What is 3D Dermology?
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.
How does it work?
3D Dermology combines separate procedures in one treatment (each of which is also available on its own):
- ultrasound cavitation
- fat freezing (cryolipolysis)
- radiofrequency skin tightening
- Dermology (rolling the skin to reduce cellulite).
Ultrasound cavitation uses ultrasonic waves to break down unwanted fat into a form (an emulsion) that is easy for the body to eliminate through the urinary and the lymphatic system.
Fat freezing (cryotherapy or cryolipolysis) crystallises and breaks down fat cells by cooling them to near freezing point. The dead fat cells are naturally processed by the body and eliminated.
Radiofrequency skin tightening uses radio waves to penetrate deep into the skin, improving lymphatic flow in the skin and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
Dermology uses vacuum suction and rollers to drain the depleted fat cells through the lymphatic system.
How long does each treatment session take?
The time needed for a single session of each treatment varies:
- ultrasound cavitation – up to 40 minutes
- fat freezing (cryotherapy) – between 30 and 60 minutes,
- radiofrequency skin tightening – between 30 and 60 minutes
- 3D Dermology and radiofrequency – up to 30 minutes.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience slight discomfort during the 3D Dermology treatment.
Most patients also have some short-term redness, numbness and bruising after the procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
For the best results, we recommend a course of 6 to 8 3D Dermology treatments, at weekly intervals.
How long do the results last?
You will see results from 2 months from the start of your course of treatment, up to about 6 month.
As with other body-sculpting treatments, the best results are maintained with a healthy lifestyle.
