EmSculpt: Everything You Need to Know About the Latest Fat-Reduction Hit

Tried and tested. Emsculpt is the most recent device to join the family of non-invasive, fat-reduction, and body contouring treatments. The device is becoming extremely popular around the world and is quickly rising to the status of other devices in the industry, such as fat-melting lasers like SculpSure and fat-freezing devices like CoolLipo Sculpting

The Mini MRI Machine

Emsculpt is unique in a way that it is the first device to utilise magnetic fields therapeutically. The non-invasive high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology induces 20.000 supramaximal muscle contractions in the 30-minute period, activating 100 percent of the muscle area. In comparison, when a person crunches or squats, he/she is activating only around 50 percent of every muscle group in a period of three to five seconds. In other words, the device contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone, and enhanced fat metabolism. For this reason, Emsculpt is nicknamed the mini MRI machine.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Unlike other devices and treatments that target the fat directly, Emsculpt dramatically increases the metabolic rate of the area around the muscle. Using the high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy EmSculpt induces a hypercontraction to the muscles which could never be achieved naturally. During these intense pulses, the muscles release chemicals which signals fat cells in the area to break down their contents and release them as free fatty acids. When these fatty acids overwhelm the fat cells, they cause malfunction, and the body naturally excretes them as waste. 

Because this fat-burning process is more of a residual effect from what the device is doing to your muscles, EmSculpt also helps with muscle building. With the device’s energy affecting the entire sheath of abdominals, from rib cage to groin, the muscles undergo cellular changes, thickening, and strengthening in the process. Due to its fat-burning and muscle building properties, it is safe to say that EmSculpt is a device where athletic meets aesthetic.

The Emsculpt Procedure

Emsculpt is a non-invasive and completely safe treatment with no downtime. It is authorised and approved by relevant health institutions in countries all over the world. Patients that undergo the treatment are usually women between 30 and 50 years of age. Because of its muscle tightening properties, it is an especially popular treatment for women after the pregnancy. The actual procedure is relatively painless, but some patients may experience slight discomfort. 

The treatment starts with the device being strapped on the desired area. The patient then undergoes a 30-minute session, which is done through three cycles. The first cycle begins at lower power, inducing around hundred contractions per second. The power is increased during the second cycle, inducing around thousand contractions per second. It is extremely important that the treatment is done by a experienced clinician, as too much power could hyperstress the muscle. The third cycle induces deliberate contractions that are designed to flush out any toxins or lactic acid unleashed by muscles. The procedure is designed specifically so that there is no build-up or dangers of over-exercising. 

The Emsculpt Sessions

This treatment is gaining popularity due to its immediately visible effect. Some EmSculpt reviews have reported, even after a single visit, you will notice the targeted area feeling better. However, the more sessions you do, the more power your muscles can take, making them more effective in reducing body fat. For maximum results, it is recommended that patients undergo treatments twice a week for two weeks, for a total of four sessions. The results will be fully visible two to four weeks after the final appointment. Afterward, one treatment in three to six months is required to maintain the results.

Carbon Peel Laser

The latest Beauty Trend: Carbon Peel Laser Facial

The Carbon Peel Laser is a non-invasive and painless treatment for skin rejuvenation that is taking over the beauty world thanks to its lack of side-effects and zero recovery time. 

The whole session takes around 20 minutes, which makes it an extremely popular choice for celebrities and those who just want a quick treatment on their lunch break. One of the first markets for this type of treatment was in Asia, with Asian celebrities enjoying its many benefits. For this reason, it is also popularly called China Doll Peel. 

The latest state-of-the-art laser, mixed with carbon serum, quickly found its way further west. Providing an instantly refreshed appearance with a softer and smoother skin, Hollywood celebrities were quick to embrace it, giving it an additional nickname, Hollywood Peel.

How does the Carbon Peel Laser Facial work?

The process differs from other laser treatments due to its “two stages” approach. First stage consists of applying medical-grade carbon serum. This natural carbon cream is applied to your skin and penetrates deep into the pores. This lotion looks like mud mask and quickly absorbs oil, dead skin cells and pulls toxins to the surface.

When the mask dries off, it is time for stage two which involves the Q-switched ND Yag laser. Carbon particles attract the laser light and create an even surface for the laser. The carbon serum maximises the laser’s capability for destruction of any debris clogged in the pores and upper layers of the skin. When the laser passes over a certain area, it destroys the carbon mask along with dead skin cells, toxins and oil.

