Many people are exhausted with grueling exercise regimes and yoyo diets to have the perfect body they crave for. Appearances form the majority of first impressions and people are often plagued by their physical appearances. With saddle bags, love handles and stubborn unsightly bulges young adults have tried and tested age old procedures that don’t really work. Young men and women now sport wrinkles around the eyes, frown lines, baggy eye lids and double chins that make them look years past their age.
Dr. Manjiri Patankar’s Instasculpt is the miracle that several unhappy people have been waiting for – a safe, reliable, non-surgical procedure that trims away inches in approximately an hour. With inherent fear of injections and incisions, it is but natural that the quick permanent fix that reduces fat and rejuvenates the face is welcome across the country by people looking to look better and feel better about themselves.
An obesity consultant and cosmetic physician, Dr. Majeri is one of India’s renowned doctors who have been able to cover the entire gamut of body, skin and hair management. She has successfully combined breakthroughs in science and technology with advanced treatment procedures in the field of beauty, wellness and weight management.
Under the supervision of Dr. Manjiri Patankar, Instasculpt provides treatment from trained doctors and medical professionals to give people the body they have always dreamed of. The Times met with the good doctor for better insight into Instasculpt and the services offered.
Dr. Patankar explained that the clinic engages in body sculpting which is done with a combination of ultrasonic Lipolysis with High Intensity Focalized Ultrasound (HIFU), Lipolift, Endermology and Mesotherapy which rids clients of up to 1-3 inches from the abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs within an hour. Instasculpt also offer face sculpting, she said, highlighting that the clinic uses bipolar radio Frequency (RF) with Diode Laser which is a US FDA approved non-surgical technique that repairs skin damage caused by ageing and restores the skins elasticity, tonicity and complexion. The procedure works wonders on acne, double chin, puffy face, wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, dark circles and hyper pigmentation.
An expert in abdominal obesity, Dr. Patankar explained that obesity is the excess of fat storage rather than weight which accounts for more than 25 percent of total body fat in men and 30 percent in women. Obesity can be attributed to heredity, age, sex, diet, lifestyle, psychology and behavior patterns.
The doctor confirmed that the fat loss from the procedure is permanent. Unlike dieting and exercising which only reduces the size of the fat cell, Ultrasonic Lipolysis actually reduces the number of fat cells in your body. Fat cells do not increase in number after maturity, so the loss is permanent, she said.
Instasculpt also uses Mesotherapy, which is a safe and effective non surgical treatment wherein customized mixture of vitamins, amino acids and naturals extracts are delivered into the Mesoderm by electrophoresis. It is used to eliminate cellulite, promote weight loss, treat hair loss, aging skin, and rejuvante face and neck. It treats cosmetic conditions like, acne, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles, explained Dr. Patankar. Many women suffer from cellulite which are fatty deposits also known as orange-peel. It is a combination of fat, waste and water forming a lumpy rippled mass trapped in the fibrous connective tissue beneath the skin. While diet and exercise do little to help this problem, mesotherapy rids the body of this common condition.
The doctor went on to explain how Endermologie is used as a facial treatment as it is an effective detoxifying drainage for revitalization and oxygenation of tissue. By stimulating the production of new collagen fibers, it can improve skin tone and slow down the aging of the skin.
It improves micro circulation and causes rejuvenation of face, she said. Because there are variations in results based on body type, number and size of fat cells, Dr. Patankar has conducted a multi-racial study that has spanned three years with 5000 participants that has been internationally presented and published. Results support that different ethnicities experience different percentages of mass lost as a result of the treatment, with persons of Arab origin losing an average of one percent in total body fat and Indians losing 0.80 percent.
“Kuwait has the third highest rate of diabetes in the world”, she said with over 36 percent of men and 48 percent of women suffering from obesity,” she highlighted. According to the doctor, Kuwait needs a lifestyle change to change these numbers.
Instasculpt has received a great response in Kuwait, as higher calorific intake and sedentary lifestyles have contributed significantly to weight issues. “A second clinic is scheduled to open in Kuwait to cater to the major influx of clients,” Dr. Patankar stated. Ideal clients include people who have tried all other means of weight loss, have lost weight but are now not losing anymore, people who have stubborn areas of fat or cellulite but are not obese and people who are unable to diet or exercise and their extra weight is posing a danger to their health.
In conclusion the doctor explained her philosophy in simple words, “Add life to your years,” she said, “not just years to your life.”
