BODY CONTOURING TREATMENTS
AQUALYX & DESOFACE, DESOBODY
The new Deoxycholic acid fat dissolving injection is designed to treat those difficult localised pockets of fat.
Desobody, Desoface and Aqualyx products are proven to reduce fat deposits in the right patients. The sterile solution is indicated for localised adiposity of the face, neck and body. When treating the body localised adiposity is reduced and skin firmness is improved. When treating the face, drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised adiposity.
How is Deso, different to the older fat dissolvers on the market?
Desobody, is the newest body fat dissolving injection formula on the market to date. It contains the active ingredient sodium deoxycholate (deoxycholic acid) which is a special, FDA-approved, medical detergent to break down fat cells. It has been shown to be safer, more effective and more comfortable than other older fat dissolvers such as Aqualyx and others on the market.
Desobody & Desoface strength is 1.25%, double the strength of Aqualyx.
What does it feel like?
As it is a medical, minimally invasive treatment there maybe some level of mild to moderate discomfort or sensitivity especially at the start of the treatment. The pain should be easy tolerated. The injectable does contain a local anaesthetic inside to minimise discomfort as much as possible.
What can you expect immediately after the fat dissolving injections?
The treatment maybe followed by initial redness, localised swelling, bruising, tenderness and sensitivity in the treated area.
How long before we will see results?
Each patient is different however you should start seeing results from 2-3 weeks after your treatment. The gradual action
of the solution needs time to achieve the treatment aim. A course of treatments is required for larger areas of fat reduction. The results are permanent with sensible lifestyle , as fat cells are being destroyed.
What is the downtime involved for the deso or Aqualyx?
Initial localised swelling and redness in the treatment area usually resolves within 3-4 days. There may be minor bruising, at the injection sites. Sensitivity and tenderness around the treated area, this will generally resolve in up to 10-14 days.
What instructions must clients follow after fat dissolving injections?
*When having tummy, inner or outer thigh areas treated it is suggested to wear a compression garment after the treatment for 72 hours e.g spanks.
*Your normal daily routine may carry on and you may exercise as normal.
*Avoid hot showers or baths on the day of your treatments.
*2-3 days after your fat dissolving injections its a recommended to massage the treated areas.
*Avoid self tan for a week until the skin has fully healed.
*It's recommended to drink 1.5 to 2 litres of fluid a day.
Are there any complications during or after the treatment?
During the treatment bruises may occur and that's why it is advised to pause with taking substances that dilute the blood and increase the risk of bruises, such as aspirin, nurofen, voltaren, vitamin e. An occurrence of painful nodules is usual and is a consequence of the inflammatory process that develops when fat is dissolved.
THE ULTIMATE FAT BUSTING MACHINE
A 4-in-One machine that caters for all customer preferences when it comes to fat loss. Whether it's laser lipo, fat freeze, cavitation, radio frequency skin tightening, or all the above, it is sure not to disappoint.
A single treatment can reduce 5-15cm body fat and is ideal for treating stubborn areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. Added Radio frequency capabilities for skin firming benefits, makes this machine a true body contouring all-star, and clinically proven results mean this technology will astonish anyone.
Cryogenic freezing or lipolysis is a portmanteau of 'cryogenic' meaning a branch or physics that deals with the production and effects of very low temperatures, and 'lipolysis' meaning the breakdown of fats and other lipids by hydrolysis to release fatty acids . It is a medial treatment used to destroy fat cells. Its principle relies on controlled cooling to a temperature of +5 to -5oc for the non-invasive localised reduction of fat deposits in order to reshape body contours. The exposure to cooling is set so that it causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without damage to the overlaying skin. The procedure is billed as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
The process is also known as 'fat freezing'
How much fat expected to lose in one session?
A 26% reduction of body fat is the expected removal in 25 minute session.
Heart disease, Liver disease, pace maker, high blood pressure, asthma, deep vein thrombosis, cancer, haemophilia, blood clotting disorders, pregnancy, metal implants, enema, eczema, psoriasis, immune disorders - lupus, HIV, AIDS.
Advantages of fat freeze.
As a completely non-invasive procedure, fat freeze offers patients, many benefits over other fat reduction procedures. Some of these benefits include, no incisions, no pain, no aesthetic required, no time downtime.
What you can expect post treatment?
