Cellulite is a
very common aesthetic problem
Non-Invasive Body Contouring /
A problem that affects men and women, those who are athletic and those who lead more sedentary lives.
While surgical liposuction was once the go-to option for permanent fat reduction and body contouring in Toronto, plastic surgery procedures are not without potential health risks and high financial cost. More often in recent years, discerning clients seek safe, effective, non-surgical methods to remove excess body fat and smooth the look of their figure without the need for anesthetic downtime or scars. While the cosmetic and beauty industry is inundated with products and treatments that claim to reduce fat, there are few, non-invasive medical technologies available which are both powerful and reliable to affect real, visible improvements and permanent fat reduction.
Cellulite is a very common aesthetic problem, characterized by the uneven texture and dimpled, lumpy skin contours. Its cause is related to subcutaneous fat located under the skin between connective tissues. These fat deposits herniate and bulge between points of tethered, fibrous connective bands which help form structure and adhesion between our tissues. These areas of protruding, thickened fat can change the shape of body parts such as legs, buttocks and arms. The skin surface may also change to resemble orange peel or cottage cheese texture. Luckily, cellulite isn’t dangerous or unhealthy for a person the way that intra-abdominal, visceral fat around the internal organs is. That type of fat deep in the belly must be shed through diet and exercise and can greatly affect a person’s health. Up to 80% of adult women and many men suffer from the appearance of cellulite and fat deposits on their bodies, so advances in technology such as the patented, Venus Legacy, RF device, combining both multi polar radio frequency, (RF) and pulsed magnetic fields, (MP) comes as exciting news because it can eliminate this stubborn problem for good.
What are my options for Body Sculpting? /
Causes for visible body contour changes related to fat include hormonal and genetic influences.
Women often suffer from cellulite more than men because estrogen may be a large factor. For this reason, dieting and regular exercise can only do so much, and when you have done all you can on your own to get healthy, come to see us for body contouring help with the revolutionary Venus RF system.
Venus Legacy’s non-invasive body contouring device was recently FDA approved in Canada, so our clinic is one of the few, exclusive locations to offer this latest advancement in body contouring. It’s predecessor, the Venus Freeze RF device has been on the market since 2011 and was once the industry leader for tightening and contouring of the face and body. Venus Legacy works by using thermal energy to boost the body’s collagen production and destroy fat cells. This combination of action reduces fat from the treatment areas while simultaneously tightening and firming the overlying skin. This effectively smoothes and tones the look of cellulite and body bulges. Ideal treatment areas include:
- The neck
- Love handles, (flanks)
The Venus Legacy RF device offers safe, comfortable and non-invasive treatment which requires no downtime and causes no pain. What could be easier? Unlike some ablative lasers and surgical incisions, it is safe for all skin tones and types, without risk of damage and changes to skin pigment.
How Does this Body Contouring Technology Work? /
Venus Legacy combines two functions called Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields.
These actions produce a uniform heating of tissue under the surface of the skin. The RF or, radio-frequency is effective for stimulating the body’s own, natural healing response. The thermal stimulus increases collagen and elastin fiber formation in the skin which smoothes and tightens it. Deeper areas of fatty, subcutaneous tissue are targeted by precisely controlled heat which destroys fat cells and disperses them for elimination from the body. The massage and heat mechanism of the device stimulates increased circulation to further assist with fat elimination and healthy, rejuvenated-looking skin.
Which Body Sculpting Treatments are Available ?/
The Venus Legacy has four different applicators to suit various purposes and body areas.
These include the OctiPolar and 4D Body which are suitable for large body areas like the flanks, abdomen and thighs. DiamondPolar and 4D Face applicators are used to treat smaller areas like the face. The 4D Body applicator is equipped with novel VariPulse technology that is most effective for cellulite reduction and body contouring. The multi-polar RF uses advanced technology to deliver homogeneous energy and heating to multiple, controlled tissue depths which means safe, easy to maintain temperature during treatment and more reliable, consistent results than ever before. This heating action is complemented by Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, (PEMF), which is a non-heated and painless mechanism emitted through electrodes on the applicator.
How Painful are body sculpting and Fat Reduction Treatments?
You can rest assured that your treatment will always feel comfortable and painless because all four Venus Legacy applicators now have integrated sensors to provide your practitioner with real-time thermal feedback and monitoring of the optimal heat levels in tissue. Your skilled treatment specialist uses the machine’s precise feedback guides to bring your tissue to the right, therapeutic heat level for fat destruction and then keep it there for maximum results.

What to Expect for your first body sculpting session /
When you visit us for your first Venus Legacy RF body contouring treatment, we recommend you wear comfortable, washable clothes, because the gel which is used with the applicators on your skin may come into contact with them.
One of the best features of this exciting technology is that there is absolutely no downtime related to Venus Legacy RF treatments. You may complete a session comfortably and quickly on your lunch break or after work in less than 30 minutes and because there are no associated swelling, pain or other adverse effects, you can complete a treatment then return to your daily activities right away. No one will know but your tissue will go on reacting to the treatment in the days and weeks after to remove unwanted fat, increase circulation, rebuild collagen and elastin and restore smooth, toned contours. Most people find the treatment process to be comfortable and relaxing.
How many body sculpting sessions should I do for the best results?
6-8 treatments sessions are recommended per target area, spaced one week apart. Your, unique treatment plan will depend on your goals and your in-person complimentary consultation.
Because time is required for the body’s natural, regenerative and healing processes to work, you will likely be able to see visible results by the third treatment session but some people have reported seeing positive changes after the first treatment too!
