As we age, our bodies store more fat and produce less collagen than when we were younger. This leads to common issues such as cellulite, wrinkles, and sagging skin. In order to work against these natural signs of aging, many people turn to laser treatments. If you are curious about Venus Legacy laser treatment, Atlantis Clinic has all the information you need to know if this is the right laser treatment for you.
Is Venus Legacy Laser A Universal Treatment?
If you have changed your diet and dedicated time to working out on a regular basis but still find that there are stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t dissolve, or if you have areas on your body that contain cellulite, then laser treatment may be a good option for you. When your skin starts showing signs of losing its elasticity or when wrinkles begin to form, it’s a perfect time to apply a Venus Legacy laser treatment to help maintain your youthful appearance. While most patients are able to undergo treatment without issues, those who suffer from certain conditions may be ineligible for treatment.
Conditions That Limit Treatment:
- Infection on or near the treated area
- Cancer or history of cancer
- Current pregnancy or IVF treatment
- Inflammation on or near the treated area
- Neurologic diseases on or around treated area that become stimulated from heat
- Varicose veins

Is Venus Legacy Effective On All Skin Tones?
The Venus Legacy operates on a radio frequency that heats the tissue located under the surface of the skin. This type of frequency has been proven safe for all skin tones.
How Do I Prepare For Treatment
Getting ready for your Legacy laser treatment is very easy. Make sure that to clean the treatment area prior to your appointment, avoid using creams, lotions, or any other products before your session. Ensure that your treated area is free of jewelry and also wear loose cotton clothing to reduce irritation following the procedure. Each session lasts between 15 and 30 minutes which makes them perfect for the middle of the day sessions.
Is Laser Treatment Painful?
In general, Venus Legacy laser treatments are not painful, but since there is an increased amount of temperature than you may be used to, some people may feel a slight amount of discomfort during the treatment only. Each session is tailored to the individual, so if you feel more heat that you are comfortable with, simply let the operator know so they can adjust the heat and suction level. A full course of treatment usually takes 6-8 treatments spaced out in weekly increments, though each person and treatment area is different. Your specific course of treatment may be shorter or longer.
How Will I Feel Afterwards?
Following your laser treatment, the area that was exposed to the laser may feel warm to the touch for a short while. This sensation usually fades within 24 hours. Laser treatment is not invasive so you won’t have to deal with downtime or recovery time at all. You can return to your regular life immediately following your treatment session.
How Long Will My Laser Results Last?
Each time you come in for a session, your results will improve. After your last treatment, you can expect your results to improve for another 4-5 months. The body never stops aging so your treatment provider will set out a plan to help you maintain your results over time.
