Are you thinking about getting your body prepped for summer? Holidays? a Event? or just for self confidence?


3-D Lipo

Here at The Banwell Clinic we offer 3D Lipo – this treatment is non- surgical helping with fat reduction, cellulite, skin tightening (for the face and body) and body contouring. 3D Lipo is often in the national headlines with many celebrities raving about the treatment.

If your looking for a treatment to give you body confidence this summer or all year round look no further. This treatment can work on multiple areas; buttocks, thighs, stomach, backs and arms. Even if your eating healthy, going to the gym or drinking plenty of water some of us can struggle to get rid of stubborn cellulite or stubborn fat pockets. This treatment will work on the areas you are struggling with – 3D Lipo works with methods such as ‘Cavitation’, ‘Radio frequency’, ‘Shockwave’ and ‘Cryolipolysis’.

The Benefits

Cavitation –

this is an overall fat reduction. Best in a course of 8 (weekly appointments to achieve optimum results) – It can work on areas such as abdomen, thighs and ‘muffin top’. You can loose an average of 2-4cm per treatment (as long as your sticking to being healthy alongside the treatment). The ultrasound from cavitation produces strong wave pressure to fat cells that the fat cell can not withstand therefore disperses into a liquid this is then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver.

Radio frequency –

this is great for anti-ageing and skin tightening. RF heats up the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen and fibres are embedded. Waking up new collagen and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier  and younger looking skin. With radio frequency we can work on your face and body.

Shockwave –

is a good all rounder to accelerate above treatments. Works on stubborn pockets of fat, skin tightening and cellulite. Can be performed on outer and inner thighs, knees, arms, hips, buttocks and stomach. The shockwave shrinks fats, activates the metabolism, increases blood supply and softens and strengthens connective tissues.

Cryo –

Cryolipolysis works on stubborn pockets of fat and is good for body sculpting. This requires one treatment per area –  working on stubborn areas that just won’t shift. This uses a vacuum which draws the fat up into the headpiece. This localised area is then frozen causing 20%-40% of the fat cells in that area to die. Areas typically worked on are: inner thighs, lower abdomen and ‘muffin tops’.


HIFU body –

works on fat, body sculpting and targeted fat removal. HIFU Body uses technology that targets specific focus areas of fat in the fastest possible treatment time. Using high frequency ultrasound waves this heats under the skin and effectively destroys fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated. Results are seen from 2-4months. This only requires one treatment per area.


3D LIPO is a completely bespoke treatment to each individual – once you have had a thorough consultation with our aesthetician Addie and agreed on the outcome you’d like. Addie will choose one or a few options from above.

How does it feel?

3D Lipo is completely pain free, you may get slight redness on the skin after your treatment but this will subside – In fact whilst having parts of the treatment it can feel slightly warm and like a massage. Its completely non-invasive with little to no down time – you can resume back to normal day to day activities after. Some use the term ‘lunch time lipo’ because of this!

How often will you need a treatment?

3D Lipo is usually booked in for a course of 6-8 treatments weekly. Once the course in finished to maintain results we recommend monthly maintenance. This will be carefully planned out after a thorough consultation as every individual is different.

3D-LIPO is great at improving the appearance of your body but you have to remember that this isn’t a weight loss programme although it makes you loose inches you do need to be eating healthy and exercising alongside the treatment or course of treatments.
