warmth, and the resurfacing treatment can cause heat and a sensation of skin prickling. The entire treatment takes about an hour an a half, and a total of three treatments spaced 4-5 weeks apart are recommended to obtain the best results.
There is about 3-5 days of downtime associated with TriBella™, and the skin will likely remain red for a few days after the procedure. It is also necessary to wear sunscreen for 24-48 hours after the procedure and to avoid makeup for the first few days. Many people notice a difference after the first treatment, however it takes about three months to see the full effect.
Which is Best?
Now that we have reviewed each individual treatment, it is time to compare and contrast them. So, which one is the best?
Well, it depends on your individual needs. Venus Freeze™ is a great option if you are looking for a non-invasive treatment with little downtime that will improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Venus Freeze™ is also an ideal option for individuals who have cellulite on the buttocks, thighs, belly, or other areas. Finally, Venus Freeze™ can be used for all skin tones without causing hyperpigmentation.
TriBella™ is better suited for those who want to improve the appearance of skin pigments, signs of aging, and uneven skin tone. Although TriBella™ offers a more comprehensive treatment, it can only be used on the face and requires 3-5 days of downtime following the procedure. Since part of the TriBella™ treatment includes IPL, however, it may not be ideal for all skin tones.
Overall, both treatments are safe and effective ways to achieve younger-looking skin. Nevertheless, you should make an appointment to speak with your provider to discuss your needs and skincare goals to see which one is best for you.
