Body Contouring Q & A

Who can benefit from body contouring?

Anyone with an interest in improving their appearance can benefit from body contouring. Regardless of age, sex, weight, daily activity, habits or ethnicity, a variety of treatments including Venus Legacy, Venus Freeze, and Bella Contour can be used for body contouring. This also includes overweight people, physically active people that have small areas to sculpt and contour, and females directly after pregnancy. This contouring effect that these systems offer works on all body parts other than the neck, chin, and face.

What happens during body contouring treatment with Venus Legacy, Venus Freeze, and Bella Contour?

The Venus Legacy™ treatment plan includes a series of weekly sessions. Six sessions are usually required for the face and at least eight sessions for the neck. Other body parts usually require at least 10. A session typically lasts between 20 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients can return to their daily activities as soon as the treatment has finished since it requires no downtime.

The Venus Freeze treatment is often compared to spa treatments like a hot stone massage. Clients rest comfortably on a treatment bed and a clinician first applies a gel to smooth the applicators glide over the skin, then selects the best size applicator for the body part being treated. Clients are able to just close their eyes and relax throughout the treatment which lasts from 15 to 40 minutes.

During a Bella Contour treatment, a handheld wand is moved across the targeted area. The treatment starts with ultrasound and interferential therapies to prepare the fat for removal, and then vacuum therapy removes the fat. Many patients compare the sensations during treatment to a warm massage. The treatment lasts roughly 50 minutes – the ultrasound and interferential therapies last 40 minutes and the vacuum therapy lasts 10 minutes.

What happens to the fat that is released from the cells during the treatment?

The lipids that are released from the fat cells will enter the bloodstream and are then transported through the lymphatic system into the liver, where they will become available for the body to use as energy. The lipids released during a body contouring treatment is available for the body to use for the 48 hours following a treatment session. After a complete program of body contouring treatments, the cellulite may reappear but it will take years for the body to accumulate it again.
