Non-Surgical Body Contouring – What Does It Involve?
These days it may seem that most celebrities are undergoing surgeries to form their perfect bodies. However, not everyone can afford these surgeries or the recovery time. They may not even be the most effective solution to your problems! Non-surgical body contouring is all the rage at the minute as people recognise its powers – and its less hefty price tag.
Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we love to stay on trend with all the latest and best technologies, ensuring that you can receive the treatment and see the results that you want! So whether it’s fat loss or body contouring, our services will have something for you! If you don’t know where to begin with your research or which treatment is best, please keep reading to see our compiled list of the treatments we offer and what they involve.
Cavitation is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that eliminates fat cells from the body through ultrasound technology. The ultrasound waves apply pressure to fat cells, which fat cannot withstand, causing them to break down and turn into liquid, breaking the fat down into glycerol and free fatty acids. The body reuses glycerol while free fatty acids travel to the liver and excrete. Cavitation effectively targets the fat cells without harming any other cells meaning you can lose inches without surgery, so there’s no recovery time after the procedure! The great thing about cavitation is you can choose which area to target, meaning you can sculpt and contour your body exactly how you want, creating your ideal look. You’ll see results immediately after treatment; however, it’s recommended to receive between 6-8 treatments to achieve the perfect result.
Exclusive to our Liverpool clinic, Body HIFU is an effective way of helping you drop a whole dress size! Launched in 2017, it’s a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, and it targets fat removal whilst body sculpting. Body HIFU uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound to penetrate through the layers of the skin to reach the unwanted belly fat tissue without harming the skin or the surrounding tissues. The treatment delivers a 24 line matrix of focused energy (at a depth of 1.3cm). The controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of targeted fat as a collagen contraction in the treatment area, allowing the skin to tighten. As a result, Body HIFU can effectively reduce belly fat and other problem areas such as the arms and thighs, which can also be very difficult to lose weight naturally.
The beauty of Body HIFU is that, unlike other non-surgical fat loss procedures, it doesn’t require multiple sessions! In one go, you can achieve the body you’ve always wanted.
PROSCULPT uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology to engage the muscle; the electromagnetic field polarises and depolarises, creating motor neurone pulses in 100% of the muscle fibre, significantly more than what would be possible in conventional exercise. Your body is tricked into thinking it is going through an intense workout as the Prosculpt machine produces around 20,000 muscle contractions. Due to this, the body demands a greater supply of energy which causes the breakdown of fat cells surrounding the area. These fat cells are damaged beyond repair, and so the body naturally eliminates them.
The repeated contractions of the muscles ensure a much more efficient result than working out as the muscles are forced to adapt, which builds muscle and simultaneously burns fat.
This highly effective, non-invasive treatment is the latest in cellulite treatments, with our clients finding it highly effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite. 3D Shockwave works by stimulating fat breakdown, lymphatic drainage and collagen synthesis. It was initially used as a means of shrinking kidney stones to reduce pain. However, patients also noticed a reduced appearance in cellulite when being treated! The treatment is entirely pain-free and involves placing probes on the affected area, emitting shockwaves that disrupt fat cells and sclerotic fibrous tissue.
Although extremely effective on its own, Shockwave can also be used alongside other treatments at Aesthetics of Liverpool for both cellulite reduction and inch loss. In addition, it can accelerate fat loss and skin tightening treatments.
