Q. How effective is a Lipoglaze® treatment?
A. The Lipoglaze system uses a powerful non-invasive suction to target areas of your body with unwanted/ excess fat. A single Lipoglaze treatment can destroy on anywhere between 11-59% of fat in one single treatment.
Q. Am I a good candidate for Fat Freezing?
A. Freezing is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they'd like to get rid of. Your therapist will determine if treatment is right for you during a free one-to-one consultation.
Q. What does it feel like?
A. The cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel a strong pressure and intense cold. This soon dissapates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during the treatment.
Q. How many Lipoglaze® sessions will I require?
A. The number of sessions you require will depend on your desired result in mind. This will be discussed upon your initial consultation, however typically an individual will require a minimum of 1 treatment in order to achieve results.
Q. How long will the results last?
A. The longevity of the results will be lifestyle dependent, however can last for years if a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Further information of which will be discussed at consultation.
Q. Can I treat more than one area at a time?
A. Yes! You can have a maximum of four areas treated in one session. This will take approximately two hours.
Q. What will my results be?
A. Each treatement results in a significant noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area, typically between 20% to 40%. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even greater fat loss. Many clients find that just one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your therapist will discuss a design plan that suits you best.
Q. Are there any side effects with Lipoglaze®?
A. As with many cosmetic treatments, side effects occur as an initial response to treatment however more often than not die down instantly. All potential side effects will be discussed during consultation however the more common ones you can expect following treatment are:
Numbness (dies down after a couple of hours)
Q. How do I take care of myself after the Lipoglaze® treatment?
In order to achieve optimum results, we strongly recommend the following:
Increase your fluid intake (water) to assist with the ‘flushing’ out of the crystallized lipids in the fat cells
Lymphatic massage will accelerate the process of removing the fat cells.
Regular body brushing at home is a great way of stimulating the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells
Exercise a minimum of 1 hour a week
It is extremely important for us to be able to monitor your measurements post Lipoglaze® procedure.
* Please note: should any adverse reaction occur including a cold injury, or painful blisters. Please seek medical attention from a doctor specialising in the treatment of burns.
Q. How does HIFU work? HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’. During this treatment, ultrasound energy is used to stimulate the deep layers which support the skin. In doing so it creates a lifted, more taut appearance and stimulates the body to produce collagen.
Q. Who is suitable for HIFU treatment?
A suitable candidate is someone who is aged 30+ who has noticed that the skin on their face or neck has become more lax and wishes to lift and tighten the relevant area. For patients in their 30s it is typically used to stimulate collagen production and hence help delay the ageing process. Patients in their 40s and 50s are the most common age group who have this treatment.
It is also suitable for those aged 60+ provided the degree of laxity is not too great. It is also for those who have had surgery in the past to prolong the effects of surgical facelifts.
Q. What can be treated using HIFU?
Mid face lifting
Nasolabial fold reduction
Neck lifting and tightening
Overall skin tightening and rejuvenation
Q. How long until I see results?
Clients may witness some initial effect, but ultimately lifting and firming will take place over approximately 3 months, as collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, continued improvements can appear for up to 6 months.*
How long do 3D-HIFU results last?
Most people find results last over 1 year, although yearly touch-up treatments are recommended to stay ahead of the ageing process. *
Does it hurt?
Most people do not report pain. There can be slight aching over bony areas or a warm sensation in the skin during treatment.
Is it safe?
Thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide using HIFU technology without significant adverse events. In addition, ultrasound energy has been used safely in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
Is 3D-HIFU classed as surgery?
No. While the ultrasound treatment does target the deep layer of skin often addressed in surgery, it does not involve general anaesthetic or cutting the skin in any way.
Can 3D-HIFU replace a face lift?
Although 3D-HIFU is not a replacement for surgery, it is ideal for people who wish to uplift the face and neck but who are not ready for surgery – either psychologically, financially or logistically. It is considered more of an ‘uplift’ than a ‘facelift’ and can be combined with other non-surgical lifting treatments to further enhance the results.*
Who is a good candidate for 3D-HIFU?
A good candidate is someone who is aged 30+ who has noticed that the skin on their face or neck has become more lax and wishes to lift and tighten the relevant area. For patients in their 30s it is typically used to stimulate collagen production and hence help delay the ageing process. Patients in their 40s and 50s are the most common age group who have this treatment. It is also for those aged 60+ or who have had surgery in the past to prolong to effects of surgical facelifts.*
How long does the treatment take?
Between 30-90 minutes, depending on area to be treated.
What kind of results do you get with 3D-HIFU treatment?
Ultherapy addresses skin that is mild to moderately loose or lax, specifically by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within. Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the eyelids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. Patients have reported firmer, more toned skin in others areas of the face and neck as well.
Q. Will I need more than one 3D HIFU treatment?
The majority of patients need only one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen rebuilding process).
Q. Is there any downtime?
There is normally no downtime or recovery time needed. Most people return to normal activities right away.
Q. Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness following the treatment. A small amount of patients report swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch. All potential side effects will be discussed by the practitioner prior to treatment.
Q. How is the vaginal tightening procedure performed?
Vaginal tightening is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment to restore and to restructure vaginal tissue without the use of anaesthetic or numbing creams.
The procedure involves high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment that utilises a powerful ultrasound energy, applying concentrated thermal heating to the inner layers (SMAS) of vaginal tissue. The heat induces contraction of collagen and elastin and allows for long-term change by stimulating regeneration of these essential proteins. The accuracy of the procedure allows total control over the movement and intensity of the ultrasound to ensure maximum comfort for every patient.
Q. Why choose Non-surgical vaginal tightening?
The treatment is painless, non-invasive and lasts 20-minutes
No suggested recovery time
Improved muscle strength, tone, and elasticity of vaginal muscles
Increased sensation during intercourse
Improved control over urinary incontinence
