Say Goodbye to Saddlebags with Nonsurgical Laser Treatments

So Long Saddlebags!

Today’s devices procedures tighten, smooth…and relieve

You almost hate to admit it; it sounds so superficial. After all, you work hard to keep your body in shape, why should a little cellulite keep you from feeling healthy?

So let’s call today’s blog “From the files of ‘I know I shouldn’t complain, but…’”

It’s natural to be frustrated by trouble spots. Women in particular struggle with it: the uncontrollable wrinkles or the way gravity pulls the skin under our triceps in spite of how many miles we’ve run, or tennis matches that we’ve played.

At The Centre, P.C., we work with our clients every day to help them see improvement in these areas—not because it makes them more beautiful, but because it shakes that unnecessary anxiety by its tail.

Our “Centre Yourself” Medical Rejuvenation Spa has several non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures that tighten skin, shrink fat cells and reduce cellulite and can work on the entire body. One device, the Venus Legacy, provides painless body contouring with visible, dramatic results with absolutely no downtime.

The gist of how it works without getting too technical (though if you want to get technical, click here), the Venus Legacy—and its sister device, the Venus Freeze—is a non-invasive radio-frequency device that uses pulsed magnetic fields to consistently and uniformly heat the skin from the inside out. Your body’s collagen heats up and tightens, reducing skin dimpling and wrinkles.

Our clients often compare it to a hot stone massage. It’s quick—one procedure a week, lasting anywhere between 15 minutes and an hour depending on the body part. Venus Legacy treatments succeed at tightening the skin in the face and neck. Body treatments show reduced cellulite and a more contoured figure.

“The Venus is a modality, not a one-time procedure. Body contouring gets deep to create a situation where the encapsulated fat can dissolve. So naturally, the best results are seen after 8, maybe 10 sessions,” says The Docs of “Centre Yourself” Medical Rejuvenation Spa. “If the treatments are coupled with nutrition, exercise, and an attitude of wellness our clients have amazing results.”

Your Venus Legacy specialist will take before-and-after photos in order to track your progress, it’s dramatic and it’s out there waiting for you. (To see a gallery of before-and-after images, click here.)

In future blogs, we’ll showcase other “Centre Yourself” Medical Rejuvenation Spa laser treatments and how they change our customers’ lives. In the meantime, to learn more about the best plastic surgery options for you call (574) 296-9100 or (574) 968-9100 to set up a consultation.
