The Venus Legacy

April 12, 2019

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity. Thanks to the Venus Legacy treatment, you can improve cellulite, tighten your skin, and reduce small areas.

First, about Venus Legacy

Firstly, Venus Legacy is a device that’s designed to reduce cellulite, tighten skin, treat wrinkles, and reduce small spots of excess fat.

With the help of (MP)2 technology, Venus Legacy uses Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PEMF) along with Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) to produce a uniform heat matrix. This, in turn, encourages contraction, collagen production, improved elasticity, and lipolysis. As a result, you can look forward to a firmer, smoother, and more toned body.

How Venus Legacy differs from other contouring treatments

Venus Legacy is a highly advanced technology used for body contouring. The skin tightening and cellulite reducing treatment delivers pain-free, completely safe treatments with exceptional results.

Not only does the treatment involve RF and PEMF, but it also utilizes VariPulse technology, RealTime Thermal feedback, and 4D technology for superior contouring and tightening effects.

How does the treatment work?

Using a combination of the technologies we’ve mentioned, Venus Legacy works to deeply penetrate several layers of the skin, uniformly heating from the inside out. When your tissue temperature is increased, it enhances FGF-2 hormone activity and the triglycerides within your fat cells are broken down while fatty acids are freed from the cells.

In so doing, we can reduce volume. Blood flow to your treated area improves significantly, enhancing your skin’s texture and tone. Oxygen, minerals, and vitamins are carried easier t the cells, while waste materials and toxins are eliminated.

Venus Legacy also provides exceptional skin tightening results. That’s because, during treatment, new blood vessels are formed while dermal fibroblasts are created. These increase elastin and collagen fibers, resulting in firmer, tighter skin and filling in of lines and wrinkles for a smoother, youthful appearance.

What to expect during your treatment

Venus Legacy treatments tend to be relaxing, with some people saying it feels similar to a hot stone massage. The treatment takes around 40 minutes, and for best results, we usually recommend 6 to 10 treatments.

This is a virtually painless treatment with no downtime needed. That means you can quickly achieve cellulite reduction and skin tightening results and get straight back to the hustle and bustle of life.

The RF causes a thermal response in tissues, activating your body’s natural response to healing. So, new elastin fibers and collagen are formed, causing your skin to both look and feel firmer.

When your skin’s temperature rises, your body releases stress hormones. The hormones pass through your bloodstream and attach to receptors on the membrane of fat cells within the deepest layer of your skin. Once the stress hormone attaches to the receptor, it activates lipase. In turn, lipase breaks down triglycerides into free fatty acids. These acids exit the fat cells through your bloodstream, reducing fat cells as they do so. The result is a more contoured and smoother shape.

Areas that can be treated

Venus Legacy is designed with four different handpieces to treat different areas of the body. Treatments can work to reduce cellulite and tighten the skin on your face, neck, upper arms, buttock, abdomen, and thighs.

The number of treatments you’ll need is based on the area being treated. For example, most areas of the body require 8 treatments while the neck and face require about 6 treatments.

A safe treatment for all

Venus Legacy is a safe and effective treatment for skin tightening and to reduce wrinkles and fat. It’s also a successful treatment for most people.

If you’ve been noticing dimpling on your behind, you’re not alone. Up to 90 percent of women experience cellulite at some point in their lives.

What is it, really? Cellulite is the fat cells we find just under the top layer of skin. These fat cells squeeze between bands of collagen, attaching muscles to the skin.

Dermatologists suggest that poor circulation – which is mostly genetic – can make those lumps and bumps look worse. That’s because when your blood flow slows down, the collagen separates, and that means the fat comes up to the surface of the skin. That’s when you get the orange-peel effect.

It’s certainly a confidence bummer.

The good news is that there are several specific exercises that target those lumps. So, if you’re ready to kick cellulite to the curb, here are the moves you need to start doing today.

The high back kick

If you’re tired of covering up your thighs and buttocks with baggy trousers just to try and hide the appearance of cellulite, this is the strength and toning exercise for you. It’s really good for boosting circulation to the lower part of the body, and it’s great for relaxing your lower back.

Here’s what to do:

  • Position yourself all fours, supporting yourself with your knees and forearms
  • Keep your elbows right below your shoulders and your back straight
  • Lift one leg towards the ceiling, slightly bending the knee
  • Lower the leg and repeat 15 times with each leg

High knees

This is another great move for improving blood flow, and it’s low-impact, too.

