Let's face it. We are always looking for new and improved ways to lose weight and tone up that doesn't involve exercise and healthy eating.
When an email came into my account launching "3D lipo", I obviously jumped at the chance. With my wedding fast approaching, I've been busy doing personal training and Pilates three times a week. Mix that with a healthy eating plan and you have my current life.
With my wedding fast approaching, I've been busy doing personal training and Pilates three times a week. Mix that with a healthy eating plan and you have my current life. But having done all this hard work, the results are very slow to come so anything that can amplify my toning, cellulite reduction and weight loss is a bonus in my books.
I took a trip down to Clane to see what this celebrity loved revolutionary "Permanent Inch Loss" system was all about.
The Aphrodite Laser and Beauty Clinic is a hidden beauty haven in Clane. There is a both a professional and clinical feel when you walk in but I was immediately put at ease by the clinic's friendly staff.
After my detailed consultation, we decided to target the cellulite on the back of my legs and focus on tightening the skin. A blue gel was applied to the back of my legs and three separate fat elimination techniques were used. It's basically like an ultrasound machine using low-frequency waves that penetrate your skin and dissolve fat cells. The only thing you feel is a slight heat and buzzing effect. The treatment was completely pain-free.
I love it when I go to do a review and the therapist is an abundance of information. Being trained in the beauty field it's always very obvious to me when a therapist doesn't know their stuff.
Sabrina explained all the in's and out's of why this procedure works. You used butter to describe what happens. Our fat cells stick under the surface of our skin, and because our body can't break down saturated fats properly it ends up looking lumpy and bumpy under the skin surface hence why we get cellulite. When the ultrasound machine heats them up they melt like butter, flushed out of your system, removed through your liver. The top layer of your skin is smoothed right out.
The results were instant. And for those of you who haven't already seen enough of me yet - here is more.
You can actually see that my thigh and bum are smoother and more lifted after the first treatment, which is amazing really. My skin is smoother and firmer and the best part is that it will continue to work over the next four months.
I found it fascinating and a real must for anyone wanting to remove stubborn fat cells, cellulite, love handles, bingo wings, post-pregnancy pooch, muffin top, buttock, hips, flabby backs - you get the picture.
The pricing starts from €69 but packages are available. A consultation is needed and is €50.
The bad news - there are only two machines in Ireland.
The good news - the amazing people at Aphrodite Laser and Beauty Clinic based on Main Street, Clane, Co Kildare are giving Beaut readers a free consultation with €50 off treatments over €399.
