Three Non-Surgical Procedures for the Body
Not only does ageing and weight change take its toll on our face, but it has a huge effect on our bodies too. To some people, the body is less of an important issue than the face as it can be easily covered up with clothes, but when summertime comes and clothes get lighter, these factors then become increasingly distressing – especially for women.
Many people run a family and a busy lifestyle, so making time for regular exercise and trying to plan meals daily, can prove tough to tackle. Ageing also means that some people can’t even exercise as regularly or as vigorously as they used to be able to – again making it hard to shape and tone the body well.
Pregnancy also has an effect, with women feeling deflated post-birth due to the changes in their weight which has a negative impact upon planning pregnancies in the future. Also with weight, pregnancy and ageing, comes uninvited lines, scars stretch marks and cellulite.
Some people may well consider surgery, but this should be well researched and discussed thoroughly to ensure that you want to pursue with it. For others, surgery is too scary, too costly or just isn’t something they would consider. Dr. Thevendra offers a range of non-surgical, non-invasive, quick and easy treatments that can help target all of your ageing and weight issues.
Aqualyx is a water solution that is injected into stubborn fat areas around the body. It contains plant polymers, which binds with the cell walls of the fat tissue before rupturing and releasing the fat to be dissolved. The solution is injected into the fat through a special fine needle and multiple treatments are usually required depending on which area is treated. Two to eight sessions will offer optimum results. The fat will be destroyed permanently but regular exercise and a healthy diet will maintain the results and prevent other areas from storing fat.
Accent RF uses radio frequency waves to instantly kill fat cells and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms fatty deposits on the body. It targets fatty deposits, cellulite and tightens the skin. The Accent RF promotes healthy collagen production which improves your body’s contours and skin surface texture, giving it a more youthful appearance. Additionally, the Accent RF can be used for body reshaping, improving your body’s contours and even reducing excess inches. This technology presents a non-invasive, effective and long-lasting way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Carboxy Therapy treatment refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas (CO2). When we breathe in oxygen to our lungs, the red blood cells pick up the oxygen in our lungs and carry it to our tissues until they encounter an area that has been working hard and has an excess of carbon dioxide. When the blood cells are exposed to high concentrations of carbon dioxide, they flip their conformation, release the oxygen molecules, and pick up the carbon dioxide so that we can exhale it from our lungs. In a sense, by injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just below the surface of the skin, we are tricking it into increasing the blood circulation to that area. This procedure is known to improve skin elasticity, encourage collagen repair, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenate skin especially effective on the décolletage, target cellulite and stretch marks and destroy localised fatty deposits.
All of the above procedures are suited to those who are of an ideal weight, or have reached their goal weight as they are not weight loss solutions. Book a consultation with Dr. Thevendra to find out more about the above treatments and discuss which treatment is best for you.
