3D Lipo is a treatment that has attracted a lot of hype in recent years about its apparent ability to target and zap stubborn areas of fat, particularly in those parts of the body where many of us struggle to shift the pounds, such as around the midriff and thighs.
The level of attention that the 3D Lipo procedure has drawn has simply gone up and up whenever a new report has emerged in a tabloid newspaper or celebrity magazine about the latest famous figure to have enquired about or benefitted from it.
Over the Rainbow star Stephanie Davis, model Katie Price, former Blue ace Antony Costa, Amy Childs of The Only Way is Essex and Coleen Rooney – wife of ex-England football legend Wayne, of course – are just some of the best-known people to have received or asked about 3D Lipo.
But how does 3D Lipo work, exactly, and is it really everything it’s cracked up to be?
Let’s get down to the technical bits…
There are various options and methods to choose from when it comes to 3D Lipo. But in a nutshell, it’s all about destroying fat cells and improving the appearance of problem areas of your skin in a way that doesn’t require you to go under the knife at all.
That may instantly make 3D Lipo a more appealing-sounding option to you than traditional liposuction. But it’s the following four elements that make 3D Lipo what it is:
- Radio frequency
So, let’s go through each of these in turn…
Cavitation is the use of ultrasound to rupture your fat cells; this process turns these unwanted cells into liquid so that your body can then carry them away as waste.
Cryolipolysis, meanwhile, is the term used for the freezing of fat cells. It quite literally involves your fat cells being exposed to extremely cold conditions so that they freeze, although you’ll be relieved to know that fat doesn’t need to be as cold as water needs to be to freeze. These fat cells will then be naturally ‘disposed of’ by the body in the weeks after the treatment.
Radio frequency is another key part of many 3D Lipo procedures, selectively heating skin tissues so that collagen fibres contract, resulting in the production of new collagen. It’s a great way to give your skin a tighter look.
Such radio frequency may be combined with 3D dermatology, with special vacuum suction and rollers being used to drain away useless fat cells through the lymphatic system.
Any given treatment described as ‘3D Lipo’ may use a combination of these procedures to maximise its effectiveness, although you are also urged to follow a healthy and active lifestyle to ensure you get the results you want.
What might your own 3D Lipo treatment involve?
Well, that’s something you can discuss in an appointment with one of our Aesthetic Practitioners! Call 0207 971 1960 today to learn more about how we can personalise your treatment plan to ensure you achieve the very best possible outcome.
The simple fact that 3D Lipo is non-surgical might be enough to convince you that it’s the right procedure for your needs. It’s also very convenient – each session only needs to take about 30 minutes, so you might even be able to schedule treatments during your lunch break!
The conductive gel that we also use in our 3D Lipo process may even leave you feeling like you’re having a massage rather than undergoing a fat-reduction procedure. People have been known to fall asleep during treatments with us, as they simply feel so relaxed while the work is being undertaken.
Also bear in mind that you can maximise your results by booking a series of sessions with us, although even just one session can make a noticeable difference to your body.
