The Science of Lipofirm PLUS
The benefits of LipofirmPLUS treatments are both short and long term. You will see a marked improvement straight away, which like a regular superficial face or body treatment will fade over the next 2-3 days. The greatest benefit of these treatments however is in the long term, and the fact that the effect will continue to improve over a period of 6 months.
Short term - Contraction of existing collagen
Long Term - New collagen formation, elastic fibres and hyaluronic acid
Final Effect - Redefining and remodelling
Ultrasonic cavitation, also known as aesthetic cavitation, is a revolutionary new approach to fat reduction that does not involve surgery or invasive procedures.
Ultrasound technology has been used for many years and has been proven to be completely safe. The treatment is an effective alternative to liposuction and works by targeting and destroying fat cells without damaging any other tissue or organs. Fat cells take up to ten years to regenerate so all the fat cells in the body can regenerate over 5-10 years. Therefore the effect of the treatment can be long term and can be maintained with minimal top up treatments.
Following treatment the fat released from the cells is transported to the liver where it is processed in the same way as fat from the diet and when we break down fat to use as energy. Some will be excreted by the kidneys but it is helpful to stick to a low calorie diet and maintain activity levels particularly on the day of the treatment so the extra fat released by the ultrasound procedure can be burned up and used as energy rather than being stored elsewhere by the body.
Collagen is the Holy Grail of youthful skin and gives your skin elasticity, freshness and moisture. Sagging skin on the neck, décolleté and face along with wrinkles are common problems associated with aging and the steady depletion of collagen production over the years. LipofirmPLUS treatments will build up your collagen store to ensure that your skin regains and retains elasticity, moisture and vitality.
Tissue Retraction: The LipofirmPLUS system uses radio frequency to produce generated heat that causes local contraction of the collagen fibres, immediately tightening the skin to remodel and re-juvenate skin.
Collagen Formation: The process also stimulates the bodys natural collagen formation by heating the deeper skin layers which then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening, which only becomes evident slowly over the next few months.
Improved Circulation: Radiofrequency also improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage and provides a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.
Due to this double action the radio frequency treatment can be used for an immediate short term effect as well as for long term results. If you are lucky enough to already enjoy youthful looking skin, LipofimPLUS treatments will ensure you stay that way!
Radio Frequency has an excellent safety record and has been used in Dermatology, Cardiology and ENT for over 70 years.
