Our editor Marianne started preparations for the New Year in advance. To fit into her favorite dress, she has now gone to the Lantan clinic and corrected her imperfect figure with hardware techniques.
The procedure opens up new possibilities for body shaping and solving such acute problems as: excess body weight, excess volume and decreased skin tone. BodyLine is a whole hardware complex that combines all the advanced technologies for body shaping: photo-pneumatic massage, electroporation, ultrasonic thermolipolysis and radiofrequency therapy. Such a rich arsenal makes it possible to use these techniques within the framework of one procedure, taking into account the individual and anatomical characteristics of the patient, and to obtain an order of magnitude more pronounced result than using the techniques separately.
Before starting, the head doctor of the clinic talked to me. I immediately filled out a consent form for the course of procedures and a health questionnaire. Together with the head physician, we designated the area of influence (for me, these are the buttocks and the back of the thigh), agreed on the course, alternation and frequency of procedures. We chose the main regimen: in my case, it is a decrease in the appearance of cellulite and an increase in skin tone.
Then I passed into the hands of a specialist. Before the first session, the doctor measured the total volume of the hips, each hip separately and the volume above the knees, and also took my photo.
The first procedure I met at the clinic was the BodyLine procedure. This procedure helps to reduce body volume and tone the skin. My procedure program is called "Body Shaping".
Stage 1 of the procedure: on the areas requiring correction, the doctor applied massage oil and began exposure to the vacuum roller nozzle with infrared radiation. Previously, I tried vacuum massage, but it categorically does not suit me - with brittle vessels, bruises always remain after it, and there is almost no effect. But this photo-pneumatic massage worked for me. There are almost no unpleasant sensations - the doctor is adjusting the power, and after the sessions not a single bruise or bruise was found.
Stage 2 of the procedure: an ultrasound gel is applied to problem areas and an ultrasonic tip is used. This mode helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Stage 3 of the procedure: electroparaction. On a special gel, the doctor drives two nozzles. During this stage of the procedure, you may feel a slight tingling sensation that does not cause discomfort. This stage is considered non-injection mesotherapy and stimulates lipolysis.
Stage 4 of the procedure: the doctor returns to the first nozzle, only now it works in the "lymphatic drainage" mode, helping to remove excess fluid.
Each stage of the procedure lasts 10 minutes. In general, I spent about an hour in the doctor's office, because after the procedure it is best to take a shower - the gels that are applied during the session are not so easy to wash off. There were no unpleasant sensations during this procedure, you can calmly relax or chat with the doctor.
Modular therapy system of the latest generation - Slim Up. The Slim Up system combines three pulse programs and six infrared radiation sources. This combined effect tones and strengthens muscles and skin, and corrects excess adipose tissue.
If we compare SlimUp with the first procedure, we can say that I liked this one less. But it's not about efficiency, it's about feeling. The first procedure does not cause any discomfort, while SlimUp is an intense muscle contraction that must be tolerated. This is an impulse procedure, during which it is clearly impossible to relax, but this does not make it ineffective.
At the beginning of the procedure, plates are applied to problem areas (in my case, the lateral and inner thighs), which will facilitate deeper penetration of infrared radiation into the tissues. Then the radiation source turns on and the problem areas warm up for 20 minutes. In this mode, the skin is saturated with oxygen, detoxification and toning processes are activated.
The next stage: impulse action. Electrodes are placed on the muscles to stimulate muscle contraction. In my case, the areas of influence were: buttocks, lateral and inner thighs, and lateral abdominal muscles. I must say that endurance is required here, since even for a trained person such an effect is not always pleasant, but tolerable. The doctor adjusts the power of exposure and adjusts it during the session. The electrodes work in two modes: reduction of body fat and toning. Each mode lasts 20 minutes.
I visited the clinic twice a week, and the procedures alternated. Considering that the initial weight and volume of my body are not large, I regularly go in for sports and follow a certain diet, we can say that the course of procedures gave an excellent result.
The total volume of the thighs has changed by one centimeter, the volume of each hip has decreased by 2 centimeters, and the volume above the knees - by all 3. At the same time, my weight remained stable - 56-57 kilograms.
I would definitely recommend these procedures or their combination to anyone who wants to improve their figure. Especially for the New Year!
