Aesthetic Awards 2019 – Venus Legacy - Winner of the Top Body Shaping Devices
The ultimate non-surgical body-shaping solution
Venus Legacy™ is an exciting and revolutionary new technology from Venus Concept, a leader in providing the medical aesthetics treatments for the face, neck and body.
With over 3 million Venus treatments performed every year worldwide, they have earned an international reputation for the effectiveness and safety of their procedures.
And Venus Legacy™ is their ultimate treatment.
It is the first all-in-one medical, non- surgical aesthetic treatment using patented Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, VariPulse Technology™ and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (MP)2 . This deeply penetrates the surface of the skin increasing collagen synthesis.
It is virtually pain-free, gives immediate and long-term results, and uses a non-invasive technology that is safe for all skin tones.
It has also been authorized by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration), for facial wrinkles, rhytides (creases or folds) and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Reshaping and tightening without surgery or downtime
As we get older, our bodies start to produce less collagen and store more fat. Eventually, this leads to wrinkles, sagging, cellulite and other signs of ageing.
Venus Legacy™ uses heat to naturally boost collagen production and break down fat cells. This helps to tighten sagging skin, smooth out cellulite, and make your body appear slimmer and more toned.
It also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin.
How Venus Legacy™ treatment works
The Venus Legacy™ procedure uses the revolutionary VariPulse™ technology.
This combines multi-polar radiofrequency (RF) and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) to produce uniform heat under the skin’s surface.
The heat energy is delivered by different applicators, specially designed for different areas of the body.
Face and neck applicators
The Lift™ applicator increases circulation and reduces fluid under the eyes. It also contours smaller areas such as the neck, arms and bra bulge.
The DiamondPolar™ applicator has a unique electrode placement.
This feature allows for treatment in hard-to-reach areas, such as around the eyes and along the jowls, smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
The Sculpt™ applicators use (MP)² technology and VariPulse™ suction to create a deep matrix of heat, targeting multiple tissue depths for body contouring and temporary cellulite reduction.
The Sculpt™ and OctiPolar™ applicators’ larger spot size allows faster treatments, even heat distribution and increased therapeutic temperatures for superior clinical results.
What really sets Venus Legacy™ apart is the advanced VariPulse™ technology.
This is an adjustable pulsed suction feature that gently pulls the skin upward, allowing the radiofrequency energy to travel even deeper into the skin.
This stimulates healthy circulation as well as better cellulite reduction and body contouring.
The radiofrequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This works to increase collagen and elastin fibres, which results in tighter, smoother skin.
This process also works to break down the volume of fat cells in the treatment area, which helps to give the body a slimmer, more contoured shape.
The treatments are virtually pain less and you can return to your daily schedule immediately afterward.

Frequently Asked Questions
Before the Treatment:
Am I a good candidate for this treatment? /Will this treatment work for me?
- The best candidate is someone who has pockets of cellulite and/or excess body fat at that they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise alone, and who doesn’t want surgery. An ideal candidate is also someone who is starting to lose elasticity in their skin and is showing early signs of sagging and wrinkles.
For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:
- Active inflammation and/or infection in the treatment area
- Current or history of cancer
- A degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that is stimulated by heat
- An internal defibrillator/pacemaker
- Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area
- Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
- Varicose veins
- Pregnant or are undergoing any IVF procedure
- Skin-related autoimmune diseases
- Silicone implants and/or injections in the area
I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
Yes. Venus Legacy uses technology that is safe for all skin tones, even darker ones.
Can I do it during my lunch break?
Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient.
How many sessions will I need to see results?
Most patients receive 6 – 8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
How often/far apart should the treatments be?
Treatments are done once a week.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
Just make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your treatment. Remove all jewellery around the area being treated.
During the Treatment:
How long does a treatment session last?
Each session lasts from 30 to 75 minutes.
What does the treatment feel like?
The applicator will slowly get warmer till your skin reaches the needed temperature and stays within that temperature range. But if you do feel it is too hot, just let the operator know and they can easily lower the temperature a bit. If the technician is using the Vari Pulse feature, you will also feel a gently suction on your skin, like a very low-power vacuum, as the applicator moves around the area. This can also be lowered if needed.
Will it be painful?
Venus Legacy treatments are comfortable. The level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted to suit you.
After the Treatment:
How will I feel after my treatment?
You will likely feel relaxed, comfortable and some patients have even fallen asleep. The area may feel warm to the touch, but other than that, you will feel perfectly normal.
How long will the results last and are they permanent?
The treatments are cumulative. After your final treatment your results will continue to improve for up to 3 – 4 months. After that, your face and body continue to age, so maintenance is recommended once a month or every 3 – 4 months.
Is there really no downtime?
Absolutely no downtime. The treatment area may look a little flushed and warm to the touch, but this will go away within 1 – 2 hours.
Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
No, you do not need to do anything after your treatment.
Can I put on makeup or lotion right after a treatment on my face?
Yes, you can apply makeup and/or immediately after your treatment
