Body Contouring is essentially achieved when the temperature of the skin is elevated, as the body releases stress hormones. These hormones pass through the bloodstream and attach themselves to specific receptors on the membrane of the fat cell in the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin). The stress hormone, once attached to the receptor, activates an enzyme called lipase, which is what helps to break down triglycerides into free fatty acids. The free fatty acids exit the fat cell through the bloodstream and the volume of the fat cell is thus reduced, giving the body a smoother, more contoured shape.

WHAT IS VENUS LEGACY?
Venus Legacy™ uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers, while also shrinking the volume of fat cells. At the same time, an adjustable pulsed suction (called VariPulse™) gently works to pull the skin upward, allowing the energy to travel deeper and providing more comfortable and effective treatment. The result is a body that looks slimmer and more sculpted, skin that looks tighter, and cellulite that almost disappears.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Each treatment can take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the area. You may see a slight pinkness on the skin afterward, but it should dissipate within an hour or so. You can expect to see results as the treatments progress – a minimum of six treatments is recommended for the face, and eight for other parts of the body. The number of treatment sessions depends upon the area being treated; however, it is not uncommon for patients to see continuing improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.
