Body Thread Lift
A thread-lift, also known as feather lift surgery, is a delicate cosmetic surgery procedure to gently, lift sagging skin to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. If gravity has started to take its toll on your body, a thread lift may be a less invasive alternative to surgery lift to rejuvenate the body without the risks and downtime associated with surgery. The thread-lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted into the soft tissue of the body to lift and support sagging areas. It cannot offer the same results as original surgery would but is a good option for a more subtle natural look.
What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a convenient, less invasive alternative to traditional surgery, designed for people experiencing early signs of ageing. This innovative body lift procedure can be performed in just one or two hours. During a thread body lift, the medical professional inserts thin threads into the skin through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled to lift and smooth the skin.
Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can approve the look of their thread lift while the Doctor does the work. Once the threads are knotted, they become hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that results will be invisible.
Carboxytherapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Carbon Dioxide is the gas that gives carbonated beverages their “fizz.”
What are some clinical uses for carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is used for the treatment of dark under-eye circles, stretch-marks, cellulite reduction, and non-surgical fat sculpting on the face and the body.
What areas of the body can be treated with carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy can be used to treat the eyelids, face, neck, arms, stomach, buttocks, and legs.
What other benefits occur from carboxytherapy?
In addition to increasing oxygenated blood-flow to the region injected, carboxytherapy also increases connective tissue formation in the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
BTL Exilis™ Elite
Exilis offers a revolutionary non-invasive form of treatment for the reshaping of targeted fat deposits and for the reduction of wrinkles.
The Exilis treatment is safe for patients of all ages who are showing signs of ageing, are overweight or want to improve those problem areas that exercise, and diet have plateaued.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months. The only thing required to prepare your body for treatments is proper hydration. You will be asked to drink plenty of water the day before, the day of and the day after treatment. Our office recommends drinking half your body weight in ounces. This will help rid your body of excess fluid and toxins and aid in metabolic processes.
Exilis, based on breakthrough technology, safely and effectively delivers thermal energy below the surface of the skin, where connective tissue is naturally produced. In response to this radiofrequency energy, connective tissue production is promoted, leading to the rejuvenation of the skin and a decrease in drooping jowls, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone. Exilis is predictable and consistent in its results and delivers younger, more vibrant skin after just one non-invasive treatment.
Exilis is a new type of radiofrequency device that reduces facial wrinkles and unwanted pockets of body fat. It’s a great non-invasive alternative to surgical liposuction. Its results aren’t as dramatic as liposuction, but it’s a much safer and easier procedure for people who want to rejuvenate and re-contour their bodies.
VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well-shaped body in typically 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
Which areas can be treated with VelaShape?
Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under the chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank, and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.
Is VelaShape treatment right for me?
VelaShape is not a weight-loss treatment. VelaShape uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30.
