A quick overview…
Radio Frequency treatments are designed as a way to remove fat in the body in a very targeted way. It is pain free, completely safe, carries no unpleasant side affects and is totally non-invasive.
We use a hand held probe which is moved over the skin. The probe pulls the tissue inside by means of a vacuum and then the radio frequency wave hits the fat cell and causes the walls to become weak and the contents to become liquid.
The liquid fat is then transferred to your body’s systems to be disposed of through the liver.
At the same time, the radio frequency wave encourages the body to produce new collagen which has the effect of tightening and toning the skin and improving its appearance.
Lots of celebrities endorse this type of treatment, Gwyneth Paltrow has been very vocal about the radio frequency treatments she has to keep her youthful appearance.

The Science Bit…
Do you want to know more? Read on to understand the science behind this clever fat reducing treatment…
Ultrasonic Cavitation is a sound wave which has been designed to target fat cells, it penetrates through your bodies skin layers and destroys the fat cells with up to 1 million vibrations per second, this causes the cell to expand because tiny bubbles of oxygen are formed within the cell which causes internal pressure in the cell which in turn then causes it to disperse its contents into the body.
Radio Frequency and Vacuum Suction
The Radio Frequency part of the treatment is designed to clean up the content left in the body from the ultrasonic cavitation treatment. this is done by increasing the body temperature which causes capillary dilation enabling a faster, more efficient blood circulation, the vacuum then causes better blood to fat exchange, then the fat enriched blood is circulated and processed through your liver, which cleans your blood whilst removing the fat, Radio Frequency also has the ability to shrink loose skin and repair collagen /Elastin in the skin
The ultrasound wave is finely tuned to target fat cells only, it causes no damage to the skin veins nerve endings or internal organs.
We have the latest technology in the world using the third generation machine, which uses ultrasonic cavitation, radio frequency, vacuum, photon light energy and touch screen safety controls.
New to the UK an alternative to outdated liposuction, a painless non-invasive procedure which targets and destroys fat cells only, leaves veins, arterys, capillaries, nerve endings, and internal organs untouched and undamaged.
Treatments are suitable are for both men and women, it removes celluite, scars, stretch marks, fat cells and will shrink loose skin after dramatic weight loss or child birth.

- Follow a healthy balanced diet, with fresh fruit and vegetables
- Complete 30 minutes of exercise at least 3 times a week
- Avoid alcohol 24 hours post treatment, alcohol will cause dehydration adding to your liver’s workload
If you follow these simple rules you will have the best possible chance of success. Your liver will do all the hard work, getting rid of the unwanted fat cells.
Using the same machine as our popular body sculpting treatment, Our facials consist of the R.F. vacuum glided over the skin to increase blood flow and remove toxins towards the lymph nodes which then process them to be removed from the body. The increased circulation and metabolism also helps to renew broken collagen.
The next step is closing the pores using our cold hammer to keep the collagen inside the skin whilst preventing daily pollution entering the cleansed pores.
The last step is the E.M.S (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) this part of the treatment, two metal probes are applied around the muscles motor point, then the electrical current contracts the muscles. This improves the texture and tone of the skin and gives a a natural looking face lift with no pain.
It reduces under eye bags, diminishes age wrinkles, tightens eye lids and also smooths your skin.
Using the Ultrasonic Cavitation machine our therapists can enhance your breasts to make them smoother and more uplifted.
This is achieved by using the vacuum cup to stimulate the lymph and blood circulation in the area. It also speeds up metabolism which will improve the smoothness by removing all the toxins in the area. The suction part of the vacuum can also strengthen the pectoralis major and mammary glands, which will also stimulate the body tissue and pituitary gland to adjust the female endocrine system which increases the estrogen in the body.
This causes a natural breast lift even after the treatment. This treatment is perfect for women who have lost weight or have breast fed.
