During a 3D Lipo treatment, your practitioner will give a full consultation and discuss the best program for you. There are 4 parts to the 3D system and we will use a combination OR stand alone treatment to best suit – its not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ treatment and times/sessions will vary depending your body type. We use a combination of treatments to ensure the best results for your body.
Following 3D Lipo treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice slight temporary redness from the Radio Frequency part of your session, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. Post Fat Freeze, some people may see slight bruising from the vacuum and/or feel a slight tingling sensation as the body resumes to its usual temperature but this is completely normal. There are also some medical contradictions that your consultant will take you through before administering any part of the treatment – but should you have a specific medial concern its best to consult with your GP.

Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is individual, the main part that people find slightly uncomfortable is the 3D Lipo radio frequency treatment due to the heat it activates on your skin. The other elements of 3D Lipo have little or no discomfort. Clients often describe the sensation of the ultra sound cavitation as a warm massage.
How many sessions will you need?
The 3D System is prescriptive – and depends on your body type, what exact program you would need. Generally speaking a course of 1 Freeze + 6 or 9 Sessions on that area gives great results. We offer all the elements of the 3D System as a stand alone treatment but recommend our combo programs for best results for slimming. RF Tightening can be taken for the face as a stand alone for anti-ageing ‘lifting’ results.
What other medical restrictions are there?
The 3D lipo treatment is not suitable for pregnant women or those who are currently breastfeeding.
Full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be advised and discussed your initial consultation.
Aside from the possibility of some mild discomfort directly after each treatment, there are very few risks or side effects, especially compared to traditional liposuction.
3D Lipo is suitable for most people and is non evasive, with no down time – it is recommended not to drink too much alcohol or caffeine 24 hours either side of the treatment. There are however some contraindications, meaning it would be suitable for the following (but not exclusively) for you if you are/have:
