Forget fat reduction, models are now airbrushed to look fatter

May 18, 2010

It seems that women just can’t win – one minute they’re being told they’re too fat, the next minute they’re too thin.

Health gurus Holland and Barratt have recently come under fire for airbrushing a model – not to make her appear slimmer – but to add around half a stone to make her look ‘healthy’.

Here at SkinGenesis, we like to promote health and wellbeing, but we also appreciate that women, and men, come in all shapes and sizes and it’s all about finding a weight, shape and size that you are comfortable with and one that is indeed healthy for you.

We believe that if there wasn’t so much pressure for everyone to achieve this make-believe notion of ‘perfection’, i.e. all looking the same, people would be more comfortable with how they look.

At the same time however, it’s good to have advice and guidance from bodies such as the Department of Health. Tackling obesity is currently a big priority for the Government, encouraging people to achieve a healthy weight for a healthy life.

A balanced diet and regular exercise is a sure-fire way to start shedding the pounds, but sometimes there will be areas of the body where stubborn fat just won’t shift. Usually it’s the hip, thighs, tummy and bottom areas that are the worst culprits.

Certain exercises and machines can work these areas more intensely, and you should consult a fitness instructor to advise on the best regime. Fat reduction treatments, such as Eporex mesotherapy can also assist in getting rid of fat, as part of a healthy weight-loss programme.

Get your perfect beach body safely with fat reduction treatment

April 22, 2010

Leading non-surgical cosmetic specialist SkinGenesis is warning slimmers of the risks of desperate crash diets and exercise regimes in a quest for the perfect beach body ahead of the holiday season.

Peter Beard, director of SkinGenesis is urging people to plan ahead for weightloss attempts to avoid potential health risks caused by last minute crash diets and short-lived intensive exercise regimes.

Peter said: “Sudden bursts of intensive exercise can be a shock to the body and can put it under an unfamiliar amount of strain. Crash diets have a similar effect as they’re usually lacking in essential nutrients and calories, which can actually do more harm than good.

“Everyone likes to look good at the beach, however any attempts to lose weight should be well planned and carried out at a gradual, sensible pace. This will not only provide better results in shedding the pounds, but will ensure that you’re looking after your body and your health too.”

An increasing number of people are also turning to the knife to assist with their weightloss programmes and undergoing surgical operations such as liposuction and tummy tucks.

Expertly developed, alternative fat reduction treatments such as laser and mesotherapy have been used for years to help people get rid of excess fat quickly and naturally when coupled with a sensible exercise regime and a healthy balanced diet.

Mesotherapy has long been the secret of many a Parisian woman who needed to lose body fat and dates back to the 1960s. Now a modern, innovative technique, mesotherapy is a seven week programme and requires zero needles or invasive procedures when it is delivered using a process called Isophoresis.

By introducing small quantities of concentrated natural ingredients normally found in the body, such as amino acids, precisely into the targeted areas, troublesome fat is mobilised with no risk of discomfort, bruising, scabbing or infection.

SkinGenesis is a non-surgical cosmetic expert with clinics in Leeds, Manchester and Chester.
