Spring is in the air and love is all around us! It’s time to throw away those winter woollies and expose those gorgeous curves. Sadly for most of us, it is also the ideal time to get the body into shape and get rid of the love handles and cellulite  that somehow latched onto us this winter!
The first signs are microscopic changes within the skin which only become visible after puberty as dimples or orange peel. It is also referred to as ‘hail damage’ by some nasty men as they don’t generally suffer from it. Men have less fat on their thighs and their outer skin is thicker, so it obscures the surplus fat below. The hormone oestrogen seems to initiate and aggravate cellulite and it plays a dominant role in the formation of cellulite. Our diet also contributes, as excessive amounts of fat, carbohydrates, salt or too little fibre can increase cellulite. Other causative factors such smoking, lack of exercise and even sitting or standing in a single position for a long time have been indicated in aggravating cellulite.
When embarking on achieving the perfect body, it is worth a visit to a Skin & Body Renewal clinic as they offer a five-in-one solution, called 3 D Body Renewal, to help sculpt a body that can rightfully be exposed. 3 D Body Renewal is a truly amazing package as it is a non-invasive treatment program that targets subcutaneous fat and intra abdominal fat to remove centimetres from the abdomen and if necessary also treats the love handles, hips and thighs. During the combination treatment, cellulite is also improved on. 3 D Body Renewal - a truly walk in- walk out combination treatment for resistant fat and cellulite. The best results are usually seen after 3 – 6 treatments, but a 3 - 4 month regime is recommended.
To kick-start your body’s remodelling program, Skin & Body Renewal’s professional team might recommend the Slender Wonder medical weight loss program. A weight loss of 8 – 15 kilograms can be expected within the first 6 weeks. Best results for a reduction of cellulite are achieved when a person is within their ideal weight range. (Most of us reading this article qualify for the Slender Wonder program, especially after months of inactivity in front of warm fires and lots of comfort food to counter the winter temperatures!). The Slender Wonder program  is an effective medical weight loss program that specifically addresses abnormal, exercise resistant fat. If you have, like most of us, battled for years to get rid of excess fat, now is the time to try this program.
The successful reduction of resistant fat is achieved through a combination of procedures. There is Lipodissolve which involves micro injections of lecithin , a mesotherapy solution, into the batwings under the arms to dissolve the resistant fat cells. Post the injection procedure a radiofrequency procedure which ranges from Tripollar and Velashape to Accent XL , tightens sagging skin and helps stimulate the production of collagen and aids excretion and metabolism of the fat released by the Lipodissolve procedure. In addition, Carboxytherapy improves circulation to the treated area and aids excretion of released fat.
Spring symbolises new beginnings. May this spring be the start of a new you… let technology remodel your body to look the way you always dreamed of!
