If you’re getting a body shaping treatment done, your treatment provider will likely be using Venus Legacy™.
The best candidate is someone who has pockets of cellulite that they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise alone, and who doesn’t want surgery. An ideal candidate is also someone who is starting to lose elasticity in their skin and is showing early signs of sagging and wrinkles.
For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:
Yes. Venus Concept’s body shaping treatments use technology that’s safe for all skin tones, even darker complexions.
Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes no longer than 30 minutes.
Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
Treatments are done once a week.
Just make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.
Each session lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
The applicator will slowly get warmer till your skin reaches the needed temperature and stays within that temperature range. But if you do feel it’s too hot, just let the operator know and they can easily lower the temperature a bit. If the technician is using the VariPulse™ feature, you will also feel a gentle suction on your skin, like a very low-power vacuum, as the applicator moves around the area. This can also be lowered if needed.
Venus Concept’s body shaping treatments are comfortable. The level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted to suit you.
You’ll likely feel relaxed. The treatment is comfortable and some patients have even fallen asleep. The area may feel warm to the touch, but other than that, you’ll feel perfectly normal.
The treatments are cumulative. After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve for up to 3-4 months. After that, your face and body continue to age, so maintenance is recommended once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on the person.
Absolutely no downtime. The treatment area may look a little flushed and warm to the touch, but this will go away within 1-2 hours. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
No, you do not need to do anything after your treatment.
Yes, you can apply makeup and/or lotion immediately after your treatment.
