Body Contouring

You only have one body, love the one you’re in.

As we get older, our bodies naturally start to produce less collagen and store more fat, leading to a greater chance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and even cellulite.

At Skin Appeal we offer Body FX and Venus Legacy Treatments. At your consultation your treatment provider will decide which treatment is best for you.

These 2 machines are designed to tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production. It does so with the heat it generates and delivers to the skin and fat layers.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. One of its primary roles is to provide structure to the skin, keeping it tight and firm.

Unfortunately, the body’s collagen production decreases by about 1% per year. This is why it’s natural for the skin to become loose over time. The toll of gravity then exacerbates the effects, pulling the skin down and making it sag.
Body FX and Venus Legacy helps counter those effects by inducing collagen production. It can also boost blood circulation while causing the skin to contract. These actions can then help make the skin look plumper and even thicker.

Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite, also sometimes referred to as orange peel skin, isn’t a medical condition. It’s cosmetic, but it is very common. It happens to the best of us, even healthy slim people.

Keep in mind that cellulite isn’t fat, but it can occur due to fatty tissues. Fats can cause the skin to dimple when they push against tissues known as septa. Septa, in turn, are fibrous bands connecting the skin to muscles.

As more fatty tissues push against the septa, the skin may develop a puckered appearance. That puckering or lumpiness is what you now call cellulite.

Body FX and Venus Legacy can help treat cellulite by breaking down fat cells in the dimpled areas of the skin. From there, it can smoothen out the puckered areas with its skin tightening effects.

Each of our RF machines provide excellent results but one handpiece may work better on your body than the other one. Your treatment provider will make that decision at your consultation. You may even find that both machines may be used at different appointments. This way we can customize your treatment protocol.

Will these treatments work for everyone?

Body FX and Venus Legacy treatments may be the ideal solution for anyone who has pockets of cellulite and/or excess body fat that they can’t seem to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. They can help improve the appearance of skin that is starting to lose elasticity and is showing early signs of sagging and wrinkles. For safety reasons, anyone with the following conditions may not be able to get treatments with Venus Legacy™:

• Active inflammation and/or an infection around the treatment area
• Current or history of cancer
• A degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that’s stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)
• An internal defibrillator or pacemaker
• Metal implants (excluding dental) in or around the treatment area
• Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
• Varicose veins
• Pregnancy or are undergoing IVF procedures
• Skin-related autoimmune diseases

VENUS LEGACY

BODY FX by Inmode

BodyFX is a non-invasive treatment that delivers radio frequency energy, improving blood circulation and dispersing heat to the deep tissue. Negative pressure is used to attach skin to the RF electrodes to create uniform heating over the dermis and subdermal layers. Patients love the results!

BodyFX treatments help improve the appearance of cellulite, reduce dimpled skin and help slow the loss of elasticity on the abdomen, love handles, hips, thighs and other areas that require fat reduction. This device can treat cellulite, tighten skin and make fat reduction all in one! BodyFX addresses problematic fatty tissue in larger body areas with skin tightening benefits.
How does the treatment feel?

Body FX is not painful at all and is even considered to be relaxing for most people who undergo treatment. During your treatment, you will feel a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling sensation as you feel the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out stubborn and unwanted pockets of fat and cellulite.

What areas can be treated?


Body FX can be used to treat many areas of the body including:

• Abdomen
• Inner and outer thighs
• Love handles
• Hips
• Buttocks

Am I A Good Candidate For Body FX?


• Be healthy without medical conditions that impair or delay healing, or any conditions that can increase the risks of non-invasive procedures. • Be at or close to their ideal body weight. • Commit to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper fitness and nutrition. • Have realistic goals and a positive outlook


How Long Do Results Last?

Results are permanent and are maintained with a proper diet and exercise. Body FX does not eliminate the body’s ability to gain fat and/or cellulite, it only destroys the fat and cellulite that is already present due to genetics or lifestyle.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?
You should be able to see results after your first treatment as far as reduction of fat and cellulite, while the skin tightening effects take more time to see. After the first few treatments, your skin’s surface should feel smoother and softer. The final result peaks at around 6 months.

