Technologies Explained

This page gives detailed descriptions of all the technologies we use here at the clinic and what they’re best for.

3D – Cavitation

Best for
Overall fat reduction on large area such as

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Inner thighs
  • Muffin top
  • Bingo wings

Tech explained
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes which cannot withstand this pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state.

What happens to the released fat?
The liquefied fat is transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver.

The liver makes no difference between the fat coming from the 3D – Cavitation treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed through the body’s natural mechanisms.

How many treatments are recommended?
A minimum course of 6-8 treatments are recommended to achieve optimum results but depending on the area to be treated, your therapist will advise the best treatment plan for you.

What results can I expect from this treatment?
Results can be seen from treatment 1, with an average loss 2-5cm. Results will be improved during each treatment but vary between individuals.

Can I combine 3D-Cavitation with other treatments?
Yes, 3D- Cavitation can often be combined with other treatments depending on what you are looking to achieve. Your therapist will devise the best tailored treatment program which may incorporate the addition of other technologies.

What will I experience during treatment?
The size of the treatment area determines the duration of the session. During treatment, a handheld device delivering ultrasound energy gently glides over the marked area. The majority of treated patients consistently report a painless and comfortable experience.

3D – Cryo Freeze (Fat Freezing)

Best for
Stubborn pocket of fat and body sculpting such as

  • Double chin
  • Lower Abdomen
  • Inner thighs
  • Muffin tops
  • Back boobs
  • Man boobs

Tech explained
3D- Cryo Freeze is a unique non-invasive treatment using electro and cryo therapy. Using the 3D -Cryo Freeze handpiece, this creates vacuum which draws the fat into the handpiece. The localised area within the handpiece is then frozen, causing 20%-40% of the fat cells in the area to die.

How this tech works?
3D-Cryo Freeze targets specifically the fat cells. By lowering the temperature to -6 degrees it pinpoints the content of the fat cells, causing them to crystallize. No other structures are affected by this process. The remaining content of the fat cells is then dispersed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic systems.

How many treatments are recommended?
Only ONE treatment is required per area.

What results can I expect from this treatment?
On average you will see a 20%-40% reduction of the fat in the localised area. As the body takes several months to flush out the dead fat cells, results will be visible after 6 -12 weeks.

Can I combine 3D-Cavitation with other treatments?
3D- Cryo- Freeze is a one off treatment, however, it can be devised as a part of a course of treatments depending on your goals, your therapist will discuss this with you. After the weight loss, the loose skin can be tightened/tones with a course of radio frequency.

What will I experience during treatment?
First of all, an anti-freeze pad is placed onto the area of treatment, to protect the skin. During the treatment the fat is drawn into a suction cup before freezing. This will provide a slight pulling sensation and the area will be cold. Within a few minutes the area should go numb. The handpiece will be on the area from 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

3D – RF Face and Body

Skin Tightening

Best for
Anti-ageing, skin tightening, smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Forehead
  • Crow’s feet
  • Upper lip
  • Jowls
  • Neck area
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs

Tech explained
3D- RF Face & Body penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen is imbedded. The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblast order to accelerate production of new collagen and elastin fibres to create a smoother , healthier and younger looking skin.

How many treatments are recommended?
A course of treatment is typically advised to achieve maximum results for loose skin, usually 6-8 treatments. Some may be less depending on the depth of the wrinkles.

What results can I expect from this treatment?
Results can be seen as soon as after your first treatment, however a course of treatments are recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.

Can I combine 3D-RF Face & Body with other treatments?
3D- Face & Body can be performed standalone. The treatment is recommended for skin tightening and anti-ageing for the face and body. However, your therapist may choose to combine 3D- RF Face & Body with other treatments to provide you with a bespoke facial depending on your skin.

What will I experience during treatment?
3D- Face & Body is a relaxing treatment. Product will be applied to the skin, this acts as a conductor for the 3D RF Face & Body energy. The small handpiece will be placed onto your skin and moved in gentle circular motions. A slight beeping noise will come from the machine, the handpiece will get warmer and warmer, building heat until it reaches 40 degrees. Your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once temperature has built up to 40 degrees, your therapist will continue to maintain the heat, continuing treatment on the area for 2-4 minutes, before moving on the next area.

3D – HIFU Body

Targeted fat removal.

Best for

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

Tech explained
3D- HIFU High Intensity Focused Ultrasound delivers focused energy under the skin to destroy the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated. The damaged cells are flushed away via a natural removal process through the lymphatic system that continues for up to 3 months.

How many treatments are recommended?
A single treatment per area is recommended.

What results can I expect from this treatment?
Noticeable results can be seen from 2-4 months post treatment.

What will I experience during treatment?
A hand piece will be placed on the skin to deliver focused energy to the fat cells for approximately

2 minutes. This will be repeated 3 times per treatment area. During the treatment you may feel the warmth of the energy being delivered, in some cases, it may get slightly hot or uncomfortable.

You may also feel a slight vibration and tingling sensation, although this is completely normal.

How long will the treatment take?
The treatment will be approximately 30-60 minutes in total per application.

Is there any downtime with this treatment?
There is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away and there is no special after care that you need to undertake, we just advise to drink plenty of water post treatment and to avoid heat for 24 hours.

3D – HIFU Face Lift

Non-surgical facelift

Best for

  • Face
  • Neck

Tech explained
3D- HIFU High Intensity Focused Ultrasound delivers focused energy to stimulate the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skin surface. The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen resulting in a lifted, firmer and toned appearance of the skin.

Who is a good candidate for 3D-HIFU Face?
It is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of, an often feeling, less firm, i.e. tired.

Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are good candidates.

How many treatments are recommended?
It is a one off treatment with a recommended maintenance top up every 18 months to combat the ageing process.

What results can I expect from this treatment?
Clients may witness some initial effect, but the ultimate “lifting and firming” will take place over 2-3 months post treatment, as collagen is renewed and replaced with new stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, continued improvements can appear up to six months following a treatment.

What will I experience during treatment?
A hand piece will be placed on the skin to deliver focussed energy to the fat cells for approximately

2 minutes. This will be repeated 3 times per treatment area. During the treatment you may feel the warmth of the energy being delivered, in some cases, it may get slightly hot or uncomfortable. But this is short lived and a good sign that the collagen restructuring process has been started.

How long will the treatment take?
The treatment will be approximately 30-60 minutes in total per application.

Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for about an hour following the procedure, and a low percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to touch but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Is there any downtime with this treatment?
There is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away and there is no special after care that you need to undertake, we just advise to drink plenty of water post treatment and to avoid heat for 24 hours.
