What is the Venus Legacy Treatment?
A revolution in medical aesthetics. Venus Legacy provides clinically proven results, with no downtime, allowing you to get back to your daily activities right away. Venus Legacy is a non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring and skin tightening treatment for the face, neck and body. Venus Legacy utilizes a patented technology that combines both multi polar radio frequency (RF) along with pulsed magnetic fields (MP)². Venus (MP)2 technology uses a dense energy matrix, which penetrates multiple layers of skin, heating uniformly from the inside out. By increasing tissue temperature, localized hormone activity is enhanced, and triglycerides located in the fat cells are broken down and fatty acids are freed from the fat cells. In this way, volume can be reduced producing circumferential reduction. The blood flow in the treated area is improved, enhancing skin tone and texture. Vitamins, minerals and oxygen are carried more easily to the cells, and toxins and waste materials are removed.
Skin tightening is another result of the Venus Legacy treatment, as tiny new blood vessels are formed in the treatment areas and dermal fibroblasts are created; fibroblasts then increase the number of collagen and elastin fibers. New collagen and elastin creation results in tighter skin and filling in of wrinkles/wrinkle reduction.
How many treatments do I need?
Venus Legacy requires several treatments to provide results although many see results with their first treatment. We will discuss this during your assessment.
Does it hurt?
No! This treatment is designed to be pain free. The applicators deliver heat beneath the skin to break down deep-levels of fatty tissue. Some individuals find it to be comforting and relaxing.
Are the treatments safe?
Yes! Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulse Therapy have been used in medicine for many years and are FDA-Approved, proven, safe and effective technologies. Our Medical Consultants will review your medical history and your aesthetic goals to see if the Venus Legacy treatments are right for you.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with Venus Legacy. Area treatment to one area takes less than 30 minutes, and has no adverse side effects. You are able to have a treatment on your lunch break and return to work right away.
When will I see results, and how long does it last?
Most patients typically see results after the third treatment, however many have noted results even sooner. With FDA approval, Venus Legacy has documented its results to last a minimum 18 months, but will continue to last on going if one session per quarter is maintained after the series..
What should I expect immediately following the procedure?
You may have some temporary redness in the area, which usually resolves within an hour. You will want to be active after the procedure as the triglycerides are being released, as to not have them reabsorb back into the fat cells. You don’t necessarily need to exercise, as even mild movement will do, as long as you just don’t go to sleep right away.
What body parts can be treated with Venus Legacy?
Face, Neck, Arms, Abdomen, Flanks, Buttocks, Thighs
What should I wear to my appointment?
We recommend wearing washable clothes, as the gel we use could get onto clothing and possibly leave a stain. However, we do try to protect your clothes carefully when performing the treatment.
