The scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, noted that the popsicles were known to be freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold can target fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based. 4 3 TrE AT mEnT CoolSculpting by Zeltiq EXPErT Janelle Molton @ epiclinic® Cosmetic Medicine COST From $700 per cycle in bundled packages. epiclinic.com.au TrE AT mEnT natural Hormone Balancing + Comprehensive Urine Hormone testing EXPErT Karina Pike, Principal naturopath @ Sowelu wellness COST initial Consult costs $130 and the Dried Urine test for Comprehensive Hormones (DUtCH) test is $379. soweluwellness.com.au FIrST THInGS FIrS T... You’ll meet with our highly experienced and university trained CoolSculpting medical technicians, who’ll provide an in-depth and accurate consultation, taking the time to discuss your goals for reshaping your body. together you will assess the entire body from a 360 degree angle, then focus on the specific areas you wish to eliminate fat. All CoolSculpting consultations and reviews at epiclinic are complimentary. BEST SUITED ideal for those with diet and exercise resistant fat deposits. the CoolSculpting procedure can help both women and men reduce those stubborn bulges for good. Areas that can be effectively treated are the entire abdomen, flanks (muffin top), knees, arms, inner and outer thighs, rear of thighs directly under buttocks, scapulae, back, bra rolls, male chest and chin. THE LOWDOWn the CoolSculpting procedure safely and effectively delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Crystalisation of the frozen fat cells induces a natural signal (called ‘aptosis’), which tells the fat cells their function is no longer needed in the body. Over the following few months, your body naturally processes the remnants of disused cells and eliminates them leaving a more slender, sculpted you. the CoolSculpting treatment is the only FDA cleared non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. the results are proven, noticeable and lasting, so you’ll look great from every angle. HOW OFTEn? Most patients only require 1 to 2 treatments. if a patient requires a second treatment this can be performed between 30 and 60 days following the first. THE rESULTS Suitable patients can expect a more slender appearance with clothes looking and feeling more comfortable and problem areas being reduced from every angle. results begin to show as early as 3 weeks with final results around 3 months. IS IT PErmAnEnT? Yes, providing patients maintain a healthy and active lifestyle with minimal weight gain. WHAT TO rEmEmBEr Following dieting and weight loss, fat cells reduce however the actual number of fat cells remains the same. As weight is gained, fat cells grow in size. the CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas. You can expect a fat reduction of 20-30% within the treated areas after 8-12 weeks of a single visit. these fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body.

Many women with acne, in particular cystic, hormonal acne and irregular, heavy or painful periods are placed on repeated doses of antibiotics or the Oral Contraceptive Pill (OCP) as a treatment. these are band-aid approaches and do not treat the underlying causes. the OCP and repeated use of antibiotics can have serious side effects and often when the medications are stopped, symptoms return, sometimes more aggressive than before. BEST SUITED Females suffering from acne or hormonal breakouts, rosacea, painful or irregular periods, difficulty losing weight or unexplained weight gain. THE LOWDOWn we begin by assessing your current symptoms, diet, lifestyle and treatment goals and then discuss simple tips to balance your hormones naturally. where needed, a DUtCH test can be used to determine your levels of estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, progesterone and DHeAs as well as the metabolites of these hormones. this is the most accurate and comprehensive hormone test available. the test is done in the privacy of your own home, using four easy-to-collect, dried urine samples. From here we utilise the information to directly balance your hormones using a combination of nutrition, diet and lifestyle changes as well as herbal medicine. HOW OFTEn? the test itself is a once off. However, follow up consults at Sowelu wellness and a series of specific, naturopathic practitioner-only supplements may be required depending on the individual and the test results. THE rESULTS Address the cause of adult acne and hormone imbalance, treating it once and for all. test results may take up to four weeks. in this time we can take some practical steps towards improving your diet and the health of your skin. Significant results can be expected within 2 to 6 weeks of treatment and these results are not only limited to the skin, with effective hormone balancing you can also expect regular, pain free menstrual cycles, improved fertility and even a reduction in mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. DISCOmFOrT LEVEL WHY CHOOSE SOWELU? Unlike a blood test that tests cortisol as a one off, we utilise four samples to provide a pattern of free cortisol and show when your cortisol levels are higher or lower, as these naturally fluctuate. the DUtCH test is also far more comprehensive than traditional blood and saliva hormone tests. You do not need a referral from your GP or gyno to have this testing done and we can start treatment immediately. did you know?
