Conveniently located no more than half an hour from Surrey, Langley, and White Rock, at Delta Laser & Skin Care Centre in Delta, BC, we are passionate about helping clients. Many of our clients seek Venus Legacy to remove fat and smooth the skin, and while there are more popular body contouring treatments, they are not more effective or safer.
In fact, laser- or freezing-based treatments can trigger flare-ups of medical conditions. Today, we answer our most frequently asked questions about Venus Legacy to help you determine if this radiofrequency treatment may help you reach your goals.
How Often Can You Do Venus Legacy?
Because Venus Legacy treatments are so safe and effective, there is no limit to how many treatment sessions you can receive. Regarding time between treatments, years of research have identified that this treatment is the most effective when sessions are spaced one week apart.
Keep in mind that skin rejuvenation, tightening, lifting, and smoothing are achieved by your skin producing stronger collagen and elastin. While you will see an immediate improvement in the aesthetic of your skin, it can take three to four months to see the final results.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
On average, our clients require between six and eight treatment sessions per targeted area. However, this varies from person to person and the treatment area to the treatment area. To really know how many sessions you will need based on your current aesthetic and desired aesthetic, it is very important that you come in for an evaluation.
What Results Can I Achieve?
The great thing about radiofrequency treatment is the results you can achieve are virtually limitless. Usually, treatment with this device is used to remove excess fat from a targeted region. However, the radiofrequency energy results in a powerful, healing warmth. This warmth encourages your skin to grow stronger collagen and elastin fibers.
The incredible thing about collagen and elastin is these are the special proteins and fibers that keep your skin tight, young, hydrated, smooth, and healthy. In other words, treatment with this device will result in smoother skin, whether your texture issues are caused by wrinkles or cellulite. Your skin will also be lifted if it sags.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
One of the best things about the Venus Legacy radiofrequency system is that it is completely customizable. We have the option of using four different handpieces, and it is not uncommon for us to use multiple handpieces in one treatment session. The different sizes and shapes of the handpieces give us the opportunity to treat virtually any part of your body.
For example, we may use one handpiece to address excess fat around the chin and jowls. Then, during the same session, use a different handpiece to target the middle back, upper arms, thighs, buttocks, or belly.
How Long Will the Results Last?
The longevity of results varies on a case-by-case basis depending on several factors, including the issues addressed. For example, the fat removal benefits of treatment are permanent. Adults cannot grow new fat cells. Therefore, when the heat from the radiofrequency energy kills and liquefies your excess fat cells, they are gone for good.
In the case of skin lifting and tightening, the results may last two to five years depending on your age. In general, the older you are, the weaker your collagen and elastin are. Particularly if you are not receiving professional aesthetic treatments to boost the production of collagen regularly, your skin will start to sag faster.
How Can I Extend the Results of Treatment?
To extend the results of your treatment, it is important to make caring for your skin health a top priority. One of the most important things you can do is protect the production rate and integrity of your skin’s collagen. To do this, quit smoking if you are a smoker. Do not exceed the CDC’s recommendations if you drink regularly. Also, eat healthy foods.
It may seem that every summer there is a new magazine cover claiming to reveal “the one fruit that skincare specialists don’t want you to know about.” While there is no magic fruit to make your skin look years younger, making sure there is plenty of collagen (found in fruit) in your diet will help your skin keep up its production rate of strong collagen.
What if I Can’t Get Enough Collagen in My Diet?
If you have trouble squeezing all your necessary nutrients into your diet, you’re not alone. It doesn’t matter if your restrictions are based on religious or environmental ethics, money, time, medical issues, or any other factor. Take collagen supplements and make sure to take a multi-vitamin, too, if you’re not getting in all of your vitamins.
We strongly encourage our clients who aren’t too confident in their diet to seek a licensed nutritionist to create a “diet” for them. Keep in mind that your diet is simply the way you choose to eat, whether your goal is fat loss, muscle building, or maintaining your body composition.
How Do I Prepare for Treatment?
