Three reasons why non-invasive body contouring triumphs surgical alternatives

When a significant amount of weight is lost. Whether through a surgical or a non-surgical weight reduction process. The skin and tissue that surround the body do not have the elasticity to respond to the reduced size, leaving the body looking deflated and out of shape.

For many people who strive to lose weight, this can be disheartening. Having worked to achieve their dream body or reach their optimum weight. Excess skin and tissue has left them feeling no less self-conscious.

That’s where body contouring comes in. A relatively new, quick and safe procedure. Body contouring is specifically designed to remove the excess skin and fat after weight loss. It can transform your body without having to undergo surgery. And the result is a more youthful appearance, with smoother, firmer contours.

Those who want to get rid of saddle bags but don’t wish to go under the knife. May consider non-invasive treatments instead, for the following three reasons.

Body contouring is safer than surgery

Unlike surgical treatments, such as traditional forms of liposuction. State-of-the-art body contouring machines can produce the same results, without the risks associated with cosmetic surgery.

Body contouring is a non-invasive and pain-free procedure. Which uses radio frequencies to achieve impressive results. The process will not cause scars, and patients will not be prone to infection after the procedure. In fact there are very few side effects at all.

Although huge steps have been made in the world of cosmetic surgery. Invasive treatments can still occasionally result in bigger problems, such as blot clots, bleeding problems and difficulty breathing in extreme cases.

If you are struggling to shift unwanted fat, yet reluctant to undergo surgery to achieve your dream body Body contouring may well be the treatment you’ve been looking for.

Body contouring is quicker than surgery

Body contouring is a simple walk in, walk out procedure. Clients leave with noticeable results on the same day. It is a quick and painless process, with immediately visible results.

Because body contouring is non-invasive. Patients enjoy a speedier recovery time than surgical treatments, with little to no downtime and minimal discomfort. You can show off your healthier, younger looking body in no time.

The quick and easy procedure can equally have a positive influence on the mind as well as the body. There is no ongoing pain, and it can quickly and significantly improve a patient’s self-esteem and confidence in their own body.

Body contouring is cheaper than surgery

Body contouring is better for both your body and your bank account. While the cost of cosmetic surgery is generally considered pretty steep, body contouring is widely considered the more affordable alternative.

The difference in cost between a surgical procedure and a non-invasive body contouring machine is vast. When you consider that the two treatments generally offer the same results. Add into the mix the speed and safety associated with non-invasive body contouring, and the choice is clear.

Get into shape with the best non surgical treatments central London available.

We’ve all got annoying lumps, bumps and sagging skin that stubbornly refuse to go no matter how many times we diet or visit the gym. There is a raft of non surgical treatments central London available, that can get you into great shape.

The Face and Body Clinic in Harley Street is at the forefront of these non-surgical therapies.

Beauty and well-being expert Shenaz Shariff has a client list that can testify the results are visible from the outset when it comes to:

  • Sculpting the body and reducing unwanted fat deposits.
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite
  • Contouring facial skin

So what are these non-surgical treatments and how do they work?

Tripollar Radio Frequency

The treatment area targeted by Controlled energy using three or more electrodes. Using sophisticated algorithms that prevent overheating and damage to the skin.

Targeted body treatments shrink fat cells in the hypodermis layer and accelerate collagen regeneration.

How can a non-surgical treatment like this be effective?

Elastic fibres in the skin, collagen and elastin are produced by fibroblasts. As they are heated they contract and collagen strands are pulled closer which immediately tightens the skin.

The deep heating effect accelerates fat cell metabolism causing them to shrink.

The rise in temperature forces the fat cells to secrete fatty acids (liquid fat), which are then disposed of via the blood and lymph system.

And for you that means fat and circumference reduction, younger looking skin and long-term skin re-modelling.

Depending on the size of the area being treated – a typical course of this type of non-surgical therapy at a central London clinic by Shenaz would consist of up to 8 sessions each taking between 20 and 40 minutes.

If you want to concentrate on wrinkles, fine lines, skin pigmentation and improving blemishes such as acne scars, then contact Shenaz for a consultation about a non-surgical treatment using Trifractional technology.

It can effectively re-surface the skin with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime.

