3D Lipo



What is 3D-Lipo and how does it work?

3D-Lipo is a powerful non-surgical approach to liposuction that is able to reduce body fat by
destroying fat cells.

The 3D treatment involves four different options and methods for destroying fat cells and improving
the appearance of problem areas – Cavitation, Cryolipolysis for fat reduction, Radio Frequency for
skin tightening and Dermology for cellulite reduction.
 

What is it Used to Treat?

The 3D-lipo machine range offers non-surgical fat removal for men and women, as well as the
treatment of cellulite and body skin tightening (such as post childbirth tummies). Modalities can be
used separately or in a combined treatment approach, depending on your specific concerns. It can
be used on the abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs and buttocks, as well as on the
upper arms and under the neck, around the jawline. Addressing areas of concern often referred to
as love handles, saddle bags, muffin tops, turkey neck and bingo wings.

What are the four treatments?

Cryolipolysis
is when the fat cells are frozen – the extreme cold aims to destroy fat cells, which
can then be “disposed of”by the body naturally in the weeks after the treatment.
Cryolipolysis is a medical treatment used to destroy fat cells. Its principle relies on controlled
cooling to near -5° Celsius for the non-invasive localized reduction of fat deposits in order to
reshape body contours. The exposure to cooling is set so that it causes cell death of subcutaneous
fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin. Evidence supports its effectiveness at
three to four months.

Side effect include transient local redness, bruising and numbness of the skin are common side
effects of the treatment and are expected to subside.Typically sensory deficits will subside within a
month. The effect on peripheral nerves was investigated and failed to show permanent detrimental
results.No serious long-lasting side effects were encountered during follow-up time of six months.

Ultrasound Cavitation uses ultrasound to rupture fat cells, turning the cells into liquid can then be
carried away as waste. The cavitation is used to help with inch loss and to target pockets of fat.
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.

Radio Frequency selectively heats skin tissues which can causes collagen fibres to contract
produce new collagen – designed to provide tighter looking skin.
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.

3D Dermology and Radio Frequency can then be used to drain away useless fat cells through
the lymphatic system by using special vacuum suction and rollers. 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.

Each method of treatment takes between 30-60 minutes and clients having the procedure are
encouraged to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle to get the best results.

What is 3D Lipo Plus Z-Wave treatment
We all understand that post-treatment massage is important after Cryolypolisis and many other
body sculpting procedures. However, manual massage is subject to great variability as results
depend on the technique applied by the medical assistance. With the Zwave we can control the
pulse and speed for optimal results, it's more comfortable than a manual massage (for both the
patient and my staff). This has been confirmed to double the effectiveness of the procedure.
The high energy radial shockwaves scientifically proved to have a large impact on collagen
structure and the skin connective tissue, improving blood circulation.
It stimulates collagen formation, while the skin becomes more elastic and its firmness is visible
after only a few treatments.

Thanks to the ZWave radial shockwave unit, it is also possible to significantly improve skin
firmness, skin elasticity and collagen regeneration.
By adding the Zwave to 3D-Lipo we have seen a large improvement in results. So in our practice
was always use the Zwave with every 3D Lipo Cryolypolisis procedure in order to bring the best
possible results to our patients! We offer 4 free Z-Wave treatments after every 3D Lipo
Cryolypolisis.

When will the results appear?

Positive results from treatment will be seen after the first session and over the following few
months as the body metabolises the destroyed fat cells and new collagen formation occurs to
tighten skin. Better results in fat reduction and skin tightening will be seen with each additional
treatment. Fat cells will continue to be flushed out of the body, up to 6 months following treatment.

How Long does it Last?

There is no reason why the results seen from a 3D-lipo procedure shouldn’t be permanent if the
recommended treatment regime is followed. Weight gain or hormonal factors could affect long term
results so you are advised to adopt an appropriate diet and lifestyle plan after your treatment
programme ends. You will not be required to follow a specific exercise regime during or after your
treatment however.

You may be advised to have top-up treatments on an annual basis to maintain the results.
Not to be Used In

As with most cosmetic procedures it should not be used in women who are pregnant or breast
feeding, or on any areas of skin that are affected by wounds or injury.

Those with pacemakers or metal implants within their body may not be suitable for treatment.
A full medical history should be taken before treatment and if you have any concerns about your
suitability you should consult a doctor before undergoing any treatment
