3D Ultimate Lipo 3D Lipo 3D Lipo is an innovative treatment system that offers a range of advanced, highly effective, body sculpting treatments to help clients improve their body shape without surgery. Combining some of the very latest technologies for non-surgical aesthetic procedures, the 3D-lipo system incorporates hand pieces for cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing), radiofrequency, Ultrasound cavitation, dermology and shockwave therapy. Fat Freezing Also known as Cryolipolysis, 3D Lipo Fat Freezing is able to target stubborn pockets of soft, squeezable fat tissue to help reduce lumps, bumps and bulges. Fat freezing non-invasively targets and destroys fat cells in the desired areas for long lasting results. It works via a targeted cooling applicator that takes the temperature of the treatment area down to -6ºC, which freezes the fat cells to a point where they cannot survive . This kills the fat cells under the skin, without affecting any other type of cells. Skin Tightening 3D Lipo skin tightening uses Radio Frequency to help tighten loose and sagging skin on the body. Radiofrequency energy is directed to a target area to improve the appearance of cellulite and to tighten skin. The radiofrequency energy heats the layer of skin which contains the collagen fibres, causing these fibres to contract, as well as increasing the production of new collagen and elastin. This will tighten the skin for a smoother more youthful appearance. Cavitation Ultrasound Cavitation is an effective body shaping treatment for fat reduction and overall inch loss. Cavitation allows for a large area to be treated in a shorter period of time. It is a non-invasive way of body sculpting, by treating deep cellulite and reducing fat in localised areas. Using low frequency ultrasound, bubbles are created in the liquid in the fat cells. These bubbles implode once they grow to a certain size and the heat and pressure energy that is released, causes the destruction of the fat cells. No other types of cells are affected and the broken down fat cells are re-purposed by the body or excreted. Shockwave therapy Shockwave therapy is clinically proven to help increase and speed up the results of other body shaping treatments such as 3D Lipo Fat Freezing. Shockwave therapy works by applying radial shockwaves which stimulate the breakdown of fat and increase lymphatic drainage and collagen synthesis (production) This procedure could help to enhance all of our body shaping treatments and we recommend including it as part of the treatment programme. HIFU A one off treatment for hard fat areas. HIFU effectively destroys fat cells and tightens skin in the treatment area. The damaged destroyed cells are flushes away via a natural removal process through the lymphatic system.

The 3D-lipo machines offer five different methods of fat reduction and improvement of skin appearance, with bespoke services being offered to suit a person’s individual needs. Each 3D Lipo procedure can be used on their own or combined as a bespoke treatment programme to help achieve excellent body shaping results, destroying fat cells or help to improve the texture, tone and appearance of problem areas. This treatment is perfect for targeting stubborn stomach fat, loose or sagging skin and cellulite. What areas can be treated?

It can be used on the abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs and buttocks, as well as on the upper arms and under the neck, around the jawline. Addressing areas of concern often referred to as love handles, saddle bags, muffin tops, turkey neck and bingo wings. How many sessions will I need and how far apart should I have them? Cavitation – 8 sessions Fat Freezing – 1 session Cryo – 1 off treatment, can have additional treatment 6 weeks post first treatment if combined with shockwave HIFU – 1 session per area, Body / Face/– 8 sessions per area Shockwave therapy - 8 sessions Am I a suitable candidate / what are the Contra-indications? As with most cosmetic procedures it should not be used in women who are pregnant or breast feeding, or on any areas of skin that are affected by wounds or injury. Those with pacemakers or metal implants within their body may not be suitable for treatment. A full medical history should be taken before treatment and if you have any concerns about your suitability you should consult a doctor before undergoing any treatment. What results can I expect? Positive results from treatment will be seen after the first session and over the following few months as the body metabolises the destroyed fat cells and new collagen formation occurs to tighten skin. Better results in fat reduction and skin tightening will be seen with each additional treatment. Fat cells will continue to be flushed out of the body, up to 6 months following treatment. There is no reason why the results seen from a 3D-lipo procedure shouldn’t be permanent if the recommended treatment regime is followed. Weight gain or hormonal factors could affect long term results so you are advised to adopt an appropriate diet and lifestyle plan after your treatment programme ends. You will not be required to follow a specific exercise regime during or after your treatment however. You may be advised to have top-up treatments on an annual basis to maintain the results. Are there any side effects? Some individuals might experience a little redness, bruising and discomfort in the treatment area, both during and after treatment, as well as possible tingling and numbness. All these minor symptoms will be very short lived, leading to a quick, full recovery. Downtime and Aftercare / post treatment advice? As the treatment is non-surgical, the recovery time is much shorter than more invasive fat removal treatments. You should be able to return to your normal activities almost immediately following treatment. Post treatment drink 2 liter's of water within the first 24 hours and then 1 liter per day following this No alcohol 24 hours pre or post treatment.
