A new body - from the inside, out.
Spring promises new beginnings and energy for the year’s resolutions. In the industry of cosmetic dermatology, the season also increases interest in non-surgical body contouring. The multitude of devices surfacing on the market speak to patients’ general desire to stave off surgery and the most commonly asked questions are of these systems’ abilities and potential for results.
For patients considering such non-surgical interventions, we advise a comprehensive approach to weight management and fat reduction is most successful; it is important to focus equally on lifestyle longterm as on positive treatments results. As such, our Victoria practice, Cosmedica, pairs the longest researched high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) devices - UltraShape® and Liposonix® - with a customized program of Glisodin nutri-ceuticals - a new category of systemic supplements professionally designed to compliment body contouring treatments.
On an international platform, UltraShape® and Liposonix® have an extensive and long history of safety and success in countries all around the world. Here in North America, you have likely seen them reviewed and featured in various celebrity media including “O” - the Oprah Magazine and television talk shows such as Dr. Oz, The Doctors and Good Morning America.
Treatment efficacy has been proven on appropriate candidates following a professional consultation; those who are close to their goal weight with generally healthy diet and lifestyle habits are excellent candidates. While body contouring systems are not heralded as weight loss solutions, they can be extremely effective at reducing localized areas of unwanted fat such as on the abdomen, following pregnancy or weight loss, the love-handles, outer thighs, lower buttocks, etc. When patients have appropriate expectations, treatment satisfaction is beyond 90%.
When weight management is a concern, Glisodin detox and slimming formulas can help patients reach ideal treatment levels, maximize the overall outcome and maintain results over time. Glisodin is comprised of potent primary antioxidants for total body wellness and all-natural supporting botanicals to safely and surely prepare the body’s natural cleansing pathways for optimal fat clearance, to boost natural energy, control appetite, promote lean muscle mass and balance blood sugars.
