Why Choose the New Year to Start Your Fat Loss Journey?

The phrase “new year, new me” springs to mind when we talk about getting in shape in January, and there’s an excellent reason for this. Many of us see the new year as a fresh start – the change in date helps us recharge and restart. So we plan our new years’ resolutions, like giving up chocolate, drinking more water, or signing up to the gym — we base many of our resolutions around losing weight.

This is often down to the fact that December is filled with sweet treats, hearty meals, alcohol, and little or no time to exercise. As enjoyable as it is, after a month of unhealthy habits, it’s understandable to want to make a change come January.


Why Should You Plan Ahead?

Although we haven’t yet reached the new year, it’s a good idea to start planning and decide what you would like to achieve next month.

We recommend noting down your current weight and measurements and which numbers you would like to see decreasing. The next step is to decide how you’re going to achieve this. Do you need to work on your diet? Is exercising your priority? What about a non-surgical fat removal treatment?

Whatever it is you decide, it’s much better to begin planning now rather than in the new year, so you have a clear idea of what you want and how you’re going to get there.

Share The Journey with Friends and Family

Losing weight can be a daunting experience, which can be made much worse when you go through the process alone. It can also be an embarrassing topic to discuss, but you might be surprised about how many people think the same things around this time of year.

Before starting your weight loss journey, why not team up with family or friends to help you along the way? When you share your goals with others, they can help you stay on track and vice versa, meaning you’re less likely to fall off or feel unmotivated. Additionally, we are more than happy for you to bring a supportive friend along to your appointments here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic.


Diet and Exercise

These are the two words many of us dread to hear around the Christmas period, and it’s no surprise why. Treats are surrounding us in December, and they’re almost impossible to avoid. That is why January is the perfect time to begin looking at what you eat and the amount of exercise you do. By this point, we’ve had one too many mince pies and have indulged in weekends on the couch watching the Christmas classics for far too long.

Whether you choose to hire a personal trainer and nutritionist to help you plan out your new lifestyle or create a rough guide yourself, having a plan in place for what you eat and how you workout is guaranteed to help you get in shape. Depending on your preferences and goals, you can prep meals in advance and decide the best times to go for a run or weight train at the gym.


Should You Consider Fat Loss Treatments?

If you have specific problem areas that you have tried to get rid of through diet and exercise in the past, you could consider fat loss treatments. They are great for those wanting to target specific areas of their body quickly and without the downtime of weight loss surgery. For almost instant results, a professional and discreet experience, and an incredible range of award-winning medical professionals, choose Aesthetic Skin Clinic for your fat loss treatments. Let’s take a look at what we can offer you.

Aqualyx Fat Removal

Previously, fat removal treatments were limited to surgical procedures, but with new and innovative technologies and methods, we can now offer a range of non-surgical treatments here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic. Aqualyx Fat Removal is available in our Jersey, Guernsey, and Belfast clinics and is an injection treatment designed to target unwanted fat in problem areas.

A fat-dissolving solution is injected via a cannula and spread out evenly, breaking down stubborn fat and allowing your body to flush it out naturally. Typically, you will require 3-5 sessions to achieve your goals, but we will create a bespoke plan for you during your consultation to help you better understand how your treatment will line up with your goals.


Fat Freezing

Our Fat Freezing treatments in Jersey, Guernsey, and Belfast work by cooling unwanted fat cells to trigger cell death. Those wanting to appear more contoured and muscle defined favour this treatment as it works better for those who are not overweight and just wish to remove smaller areas of fat such as on the tummy or inner thighs.

It’s important to note that our fat removal treatments are only as good as the maintenance, so you must continue to live a healthy lifestyle from the new year and beyond to keep up their results.


How Aesthetic Skin Clinic Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

Our non-surgical fat removal treatments are a fantastic choice for those wanting to say goodbye to their unwanted fat without any incisions or downtime. Perfect for targeting specific areas of fat that are difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone.

Aesthetic Skin Clinic’s team of experienced medical professionals will talk you through the process from your discreet consultation all the way through to your aftercare and will do everything they can do to make you feel comfortable and at ease about your treatment.

If Aqualyx Fat Removal in Belfast, Jersey, or Guernsey, or Fat Freezing in our skin clinics sound like something you are considering to help you get in shape in 2022, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team today.
