The Venus Legacy is used for body contouring, cellulite reduction, skin tightening and wrinkle reduction for the face, neck, and body.
This machine combines radiofrequency, pulsed electromagnetic field, and varipulse. It uses a kinetic energy that when in contact with the skin creates heat. The heat is used to shrink and destroy fat cells as well as stimulate fibroblast production leading to collagen synthesis.
The entire body can be treated excluding the thyroid area and breasts. Clients typically experience tighter skin resulting in a sculpted and lifted appearance, diminished fat deposits, cellulite reduction, softening of wrinkles and a plumper, youthful look. 8 treatments are normally recommended however you may require more treatments depending on your end goal.
Venus Legacy can be used on all skin types. There is no downtime with the Venus Legacy, you can resume all normal activities immediately after treatment.
How does it work?
It uses a combination of radio frequency and magnetic pulses to treat the desired area. The radio frequency treatment penetrates into multiple layers of skin and dermal tissue; it heats the target tissue while treating the loose skin and creates enough energy to induce collagen production and increased circulation, which increases blood flow nutrients, and waste removal from the tissue. It causes the new formation of collagen, fibroblast synthesis and at higher temperatures, lipolysis. The active collagen in the skin contracts, causing the skin to look and feel firmer and elastin fibres unravel making it appear more elastic. Triggered collagen production continues for months after the treatment series. Pulsed electromagnet fields increase the vascularity of the skin and create new pathways for the blood to flow. This increase in blood will provide more oxygen to the skin and bring more nutrients to the tissue.
Is it a laser?
No, the venus technology uses a kinetic energy called radio frequency that when contacting the skin creates heat.
Does it hurt?
There may be some minor discomfort when using the technology for body contouring/fat reduction because the temperature must be kept at a higher level.
What areas can be treated?
Any area of the body can be treated except for directly over the thyroid glands on the neck and the breast tissue.
How much does it cost?
The cost of treatment depends on how big the area in question is and the number of treatments needed, therefore we have a sliding price scale that is discussed in consultations.
How long does it take?
The treatment time depends on how large the area is and the end goal of treatment. Time can range from 15-30 minutes per treatment and we recommend 8 treatments in total. Once a week for 8 weeks.
How soon do you see results?
Results are on a case by case basis. Some see results as soon as after the 3rd or 4th treatments while others don't see results until 1-3 months after the final treatment. This is because of each individual’s metabolism as well as the collagen synthesis process.
How do you maintain results?
One maintenance treatment is recommended every 3-4 months after the series is complete to keep up the results that were achieved.
Does everyone respond to this treatment?
No, not everyone responds to this type of treatment. 5-10% of the population will not respond to the radio frequency. There is no way to predict who will or who will not respond. There is also a portion of the population that are slow responders and it will take these people longer to see results.
