non-invasive fat blitzing

Quinn Clinics based in Bristol now offers a range of fat-busting, body toning and muscle building treatments that can radically change the profile of the most difficult areas using advanced equipment and technology.  

The Body Contouring Centre is unique in the area, as Quinn Clinics is the only clinic in Bristol and indeed the whole of the South West to offer not one but three advanced non-surgical treatment options, specifically designed for body shaping and toning:

  • CoolSculpting – the famous non-surgical liposuction or ‘fat freezing’ treatment, which uses intense cold to destroy excess fat cells. Treatment could reduce lower abdominal fat cells by 27% after six months.
  • EXILIS ULTRA 360™ – this NEW non-surgical body toning treatment uses ultrasound and radiofrequency to break down fatty deposits then tighten, tone, shape and lift for a firmer and smoother silhouette. This treatment addresses loose skin as well as fat for a great result.
  • EMSCULPT – the latest addition to our Body Contouring Centre is this non-surgical muscle building and fat burning treatment. Stimulating muscle development as well as addressing fat is a great way to promote a leaner and more toned physique and body shape.

The choice of treatments allows clients to choose the most appropriate for their needs, taking into account current shape and tone, desired results, history/background (e.g. weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, injury) and lifestyle factors (e.g. activity, diet). A consultation and discussion with one of Quinn Clinics’ expert team helps to determine the best treatment programme based on all these factors as well as a physical assessment.

The choice of 3 treatments means that there is something for everyone. Treatments can even be combined in a programme that is tailor-made for optimum results – for example, kickstarting the weight loss with CoolSculpting before moving on to develop muscle using EMSCULPT.

Diet & Exercise

The good news is that once fat cells have been destroyed, they’re naturally expelled by the body’s metabolic processes and they’re gone for good. However, in order to maintain best results, it is important to maintain a healthy approach to nutrition, hydration and activity.

Quinn Clinics based at The May Wellness Centre in Bristol also offers services to help clients address those vital lifestyle factors which determine body shape in the longer term:

  • Dietitian & Nutritionist – Sophie Claessens is a highly qualified HCPC Registered Dietitian (dietician) and Nutritionist. She works with clients on a one to one basis, helping them to reach their goals; whether that is weight loss or difficulties with intolerances/allergies.
  • Innervate Private Gym – The May Wellness Centre boasts a fabulously equipped private gym which is designed to support clients every step of their fitness journey, from first nervous class or induction to regular attenders building high levels of fitness. Innervate offers a range of classes and services, including:

So alongside the innovative non-surgical body contouring treatments, the clinic is there to provide the lifestyle services clients need to support their success maintaining results in the longer term.

EMSCULPT-Muscle-and-Fat.jpg
18/Sep/2019

New EMSCULPT™ body toning treatment is now available at Quinn Clinics’ Redland clinic in Bristol.

EMSCULPT logo

This treatment takes a unique approach to refining and reshaping the body helps to refine and reshape the body. Not only does it burn excess fat but it also promotes muscle for a lean and fit profile.

Other body shaping treatments tend to focus on fat or loose skin. By building muscle, EMSCULPT™ offers an additional aspect, helping to create firmer and more toned physique.

It is ideal for clients who already work out or eat well but want to improve shape or tone. Even if you have less than an inch of pinchable fat you could benefit from EMSCULPT™, enhancing body shape through developing muscles as well as getting rid of any excess fat.

Popular treatment options include:

  • Non-invasive bottom lifting – a world first for tighter buttocks without surgery
  • Non-invasive stomach toning –  firmer and more toned abs/stomach area without surgery
  • Non-invasive gynaecomastia – male breast reduction treatment without surgery

EMSCULPT™ might sound too good to be true, but this treatment is backed by extensive clinical evidence and professional reviews.

How Does EMSCULPT™ Work?

