A brand new, non-invasive inch loss clinic – the first of its kind in Northern Ireland – has arrived in Belfast with ambitions to give the city a leaner, more svelte silhouette. Bellaze, situated on Donegall Street in the city centre, uses the renowned Body Sculpting system from inch loss expert Tina O’Doherty’s clinics in Scotland. Since opening her first clinic in Scotland ten years ago, a total of over 500,000 treatments have been completed on over 40,000 clients, with each losing an average number of 8-12 inches.
Michael Curran, the person behind bringing Tina’s number one products to Ireland said: “We know that there is an appetite (if you’ll excuse the pun) for looking and feeling slim. It really makes such a difference to a person’s health, vitality and quality of life, so to achieve a slimmer silhouette in such an easy and low impact way is perfect for those who have a goal such as a wedding or just a longer term game plan to get fit and lose the bulge.”
Lipo Sculpting is the first part of the treatment where a laser beam is targeted on the area of the body identified to be treated. The cold laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events take place. Firstly, pores form on the cells and this causes the water, glycerol and fatty acids contained within the cells to spill out. This is then removed from the body through the lymphatic system and processed in the same way as fatty foods are digested. The remaining fat cells are significantly reduced in size.
This is then followed by Electrolite and Thermoshape treatments that use electrical impulses and heat to work various targeted muscle groups.
Electrolite was used originally for the healing of muscles and surrounding tissues, but it became apparent that the visual effect of this treatment was the improvement of the body contours. At the average intensity setting, the exercise value derived from this 20 minute session will be equivalent to 4000 exercise movements (such as sit-ups or push-ups). This all takes place while relaxing watching television or reading a magazine in the brand new, state of the art city centre clinic.
Thermoshape is also carried out at the same time as the Electrolite treatment and uses relaxing therapeutic heat. Heating the muscles produces an increased blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.
To get the most benefit out of these treatments, it is recommended that clients use one of the Body Sculpting courses available at Bellaze, which combine the treatments and maximise results.
There are three Body Sculpting courses available from silver to platinum all designed to achieve results, but all suited to different body types and budgets.
On average clients lose between 8-12 inches after completing a full four week course but individual results may be higher or lower. Plus, to retain the results achieved with Body Sculpting, consideration must be taken into the type and amount of food and drink that is consumed, along with the amount of exercise the client does. To help with this, an exclusive and fully specialised French diet programme Nutrisaveurs is also available to complement all the treatments at Bellaze.
Director of Bellaze Michael Curran said: “I am delighted to have opened the first inch loss clinic here in Northern Ireland using the renowned Body Sculpting system, from Tina O’Doherty’s clinic. The treatments work really well and I have seen some great results achieved, including on my own body, so I am very excited to be working with members of the public to create excellent weight loss targets here in Belfast.
“Already the interest in the clinic has been phenomenal, and we have clients well on their way to achieving their goal.”
