Scientific and technological advancements in the medical field are making almost-magical patient requests come true.


The new treatments allow for apparent results in no time, using quite advanced machinery in a seamless and painless manner on the patients.


One such technique that has been attracting attention is the slim shot treatments offered at Bionix Body Designer, located in Dubai.


“The slim shot is a non-surgical face, neck and body treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin without any down-time. Both men and women are demanding this treatment and it is equally effective for both genders,” SL Paul, owner and managing director at Bionix Body Designer, told Aficionado.


“Today’s hustle and bustle demands a lot from a person and, while we try to meet these demands, we compromise on our aesthetics. It doesn’t really matter what gender you are; the desire to look the best is what drives us and helps us compete in this world. We want something that is immediate and doesn’t leave us with any side-effects or down-time,” Paul added.

Weight loss


A slim shot procedure performed on a body area such as the abdomen, for example, takes approximately 45 minutes, during which hundreds ultrasound ‘shots’ are beamed through the area.


The machine used has different intensities, ranging from one, the least intense and lightest, to five, which is the highest intensity level. The level can be adjusted as per clients’ preference.


Aficionado got the chance to review the slim shot treatment by undergoing one session. The treatment is painless and only a slight sensation of heat can be felt when the machine is used at higher intensity levels – and this also depends on the client.


A measurement taken right after the session showed immediate results of several centimetres that would have been lost from the area. Moreover, for two weeks after undergoing the treatment, clients are advised to drink large quantities of water as fats continue to melt, allowing more for more weight loss.


Non-surgical lifting


“A good candidate for the slim shot is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of looking and, often, feeling less firm,” Paul explained. In the facial area, this can be a lowered brow line, a sagging skin on the eyelids, which can be lifted through the slim shot treatment.


“While the slim shot is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically,” Paul added.


The Intraceuticals oxygen-based facial and the 45-minute slim shot are two of the highest demanded treatments at Bionix Dubai.


The Intraceuticals treatment focuses on smoothening wrinkles, plumping and removing expression lines, and lifting the skin around the forehead, eyes, nasal folds and lip areas. This is aimed to be a non-surgical alternative to Botox injections and fillers.


According to Paul, Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities, such as Preity Zinta, Victoria Bartlett, Kim Kardashian, Gina Brooke and many more are currently using Intraceuticals treatments.
