Excess fat

The problem of stubborn fat and cellulite

There’s no substitute for a healthy lifestyle of regular exercise and a well-balanced diet, especially if you’re trying to lose weight or keep in shape.

But despite all your best efforts, you may find you just can’t get rid of fat or cellulite quickly enough from some areas of your body.

Particular problem areas are under the arms or chin, around the neck or waist, and on the abdomen or thighs. Or bingo wings, love handles, beer bellies and muffin tops as they’re otherwise known!

And even if excess fat or cellulite isn’t a major problem, it may seem harder to keep up your youthful appearance, as ageing skin loses its elasticity and firmness and starts to sag.

The solution – body sculpting

Body sculpting – also called body shaping or body contouring – includes a range of cosmetic procedures that help to remove stubborn fat and cellulite.

The range of body sculpting procedures we offer work most effectively in combination with skin rejuvenation treatments and products. Click here for more information about skin rejuvenation.


Body sculpting treatments for stubborn fat and cellulite

We provide the following treatments for stubborn fat and cellulite:

  • 3D Lipomed
  • 3D Dermology
  • Carboxytherapy
  • Fat freezing (cryotherapy)
  • Ultrasound cavitation

3D Lipomed is the latest version of the popular 3D Lipo treatments. It is a powerful, non-invasive approach to liposuction, achieving noticeable fat loss but without surgery.

3D Lipomed helps to reduce body fat by destroying fat cells, instead of merely breaking them up and releasing them into the body.

3D Dermology is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that targets cellulite in any area of the body.

It’s a cost-effective alternative to traditional liposuction, with a 3-dimensional approach that includes fat removal and skin tightening as well as cellulite reduction.

Carboxytherapy (also called carbon dioxide therapy or CDT) uses carbon dioxide gas for cosmetic body sculpting and skin rejuvenation.

It is a non-surgical treatment for removing cellulite and localised fat as well as stretch marks, scarring, and tired or ageing skin.

Fat freezing (also known as cryolipolysis or cryotherapy) is another non-surgical alternative to liposuction for removing localised areas of excess fat.

The fat cells in the targeted areas are cooled to near freezing. This causes them to crystallise, break apart and die, before being naturally eliminated from the body.

Ultrasound cavitation uses ultrasonic waves to emulsify unwanted fat, making it easy for the body to eliminate the fat through the urinary and the lymphatic system.

It is a less expensive alternative to liposuction, giving similar results but involving no surgery, scars or anaesthetic.
