We’ve all got certain areas of our body that make us feel less fabulous and amazing than we should.
At Fiori, we love being able to help people achieve their ideal body shape through safe and effective, non-invasive body contouring procedures. Lots of people with many different concerns come to us asking for various areas of the body to be treated.*
To make it easier for clients to identify what areas can be treated and with what treatment, we’ve outlined some key problem areas, and how our trained medical professionals use our signature procedures to treat them.
Tummy Fat and Love Handles
This has got to be our biggest customer! Many of us naturally experience fat gain around the midsection. Lots of women in particular can have a pocket of fat on the abdomen just below the belly button, or some extra padding around the hip area. This fat can be persistent even despite healthy eating and regular exercise. Age, gender and genetics often contribute to this1, so it can be very difficult to remove this unwanted fat.
Thankfully, these areas can be targeted through non-invasive body contouring procedures such as CoolSculpting and SculpSure. Both of these treatments are FDA approved for use on the abdomen and flanks. With the use of highly controlled temperature, they kill the fat cells permanently.*
CoolSculpting involves the application of controlled cooling, which freezes the fat cells without damaging the skin. The fat cells are eliminated through this process, and then naturally flushed out by the body. Similarly, SculpSure uses heating to damage and kill the unwanted fat cells. Up to 4 applicators can be applied at once to treat the targeted area.
Our trained medical professionals are hugely familiar with how to get the best results using these safe and effective procedures.*
Many of our clients also come to us to improve the appearance of their arms – whether it be to target areas of fat or to tighten loose skin. CoolSculpting has an applicator designed for treating the arms, so fat cells in the area can be effectively targeted and eliminated, slimming and toning the arms. Thermage can also be performed on the arms to improve the skin’s appearance, smoothing wrinkles and lines and tightening up the skin.
Consult with one of our clinicians to discuss your arm concerns, and we can develop a treatment plan to suit.
Skin Laxity/Aging Skin
Skin laxity or loose skin affects a lot of people and is a common sign of ageing. It can occur in many parts of the body from the face, to the arms, to the abdomen (particularly after childbirth). Thermage was developed to assist in stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process. Using radiofrequency, this technology transforms the skin from below, smoothing, tightening, and better defining the body and face. Thermage can also assist in smoothing out dimples or uneven skin.
Speak to our team about how Thermage can be used to improve skin laxity for you.
This is another concern we are often asked about at Fiori. Cellulite can occur in many areas of the body – from thighs and abdomen to arms and back of the knees. It affects up to 90% of women and 10% of men2, so it’s no wonder we get asked about it so often. Women particularly experience this around the age of 25-35 as estrogen levels begin to decrease resulting in decreased circulation.
The short answer is – no one has quite figured this one out yet. Speak to our medical professionals about how our treatments can assist in improving the appearance of cellulite. No – we won’t promise to get rid of it forever, but there are certain steps you can take to help.
If you have an area of concern that you’d like to have our therapists resolve for you, or if you’d like more information on the areas you can have treated, book in a free initial consultation with Fiori Institute of Contouring.
