Body Contouring

If you’re eating well and exercising, but still not seeing the results you want, you’re not alone. Even with a diet and workout plan, many people still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that just don’t seem to disappear. You don’t need to resort to costly or painful surgeries to get the body you want. There’s an easier way.

Get one step closer to the figure you’ve always dreamed of with non-surgical body contouring treatments. They use advanced technology to safely and comfortably deliver energy below the skin’s surface, where it works to shrink fat cells. The result is a slimmer figure with a more defined shape. Today’s treatments can target both smaller, hard-to-hit areas like the arms and jawline, and larger, more common problem areas like the abdomen and thighs.

Venus Versa™ body contouring and cellulite reduction treatments work by using energy delivered through a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers while also shrinking the volume of fat cells. The result is a more sculpted and slimmer-looking body, tighter-looking skin, and cellulite that almost disappears.


  • Safe for all skin tones
  • Comfortable treatments with no downtime
  • Treatments last no more than 30 minutes each

Before the Treatment

The best candidate is someone who has pockets of cellulite and/or excess body fat 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’s stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)
  • An Internal defibrillator/pacemaker
  • Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area
  • Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
  • Varicose veins
  • Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure
  • Skin-related autoimmune diseases
  • Silicone implants and/or injections in the area

Yes. Venus Concept’s skin resurfacing treatments use technology that’s safe for all skin tones, even darker ones.

Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes no longer than 30 minutes.

Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.

Treatments are done once a week.

Just make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.

During the Treatment

Each session lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

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’s too hot, just let the operator know and they can easily lower the temperature a bit. If the technician is using the VariPulse™ feature (with Venus Legacy™), you will also feel a gentle suction on your skin, like a very low-power vacuum, as the applicator moves around the area. This can also be lowered if needed.

Venus Concept’s body contouring treatments are comfortable. The level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted to suit you.

After the Treatment

You’ll likely feel relaxed. The treatment is comfortable and some patients have even fallen asleep. The area may feel warm to the touch, but other than that, you’ll feel perfectly normal.

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, depending on the person.

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. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.

No, you do not need to do anything after your treatment.

Yes, you can apply makeup and/or lotion immediately after your treatment.
