Why People Aren't Happy After CoolSculpting or Liposuction

Posted by Andrew on 11-Jul-2018 15:48:44

It can be pretty devastating if you pin your hopes, invest your money, and in the case of liposuction, endure a substantial amount of pain and long recovery period, with a cosmetic fat reduction procedure only to be disappointed with the results. Unfortunately, for some people that is the reality. The decision then is to live with it or invest more in corrective procedures.

Loose skin and unevenness are common side effects from liposuction and fat freezing treatments, and also following significant weight loss. Persistent cellulite is a typical disappointment with many fat reduction procedures.

Top Non-Invasive Anti-Wrinkle Treatments For Natural Results

Posted by Andrew on 19-Jun-2018 12:51:41

Anti-wrinkle injections are perhaps the most common form of anti-ageing cosmetic procedure today in terms of immediate, noticeable results with minimal downtime. To address wrinkles, muscle relaxants are used to stop the skin creasing and fillers are used to plump, add volume and also lift the valley of stubborn wrinkles. The key drawback is that cosmetic injections can, and do change the way you look. Over time, they can give a very unnatural appearance to facial features. There is also the consideration of injecting toxins or synthetic compounds into your skin.

The resounding benefit of anti-wrinkle treatment using scientifically-based and clinically proven devices is that you get a completely natural result as your body tightens and smooths skin, and builds new collagen where it has been lost due to ageing, without fundamentally altering your features.

Resolve vs Fraxel: An Honest Comparison of Laser Facial Rejuvenation

Posted by Andrew on 12-Dec-2017 15:35:35

Fraxel is a brand of fractional laser rejuvenation. Fractional laser concept relies on creating hundreds of thousands of tiny pinpoint columns of damage in the skin. Fractional means the columns of lasers are divided in grids and leaves untouched tissue between the damage. This has the advantage of speeding up healing and stimulates the production of collagen. Fraxel has launched a number of versions since the Fraxel Re:store was first released.

How To Treat Spider Veins Post Pregnancy

During pregnancy, not only are your hormones raging, you also have an increased volume of blood plus the additional weight that pregnancy brings that all lead to increased pressure on your veins. This increased pressure can force them to the surface of the skin to become very visible.

Spider veins are a form of vascular lesion which are malformations of veins, capillaries, lymphatic vessels and arteries.

The Science Behind Body Contouring with Skin Tightening

Posted by Andrew on 24-May-2017 11:13:01

Have you ever pondered the body’s incredible potential to heal itself? Our bodies are continually repairing and restoring and modern aesthetic science has harnessed this by developing devices that trigger your body to regenerate in the targeted treatment areas.   

Ageing and weight loss are two key contributors to loose or sagging skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity as the collagen and elastin becomes weaker and production of new cells slows. Following weight loss, the skin may not entirely shrink back if it has been over-stretched or stretched for a long period of time.

Syneron-Candela has created innovative technology, the VelaShape III, that stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin to smooth and tighten skin with the added benefit of body contouring.
