Sagging skin and cellulite are two key challenges in the quest for body perfection. While both are natural phenomena, they can be effectively reduced with the application of various technologies – most prominently, Radiofrequency (RF) and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF). To see how they work, let’s begin with a quick understanding of cellulite and skin sag.
Youthful skin is rich in collagen. Collagen provides the support structure, rendering elasticity, suppleness and smoothness. With time, the body’s ability to produce collagen reduces, and skin tends to sag as it loses its inherent resilience.
Cellulite is subcutaneous fat (normal fat beneath the skin), which starts pushing against fibrous connective tissue as it builds up for various reasons. This pressure causes the skin above to pucker and develop a bumpy, dimpled appearance, also dubbed ‘orange peel skin’. Apart from compromising skin texture and appearance, cellulite adds to circumference and hides muscle contour. That’s why fat loss is an integral part of any body contouring regimen, even though an individual may have a perfectly normal BMI (body mass index).
There’s a catch with weight or fat loss. It can leave behind loose skin flaps and folds which apart from being unsightly, add inches to the area, and do no justice to the newly forming contours.
After evaluating various technology platforms and devices, our dermatologists at Red Lotus have selected Venus Legacy as their ideal choice for efficacy and safety. It uses patented technology to boost collagen production and break down fat cells which store fat in undesirable areas. The restored collagen production tightens sagging skin. The fat reduction smoothens out the cellulite. And together they lift the skin and make it look more toned.
Venus Legacy helps deliver a non-surgical treatment. It is useful for post-pregnancy or post bariatric surgery tummy and abdomen tightening, buttock lifts, contouring stubborn fat pockets to reduce upper arm bulge, and circumference reduction on the legs. In fact, it is a technology of choice for body contouring, cellulite reduction, stretch mark improvement, jawline contouring and double chin reduction as well as skin tightening for the entire body.
