Venus Legacy

Cellulite is a condition that occurs when the fat cells between the skin and muscles accumulate. These cells expand under pressure from the connective cords that hold skin and muscle together. The effect of this tension is what causes the “cottage cheese” look on your skin.

Diet and exercise are not always sufficient to create a toned and youthful body. Hundreds of men and women come to Dr. Glat’s plastic surgery office frustrated with their inability to remove cellulite with diet, exercise, and over-the-counter beauty products. We work with many patients who want a little extra help from our body contouring procedures, including the Venus Legacy.

Venus Legacy is an advanced non-invasive medical device that effectively resolves challenging face and body aesthetic needs, including cellulite reduction. This device delivers safe and effective treatments that smoothen out cellulite, improve the appearance of sagging skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and body comfortably with no downtime.

What is Venus Legacy?

Venus Legacy is a specific body contouring device that minimizes excess fat and skin to reveal your natural body contours and muscle tone. Body contouring is an effective treatment that Dr. Glat recommends for many of the most challenging areas of the body, including the following:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Hips

As you age, your body produces less collagen while storing more fat, eventually causing wrinkles, cellulite, and other signs of aging. As a machine for cellulite treatment, Venus Legacy uses natural heat to boost collagen production, smoothens cellulite, and diminishes wrinkles on your face and body.

How does Venus Legacy work?

Venus Legacy radio frequency skin tightening uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields. These fields produce heat under the skin’s surface, which helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers while also shrinking the volume of fat cells.

Simultaneously, an adjustable pulsed suction gently pulls the skin upward, allowing the energy to travel deeper while providing a more comfortable and effective treatment. Results from this non-invasive treatment include a body that looks slimmer and more sculpted and cellulite that almost disappears.

What are the benefits of Venus Legacy body sculpting?

Venus Legacy features the most extensive treatment area for faster coverage than any standard handpiece. Treatment times are up to 4 times shorter, meaning you will only spend 30 minutes for a facial treatment and up to 60 minutes for full-body sites.

Some other benefits include:

  • Radiofrequency skin tightening technology such as Venus Legacy has proven safe and effective for all skin tones, including darker complexions
  • Enjoy a relaxing treatment experience that delivers noticeable results
  • With no downtime, return to your daily routine immediately after Venus Legacy treatments
  • Cutting-edge VariPulse technology and Real-Time Thermal Feedback ensure ultimate comfort and reliable clinical outcomes

Another popular benefit is that most patients see results after the third treatment, while some have noted effects sooner. With FDA approval, Venus Legacy has documented that its results last a minimum of 18 months. These results will remain permanent if one session per quarter is maintained after the initial series.

An added benefit is that Dr. Glat can combine Venus Legacy treatments with other treatments, such as Coolsculpting. Coolsculpting is a genuine alternative to Liposuction because it permanently destroys fat cells. When used with Venus Legacy for an overall body makeover, first using Coolsculpting and then Venus Legacy, results include:

  • Blasted fat
  • Smooth skin
  • Reduced cellulite
  • Tightened tissue
  • Reduced appearance of stretch marks

Who is a good candidate for Venus Legacy body sculpting?

Our body contouring procedures are not weight-loss solutions, but they help patients address many problem areas resistant to traditional weight-loss approaches, such as diet and exercise. These treatments and their benefits are an excellent complement to lifestyle changes.

The best candidate has pockets of cellulite and excess body fat unresponsive to diet and exercise but does not want to pursue surgery. Venus Legacy's ideal candidates include people who are starting to lose elasticity in their skin and are showing early signs of sagging and wrinkles.

For safety reasons, you should avoid Venus Legacy body sculpting if you have or are:

  • Active infection in the treatment area
  • Current or history of cancer
  • Heat-stimulated diseases around the treatment area, such as herpes
  • An Internal defibrillator/pacemaker
  • Metal implants in the treatment area
  • Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
  • Varicose veins
  • Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure
  • Skin-related autoimmune diseases
  • Silicone implants and injections in the area