In addition, the Carob Peel laser has a wavelength of 1064nm. Unlike other lasers that deliver a single wavelength, the Q-switched laser uses short bursts. This is important, as the wavelength has high absorption level in melanin and other dark pigment. As a result, the laser energy will be absorbed mostly in the carbon mask and create the much desired glowing effect. This unique laser property makes it suitable to treat sun spots, freckles, birthmarks and other pigment-related conditions. 

The whole two stage process stimulates collagen production, which helps the skin look firmer and youthful. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity and gives bright and radiant complexion.

The requirements

The China Doll Peel is appropriate for all ages and skin types. It is beneficial to people with oily skin, acne and pigmentation problems. But there are some requirements needed prior to the treatment. You should have no tan and avoid sun exposure. This maximises the effect of carbon serum and Q-switched laser. Your clinician will give additional specific instructions if needed. After the treatment, you should avoid excessive sweating as to allow your skin to properly heal and produce collagen. It is recommended avoiding physical activity the same day.

The treatment results

Since the Carbon Laser Facial takes only 20 minutes, it is a perfect skin fix for the weekend or the week after. The carbon serum gives the skin a smoother, more natural and glowing appearance. The Carbon Peel laser facial effectively kills the bacteria that cause acne and balance oil production in the skin. The treatment is painless and patients reported only a slight sting on the skin. In most cases, there are no side effects to this treatment. However, some patients may have mild redness or itching, which goes away after few hours.

The results of the Carbon Peel Laser are instant, but unfortunately not permanent. This means you will have to do more treatments in order to get better and long lasting results. It is best done on a regular basis, with two to four weeks between the treatments to allow skin time to produce collagen and generate new skin cells. Doing Hollywood Peel once or twice a year will ensure that your skin stays rejuvenated at all times.

How CoolLipo Works

CoolLipo technology has been researched for many years undergoing rigorous testing. Medical experts know that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells in the body. CoolLipo zones in on those areas and works without causing any stress or trauma to the surrounding skin. Using precise speed and temperature along with advanced technology, CoolLipo shocks the area of fat by freezing it so that it becomes traumatised. Then the same area is cooled down at a very exact rate. During this process, the fat cells become crystallised. This causes the membrane of each fat cell stress which eventually kills off the cell. The cells are naturally broken down by your body and eliminated permanently. There is no scarring or skin damage.

Who Is A Candidate?

If you follow a healthy diet and are of normal weight or a few kilos overweight then you will be the ideal candidate for CoolLipo. It’s especially designed for stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away despite good diet and exercise.

Who Isn’t A Candidate For CoolLipo?

As with any treatment, sometimes there are those who aren’t suitable for CoolLipo. If you have a history of cryoglobulinaemia or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria then you are not a suitable candidate. CoolLipo is not designed for you if you want to lose a significant amount of weight. It is only suitable for small, targeted areas. Before undergoing CoolLipo you should be of a normal or near-normal weight.

Do I Need A Consultation First?

At Advanced Dermatology we would invite you in for a consultation with one of our cosmetic team. All of the Advanced Dermatology team are highly trained in CoolLipo so understand exactly what to do and how to advise you. You will be assessed and a treatment plan created bespoke to your needs. The treatment plan will detail what CoolLipo can do to sculpt your body. Some patients will only need one or two treatments, others need more depending on number of areas to be targeted and amount of fat to be removed.

CoolLipo Cost

Your initial CoolLipo consultation at Advanced Dermatology is free. Once our team has devised your treatment plan, you will be advised of the cost. As an example of costs, one applicator ranges from $360-$560. The more applicators you have the cheaper it becomes. We will request a deposit to secure your appointments.

What Happens During a CoolLipo Session?

CoolLipo treatments are surprisingly comfortable and there is no need for anaesthetic. The machine treatment head targets specific areas using a “cup” shape mechanism that sucks fat inside and cools it very quickly. Many patients are so relaxed they read a magazine, have a well-earned rest or even catch up on work. Once treatment is over, your Advanced Dermatology team member will massage the area and then move onto any other areas that require treatment.

How Does it Feel To Have CoolLipo?

