Frequently asked questions about the Venus Legacy™
What does the Venus Legacy treat?
The treatment process for the Venus Legacy starts with a consultation with one of our aestheticians.
Examples of common concerns the Venus Legacy treats include:
- Loose Skin
- Stretch Marks
- Puffiness under the eyes
While these conditions may sound varied, the Venus Legacy smooths skin and stimulates the growth of collagen, an elastic fiber that reduces wrinkling. The technology can be used on virtually any part of the body, including the face, stomach, thighs, and neck.
How Does the Venus Legacy Work?
The Venus Legacy is a handheld wand-like device with small, smooth metal attachments on the end. The treatment combines a number of effective methods in smoothing skin and encouraging collagen production. These include radio frequency and magnetic pulses. When the wand is moved over areas of wrinkled and dimpled skin, the following occurs:
- Penetrates the skin’s surface to reach well below and stimulate cell growth
- Stimulates collagen and elastin production to tighten skin
- Improves blood flow to dermal blood vessels, bringing vital nutrients and oxygen to the skin to improve the skin’s appearance
- Induces lipolysis, or the destruction of fat pockets in the skin, this reducing the appearance of cellulite
Also, the Venus Legacy generates heat, which helps collagen fibers contract and make the skin noticeably tighter almost immediately.
Does the Venus Legacy Hurt?
The treatment’s warmth and skin stimulation feels like a relaxing hot stone massage.
How Many Sessions are Required in Order to Get Results?
Generally, the recommended number of treatment sessions is 5-7 for the face and 8-10 for the body. However, the number of treatments may vary depending on the patient’s body type.
How Long Does the Venus Legacy Treatment Take?
While the total treatment time depends on the area treated, the average treatment time for the Venus Legacy is 30 minutes. There is no downtime and patients can return to their daily activities immediately.
When Can I Expect Results?
You can expect to see some results almost immediately. Your skin may appear tighter and smoother. However, the long-term results of new collagen and elastin growth may take a few weeks to see.
