UGLY SCARS AND MARKS: No more suffering from them - try Fat Freeze Clinic

UGLY SCARS AND MARKS: No more suffering from them - try Fat Freeze Clinic

Whether as a result of burns, surgery, injuries, infections or insect bites, scars and marks are hard-to-ignore embarrassments. I was reminded of how unsightly a deep scar on my forehead looked when a friend started calling me Harry Potter.

I had not earned this scar through admiration for the film character. One day, after pruning a lemon tree in my garden, I accidentally walked straight into a newly-cut branch which earned me a few stiches at the doctor. However, as the cut healed, I discovered he had not done a very good job. Instead of my ‘war scar’ giving me character, it only brought me ridicule – I wanted it gone!

After some research, I found that there was actually a way to quickly and effectively aiding the disappearance of this unwanted scar at Fat Freeze Clinic which is situated at Shop 23C at the Kings Court Shopping Centre in Walmer Port Elizabeth.

On arrival, I met with the clinic’s cheerful therapist, Hilda, who examined my scar and assured me that it could be treated with Ultrasound Cavitation.

Ultrasound Cavitation is a non-surgical fat reduction and weight loss solution that has been around for almost a decade now. The technique uses bio-cavitational ultrasound waves and radio frequency energy, to selectively break down fat cells and cellulite without affecting neighbouring organs and cells.

Immediately after treatment, your body will clear away the ‘melted’ fat cells, mainly through the liver. The procedure is comfortable, painless, has no side effects and requires no anaesthesia. Hilda also explained that the technique can be used for removing stubborn wrinkles, stretch marks and scars. She recommends eight to 10 sessions per treatment.

My first session lasted 15 minutes. Although Hilda had cautioned me that I might have small bumps on my skin after each treatment, I never had them. After this session, I could already see a difference on my scar.

Previously, a dark-red mark on my forehead, when I looked at it at home, it was now lighter. After my fifth visit, the scar was no longer easily noticeable. Even my friend was astonished – better still, he had to start calling me names!

In perspective, perhaps I had indeed visited the Hogwarts for embarrassing beauty conditions and had come back handsomely transformed. The Fat Freeze Clinic also offers teeth whiting, fat freeze and weigh loss treatments. To see if they can help you too, call 041 368 9816 or email [email protected] today.
