Muscle separation (abdominal strengthening) Lower abdomen fat removal, skin tightening, stretch mark and C-section scar reduction – Recommended 12 weeks post pregnancy
UniPolar Radio Frequency technology – Pregnancy can bring lots of changes to your skin. Most of them disappear after delivery, but sometimes there’s loose skin left behind. Skin is made of collagen and elastin, so it expands with significant weight gain. Once stretched, skin may have trouble returning to its original shape. Our UniPolar Radio Frequency technology will boost collagen production and elastin synthesis, that is what makes radio frequency especially suitable for targeting loose skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in your body. It creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness. RF therapy has been used since 2001 to fight against sagging skin.
Ablative Resurfacing – Stretch marks and C-section scar. Stretch marks develop in nine out of ten pregnancies. These pesky pinkish streaks around stomachs, breasts, or hips happen when collagen and elastin (the fibres that keep your skin taut) stretch and snap during the rapid pressure from baby and weight gain RF Resurfacing combines micro needling and radiofrequency benefits, in one powerful treatment. Micro needling has been successfully used as a treatment for scars for several years. It involves creating micro punctures in your skin, which help to break down old scar tissue, and stimulate fresh new collagen and elastin.
During pregnancy, your growing uterus puts pressure on the two bands of abdominal muscles that meet in the middle of your stomach. This can cause them to separate in a condition known as diastasis recti (or abdominal separation). A bulge may be visible down your midline. Muscle stimulation also stimulates muscle separation, thus making our StimSure treatment ideal for women concerned about Abdominal Muscle Separation. (This treatment may not be suitable for all clients with diastasic recti)
HIFU – Fat removal and skin tightening. Why is there Increased Fat Mass Gain during and post pregnancy? Because the body intuitively knows that you’ll need the extra adipose tissue for the developing the baby and breastfeeding. Our HIFU fat removal will breakdown the lower abdomen and help with skin tightening.