The only feelings you may experience are pressure and coldness but these only last a few moments. The nerve endings become used to the intense cold very quickly, so sensitivity lessens with time. It feels a little like something pulling and pinching skin, there may be numbness too. These feelings are positive because they mean that the fat reduction machine is working. Post-treatment you may experience some redness, bruising, swelling, firmness, tingling or even numbness. However, all of these after effects calm down quickly. As with any non-surgical treatment, there is always a risk of side effects but these are rare and will be explained to you prior to your treatment.

Is there any Down Time Following CoolLipo?

There is no downtime following CoolLipo as it is non-surgical. You can carry on with your daily routine as normal.

Do I Need to Do Anything in Particular Before CoolLipo?

You don’t need to take any medication or supplements or change your diet. You can wear whatever you want although you might want to bring compression garments with as some people say that they help with comfort post-treatment.

How Often Will I Need CoolLipo Treatments?

If you’ve been advised to have multiple CoolLipo treatments, we suggest spacing them out from four to eight weeks.

How Long Will It Be Until I See Results?

Some patients see results after three weeks but optimal results take up to six months. This is because it takes time for fat cells to die off and the body must flush out the dead cells. You should expect up to a 25% reduction in fat thickness. Results vary from patient to patient. With a healthy lifestyle you won’t get the fat back – it stays off permanently.


Meet Ultraformer

For years, facial rejuvenation was all about surgical facelifts; these days however, thanks to the latest technological and medical advances, novel procedures, such as Ultraformer are now available to the public.

A lot has been said these past years about non-invasive technologies that make optimal use of light or radiofrequency technologies, for instance; however, when it comes to assessing results or benefits, some doubts may arise. One of the latest developments in the field of cosmetic technologies involves the discovery of how High Intensity Ultrasound (HIU) can be used to rejuvenate the human skin and treat the symptoms of facial ageing.

Understanding Ultraformer

Utlraformer is a non-invasive technology that uses heat generated from HIU waves to create deep coagulation zones in the skin, which in turn, create an almost instant lifting effect. The beginning of the treatment triggers a process that continues after the first session has taken place.

Within six weeks, the formation of new collagen in the topmost skin layer is initiated. However, the process is not stopped there only. This new collagen continues to improve in quality and strength even after the treatment is over, thus ensuring a longer-term tightening effect.

How does Ultraformer Work?

Ultraformer has been found to be effective in dealing with all types of sagging skin, both on the face or in different body parts. This is why cosmetic practitioners are using it all over the world with outstanding results for both, facial lifts or body contouring procedures. Nonetheless, it is in the non-invasive facelift that Ultraformer excels the most.

Two different cartridges, providing three different sequences and five different depths, are used to target the needs of the facelift or of body-shaping. Since non-invasive facelifts are the most widely sought-after procedures, it is interesting to know how this process is carried out.

By using an exclusive elliptical transducer to deliver a higher peak power, the Ultraformer is able to reach effective coagulation much quicker than other standard techniques. This also means that a faster and less painful treatment is also possible in a shorter time.

HIFU energy is therefore delivered into the three layers of the human skin –the dermis, the epidermis and the subcutaneous musculoaponeurotic system. Since three different cartridges are used to reach the different levels, targeted effects can be ensured. When energy reaches its highest peak, the tissues are heated and the coagulation process begins, resulting in the immediate tightening of the skin in all of its levels. The collagen boosting process mentioned earlier rounds off the job by ensuring that the tightening effect lasts longer. This long-term effect is, in a way, a healing process of sorts that also contributes to the skin’s self-repair.

Which areas can be treated with Ultraformer?

Most critical areas are included in the targeted zones: forehead wrinkles, drooping eyebrows, eyelid creases, eye contour, jowls and V line forming, double chins, uneven skin tone, minor redness and dry patches, fine lines and wrinkles and finally, loose neck folds.

What to Expect

Patients who will be treated with Ultraformer can expect the following events to happen. Firstly, the targeted area is thoroughly cleaned. The medical practitioner will identify the main areas that will be treated. Next, ultrasound gel is applied on targeted areas so that the ultrasound energy can be delivered. Some tingling or warmth can be felt during the treatment. The entire session takes no longer than 20 or 30 minutes. No aesthetics is used and no downtime required. Facial skin begins to look healthier and brighter almost right away.

Final Comments

As with most novel technologies, there is still a lot to be expected from this treatment. What is already evident is that facelifts will never be the same with Ultraformer.

