Cosmetic procedures have always been associated with the fairer sex. But times are a changing. More and more men are undergoing aesthetic procedures to make themselves look more youthful. There are several procedures, offered by EHA Clinic, that are gaining popularity mostly because they offer greatly reduced downtime and minimal discomfort coupled with impressive results.
There are two types of procedures that have found rapid popularity among the male patients of EHA clinic, who make up 20 per cent of EHA’s patients. The two types of treatments are the non-surgical body contouring procedures and facial lifting procedures.
Non-surgical body contouring procedures
There are several technologies that can help to shape and improve the male body. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq and Liposonix, are both great tools to help men kill off resistant fat cells, thereby gaining a better-shaped and sculpted body. Coolsculpting works by freezing the fat cells, while Liposonix uses focused ultrasound to destroy the fat cells underneath the skin. Both procedures can be completed within a few hours, making them popular with male patients. In some instances, Dr Tam might even combine the two treatments in FIRE & ICE therapy.
Technology and equipment, however, are only tools. The effectiveness of a tool is highly dependent on the skills of the sculptor — in this case, the doctor who applies the treatment. An experienced and highly skilled doctor will be able to guarantee the results that patients want from these fat reduction treatments compared to one with less experience.
For each treatment, there are some patients who respond well, and some who do not. The reason for this often comes from incorrect application of the treatments. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is an excellent treatment provided the fat can be sucked into the applicator successfully. In those areas where the skin is too tight due to tension from excess fat underneath, the use of focused ultrasound, or Liposonix, would be a better option. Focused ultrasound can also be used to create better definition of the muscles to create the appearance of a 6-pack in the abdominal area.
These technologies target the fat in the subcutaneous areas effectively, but not the visceral fat in the abdomen. For the removal of visceral fat, another treatment that uses gentle yet deeply penetrating radiofrequency, called Indiba, may be more appropriate. The treatment stimulates the body to utilize visceral fat for energy during exercise and other forms of physical activity.
Facial lifting procedures are especially common amongst actors or media personalities who rely on their looks to generate income. It has now become popular amongst executives seeking to stay competitive. These procedures help to rejuvenate the look of the patient by removing lines on the face, tightening the skin, increasing the production of collagen in the skin or plumping up the lips. Procedures, such as BOTOX injections, threadlifts and dermal fillers, would only require a short trip to the clinic, for a fuller and more youthful face.
These procedures can all enhance the youthfulness of the face in some way, and most of them work in combination to completely rejuvenate the face. BOTOX injections are good for removing wrinkles and other facial lines, while fillers soften facial creases and fill up the lips. Threadlifts make use of threads to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps to tighten the skin.
Besides these treatments, EHA Clinic also offers various other procedures to help patients look younger. Contact us at 6235 3325 today to enquire about any of these treatments.
