Most of us would like to ‘tweak’ our figures here and there. Small pockets of stubborn fat can linger, no matter how much exercise or healthy eating we do! However, surgical intervention may not be required or indeed, not the route we’d like to take when it comes to shifting those annoying bulges, so what options are there? At Dr. MediSpa in the heart of Loughton, we offer a range of non-surgical fat removal options for both men and women, to deliver superior results you’ll absolutely love.
Cryotherapy (Fat Freezing)
Fat freezing (also known as cryotherapy or cryolipolysis) is an alternative to surgical liposuction and is particularly effective for those hard to shift areas of fat such as under the arms, chin, around the neck or waist and on the abdomen or thighs. A controlled ‘freezing’ of the fat cells takes place which destroys them but leaves any underlying tissues unharmed. The beauty of fat freezing is that there is no downtime and it offers permanent results.
During treatment, a gel pad and cooling device will be applied to the targeted area. As the vacuum head draws fatty tissue in to an applicator cup, you might feel some tugging or a slight pinching sensation, followed by extreme cold. However, this is quite normal and both sensations usually become numb in around 10 minutes. Each treatment will take around an hour and it may be possible to treat multiple areas at once. You may see an improvement in only one session with cryotherapy and in some areas the fat may be reduced by up to 20%.
3D LipoMed is a non-invasive approach to achieving noticeable fat loss without surgery. It uses 3 key technologies to remove fat and tighten the skin, in some cases, shrinking inches!
- Cryolypolysis – this is controlled freezing of fat cells. This technology kills the fat cells without damaging surrounding cells or tissues. The body naturally disposes of the dead cells via the lymphatic system.
- Ultrasound Cavitation – this uses pressure waves to rupture and liquefy the fat cells. Again, the body disposes of the liquid naturally over the weeks that follow treatment.
- Radiofrequency – this technology generates energy which heats the underlying layers of the skin, contracting collagen fibres and encouraging new collagen formation. This results in tighter and firmer skin.
We recommend 6 to 8 treatments of 3D LipoMed for optimum results, though you will see significant changes after each session.
To target cellulite in all areas of the body, we offer 3D Dermology, a non-surgical, device-led procedure which is a cost-effective and comfortable alternative to traditional liposuction. 3D Dermology combines four separate technologies in one simple procedure, which can be used alone or in combination for a fully-holistic approach.
- Ultrasound cavitation – to break down unwanted fat to an emulsion that is easy for the body to eliminate via the urinary and lymphatic system.
- Cryolypolisis – destroying the fat cells by cooling them to near freezing point.
- Radiofrequency – to tighten, tone and improve the skin’s overall appearance via the use of heat energy.
- Dermology – the use of vacuum suction and rollers to drain the depleted fat cells through the lymphatic system.
Treatment times for non-surgical fat removal therapy vary depending on the area/s to be treated:
Ultrasound Cavitation – up to 40 minutes
Fat Freezing – between 30 and 60 minutes
Radiofrequency – between 30 and 60 minutes
3D Dermology plus Radiofrequency – up to 60 minutes
