READING, Penn., April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Both cellulite and loose or sagging skin are common complaints for many women. Over time, the skin naturally becomes less elastic, which can lead to drooping and sagging. Traditionally, lifting surgeries were necessary to improve the appearance of lax skin.
Cellulite can occur at any age and on any body type, and is caused by underlying fat deposits that give the skin a dimpled or lumpy appearance. It is especially noticeable on the thighs and buttocks, and can cause some women to experience embarrassment or discomfort with their bodies. Cellulite is notoriously difficult to treat, despite the influx of creams, at-home treatments, and special exercises.
Now, there is a new treatment designed to tighten the skin, address cellulite and reduce volume on the face, neck and body! Venus Legacy™ is a non-invasive device that uses multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields to create a therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. It creates a thermal reaction under the tissue that stimulates the body's natural healing response, increasing blood circulation and causing the skin to contract. This results in a reduction of cellulite, noticeable tightening of the skin, and even a decrease in localized fat deposits. The treated area will immediately look smoother and firmer.
"We are very pleased to offer Venus Legacy to our patients," states board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Reedy. "We are constantly seeking out the newest developments in cosmetic technology, and this is a particularly exciting new option, given how many patients ask us for help with cellulite reduction."
Berks Plastic Surgery is one of the first medical practices in the greater Reading, Pennsylvania area to offer Venus Legacy. Patients report that the treatment is a relaxing and comfortable experience. There is no downtime associated with Venus Legacy, and patients can get back to work and daily activities immediately.
Venus Legacy is also FDA-approved to treat some visible signs of aging, including facial wrinkles. It has been found to tighten skin and increase blood circulation to create a more youthful appearance in the face and neck.
"I have seen patients experience excellent results with Venus Legacy treatments," Dr. Reedy continues. "It is an effective cellulite and skin tightening technique that I anticipate will grow in popularity in the coming months and years."