Stand with your chest tall and feet slightly apart. Alternating legs, bring your knees up to chest height, flexing the working glute at the top of this movement. Try to bring your leg up as high as you can and hold for a second before alternating legs.

Aim to do 3 sets for a total of 2 minutes each.

Lateral goblet lunge

Stand tall with your feet together, pointing forward, and grip a dumbbell by one end, vertically. Keep your hands at chest height with your elbows bent by your sides.

Keep your left leg straight and step the right leg as far to the right as possible, bending the knee and lowering your hips as deeply as you safely can. Push off your right foot to return to the starting position. Do 20 on the right leg and then 20 on the left to tone your glutes and thighs and bust that cellulite. Aim to do 2 sets on each side.

Classic lunges

Start by standing tall with your feet hip-distance apart. Take a big step forward or backward, lowering your body, bending both knees as you do. Aim to keep the knees at 90 degrees when bent and your front knee aligned over your front ankle.

Step your feet back together and repeat. You can do all the sets of one leg and then the other, or alternate legs for a walking lunge. Aim for 3 sets of 15 on each side with these classic lunges.

The bridge

This is an effective exercise for your glutes and abductors. It works well to firm up the muscles and reduce cellulite in your thighs and buttocks.

Do this:

  • Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor, a little less than hip-distance apart, and knees bent. Keep your hands flat next to you.
  • Tighten your buttocks as much as you can, keep your abs engaged and tight, and lift your pelvis upwards.
  • Hold the position for around 3 or 4 seconds and lower back to the floor.
  • Aim for 3 sets of 15 with the bridge.

Goblet plie squat

Stand with your feet wider than hip-distance apart and your toes turned out, like a sumo wrestler. Hold a heavy dumbbell vertically by one end using both hands. Keep your hands at chest height with your elbows bent by your sides.

Squat down, pushing your knees out to the sides and then return to the starting position. Aim for 2 sets of 20 to really target the thighs and buttocks and tighten up those muscles.

Cellulite beyond exercise

December 9, 2018

Leg

If exercise isn’t enough, try other cellulite-busting solutions

 

The skin is made up of multi-layered tissue with connective cords that act similar to a net to keep your muscles, fat, and skin tethered together. When that fat pushes against the connective tissue, you get cellulite.

Cellulite is very common, most often found on the arms, lower stomach, breasts, and thighs. While many people associate cellulite with being overweight, even thin people and those who work out all the time can suffer from dimpling due to cellulite.

Is Exercise Really a Cure for Cellulite?

Believe it or not, not all types of exercise can help with cellulite. In fact, if you work out and still have cellulite, you may need to look at the types of exercises you are doing.

The American Council on Exercise says that people with cellulite ought to perform cardio activities most days of the week coupled with two to three days of resistance-training workouts. So, if you currently only do cardio, you might want to add strength training to your cellulite-busting regime.

The muscles lie underneath the skin. When you replace fat with muscle, you help your body to look more toned and reduce cellulite. Squats, lunges, bicep curls, and abdominal crunches are the types of spot-reduction exercises you can try.

But what if exercise isn’t working for you in your effort to deal with cellulite?

There are other options.

Smoothing the Bumps

Fortunately, there are ways to deal with those the unwanted appearance of dimpling skin, both naturally and with medical treatments.

There are a number of actions you can start doing right now to minimize or eliminate cellulite, such as:

  • Warm water and lemon – drink a glass of warm water with lemon as soon as you wake up to balance your body’s pH, hydrate the lymphatic system, and detoxify. On that note, proper hydration is important to keeping tissues and the lymphatic system clean, so make sure you’re drinking enough water throughout the day.
  • Quit smoking – every puff you take affects the blood supply to the skin, making it thinner and more likely to sag. This makes cellulite more visible, especially in the arms, buttocks, and thighs.
  • Dry brush – dry body brushing improves circulation and lymphatic drainage, reducing cellulite.
  • Get a massage – treat yourself to a vacuum cup and give yourself a massage. This method can be a little sore at first, but it can help to reduce cellulite.
  • Cut the salt – sodium leads to you retaining excess water and making your skin look even more dimply and lumpy.
