BODY SKIN SAGGING | BODY FAT | CELLULITE

Most people start noticing skin laxity (or sagging skin) as they age. Some may experience it sooner than others. Skin laxity and sagging skin can affect the face and body; however the body may also be burdened by unwanted hair and razor bumps, excess or stubborn fat and cellulite.

Despite diet, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle, many of us may be prone to stubborn or difficult to lose excess fat on the body. Sometimes these things simply are not enough, and technological interference is needed in order to kill the stubborn fat cells permanently. With excess fat we may also experience sagging skin and cellulite.

No matter what your concern is, our experts at 67 Degrees Cosmetic Clinic can guide you toward the best solution for your needs with one, or a combination, of our revolutionary and advanced treatment options.

Q&A:

Ultrashape is a comfortable treatment which effectively breaks down the fat cells in the target area, leading the blood vessels, nerves and skin intact. Focused and pulsed ultrasound energy is used for the selective destruction of fat cells.

Lipodissolve, is an innovative aesthetic treatment utilizing the natural digestive enzyme, deoxycholic, which is injected into areas of excess fat. When deoxycholic acid is injected it breaks down and destroys the fat cell membrane to permanently remove the fat cell from those stubborn areas.

Cellulite, also commonly reffered to as ‘orange peel skin’ or ‘cottage cheese skin,’ is areas of dimpled skin typically on the buttocks, thighs, abdomen and upper arms. Within the fat layer of our skin, we have connective tissue bands which connect the skin to muscles. In women these bands are tube-shaped and more columnar, which is partially why women are more prone to cellulite.

Fat is stored within the pockets of these bands, and when fat accumulates it pushes toward the skin while the bands are pulling them back down, which results in the lumpy or bumpy appearance on the skin.

VelaShape is a body contouring treatment to reduce cellulite and stubborn fat. This technology combines infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy and vacuum, which causes deep heating of fat cells as well as the surrounding connective tissue and underlying dermal fibers.

PRP Injections for cellulite can be done as a solo treatment or in conjunction with other treatments, such as VelaShape, Profound RF and Ultrashape. Platelet-rich-plasma is extracted from your own blood, then expertly injected under the skin where it stimulates your body to naturally repair damage and remodel collagen and elastin. This creates healthier skin structures necessary to minimize the appearance of cellulite.

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen which results in volume loss and combined with gravity we have a recipe for sagging skin. With elastin bonds weakening and eventually breaking, our skin loses its ability to “bounce back.”

Profound RF combines radiofrequency with microneedling to treat sagging skin and loss of volume. It works by penetrating the skin at a precise depth with tiny needles before momentarily releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy (heat), which stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid resulting in tighter, more lifted skin.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift. Small waves of focused energy penetrate to work from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.
