COSMETIC CONCERNS Back to All Concerns


Even when fat isn't a problem, even the slimmest of people can still have cellulite; the lumpy, bumpy appearance that typically appears on the thighs and buttocks. Even with all the advances in cosmetic surgery and cosmetic medicine, there is no substitute for healthy lifestyles, diet and exercise and this should be promoted in every practice.

Previously the only real option for fat removal was liposuction although there are now many nonsurgical options that have been proven to work and do not have the high cost, risk or downtime associated with surgery. One of the most interesting latest technologies is cryolipolysis which freezes fat cells leading to their destruction and removal from the body. Cavitation uses ultrasound energy to vibrate the membranes of fat cells leading to them bursting open and the fat is then drained from the body through the lymphatic system. Radiofrequency is suitable for more superficial fat and also to aid skin tightening by targeting collagen to help achieve the perfect body image. Finally, carboxytherapy involves the administration of medical grade carbon dioxide which leads to the destruction of fat cells. At Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we often use a combination of different treatments on different areas to achieve the results that you want.

Although we offer several treatments to deal with fat and cellulite, the very best results are seen by combining medical technology with prescription diet, exercise and lifestyle