Preparing for treatment with this device is simple. All you need to do is make sure your skin is clean before you come in for your appointment. This means that you should wash the treatment area with a gentle face or body soap and warm water. Do not wear any makeup, piercings, lotions, or perfumes on the treatment site when you come in.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Your treatment will be completely free of pain or downtime. Because this treatment is non-invasive, there will be no sedation or general anesthesia to put you to sleep. This means that you may tell us if you start to feel too warm during treatment. We are more than happy to accommodate your unique tolerance to heat to ensure your total comfort.
Can I Get This On My Lunch Break?
We understand that your life is busy and it’s hard to schedule a time for self-care. Luckily, each treatment session will last just between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area you are treating and the results you are looking for. This makes it the perfect treatment to schedule during your lunch break.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
After treatment, you will feel relaxed and refreshed. Due to the warmth of the radiofrequency energy, you will feel after treatment as if you received a hot stone massage combined with a gentle deep tissue massage. There is no pain or downtime after treatment.
How Should I Care for My Skin After Treatment?
When we say there is no pain or downtime after treatment, we mean that there is no pain, discomfort, downtime, or recovery period after treatment. Unlike laser or chemical peel treatments, your skin will not be sensitive to the sun after treatment. This means you do not need to worry about sunscreen any more than you should already for the health of your skin.
Again, this is the perfect treatment to schedule on your lunch break because you are free to apply makeup, lotion, jewelry, and any other cosmetics or accessories as you see fit. There are no restrictions on your daily activities related to treatment. However, we advise that you think carefully before you pick up alcohol or a tobacco product.
How Is This Treatment Different From Other Body Contouring Treatments?
Radiofrequency treatment with this device is light years away from other body contouring treatments due to its advanced 4D technology. To deliver results superior to any other technology on the market, it combines multi-polar radio frequency, pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF), and VariPulse technology (VP) with real-time thermal feedback.
What Is VariPulse Technology?
VariPulse technology is the technology that truly sets treatment with this device above all other options. It marries multi-pulse technology with gentle, powerful varying suction to create an unparalleled matrix of heat. This allows the perfect amount of heat to penetrate different layers of your skin to enhance your aesthetic.
The heat penetrates your skin deeper than any other device can achieve because the adjustable pulsed suction pulls your skin away from your body. As importantly, this precise heat application doesn’t just trigger skin tightening and cellulite reduction. It also encourages enhanced circulation capabilities.
What’s the Importance of Enhanced Circulation Capabilities?
To understand the importance of enhanced circulation capabilities, it is important that you first understand how any non-invasive fat removal treatment works. Non-invasive fat removal treatments work by killing your fat cells. Once cell death occurs, the dead fat cells are swept up by your lymphatic system and travel through your body.
They end up in your gut and are processed by deoxycholic acid. This chemical compound usually processes dietary fat. Eventually, your fat cells are eliminated the same way. The stronger your circulatory system is, the stronger your lymphatic system is, and the sooner you get your toned body.
How Can I See Fat Removal Results Even Faster?
If you believe coming in at second place means that you are just the first loser, you are probably wondering if there is any way to see your body contouring results even faster. There are! To see the fastest fat removal results, massage the treated area using the “Rule of 5” to guide you.
Massage yourself for five minutes at a time, five times daily during the first five days after treatment. If you eat well, drink lots of water, and exercise regularly on top of this, you will see your results in no time at all.
Good Candidates for Radiofrequency Treatments
The only way to tell if you are the ideal candidate for radiofrequency treatment is to come in for an initial consultation. The most significant deciding factor is the results you are trying to achieve. Unlike other body contouring and skin rejuvenation treatments, particularly laser and chemical peel treatments, radiofrequency treatments are perfect for clients with lots of melanin.
If your skin has lots of melanin, treatment with lasers or acids may cause severe burns and skin bleaching. With radiofrequency treatments, you don’t have to worry about any such side effects. However, we do recommend women who are pregnant or nursing hold off on receiving treatment until they are no longer pregnant or nursing.