Reddening of the skin that can take a few hours to a few days to subside. Temporary bruising to the skin, which can take up to 3 weeks to subside. A temporary dulling sensation of the frozen area, which will subside within 3 weeks, some patients may feel pain within the frozen area, this will subside again within 3 weeks.
Post treatment care....
No supplements or diet plan are required and you do not need to change your exercise habits. However fat freeze lipo is not suitable for taking care of your body, and you should follow the simple aftercare advice given. You may feel more motivated to take more care of yourself after the treatment. After all this is an investment. Combining fat freeze with a healthy diet and lifestyle will only further maximise your result.
Increase your water intake to help flush the dead fat cells. Avoid caffeine and other toxins to support your body's natural process.
A typical treatment takes 25 minutes, maximum per area. Its advised to wait 4-5 weeks before a second session. This is to ensure you see results from the first session and the body has time to remove the frozen fat cells.
Is it painful?
During the procedure clients remain comfortable and can resume back to work immediately after. Fat freeze is completely safe and non-invasive. Its technology has been approved by the FDA and there is no downtime following the treatment.
How many sessions are needed?
One session is sufficient for most people, for most areas. Fat freeze has the advantage of not usually requiring a course treatment. Depending of the thickness of the area and clients personal goals, fat freezing maybe repeated in the same area a second time, but is not always needed. If you choose that that you would like a further reduction in the same area, preferable waiting time between sessions is approximately 4-5 weeks. This is to give enough time to measure the effectiveness of the initial treatment. Clinical trial data has shown for most people a second treatment within the 4-5 weeks after the first does lead to a greater reduction.
The laser lipo utilises the latest low level/cold laser technology to reduce fat in the body without surgery, downtime, or redness. Pads are placed onto the body and the laser within penetrates the skin at specific wavelength (650nm), targeting adipose (fat) cells and making them shrink drastically. These cells are permented, releasing free fatty acids (FFA), water, and glycerol (aka Triglycerides) which normally only happens when the body is in need of energy.
A consultation with the technician will take place to talk about laser lipo and the clients desired goals. Paddles are placed on the area for a period of time that will be discussed during the consultation. The treatment is to be repeated as necessary. Results are shown during the first session however to gain maximum results 8-10 treatments depending on the area, will be needed. The lipo lasers non-invasive treatment is considered one of the most innovative methods to treat stubborn areas of fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. It is known as the laser BCS (body contouring system) worldwide. Laser lipo treatments help create a new and improved look without pain and discomfort instantly. Research has shown that cavitation treatment carried out both prior and post laser lipo will improve the results by first softening the fat cells and then helping to even out the treatment area afterwards. This procedure can be completed in just 40 minutes and positive results can be seen INSTANTLY.
Is it painful and safe?
Yes it's completely safe and non-invasive, clients feel no pain, expect maybe some warmth. Laser lipo has been studied for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes. This is an FDA approved innovative technology for, pain free fat loss.
How many sessions are needed?
2 sessions per week- 8 per course/area. we do not advise more than two sessions per week, as it can cause to much strain on the body to remove all the released fat at once. Any fat that can not be metabolised by the body would then be restored resulting in minimum effect.
How is the fat eliminated from the body?
The released fat is used by the body as a source of energy. By avoiding fatty foods within 48 hours after the treatment, the body will use the released fat at once. Any fat that can not be metabolised by the body would then be restored resulting in minimum effect.
How long does a session take?
Treatment sessions can be anything from 20 minutes to 60 minutes maximum. The longer the treatment the better the result. However if combinding with cavitation then the recommended time would be 40 minutes followed by 20 minutes of cavitation.
Liver disease, heart disease, kidney stones & gallstones, hypertension, diabetes, poor blood circulation, hyperlipidaemia, pregnancy and breast feeding, pacemaker or metal implants, over silicone implants, skin inflammation/wounds in the treatment area, abdomen during menstruation, vascular veins, cancer.
Normal post treatment reactions...
Mild redness and heat in the treatment area- Aloe vera may be applied to cool the area
Post treatment care
Drink 1.5 litres of water after the treatment, take 10 minutes physical exercise after treatment to stimulate the lymphatic system and elimination process, healthy diet and avoid fast food
Ideal for body reshaping and cellulite reduction, Cavitation works by converting fat into liquid on a cellular level. The liquid can then be naturally drained by the body's lymphatic and urinary system. The device is placed onto the skin, transmitting low-level, pulsating ultrasonic waves. This process of compressing and expanding energy causes shock and pressures the fat cells, which eventually burst and emulsify.
