What are love handles and what do you offer to treat them?
Love handles are the term used to describe the accumulation of excess fat around the hip area. Generally they are caused by a higher percentage of body fat where the build up of cells becomes more apparent in that area. Most of the time, love handles can be decreased with a good diet and exercise but sometimes this isn't enough. If you are struggling to diminish your love handles, Klnik may have the solution for you!
Aqualyx - is a solution which can specifically target fat cells by injection. The body then naturally removes the fat cells through the liver, which results in a permanent reduction in the area.
Cool sculpting - is a treatment which freezes fat cells. This is then naturally removed through the lymphatic system, also permanently removing the excess fat from the area.
Both treatments require a healthy life style to maintain results and a consultation should be carried out for us to determined the best result for you!
