What Does a Mummy Tummy Makeover Consist Of?

 

The Mummy Tummy Makeover at Dr Leah Cosmetic Skin Clinics successfully targets the appearance of loose skin and stretch marks left over from pregnancy or dramatic weight loss – without the risks and downtime involved with invasive surgical options.

 

The Process

 

The process of undergoing a Mummy Tummy Makeover involves several appointments; 

 

  • Appointment 1 Initial Body Consultation - FREE

 

During your Initial Body Consultation, a patch test is completed to ensure suitability for the treatment course. 48 hours after your initial consultation, your treatment course will begin. 

 

  • Appointment 2 - One iPixel or Dermapen Session

 

iPixel 

 

As we age, the tone and texture of our skin changes. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear, age spots and blemishes may develop, and the texture of our skin can become coarse and uneven. To combat this, we use light and laser-based skin resurfacing technologies to smooth out and balance the skin texture, tone and elasticity. Our iPixel employs a fractional delivery method which creates pixel-sized perforations in the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows the skin to heal faster as the epidermis is regenerated. 

 

Dermapen 

 

Dermapen is the industry leading microneeding device, it is a skin repair treatment that can help to significantly improve the appearance of ageing or scarred skin. It uses tiny needles attached to a pen device to gently puncture the skin causing a series of traumatic punctures on the skin. The result of this is that the skin responds to this by naturally producing collagen and elastin to repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin work to smooth and firm the skin, plumping out deep lines and improving the indented or red appearance of scars and stretch marks.

 

  • Appointments 3 to 8 - Six Radiofrequency Sessions 

 

Radiofrequency

 

Our radiofrequency utilises electrodes to deliver the Radiofrequency energy under the skin (which is controlled and limited to the treatment area). Radio frequency helps to concentrate the body’s collagen fibres and encourages the quick regeneration of the collagen and elastin that we lose as we age. This results in a firmer, more youthful look.

 

  • Appointment 8 - One iPixel or Dermapen 

 Finally, the area of concern is treated with another powerful iPixel or Dermapen session to further enhance the tightening effect provided by the Radiofrequency. 

 

Clare's Story

Clare, 33.

 

“I had my little girl when I was 18 and after the birth my weight ballooned and I went up to a size 22 quickly which left a lot of stretch marks. I had my son five years later, and following this I worked really hard and got down to a size 8/10. Fast forward 10 years and while my stomach isn’t bad enough that I wanted a tummy tuck, the weight loss means the skin is much worse. I wanted a treatment that would help but not be too invasive, so when I saw on her Instagram that they offer a mummy tummy treatment I knew this would be for me! I went to speak to Dr Leah about the treatment and trusted her straight away, because she is medically trained as well I feel it gives you more confidence.

Because I had my daughter so young, I’ve never actually appreciated having a nice stomach with no stretch marks so it’s nice to have it now. I can’t recommend this treatment enough!”

Dermapen is the industry leading microneeding device, which is a skin repair treatment that can help to significantly improve the appearance of ageing or scarred skin. It uses tiny needles attached to a pen device to gently puncture the skin causing a series of traumatic punctures on the skin. The result of this is that the skin responds to this by naturally producing collagen and elastin to repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin work to smooth and firm the skin, plumping out deep lines and improving the indented or red appearance of scars and stretch marks. 

The process of having Dermapen at Dr Leah Cosmetic Skin Clinics will involve an initial face to face consultation with one of our expertly trained Skin Specialists, who will assess your skin and will be able to advise how many Dermapen sessions you will need to achieve your skin goals (usually, this is between 3-6 treatments). 

Dermapen is less invasive than many alternative solutions and you can normally return to your daily activities straight away after treatment, although you may have some mild redness or swelling. 

Dermapen is an effective treatment for the following concerns;

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Acne scarring

  • Facial scarring

  • Enlarged pores

As well as the face, Dermapen is also suitable for the following concerns on the body;

  • Sagging skin

  • Stretch marks

How does it work? 

Dermapen uses a microneedling technique to create small, gentle punctures in the skin - the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. 

How many treatments will I need? 

Results are visible following 6 weeks after your initial appointment. For best results, a course of 3 -8 treatments are recommended depending on your skin concerns; 
Skin rejuvenation & Large Pores – 3 treatments recommended 
Acne Scarring & Surgical Scars – 6 treatments recommended 
Loose Skin - 6-8 treatments recommended 

How long will it take? 

The Dermapen session itself lasts for around 20 minutes (although this may vary depending on which part of your body we treat. For example, a stomach treatment will take more time than a facial treatment.)

Who is not suitable for this treatment? 

Before any treatment you will be given the opportunity to consult with a member of the Dr Leah team, who will be able to advise further on any concerns you may have prior to commencing treatment. However, this treatment is not suitable for pregnant and breast-feeding women and those that suffer from keloid scarring.
