When Diet and Exercise Hit a Wall

by | Nov 1, 2022

If you’re like some of our lovely patients at Austin Clinic and the Sanctuary, the promise of summer is the promise of an opportunity to show off your curves in body-conscious swimwear. If you’re like most of us, however, you may dread the idea, especially when diet and exercise aren’t working for you. “It’s not uncommon to hit a wall when it comes to re-shaping your body,” says Dr Austin. “Sometimes, you need a little help to look, and especially feel, your best.”

Does that sound like someone you know … maybe you? Don’t worry! Whether you need to get rid of unwanted fat or tighten skin to achieve your goals, visit us in Balgowlah for the latest and most effective body contouring options. At Austin Clinic, state-of-the-art technology plus unsurpassed experience and white-glove service make it easy.

Beat Fat Build-Up with Cooltech

There’s a reason fat is often referred to as stubborn. After weight loss, women may find stubborn pockets of fat can develop and the most strenuous exercise won’t help with:

  • Muffin tops
  • Love handles
  • Bra fat
  • Bulging thighs
  • Knee fat
  • Tuckshop arms

Men too, can be saddled (literally) with:

  • Thigh and stomach fat
  • Man boobs

Cooltech is a non-invasive treatment that quite literally freezes fat to death.
“Cooltech is less expensive than other types of non-invasive fat freezing such as Coolsculpting, the original cryo-lipolysis treatment,” notes Dr Austin. “This makes it more affordable to everyone.”

A vacuum applicator is placed on the target area and holds the fatty flesh between cooling panels for approximately 70 minutes. It is non-invasive and only mildly uncomfortable. After freezing, skin is massaged, and you are then sent on your way. The fat cells begin to die immediately and during the following weeks the body will naturally expel them through the lymphatic system.

Repair Skin Laxity: You’ll Like the Ultrasound of It

Patients who book an ULTRAcel Q+ treatment want two things: to lift and tighten their skin. When weight is lost through diet and exercise, skin does not always snap back into shape. “This is especially true as we get older,” points out Dr Austin. She notes that ULTRAcel Q+ tones sagging skin all over the body. It can help tighten skin and improve the appearance of:

  • Eyes and eyebrows
  • Lips
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Bellies
  • Bums
  • Chins

As with CoolTech treatments, UltraCel Q+ is delivered via a handheld device to produce high frequency ultrasound waves (HIFU). Unlike CoolTech, HIFU uses heat to promote collagen growth and stimulate the contraction of skin tissues on both superficial and deeper levels. Most patients can feel the effect immediately and see results that improve gradually and virtually unnoticeably for up to three months.
