If you are mourning the end of Love Island and wondering just how some of the Islanders manage to keep fat at bay it maybe that laser lipo, or non-surgical fat removal, is the secret. Cara de la Hoyde, winner of the 2016 contest revealed earlier this year that after the birth of her son, she was horrified by the sudden appearance of a double chin. Although this is perfectly natural, especially post-baby, the soft fatty area under the jaw can be a problem zone and often tricky shift, so, Cara immediately took action and undertook a course of non-surgical liposuction prior to her marriage in July this year to her Love Island partner and joint winner Nathan Massey. While we didn’t treat Cara at our clinic in Hertfordshire, the team at the Skin to Love Clinic do offer non-surgical fat removal treatments. As with all procedures, this type of treatment will not be for everybody; at the Clinic, you will have a thorough consultation with a medical professional who would assess you, which will include your eating habits and treatment goals, prior to agreeing to any treatment plan.
Fat freezing – a non-invasive way to fight the fat
Are you, after months of pre-summer exercise close to your ideal weight but are still finding stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to budge? If ‘yes’ is your answer and you are looking for a non-invasive, safe way to fight the fat then we may suggest a treatment of Cristal fat freezing at our Hertfordshire Clinic. Designed as a one-off therapy, Medical Cryolipolysis, that’s the technical term, uses technology that has been developed based on evidence that fat cells are removed from that body when exposed to cold temperatures and is ideal for treating arms, love handles, abdomen, saddlebags, legs and knees. Fat freezing is not a weight-loss treatment but designed to sculpt and remove stubborn pouches of fat to give you a more streamlined, svelte-looking figure. The procedure, which takes an hour, can cause mild discomfort but the good news is that you will be able to resume your normal activities the same day and positive outcomes can usually be seen in 4-10 weeks. The treatment is permanent, and it can be repeated to boost results, sadly it does not stop the remaining fat cells from becoming larger if you do not follow a healthy, balanced diet.
Reduce and Sculpt unwanted fat away!
Alternatively, if you are close to your ideal shape but are keen to permanently reduce and sculpt unwanted fat on your abdomen, love handles or thighs then Liposonix, our popular non-surgical fat sculpting treatment, maybe the treatment for you. This non-invasive procedure uses high-intensity focused-ultrasound technology to get rid of targeted fat around the waistline. The treatment, which takes upwards of 20 minutes depending on the size of the area being dealt with, can cause mild to moderate discomfort and it’s recommended that patients wear loose comfortable clothing after their session. Again, Liposonix is designed as a one-off experience, but further treatments can be undertaken to enhance the outcome and results can usually be seen between 4-12 weeks.
At the Skin to Love Clinic consultations are an important part of the treatment process. It helps you to understand the treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation, your characteristics, such as your medical background, the amount of unwanted fat and desired treatment area, will be assessed. Your medical practitioner will be able to discuss whether this treatment is appropriate for you, as well as any suitable alternative treatments. It is also important to understand that all non-surgical treatments are not a replacement for surgical alternatives such as liposuction. So, if you would like to have a chat with one of our team about tackling stubborn pockets of fat and non-surgical fat removal treatments then please call the clinic to book an appointment on 01727 837429.