Now for a bit of science!

Three pulses enable radio frequency energy to penetrate deep into the tissue without over-heating the target tissue.

  1. The first pulse makes pinpoint size spots on the epidermis.
  2. The next pulse penetrates into the skin heating the tissue.
  3. The third penetrates deepest, heating the mid-dermis.

The effect is to create micro wounds which then trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Helping collagen regeneration and creating healthy skin tissue. Like all non-surgical treatments carried out by Shenaz at her central London clinic, the therapies are painless.

Many therapies can work in combination.

It is essential that you have an expert consultation from someone like Shenaz Shariff.

Shenaz has vast experience in non-surgical treatments and is the central London clinic of choice when it comes to manufacturers show-casing their latest technology.

One innovation which will volumise your skin and lift sagging areas of the face without painful invasive surgery is Hybrid energy therapy. Which can work in conjuction with Trifractional technology.

This unique technology gives a tailored full-face treatment that will give you a natural look.

Even better it allows for on-going rejuvenation so the results are not only long lasting but enhanced over time.

How is this achieved?

Hybrid Energy combines two types of electrical energies which deliver Hot and Electrical Invisible Micro Ablation (IMA) to the skin via a series of micro pins.

Firstly Hot IMA penetrates the dermis, then the Electrical IMA creates micro-wounds while at the same time triggering a wound-healing effect.

Working in partnership it induces re-modelling of dermal collagen, elastin growth and increased production of Hyaluronic Acid.

It might sound a bit scary but:

  • It’s safe and clinically proven
  • Doesn’t require the introduction of foreign substances to the skin
  • Suits all skin types
  • Treats a wide range of aesthetic issues

The beauty of non-surgical treatments is that it is:

  • pain free.
  • causes minimal discomfort and downtime,
  • looks and feels great
  • continues working on your skin even after the sessions have finished.

Get a body to make you the envy of your friends without stepping foot in the gym.

Are you sick of reality show stars, supermodels and Hollywood celebs who seem to be able to slip into their skinny jeans as soon as they’ve given birth?

Or look great in a bikini despite claims they can’t resist chocolate and burgers?

Dynashape is a non-surgical treatment which is used exclusively at The Face and Body Clinic in Central London.

It doesn’t matter whether you are thin or overweight, cellulite is a fact of life for most post-pubertal women.

Over time the skin loses its thickness and this unfortunately enhances the visibility of unsightly cellulite bumps.

Expert practitioner Shenaz Shariff says: ‘It can be disheartening when, no matter how much you diet or exercise, stubborn areas of fat just won’t go”.

“I hear so many women feel like they just have to accept it and yet it eats into their confidence about how they feel about their body. ‘But at my central London clinic I can offer a non-surgical treatment that, unlike liposuction, is non-invasive’.

Dynashape uses ultrasound technology to break down fat and in effect melt it via a series of lenses that can be altered to target different depths.

non surgical treatments central LondonThe fat is eliminated, draining away via the body’s lymphatic system and ultimately leading to a slimmer figure. This non-surgical treatment is accompanied by an endodermic massage which activates cell membranes in the tissues. Removing fat cell and helping to drain fluid accumulation.

As Sonia, one of Shenaz’s clients admits: ‘I have always been self conscious about my stretchmarks and stubborn fat on my arms to the point that sleeveless tops didn’t feature in my wardrobe at all even in Saharan temperatures.

‘I was sceptical about Dynashape, it seemed to good to be true but I gave it a go and the results were spectacular.

I’ve got my self confidence back and am wearing the clothes I’ve always wanted without feeling the need to cover up’.

Even better the results are immediate. You will be amazed what a difference just one treatment of Dynashape will make. You can have slimmer thighs, tummies or upper arms.
It is pain free just like the other non-surgical treatments at this central London clinic.

Not only does Dynashape slim and re-shape your body, it:

  • Reduces cellulite
  • Improves skin elasticity and tone
  • Drains areas of fluid swelling
  • Improves blood circulation

Results are immediate, however a full course is recommended to get the body you want. Contact Shenaz Shariff for a consultation and make sure you are bikini ready whatever the time of year.

