Despite still wearing my woolly hat and thick coat when I nip to the shops at the moment, the sultry summer months aren’t far from my mind right now. With the worst of winter behind us now (hopefully!), we can all cheer ourselves up a little bit by daydreaming about sipping cocktails by a sun-drenched pool.
Aside from just being a dreamy, feel-good factor, thinking about summertime can also get us pondering over what we’ll be wearing and more importantly, what we’ll look like in it!
Achieving that perfect ‘summer bod’ can be a chore to us all and something we put off, especially as we can cover up our Christmas and winter indulgences with thick, wintery clothing.
But, let’s look at what we can do at Immaculate Touch to help.
Help getting back on track
Aside from trying to trim a few centimetres off our waistlines in preparation for the warmer months and holidays, many of us are also very conscious about how our skin will look.
Fortunately, there are a couple of treatments available at the Immaculate Touch clinic that I thought I’d highlight as a good place to start – and yes, I’ve used them myself too.
1. Morpheus8 body treatment
If you’ve already heard of Morpheus8, you may be under the impression that it’s only used as a skin treatment for the face. But, this isn’t strictly accurate. Whilst it’s true that it works wonders when it comes to smoothing wrinkles and fine lines on the face, it’s also a very effective device when used on the torso, legs and arms as well. If you’d like to see the proof, just have a look at the before and after shots below.
Stretch marks and cellulite
Stretch marks and cellulite can be a real concern as we age. Morpheus 8 is an incredibly effective way to gain firmer skin with improved elasticity. Amazingly, the results are fast.
Fast results and long-lasting effects
You should start to notice results soon after your first session. You will also see improvements continuing for up to 6 months after your treatment(s).
These effects will be long-lasting too and, although everyone’s skin is unique, if you opt for the recommended 3-course treatment plan, you can easily expect to see noticeable results right through the summer months and beyond.
Skin type versatility
I always love treatments that aren’t dependent on the type of skin you have and Morpheus8 ticks this box as well. It uses ‘colour blind’ technology and can therefore be used on all skin types.
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical procedure
The Morpheus8 device consists of 24 tiny coated pins that penetrate into the subdermal tissue to coagulate the fat and contract the connective tissue and it’s this that causes the “morphing” process to happen. You can think of it as an advanced combination of micro-needling and radiofrequency technology. In short, the device stimulates and reactivates your collagen, causing it to contract and become tighter which means there are no scalpels or any other type of invasive procedures to worry about.

2. Profhilo Body
If you’ve heard of Profhilo but aren’t aware of Profhilo Body, then this could be the perfect summer body treatment you’ve been looking for. On its own, Profhilo is a remodeling injectable product designed to hydrate the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and Profilho Body compliments this perfectly. It’s made from the same high-purity hyaluronic acid as the Profhilo facial products but also includes a body patch to soothe and moisturize the skin after your treatment together with a body cream to firm, tone and hydrate the skin.
When the two are combined, they optimise each treatment, helping to achieve truly transformational results on the abdomen, arms, knees and hands. Profhilo Body helps smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, rehydrates loose skin and improves skin elasticity.
Only two treatments needed
For the best results, I recommend two sets of injections, with the second set being about four weeks after the first. That means that now is a great time to book your first session at Immaculate Touch.
Profhilo is a skin hydrator designed to rejuvenate and plump the skin and the improvement in hydration typically develops within 2 to 4 weeks of the injections. After this, your skin will appear much healthier and have a better texture. It should also feel tighter, with lines and wrinkles smoothing out.
Pamper yourself by combining both treatments
If you’re considering Morpheus8 or Profhilo Body to enhance your appearance for the summer of 2023, it needn’t be an either/or choice. Why not go all-out and treat yourself to both?
Profhilo Body can be combined with Morpheus8 meaning that you’re treating all layers of your skin, from the inside out and you’ll get outstanding results that will leave you ready and raring to go for the summer.
