As we age, our bodies produce less collagen while storing more fat. This can cause wrinkles, sagging, cellulite, and other skin concerns, which may leave us feeling unhappy about our appearance. One way to treat these issues is with Venus Legacy, a gentle treatment that uses heat and suction to help you achieve your ideal body. The treatment is safe, fast, and effective, with results that last for years with proper maintenance. Venus Legacy treatments are not permanent, and follow up appointments are therefore recommended for long term results. Here’s what you need to know about this body sculpting option and how often you should make an appointment for treatment.
What is Venus Legacy?
Venus Legacy is a nonsurgical and noninvasive treatment — no incisions or stitches required — that uses gentle heat and suction to help break down fat cells. Using multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields, the Venus Legacy device heats up the tissue beneath the skin and gradually gets warmer over the course of the treatment for maximum results. The suction, which occurs simultaneously, helps the heat penetrate deeper into your skin, breaking down more fat and helping tighten the skin. Venus Legacy can be used to tone areas like the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and legs; Venus Legacy is safe, effective, and requires no downtime, making it an ideal choice for people who need to return to their busy schedules right away.
How Often is Venus Legacy Treatment Necessary?
Most patients will receive between six and eight treatments per target area, with the exact number depending on your body’s reaction to Venus Legacy. These initial treatments should be completed once per week. The frequency of treatments at this stage helps prevent fat cells from rebuilding themselves and begins to stimulate collagen and elastin production, both of which are necessary for youthful and smoother looking skin.
After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve over the next three to four months thanks to the increased collagen production that Venus Legacy stimulates. Maintenance appointments are recommended but, as with the initial treatment, the number and scheduling vary from person to person. Typically, appointments are recommended either every month or every three to four months, depending on how your body responds to Venus Legacy treatments. Speak with your medical esthetician to determine the ideal treatment schedule for your beauty goals, and keep in mind that not following this schedule can cause your results to fade more and more with time.
Benefits of Venus Legacy
After finishing the initial round of Venus Legacy treatment, you’ll notice that the target areas appear slimmer and more sculpted, with tighter skin and reduced cellulite. The treatment can also improve blood flow and lessen the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks. Venus Legacy helps increase your levels of collagen and elastin fibers naturally, which in turn prolongs your results and provides long term benefits after your initial round of treatments is over. These results can last for years by following the treatment schedule recommended by your medical esthetician.
Is Venus Legacy Right for You?
The treatment is safe and effective on all skin types tones. It is typically painless, with many patients reporting that the treatment feels like receiving a hot stone massage. Your medical esthetician may be able to adjust the heat and suction slightly if necessary for your comfort. Treatments typically take between 15 and 30 minutes, and you can return to your daily routine immediately after your appointment.
Speak with your doctor before scheduling a Venus Legacy appointment. If you have a history of cancer, inflammation or infection near the treatment area, a defibrillator, a pacemaker, metal implants, a thyroid disorder, varicose veins, silicone implants or fillers in the treatment area, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, the Venus Legacy treatment may not be the right choice for you.