Exporex Mesotherapy

non surgical treatments central London

The success of this non-surgical treatment was highlighted on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Teenage Bodies. Shenaz was able to successfully help a teenager with a severe case of stretch marks at her central London clinic.

The secret of this treatment’s success is a process known as Isophoresis. Which requires electrical waves to be sent through a formula of nutrients – the individual ingredients are tailored to individual requirements. Depending on the results wanted – and pushed painlessly into the skin.

These electrical waves stimulate the lymphatic system to encourage the removal of toxins and the nutrients. Which can include vitamins, mineral and herbal concentrates, reverse the physiological effects of cellulite and stretch marks by promoting skin regeneration.

It can be used on all ages and combined with the right diet and exercise routine the results are long-lasting

Mesotherapy is widely used in Europe to treat various injuries and medical conditions. Using microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins and minerals and amino acids.

These tiny medicinal bullets are injected directly into the mesoderm ( middle layer of the skin) specific to the condition being treated.

The mesolift is a process which injects a combination of minerals and nutrients into the skin to promote production of collagen and elastin and stimulate your metabolism.

Skin ages, circulation decreases and the reduction in oxygen hinders your body’s ability to flush out toxins which in turn drives premature ageing and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.

After the treatment skin looks rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. An alternative to botox and topical creams and surgical facelifts.

Hair today, gone tomorrow

Unwanted hair is never attractive whether on your face or other parts of your body.

IPL hair removal is affordable, safe and quick, however you will require a consultation and test patch as unlike most non-surgical treatments it doesn’t work on every hair colour and skin type.

Developed 15 years ago. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology targets the pigment in the hair and destroys the hair follicle preventing future hair growth.

This non-invasive treatment which is available at the Face and Body Clinic in Central London. Each pulse of light might sting a little bit – like the snap of a rubber band against your skin.

The equipment used contains a cooling system that makes it more comfortable.

There might be slight redness and swelling after treatment which will last a few hours. Some people feel a slight sunburn type sensation but the discomfort is minimal.

Shenaz says the number of treatments can vary depending on the hair growth but at least 10 sessions should lead to complete hair removal. Followed by maintenance follow ups as advised.

Studies have shown an average 80 per cent hair loss after 8 treatments.

Botox or fillers. Which is the right one for you?

Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles which cause lines and wrinkles. It’s also used to treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating.

Botox is the best known brand and the safest having been certified by the medical and cosmetic industry.

Botox is injected into muscles and is used to improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows, and can also be used around the side of the eyes to improve severe crow’s feet.

As with other non-surgical treatments there’s no downtime, furthermore there’s no one rule fits all. Some patients may see slight bruising or swelling depending on their skin.

Results should last up to 6 months.

When we are born we have a plentiful supply of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body. As we age, our stores of it diminish so lines and wrinkles develop. Dermal fillers give a fresher appearance to the face by injecting naturally occurring HA through a tiny needle to targeted areas. It is fast and leaves no scars.

Dr Anil Budh Raja is a specialist in anti ageing injectable treatments. And is part of the team that works alongside Shenaz Shariff at the Face and Body Clinic in central London.

The procedure takes around 45 minutes and the subtle effects can last for up to 18 months.

Dr Raja also offers other non-surgical treatments for dermatological conditions like eczema, psoriasis and mole screening.

Facelift without the surgery

At the more extreme end of non-surgical treatments is a PDO Threadlift. PDO Threadlift redefines facial contours and can last up to 3 years depending on your lifestyle.

Used to treat upper and lower cheeks, foreheads, jawline and neck, local anaesthetic. PDO is injected into the treatment area and then the PDO thread is inserted using a micro needle – into the subcutaneous layer of the skin.

When the needle is taken out, the threads remain implanted and activates the skin’s regenerative process.

The procedure can take up to an hour.

By combining PDO with other non surgical treatments, great results can be achieved. The best candidates are men and women who are starting to see the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead or sagging in the mid and lower face. Or who have loose skin on the neck.

Shenaz Shariff offers this non-surgical treatment at her central London clinic.

Shenaz says: ‘PDO thread can be used on their own or combined with other treatments such as radiofrequency, fractional laser treatments or fillers to give optimal results to clients’.