Guide to Fat Freezing Treatments

Shape and Sculpt with Fat Freezing

If you are struggling with body fat or just need help getting rid of those few stubborn areas of fat, consider having a cryolipolysis (fat freezing) treatment to help sculpt your body. Fat freezing has quickly become a top treatment for permanent fat reduction, with many options available. Over the past few years, the technology being used has become more advanced, cutting down session times and the expense. This means newer options are surpassing the likes of CoolSculpting in what they have to offer. 

What is Fat Freezing?

Fat freezing or cryogenic lipolysis is a non-surgical treatment that is an alternative to having liposuction. The process involves freezing fat cells as a means to reduce them. Cryogenic studies know that fat cells freeze a lot faster than skin cells do. The temperature used in fat freezing cool to a degree that allows fat cells to be killed without harming the surrounding skin cells.

The procedure can be done on many areas of the body where fat has become hard to shift, even through diet and exercise, such as the thighs, chin, stomach, back, and arms. The fat cells that are frozen will die off and fat freezing utilises the body’s own natural fat removal system. The results are a more sculpted-looking body with no scarring and no downtime

CoolSculpting Alternatives 

CoolSculpting is a name many know in the fat freezing industry. However, newer technologies in the industry are seeing names such as Clatuu, Cool Tech, and CoolLipo providing some alternatives to CoolSculpting that are more efficient and cost-effective. In all instances, the procedure is non-invasive, requires no surgery, and no downtime. The results achieved are long-lasting so that stubborn fat will be gone for good. The difference is in the applicators used for each one.

CoolLipo, Clatuu, and CoolTech

You may think that all fat freezing treatments are created equally. While all will get the results you are after eventually, new technologies in cryolipolysis make treatment times faster. Replacing CoolSculpting are newer devices, such as Clatuu, CoolTech, and CoolLipo. Where CoolSculpting uses one applicator device the others use 2 applicators. When you consider that CoolSculpting sessions can often take up to 3 hours, this can be very time consuming if you have a couple of areas to be treated. These newer devices, however, halve that time and save you money.

Clatuu, CoolTech, and CoolLipo all use 2 applicators at a time, which means two areas can be treated at the same time. With for example, Clatuu, they use a 360 cooling technology however the downside is that Clatuu isn’t able to treat that problematic chin area and possibly some other body areas. CoolTech and CoolLipo both are able to treat the chin area and have a variety of applicator shapes that can fit any area of the body. 

The winner: CoolLipo Sculpting

CoolLipo comes out as the best fat freezing option with its next-generation devices. CoolLipo is the most effective ‘Medical Grade’ Cryolipolysis system available in Australia, it is also one of the safest! With more than 500 installations in Europe, CoolLipo is the reference in medical cryolipolysis devices and it’s now available in Australia.

CoolLipo, in comparison to other fat freezing treatments, not only uses 2 handpieces that allow for two areas to be treated at once, the applicator cups are better and produce more precise and even temperature control.

The cup-shaped applicator devices pull the fatty area into it and freezes it, and then allows it to cool at very specific temperatures. This effectively kills off the fat cells. The cups are also much deeper for more specific targetting and come in a range of sizes. Compared to the older generation of fat freezing treatments, CoolLipo is able to reach colder temperatures with its medical grade cryolipolysis system. We found this to be the most efficient and effective fat freezing treatment in today’s market and it is fast becoming the top go-to for permanent fat reduction.

Fat freezing is a great alternative for those who are unable to have surgery. While the results can take a bit longer to see, as opposed to traditional liposuction, many areas will see a 20 to30% reduction of fat after their first treatment, and continued results over time. With treatments like CoolLipo on the market, getting rid of unwanted pockets of fat is becoming easier, less costly, and is much safer than surgery and other invasive treatments. 

PRP for Hair Loss

Hair Loss Treatment Sydney 

Hair loss or thinning hair can occur for a number of reasons. Although it’s more common in men than women both genders can be affected by this condition. Male pattern baldness is the number one reason men lose their hair although other factors such as genetics and an underlying health condition can play a part. For women hair loss can be a complex matter, encompassing a multitude of lifestyle and hormone-related causes. 

Fortunately, there’s hope for most types of hair loss with a promising hair restoration procedure known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).  A substantial body of evidence suggests that PRP is a safe, effective and proven solution for hair loss. In fact, thousands of happy patients have experienced first-hand dramatic improvement after their PRP treatments.  