The EMSCULPT™ treatment is carried out with high-tech equipment which works to trigger exceptionally powerful muscle contractions. These ‘supramaximal contractions’ are greater than anything achievable through exercise for the majority of people. This muscle contraction puts the muscle tissue under intense conditions and forces it to adapt quickly, promoting deep remodeling of the muscles internal structures as well as burning isolated pockets of fat.

The unique combination of muscle building and fat burning is extremely beneficial to promoting a fit and strong physique.

Once you visit, you’ll soon get into the swing of it and find out that it’s actually not that scary. Especially in a small private gym setting like ours.

But until then, we hope our 5 top gym newbie questions and answers help.

There’s no need to invest in top brand high spec kit. Just choose something cool and comfortable. Leggings or joggers and a t shirt that you feel comfortable in. It’s really not a fashion parade – you’ll be hot and sweaty, so practicality is more important than anything!

Everyone gets an induction in the gym to show you round the equipment and demonstrate how to use it safely and effectively. The PT will gear their tour of the gym to your needs and abilities.

The most important thing is a bottle of water to keep you hydrated. Some people also like to bring a towel to wipe away any sweat.

You can expect some attainable results with a couple of sessions a week, but may then prefer to increase sessions for faster progress. It is so rewarding to see your body respond that many people end up coming more than they’d ever expected.

Yes, absolutely. Please feel free to book a tour. You’ll get to see our fitness studio – it’s small, friendly, non-scary but very well-equipped. You’ll also meet one of our personal trainers, who can answer any questions and put your mind at rest. Just call to arrange an appointment.

EXILIS-ULTRA-360.jpg
18/Sep/2019

EXILIS ULTRA 360

Quinn Clinics is pleased to announce that New EXILIS ULTRA 360™ treatment is now available at the Redland clinic in Bristol.

EXILIS ULTRA 360™ is a unique non-invasive alternative which combines ultrasound and radiofrequency treatment for body shaping and tightening, head to toe; as well as skin rejuvenation and facial treatments.

EXILIS ULTRA 360™

Quinn Clinics has selected the EXILIS ULTRA 360™ as the best, gold standard medical treatment solution for patients looking to achieve results in tightening and toning.

The EXILIS is first and only device to simultaneously combine radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten skin and address body concerns. 

This is ideal for any adult patient looking for cosmetic improvement on the face and body including tightening skin and improving cellulite or lack of tone.

Skin Tightening

  • On average, women will incur 80% of their sun damage prior to turning 20
  • At 20, collagen production will decline by 1% per year and skin thickness will decrease roughly 7% every 10 years
  • EXILIS treatment helps to maintain a more youthful appearance and/or repair skin

Body Shaping

  • 90% of women have cellulite due to fat, fibers, blood flow and fitness levels
  • Cellulite doesn’t necessarily mean you’re overweight – it affects slim people too
  • EXILIS treatment helps to tackle fatty deposits as well as promote new collagen production for smoother, tighter skin
  • This treatment is ideal for use following Coolsculpting, to eliminate further fat cells while triggering a natural lift and contouring the body shape

How Does This Treatment Work?

Radiofrequency and ultrasound energy are delivered to the targeted area, where they warm the layer of excess fat cells and cellulite. The heat breaks down fat cells which are then expelled by the body’s metabolic processes.

In addition to breaking down fatty deposits, the heat stimulates fibroblasts in the skin, building new collagen and elastin for smoother and tighter skin.

Mrs Claire Langton Hewer

Mrs Claire Langton Hewer ENTConsultant ENT Mrs Claire Langton Hewer has joined the team at Quinn Clinics in Bristol, where she will be offering non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose reshaping). 

Mrs Claire Langton Hewer BM BCH (OXON) MA (OXON) FRCS ORL-HNS is very highly qualified and experienced. Her surgical training in London included posts at The Royal Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital and she is a member of the Member of British Rhinological Society  as well as Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England

At Quinn Clinics, she specialises in non-surgical nose reshaping procedures using Juvéderm® VOLUMA, which is one of the latest generation of premium long-lasting dermal fillers.

