In this day and age, women, and men, have never been so empowered to freely showcase and flaunt their bodies whatever shape, color, size they come in. However, even though long gone are the dated and restricted views of what construes beauty, a healthy, fit body with smooth, supple skin will never go out of fashion. Now the summer reason is in full swing, here are the 6 non – surgical ways to your best summer body and skin no working out needed.
Combatting Cellulite: Endospheres Therapy
Despite being a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen, cellulite is the No.1 area of concerns for many women (and men) when bathing suit season begins. Caused by a buildup of fat underneath the skin, the amount of celluilte you have and how noticeable it is can be cased on your genes, body fat percentage, and age. And as such, some women are more predisposed to it than others – even if they are naturally slim.
Endospheres Therapy is an FDA registered treatment that utilizes Compression Microvibration for body and face, treating issues at their root cause. Essentially, Endospheres produces a vibration and pressure combination that is described as ‘vascular gymnastics’ on the body and this ‘workout‘ generates the drainage of fluids, improves local blood circulation, and thus in turn reduces cellulite and imprves muscle tone. The treatment also has the added benefit of reducing muscle pain.
Endospheres Therapy treatment is non – invasive and the technology is entirely based on clever and targeted massaging of the muscle tissues and flushing out of trapped toxins thanks to its powerful drainage effects. The treatment is not painful, but patients may experience some pulling sensations or applied pressure as the Compression Microvibration works its magic.
Thargeting Stubborn Fat: CoolSculpting
We’ve all been there. Despite eating well and exercing regularly, that of wobbly flesh just won’t part ways with us. Dr. Sophie Shotter, renowned medical aesthetic doctor and founder of Illuminate Skin Clinic, recommends CoolSculpting: ‘This gold standard treatment freezes stubborn pockets of fat to sculpt your silhouette, and can be used on many different areas – the stoch, flanks, bra fat, inner and outer thighs, arms, knees and even chin areas are commonly treated.’ During the treatment, the fat is frozen to 12 degrees Fahrenheit (or -11 Celsius), permanently killing around 25% of the fat cells in that areas.
You may have already read about Dr. Shotter’s non – surgical facelift remedy, Profound Radio Frequency Micro – neddling treatment, but the technology can also be used on the body to achieve excellent cellulite – reducing outcome. ‘We use a slightly deeper needle depth to target the fatty layers of tissue’. Dr. Shotter says of the difference in techniques: ‘The Radio Frequency Micro – needling breaks down the fibrous septae of the cellulitic areas, improving their appearance markedly’.
Dr Shotter further recommends two other treatments, Body Ballancer and Venus Legacy. Venus Legacy is the multipolar radiofrequency device that is entirely non – invasive, and feels a little like a hot stone massage. It can be used to reduce fat pockets and cellulite. ‘Body Ballancer – this feels like you’re putting on a large pair of trousers which are not very flattering. But you lie back, and then gently maddaged by the trousrs which help to drain fluid from the body. The result is not just an improvement in cellulite, but often an improvement in energy, immunity and sleep’.
Solving Skin Condition Issues: Lumenis Stellar M22
For those with any skin condition issues on the body such as acne, pigmented and vasculat lesions, or even just wanted leg veins and tattos, Stellar M22 is another genius invention by Lumenis known for its powerful multi – application platform.

Tightening And Lifting: Lumenis NuEra Tight

The technology can be used to target loose skin on the abdomen buttocks, theighs, upper arms to improve the appearance of skin laxity and cellulite with no downtime.

NuEra Tight is a personalized and intelligent – controlled painless heat – based treatment that feels like a hot stone massage and works from head to toe’. Natali Kelly, founder of London – based Natali Kelly Clinic and aesthetic practitioner / skin expert, says of the treatment ofered at her clinic: ‘It’s a non – invasive, FDA cleared radio frequency solution, that treats wrinkles, skin tightening, cellulite and fat reduction. It works amazingly on any skin type from light to dark, tackling skin laxity, cellulite smoothing, jaw and neck sculpting by creating new collagen formation which can result in younger looking, tighter skin’.
Kelly adds that the treatment takes about 10 – 15 minutes for a facial and 20 – 25 minutes for body areas and sessions are only required once a week for 1 month, with some patients notice an improvement after just one session.
The Combined Solution: The Eudelo Cellubust
As a combined solution also targeting stubborn cellulite, Eudelo’s CelluBust treatment with its triple action and homecare regim can significantly reduce the appearance of simply skin and in turn make a huge difference to you body confidence this summer.
The treatment, tailored – made and offered at Eudelo, the award – winning skin clinc led by top dermatologist Dr. Stefanie Williams, is a comprehensive 12 – week course that involves various treatments and techniques such as carboxytherapy (where a medical grade CO2 gas is infused into the fat tissue to shrink fatty deposits), painless shickwave treatment using acoustic waves to aid lymphatic drainage, injection of special anti – cellulite mesotherapy solution, and cryostimulation (a non – invasive stimulation of the skin with extreme cold to improve oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin and boost lymphatic drainage). The in – clinic treatment typically lasts 12 weeks with home – care provided to maximize desired results.
For certain body areas like the decolletage, Endelo also recommends ultrasound skin thightening treatment such as the Gold – Standard Ultherapy, where therapist will direct high powered, micro – focused ultrasound (MFU), or high – intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) into the dermis, in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production for the perfectly lifted, smooth and supple skin.
