You no longer need to dream about what your body would look like without cellulite. Venus Legacy™ is a popular body contouring procedure that eradicates the dimples and mounds that so many women have had to deal with over the years. Instead of ointments and creams that only stimulate the outer layers of skin, Venus Legacy™ addresses the root causes of cellulite to create long-term results.
Is Cellulite Just Fat?
Many of us will gain weight as we grow older, but extra subcutaneous fat isn’t the only cause of cellulite. Just above your body fat is a network of connective tissue that keeps your skin tight and firm. Over the years, the strands can unevenly pull at the skin as fat pushes through the openings. These conditions are what create cellulite. Unfortunately, surface treatments do very little to get rid of cellulite. In many cases, they do nothing more than hydrate the skin for a short period of time.
The single most effective way to prevent cellulite is to stay at a healthy weight. By doing this, there will be less fat to push through the connective strands. Weight fluctuations can also increase one’s risk of developing cellulite.
Gaining and losing weight repeatedly often creates skin laxity problems and weakens the connective strands. Once cellulite has developed, however, most women will need to consider professional treatments, such as Venus Legacy™, to see real results.
The Science Behind Venus Legacy™
Venus Legacy™ utilizes two unique forms of energy to create amazing results. The applicators channel magnetic pulses to break apart fat cells and smooth the patient’s skin. This is followed by radio frequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that your body creates to heal damaged cells. When our bodies no longer produce enough collagen, many of us struggle with issues like cellulite.
What to Expect
Each treatment session takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to complete. Patients don’t need to do anything to prepare for their treatment other than wear comfortable clothing that can easily be adjusted to expose the cellulite. The Venus Legacy™ specialist will then pull a small device across the treatment site. Most patients liken the experience to a relaxing hot stone massage. Depending on where the cellulite is located, you should be able to read or relax during the session.
Every patient has different needs, but most require at least six to eight treatment sessions. These appointments can be spaced out over the course of a few weeks. Many people are so happy with the results that they continue to schedule additional appointments for other cosmetic issues. Venus Legacy™ can help with issues such as extra pockets of fat and loose skin after giving birth.
