3D Lipo is an innovative treatment system that offers a range of advanced, highly effective, body sculpting treatments to help clients improve their body shape without surgery. Combining some of the very latest technologies for non-surgical aesthetic procedures, the 3D-lipo system incorporates handpieces for cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing), radiofrequency, Ultrasound cavitation, dermatology and shockwave therapy.
Cryolipolisis (Fat Freezing)
Fat freezing is best used for stubborn pockets of fat and body sculpting.
3D Cryo-Freeze is a unique non-invasive treatment using a combination of electro and cryo therapy. Using the Cryo-freeze hand piece, this creates vacuum which draws the fat into the hand piece. This localised area within the hand piece is then frozen, causing 20%-40% of the fat cells in that area to die.
Cryo Fat Freezing targets specifically the fat cells. By lowering the temperature to -7 degrees it pinpoints the content of the fat cells, causing them to crystallise. No other structures are affected by this process. The remaining content of the fat cells is then disposed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
This treatment is best for targeting those stubborn areas that just won’t shift. Typical areas ideal for cryolypolisis include inner thighs, lower abdomen and ‘muffin-tops’, however your therapist will provide you with the best possible results which may include combining fat freeze with other technologies as part of a treatment programme. Two areas can now be treated simultaneously with the 3D applicator.
Only one treatment is required per area. 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.
This is a one off treatment, however it can be devised as part of a course of treatments depending on your goals, your therapist will discuss this with you. It is a great one off treatment for targeting stubborn areas, but can also be combined with other technologies on the machine to enhance results.
During the treatment, an anti-freeze pad is placed onto the area of treatment to protect the skin. The fat is drawn into a suction cup before freezing. It will provide a pulling sensation and the area will be cold and within a few minutes the area will go numb. This will be on for 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

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. Each 3D Lipo procedure can be used on its own or combined as a bespoke treatment programme to help achieve excellent body shaping results, destroying fat cells or help to improve the texture, tone and appearance of problem areas. This treatment is perfect for targeting stubborn stomach fat, loose or sagging skin and cellulite.
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.
Each course comprises of 8 weekly sessions. Some clients may need more than one course to get the desired result but this can be discussed during consultation Cavitation – 8 weekly sessions Fat Freezing – 1 session Cryo – 1 off treatment, can have additional treatment 6 weeks post first treatment if combined with shockwave HIFU – 1 session per area (Can be repeated after 9 months) RF Skin tightening – 8 weekly sessions Shockwave therapy – 8 weekly sessions Often modalities will be combined to create a bespoke treatment plan
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. 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.
Some individuals might experience a little redness, bruising and discomfort in the treatment area, both during and after treatment, as well as possible tingling and numbness. All these minor symptoms will be very short-lived, leading to a quick, full recovery.
