If summer has crept up on you and you’re in a panic about exposing more skin than you’re used to, fear not. Whether your summer wardrobe will involve a bikini on the beach or shorts and dresses back home, it’s not too late to tackle some of the most common areas of concern.
The Clinic on the Lisburn Road has a range of the latest and most advanced non-surgical cosmetic treatments on offer to help you get summer-ready like gorgeous Sofia Vergara (41). These non-invasive procedures can help deliver real results without going under the surgeon’s knife. However, it is recommended you consult a therapist as early as possible, as a series of treatments over time will deliver the best results.
From cellulite, visible veins and lumps and bumps, The Clinic has the solution to many of your last minute beauty dilemmas.
A simplistic, painless and highly effective procedure for thread veins and spider veins, Sclerotherapy is carried out by a highly skilled, experienced practitioner and is aimed at reducing the appearance of both thread and spidery veins. These veins may not be a medical issue, but they can be unsightly and a source of embarrassment for some women, which explains why this is such a popular treatment.
The procedure itself involves injecting a solution into the vein itself via a micro-needle; causing the vein to collapse. The results are visible in a matter of weeks as the veins themselves fade, along with your insecurities allowing you to enjoy the weather and truly embrace and love your beach body.
Bums and tums
If you’re worries about unsightly lumps and bumps Endermologie could be the answer. It’s a high tech, non-invasive procedure that massages the skin resulting in the dramatic improvement in the appearance of cellulite and body contouring.
Lasting just 35 minutes, the treatment may be mildly uncomfortable at times where there is a dense concentration of cellulite; however the treatment feels similar to that of a gentle massage.
The experienced therapist uses a hand piece that rollers the skin to target the connective tissue that lies beneath the surface and adapts manoeuvres for specific body types. The treatment has been known to reduce the level of water retention, bloating, elimination of fat cells, detoxification, and stimulation of collagen for stronger, firmer skin and of course the reduction of cellulite. It is a procedure recommended by surgeons as both a pre-op and post-op solution for body surgery, such as liposuction. This treatment is the ideal way to ensure all of your body looks toned and beach-ready.
One of the factors that vibrant and radiant skin depends on is constant cell turnover. Every day the skin is constantly sloughing off thousands of dead cells and replacing them with new ones.
As we age this naturally occurring process slows which leaves us with duller, less even toned skin, blemishes and fine lines. That coupled with other factors that keep the skin looking fresh and young such as decreased elastin and collagen production leads to skin aging.
Chemical peels are used to improve the skin’s appearance by applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing the superficial dead layers of skin to separate, peel off and to stimulate the production of new healthy cells. The new skin looks brighter and fresher with an overall new softer glow.
This treatment should take place three to four weeks ahead of any time spent in the direct sun.
Products are also available to use at home to continue your treatment and contain high SPF to keep your complexion protected and looking great.
All procedures are administered by a fully qualified aesthetic practitioner. Prior to any treatment, the experienced team at The Clinic will discuss the process and talk through any questions or concerns you might have.
