ProMax lipo body treatment
Our skin is tightened by a structure of collagen fibres in the dermis in a network of skin cells, fibres and blood capillaries. Below in the hypo-dermis or subcutaneous layer there is supporting fat tissue with strong and elastic collagen fibres, and the circulatory system.
As we age the collagen fibres break down and become less structured and elastic, and our repair and replacement of these become less efficient. External factors such as UV exposure and lifestyle can make this worse. This results in wrinkles and the changes in the deeper tissue lead to sagging often known as skin laxity.
In body areas, changes in and around fat cells in the hypo-dermis, where the supporting collagen fibres and circulatory system become impaired, lead to them becoming less compact and structured causing a raised and dimpled appearance of the skin, a problem known as cellulite.
The Promax lipo combines three advanced technologies to produce maximum results for such skin issues. The treatment encourages uses bi-polar and multi-polar radio frequency, ultrasonic cavitation, and vacuum massage to stimulate lipolysis of fat cells and collagen production.
- Inch loss
- Dramatic cellulite reduction
- Body & facial skin tightening
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation during which details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm your suitability. Before proceeding with treatment you will also be asked to complete a consent form. Contact Us to book your free consultation today.
How does the Promax lipo work?
The Promax lipo utilises not just one but three different technologies to target several concerns. Ultrasound Cavitation is used to create sound waves that affect the permeability of the fat cells, allowing fat to escape and be metabolised. This gives rapid inch-loss as well as a long term reduction in the really stubborn Areas of fat that are typically resistant to exercise such as the abdomen or outer thigh. Safe and effective Radio Frequency energy is applied to the skin causing gentle heating. For the treatment of cellulite the deepest layers of the skin are heated to a temperature which increases local blood circulation, Vacuum Massage then encourages drainage of fatty deposits into the lymphatic system, promotes the breakdown of fibrous tissue and leads to a reduction in the volume in fat cells. During skin tightening procedures, the heating action accelerates collagen production and leads to a contraction of collagen fibres; restructuring and tightening the skin. Particularly good results are seen on post pregnancy ‘lax’ skin and facial skin tightening.
What should I expect after treatment?
The treated area may be pink for a short time after treatment, but this will subside quickly. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. As a result of some of the triglycerides being metabolised by passing into the urinary system it is also quite normal to experience an increased need to go to the toilet. In fact, it is recommended that patients drink increased quantities of water for a short period of time after the treatments to encourage and enhance this particular removal process for the fat cells. Immediately after treatment, contraction of collagen fibres improves skin elasticity and the skin should appear firmer. In Areas of problematic, stubborn fatty deposits, fat is broken down and cellulite reduced.
How many treatments are necessary?
Generally a course of 6-8 sessions is recommended for facial skin tightening and series of 6-12 treatments for the reduction of cellulite, inch loss or slimming
Ultra sonic cavitation
Sound waves penetrate deep into the fat layer causing vibrations, and the formation of microbubbles within the interstitial fluid. As these bubbles collapse the resulting shock wave leads to a temporary change in the fat cell membrane allowing lipids to escape the cell and be ejected by the body.
Perfect for stubborn Areas of fat that prove unresponsive to exercise such as abdomen, upper arms and outer thighs.
Multi-polar radio frequency & vacuum massage
Using controlled waves of energy to heat the fat cells increasing circulation to reduce the appearance of cellulite and increase fat cell metabolism. The thermal energy also results in instant collagen contraction and creates long term improvement to collagen fibres for firmer, tighter skin. Vacuum massage technology provides powerful lymphatic drainage to process the lipids released during cavitation and remove toxins to improve the appearance of cellulite.Click here to enquire about our treatments
