As our social media feeds are full of fitness inspiration, whether it’s avocado smothered Ryvitas or fitness instructors telling you their top tips on how to budge that extra weight for the perfect summer body. But what if this isn’t enough? What if we still have that stubborn pocket of fat at the end of all our hard work? The great news is we can turn to body sculpting.
The reason for stubborn areas of fat is due to the fact that fat cells are distributed across our body and one specific area may well have more fat cells than others, often as a result of our genetics rather than anything we have done. Therefore, when we diet and lose weight, it may seem that we lose from the areas of least concern and the areas we really want to sculpt appear to remain predominantly untouched.
Body Sculpting Treatments
While body sculpting is no new thing, the advancements in the technology used speak for themselves. PHI Clinic is proud to house a wide variety of non-surgical treatments which aim to treat a larger number of concerns and indications. But one of our most popular treatments is CoolSculpting® from Zeltiq. It implements cryolipolysis to freeze unwanted pockets of fat, making for a smoother, streamlined silhouette.
The benefits of having this treatment over traditional fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, is that it eliminates any need for incisions and anaesthetic. The patient experience is much more pleasurable overall, and there is limited downtime associated with the treatment.
Why Choose PHI for Body Sculpting?
PHI Clinic has some of the most highly trained clinicians in the UK to perform this treatment. The treatment itself is relatively pain-free, with just a slight strange sensation felt at the start of each cycle, as the area numbs. Afterwards, patients may experience some swelling, mild bruising, and redness. The area may be sensitive to the touch, but you are able to go about your usual activities and commitments after the procedure.
The clinic itself is located in London’s medical hub; Harley Street. Having been open for just over a year in this area, PHI is a state-of-the-art practice with over 40 lasers and non-surgical devices, a full list of practitioners, from doctors to surgeons, nurses to therapists. Together with a dedicated administrative team, we aim to ensure a pleasant, memorable experience (for all the right reasons).
