Whether it’s loose skin, wrinkles, fine lines or unwanted fat pockets, doctors are using state-of-the-art scientific breakthroughs in non-invasive cosmetic treatments to help you achieve your goals. Non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedures work by creating controlled damage that kickstarts fat loss, skin rejuvenation or skin tightening.
Non-Invasive Fat Removal
Non-surgical fat removal procedures like Zerona and CoolSculpting are gaining in popularity, due to the fact that they provide patients non-invasive or minimally invasive body contouring alternatives to liposuction. Dr Saras & Co non surgical fat reduction treatments use a range of different modalities to target and eliminate unwanted fat pockets.
Zerona employs cold laser technology to soften fat and allows the fat to be eliminated safely. Zerona is especially effective for removing fat from the thighs, waist and hips. Zerona does not require anaesthesia because there is no pain involved with this treatment. No bandages are necessary, and there is typically zero downtime or unpleasant side effects.
CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing device that initially passed FDA clearance for the abdomen, but a new handheld piece is helping it make the rounds for use under the chin as well. Through controlled cooling of the targeted areas, CoolSculpting is a fantastic way to eliminate fat. These chilled fat cells are then metabolised by your body and naturally removed weeks later.
Radio frequency devices are excellent solutions for restoring sagging skin and tightening tissue. This energy enters the epidermis, creating collagen contraction and new collagen produces while leaving the skin’s outer layer unharmed.
ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight are both radio frequency devices that treat sagging skin. ThermiSmooth has a handpiece that’s placed on the surface to heat the underlying tissues and prompt skin tightening and collagen production. ThermiTight uses a tiny probe that goes underneath the skin to heat the underlying components. This treatment is not non-invasive, rather minimally invasive.
Ultrasound treatments place ultrasonic energy in the deep layers of the epidermis. This non-invasive and non-surgical procedure goes past the surface of the skin to deliver energy at precise temperatures and depths, stimulating a healing response beneath the skin.
Ulthera is perfect for tightening and lifting the jawline, brow and neck. The skin is marked, and then ultrasound gel is applied, your specialist can see underneath your skin on a screen and stimulate certain areas with precise directed thermal bursts. The thermal bursts will not cause any damage to your skin. Rather, they only reach the deep layers of your skin for controlled damage, prompting new collagen growth to tighten and lift the skin. Most patients see results around the three-month mark, but results vary from patient to patient.
