Any time is always right to improve your body contour and skin texture, especially if you are beginning to experience natural signs of aging. Many patients who come into New Visage ask about laser therapy as a treatment option for tightening their skin and softening fine line wrinkles in their skin, and we’re proud to offer an innovative solution that not only reduces wrinkles and lines but also melts fat and eliminates cellulite following a number of treatment sessions. Using Venus Legacy laser treatment, you can work toward firmer skin and a defined figure without any invasive techniques or downtime. If you have stubborn body fat that simply will not respond to diet and exercise or are looking to slow down your skin’s aging process, then treatment with Venus Legacy may be right for you.
How Do Venus Legacy Treatments Work?
Venus Legacy is a gentle, non-ablative laser treatment that targets unwanted fat cells in the body along with fine line wrinkles on the face, neck, and décolletage. The system uses Multi-Polar Radiofrequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, to tighten the skin and promote an even skin texture. Venus Legacy also combines its (MP)2 technology with VariPulse, which is responsible for suctioning the skin to achieve deeper penetration and increase collagen production that works to regenerate skin cells. The system consists of four laser applicators that are specifically designed for the various areas patients may want to be treated. The LB1 and LB2 applicators are most effective for larger treatment areas since they provide more coverage while the LF1 and LF2 applicators are for smaller regions like the face and neck. There is minimal discomfort and near-immediate results within the very first treatment session, making it an effective solution for combating aging skin.
Venus Legacy is used to treat:
- Facial wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Fat accumulation
The laser works by administering heat onto the surface of the skin, which actively penetrates deeper layers and causes a thermal reaction in the skin’s tissues. This reaction is what activates your body’s natural healing process to respond and alleviate the stress caused by the thermal stimulation. When these stress hormones are released into your body, they trigger an enzyme that is capable of breaking down fat cells in areas targeted by the Venus Legacy laser. The same can be said for fine lines and wrinkles that are affecting areas on and around the face. This is a non-ablative laser that’s adjustable to specific treatment areas and is capable of enacting the same healing process within the skin on the face. Your skin will look and feel rejuvenated, and the tired, worn skin cells that are making you look older will be gone.
What Is Treatment Like?
Your treatment with Venus Legacy begins with a consultation with a laser specialist at New Visage, who will examine your skin quality, learn about your cosmetic desires, and review your medical history. It’s important that we know whether you have undergone other cosmetic procedures to enhance your body contour so that we can better predict the results of your treatment with Venus Legacy. Your consultation is a time for you to understand the risks, results, and expectations associated with laser treatment, which is what will lead to your satisfaction when your procedure is complete.
When you come in for treatment, you should be makeup, lotion, and jewelry-free. This will ensure your complete safety as well as the applicator’s full exposure to the treatment area to produce the best results. Our laser specialists will make sure you are completely comfortable before applying glycerin gel to the treatment area that helps the applicator move smoothly over your skin. You will likely have to undergo multiple treatments to get the full results you are looking for; Venus Legacy treatment is very gentle and may take some time to produce full effects. However, each session is no more than 30-minutes long, depending on the area being treated. The number of laser procedures required is determined during a consultation with a laser specialist at New Visage, but generally, face and neck treatments involve six to eight sessions while a treatment to the body can involve up to 10 appointments. Patients will come in for their procedure once a week until their optimal results are reached.
What Are the Side Effects?
Side effects from Venus Legacy treatment are generally mild, but may include heat sensations during and after each procedure, which could cause some discomfort in patients. The skin may also appear to be red for a few hours after receiving laser therapy. If too much heat is administered to a single area or the temperature of the device is too high (a result of poor administration from an inexperienced operator), skin burning may result, however, each of our laser specialists are professionally trained and certified to administer laser therapy using the Venus Legacy.
You can sit back and decompress while you receive treatment with the Venus Legacy, which is proven to improve your skin up to three months after having the procedure performed.