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP uses your own blood – or rather the growth factors present in your blood plasma – to regenerate human tissue. This technique has been used successfully in sports medicine for many decades to speed up healing of injured tendons and ligaments. When applied to the scalp, PRP hair loss treatment works as a catalyst to stimulate the hair follicles and improve hair volume and density.  

If you’re seeking hair loss treatment in Sydney, PRP should be first on your list of treatments to try. Here’s why. It’s a proven medical treatment that consists of three steps. First, a small amount of your blood is drawn. Then it’s spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich-plasma component which is then collected in a syringe. Finally, it’s reinjected into the affected areas of the scalp. After only a few months you should see a dramatic improvement in hair thickness and growth.

How PRP Treatments Promote Hair Growth

Studies show that PRP impacts the growth of new hairs in a number of ways. According to a recent study, only two weeks after their first PRP procedure subjects of this clinical trial appeared to have increased epidermal thickness, number of new hair follicles and keratinocytes (cells which produce keratin). There was also substantial improvement in vascular activity (formation of small blood vessels) in the treatment area as compared to baseline. 

Researchers concluded therefore that PRP injections have the ability to trigger natural hair growth, increase hair counts and thicken the hair shaft by increasing blood supply to the scalp and hair follicles. The study also cited that no adverse side-effects were reported by any of the subjects, strengthening further the safety claims of PRP hair loss treatment.  

Who is A Good Candidate for PRP Hair Loss Treatment Sydney?

If you’re a man or woman struggling with thinning hair or receding hairline then you may be a good candidate for PRP treatment. Especially if you’ve only recently noticed changes in hair volume or density, you may experience better results than someone with progressive hair loss. That’s a good reason not to wait and seek treatment right away. Although most people can achieve some positive results, those with Androgenic alopecia and hereditary thinning and baldness respond particularly well to this procedure.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Many patients who have undergone PRP hair loss treatment report a reduction in hair loss or shedding within the first few months of their initial session. This is followed by new regrowth, improved thickness and tensile strength. Female patients may notice they can finally grow longer hair and styling becomes easier. 

For best outcomes, a course of three to six treatments may be recommended. After the initial session, injections are generally performed once a month (for the next three months), then scaled down to once every three to six months. Once patients have achieved their desired level of results, doing follow-up treatments on a long-term basis is ideal to maintain hair thickness and optimum follicle health.

The first step should always be a consultation with a medically-trained practitioner to ensure you are an ideal candidate for the PRP Hair Loss treatment. Our clinicians are here ready to help – consultations available at Sydney City, Bondi Junction and our Gold Coast clinic.

Hand Wrinkles

How to Rejuvenate Your Hands: Wrinkles, Volume and Texture

Hand wrinkles are not always the number one concern when it comes to anti-aging treatments. But they should be and for a good reason. That’s because the condition of your hands can give away your age in a split second. Hand wrinkles can occur alongside other tell-tale signs of getting older, such as protruding veins, ligaments, hyperpigmentation and crepey skin.     

Have you noticed lately that your hands don’t look as youthful as you’d like? The great news is that you have several options to refresh their appearance. In fact, most skin-enhancing modalities you normally associate with facial treatments can be used to prevent and reverse hand wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Here’s a top list of proven procedures to help your hands look as beautiful as your complexion:

Fractional Resurfacing for Hand Wrinkles

When it comes to your hands, wrinkles you see are the static kind which means they’re not caused by muscle movement. Anti Wrinkle Injections won’t do much to soften these lines the same way it can relax your frown furrows or crow’s feet. The only way to improve the appearance of hand wrinkles is by removing damaged skin and stimulating collagen synthesis with procedures such as fractional resurfacing.

Fractional resurfacing is particularly suited for rejuvenating the backs of your hands. Since this area doesn’t have oil glands any trauma or injury can take much longer to heal than anywhere else on your body. Fractional devices deploy ablative and non-ablative radiofrequency energy in a grid-like pattern, leaving microscopic points of skin untouched. As a result downtime is minimal and patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately. This non-invasive treatment is effective for addressing hand wrinkles, poor skin texture and most types of photo damage. 

