Dr. Elizabeth Morency enjoys the distinction of “being first.” Receiving her medical degree at the University of Laval, the first French-language university in North America, she was also one of the first physicians to partner with Venus Concept at the launch of our first ground-breaking product, Venus Freeze. In fact, she was already a pioneer in visioning the possibilities.
Long familiar with “the early use” of radio frequency (RF) for improving skin tone, Dr. Morency was primed and excited by the newest RF opportunities and the dramatic improvements she could now offer her patients. “Venus Freeze allowed us to go further in our treatments than ever before.”
"One distinctive quality of Venus Viva is that it transmits heat deeper into the dermis to stimulate new collagen and greatly improve skin tone."
With its patented technology in Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields, Venus Freeze was not only setting new standards in skin-tightening but also in reducing body circumference, pockets of fat and the most problematic area to about 90% of all women – cellulite! Without the risk, pain, expense and downtime of surgery, including liposuction, here was something for Dr. Morency to be excited about.
Building upon the success of Venus Freeze, today, Dr. Morency has introduced the full complement of Venus Concept non-invasive devices to her practice: Venus Legacy and Venus Viva. “One distinctive quality of Venus Viva is that it transmits heat deeper into the dermis,” she notes, “where collagen and elastin fibers contract to stimulate new collagen and greatly improve skin tone. The tiny lesions that form on the skin’s surface ensure that when the skin is renewed, it’s smoother and more uniform.”
“Until now, there just hasn’t been very much available for non-invasive tightening the neck area… Venus Viva is extraordinary.”
After seeing first-hand the real-life versatility of the Venus Viva technology, Dr. Morency expanded its use to include treatments, not only for the face, but for the neck and delicate area of the décolletage. “Until now, there just hasn’t been very much available for non-invasive tightening the neck area or removing the crepe-like texture of the décolleté. Venus Viva is extraordinary – it’s all we really have that uses advanced, multi-polar radio frequency.”
In addition to enhanced skin tone, Dr. Morency discovered other benefits for her patients. “While it was not the original reason we were treating our patients, by stimulating the dermis and epidermis, Venus Viva produced a real improvement and reduction in pigmentation in the redness and brown spots.
“It was the same for patients who had broken veins or rosacea,” Dr. Morency added. “After one treatment, they had less dilated vessels and for skin texture – people with enlarged pores saw an immediate tightening and refined quality to their skin.”
Still another advantage is the dynamic synergy between Venus Freeze, Venus Legacy, Venus Viva and many other treatments Dr. Morency performs, “Venus Viva is the perfect finishing touch for all my derma filler procedures. Once the dermal filling is satisfactory, I work on skin texture and stimulating new collagen for longer-lasting results. Venus Viva does it all. Then Venus Legacy’s added technologies, allow us to go further in our treatments and even treat new things we could never treat before.”
Often referred to as the “go-to powerhouse” in the Venus Concept lineup of devices, Dr. Morency, indeed, goes to Venus Legacy often. “With the adjustable VariPulse suction, unique to Venus Legacy,” she says, “we get better tone and reduction of contours on the abdomen or arms. Now, we have a profoundly superior treatment for cellulite, which is a natural phenomenon for so many women…no matter how much they exercise. This is a huge innovation for a very difficult area to treat.”
Focused on the most important needs and desires of her patients for non-invasive and natural-looking treatments, Dr. Morency says, “Many of our patients come to us because they do not want invasive treatments – they would never, under any circumstance, consider surgical options. They want something light, they want to look natural, real… but still refresh their face.
“That’s one of the greatest advantages of the Venus Viva,” Dr. Morency continues, “it does give a very natural effect, especially for the face. We’re not changing anything; we’re simply giving our patients, the same face they’ve always had…only younger.”
