What are Non-Surgical Treatments?

Do you have pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t shift, bulges you would rather not have, or areas of uneven tissue around scars that are making you feel less confident?

We have a range of non-surgical fat reduction machines and injections that can help beat the battle of the bulge.

Our non-surgical fat reduction treatments are a popular alternative to liposuction. This treatment is carried out using an ultrasound technology called cavitation. A low-frequency ultrasound is used to produce a strong wave that disintegrates the fat membranes into a liquid state.

This liquid is broken down into two elements. One is oil, one is water and both are processed by the body’s natural mechanisms. The oil content is picked up by the lymphatic system and is taken through the body, through the lymph system and then excreted. The water content is absorbed by the blood and utilised as energy within the body.

Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts in order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.

Radio Frequency technology is a fantastic treatment for both skin tightening and cellulite reduction. The Radio Frequency energy selectively increases the temperature of the fat cells, simultaneously in deep and superficial layers of fat. This increases the metabolism and release of liquid fat from fat cells. Normal cells can support 60 degrees, but fat cells start to be melted at 41 degrees. After the treatment and release of liquid fat, the fat cells shrink in size, and skin is restored closer to its original form, resulting in reducing or eliminating the appearance of cellulite. We use a scientifically calibrated temperature gage to ensure your fat cells are targeted throughout the whole of the session. We also have an onsite gym, so please be aware that as fat metabolism is greatly enhanced by 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise, your treatment will require an additional 30 minute fat burning session carried out on a spin bike, rower or running machine. A fully qualified personal trainer and first aider is on site who is also trained in exercise of special population and co-morbidities. Appropriate clothing and footwear is recommended, there is no shower facilities available at this time so please bring a towel.

3D-shockwave

3D-shockwave works by stimulating the fat breakdown, collagen synthesis, and lymphatic drainage and is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area is emits radial waves through the skin. This treatment can also be used to breakdown scar tissue and has been uses as a treatment for chronic pain as the acoustic energy is able to reach painful areas promoting regeneration and reparative processes in tendons, bones and other soft tissues, as it is able to literally blast away calcified fibroblasts and allow stimulation of collagen, essential for the repair of myo-skeletal and ligamentous structures. This treatment is also used to aid reversal of chronic inflammation by working with mast cells to enhance inflammatory response to aid healing but also to allow the next step of normal healing and regenerative processes leading to an overall calming of the once inflamed area.

Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis, often called ‘Fat Freezing’ is a non-surgical procedure that uses cold temperature to reduce fat deposits in certain body areas. This treatment is designed for people that struggle to reduce stubborn fat deposits and is not intended for people who are obese or significantly overweight.

How does it work?

When the fat cells are exposed to a fat-freezing temperature, they undergo crystallisation and localised cell death. The freezing and crystallisation process causes the cell to become damaged and shrink, resulting in the cells sending out distress signals. These signals are answered by macrophages, which ingest damaged and shrunken cells and take them through the body’s natural waste removal system called the lymph system. About 20 to 40% of fat cells in the treated area die naturally and dissolve over the week, with results showing after approximately four months.

What areas can we treat?

We can treat many body areas, including:

  • Beneath the chin (double chin)
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Upper chest
  • Back fat

This will be discussed during your consultation to ensure you receive the best results possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments are required?

Treatments such as fat freezing are ideal for those with small pockets of fat. However, this type of fat reduction treatment is perfect for those wanting to see overall inch loss. Cavitation is best for treating the abdomen, thighs and muffin top area and a course of 6-8 treatments are recommended.

To achieve the best results, we advise that cavitation is combined with our other technologies such as radio frequency skin tightening or fat melting, along with shockwave therapy to help the body to expel the disintegrated. However, our therapists will advise the best treatment plan for you based on your requirements and expectations.

What should I expect during the treatment?

Cavitation involves a handpiece gently gliding over the treatment area, delivering ultrasound waves into the body. A warm sensation can occur as a result of the handpiece massaging the area, however the majority of treated patients consistently report a painless and comfortable experience.

The average session duration of cavitation lasts around 30-40 minutes but this can vary depending on the size of the treatment area.

To monitor your progress, we will also take your measurements on your 1st, 4th and final treatments so that we can track your overall inch loss. We recommend that all of our clients follow a healthy lifestyle and drink plenty of water to help maintain optimal results.

Is there any downtime?

As this is a non-surgical treatment, there is no downtime required afterwards – you can return to work and your everyday life immediately!

You may see a couple of minor side effects such as redness, or the feeling of bruised skin and/or increased skin sensitivity but this will cease within a few days.

Treatment Pricing

Cavitation / Radio Frequency / Shockwave
£60 for 30 mins or £100 for 60 minutes
A course of 8 treatments is recommended
Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing

Large head – £150 for 60 minutes

Medium head – £150 for 45 minutes

Double Head Medium for duo areas – £225 for 45 minutes, to include inner thighs, love handles, upper arms
We treat heated areas weekly for a period of 8 weeks to include 30 minutes cardio after which is free but will really help with the treatment.

Fat freezing is a single treatment which doesn’t need repeating but we are able to offer exercise and nutritional advice and aftercare to help with results.

Heat treatment with a program should see results after the 1st week.

Fat freezing can take up to 6 months for a full effect but once the fat cells deplete the effects will be permanent in the majority of cases.
