Not many ladies – or even gentlemen – care to admit it, but Valentine’s Day can be a cause of undue stress. The build-up to the romantic day of all time is known to bring some agonizing questions about how to land a date with your special someone, or maybe how to plan a rekindling of passion for those already in a relationship. Aggravating the already stressful prepping is, of course, how to look fabulous to make this an ultra-memorable night for the lovebirds.
And as February shows up on our electronic calendars, everyone suddenly seems to be in a rush to go on a crash diet or burn those calories at the gym. Rotundness is unacceptable and must be trimmed as soon as possible, and at least a couple of inches should be carved off the waistline. It’s hard to doll up for that date night when you are still trying to get fit to match the size of that stunning dress you have meticulously chosen; those extra pounds just might ruin the elegant cut, and that special night would be a disgrace.
Fortunately, cutting-edge solutions in the fields of cosmetology, aesthetics, and health are now available to help ladies avert their concerns about excess weight and love handles before the much-awaited Valentine’s evening. Spending many days in the gym or exerting effort on physical activities may not even be enough to slim down your figure in time but you need not worry anymore because the non-invasive treatments that are available would give you visible results in just one session which takes only 30 to 45 minutes, and is performed by a qualified clinical specialist in a private room where you can take that power nap while undergoing the procedure.
Unlike traditional surgery, no skin is cut, and no recovery days required away from home or office. After the treatment, the patient can rush back to her next meeting or share a cup of coffee with her friends. It would be business as usual – except that more calories and fat substances would have been removed instantly. Some of the annoying bulges would have even been tucked and trimmed. Look more closely, and the skin covering the arms, legs, and stomach where the treatment has been focused would seem firm and well-toned.
“Results can be seen after just one session in one of our treatments,” says Dr. Lalaine Salazar, the Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health & Beauty Centre in Quezon City. “It may not be a dramatic removal of three inches off the waistline, but a half-inch loss has been known to happen. That’s a lot more than the patient would have accomplished had she run around the block, or lifted weights for a week. We take regular measurements on weight and waist size, among other statistics, and monitor the patient's improvement in each and every session.”
“We note the changes and study how we can support our patient to achieve her goals,” continues Dr. Salazar. “The programs we design are customized, and correspond to each lady’s physiology, skin condition, and medical history. While all of these women want to slim down in the soonest possible time, each approach is different, and each treatment is calibrated specifically to bring out the best result in each one.”
Two treatments in SvelT’i are instrumental in helping the patient attain her preferred body size and weight, while shaping the less flattering parts into a new and attractive leanness: the I-Curve by I-LIPO, and Thermogenic. These machines break down the undesired fats painlessly from within as they emit rays and pulses into the affected areas. They work with the body’s innate health-inducing physiological processes to eliminate the toxins and impurities that contribute to the weight loss and skin toning.
During the I-Curve by I-LIPO procedure, pads are placed on the regions which need to be slimmed or toned down. Dual waves of low-level laser rays focus on the built-up fat and the triglyceride that it contains. The body’s fat-burning process will be stimulated, causing it to tear down all those accumulated elements that have led to excess weight. Once the fat has been broken down into acids and glycerol, a vacuum massage will siphon these liquefied impurities out of the body. As a final touch, RF reproduces collagen which rejuvenates and makes the skin firmer.
Thermogenic also works with the body’s mechanisms and has the patient literally sweat the fat out while lying comfortably inside it. This time, Far Infrared Rays that go through her skin jumpstarts her metabolism. The body is also detoxified as fat cells, cellulite, waste, and other toxic substances are purged, with an equivalent of burning 600 – 800 calories per treatment. Added health advantages are improvement in blood circulation, and fresh bursts of energy replacing the common lethargy brought about by too many sedentary hours in front of the computer.
“Our solutions use the latest advances in science, research, and technology to tap into the body’s intrinsic design to restore health and eliminate possible triggers for illness,” says Dr. Salazar. “That’s why we get optimal results. It might take a few sessions to shrink down to your ideal dress size, but the result from the first session can definitely encourage you. Some of our patients changed their wardrobe to fit their new lean, mean – and attractive frame after only a couple of sessions.”
That certainly is good news to the stressed, and always-on-the-go ladies who fear that they may not have the time to make themselves look stunning and svelte for the Day of the Hearts. Through these latest beauty treatments, they can be fit and fab just in time for Valentine’s.
