The 3D-lipo machines offer five different methods of fat reduction and improvement of skin appearance, with bespoke services being offered to suit a person’s individual needs.
In a process that utilises the completely unique combination of electro and cryo therapy, there will be a 20-40% reduction in the fat cells of the treatment area, which will die and dissolve over the months following treatment, to reveal the new body shape. It works via a targeted super cooling applicator that takes the temperature of the treatment area down to -6ºC, which freezes the fat cells to a point where they cannot survive (1). This kills the fat cells under the skin, without affecting any other type of cells.
Cavitation allows for a large area to be treated in a shorter period of time thanks to the four transducers that are used. It is a non-invasive way of body sculpting, by treating deep cellulite and reducing fat in localised areas.
Using low frequency ultrasound, bubbles are created in the liquid in the fat cells. These bubbles implode once they grow to a certain size and the heat and pressure energy that is released, causes the destruction of the fat cells. No other types of cells are affected and the broken down fat cells are re-purposed by the body or excreted.
3D Lipo Radiofrequency (RF)
3D Lipo Radiofrequency energy is directed to a target area to improve the appearance of cellulite and to tighten skin. The radiofrequency energy heats the layer of skin which contains the collagen fibres, causing these fibres to contract, as well as increasing the production of new collagen and elastin. This will tighten the skin for a smoother more youthful appearance. The 3D-lipo system comes with options for RF skin tightening on both the face and body.
Dermology improves the appearance of skin with cellulite reduction by combining a roller and vacuum action. This works by increasing the blood supply and lymph circulation.
The later 3D-lipomed model combines this modality with in-built radiofrequency.
Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Shockwave therapy works by applying radial shockwaves which stimulate the breakdown of fat and increase lymphatic drainage and collagen synthesis (production). This is available on the newest 3D-lipomed V2 model.
Radiofrequency and dermology are often combined to target cellulite, whilst cryolipolysis (fat freezing) or cavitation (ultrasound) are used for fat reduction and inch loss in an area.
