I decided not to publish the post I originally wrote for today. I’ll explain why at our next meeting of Cellulite Support. In its place, I wanted to send out this quick Request For Information.
A few weeks ago, I received this comment/question from a CI reader:
What about new cellulite removal toronto treatment called Venus Freeze? how effective is this? I hear people saying this is way better than velashape but I’m not so confident in what people just say…..I need to know an opinion from someone that actually tried it.
I’m accustomed to receiving requests like this from CI readers who are curious about all kinds of anti cellulite treatments, from pills and creams like Celluscience and Procellix to treatments, both natural and not-so-much. Has anyone out there tried the Venus Freeze Anti Cellulite treatment?
Being the ever-diligent cellulite investigator that I am (or that I try to be), I dutifully set out to find someone who tried Venus Freeze and could provide an honest review. I had never heard of the treatment before, but the reader left a link to a Toronto-based clinic that offers the procedure.
I hit the internet in search of a real woman who could tell us about her experience with Venus Freeze. After reading this page of testimonials, I even tracked down one of the patients on Facebook and asked if she would mind answering a few questions for those of us who are curious about the treatment. I did not hear back from her.
Lucky for me, a fellow cellulite sleuth already investigated this treatment and she was kind enough to share the details of her experience with us here at CI (thanks, Sid!). Here’s what she had to say about the Venus Freeze anti cellulite treatment:
I’m in Toronto and I’ve tried it – but at a different medspa than the one you’ve linked to. I had 3 – 30 minute sessions and noticed no difference in cellulite, though my skin may be a bit firmer. Regarding the Venus Freeze they say that if you’ll notice a difference for cellulite it will be apparent after 3 sessions, so for me this is a no-go. The only thing that has ever gotten rid of my cellulite has been exercise and proper diet.
At the medspa I went to the vast majority of clients were using this machine for their tummies (and apparently in that area almost everyone gets results). Despite the impressive cellulite reduction photos the company puts out I got the impression that most people actually using it for cellulite were getting the same results I did. If anyone did want to try this – or any of the other tightening treatments that are out there I would suggest checking out the group buying coupon sites for your area – there are sometimes great deals for this type of thing.
Of course, there’s that familiar disclaimer that she didn’t go for enough treatments. It’s always a challenge to get around that one. Has anyone else tried Venus Freeze? Please add your comments below.
I’m still figuring out how to set up our forum, but feel free to come over and say hi while I’m working on it. It’s always nice to hear from my fellow cellulite investigators!