IPL Photorejuvenation for Dark Spots and Even Skin Tone

A common pigment complaint on the hands is age spots (some people call them liver spots). These can occur simultaneously with hand wrinkles and the best way to eradicate them is with IPL/BBL (Intense/BroadBand Light), also referred to as “Photofacial” treatments. The IPL/BBL emits multiple wavelengths, precisely targeting and removing most types of pigment from the skin.     

How does IPL/BBL work exactly? Some of the light is attracted by the brown pigment. Other wavelengths are absorbed by the red pigment. Both become vaporised in the process, setting in motion a powerful healing and regenerative response in the skin. After a series of three to six IPL/BBL sessions you can expect a dramatic improvement in skin tone, reduction in pigmentation and even hand wrinkles thanks to the collagen-stimulating effects of IPL/BBL energy.

Dermal Fillers to Restore Volume and Hide Hand Veins

As we age, loss of volume in the hands can make our veins and tendons appear more pronounced and accentuate fine lines and hand wrinkles. Most people assume that not much can be done to plump the skin in this area, mostly because not many options were available until recently. With the introduction of highly specialised soft tissue fillers this has changed. Most dermal fillers contain water-binding sugar molecules in a gel medium. When injected under the skin they mask the appearance of tendons, veins and hand wrinkles. Patients can finally have hands that match their overall rejuvenated appearance.

Don’t Forget the Hand Cream

Prevention is the best medicine. This applies to your hands too. Since the hands have thinner skin with less elasticity, it’s important to moisturise and protect them from the elements. Therefore your daily beauty routine should include a good hydrating hand cream, sunblock and anti-aging serum at night. 

If you’re bothered by mild pigmentation issues but you’re not quite ready for light therapies like IPL/BBL or Fractional Resurfacing (or you want a product to extend the results of these treatments) then ask your dermatologist about pigment reducing creams. They can even out your skin tone and prevent the dark spots from forming or getting worse. 


Cryolipolysis: Can fat effectively be removed without surgery?

Imagine finally being free from pesky and persistent lurking fat bulges, the kind responsible for muffin top, bingo wings and saddle bags. Having the confidence to wear the section of your wardrobe reserved for one day when…, feeling comfortable in your own body, being body happy.

If stubborn fat pockets are holding you back, cryolipolysis could help.

What Is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is at its most simple level a fat freezing technology. Fat cells are responsible for storing fat, the more fat cells you have, the more fat your body is able to store. Naturally fat cells may be naturally metabolised from your body, however this process takes time and while your body holds these fat cells, the areas they lurk will always be prone to holding fat.

Cryolipolysis is a permanent solution to this challenge. Fat cells are out of all the cells your body contains, overly sensitive to cold meaning the right temperature can selectively destroy them. We’ll discuss just how cold cryolipolysis treatments get very soon.

How Does Cryolipolysis Work?

If person A had 20 fat cells and person B had 40 fat cells, person B would always be more prone to gaining weight than person A. Having a larger number of fat cells makes it easier for your body to gain weight – cryolipolysis can help.

During a cryolipolysis treatment, for example CoolLipo the average temperature you will experience is -7oC . To apply cryolipolysis to selected areas, CoolLipo uses a cup shaped paddle which is placed onto a protective gel pad sitting on top of your target body area. The cup shaped paddle then applies vacuum to suck the target body area into direct contact with the cooling paddle.

After fat cells have been destroyed by cryolipolysis, your body naturally begins removal via lymphatic drainage. For as long as a healthy diet and lifestyle is maintained – cryolipolysis will show you long lasting results.

Cryolipolysis Side Effects

As a non-invasive, no downtime procedure cryolipolysis has minimal side effects. During treatment it’s highly likely you will experience a strong tingling directly after application of the cryolipolysis paddle – this is normal and rather than being painful at most could be described as uncomfortable. Helpfully cold has a numbing effect and therefore if you do find in treatment tingling uncomfortable, you will find sensations quickly subside.

After a cryolipolysis treatment is complete, some may experience bruising, redness or soreness contained with and around the chosen treatment area. All of these effects will resolve quickly and should not cause worry.

Cryolipolysis Results

The most important consideration of any aesthetic treatment is results – what are they and is the investment worth your time? Helpfully cryolipolysis treatments such as CoolLipo use a well proven technology – a reason why 9 out of 10 people see results from just 1 treatment.

Cryolipolysis results are visible in some from as little as a week however as your body’s natural drainage system is used to transport away dead fat cells, time is needed before you can enjoy seeing full benefits. Most patients find cryolipolysis results are noticeable within 2 to 7 weeks with full effects achieved within 3 to 4 months.

