CoolSculpting is a gentle, 40 to 75 minute treatment (depending upon which applicators are used) during which you may watch movies, TV, read, listen to music, nap, or work on your laptop. The Coolspa specialist will outline your target zones with a surgical pen, and then apply a soothing gel. Next, the cryolipolysis applicators will be placed strategically over your skin, drawing the target areas inside. Each applicator is computer monitored to ensure its proper temperature at all times.
Ultrasound energy (UltraShape). This type of treatment uses ultrasound energy to break down fat. It is the most time-intensive of the four types, taking approximately one hour per treatment session. Instead of hooking you up to a machine, a technician will move the device around manually. It uses a mechanical vibration to break down and destroy fat. This works on the abdomen and isn’t meant for other areas, Dr. Khetarpal says. There is no discomfort, she says.
When diet and exercise efforts have been tried, tried again, and then exhausted, it can feel as achieving your dream figure is completely out of reach. However, modern medical technology and micro-body contouring techniques can open the doors that were once blocked by frustration and discouragement. Physicians at Athenix use these top three procedu...

CoolSculpting is unique in that it is the only method of fat loss that utilizes freezing technology. Other methods involve the use of heat, and include ultrasound energy, lasers, and radiofrequency. CoolSculpting is more effective in removing fat and does so with more comfort than these other modalities. CoolSculpting is, in fact, the world’s leading technology for the noninvasive reduction of localized collections of excess fat.

But body contouring doesn't come cheap. The average price of a full-body lift is around $30,000. Arm surgery runs in the range of $8,000, while inner thighs cost about $10,000 a pair. A breast lift and upper back surgery will set you back about $15,000, and a neck and face lift would add another $15,000 to the bill. (As you probably already guessed, insurance rarely covers any of it.)
There are no side-effects to a body sculpting procedure which must be reason enough for anyone who wants to try the treatment. Unlike traditional surgeries which pose a risk of infection due to going under general anesthesia not to mention the risk of post-surgical allergies. Apart from that, there is no indication of pain anywhere in the body sculpting procedure. Patients might experience a mild discomfort and that is only due to the initial focusing of light on their designated area. There’s no other sign of discomfort throughout the whole procedure. Plus, none of the patients have reported any type of infection that occurred as a result of the body sculpting procedure.
i've been a member of pure gym for about a year and a half now and find it really good. I describe it as the easyjet of gyms, you know what you are getting, no frills but basics are delivered well. I also find that they are quite responsive, I mentioned that there wern't enough after work and evening classes and the timetable did improve (although it has slackened off again recently but I hope they will be doing something about that) The showers are nice and changing rooms always clean, whenever I go there is plenty of equipment for everyone, the machines are all new and in good nick. If anything does get broken they usually fix it within a day or so. The only thing is the personal training, which is just as expensive as any other gym. I know its one on one training and does cost but I do wish it was a bit more affordable!
Signs of a sharp instructor: Instructors should tell you to use moderately heavy weights so that you don’t do more than 15 reps per set. Watch out for instructors who do dozens of repetitions with light weights: You’re not going to build much strength or tone that way. The instructor should correct your form and remind you where you should feel the exercise. Watch for a warm-up and cooldown, too.

I'm pretty new to gyms, and well still slightly scared by the whole thing. But this place had a pretty relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the staff are really nice. There is a great selection of equipment and a lot of each machine, so even at the busiest of times you're pretty much sure to get on what you want to use. Being open 24hrs is great too as it makes avoiding the busiest times pretty easy. The price is excellent too, £17.99 per month at the moment. The only drawback is, with being the but cheaper there aren't paper towel machines about to wipe down machines after use, and for a pretty big gym it only has 1 drinking fountain and so queues can be a bit annoying when youre a knackered and parched it feels like hours!
