Summer is finally here! Doesn’t it feel like years ago since we last basked in the sun? It definitely does for all of us here at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic.

With our favourite season greeting us, we are quickly signing up for gym memberships and getting ourselves looking the way we want, ready for the summer outfits and the jet-setting to a beach overseas. If you are looking for the perfect summer body treatment to prepare you for looking (and feeling) amazing this summer, the big question could be ‘which one?’.

Looking to Reduce Body Fat?

With beach season here, many people will be looking to reduce those stubborn pockets of fat before donning their first swimming costume (or bikini) of the year. With so many different treatments available here at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic that can help you to reduce fat, it can be a challenge to decide which one is better for you.

For example, should you choose fat freezing, liposuction or Aqualyx fat removal? All of these procedures work incredibly well, but you may prefer one over the other. It’s all about meeting your needs and requirements.

Fat freezing is perfect for anyone seeking to treat areas such as the abdomen, flanks, male breasts, bingo wings, saddlebags, inner thigs, and love handles. The results are also permanent, as long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.

Liposuction has been around for a long time and offers fantastic results; however, it may not be suited for everyone. It requires good skin elasticity and patients need to be active and healthy, of average or near average weight. In essence, it’s required that anyone looking to qualify for liposuction should be  within 10-15% of their ideal weight.

As for Aqualyx, this treatment is great for the whole body, from jawlines to thighs and knees. If you opt for this procedure, it is important that you continue to maintain a strict and healthy diet, to prevent fat storage in other parts of the body.

Just like with all treatments, it’s crucial that you choose the right one for you in order to see the best results! For more fat removal treatments, don’t hesitate to talk to us.

Wanting to Get a Healthy Glow?

Summer is the time of year when people don’t want to wear layers and layers of clothing. However, if you don’t feel confident about showing some skin, it can be a challenge. If you’re looking to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles or just get a healthier glow in time for beach season, we can help! So, which treatment is best suited for you and your skin?

Botox is a great option if you want to correct facial lines and wrinkles and can also help with certain medical issues such as excessive sweating – another reason why this procedure may be the right option for you this summer! While Botox has an extensive medical record and is usually safe for everyone, it is recommended that you avoid it if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

Another popular choice among people wanting to rejuvenate their skin is dermal fillers. This treatment smooths the appearance of deep grooves and facial wrinkles and enhances features so, if you’re looking to restore some volume to your face, this may be a great choice for you. There’s no downtime, so you can return to your normal activities immediately.

If you’re taking aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, you may have to wait until you stop, as they can lead to increased bleeding and bruising.

Skin tightening is also a popular treatment, especially for summer. This is because this procedure can help to improve skin laxity, as well as wrinkles, and contribute to the rejuvenation of the skin. When it comes to skin tightening, you have several different options at your disposal if you opt for the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, like Thermage CPT Face and Body and Intracel.

These treatments aim to give you tighter skin and give it a youthful glow, which is perfect if you’re planning on heading to the beach soon! We’re always on hand to help you choose the right procedures for you, so please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
