Why choose Venus Legacy
Age is accompanied by a number of physical changes. Not only does the body start storing more fat but collagen levels decrease too. Love handles, sagging skin, wrinkles and cellulite are all common occurrences after a certain age. These are also concerns that can be treated using the Venus Legacy system.
Even with a healthy diet and a solid exercise routine, you can still struggle with unwanted fat, cellulite and loose skin. It can be frustrating to put in the effort only to find that you still can’t reach your goals. This is where Venus Legacy comes in.
Using heat, Venus Legacy treatments help break down fat cells, tighten loose skin, boost collagen production and create a smoother, more contoured appearance. The system generates heat using multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields. This heat penetrates the deeper layers of the skin to help you achieve your body shaping goals.
To burn unwanted pockets of fat, the heat from the applicator causes the fat cells to excrete oils without damaging them. This is what reduces the appearance of loose skin and cellulite. The magnetic field that’s created by the multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields also helps speed up healing after each session.
The Venus Legacy system is safe for all skin tones, dark included, and treatments are both safe and comfortable. Since this is completely non-invasive, no downtime is required either, one of the many reasons why treatments are so popular.
If you already lead a healthy lifestyle and need an additional boost to create your desired silhouette, Venus Legacy treatments may be right for you.
What to Expect
Venus Legacy treatments generally don’t take longer than 60 minutes – it all depends on the area or number of areas being treated. No anaesthetic is required to complete the treatment.
Prior to your session, it’s best to be as hydrated as possible. This is because the radiofrequency energy interacts with the water molecules in the skin. Staying hydrated helps generate better results. The skin should also be free of creams, lotions and makeup prior to treatment.
Once the applicator is applied to the target area, the temperature will gradually increase. After the desired temperature is reached, the applicator will maintain that temperature throughout your treatment. If for any reason the temperature becomes uncomfortable, let your clinician know and we will lower it accordingly.
The Venus Legacy system also has a VariPulse feature, which gently suctions the skin as the applicator is moved across the treated area. Again, if the suctioning sensation feels too intense, it can be adjusted. The aim is to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
The number of treatments required will depend on the area being treated. On average, the face and neck require about six treatments, while other areas of the body need about eight. One treatment can be scheduled every week.
You are free to return to your usual activities directly after your Venus Legacy appointment.

Venus Legacy Results
Patients can expect to see a noticeable difference after several Venus Legacy sessions. In most instances, results are visible after three to four months. Since your skin and body will continue to age, maintenance treatments will be required. The number of treatments required will vary between patients. It’s also important for patients to continue to lead a healthy lifestyle to enhance and maintain their results.
Since Venus Legacy is completely non-invasive, no downtime is required either, one of the many reasons why treatments are so popular.
