The sun’s out and so are sleeveless tops and summer dresses. This usually fills me with dread, but a recent and revolutionary skin tightening treatment at the Adonia Clinic in Maida Vale, has helped me where exercise and diet haven’t been able to. The talented Dr Ejikeme and her expert team at the clinic offer prescriptive skin-care routines as well as cosmetic treatments and the latest exciting gadget to grace their presences is the Ultraformer III. The perfect treatment for those hard to shift areas such as love handles, stubborn belly fat, double chins, bingo wings and post-pregnancy ‘mummy tummy’.
Aesthetician, Dr Ifeoma Ejikeme comments; “We have introduced Ultraformer III into the clinic for those looking for an effective solution to firm up the areas many patients find difficult to shift. Ultraformer III is a great skin tightening device that is comfortable to use on the face and the body with excellent results”.
According to research the reduction of fat in targeted areas is impossible through diet and exercise alone. This non-invasive treatment uses HIFU, (high-intensity focused ultrasound), technology to lift, tighten and contour specific areas. It does this by using a precision-per-shot pulse, which has been designed to remodel collagen, producing firmer skin. The treatment can also be used to lift the face, remove facial wrinkles, sagging skin or tighten areas of the body.
Ultraformer III delivers concentrated waves of ultrasound into multiple layers of the skin and body tissues, transferring temperatures of 65-75c into the targeted zones. Patients who have received treatment on the face and body report an improvement rate of over 95%, 4-12 weeks post-treatment. It’s not a painful process as the intensity can be adjusted according to your sensitivity levels. It feels a little like an elastic band being pinged on to your skin and leaves you slightly pink and tender afterwards, but this feeling soon dissipates.
I’ve had two treatments thus far (each three months apart) and have another one booked in for September. The difference is noticeable already and will apparently keep on improving over time. Not a quick fix but a sure and steady treatment that does what it says on the tin!
Prices start from £400 and 3-6 treatments are recommended.
