Getting help in achieving the body of your dreams

APPARENTLY last Monday was Little Black Dress Day.

APPARENTLY last Monday was Little Black Dress Day.

For any men reading this page then it’s the day that us women decide that it’s about time we took some action if we are going to fit into that little black number for the festivities.

But if you think you may have left it a little too late and don’t fancy every night for the next month down the gym then you can get a little helping hand.

It seems that more and more of us are enlisting help to achieve a look that we are happier with and if you feel tempted then you could check out Waterside Aesthetics in Dickens Heath.

Liposuction may seem a little dramatic but can work wonders for those small stubborn areas of fat on tummies, arms or other areas.

It’s not a miracle cure and won’t make you lose weight but can help to lose to lose an inch or two where it’s needed most.

The procedure is done under local anaesthetic and a cannula is inserted via small cuts, then moved backwards and forwards to loosen the fat, which is then deposited in a container via a vacuum pump.

It’s not the most pleasant of experiences but as they say ‘no pain, no gain’.

If you don’t fancy the surgical option then you could try Velasmooth which treats cellulite and contours the body.

It’s a bit like a giant vacuum hose which massages the area to smooth it out.

It actually works by radio frequency and light which manipulates the skin to improve the appearance of cellulite.

Again, a little uncomfortable while it’s happening, but as the sessions only last around five to ten minutes worth the effort in the end.

Waterside offers a wide range of treatments including laser hair removal, wrinkle reduction, and botox and the owner Helen Hannigan has 25 years experience in nursing so you know whatever you choose you will be in good hands.

The clinic is discreetly situated in the waterside setting of Dickens Heath and was awarded best medical aesthetics clinic in the UK and Ireland last year.
