As we enter 2018, you can feel inundated with ‘new year resolutions’ and ‘losing weight’ proves to be the most popular of them all! After over-indulging at Christmas, it can feel daunting getting back on track but it’s not impossible. Alongside a balanced and healthy lifestyle, we have a range of treatments to tone and tighten the body so you can achieve the best version of you!
Fat Freezing is a body contouring procedure that acts as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. CoolTech® reduces fat tissue with Cryo-technology using a controlled cooling system.
After a cool gel pad covers the treated area, the CoolTech® hand-piece is then applied and begins to create a vacuum effect that reduces blood flow.
The fat tissue is then momentarily cooled and as body temperatures drop from around 3C to -8C, fat cells begin to freeze and crystalize, causing cell death. This process lasts around 70 minutes and as this is a non-invasive treatment, you are free to enjoy a book or work from your laptop.
After the applicator is removed when the treatment session is complete, the area will appear red and lumpy. Your Aesthetic Practitioner massages the treated area to further break down the unwanted fat. The fat cells are then gradually eliminated through the normal metabolism process (via the lymphatic system).
It is non-invasive as there are no incisions required, and therefore no recovery time is needed. Stubborn pockets of fat can be removed without additional diet or exercise.
Body Contouring is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses a combination of radio-frequency and ultrasound technology to ultimately improve the tone and appearance of the skin.
Radiofrequency uses heat to transform collagen fibres. As the RF current passes through the dermis, these fibres begin to contract and thicken. This process aids in the skin’s own ability to produce collagen and elastin which ultimately boosts the skin, giving it a ‘plumped’ and firm appearance.
Ultrasound uses cold and hot ultrasonic waves that vibrate and destroy fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The selective sound waves disrupt fat cell membranes leading to the gradual breakdown and release of stored fat through the lymphatic system and to help improve the appearance of cellulite.
Both RF and ultrasound work in synergy to improve over-all skin quality making it tighter and firmer so it’s also a great way of contouring and sculpting body areas. Using the same technique, it shall tone and tighten specific problem areas. It’s the ideal treatment for those not wanting to undergo cosmetic surgery for the risk factor but wish to rid loose stomach skin or tone the thighs.
