A couple of days back, I experienced a very effective facial contouring session by Venus Concept at Singapore Tower Club and I'm here to share my experience.
Venus Concept is a revolutionary leader in medical aesthetics. Led by a team of Israeli experts, the company utilizes specialized, high performance technology in their medical devices to treat skin and body problems.
That night, I learnt about two non-invasive treatments under Venus Concept - Venus Legacy and Venus Viva.
Venus Legacy helps to contour the face and body; reduces cellulite; burns fat and firms skin. As for Venus Viva, it is more specific for the face and helps to reduce acne scarring, wrinkles and other facial issues.
I chose to try the Venus Legacy to do facial contouring. Here's a picture of me and the pretty aesthetician who has helped me to contour my face. :)
I was one of the first few to try the treatments so I had other bloggers hovering around me watching the process. Now, it's my turn to hover around other people! :D

This is the Venus Legacy machine used for contouring the face and body.
The larger tools are used to contour the body while the smaller ones are for the face. This machine uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, VariPulse Technology and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to penetrate the skin, stimulate collagen production and tighten weak collagen bonds. When your collagen bonds are tightened, they automatically firm and lift the skin.
A contact gel was first applied before the tool was used to massage and firm my face. The aesthetician ensured that more massaging was done against my cheek and chin to lift it and create a V-shaped face.
The sensation was warm initally and will get increasingly warmer so if you cannot tolerate the heat, you can let the aesthetician know so that they can monitor the temperature. Not to worry, it will not get to the point when you scald your face. It should also feel rather relaxing like a regular facial massage.

After testing out on the right side of my face, I was shocked because holy mama, it really worked!
Did you see that my right face looked comparatively smaller and slimmer than my left? I even had that V-shaped effect on the right! I was so amazed.
Excuse my pinkish cheeks, I have sensitive skin so I do get red when mild heat is in contact with my cheeks. Redness will subside after 30 minutes to 1 hour though. By the time I reached home, there was no more redness.
This is the Venus Viva machine that uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency and SmartScan Technology to deliver energy through the skin, thereby stimulating fibroblasts and collagen production. In the process, it reduces wrinkles, acne scarring and results in a better complexion.
I never got to try this but I've seen Before and After photos of other patients. Got to admit that it was pretty darn effective in improving problematic skin conditions.
Treats to fill our stomach for dinner. Thank you Brand Cellar SG for feeding us!
