Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre shares with us their latest beauty treatment available just last weekend. They are a beauty medical center specialized in cosmetic surgery, hair transplant, aesthetic medicine (non-surgical and laser treatments) and healthy aging (wellness and cell therapy).
Dr Karen Po, who is the Consultant Aesthetic Physician of Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre who is very passionate on aesthetic medicine especially after her eldest daughter was born with cafe-au-lait birthmark on her face. She also shared with us treatments such as Thermage Total Tip 3.0, Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 and Liposonix.
- Thermage Total Tip 3.0
Thermage treatment has been around for quite a while and this treatment has been improved to be highly effective for face, neck and body for smoother, tighter and redefined skin also softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It uses radiofrequency technology that delivers safe heat deep into our skin to stimulate collagen.
- Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927
Its a laser treatment to resurface skin targeted on skin surface and deeper layers. It is recommended for age spots, sun spots, freckles, acne cars, pigmentation and wrinkles. The numbers are two unique codes, 1550 helps to penetrate deep into the skin and 1927 targets to tone and other signs of aging.
A non-surgical fat reduction procedure targeting around your waistline with little to no downtime or aftercare. It uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to bust stubborn fats that stays on even after the effort of dieting and exercising. Let’s get deeper into this!
Liposonix system helps to breakdown fat cells under our skin, as deep as 1.3cm. Above is the crystal that shows the depth of the system when the treatment is done. Once the fat breaks up, it will be flushed out through our body lymphatic system. However, do not mistaken that Liposonix can be replace as a liposuction or surgical treatment but it is a quick, easy and safe treatment to lose that last inch to achieve the body shape that you always long for.
The ideal candidate for Liposonix must be able to ‘pinch-an-inch’ on targeted area, have a body mass index (BMI) equal or less than 30, healthy and have realistic expectation on the results. As seen above, Dr Karen demonstrates to us ‘pinch-an-inch’ has to be done with patient standing straight, then she does marking on the targeted area as a guide during the treatment. Water is sprayed on the skin to be the conductor of the treatment. Once the device is removed, patients will feel mild swelling, redness and discomfort.
Here is how the Liposonix machine looks like and uses the handpiece device to place and treat targeted areas. Results can be vary depending on individuals, it can be seen within 8 to 12 weeks and on average, an hour duration of treatment shows the result of waist reduction of 1 inch, about one size smaller.
Everybody gets to feel the treatment and I never miss that chance. Dr Karen mentioned I didn’t qualify for the ‘pinch-an-inch’ but it still can be done on my back upper hip. Dr Karen and the nurses had to pinch and push my fats together before placing the handpiece. I could instantly feel a significant prickling effect and the pain is bearable. However, the level of pain is depends on individual’s endurance. For me, the pain didn’t last once I have exited from the treatment room.
