Non-invasive Body Contouring
Our bodies change during different stages of our lives. It is not uncommon for some problem areas to be resistant to diet and exercise.
As you get older, your body starts to produce less collagen, store more fat, and eventually lead to wrinkles, cellulite, and other signs of aging.
Radiofrequency body contouring technology is Venus Legacy uses heat to boost collagen production, which smoothens out cellulite naturally, improves the look of sagging skin, and diminishes wrinkles on the face and body.
Procedure of Radio-frequency Body Contouring
Radiofrequency body contouring treatments are comfortable. The level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted to suit you. The applicator will slowly get warmer till your skin reaches the needed temperature and stays within that temperature range. This procedure can also lower if required. Each session takes 15-30 minutes. Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area, performed once a week.
A good candidate for Radiofrequency body contouring
The best candidate is someone who has pockets of cellulite and excess body fat 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.
