How Emerald Laser and Nichola Maasdorp No4 Clinic Can Help With Stress-Induced Weight Gain

Stress can have a huge impact on your health, both mentally and physically. One of the most common physical effects of stress is weight gain. It’s not uncommon for people to experience a few extra pounds due to increased stress levels, and the resultant increase in cortisol levels circulating around the body. High cortisol levels cause untold damage to the organs of your body like the skin, heart and brain. This can result in skin conditions that are difficult to manage, heart disease and diseases of the brain like Alziemiers. Fortunately, there are ways to fight back against stress-induced weight gain. Let’s take a look at how Emerald Laser and Nichola Maasdorp No4 Clinic can help you in this endeavour.

Using Emerald Laser Technology to Combat Stress-Related Weight Gain

Emerald laser technology is one of the most effective tools for fighting stress-induced weight gain. This technology targets fat cells specifically, breaking them down so that they can be more easily metabolized by the body. The laser energy passes through the skin, targeting only fat cells and leaving other tissues unharmed. This process is completely non-invasive, making it an ideal choice for those looking to get rid of stubborn fat without undergoing surgery or other invasive treatments. Patients who undergo treatment with emerald laser technology typically experience significant results after just six sessions!

“Hi Nichola, I don’t know if you remember but I had tear trough treatment back in November. I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I was initially fairly pleased with the results but now am delighted! The darkness has all but gone even without make-up. I am so much more confident than before.”


“My wrinkled lined face caused me great distress for many years! An opportunity arose to attend an open day with Dr Nichola Maasdorp. I was introduced to different treatments to reduce these lines. Following treatment my lines are smoother and I am very pleased with the results.
I would recommend facial enhancement treatment with Dr Nichola Maasdorp.”
