5 Key Benefits of Body Contouring Treatments
We’re all dissatisfied with certain aspects of our appearance. Maybe you just can’t get rid of your double chin no matter how healthily you eat or how often you exercise. Maybe your wrinkles make you look and feel older than you are.
Whatever the issue, body contouringis a fantastic way to transform those parts of your body you feel unhappy with, offering real benefits for all body types. Let’s take a look at 5 key benefits Astra Medi Spa’s Sheerwave body contouring treatment offers …
A Non-invasive Way to Reduce Fat
When a healthier lifestyle and regular exercise fail to give you the body you dream of, you may think cosmetic surgery is your only option. But that’s not the case — Sheerwave body contouring is a non-invasive, effective alternative.
This uses ultrasound to target fat cells and liquefy their fat, which is simply metabolized or removed from the body naturally. Radio frequency (RF) is utilized in the body contouring process too, stimulating collagen production by heating the skin. This leads to tightening and smoothing in any areas affected.
No need to put your body through surgery. No long recovery process. Just visible results over time.
Target Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Wrinkles and fine lines are natural signs of ageing, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them. They can be hard to live with if you feel yours are more visible than they should be, adding extra years to your age.
Sheerwave body contouring tightens the skin in your face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Restore Firmness to Skin
As we age, the body produces less collagen and elastin, creating saggier skin. This is a common complaint, but it affects some people more than others. You may feel self-conscious about your loose skin and find your clothing choices limited.
Our Sheerwave body contouring can target different parts of your body, such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms and face. The device creates a smoother, more streamlined appearance wherever it’s applied.
Reduce Visibility of Cellulite
Countless women are affected by cellulite, especially as the menopause approaches. Hormonal changes, smoking and prolonged sitting have all been associated with cellulite.
But body contouring is a simple way to reduce cellulite, tightening the skin to look smoother and younger.
Eliminate Stubborn Pockets of Fat
Some fat just can’t be shifted through eating right and working out. Stubborn pockets of fat can be infuriating and even upsetting, but body contouring can make a lasting impact through ultrasound.
Again, this is a major advantage as there’s no need for traditional liposuction or other invasive procedures.

What’s it Really Like to Get a Chemical Peel?
Ever considered a chemical peel?
If so, you’re not alone. This treatment has become an increasingly popular option for women and men alike, with more than 1.3 millionperformed in the United States alone in 2017. But what’s it actually like? And why should you try it for yourself?
Join us as we take a look …
How Does a Chemical Peel Work?
If the name sounds a little extreme to you, relax: a chemical peel is nothing to be worried about. The process involves applying a safe form of acid to the face, which works to break the top layers down and reveal smoother, brighter skin beneath.
The acid creates a controlled, safe reaction in the skin to promote the production of collagen, prompting the skin to effectively regenerate. As a result, your face not only looks younger and healthier than before, but actually feels better too.
This makes a chemical peel a great option to keep your skin at its most youthful as you age, due to the body’s gradual drop in collagen-production.
It’s that simple.
What Else Do I Have to Know about Chemical Peels?
What types of chemical peels are available?
There are different degrees of chemical peel, with some designed to penetrate deeper into the skin than others. For example, if you have severe acne scars or sun spots, a medium-depth chemical peel can make a big difference.
A chemical peel reduces the visibility of common signs of ageing too, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
How long does the treatment last?
The amount of time the acid stays on your face varies based on the target penetration-depth and goals. You’ll be given key details like this before the treatment itself, for your own peace of mind.
The recovery period differs in length according to the type of chemical peel too, but it’s generally between five and seven days. Ointments should be applied to the skin to help the healing process along, but again, you’ll be given clear advice on all this before your chemical peel.
Multiple treatments may be required over time to keep your skin looking and feeling amazing. Chemical peels are effective on all skin types too.
Who will perform my chemical peel?
