Hip Dip Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
If you are looking to achieve that perfect hourglass figure, then sometimes prominent hip dips can get in the way. Regain your sense of body confidence with the help of our non-invasive hip dip treatments.
Hip dips are hips that naturally curve inwards around the site of your pelvic bone. The pelvic bone is a bone that curves inwards, and everyone has one. But for some people, their unique physiological makeup can make the curve stand out in their skin. Hip dips are therefore a completely normal part of the body’s natural structure, and many celebrities are proud of having them, from Beyonce to Bella Hadid.
The key cause of hip dips lies in the shape of a person’s pelvis, and how the surrounding ligaments, muscles and skin tissues cover this key bone. The pelvis has a natural indentation to it. But the curve can stand out depending on how a person’s subcutaneous body fat sits around the bone, and how their muscle mass layers up around it. In some instances, the curve can look more prominent than usual, making the hip dip stand out from a visual perspective.
There are many different techniques that patients can use to fix the appearance of prominent hip dips. Hip dip exercises like squats and lunges can play a key role in helping to smooth out the inward curve. But it is important to focus on exercises that work the entire lower body and hip area rather than just the glutes, or you may not fix the problem. Speak to a personal trainer who can assess the shape of your hip dips first before undergoing any specific exercise to reduce their appearance. This can help to ensure that you can rebalance the look of the hip dip curve by working on your fat stores and muscles which may be making the indent look more obvious.
Body contouring techniques can help to rebalance and contour muscle and fat tissues so that the pelvic indent looks less obvious and pronounced. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we are leaders in body contouring techniques that require no surgery or downtime. Patients can redefine the shape and structure of their hips simply and quickly in a short 30-60-minute session to gain a more streamlined hourglass shape to the hips.
We offer CoolSculpting fat freezing technologies to slim down stubborn pockets of fat around the hips, and EMSculpt body sculpting technologies to redefine muscle tone across the hip area. These treatments can also be combined to achieve maximum results.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved technology that breaks down targeted fat stores using a patented fat freezing treatment. We can help patients to achieve an hourglass figure by reducing the size of fat bulges that may sit above and below the hip dip indent. By breaking down these fat tissues, the hip dip curve will look less deep and obvious and can help patients to attain a natural slender curve to the shape of their hips.
EMSculpt is an FDA-approved body sculpting treatment that builds up muscle fat and burns fat at the same time. It uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to contract muscles at a rapid rate in just one 30-minute session. Feel the effects of doing 20,000 squats or crunches, as the advanced technology forces muscles to build back stronger. By building up the gluteus minimus muscle that lies on top of the pelvic bone indentation, we can naturally disguise the curve while giving patients an athletic and defined hip in the process.
We also offer upgraded versions of both CoolSculpting and EMSculpt technologies for those patients who want to maximise results. CoolSculpting Elite leads the way when it comes to targeted fat reduction around hip dips, while EMSculpt Neo is the world’s leading muscle building technology.
