For any practice to refer to “effective skin tightening treatment” in Calgary and beyond, the answer to “Does skin tightening really work?” must be an enthusiastic “Yes!”


The team at Silverado Medical and Aesthetic Clinic use a combination of radiofrequency energy and pulsed electromagnetic fields with Venus Legacy. Applicators placed on targeted areas deliver this energy, which produces heat under the skin’s surface. Controlled, precise heating targets the cause of sagging, wrinkles, stubborn fat, and cellulite: the slowdown in your body’s natural production of firming collagen and springy elastin. Venus Legacy’s technology promotes new collagen and elastin for tighter skin and more youthful contours. Gentle heat also melts fat cells, which are eliminated from the body safely. Unlike fat cells that simply shrink as the result of diet, exercise, or other procedures, destroyed cells can’t grow back in the treatment area.

This combination of RF and electromagnetic pulses uses VariPulse technology. During treatment, adjustable pulsed suction painlessly pulls up the skin, allowing healing energy to penetrate deeper into tissues for effective results.


As an “all-in-one” treatment, Venus Legacy has many applications, and may be safely and effectively used on the face, body, and all skin types. Weekly treatments can be completed in 15 to 30 minutes, and you’ll see gradual results in six to eight sessions per area. The heat and suction are easily adjusted for a relaxing, gentle treatment. Since there’s nothing to recover from, you can get back to work, family, exercise, and other activities without interruption.

Venus Legacy was the subject of an 8-week Canadian study of the system, which found:

  • A “steady to significant decrease” in wrinkles
  • Average decrease of 3.1 cm in abdominal and hip areas

After eight weeks, Cornell University researchers reported 96.7 percent of those treated with Venus Legacy reduced their wrinkles, without any adverse side effects. Experience for yourself the power of this Health Canada-licensed skin tightening technology.
