Bright and Even : How to get a glowing complexion

Lacklustre, dull and uneven skin can be disheartening and for many it can feel like there is no solution. Revere started working with Pico Genesis™ after noticing a growth in demand for skin brightening and seeing only unsafe options that did not provide the results that they felt our customers deserved. The Best Aesthetic Doctors of the Year, Revere are dedicated to bringing customers the best in new and innovative treatments and both Pico Genesis™ and Pico Genesis FX™ are game-changers in the world of skin brightening.

Most skin lightening treatments are not FDA approved and can cause irreparable damage to the skin, and in some cases damage to vital organs. According to a report by the British Skin Foundation, ingredients such as Hydroquinone, which are often rife in skin lightening treatments, can damage elastin strands in the skin, causing premature ageing and weakening of skin. Long term, widespread use can cause problems with the nerves and liver.

Pico Genesis™ works by targeting the excess melanin in the skin, as in high concentrations, melanin can cause dark spots and uneven patches. During the Pico Genesis™ procedure, the laser light is absorbed by the melanin, which causes it to break down into tiny particles which are either sloughed off or absorbed into the body – leaving your skin lighter, brighter and more even.

Revere are dedicated bringing their clients the safest and best treatments available, it is this level of care that separates Revere from the competition, both treatments have been championed by Dr Sach Mohan and Dr Sabika Karim, founders of the award-winning Revere clinics, with Revere being the first UK clinic to offer the treatments. Revere also acts as the training academy on this specialist procedure for practitioners across Europe.

Pico Genesis™ uses the latest generation of non-thermal, photo-mechanical picosecond laser, and focuses on breaking apart melanin to give you a brighter, more even complexion, ridding your skin of sunspots, pigmentation and unwanted freckles. Patients have reported seeing brighter skin in just 24 hours, with the full results of the treatment visible in just three weeks.

Pico Genesis FX™ improves the texture of the skin – gone are those nasty scars and in its place smooth, glowing skin. Using a laser that is split through a honeycomb-like structure, Pico
Genesis FX™ penetrates deeper into the skin, creating a natural regeneration over the 72 hour period after treatment.
For both treatments patients have said that their skin is not only smoother, but lighter and brighter than ever.

Whichever treatment you choose to help you achieve your skin goals, Revere’s team are dedicated to providing the best care possible. No two people are the same and therefore it is important to have a bespoke treatment plan, to ensure that you can achieve the results you want and more importantly deserve.

Myth Busting : Do men find it easier to lose weight?

Everyone has that one friend that is certain that the world is against them, the friend who fights that despite eating healthier, exercising more and generally taking better care of herself, the reason she is not losing weight is not down to the chocolate biscuits she is sneaking at midnight out of the jar, but the fundamental genes that define her gender. Now, whilst you may never want to tell her this, as you may never hear the end of it, there is some truth to her claims – Men do lose weight faster than Women.

Now while this may sound bizarre, to start with, our bodies are made up differently. This means that on average, men have much larger bodies that women, with proportionally more muscle mass. By extension, this makes it a lot easier to burn calories, and therefore at a much faster rate.

Furthermore, hormones also play a part in this cruel trick of fate. Testosterone, which is the primary male sex hormone, supports muscle growth in the body which sequentially creates muscle tissue that burns more calories. Women’s estrogen, however, has the opposite effect.

Estrogen encourages Women to hold on to weight, making it harder to shed those stubborn pounds. It is inherently in a women’s makeup to store excess body fat, parts of their bodies, such as breasts, thighs and hips all contain a high fat to muscle ratio, therefore making it harder to shift from these difficult to reach areas.

Even the way we gain weight is different. Ever heard that phrase Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars, well after hearing this, you might just believe it. When Men put on a few pounds, it tends to go to their abdominal areas, causing the ever faithful beer belly, and when they lose weight, it just comes straight off from there. However, when a Woman puts on weight, it ordinarily hits all areas of the body. Leaving no stone unturned, ravishing the female figure like moths to a flame. Therefore, it makes it more difficult to be able to tell where weight loss is coming from, which can be disheartening and upsetting for many.

This being said, for many Men the pounds go straight to upper body, causing dreaded man boobs, which can be difficult to shift with exercise and diet alone.

The technical term for man boobs is pseudogynecomastia, and it describes an excess of fatty tissue in the chest.  Affecting between 40-50% of men at some point in their lifetimes.

For both Men and Women there are those patches of fat that are just more persistent, and cannot be shifted through simply exercise and diet alone.

So what does all of this mean?

Firstly, this is not suggesting either gender cannot and do not lose weight, just that for many they cannot get the radical results they desire from diet and exercise alone. Every cloud however, does have a silver lining, CoolSculpting is not gender specific and works best on those stubborn patches of fat that just won’t budge. An FDA approved non-invasive procedure, it works by precisely freezing the fat cells which, by extension, die, causing no damage to the rest of the body and unveiling a more chiselled and toned you.

So don’t let physiology get you down and contact Revere today for more information about CoolSculpting.

Men now make up almost 10% of all minimally invasive surgeries and even more than that here at Revere.  Unwanted fat is not gender specific and CoolSculpting is particularly targeted at removing those stubborn patches that just don’t seem to want to budge. Patches like man boobs, that despite repeated exercise, good diet and doing everything by the book, just will not shift. These kinds of areas are perfect for CoolSculpting.

The technical term for man boobs is pseudogynecomastia, and it describes an excess of fatty tissue in the chest.  Affecting between 40-50% of men at some point in their lifetimes we understand that this can be really embarrassing, and that asking for help can feel scary, almost like you are giving up, but we are here to dispel that myth. CoolSculpting is not and never will be giving up; Some patches of fat are more persistent than others, and simply cannot be shifted through exercise and diet alone.

CoolSculpting provides a surgery free option to Liposuction whilst still promising results, it has been performed over 8 million times and is FDA cleared. CoolSculpting works by freezing those stubborn fat cells,  breaking them down and giving you a more sculpted, contoured look. Minimally invasive, with little side effects, CoolSculpting is perfect for the man who wants more definition.

Unlike invasive surgeries such as Liposuction, CoolSculpting does not require any anesthetic, and therefore downtime is significantly less, with most patients feeling no pain at all. All you need to do is sit back, enjoy Netflix, and start planning your new wardrobe. The recovery time is unbelievably quick, with some of our patients going straight back to work.

Think about it  – you could take a leisurely lunch and without anyone knowing come back, closer to a more toned you.  Some patients see results as quickly as three weeks, but most see results over a three month period, all with no one the wiser.

At Revere we understand that everyone is different, and as such, each treatment plan created is bespoke. One of the many things that separates Revere from the rest is our specialised mapping technique, which ensures that you get the best possible results from CoolSculpting, and the results that you deserve and want. We will never do something we don’t believe is right, and in your consultation we will go over your overall goals, ensuring that we have suggested the correct treatment, just for you.  After all, here at Revere we want you to not only look different, but most importantly, feel different.
