Excess belly fat is particularly unhealthy and can be problematic after pregnancy and with aging. Stress and poor sleep make things worse and it’s a fact that belly fat can be harder to shift than fat in other areas for some people, depending on their genetic make-up.
With the rapid stretching of the skin experienced during pregnancy the collagen and elastin fibrils can become over stretched so producing loose, hanging, irregular skin. Rapid weight loss following pregnancy can actually make this aspect worse and exercise makes no difference to the appearance of the overstretched skin. BTL Exilis offers unparalleled opportunity for dealing with this. The radiofrequency and ultrasound delivered through the skin with consequent heating immediately firms up the collagen and elastin fibrils and stimulates production of more over the weeks and months following treatment. The resultant firmer, taughter appearance of the belly skin can do much to raise confidence as diet and exercise play their part
Diet (high protein, low fat) and exercise are of paramount importance in dealing with the belly fat and at Intimate You we are delighted to offer a fabulous helping hand. Our BTL Exilis radiofrequency and Ultrasound device actually kills fat cells by making them burst (the scientific term for the process is apoptosis). The waste products from the dead fat cells are then metabolised in the liver and excreted from the body.
The Exilis skin tightening and fat removal treatment is designed to be painless and comfortable. There are no needles on injections involved, and most patients tolerate the procedure very well, without the need for any topical anesthetics.
At the heart of Exilis’ design is a cooling technology that helps prevent damage to the upper layers of the skin. It is this aspect of the technology that makes treatment painless and quite comfortable. The cooling occurs simultaneously with the application of radio frequencies, so that the skin is cooled at the same time as the frequencies pass through. This is the key that allows for deep penetration and melting of fat cells beneath, while keeping the skin layers intact.
A minimum of 4 treatments at 7-10 day intervals are necessary to achieve good results. It is extremely important to be well hydrated before, during and after treatment for the best results.
