With elasticity depletion and sluggish circulation, cellulite can become more apparent. To treat cellulite effectively, you should focus on improving circulation and boosting your elasticity levels through conscious awareness of lifestyle choices (smoking, drinking and poor diet all contribute to breaking connective tissue fibres). Certain skin care products can also improve the quality of the skin, and so we recommend a combination approach of treatment, ongoing product use and manual circulation boosting.
Combining radiofrequency and ultrasound, Accent Prime HD simultaneously firms and tightens the skin and reduces fat cells to improve the skin’s dimply appearance. The treatment can support the growth of the skin’s pliability protein to smooth the skin over time.
Your treatment programme will begin with a consultation where one of our highly experienced aestheticians will determine your suitability for treatment and discuss what the programme involves, as well as your treatment goals.
The handpiece used will depend on the size of the areas that require treatment. Larger areas such as the stomach, thighs and buttocks require a larger handpiece. The aesthetician will place lubrication on the treatment area and will perform several passes over the area with the smooth plate.
The results can be visible after just one treatment, but we recommend a course of 4-6 treatments for optimal results. Results vary from patient to patient, but we recommend a ‘booster session’ every six months to continually improve the results.
Accent uses radiofrequency, delivering a thermal shock within the tissue – this causes the skin to contract, simultaneously promoting the growth of new collagen for firmer and tighter skin.
Additionally, ultrasound targets fat cells and disrupts them through shear wave vibrations. This process causes the fat cell membranes to break down, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed, while the fat cells are removed through the lymphatic system. Metabolism increases following fat destruction.
We recommend 4-6 treatments to see optimal results. Every 1-2 weeks.
A powerful way to reduce the appearance of cellulite is through boosting circulation. Endermologie gives a deep and powerful massage in troublesome areas like the thighs, stomach and arms. It also strengthens the support tissues of the skin making fat deposits less able to poke through.
If you’re having the treatment on your body, we will require you to purchase your own Endermologie suit before treatment. You must wash this suit at home and bring it with you to every session.
During the treatment, we will roll the device over the treatment area. The device sucks the skin, as the roller massages the tissue.
Improvement in skin radiance can be seen immediately after a treatment, with improved hydration. Depending on your specific skin concerns, you should expect to see improvement following a course of treatments.
Approximately 50 minutes depending on the treatment area.
8–10 initially, and once a month after completion of the course. Initially, several treatments can be had on a weekly basis, or once or twice a week. After the initial course, monthly treatments will help to maintain results.
Thermage FLX can improve the look of cellulite by using radiofrequency technology. It’s an FDA-approved treatment that can boost your circulation and increase your collagen levels to firm the skin and make it appear smoother.
The Thermage® FLX treatment starts with a consultation. At this point, we will determine whether the treatment will be suitable for your needs and desired goals.
Your aesthetician will trace a grid on to the skin, which helps to guide the application. The aesthetician will then make several passes over the treatment area with the handpiece in pulses which last for around half a second until the treatment is complete.
We also offer Thermage® CPT should you desire.
The consultation process plays an integral part in the overall outcome. At this point, we will discuss your expectations and what you’re hoping to achieve. Your age, the number of areas being treated and skin quality can influence the result and when the results will be seen.
You may see some immediate lifting, but the results of this treatment are usually progressive, with optimal improvement at around the six-month mark and improved when combined with other treatments and skincare. As the treatment works by stimulating collagen levels, the results continue to improve over time.
The results can last for one to three years, varying from patient to patient. Avoiding smoking, drinking, sun exposure and poor lifestyle habits will also prevent accelerated depletion of collagen and elasticity levels.
With sun damage a great contributor, our collagen levels begin to decrease. Elastin fibres, which give skin its stretch, also wear down and break over time. This causes accelerated ageing, that presents itself in the form of early jowls, crepiness of the skin on the face and the body, and lower facial sagging.
Thermage® FLX and Thermage® CPT uses radiofrequency energy, delivering it deep within the dermis to remodel existing collagen and elasticity, simultaneously inducing the production of new collagen which gives a tightening and plumping effect on the treated area.
Just a single session, but we recommend yearly treatments to maintain results.
By infusing the skin with essential antioxidants, the injectable treatment can support the synthesis of collagen and elastin production and improve your overall skin health. The micro-injections can also break up fat deposits.
Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment that delivers a custom combination of skin-enhancing ingredients to your complexion.
During your consultation, we will discuss your skin concerns to determine which formulation the nurse will administer through your Mesotherapy treatment. It will usually contain a blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamins and amino acids.
Before your treatment, we may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin.
Through a series of fine injections, a bespoke blend of peptides, growth factors and antioxidants are delivered into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin) from between 1-4mm beneath your skin to improve skin quality and function.
This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes – 1 hour.
The skin’s barrier function plays a vital role in protecting your skin from environmental aggressors such as pollutants, UV damage and irritants. When working optimally, your skin counteracts the harmful free radical damage that scavenges your healthy skin cells. However, with natural ageing, sun damage and other external forces, your skin cell barrier function weakens.
Lipids made up of cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acid form the barrier to prevent microrganisms and irritants entering the skin and protect it from Transepidermal water loss. When the skin barrier is weak, the skin can become dry, irritated and inflamed.
Mesotherapy is one way to encourage the restoration of your skin cell barrier function and restore your natural moisturising factors, to help bring your skin back to optimal health.
With over 60 different ingredient combinations, we can adapt the Mesotherapy to your skin’s needs. With an efficient transportation system and a surge in skin-loving ingredients, skin cell function improves, and the skin repair barrier becomes more resilient to environmental aggressors and other ageing factors.
Generally, a patient will need around ten sessions to see optimal results. The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s skin concerns.
These sessions are usually weekly for the first month, every two weeks over the second month, and sporadically from then onwards depending on how your skin responds to treatment.