Are Maintenance Treatments Will Be Needed After The Series Of Sessions?
Series of sessions will be needed to see results, typically once a week for 8-10 weeks with upkeep treatments every 3-4 months to maintain results.

What Is The Post-Procedure Care?
There is absolutely no downtime.

About The Treatment
Venus Legacy™ Skin Tightening has been proven medically to help provide positive results on nearly every area of the face and body. As we age, skin laxity becomes a more prominent issue as the collagen and elastin production in our skin is significantly descreased.

The procedures make our clients feel happier and more confident, and we’re sure you’ll feel the same way too!

• Most of our clients are suffering from:
• Cellulite on their body.
• Saggy or loose skin on your abdomen, arms, buttocks, legs or neck.
• Skin laxity after an operation, weight loss, or childbirth.
• You are not currently pregnant or nursing.
• You are not currently on, or plan to be on Accutane.

If this sounds like you, then you are a great candidate for Venus Legacy Skin Tightening. Your future will be firmer, smoother , and exactly how YOU want it to be.

How does Venus Legacy work?

Venus LegacyTM uses patented (MP)² technology with radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields.

This technology stimulates your body’s growth of new collagen causing tighter skin and less fat cells. Your skin is left renewed and younger looking. Since our technology does not stretch the skin, there is no fear of additional laxity.

The radio frequency causes reaction in the body tissues, stimulating the body’s own healing response. Blood circulation in the treated area improves with skin tone and texture enhanced. This rejuvenating activity triggers new collagen and elastic fibers to form, along with an increase in the production of fibroblasts (cells that help create collagen).

What makes Venus Legacy™ unique from other skin tightening treatments is the advanced VariPulse technology. It includes a suction feature that gently pulls the skin, allowing the radio frequencies to deeply penetrate into the skin to further stimulate lymphatic drainage and blood circulation.  Venus Legacy™ results can be very long lasting.

People typically need 8-10 treatments for full results and will often have 1 treatment per quarter after their treatment protocol is completed to keep on top of their results as we do continue to age and this can certainly help.
It is important to know that Venus Legacy™ cannot stop new fat from forming. This is why we recommend you continue being active and eating healthy.

Does the treatment work on darker skin, too?
Absolutely! Venus Legacy™ uses advanced radio frequency technology to safely and comfortably heat the tissue under the skin’s surface. Radio frequency technology has been proven to be safe and effective for all skin tones, even darker complexions.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for a treatment?
Preparing for a Venus Legacy™ treatment is simple. Cleanse the skin before your appointment. Do not apply lotions, creams, or makeup to the area being treated prior to the treatment session. Finally, remember to remove all jewelry around the treatment area.

How long does the treatment take?
A single session typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes, meaning it’s quick enough to schedule treatments during a lunch break!

What does the treatment feel like? Will it be painful?
During the treatment, the applicator will slowly get warmer until your skin reaches the needed temperature and stays within that temperature range. If it feels too hot, just let the operator know and they can lower the temperature. If the technician is using the VariPulse™ feature, it will feel like a gentle suction on your skin, like a very low-power vacuum. This can also be lowered if needed—there are four different levels of VariPulse™. Overall, the treatments are comfortable, as the level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted to suit each individual.

How many sessions will I need and how often?
Most patients receive six to eight treatments per area. Treatments are usually scheduled a week apart. For a more specific treatment plan based on your individual needs and expectations, consult a certified treatment provider.

How will I feel after my treatment?
Most patients feel relaxed after a Venus Legacy™ session. In fact, the treatment is so comfortable that some patients have even fallen asleep! The treated area may feel warm to the touch post-treatment, but this sensation will subside.

Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime at all. The treatment area may appear a little flushed and feel warm to the touch immediately afterward, but these sensations will disappear within one to two hours post-treatment.

Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
Absolutely nothing! In fact, feel free to apply makeup or lotion immediately after the treatment. You can go back to your regular routine right away.

How long will the results last? Are they permanent?
Venus Legacy™ treatments are cumulative, meaning that you will see improved results with each additional treatment. After the final session in your treatment plan, the results will continue to improve for up to three to four months. Of course, everyone’s skin and body will continue to age as usual, so maintenance is recommended. Your treatment provider will be able to suggest the best plan for maintenance.
