Treatments To Support Weight Loss

By Ellie Taylor 14th June 2022 Category: Advice

If you find yourself struggling to choose a diet that sticks or keep weight off, Mediweight is here to help—using a diet that doesn’t only deliver effective weight loss but uses specialised body contouring treatments designed to firm, tone and tightens skin.

Mediweight is a medically supervised weight loss programme, making sure you are healthy and safe. The eating plan is designed to ensure your body burns stored fat and not vital muscle tissue. It’s paired with weekly ultrasound and other endermologie skin tightening treatments targeting superficial fat and cellulite.

In this blog, we explain the fat reduction treatments that you will receive when you choose Mediweight.

What Is Ultrasound Body Contouring?

Most people have areas of stubborn, immoveable build-ups of fat, causing unwanted lumps and bumps on your body. These are caused by layers of subcutaneous fat settling under the skin, and they are challenging to remove, even with diet and specific exercise.

On the Mediweight programme, you will have weekly sessions with an Aesthetic Therapist who will use body contouring treatments to target diet-resistant body fat and help firm, tone and tighten skin. One of the techniques used is a specialist ultrasound device.

Body contouring ultrasound treatments are a non-invasive fat reduction process, meaning you will avoid the need for surgical interventions like liposuction.

Our revolutionary body contouring device can work to remove inches from the body. It works by projecting two beams of safe ultrasound technology to heat the fatty tissue. The sound waves are sent deep into the layers of your skin – about 1 to 5cm – creating a disruptive vibration that breaks apart fat cells and parts them from your dermal layers.

The dislodged cells are then absorbed by your lymphatic system and metabolised by your body which drains or reabsorbs the excess fluid created. This process reduces fat and toxins while simultaneously transforming cellulite and fatty tissue into smooth, firm skin. You can expect a reduction even after the first treatment.

Areas that can be treated include:

  • Bingo wings (underarm skin)
  • Abdomen
  • Back rolls
  • Buttocks and
  • Thighs

This ultrasound treatment doesn’t affect the surrounding stronger tissues, like blood vessels, nerves, or muscles, so it is very safe. Side effects are extremely rare but will be discussed in depth during your initial consultation. The treatment is not painful, and most people just experience a warm sensation.

Who Can Have Ultrasound Body Contouring?

The best candidates to have successful treatment are people who are:

  • In good overall health
  • Non-smokers
  • Following a healthy diet
  • Well-hydrated

If you have stubborn fat but don’t want to resort to surgery, this treatment could be perfect for you.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The treatment is long-lasting as long as you continue to follow a healthy, calorie-controlled diet with regular exercise.

Staying hydrated by drinking your regular 8 glasses of water a day will accelerate fat elimination and is the key to the process.

Endermologie Treatments

Mediweight ultrasound and body contouring treatments work on volume reduction, skin tightening and cellulite removal. This treatment’s main benefit is that it stops the risk of loose and sagging skin that you often get when dieting.

Applying the chosen technology to the targeted area will break down the stubborn cellulite fat cells while simultaneously strengthening the surrounding connective tissue. Like the ultrasound treatments, the fat will be removed and excreted by your lymphatic system.

There are no injections or incisions involved in any of the procedures. During the session, you simply lie on a massage table while the treatments take place. As the apparatus moves across your skin, you may experience some suction, warmth, or draining sensations; many clients tell us it’s like a deep tissue massage.

All treatments are low risk, but there may be some side effects, like slight redness or bruising. This should subside in less than an hour; your practitioner will talk you through this.

Because of the movement of toxins, it may be possible that you experience some nausea and headaches, but this should be solved by drinking lots of water after the treatment to aid elimination.

Keep in touch with your specialist practitioner if you have any worries or concerns.
