Dr Joseph Ajaka explains the difference between Liquid and Vaser Liposuction

Liquid Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction are the two most popular forms of tumescent liposuction available today. Dr Joseph Ajaka explains that this is due to their safety, accuracy and minimal downtime. Using the power of water to separate fat cells Liquid Liposuction is a gentle way of shaping the body, whereas Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasonic energy to separate and remove fat cells.

Dr Joseph Ajaka utilises both methods and either technique will allow him to rid you of those stubborn areas of fat that no matter how much you watch your diet or how many times you go to the gym you still cannot shift.  Dr Joseph Ajaka’s patients are able to stand during the procedure to enable him to sculpt you accurately and both methods deliver smooth natural results.

With most patients back to work within 1-3 days, both Liquid Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction are very safe with minimal downtime and scarring. These cutting edge liposuction treatments will permanently remove your fat cells and contour your body to your desired shape!

Note: Liquid Liposuction is no longer available and has been superseded by Vaser Liposuction.

Dr Joseph Ajaka reveals more on the Laser Face Lift

Droopy loose jowels and saggy skin can add years to a face and make you feel much older than you really are. Dr Joseph Ajaka understands that many patients aren’t quite ready for the cost or downtime of a traditional face lift. This is where the state of the art Laser Face Lift is an alternative option; delivering results to patients who are suffering from heavy jowels, loose skin, and chubby cheeks.

The Laser Face Lift involves the insertion of a fine laser fibre under the surface of the skin. It uses the latest infrared technology to warm up the deep skin tissues, melt fat cells and tighten the collagen fibres resulting in an improvement in your jowls and facial shape. The procedure does not require a general anaesthetic, there is a mild sedation and minimal scaring. The incision sites are tiny, beside your ears and tucked under your chin and they fade to nothing in time.  Performed as a day case procedure and most patients are back to work within 1-2 days! Dr Joseph Ajaka believes the Laser Face Lift is a break through treatment that does not require the removal of any skin and for a fraction of the cost of a traditional face lift.

Calf Contouring

Suffering from excessive muscles in your calves due to genetics, exercise or sports? Many people struggle with cramps and pain due to bulky muscular calves. Muscle relaxant injections can be used to reduce cramping and discomfort whilst creating a slimmer appearance to the calf.

Contouring a slimmer calf is not a surgical procedure but is a treatment performed using a muscle relaxant injection. It is a walk in/ walk out treatment with results taking around 2 weeks to appear and lasting on average 8 to 12 months. The final result is a slim and streamlined calf, creating an overall thinner appearance to the leg.

This treatment is very popular amongst very fit females who train often at the gym or some other form of exercise.

What non-invasive liposuction options are there?

At Cosmos Clinic Canberra, at least 3 in 10 patients who are interested in weight loss procedures do not want any form on invasive procedure, no matter how minimal it may be. Most of the time, these patients have tried a range of other non-invasive treatments however all have the same feedback…within a short period they gained the weight back.

Why is this? Well most non-invasive technologies simply suck you dry i.e. they suck the water out of your body so you look thinner when you leave, however you have not actually lost any fat cells!

Not to worry, there are technologies which are medically based and do work. At Cosmos Clinic we use CoolSculpting. Developed by Harved Researchers who discovered that when exposed to freezing temperatures, fat cells die and are permanently removed from the body. This technology has been around for 2-3 years now and the results our patients have experienced are positive.

Obviously they are not as obvious as say a invasive procedure however still effective. If you are afraid of an invasive procedure however still have areas of fat that wont budge, then CoolSculpting is an effective form of treatment.

Skin Needling

Does your skin need a serious overhaul but you don’t have the time to hide away after fraxel laser? The e-Dermastamp is a cutting-edge skin needling system offering dramatic results with minimal downtime.

The e-Dermastamp causes skin regeneration, induces collagen, and treats fine lines, wrinkles, pigment discolouration, pore size and acne scarring. The treatment stimulates new tissue formation by the use of micro-fine needles. These pierce the collagen fibers thus stimulating new growth. The skin remains intact and is not damaged; this promotes constructive regeneration not wound healing and significantly improves skin texture.

There is no skin burning, results can be seen after one treatment and improvements continue over 6-12 months. When combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) the results are accelerated further. The PRP provides additional benefits of stem cells and growth factors contained in the platelets. Skin will appear youthful, with a more refined texture and even tone. This excellent treatment offers real results without the need to hide away after.
