3D Lipo Fat Reduction

with No Comments

Best for pockets of stubborn fat, Body Sculpting, and Targeted Fat Removal

3D Lipo uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for Targeted Fat Removal/ Sculpting. The latest technology deliveres a 24 line matrix of focussed energy at a depth of 1.3cm. This latest technology has benefits over cryolipolysis as it can be even more specifically targeted and is faster.

Before & After


3D HIFU – Tech explained

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

3D- HIFU is the latest technology used to target specific focused areas of fat in the fastest treatment time. This technology works by delivering focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm and 8mm to destroy fat cells. The high frequency of the ultrasound waves results in heating under the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated. The damaged cells are flushed away via a natural removal process through the lymphatic system that continues for up to 3 months.

How this tech works

The HIFU handpiece delivers focused ultrasound waves to a precise depth to cause Necrosis of the fat cell. The controlled movement of the handpiece results in a grid of treated fat cells. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in rapid hearing of the focal zone at 1.3cm and 8mm under the skin leaving the skins surface unaffected. However this energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction. Exposing the fat cell to this high temperature causes rapid cell death (necrosis).

What areas can be improved with 3D-HIFU body?

This treatment is great for busting those unwanted stubborn pockets of fat. Recommended areas for treatment are typically: abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs and buttocks.

How many treatments are recommended?

A single treatment per area is recommended.

What results can I expect from this treatment?

Results can be seen from 2-4 months post treatment. The average reduction of the treatment area after just one single session is typically 2-4cm.

Can I combine 3D-HIFU with other treatments?

3D-HIFU body is best for targeting stubborn pockets of fat, however if you wish to have more of an overall fat reduction treatment your therapist may recommend combining your 3D-HIFU body treatment as part of a treatment course incorporating other technologies for a more complete fat reduction treatment. The beauty of 3D-lipo is that each technology can be combined to enable you to target your needs and devise a specific and bespoke treatment plan for you ensuring maximum results.

What will I experience during treatment?

A handpiece will be placed on the skin, this is the handpiece used to target focussed energy to the fat cells. The handpiece is placed on the area of treatment and held there for approximately 2 minutes, this will be repeated 3 times per treatment area. During treatment, you may feel the warmth of the handpiece, and it some cases it may get slightly hot and uncomfortable. You may also feel a slight vibration and tingling sensation, although this is completely normal.


Cryolipolysis

An ideal treatment to target pockets of fat and is often used in body sculpting.

(Fat freezing -results within 6 months or 3 months with shockwave)

This advanced fat reduction technology delivers precise and controlled cooling to gently target the fat cells underneath the Skin. These cells are crystalised and die, during the procedure. Over time your body naturally process’s the frozen fat cells and eliminates them in the following 3 months.

Arms

Abdomen

Hips

Thighs

Lower Buttocks

How many treatments are recommended?

Only one treatment is required per area.

What results can I expect from this treatment?

On average you will see a 20% – 40% reduction of the fat in the localised area. As the body takes several months to flush out the dead fat cells, results will be visible after 4 – 12 weeks.

Can I combine 3D-cryofreeze with other treatments?

3D-cryofreeze is a one off treatment, however it can be devised as a part of a course of treatments depending on your goals, your therapist will discuss this with you. It is great as a one off treatment for targeting stubborn areas, but can also be combined with other technologies on the machine to enhance results. For example if you have a pocket of stubborn fat but also loose skin on that area, it would be advised to combine 3D-cryofreeze with a course of radio frequency to both remove the fat and tighten/ tone the skin.

What will I experience during treatment?

First of all, an anti-freeze pad is placed onto the area of treatment, to protect the skin. During treatment the fat is drawn into a suction cup before freezing. This will provide a slight pulling sensation and the area will be cold. Within a few minutes the area should go numb. The handpiece will be on the area from 30 -60 minutes to depending on the size of the area being treated.


Cavitation – Tech explained

Low Frequency Ultrasound

Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes. A fat cell cannot with stand this pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state.

What happens to the released fat?

During the 3D-cavitation, treatment, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily compromised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the 3D-cavitation treatment and the fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed by the body’s natural mechanisms.

What areas can be improved with 3D-Cavitation?

3D cavitation is best fro treating larger areas of fat such as the abdomen thighs and ‘muffin top’.

How many treatments are recommended?

A course of 6-8 treatments are recommended to achieve optimum results although your therapust will advice the best treatment plan for you.

What Results can I expect from this treatment?

Results can be seen from treatment one, with an average loss of 2-4cm per treatment. Results will be improved during each treatment.

Can I combine 3D-Cavitation with other treatments?

Yes, 3D-Caviation can often be combined with other treatments depending on what you are looking to achieve. A therapist will device a tailored treatment program which may incorporate the addition of other technologies.

What will I experience during treatment?

The size of the treatment area determines the duration of the session. During treatment, a handheld device delivering ultrasound energy gently glides over the marked area. The majority of treated patients consistently report a painless and comfortable experience.
