There’s a buzz about body contouring treatments currently as technology continues to improve and exciting, innovative devices are now available that can deliver big results. We might work hard in the gym and watch what we eat but we know that achieving body perfection often requires an extra helping hand.
Here’s the Karidis Clinic guide to best body treatments:
Best body treatment for firming and lifting
Addressing sagging skin on the face and body has always been more challenging for non-invasive devices, but now there is an alternative to surgery for men and women who have mild skin laxity.
Exilis Ultra 360 utilises radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and reduce fat on the face, neck, stomach, thighs, arms, back, thighs and knees. RF shrinks and breaks down the fat cells, so they are safely eliminated by the body, while at the same time stimulating the production of collagen fibres. Overtime, the overlying skin becomes tighter and firmer.
Clinical studies have shown a 42% average reduction in wrinkles and 35% reduction in skin laxity on average.
Limited launch price: prices are subject to consultation but we are currently offering Exilis Ultra 360 from £150 for the face and from £350 for the body. Prices are available until the end of February for patients that book and pay during this period.
Best body treatment for sculpting and shaping
We all have areas of the body we tend to fixate on and now there is a device that can visibly reduce fat and build muscle on the arms, thighs, calves, buttocks or stomach. EMSCULPT NEO combines two different energies in a totally unique approach to body contouring device.
Radiofrequency energy heats the muscles fibres, preparing them for the HIFEM+ energy which rapidly contracts them – in just one session, you perform the equivalent to 20,000 crunches or squats. At the same time, the RF energy destroys subcutaneous fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. These fat cells are then safely eliminated by the body.
Over several sessions, it’s possible to visibly reduce fat by up to 30% and develop muscle mass by up to 25%.
Best body treatment for eliminating unsightly leg veins
Spider veins don’t just appear on the face. These groups of dilated veins that are close to the surface of the skin, appearing as either red or blue web-like blemishes, can also present on the legs.
The VBeam laser is one of the most effective treatments for spider veins. It produces an intense, yet gentle burst of light which selectively destroys these small blood vessels without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
Best body treatment for eradicating stubborn fat
Weight loss and fat reduction aren’t always the same thing. Even when we reach our target weight, it’s possible to have stubborn pockets of fat whether that’s bingo wings, bra fat, love handles, muffin top or a protruding pouch.
CoolSculpting is the world’s number one non-invasive fat removal, with more than 8 million CoolSculpting cycles performed worldwide.
CoolSculpting’s unique technology is based on cryolipolysis, the process by which freezing temperatures can destroy fat cells without any damage to the overlying skin or surrounding tissue. The destroyed fat cells are then safely removed by the body and results are permanent as long as you maintain a steady weight.
