Ok so my daughter is aged 15 and 5’9 with a body like a show pony! But she has been doing ballet since the age of three so its to be expected really.
When its holiday time for me its also diet time. Yes she's my daughter but I have to be next to this young hot body on the beach. On out last holiday to Gran Canaria she told me I’d gained weight. I reminded her that I was over 40 and had given birth to her and her elder brother.
She then chucked a bombshell at me and reminded me of the fact she was 15 and I’d had 15 years to get back in shape! My ego had been shattered but I did have to giggle! She was right! I had no excuse! It was time to tone up and sort it out! We keep being told 40 is the new 30 so I need my 30 year old body back!
Is this achievable you ask? Yes it can be if we eat a good diet, increase our exercise. Its not easy, nothing is but if you really want it you can get it. Oh and there are many treatments on the market cashing in on us feeling this way. What works? What is a waste of time?
Over the next few weeks I’ll be trying out some body treatments and seeing if they work and I’ll be reporting back to you my honest views. So lets start with the saggy inside thighs and the dreaded cellulite. We all know (young or old) how difficult it can be to tone this area. I visited Karolina at the Dr Karidis clinic in St Johns Wood.
I couldn't decide what treatment I was best for me so was invited in for a consultation. Karolina gave me a full consultation that included discussing my medical history and my diet but she was also very interested in what I really wanted to achieve and how realistic my expectations were. She advised me to have a course of Velashape II treatments. Velapshape II is a non-invasive, deep body contouring treatment that has no downtime.
VelaShape uses a combination of IR (infrared), Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and manipulates and stimulates the tissue using pulsing vacuum and massage rollers. These work together to cause deep heating of the connective tissues, which promotes an increase in collagen and cellular metabolism. It also increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, resulting in a reduction of skin laxity and volume on the treated area. Karolina explained this machine has been clinically proven globally by independent research to lessen the appearance of cellulite, aid inch-loss and define the body. I needed one treatment every 2 weeks. I also needed to drink lots of water afterwards and eat a healthy diet.
I would see a difference in the skin on my thighs in about 2 weeks after the treatment. So I went ahead. This treatment wasn't painful. It sucks the fatty tissue and the skin is deeply heated and intensely massaged by the machine. Sometimes it got very warm but this was closely monitored by Karolina. My thighs were warm for a the rest of the day but not at all uncomfortable.
As soon as I got home I squeezed the skin on my thighs and I can honestly say I saw immediately there were less dimples! I was hooked! This works!! My second treatment was immediately booked and I can truly say I now have very few dimples and the saggy droopy skin at the lower part of my thighs is so much less! Now, where are my shorts?!
