How Does Body Contouring Work?
While there’s no such thing as a “magic bullet” when it comes to weight loss, some procedures are better than others for slimming down and getting rid of those problem areas. You may have heard about a procedure called body contouring, but how does body contouring work, exactly? Body contouring has taken the aesthetics world by storm, gaining popularity as it is safe, effective, and minimally invasive. We’ll take a peek into this booming non-invasive procedure and whether or not it’s the right decision for you.
Body contouring, also called body sculpting, involves different types of treatments, including both surgical and non-surgical. For the purposes of this article, we’ll be discussing the Venus Legacy™ method, a non-surgical method. This proven method uses heat to naturally boost collagen production and minimize fat cells, allowing for the smoothing of stubborn cellulite and problem areas.
How does Venus Legacy treatment work?
Venus Legacy is common for two specific body contouring desires: tightening sagging skin and for minimizing cellulite. Venus Legacy uses innovative technology that creates a thermal reaction in the tissue that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This results in a reduction of cellulite and tightening of the skin, allowing the treated area to look smoother and firmer.
Benefits of Body Contouring
In addition to being a minimally invasive procedure to achieve firmer skin, which oftentimes requires a much more invasive surgical procedure to achieve similar results, body contouring also boasts no recovery time, short sessions, and the ability for all skin types to be treated.
Does body contouring hurt?
Overall, the procedure should not hurt. The Venus Legacy uses an applicator that increases in heat until your skin reaches the necessary temperature to achieve desires results and can continue to maintain that temperature. If you start feeling as if the temperature is too hot, be sure to let your doctor or nurse know and they should be able to lower it. If the innovative VariPulse feature is being used, you may also feel a light suction or pressure on your skin, as the applicator moves over the area. If that feature becomes painful, it can also be adjusted.
How long to do the results last?
Body contouring lasts around 3-4 months, at which time your body will commence with its natural aging processes, causing sagging and cellulite. Maintenance is recommended every 3-4 months for body contouring.
