Cellulite is another name for pockets of fat that exist underneath your skin. Fat cells can start to swell up over time. The pockets of fat begin to push against your skin when the swelling gets very bad or when the deposits become too large. The result is the appearance of bumps or dimples above the areas where the cellulite is located. It can be very difficult to get rid of these bumps using just diet and exercise. The Venus Legacy system specifically targets the cellulite in your body.
The Technology behind Venus Legacy
The Venus Legacy system uses a combination of technologies to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The treatment uses powerful laser energy. It also uses the energy from regular visible light. Both of these types of energy are tuned to a specific frequency. This frequency allows the energy to pass harmlessly through your skin to reach the cellulite. The energy will affect only the fat cells. The system also involves using a vacuum to hold the skin still during treatment and massaging motions to break up the cellulite.
How the Treatment Works
The Venus Legacy treatment works by reducing the size of the fat cells in the cellulite pockets. The energy used heats the cellulite. It also causes some of the fat to be released into the body in a liquid form. The fat is quickly removed from the body just like other liquids. Part of the treatment also involves massaging the areas being targeted. Massaging the cellulite breaks apart some structures under your skin that hold the fat cells together. This loosens the cells and allows the treatment to work more effectively. The treatment can be done on small or large areas of cellulite.
Fast Results and No Recovery
You will see results very quickly after receiving the Venus Legacy treatment for cellulite. Some patients report seeing results after only one treatment, but you’ll continue to results with multiple treatments. For best results, it’s recommended to receive a minimum of six treatments for the face, eight on the neck and ten on the body. You will see noticeable results within a few weeks to a month after starting. The bumps caused by the cellulite will slowly fade away, leaving smooth skin behind in the area. The results of the treatment can last for up to six months. Additionally, Venus Legacy treatments do not require long recovery times. You can go back to your normal daily routine immediately after the treatment.
