From time to time most of us have looked in the mirror and prodded a part of ourselves we’re not happy with.
Recent research suggests that women are most critical about their stomachs and thighs, disliking the shapeless areas. If you admire celebrities like Cara Delevingne, Millie Mackintosh and Cheryl Cole with their defined thighs and tight tums, there is an answer – and it’s called body contouring.
Contouring the body can be achieved surgically by going under the knife, but these days there are some truly remarkable non-surgical treatments available that can help reduce fat and contour problem areas at the same time.
With no downtime, little to no pain, and no scarring, why spend three times as much on surgery when you can get fantastic results from energy-assisted device that can re-shape your body in a matter of four sessions, over four weeks?
At Parmar Aesthetics, the importance of scalpel-free treatments means they offer some of the best aesthetic treatments in the UK, including the Vanquish. Being one of the first London clinics to acquire the Vanquish body contouring device means Dr Mitesh Parmar has the experience and technique to make sure your fat reduction treatment is simple and effective.
So what actually is the Vanquish and what does it offer patients which pockets of stubborn fat?
Dr Parmar says it’s all about the unique contactless technology, which allows fast, pain free treatment and results that will WOW you.
“Body contouring is something I take very seriously. I was one of the first practitioners on Harley Street to invest in this revolutionary fat reduction system, and I’ve never looked back,” he explains.
“The treatment times are minimal, the areas I’m able to treat are bigger than any offered by other devices, and the results are both natural and impressive.
“Re-shaping the body doesn’t have to require time off work, and we can achieve remarkable results in a short space of time. Just 4 sessions of 30 minutes can make a huge difference to the size and shape of the area.”
A relatively new non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency waves to kill fat cells without killing the skin or damaging the muscle, it has been labelled a ‘breakthrough’ by cosmetic experts as it’s the only non-contact device available in the UK currently.
It seems the buzz around fat reduction using radiofrequency is growing as Vanquish was featured on a high profile American TV show last month. Several experts teamed up on ‘The Doctors’ to talk about the latest radio frequency body contouring device to hit the UK.
Dr Parmar says he believes the worldwide interest in Vanquish is all due to its unique technology.
“I’m pleased to see the device is proving popular across the world, as in the UK we’ve seen some truly remarkable body contouring results. It’s the combination of quick and painless treatments and unrivalled levels of fat reduction for patients that make it unique,” he says.
Because the Vanquish is responsive to the body, it doesn’t hurt or damage the skin. While it’s not an entirely suitable substitute for diet and exercise, it’s great for people who are working out and trying to change their body shape, but still have stubborn areas of fat – particularly around their tummy.
The stomach is known for being a tricky area to tone, with fat pockets hiding the muscles from the surface of the tummy, and the Vanquish can help reduce the fatty deposits and even tighten the skin.
The result is a contoured, flatter stomach – but Dr Parmar is keen to point out this treatment also work on the thighs and flanks.
“While the Vanquish is unquestionably effective for giving patient’s a flatter belly, the device is also used to reduce the fat and contour the thighs. It’s also producing some extremely good results on love handles, a problem for many men and women, regardless of how much exercise they do,” he concludes.
