FAT FREEZING

What can I expect after the Fat freezing?
Fat freezing is a non-surgical treatment for the long-lasting removal of fat cells, a bit like liposuction but just without the surgery. Like liposuction, it only requires a single treatment session. It does not require compression garments post treatment and you can go back to your normal day to day activity straight after treatment.
After the treatment, the device is removed leaving a hard lump of frozen fat. For best results, this is then vigorously massaged until all the fat is broken down.
At this stage the skin will look red, this is just from the cooling sensation and normal colour will return within an hour.
The treatment also freezes the ends of some of the sensory nerves so the skin will be numb for 8-14 days post treatment- this will always full recovery. When the sensation is recovering it is common to experience a prickling sensation across the treated area.
During the next few weeks, some of our patients have reported that the area can feel a little swollen and trousers can feel a little tighter than normal. This is due to the bodies response to the frozen fat cells and a temporary increase in lymph in this area as the fat is removed.
Does the fat come back?
If you maintain a stable weight the fat cells will not come back. However if you put over 10% of your weight it is possible to get new fat cell development.
If you weigh 70kg at the treatment the fat will not return to those areas unless you start getting up to 77-78kg and then there is a risk of new fat cell development. Stay within 5% and this will not happen.
Ideal candidates for fat freezing
If you are at a stable weight but have a pocket of fat that refuses to go
There is not too much loose skin the area being treated.
You are able to grab the fat, the mesenteric fat is the fat that is inside the muscle wall is not an area that can be treated.
You do not want the downtime and need to wear compression garments with liposuction treatments.
What is a session of a treatment area?
Like any lipo-sculpting treatment we are able to treat multiple different areas, some commonly treated areas:

Lower tummy/ abdomen:
This is probably the most common area to treat in men and also very popular in women. A treatment in this area normally takes 2-3 hours to treat.
Upper abdomen:
Also a very common area to treat and similarly to the lower abdomen is usually 2-3 hours to treat.
To treat the abdomen as a guide is usually between 3-6 hours is all been done at a single treatment session.

Flanks/ love handles/ muffin top:
Another very common treatment area requiring 2-4 hours on average to treat.

Inner thighs:
Coolsculpting works very well with inner thighs however it is technically a more difficult region to treat.
Although a generalised flattening of the lower and upper Abdo is beneficial we do not want to flatten the inner thighs. Our Doctors have a history in liposuction and so understand the importance of only removing certain fat.
It is not a case of removing as much fat as possible- it is actually the fat that is left behind is the most important fat.

Other common areas to treat:
Back
Breast (in men) “man boobs”

HAND REJUVENATION

About Hand Rejuvenation
Hand Rejuvenation helps replenish and restore the look of hands for a truly comprehensive approach to youth enhancement.
At Mi Vida Aesthetic Clinic , we use multiple approaches to help correct wrinkles, eliminate sagging, and add volume to hands with prominent wrinkles and veins. We also use laser treatments to remove sunspots and encourage skin tightening.

Restylane Skin boosters work by evenly distributing hyaluronic acid deep into the dermis, thereby replenishing lost collagen and elastin for total skin rejuvenation. Voluma is designed to hydrate and volumise the skin of hard-working hands, improving elasticity and appearance.
Your Aesthetic practitioner will also use IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments to eliminate the appearance of age spots. This non-invasive procedure triggers faster cellular turnover, meaning age spots and hyperpigmentation disappears sooner.

5 Facts About Hand Rejuvenation
1. Hands could reveal your true age.
If you’re focused on facial wrinkles and fine lines, you could be missing out on the biggest giveaway of your real age. Hands tend to wrinkle and lose youthful volume first, leading to wrinkles, prominent veins, and age spots. Hand rejuvenation counteracts these aging symptoms for a truly youthful appearance.
2. Hand rejuvenation uses a more natural approach.
Skin boosters use a hydrating form of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that encourages collagen and elastin production. Skin boosters also add instant volume, which improves the appearance of prominent veins.
3. IPL evens out texture and tone.
In addition to eliminate age spots and hyperpigmentation, IPL treatments can even out any rough and bumpy texture on your hands. The end result is smooth, hydrated, and youthful hands you’ll want to show off!
4. Hand rejuvenation is a rising trend.
Thanks to the combination of Skin boosters and IPL treatments, hand rejuvenation is quickly becoming one of the most popular requested procedures at Mi Vida Aesthetic Clinic.
5. Hand rejuvenation corrects wrinkles and volume loss.
If you want truly youthful hands, it’s important to focus on more than hand wrinkles and lines. Adding volume to your hands mimics a youthful appearance; additionally, it can minimise the appearance of prominent veins and tendons.

RADIESSE HAND REJUVENATION

About Radiesse Hand rejuvenation
Hand rejuvenation is a commonly requested treatment at Mi Vida aesthetic Clinic. This procedure is also known as the ‘Radiesse Hand Lift’. It is the ideal solution for patients concerned with the skin quality of their hands or their veiny appearance.

Frequently the focus of cosmetic improvement is the face, yet one of the most age-telling body features neglected are our hands. The skin on the back of the hands is extremely thin and loss of fat padding shows quickly. Take away this cushion and all the structures in the hand show up, the tendons, bones and the veins.

The natural fat cushion that we are born with begins to lessen in our late twenties and early 30′s. By the time most of us approach 50, we have hands that tell the truth about our age and often they can actually make us seem older than we are!

Areas of treatment
Radiesse can restore the volume on the back of the hands that have been lost due to the natural ageing process via a very simple and convenient procedure. The treatment is highly effective and non time-consuming. It also delivers long-lasting results.
Will It Work For Me?
Radiesse is safe, effective and extremely popular both for its immediate effectiveness and long duration. It can also be injected into the cheek and chin area to provide completely natural-looking facial sculpting.

EXCESSIVE SWEATING TREATMENT 

About the excessive sweating treatment
At Mi Vida aesthetic Clinic provides effective Botulinum toxin injections, to help reduce excessive sweating. This procedure is also known as hyperhidrosis treatment. All treatments are carried out by an experienced aesthetic practitioner .

When severe sweating gets in the way of daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a suitable candidate for the Botulinum toxin treatment.

Will It Work For Me?
The body areas that can be effected include: the underarms, palms, feet and forehead.

Botulinum toxin is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough. Botulinum toxin is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating settles.
