Get your beach body ready with non-invasive cellulite removal

Beach weather has arrived, and if you’re like most of us, you may be dealing with cellulite. Between 80% and 90% of all women who have gone through puberty have cellulite, making it one of the most common aesthetic concerns in Canada. 

We’re all familiar with the look of the dimples it causes but what exactly is cellulite?

When fat pockets, called adipocytes, form under connective tissue at uneven sizes it causes cellulite. This can present as dimples and lumps, also known as the “orange peel effect.”

 

Because the fat cells under the skin are different sizes, the connective tissue is distorted. 

This means that the presence of cellulite can continue to cause further issues, affecting proper collagen production and elastin growth. These problems can feed off each other as skin loses elasticity as you age.

 

While men can also get cellulite, it is more common in women. There are many unavoidable things that can cause this condition: hormones, age, genetics, stress, and dietary habits are only a few.

 

The most common body areas for cellulite are the thighs, buttocks, arms, and flanks. 

 

Cellulite Removal

What can you do about this near-universal issue that women struggle with? At Body Med Sculpt, we’re here to set your mind at ease. Cellulite reduction is possible, even if you’ve been dealing with the problem for years. There are many different potential cellulite treatments which differ considerably in the level of invasiveness. On the more invasive side, there are options like liposuction. This often includes the requirement to take time off work or put your busy schedule on hold while recovering from the procedure. Risks involved with invasive cellulite removal procedures like liposuction include:
  • Chronic pain
  • Weight gain
  • Infections
  • Skin deformities
  • Embolism
Because of all these risks, as well as the large price tag these procedures come with, many women opt for non-surgical cellulite reduction procedures instead. Body Med Sculpt is an experienced provider of safe, non-invasive cellulite treatments to help you reduce the appearance of cellulite and feel good about how you look in your bathing suit. The first step in cellulite reduction is assessing just how much you have.

Venus Legacy Treatments

At BodyMedSculpt, we can help you through Venus Legacy cellulite removal treatments.

Venus Legacy uses radio frequencies to stimulate a healing response in the body. This triggers your body to produce more collagen and elastin fibers, the building blocks of healthy skin. These fibers tighten and smooth out the skin. Venus Legacy can also help break down fat cells, slimming the treatment areas.

This advanced technology may also be applied anywhere on the body, including targeting the double-chin.

Additionally, the Venus Legacy can also be used to contour the body by reducing fat and cellulite in targeted areas. 

During treatment, your practitioner applies a handheld device to the treatment area that transmits radio frequency deep into the skin. Treatment lasts between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being targeted.

 

Most patients require 6 to 8 treatments in a specific area to see full cellulite reduction results. Treatments can typically be performed once a week, however, we recommend consulting with your practitioner to discuss the right schedule to meet your specific needs.

 

These treatments are not painful. If you experience any discomfort, your practitioner can adjust the heat according to your comfort zone during the procedure.

There is no downtime after cellulite treatments, although the area may look red or flushed for the first few hours. Most patients can resume regular physical activity right away. However, always check with your practitioner. Every patient is unique, and you may receive specific aftercare instructions, which you should follow closely.

 

The Venus Legacy is a highly advanced, non invasive device that shows consistent results. It can address many different issues including cellulite reduction, skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.

These types of procedures continue to grow in popularity. More than 9 million procedures were performed in 2018 and demand is expected to increase by 30% by 2023.

This service is comfortable and no serious side-effects have ever been reported. 

Is Venus Legacy right for you?

Wondering if you’re a good candidate for this cellulite treatment? Venus Legacy can be used on a variety of skin tones, ranging from fair to dark complexions. As long as you are not severely overweight, and have mild to moderate skin laxity and sun damage, this treatment is for you.
