You exercise and watch what you eat because you want to look and feel your best. What do you do when you’re burning fat at the gym but not around your hips? And what if none of your efforts are improving the appearance of cellulite? The Lumenis Legend Pro™ at Blush Aesthetics is what people all around the Toledo area are using to sculpt the body of their dreams.
The fact is, most women (and many men!) are genetically predisposed to carry more fat and to have cellulite. Cellulite happens when fat deposits push through the connective tissue under your skin and gives it that orange-peel, bumpy appearance. This can happen anywhere on the body, but it happens most on the butt and thighs. It can be SO discouraging when you’re busting your butt at the gym, yet that butt still appears dimpled! Pair that with stubborn fat on your tummy and you may start to wonder if it’s worth it to keep up your routine.
Don’t get discouraged! Your body may want to store fat, but you can fight back with our help. We recommend targeting the source of the problem with the Lumenis Legend Pro™. This advanced tool provides immediate and long-lasting results. We can tailor the noninvasive body sculpting platform to your unique needs and reveal the trim figure you’ve been working so hard on!
Read on to learn more about body sculpting from Toledo’s aesthetic experts.
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting is, quite simply, reducing the appearance of fat on targeted areas of the body. Believe it or not, you can’t actually target fat loss through diet and exercise—your body has its own ideas about where it wants to store fat. Body sculpting provides a way for people at or near their goal weight to target problem areas and reveal a tighter, smoother silhouette.
Liposuction has been a staple body sculpting technique since the 1980s, but it’s an invasive surgery and not ideal for everyone. Luckily, there are now several non-surgical, minimally invasive body sculpting options available. These methods have expanded who is a candidate for body sculpting.
Note: Body sculpting is NOT a weight loss procedure! The goal is to contour your body, not to increase your weight loss. That’s why we always recommend body sculpting as an adjunct to a healthy lifestyle so you can reach and maintain the body of your dreams ✨
Customized body sculpting designed for you
When you choose Blush Aesthetics for body sculpting in Toledo, you’re getting a lot more than a treatment. The first thing we do is sit down to discuss exactly what you want out of your experience. At Blush, our priority is making sure our patients have the best experience and outcome. We are here to listen to all of your concerns and to provide solutions you’ll feel good about.
That’s why we love the Lumenis Legend Pro™; there isn’t a body sculpting product on the market that can deliver individualized results like it. The Legend Pro™ isn’t an invasive procedure, so there is minimal pain and downtime. You can have your appointment and get right back to your normal schedule!
What can the Lumenis Legend Pro™ do?
The beauty of this body sculpting tool is its versatility. It delivers rejuvenated skin and subtle yet impactful sculpting to reveal a tighter, more youthful body. The Legend Pro™ is also one of the most flexible treatments on the market in terms of where on the body it can be used. It can cover large areas of the body for more results in less time. It’s also able to be focused on small, sensitive, and hard-to-reach areas of your body.
With a trio of technologies combined into one, treatments from the Legend Pro™ are completely customizable to provide you the best results. TriPollar, TriLipo, and TriFractional technologies are all proven safe and effective for body contouring—Legend Pro™ uses all three radiofrequency methods for body sculpting.
When compared to other noninvasive methods for body sculpting, the Legend Pro™ provides results immediately. For example, you would need several sessions of CoolSculpting to see the type of tightening and rejuvenation that the Legend Pro™ provides in just one treatment.
Here are the benefits of radiofrequency-based body sculpting:
- Minimal to no pain and downtime
- Limited to no bruising on treatment area
- Promotes fat reduction and skin tightening in one procedure
- Reduces appearance of cellulite
- Immediate and long-lasting results
A note about body sculpting and cellulite
The world is full of misinformation about cellulite. First off, about 90% of women and 10% of men have cellulite. Cellulite is not caused by toxins and it doesn’t actually relate to your weight. As we already mentioned, cellulite is caused by fat deposits that push through the connective tissues and create a dimpled appearance. Being overweight can increase the appearance of your cellulite, but it does not cause cellulite.
Because the source of cellulite lies beneath the surface, CREAMS WON’T HELP! There have been ZERO prescription or over-the-counter topical creams that actually treat cellulite. Products containing retinoids can temporarily lessen the appearance of cellulite, but that’s it.
The BEST way of effectively lessening your cellulite is through a treatment like body sculpting with the Legend Pro™. This technology penetrates the layers of your skin and stimulates collagen production, strengthening the layer between those fat deposits and your skin to give you a smoother look. Other body sculpting methods don’t stimulate collagen production the way the Legend Pro™ does, so this treatment is ideal for those who want to smooth cellulite while trimming fat.
How does the Legend Pro™ compare to other types of body sculpting?
As we mentioned above, the Legend Pro™ uses radiofrequency technology to achieve results. Other types of body sculpting use extreme cold, extreme heat, or ultrasounds. There is also the surgical option of liposuction.
These methods produce results through removing or shrinking fat cells. There is NO natural way to actually lessen the amount of fat cells you have. They shrink or grow, but do not multiply or die on their own. That’s why body contouring pairs so beautifully with a healthy lifestyle!
Radiofrequency-based body sculpting transmits energy waves into the body. These waves leave the healthy skin and muscle tissues unharmed. They reach fat cells and, targeting molecules within them, cause the cells to vibrate rapidly and heat up. This triggers lipolysis, which is your body’s natural method of burning fat.
At Blush, we’ve found radiofrequency using the Legend Pro™ to be the most effective body contouring solution for our patients in and around Toledo. It is the most customizable and has the benefit of skin tightening and cellulite reduction, whereas treatments like liposuction can actually make cellulite worse if not properly addressed. That said, we do work with patients who have received liposuction and are referred to us by a plastic surgeon for further body contouring treatments.
Is body sculpting safe?
Body sculpting is a perfectly safe outpatient procedure. Our Lumenis Legend Pro™ body sculpting platform is noninvasive and, for most patients, painless. The treatments themselves are actually considered comfortable by many patients, who liken it to hot stone massage. The radiofrequency technology is regenerative, not harmful.
What are the side effects of body sculpting?
One of our favorite parts about body sculpting with the Lumenis Legend Pro™ is that it does not have side effects! Some other body sculpting treatment options will leave you with days or even weeks of downtime. Treatments with the Legend Pro™ are clinically proven to be safe and effective. At most, you may expect a bit of redness with very little swelling, but the vast majority of our patients return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
What to expect for your Lumenis Legend Pro™ appointment
When you choose Toledo’s favorite body sculpting destination for your treatments (that’s us ), expect the best.
- Every relationship with us begins with a consultation given by a nurse practitioner. The consultation will include in-depth conversations about your health, goals, and options. Your consultation will involve an examination of the areas of your body you would like to address.
- Once we work with you to establish that the Legend Pro™ is right for you, we’ll schedule your first treatment. Treatments are quick and easy, so you can schedule them during your lunch break! The treatment is so mild that we generally don’t have to apply numbing agents. You will get immediate results, but for the best outcomes, most patients receive multiple treatments over time. We recommend that you are very well hydrated before your treatments.
- Because the treatment is noninvasive, there’s no real aftercare to worry about! Movement and exercise are encouraged immediately after to give you faster results. Stop in on your way to your workout and let your body help eliminate fat cells faster! We will of course follow up to make sure you’re happy with results.