Cryolipolysis Treatment

The latest cryolipolysis treatment available today is known as CoolLipo – a treatment we offer here at Advanced Dermatology. Amnon-surgical solution for eliminating stubborn areas of fat for good.

MonaLisa Touch

MonaLisa Touch: How to Resolve Post Menopause Symptoms

MonaLisa Touch therapies are designed to provide a solution for taboo post menopause/post-partum symptoms. Vaginal dryness, vaginal burning, incontinence, vaginal itching and pain during intercourse are a handful of symptoms associated with a medical condition known as vaginal atrophy.

What Is Vaginal Atrophy?

The most common change in hormone balance post-menopause/post-partum is a decline of estrogen and it’s this particular change which is able to provoke the common symptoms of vaginal atrophy. A condition also often referred to as atrophic vaginitis.

Vaginal atrophy is characterised as the hormone initiated thinning and shrinkage of vaginal tissues. A change which in turn triggers inflammation of the vagina. What appear like small biological changes can have profound effects on a person’s life and wellbeing.

Only 4% of women recognise the symptoms of vaginal atrophy but over 75% of women with symptoms of vaginal atrophy experience a significant negative impact on their lives.

Does MonaLisa Touch Really Work?

MonaLisa Touch treatments are a scientifically supported therapy for the correction of vaginal disorders triggered by post-menopausal or post-partum hormone change. As a laser treatment MonaLisa Touch therapies are almost pain free and last less than 5 minutes. An outpatient’s procedure able to fit within life seamlessly.

Published studies conclude over 84% of women are satisfied with the results of MonaLisa Touch treatments reporting significant improvements in vaginal atrophy symptoms such as dryness, burning and itching.

MonaLisa Touch treatments are aimed at being a non-surgical solution with minimal to no recovery time – a treatment plan of 3 procedures is most recommended for significant benefits.

How Does MonaLisa Touch Work?

MonaLisa Touch treatments are a specific type of laser treatment known as vulvo-vaginal laser reshaping (V2LR). Therapies are aimed to both cure and prevent symptoms of vaginal atrophy.

The lasers used in MonaLisa Touch treatments work gently to ensure vaginal tissue is smoothly treated with manageable amounts of laser energy. Technically known as DOT therapy, MonaLisa Touch lasers apply non-continuous laser energy to a patient’s vaginal wall in small 200 micron dots. As laser energy is carefully controlled, MonaLisa Touch therapies are mostly reported as completely pain free.

After application of a MonaLisa Touch laser, a patient’s body naturally initiates tissue repair processes. A form of wound healing which is able to stimulate the production of several structural proteins including collagen. As collagen acts like the scaffolding to all skin and tissues, when collagen levels are boosted, skin and vaginal tissues may become tighter, firmer and younger in biology.

Is MonaLisa Touch Safe?

Fat Cavitation

Fat Cavitation – How to Get Rid of Stubborn Body Fat

Are you one of those people who only need to look at chocolate cake to pile on the kilos? Truth is until you reduce the number of fat cells you have, your body will be pre-dispositioned to hoarding and storing fat. The more fat cells you have the more efficient your body is at storing fat.

Which is your problem area? Your arms? Tummy? Thighs?

Fat cavitation can help. Fat cavitation is an effective treatment aimed at confronting the cause of stubborn body fat ultimately reducing the number of fat cells and therefore making it harder for your body to stockpile chocolate cake calories.

How Does Fat Cavitation Work?

Choose fat cavitation as the solution for your stubborn areas of body fat and you will be benefiting from a non-invasive, sound based therapy. Fat cavitation treatments use a type of sound wave called ultrasonic – a high energy, low frequency sound wave which is mostly un-hearable by humans.

Ultrasound procedures carried out during pregnancy use a very similar technology and in fact fat cavitation procedures look, feel and are performed almost identically.

When fat cells are exposed to ultrasonic energy of the right frequency, they become energised with heat and vibration ultimately absorbing enough energy to cause their destruction. Once fat cells expire your body is able to naturally flush them away using lymphatic drainage.

The Benefits

Fat cavitation treatments are able to not only reduce the number of fat cells your body carries, but also tighten skin in the areas left behind. A vitally important benefit for optimum results. All fat cavitation treatments can;

  • Tighten skin
