POST PREGNANCY AESTHETICS
LOOSE SKIN & STUBBORN FAT POCKETS AFTER PREGNANCY
Loose abdominal muscles, extra skin, increased fat and a relaxed pelvic area all contribute to the 'belly pouch' look after pregnancy. The skin is our largest organ and it is put through it's paces in many ways when women are pregnant; from stretch marks, varicose veins, acne, to spider veins. Most of these problems disappear after pregnancy but unfortunately, some women still have the weight gain, 'mummy tummy', and loose, sagging, stretched skin to deal with. Skin is made of collagen and elastin, it expands when we gain weight, but when we lose the weight suddenly (giving birth) it has a hard job returning to the shape it was before. Luckily, there are many great treatments that can take your skin, and in particular your stomach back to the way it used to be.
Call into our London, Harley Street clinic for a consultation on how to get rid of the 'mummy tummy' and other post pregnancy aesthetic concerns.
HOW IT WORKS
Ultraformer medical grade HIFU is a skin tightening and lifting treatment, it's entirely non invasive and targets the SMAS, the layer that sits between the muscle and the skin, the very same area a plastic surgeon would pull and tug at during surgery, however this treatment is entirely non invasive and improvement continue to be seen for months after treatment. HIFU is a revolutionary skin tightening treatment, which can work wonders on tightening and lifting the ‘mummy tummy’, a problem most women face after having children. Ultraformer technology, tightens loose skin on the stomach, thighs, and just under the buttocks. The applicator is placed along your problem areas, the ultrasound energy from destroys fat cells, at the same time your body stimulates new collagen production. The results are smoother, tighter skin, with reduced circumference in just under an hour and with minimal pain involved.
Stomach fat is tricky, it can be stubborn to lose and unfortunately very easy to gain. It can be one of the most frustrating types of fat for everyone, but especially women, who typically store more fat than men, and typically store fat on the lower abdomen post pregnancy.
SCIZER targets stubborn pockets of fat and destroys them. Scizer is designed to manipulate fat cells (adipocytes) in the subcutaneous layer using a non-invasive focused ultrasound scanner. The treatment targets and reduces localised fat and effectively improves the contours of the body, fat cells are eliminated through the bodies natural metabolic processes. The SCIZER's hand-piece is equipped with a cooling function to ensure patient comfort during the treatment. This effective procedure results in a visibly slimer waistline, reduction in love handles with a minimal side effects and no downtime. Results can be seen almost immediately, but improvements will continue for up to 3 months.