Why Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Many patients are dissatisfied with the shape of their noses. Common issues include:

  • Bumps or humps
  • Narrow or wide shape
  • Lack of projection
  • Large looking nose
  • Asymmetrical or lopsided shape

Surgery is the best known option but it is radical. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic requiring a hospital stay. Dressings are likely to be required for a week and short term bruising and discomfort are to be expected. Recovery guidelines suggest that it will be a year before everything settles down. It’s expensive too.

Unless there is a medical issue to be resolved, the non-surgical nose job is faster, cheaper, safer and offers instant impact with minimal side effects or recovery issues.

Use of dermal fillers can address many of the common nose shape concerns – even making a large nose look smaller by blending its profile to fit the face better.

Find out more about the NON-SURGICAL NOSE JOB.

Non-Surgical Nose Job Pricing

  • The initial consultation with Mrs Claire Langton Hewer is £50
  • Non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job) using Juvéderm® VOLUMA with Mrs Claire Langton Hewer £700

Quinn Clinics

Quinn Clinics was established in 2006 and offers a full range of cosmetic, medical and laser skin treatments.

As well as the latest anti-ageing injections carried out by qualified and experienced doctors, the clinic can offer the latest laser technology including IPL, laser and CO2 fractional laser and radio-frequency treatment.

Unwanted-Body-Hair.jpg
18/Sep/2019

Hirsutism

Unwanted Body HairMany women suffer from excessive facial which is not only plentiful but often also a thicker texture. 

This can be intensely embarrassing for the patient in a society where the media tends to portray little or no facial hair – the ‘flawless’ look.

So for some women, excessive hair growth can have an impact on confidence and self-esteem.

Understanding Excessive Hair

All hair goes through a growth cycle in 3 phases

  1. Anagen – active growing. This phase lasts 2-6 years – 90% of follicles are normally in this phase
  2. Catagen – transition phase where the hair stops growing and hair shaft loosens from the follicle. This phase lasts 2- weeks
  3. Telogen – where the hair sheds as new growth pushes out the old hair. This phase lasts 6-8 weeks

Patients with excessive facial hair tend to have a longer anagen phase, causing additional hair growth and retention.

Causes & Conditions

For some patients, it is pretty much an ongoing condition, appearing in the teens or even childhood and lasting a lifetime. In this case it could be an inherited tendency to more hair than average.

Where the condition appears in later life, there are a number of possible causes of hirsutism. Major hormonal changes such as the menopause can be a factor, as can PCOS or certain medications. If there is any medical concern (e.g. no apparent reason for sudden facial hair growth), patients can see a GP for advice and possibly tests to understand the cause, which may itself require treatment. Prescription of oral contraceptives is generally the first line, but other medications may be considered according to the diagnosis of any underlying condition.

Reducing Excessive Facial Hair

Whatever the underlying reason for excessive facial hair, many women are keen to reduce the visible growth.

Simple DIY treatment options are:

  • Bleaching
  • Creams
  • Shaving
  • Plucking

However, many patients are keen to seek a longer term solution which diminishes the amount of hair growth going forward.

Long-Term Hair Reduction – Laser Hair Removal

Lasers work to destroy the hair follicle by targeting melanin pigment in the hair with laser energy. The treatment works on hair in its active growth cycle (anagen phase) so a course of sessions is normally advised in order to address the fullest amount of hair growth. The hair may not be removed 100% forever, but it will be removed to a significant degree

LASER HAIR REMOVAL, BRISTOL

Quinn Clinics’ laser hair removal centre in Clifton offers Laser Hair Removal with fully trained staff.  As Quinn Clinics is a doctor owned and led business, clinical standards are very high.

What’s more, if there are concerns about underlying medical conditions, then clinic founder Dr John Quinn is a fully qualified doctor who is on hand to advise if necessary.

FACIAL HAIR SPECIAL OFFER

  • Lip and chin package £200 for course of 6
  • Saves £418 on separate prices
  • (per session costs usually £46 lip, £57 chin)
  • Offer expires end of June 2019
