Are Lipofirm Facials Safe?

You’ve probably heard all about Lipofirm by now. It seems to be the non-invasive treatment of choice for celebrities to tighten and firm up, and for good reason. It’s effective, painless, and leaves skin looking bright, young, and smooth, with no real side effects or recovery time. You’ve heard about reality show stars smoothing out cellulite and indulging in Brazilian bum lifts (which use the same technology) – but do you really know how it works, and did you know that you can get it…on your face? 

What is Lipofirm anyway?

Lipofirm combines TriLipo and Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) to stimulate and increase fat metabolism in the subcutaneous fat layer (the fat beneath the layers of your skin). It banishes wrinkles, reduces fat, and breaks down damaged collagen so it can grow back stronger and healthier. 

Dynamic Muscle Activation works to tone muscle and stimulate blood flow to boost lymphatic drainage (which helps get rid of fat). This helps to promote fat and cellulite reduction and hides the sides of ageing. 

TriLipo uses radiofrequency to heat the fat layer, which triggers a natural process called lipolysis. This involves the natural release of lipids (fats) from the fat cells. The fat loss is accelerated when DMA causes muscles to contract and “squeeze” the fat cells. The muscles then push the released fat away from the cell towards lymphatic drainage systems so the fat can be disposed of. The body then disposes of these naturally in the same way it gets rid of other waste. 

The fat tissue loses volume, so skin can become visibly more tight and resilient. This results in visible contouring and sculpting, and brighter, healthier-looking skin. The results might not be immediate, and can sometimes take a little while to show. 

Is it safe? 

Lipofirm is medically safe, FDA approved and painless. It’s completely non-invasive, and even feels somewhat like a pressurised hot-stone massage, so you can lay back and live your spa fantasies whilst zapping away your fat. 

You’ll be glad to know that there are little to no side effects, aside from the treatment site being a little red and heated for a short while after the procedure. Some people feel the need to use the toilet more often than usual in the first 24 hours after the treatment, as the body disposes of the fat.


One of the best things about Lipofirm – and the thing that has made it so popular with celebrities and professionals alike – is that there is little to no recovery time. Many celebrities are reported to have Lipofirm treatments the day before or on the day of red carpet events or TV appearances. 

How do Lipofirm facials work? 

As a facial treatment, Lipofirm makes the face look slimmer, whilst combating the effects of ageing and minimising fine lines and wrinkles caused by decreased collagen production. It helps to treat ageing skin around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaws, jowls, chin and neck, whilst tackling large pores and improving skin tone and texture, all of which give dull skin a youthful boost and a tight, lifted glow. 

TriLipo technology heats the subcutaneous fat layer and helps the body to release fat whilst  Dynamic Muscle Activation works to stimulate the SMAS (or Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System, which is the muscle system extending under the chin from below the eye) and the platysma (the muscle beneath the chin and down the neck) which lifts and tones the muscles. 

When coming to the Nu You Aesthetics clinic for a Lipofirm facial, you’ll be welcomed and made comfortable by one of our aesthetic practitioners. Your face will be cleansed gently in order to prime your skin for the treatment and exfoliate the top layer of dead skin. Our team member will then moisturise and treat your skin with Reform SPF products which maximise the positive outcome of the treatment by protecting the skin whilst still allowing it to breathe.
