Fat Freezing and Skin Tightening Review


I undertook to try fat freezing (Cryolipolysis) with Sabrina from Aphrodite Laser & Beauty Clinic, in her clinic in Clane, Co Kildare, over 10 months ago. The treatment was very successful and Sabrina felt that I didn’t need another treatment of fat freezing. I did have loose skin and a lot of stretch marks from having three big babies and yo-yo dieting over the years so Sabrina recommended a course of radio frequency treatments to tighten the loose skin and improve the appearance of stretch marks.

Sabrina used one of the most advanced machines available which targets fat, cellulite and contours the body. 3D Lipo is the new 3-Dimensional approach to fat loss, skin tightening, cellulite elimination and skin tightening.

Why is 3D Lipo different to all the other systems?

The 3D-Lipo gives several options and combinations to target and successfully treat stubborn fat areas and cellulite. These are Cavitation and Cryolipolysis for fat blasting inch loss, Radio Frequency for skin tightening and 3D Dermology for cellulite removal.

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis involves safely freezing an area of excess fat by using a specially designed cooling applicator, applied to the desired area of fat reduction, to extract energy (cooling) from the underlying fat tissue.

The applicator cup uses a gentle vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels. During the procedure, the applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling conditions that have been proven to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body.


When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they crystalize and trigger a process of natural removal that gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. Between 20-40% of the fat cells begin a natural permanent removal process that continues for 2-4 months. The natural removal of fat cells over time results in gradual but very noticeable permanent fat layer reduction. Fat freezing for pockets of fat and if you are within one to two stone of your ideal weight.

What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

For many people fat reduction is only part of their concern. There is also the need to improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body. 3D-lipo’s 3-dimensional approach to the problem ensures that not only will you experience fat reduction and cellulite improvement from Cavitation but with the addition of Radio Frequency we are also able to add targeted skin tightening.

How does Radio Frequency work?

If you’re looking for ways to tighten your skin without the extended healing time, pain, and expense of cosmetic surgery, you may want to consider radio frequency skin tightening. This procedure is a non-surgical option for people who want to treat wrinkles, sagging, loose skin and stretch marks. It uses radio frequency (RF) energy on the skin, heating up the various skin layers to around 38 degrees to encourage collagen and elastin production.


Tripollar Radio Frequency Questions

Is Tripollar treatment a pleasant and relaxing experience?

I would compare it to a warm massage. I found it very relaxing.  Gel is applied to your skin, and then Sabrina massaged the area with the radio frequency head for 30 minutes. The Tripollar device targets the exact tissue needing correction – while providing a lovely sensation in the process. The procedure lasts about 30-45 minutes. There is no downtime after the treatment – you can return to your normal activities immediately. There are usually no side effects to Tripollar. The treated area may appear pink and feel warm to the touch for several hours after your treatment.


How many treatments are recommended?

Sabrina says that Tripollar is most beneficial in six weekly sessions followed by treatments four times a year for maintenance.
