    Chin Up"Chin Up", double chin fat reduction days at Skinfresh.

    Ever wished you had a tighter, sleeker under chin area? A reduced double chin gives a more youthful look.

    Dr Frances Pitsilis has been following the research into fat reduction technologies for 10 years. She was not happy with the available technologies, nor the progress of the radio frequency technology until now.

    Now, Skinfresh has invented "Chin Up" days. Come along on a "Chin Up" day and pay only $650 for each double chin treatment with truSculpt 3D.

    The treatment lasts a few minutes and is a walk in - walk out procedure with absolutely no down time. If you can "pinch an inch" under your chin, you could be suitable for this treatment.

    truSculpt 3D is the first safe and effective radiofrequency fat destruction treatment of its kind in Australasia. Electricity coming into the machine is converted to Radiofrequency wavelengths that are attracted only to fat.

    HandpieceThe under chin handpiece is a convenient size that will fit under your chin to heat up the fat and overlying skin. Once the fat has reached the target temperature for the required time, fat cells go into a controlled death phase called "apoptosis" and then die off, and are carried off by the body's lymphatics never to return over a period of several weeks. An added bonus is that the treatment also tightens the skin.

    Depending on the size and extent of your double chin, the recommended treatment protocol is 2-4 treatments every 4-6 weeks - that's it!

    After effects include a sensation of heat and some tenderness to touch for a few hours. Make up can easily cover the redness and you can return to your activities immediately.

    The treatment works over a period of weeks. The fat in that area will not return. If you gain a considerable amount of weight, your body will generally increase its fat layer.

    Chin Before and AfterTo keep the price really low, we decided to make a day of it - a "Chin Up" Day.

    There is absolutely no obligation.


    Dr Pitsilis New Consultation Fees

    Costs continue to rise, and Dr Pitsilis is not funded by the PHO system.

    Within any 30-60 minute consultation, several to many problems are often dealt with - contrasting with GP consultations that typically deal with one problem within a 10-15 minute visit.

    Within the New Patient consultation, usually between 15 and 25 problems are dealt with and satisfying results follow that usually were not previously possible.

    NEW FEES FROM 1st October

    30 minutes: $240

    45 minutes: $330

    60 minutes: $420

    New patient consultation

    Administration Fee: $70

    2 hour consultation $930 - if this ends up much shorter than expected, a reduced fee is charged. If over 2 hours are needed, there is no extra fee.

    Dr Pitsilis tries to reduce as much as possible any need for too many follow up consultations.

    Once a patient is well and stable, she asks them to see her yearly.


    The Low Stress Diet

    This is not only to help with stress, but its also the Lose Weight Diet, the Low Allergy Diet, the Low Inflammation Diet, etc. It is the diet we were meant to eat.

    We have been on the earth for 6 million years, mostly as a hunter gatherer, eating hunter gatherer food. We started growing foods like grains and animals (Beef) around 10 thousand years ago when we formed population groups. This means that grains and dairy are relatively new.

    The small bowel is the part of the bowel where nutrients are absorbed from our foods. Around the small bowel lives 70% of our lymph glands - called Peyers Patches. Inside the lining of the small bowel live 2.2 kg of 'friendly bacteria' - these are 10 Billion cells - one human has only 1 Billion cells, so this is 10 humans worth of cells!

    The friendly bacteria communicate with our Peyers Patches as food comes in. If something comes into the body that is not familiar, two things can happen - the friendly bacteria send 'alarm messages' to the immune system, and the bacteria types change, so that the messages change. These changes and messages cause inflammation in the body which influences health.

    The ideal diet for everyone says:

    1. Avoid foods that harm - Alcohol, caffeine, sugar. But how do we know what other foods, although we could commonly suspect dairy and gluten in grains? You can get clues from looking at your family's and your health history. If there is irritable bowel, consider avoiding gluten. If there is migraine, its gluten, dairy, yeast, and citrus. If its allergy or asthma, its gluten and dairy. If you have had a tonsillectomy or ear problems as a child, avoid dairy. If its any autoimmune disease like thyroid problems, Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus etc, then its gluten and probably dairy.
    2. Help the bowel to work, by avoiding foods that harm, and take a Probiotic. Probiotics are friendly bacteria that if swallowed, give a health benefit. They mostly contain Lactobacillis and Biffidis bacteria. No, yoghurt is not good enough, especially if you should avoid dairy. Get a professional probiotic and keep it in the fridge - it will work wonders for respiratory, urinary, vaginal and bowel infections. It will also help to rebalance the bowel bacteria if you have eaten the wring things.
    3. Take Omega 3 fish oil, and a good Multi-vitamin.
