What can I expect after the Fat freezing?
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 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
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?
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.
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.
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:
Breast (in men) “man boobs”
What is fat dissolving?
AQUALYX®, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localized fat under the skin is a fat-dissolving treatment. It is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves the fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable. Fat-dissolving injections work by injecting into the subcutaneous layer of fat, breaking down the fat cells allowing them to pass through the lymphatic system.
Where can I have my injections?
Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections can be used to treat almost all small deposits of fat, but the most popular treatment areas include the:

There is a spectrum of efficacy with treatments for fat removal with surgical liposuction still remaining the gold standard for removal of fat, however many people are not interested in the downtime, expense or the surgical nature of this procedure.

5 Facts About Hand Rejuvenation
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
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!

EXCESSIVE SWEATING TREATMENT
About the excessive sweating treatment
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?
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.
