This is the time of year when I always seem to leave it to the very last minute, to flash into action and get my self back in some kind of shape for Christmas. Yes I agree with you, fitness and wellbeing should be a year round commitment – and I have promised myself that that will be the case throughout 2019.
Despite my enthusiastic efforts in the gym over the last few weeks, progress has been slow – however the Christmas train that is fast approaching isn’t going to wait for me with regards to my festive svelteness – so a little bit of help was always going to be very well received.
And that help came in the form of an invitation from Liverpool & Chester Lipo, located on Hunter Street in Chester. A little off the beaten rack, this new Chester clinic is a sanctuary just off bustling Northgate Street. Its state of the art facilities blend well with its period features and its as comfortable as it is private.
I was invited to choose a treatment from their incredible selection of non invasive, fast busting treatments (there really is something to suit every single body) and I went for the 4 Point Tummy Tuck.
The 4 Point Tummy Tuck is the clinic’s signature, non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It involves fat-freezing of the stomach, lower back region and hips, radio-frequency skin tightening and cavi-shock which is a combination of cavitation and shockwave therapy.
The benefits are as follows;
Targets stubborn fat cells that exercise may other wise neglect (very true in my case!!)
Promotes the breakdown of fat cells and is clinically proven to reduce fat by up to 40%.
Helps cellulite and stretch marks by improving blood flow to the treated area.
Treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime.
The whole treatment consists of the following different elements;
FAT REDUCTION – 360 CAVITATION
Ultrasound captivation is a 3D liposuction treatment that eliminates fat cells from the body safely, efficiently and non-invasively. They use targeted ultrasonic waves to destroy fat cells without harming any other cells in your body.
CELLULITE – SHOCKICE
Shockwave works by stimulating the fat break down, collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage. Shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area it emits Radial Waves through the skin.
CELLULITE – RADIO FREQUENCY
This advanced skin treatment has outstanding success for all skin types. It is the latest technology for skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation by utilising minimally invasive micro-needles to deliver controlled radio frequency RF energy directly into various depths of the skin.
The combination of radio frequency and percutaneous needling induces collagen production within the dermis and tightens elastin fibres creating a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
From having absolutely no expectations about this treatment, I was amazed by the results. Firstly, this was a lovely experience from beginning to end. The clinic is immaculate and really comfortable and the staff are delightful! I really felt that Millie and I knew much more about each other at the end of the treatment. She was very well trained, knowledgeable and passionate about her career and the products and equipment that she uses. I felt in very safe hands throughout the experience and I learned a great deal about how these treatments can really restore confidence and wellbeing in every client.
I was shocked to have lost a total of 2.5 inches throughout the treatment, 1 inch of my chest and 1.5 inches from my hips. I felt a significant difference when I put my jeans back on, they fitted so much better and were much more comfortable. My other half even noticed a difference .. and here’s the nest bit; it carries on improving! My physical form was better again this morning and my favourite pair of black skinny jeans are feeling much sexier today than they did a couple of days ago.
I wasn’t sceptical or disbelieving beforehand, but I honestly never could have anticipated these results from just a couple of hours of treatment. Plus it was really relaxing.
A massive thank you to the team at Liverpool Chester Lipo – I will definitely book in for this kind of treatment in the future as the results certainly speak for themselves.
