The results offered are noticeable and long-lasting. It is an FDA and TGA approved beauty procedure which works well for both men and women. A fat freezing machine with an applicator is used to treat the areas of unwanted fat. The applicator is customisable according to size, shape and pinchability of the fat. The device uses suction to pull in the fold of the skin and transmits low temperature enough to freeze the fat cells but do not harm the other tissues and muscles. The body’s natural process eliminates the dead cells leaving a more sculptured look. Cool sculpting can reduce fat in the abdominal area, inner thighs, chin, flank known as love handles or muffin top, outer legs and upper arms. A point to be noted here is that the results obtained by cool sculpting are noticeable but subtle meaning that the procedure is used for body contouring rather than a significant fat loss.

The light emitted is absorbed by the melanin in the hair which travels down the shaft into the follicles getting converted into heat to destroy the hair in a few treatment sessions. IPL hair removal initially worked on people with light skin and dark hair, but with the advancement in technology, it is now suitable for all skin and hair types. The procedure is a safe way to eliminate unwanted hair, however, a patient feels like a rubber band snapping the skin.

- HIFU Facelift

The area beneath the skin surface is targeted with focused ultrasound energy using the temperature right enough to support collagen regeneration. The energy is applied through an applicator aimed at different depths affecting three layers, muscles, skin and superficial wrinkles. It is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging allowing the aesthetician to see the layers of tissue ensuring energy is deposited precisely where it will be most effective. Ultrasound gel is applied to the cleansed skin and then the handpiece is used to deposit the ultrasound energy beneath the skin creating thermal coagulation with no damage to the surface skin. HIFU facelift process stimulates collagen synthesis and regeneration and thus providing long-term lifting and tightening effect. A full-face treatment takes an hour to complete without any downtime with results being instant. However, ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months as tired collagen is replaced with new one.
