Many of the concerns for which men and women seek treatment have to do with the natural decline of collagen and elastin that occurs with age. Healthy lifestyle habits are believed to support collagen production throughout life, but with so many other factors in play – UV exposure, genetics – there comes the point at which the skin is going to lose its resiliency and firmness. As a result, we see lines and wrinkles and an overall “fall” of facial tissue. There are a few ways that facial aging can be treated. Here, we want to discuss how Venus Legacy™ works.
In recent years, several radiofrequency devices have been developed and widely used in the clinical setting. In our Austin office alone, we meet patients’ needs through the use of a few different platforms designed for skin tightening and rejuvenation. The Venus Legacy platform, formally Venus Freeze, differs from other devices in that it incorporates electromagnetic pulse therapy with radiofrequency to maximize the effect on aging dermal tissue. In the context of Venus Legacy, magnetic pulse therapy is referred to as MP2 .
Radiofrequency and electromagnetic pulse energy work in two different ways, which creates a sort of synergy beneath the skin. Where radiofrequency is a common technology used to induce an influx of new collagen into the uppermost dermal tissues, electromagnetic pulses excite dermal fibroblasts to reproduce. As a result of impactful magnetic pulses, these cells release growth factors that synthesize with collagen to repair and regenerate the skin. Together, these two technologies trigger a strong self-repair mechanism that ultimately results in smoother, tighter skin.
In addition to a powerful combination of energy, the Venus Legacy platform also features automatic cooling for a comfortable experience and VariPulse™ technology that facilitates the absorption of thermal energy into deeper tissues.
Venus Legacy is an excellent solution for men and women who want to restore suppleness and firmness to the skin on their face, neck, and body. In addition to skin-tightening and wrinkle-reduction, this platform also has settings that target fat and cellulite.
