06 March Body Contouring
River Aesthetics, the ultimate in body contouring.
The body you want, down to the last curve.
Losing weight and feeling like you can walk confidently down the beach in a bikini has always been the ever-elusive goal of many a woman (and an equally significant number of men to boot but not in bikinis)! But maintaining an ideal weight is strenuous, and losing weight is even more stressful, if not downright impossible for some.
When diet and exercise are not enough, there are options for you and a lot of our patients are turning to non-invasive body contouring procedures to eliminate stubborn, unwanted fat, cellulite and muscle toning.
Approximately 100% of women and 50% of men are dissatisfied with their body image.
River Aesthetics is proud to offer a full suite of body contouring technology to cater for all your needs. We are constantly trying to improve our offerings to you and from our recent market research, body contouring came up trumps.
So where do we start?
Well some exciting news; Dr Victoria Manning and Dr Charlotte Woodward are constantly looking for innovations in the market and have recently partnered with Cutera, a large US company who specialise in ground breaking laser and body sculpting technology. River Aesthetics are delighted to have been chosen to launch two new body contouring machines into the UK market; the truSculpt®ID and the truSculpt® flex.
truSculpt® iD, a revolutionary non-surgical, body-sculpting treatment that allows you to personalize your ideal body in as little as one 15-minute treatment.
truSculpt® iD is a safe and effective technology that is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks. You can get the body definition you want, even in areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise.
This powerful, non-invasive, monopolar RF platform treats up to a 300 cm2 area on the abdomen and flanks with a fast, 15-minute protocol. truSculpt® iD treatments can be tailored to your body contouring desires. Real-Time Temperature Control enhances your experience, providing a comfortable, yet effective treatment resulting in an average of 24% fat reduction. This non-invasive procedure is ideal for your busy lifestyle giving you the freedom to return to your daily activities immediately following the treatment.
The super exciting news is yet to come.
What if we told you, that you could achieve sculpted, toned abdominals, lifted, firm buttocks, or strong, leg-defining thighs, all without hitting extra hours to your gym routine? You may say it’s too good to be true:
Not so; River Aesthetics is the first clinic in the UK and Europe to introduce truSculpt® Flex. Dr Victoria Manning and Dr Charlotte Woodward have been chosen to be the brand ambassadors for the device.
It is a revolutionary, non-invasive sculpting treatment that tones the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms or calves to deliver impressive, athletic results.
truSculpt® flex is a personalized muscle sculpting treatment that adjusts to your ﬁtness level, shape, and goals to strengthen, ﬁrm, and tone your muscles. The unique Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) technology delivers three treatment options by replicating intensiﬁed crunch, squat and twisting actions.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER MUSCLE SCULPTING PROCEDURES?
truSculpt® Flex enables you to tone and sculpt multiple areas of your body at once unlike EMSculpt! Up to EIGHT muscle groups can be treated simultaneously in a single treatment session, rather than the ONE or TWO muscle groups treated with EMSculpt. Your treatment will be customized to the unique needs of your muscles and your desired outcomes. Your body will receive the benefit of an intense workout, all while you lie comfortably.
truSculpt® Flex’s treatment stimulates muscle contractions over three stages:
- Prep Mode: The equivalent of stretching your muscles before a workout, Prep Mode warms up the muscles with a twisting motion and prepares them to get the most benefit from the toning and sculpting contractions.
- Tone Mode: Stimulates muscles to build strength and muscle endurance. Tone Mode contracts, holds, and then relaxes the muscles.
- Sculpt Mode: Builds new muscle fibres and improves your metabolic rate. Sculpt Mode emits fast, deep contractions in sequence and creates more definition in the treated area
This means that multiple treatment protocols can be used depending on your requirements. If you have had an injury and need to rebuild muscle, or you want to tone your muscles, or you just want to workout harder in the gym…There is a solution for you.

This by no means dilutes our existing offerings, including the world’s number 1 in fat freezing; CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is ideal for treating pockets of fat; the saying goes if you can squeeze it we can freeze it…
The CoolSculpting* procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat freezing treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet-and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle. It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat, and once treated, the fat cells are gone for good.
CoolSculpting safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
Lastly, to get beach ready, we have our BTL Unison, the ultimate device to treat cellulite.
Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. It’s sometimes described as having a cottage cheese or orange peel texture.
The condition is most common in women.
Many people try, with variable success, to improve the appearance of their skin through weight loss, exercise, massage, and creams marketed as a solution to cellulite.
You can see mild cellulite only if you pinch your skin in an area where you have cellulite, such as your thighs. Cellulite that is more severe makes the skin appear rumpled and bumpy with areas of peaks and valleys.
Cellulite is most common around the thighs and buttocks, but it can also be found on the breasts, lower abdomen and upper arms.
BTL Unison® is a revolutionary treatment which fights the 5 causes of cellulite. This can be used on all kinds of cellulite and on all body types.
BTL Unison® combines radio frequency and strong targeted pressure energy simultaneously to get rid of cellulite. The treatment diminishes fatty chambers, remodels collagen, restores skin elasticity, enhances blood flow, and increases metabolic waste removal. The practitioner will use a hand piece over the treatment area, which feels like a hot massage with mechanical vibrations.
