If like us, the recent sunshine has got you thinking about festivals, summer soirees and hitting the beach, you’ll be looking forward to shaking off the layers and saying hello to your summer wardrobe. Everyone wants to feel good in their skin and an extra confidence boost can make all the difference. We headed down to SB Aesthetic Clinic for the 90-minute slimming pamper package followed by a collagen wave facial. While we were there we got the lowdown on the latest non-invasive treatments to have you feeling body-beautiful in time for summer.

90-minute slimming pamper package

The pamper package started with a 30-minute session of lipo-cavitation using the Lipo Angel Plus, a treatment that aims to break down fat using ultrasonic waves. The therapist applied a clear water-based gel before massaging the wand around my stomach and hips. This was followed by a session of dry body brushing to exfoliate the skin and really get things moving! A thick layer of coconut oil was then massaged into my skin, before I was cocooned in the body wrap for 45 minutes. The heat created by the wrap helps to eliminate toxins naturally from the body and the nourishing oil leaves skin velvety-smooth. As the body wrap worked its magic I was treated to a cleansing facial. Bliss!

Ultrasound Cavitation Body Contouring Treatment. Body Care.

Lipo-cavitation, feeling those good vibrations

Lipo-cavitation aims to target and break down fat cells using ultrasonic waves. The idea is that as the fat cell membranes are damaged, fatty substances are released which can help areas like hips and thighs appear more contoured. After each treatment it’s important to drink lots of water and avoid alcohol to help flush things out. During the week after, the body processes the excess triglycerides and fatty substances through normal physiological processes. At least 10 to 20 weekly sessions are recommended for desired results.

Laser Lipo, what’s it all about?

Another treatment on offer is laser lipo, which uses heat from lasers at various wavelengths and pads applied to the skin in an aim to melt down body fat. The treatment works on the basis that as fat cell membranes become porous and spongy during treatments, it’s easy for the contents to escape. A minimum of six treatments are required, spaced approximately 48 hours apart for best results.

What’s the difference between Laser Lipo and Lipo-cavitation?

Put simply, both are techniques for spot fat reduction but one uses heat from lasers and the other uses ultrasonic technology to create the desired effect. Both have a contouring effect for a smoother, more toned appearance, perfect for thighs, buttocks and the abdomen.

Ride the wave: Collagen Wave Therapy

Fancy keeping your face in shape as well as your body? A collagen wave facial is the non-invasive alternative to Botox. Radio frequency has the ability to heat up deep layers of the skin and underlying tissue, this improves the existing collagen and promotes new collagen production to further tighten the skin, resulting in smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. After not knowing what to expect I was pleasantly surprised by how relaxing the experience was! Before the facial, a cooling gel was applied and the therapist selected the desired heat setting. As she gently massaged the wand around my face I could feel the treatment working its magic and after just one session my skin appeared tighter and glowing!
