Frequently Asked Questions
The 4D Body Lift program is a series of carefully planned treatments that target your body’s imperfections on multiple levels. It can, in fact, address any of the following:
- Visible cellulite on buttocks, thighs, tummy area, upper arms and lower legs
- Body shaping and skin lift
- Uneven skin relief after liposuction or any cosmetic surgery
- Sagginess, loss of body skin tone, body wrinkles and skin colour changes
- Droopy skin and fatty bumps just underneath the skin
- Overall skin rejuvenation of the treated area
Cellulite affects most women and many men, the main cause being their way of life. We all live with on-going daily stress, our diets are not always healthy, most of us live sedentary lives and getting enough exercise is always on the wish list but hardly ever realises.
This results in premature skin and body ageing which, in turn, leads to cellulite and lax skin. Some of us develop lumps and bumps which are mainly fatty deposits under the skin which can distort that perfect silhouette.
During the first stage, skin is improved and prepared for the treatments by increasing blood circulation, releasing growth factors and improving the skin with a few sessions of radiofrequency. This can be done with Velashape™, Exilis™ or Titania™ treatments, all of which are world class and widely recognised radiofrequency treatments.
The second stage, which is most important, involves the placement of special threads under the skin. This needs skill and precision and can only be done by doctors trained in the procedure. These threads can be placed at various depths to achieve the desired effect. In addition to creating a firmer structure, it can destroy and absorb fatty deposits as well as smooth and lift the skin surface.
Don’t worry, these procedures are pain free as the area being treated will be numbed with a local anaesthetic and the results are well worth it.
If there are severe stretch marks or dimpling, a third stage is added to address these problems specifically, but is not always necessary.
The PDO threading procedure involves using various lengths of thin acupuncture sterile needles to embed PDO dissolving threads deep underneath the surface of the skin. These wires are placed strategically into the dermis, where it acts as a frame for lifting and tightening loose and sagging skin. The material from which these threads are made, Polydioxanone, is a safe substance that keeps the skin in its new tightened state for 4-6months, whilst also synthesizing new collagen production. The lasting result will provide the skin with a fresh, well rested and firmer look whilst supporting new collagen formation for long lasting results.
The main objective is creating a lift, rather than restoring volume.
The threads form a structural framework, which instantaneously improves the skin contours. Results can be seen immediately after the procedure and continue to improve over the next three months.
The combination of improved circulation, radiofrequency and threading resolves problems under the skin which improves the appearance and quality of outer skin, which will make you a very happy client!
