venus freeze diamond polar
The Venus Freeze Diamond Polar is a non-invasive dermatological treatment system combines Multi Polar Radiofrequency and Pulsed Magnetic Fields. The radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin and results in tissue heating that has known effect on skin laxity, the magnetic field that is simultaneously induces increases fibroblast collagen production through non thermal mechanism and contributes to the clinical effect of skin laxity improvement. Only the Diamond Polar applicator will be used in this study for the treatment of the Mons pubis, vaginal introitus and Labia. Minor modification to the hand-piece for operator and/or patient comfort may occur mid-study, however no change in range of energy modality or amount of energy delivered will occur at any point during the study.
