What is Cellulite?
Have you ever wondered why cellulite has a distinct, dimpled appearance? Once you understand this, you will also recognize how difficult it is to reduce cellulite on your own.
Cellulite is more than just fat. It is actually a combination of weak connective tissue and fat that protrudes through these tissues. Under normal circumstances, the connective tissue is strong enough to hold the fat in place. Aging, hormonal changes, genetics, and a variety of other factors cause the connective tissue to either break down or separate. As this happens, the fat gradually pokes through the openings in the connective tissue.
Cellulite removal must address the issue with the fat and the connective tissue.

How Does Cellulite Treatment Help?
Cellulite cannot be reduced with liposuction because the procedure is not intended to improve the connective tissues. Our Venus Legacy™ system uses a combination of massage and radiofrequency energy for non-surgical cellulite reduction. This strengthens the connective tissues and reduces fat volume.
What Should I Expect During My Cellulite Treatment?
During your cellulite removal treatment, a handpiece is placed on the treatment area and slowly drawn across the skin. You may experience a combination of deep tissue warming and cooling on the surface of your skin.
What Should I Expect After My Cellulite Treatment?
Most women require eight to 10 treatments for optimum cellulite removal, but this varies. You may need fewer or more.
