The skinny on fat.
May 25th, 2011
Adonis may disagree but we find the average human form to be perfectly imperfect; we all have an area or two (or three) we wish we could resolve with the ease of Photoshop – a brush stroke here and an eraser there. In Victoria, BC, patients often seek alternatives to surgical liposuction preferring less invasive treatments so as not to take time away from their active lives and families. As such, Cosmedica has evolved a comprehensive body contouring division to target the most common body concerns: unwanted fat, cellulite, lax skin and weight management.
We are all born with a finite number of fat cells that grow and shrink with the onset or loss of body mass. Diet, activity and certain metabolic or physiological conditions may all contribute to the gaining or losing of weight (common knowledge). Lifestyle is generally the first to be overhauled when one desires to improve their BMI and shape up but, still, localized fat like that common around tummies, thighs and bottoms can resist your best efforts. At the point of a <30 BMI, most patients qualify for non-invasive body contouring at Cosmedica in Victoria, BC.
Cosmedica takes a comprehensive look at non-invasive body contouring. We tailor effective technologies and products for a unique, individualized program. Patients may benefit from high intensity focused ultrasound systems like LipoSonix™ or UltraShape™ for fat reduction around the abdomen, flanks, buttocks and thighs as well as for gentle skin tightening. Thermage® is indicated for cellulite and lax skin on the arms, tummy, buttocks or even the legs. Cosmedica offers the latest Thermage® technology, Thermage® CPT, with an integrated vibrating treatment head for maximum patient comfort and increased power. The result: over 90% patient satisfaction. While these non-invasive, no-downtime procedures are not quite competitors to the results of surgical options, they are highly effective alternatives for those who desire noticeable improvement without the inherent risks of surgery or anesthesia.
Patients may maximize results of body contouring procedures and manage weight in the long term with GliSODin Skin Nutrients – a revolutionary, all natural and Canadian-made line of supplements for detoxification and slimming. The Advanced Detoxification formula eliminates toxins and cleanses and protects the liver to effectively prepare the body for weight loss. Potent concentrations of primary antioxidants also neutralize free-radicals and promote total body wellness as well as clearer, smoother skin. The Advanced Slimming Formula assists with healthy weight management by promoting lean muscle mass and balanced blood sugars. With integrated digestion aids, appetite is satisfied longer and bloating is minimized. The Advanced Slimming Formula may be taken as an ongoing weight management supplement safely, without the risks associated with diet/energy pills to maximize overall health.
