This month our new columnist Lee-Anne McCloskey from SKiN Aesthetic Clinic gives us the lowdown on the new treatment that is taking the beauty world by storm…

Hi, I’m Lee-Anne from SKiN Aesthetic Clinic and i’m excited to be writing this column for local women!

We’re halfway through the summer and for of us we haven’t quite managed to reach our summer body goal.

It’s just too hard to stick to our diets when we lead such busy lives and the last thing we want to do at the end of a busy dayis to spend our evening cooking in the kitchen. This is where our groundbreaking treatment at the clinic.

LipoContrast, Works like magic.

LipoContrast is the most effective non-invasive fat reduction treatment to enter the Aesthetic and beauty market.

Here at SKiN Aesthetic Clinic, we are officially the only clinic in Ireland to currently offer this advanced procedure.

What does the treatment involve?

The specific treatment has been scientifically developed over numerous years, proving superior to simply cooling or heating the fat cells – LipoContrast does both.

LipoCotrast delivers rapid results by heating, cooling and re-heating the fat cells, reducing body fat without damage or invasive methods. It’s a painless way to lose weight, and with lasting results, 33% of the treated fat tissue will be eliminated and gradually broken down through the metabolic system, with approximately 80% of the final result being visible within 20 days.

Once your 60 minute LipoContrast session is finished. Your typical daily activities can be resumed straight after, including returning to work and exercise regimes.

The one hour session freezes fat cells in stubborn fatty areas and a large percentage of fat can be eliminated in just on treatment.

What are the benefits?

LipoContrast offers almost immediate results as fat cells are immediately disabled and eliminated within a few days. Other cells enter into a severe apoptosis phase and are progressively eliminated within a few weeks.

Depending on the adipose tissue thickness and your desired result, one to three sessions will be necessary. With an approximate interval of four weeks between each one – much shorted than cryo-lipo alternatives, giving you quicker, long lasting results.

LipoContrast avoids the traumatic experience of other invasive, fat loss methods such as liposuction. It also prevents contiguous tissue damage that can occur with other methods that use radio frequency, ultrasounds or lasers.

Where does LipoContrast work best?

LipoContrast can target many different areas, reducing fat on your waist, flanks, abdomen, love handles, lower back, upper back, hips, thighs, knees, Gynecomastia (moobs) double chin and arms through multi sized applicators.

Does it last?

The number of fat cells we have does not increase with weight gain, it is the fat cell themselves that grow. Once a fat cell is destroyed and metabolised by the body, it does not grow back.

Therefore, the results of LipoContrast should be permanent. Providing a healthy diet and exercise is maintained and further weight gain is avoided.
