SculpSure Laser Treatment with Dr Kiren - KVL Cosmetic Clinics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The SculpSure Laser treatment uses heat generated by laser to remove fat cells permanently. Studies show you can reduce fat from the targeted area by an average of 24%.

The hips, arms, thighs, abdomen, lower back and that extra fullness that develops under the chin are all areas that can be treated. You will initially experience coolness, but as the laser energy does its work you may start to feel a comfortable warmth and tingling. Most treatments last about 25 minutes, and patients often spend their time reading or relaxing.

The four applicators will be placed against your body in an arrangement that best addresses your cosmetic concerns. This is a highly convenient treatment that does not require any time for recovery. Some patients even schedule their sessions during their lunch hour.

Although the laser heat will kill fat cells during your appointment, it takes some time for the body to flush those cells out. Many patients start to see improvement in the treatment area roughly 6 weeks after their session. You won’t have to worry about those fat cells returning. Eating right and exercising will augment and quicken the results process. Massaging the treatment area after your appointment is a way of increasing blood flow and encouraging those damaged fat cells to flush out from your system.

If you’re ready to finally take action and get rid of problem spots that just won’t seem to budge, we can help. This laser-based treatment system is a convenient and effective way of melting fat away. What are you waiting for?

Dr Sudeep - Paediatric Endocrinologist 

Dr Sudeep will begin consulting once a month on Friday from 14th May 2021. She is a Paediatric Endrocrinologist with special interest in Type 1 Diabetes & Insulin Pump Therapy.

April 12, 2021 Specialists

By Dr Philip Dupre - Orthopaedic Surgeon

This condition invariably presents in adoles­cence and mainly affects girls. The first disloca­tion usually occurs with a twisting movement while the knee is in slight flexion. Reduction is often spontaneous so diagnosis of what has happened may not be obvious.

There is always tenderness medial to the patella where the capsule has been torn and severe apprehension is demonstrated if the patella is gently pushed laterally while flexing the knee. (Apprehension test).

Following the initial dislocation, recurrence is common, because the medial patello-femoral ligament and capsule have been torn and stretched. Physiotherapy is usually arranged initially in order to strengthen the medial quadri­ceps muscle. Operative correction is required if the problem becomes recurrent and fails to re­spond to conservative measures.

The aim of surgery is to tighten the medial cap­sule and release the lateral. More severe cases may require realignment of the patellar tendon.

An alternative to operative treatment is to con­tract and strengthen the medial capsule and patello-femoral ligament by injecting a mixture of 50% glucose solution mixed with local anaes­thetic in equal parts. This has the effect of causing an inflammatory reaction which con­tracts and thickens connective tissues.

The technique is to infiltrate 3mls. of this mix­ture into the medial patello-femoral ligament which lies supero-medial to the patella. Symptomatic improvement is usually noticed about a week later and repeat injections may be necessary at 3 to 4 week intervals which will give successive improvement.

About 3 to 4 injections are usually required over the next few weeks or months to give complete stability and symptomatic relief.

In older patients with patello-femoral pain, the same principle applies if skyline x-rays of the patella show lateral shift or malalignment.
