Hyperhydrosis

Hyperhydrosis  as a treatment-Botox is injected into the skin areas of the body affected and reduces the sweating in this area by blocking the signals from the brain to the sweat glands.

Anti-ageing supplements

Anti-aging supplements protect cells from damage caused by organic compounds called free radicals. Examples include beta-carotene, vitamin C, selenium, vitamin E, lycopene and resveratrol.

Intravenous Nutrient Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream used to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies. Oral intake of such high doses is simply not possible due to absorption limitations from the digestive process.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Body Wrap

Shrinking Violet body wrap is a revolutionary body treatment with instant inch loss results leaving the skin softer and smoother.  Unlike other wraps that use dehydration and water loss to obtain results, Shrinking Violet is clinically proven to work by Lipolysis and is non invasive and pain free.

Waxing

Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair. Stripless wax is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin.

IPL Permanent Hair Reduction

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal, photo rejuvenation (e.g. the treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage, and thread veins) as well as to alleviate dermatologic diseases.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.

Swedish Massage – Full Body

Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. It’s the foundation for other types of massage, including sports massage, deep tissue massage and aromatherapy massage, and is based on the concepts of anatomy and physiology.

Procedure: The treatment freezes and crystallises treated fat cells. These fat cells are then naturally passed through the body, enabling you to lose the desired inches! Treatments last around 1 hour, depending on the number of areas being treated, and you can expect to feel little to no discomfort. Initially the treated area will warm slightly for the first few minutes. After this, the cooling process begins and you will feel some pressure and intense cold. Most clients report a numbing feeling after the first few minutes, meaning they simply don’t feel the intense cold that follows.

After your treatment: As the treatment is non-surgical, you can typically return to normal activities immediately. Some clients experience redness and minor bruising or discomfort, but this is temporary and soon dissipates. In the weeks and months to follow, your body will begin to naturally process and eliminate the treated fat cells. Additionally, as long as you endeavour to live a good lifestyle after your treatment, the fat will stay permanently eliminated! You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, yet the most dramatic results will be seen between 8-12 weeks after treatment, a short time to wait for amazing results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need?

Your Clinician at Barbara Pointon Facial Aesthetics and Beauty  will help you create a personal treatment plan that is tailored to your specific goals. Most individuals only require 1-2 treatments to achieve their desired results, but as every individual is unique, you and your clinician can review your progress and schedule additional treatments if necessary.

What is the difference between fat reduction and weight loss?

Contrary to popular belief, weight loss and fat reduction are not the same thing. When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells we have remains the same. This means that if we gain weight again, those fat cells will become larger. The Cryolipolysus treatment on the other hand serves to reduce the number of fat cells in the treated areas. If the fat cells aren’t there, they cannot get bigger! Unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical procedures, the fat freezing treatment is longer lasting as, once the fat cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good!

Am I a suitable candidate?

2 stone or less to lose? This is the perfect treatment for you! The treatment is designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, Cryolipolysus is not a weight loss solution for obesity. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas that they wish to rid, such as stubborn stomach fat, muffin tops, bingo wings and turkey necks. If you still aren’t sure if the treatment is right for you, you can request a free consultation with our aesthetic clinician to determine whether the treatment is right for you.

Is the procedure safe?

With over one million fat freezing  procedures worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects can include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and on some occasions for very few, pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The Cryolipolysus procedure is not for everyone and you should not have this procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if this procedure is right for you.

Will I need a special diet, exercise regime or any supplements to aid aftercare?

No new diets, exercises or supplements are required. However, many clients feel more motivated to take better care of themselves after their treatment.

What happens if I gain weight?

Many clients tend to take better care of their bodies post-treatment. However, if you do gain weight, you are more likely to gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.

How much does it cost?

The price of a Cryolipolysus treatment depends on the number of areas being treated and your end goal. As said above, you and your clinician can devise a personal treatment plan to suit you.
