Fat removal using Ultrasound, Cryo Freezing and Radio Frequency technologies are safe and pain free treatments that can target those unwanted pockets of fat that stubbornly refuse to budge just by exercise and dieting alone.
Ultrasound is widely recognized now as the most effective non-invasive method to treat larger areas of fat deposits and cellulite. Applying this technology promotes Cavitation which is a natural phenomenon caused by the ultrasound waves which produces pressure on the fat cell membrane wall which ultimately gives way and disintegrates into a liquid state – in effect melting! After disruption of this adiopos cellular membrane the fat, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the interstitial space between the cells where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed in the same way as fatty acids from food. This process continues for several days after treatment.
Cryo Freezing is one of the latest innovative techniques we have introduced to great effect utilizing a combination of cryo and electro therapy. The treatment area is frozen by lifting the target area skin into a vacuum between two freezing plates. The fat cells are then lowered to -6 degrees Celsius at which point the cells crystalise and are permanently destroyed no other cells are affected at this temperature level. The fat cells are then disposed of by the body in the same manner as Cavitation and commonly take around 8 weeks to fully take effect. Fat cell levels can be reduced from 20-40% per treatment .
Fractional Focus Radio Frequency is another technology we use to precisely delivery energy and heat the lower sub dermis layers to also promote cell membrane collapse. The cells are gently heated up to 41 degrees Celsius at which point the fat cell membrane collapses while surrounding skin cells are unaffected at this temperature. This is particularly useful on areas of the body where ultrasound is not appropriate or difficult to apply and particularly effective for cellulite reduction treatments.