Cavitation is great for areas such as thighs, abdomen, flanks, and buttocks. These area's are popular, although there are no real limitations as to where it can be used on the body.
How does it work?
The hand piece that we apply to the skin transmits low level ultrasonic waves which compress and expansion. The compression and expansion cycles travel at high speed that causes many micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. As these micro-bubbles expand and contract the shockwaves, the fat cells can no longer endure the pressure and explode. The fat explodes into liquid that is then easily removed from the body by the lymphatic and urinary system.
Is ultrasound cavitation painful and safe?
Yes, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain.
The heat from the handpieces felt during the treatment is perfectabley tolerable. This treatment is non-surgical procedure without anaesthesia. No downtime should be experienced after the treatment.
Fat is a solid substance, how can it be eliminated through urine?
The ultrasound cavitation causes the fat cells to turn the liquid (emulsification) this makes it easier to leave the body through the lymphatic and urinary system.
How many sessions are needed?
2 sessions per week, 8 per course per area. Anymore than this per week and it would cause to much stress on the body to eliminate the fat.
How long is a session?
Depending on the area, a typical treatment would take between 10-40 minutes.
Liver disease, hypertension, diabetes, poor blood circulation, hyperlipidaemia, pregnancy and breast feeding, pacemaker or metal implants, skin inflammation/wounds in treatment area, unable to treat the face, neck, ankles, lymph nodes and joints, abdomen during menstruation, vascular veins, cancer.
Normal post treatment reactions...
Noise in the ear during treatment (this is due to the sound waves made in the body passing through the ear) mild redness and heat in the treatment area.
Abnormal post treatment reactions
Swelling, some patients may have a strong reaction to cavitation waves and cause temporary swelling to the area. To avoid this happening the practitioner can use a lower setting for the next session.
Post treatment care...
Drink 1.5 litres of water after treatment, take 10 minutes physical exercise after treatment to stimulate the lymphatic system and elimination process, healthy diet and avoid fast food.
The bipolar and tripolar uses two hand pieces, which provide controlled radio frequency energy for deep (up to 20mm) and superficial (2-6mm) penetration of RF energy.
The tripolar hand piece allows deep controlled penetration of RF energy and treats skin tightening and collagen production by;
Tightening the underlaying tissues, which in turn causes a production of new collagen and pushes out wrinkles.
Increased blood circulation to the area to heal and repair the area.
The bi polar hand piece penetrates less deeply onto the skin tissue and is ideal for use on facial tightening procedures, where the controlled heating at the controlled heating at the desired penetration depth is perfect.
The RF produces alternating high and low frequency currents no less than a thousand times per second. Water molecules within the skin tissue twist and vibrate, causing friction and creating heat. This heat promotes blood circulation and also generates a wound healing response within the body. The dermal layer of the skin thickness and collagen is newly produced, resulting in wrinkles being pushed out as the skin becomes more firm. Radio frequency technologies are used for collagen production, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, minimising acne scars, minimising pores.
Non-surgical facelift, lunchtime facelift, cellulite reduction.
Bi polar and tripolar are radio frequencies. They use the radio frequency energy that causes the water molecules in your tissues to twist and vibrate. This motion causes friction, which creates heat at a very specific areas deep in your skin. The heat subsequently generates a focused wound healing response that can take up to 4 months to complete, that realigns and regenerates collagen in your skin (a form of collagen induction therapy)
Our machine generally tightens, smoothes and re-contours your skin from inside and out, which also rejuvenates your skin's firmness and texture.
What can RF be used for?
We can use bipolar radio frequency for smaller areas and tripolar for larger areas as the tripolar goes deeper and wider, which results in quicker treatment time.
We can treat;
skin tightening for areas that have loose skin after laser lipo and cavitation.
Acne scarring to develop more collagen to remove the acne scars and give a smoother appearance
Wrinkle reduction to improve collagen and tighten the skin to remove wrinkles
Pores to minimise the appearance of pores by contracting them.
Is it safe?
Yes, Radio frequency, skin tightening treatment is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the session is perfectly tolerable.
How many sessions are needed?
2 sessions a week are needed, 8 sessions for maximum results.
How long is a session?
The treatment time will vary depending on the area, however a full face would normally 20 minutes.
What are the benefits?
To tighten the skin, improves collagen, wrinkles reduction, improves acne scarring, contract pores.
