When you look in the mirror and notice your side profile has a definite bulge around the middle or you can’t squeeze into the jeans you fitted snugly in last summer, then maybe it is time to consider belly fat reduction. However, for many of us, we already have considered it at length and put the hard work in but the stubborn fat around our middle just won’t shift.
In our current western culture, we are bombarded continuously with advertising and documentaries about fad diets and eating correctly. From the 5:2 to the Keto, the flexitarian to the Mediterranean diet, we are all slightly obsessed with diets to the extent that the estimated value of the UK diet industry last year was a whopping £2billion! Add to that the £5billion spent per year in the UK fitness industry and there is overwhelming evidence that many of us are giving our diet and fitness levels a fighting chance.
So, you have done the crunches, pounded your obliques, and lived on celery juice for weeks but the stubborn pocket of belly fat just won’t go; maybe it’s time to consider cryolipolysis to achieve the belly fat reduction you have been working so hard to attain.
Belly Fat Reduction With Coolsculpting
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure uses a controlled cooling system to eliminate stubborn fat that is so difficult to shift with diet and exercise alone. The innovative technology delivers precisely controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin, while the skin itself remains unaffected. CoolSculpting is totally non-invasive; it doesn’t use needles, and there is minimal downtime after treatment. The treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), and then over time your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells.
As you would expect, the CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly. However, though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, or mild pinching.
Belly Fat Reduction And Skin Tightening
Once you have completed your CoolSculpting treatments you may notice you have a little skin laxity that is common with ageing and rapid weight loss, as losing weight rapidly doesn’t give our skin adequate time to gradually contract and this results in loose skin. Our skin has a finite elasticity, and if pushed beyond the limit of that elasticity upon weight gain, the skin cannot fully contract back down upon subsequent weight loss.
At PHI Clinic, a skin tightening procedure following cryolipolysis is phenomenally popular with many of our patients, in fact, PHI Clinic houses one of the largest collections of treatments for the body and face in London. This gives us the opportunity to tailor our technologies to the patient, offering only what we believe will provide the best results for them.
BT Exilis Following Belly Fat Reduction
BTL Exilis is a non-surgical option to help tighten slight skin sagging. Using radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound, the Exilis heats the affected area to stimulate fat lipolysis which then helps to tighten the skin. The RF pulses act to reduce the volume of fat cells and accelerate collagen production, which firms the skin, and improves the skin’s texture, leaving the skin tightened and toned and looking more youthful.
