Cheshire’s ‘Fairy Godmother’ explains how cosmetic treatments no longer mean going under the knife Cheshire Life: January 2019
With advances in technology and techniques, an increasing number of people are now opting for nonsurgical procedures over invasive cosmetic surgery which can often carry an element of risk, as well as lengthy recovery time.
Katie Alex, a specialist nurse with more than ten years’ experience has founded the luxury private clinic Katie Alex Aesthetics, in Bowdon, which offers a wide range of noninvasive treatments for clients across the country.
Her reputation for outstanding results has earned her the nickname of the ‘Cheshire Fairy Godmother’ as she is one of only a select few nationwide offering clients the Exilis Ultra-femme 360 treatment, which deals with problems involving a woman’s intimate area, such as vaginal laxity and stress urinary incontinence.
The treatment is one that Katie calls ‘Vajuvenation’ and it can put an end to the misery endured by thousands of women who have had to suffer in silence. This nonsurgical alternative to labiaplasty and vaginoplasty uses painless radiofrequency and the results are instant, with no downtime required.
Katie explains: ‘The Exilis Ultra-femme 360 can transform women’s intimate health. It can help with women who are dealing with vagina dysmorphia; who don’t have confidence. Whether it’s from childbirth, age or stress. It works through heating up the temperature to over 40°C in the target tissue. The increased blood flow plays a crucial role in tightening the target tissue.
‘I want to help eradicate the taboo surrounding these issues, proving to women that they aren’t alone and there is a simple riskfree procedure available. There is no pain involved, no recovery time; you could even have the procedure during your lunch break and return to work straight after. Stars such as Jada Pickett Smith have recently admitted to having the procedure and are delighted with their results,’
As well as this specialist treatment, Katie offers aesthetic procedures, such as injectible fillers, non invasive anti wrinkle treatments and fat reduction.
Fat reduction works through the use of radiofrequency which heats up the fatty layers. Ultrasound energy enhances the penetration of the radiofrequency into the fatty tissue causing the fat cells to release part of their volume into the extracellular space leading to fat cell death. The lymphatic system then safely eliminates these cells.
Katie’s medical knowledge and the fact she offers her services exclusively to her patients on a one-to-one basis means everything is professional, confidential and discreet.
Prices differ according to treatments. The clinic also offers bespoke packages to clients to make sure they achieve their desired results.
