Face & Next Lifting
Three technologies to deliver results
Our revolutionary non-surgical technologies deliver unrivalled treatments for body shaping and fat reduction, targeting three key areas: cellulite reduction, inch loss, and skin tightening.
Our two-step, non-invasive liposuction treatment combines ultrasonic cavitation, radio frequencies and, where necessary for optimum results, vacuum technologies to treat stubborn areas of fat on the body and face.
1) Ultrasonic cavitation
ProMax Lip selectively targets the body's fat cells without affecting neighbouring tissue. Sound waves penetrate deep into the fat layer causing vibrations and the formation of microbubbles within the interstitial fluid. As these bubbles collapse, the resulting shock wave leads to a temporary change in the fat cell membrane allowing lipids (fats) to escape the cell. The fats are then removed via the body’s own immune system over the following 2 to 3 days. This technology is perfect for stubborn areas of fat that prove unresponsive to exercise, such as the abdomen, upper arms and outer thighs.
2) Multi-polar Radio Frequency & Vacuum
Using controlled waves of energy to heat the fat cells, this technology increases circulation, reduces the appearance of cellulite and increases fat cell metabolism. The thermal energy also results in instant collagen contraction and creates long-term improvement in collagen fibres for firmer, tighter skin. Vacuum massage technology provides powerful lymphatic drainage to process the lipids released during cavitation and remove toxins to further improve the appearance of cellulite.
3) Bipolar Radio Frequency
This technology emits waves at just the right frequency to cause dermal heating within facial tissues. The result? Instant tightening and lifting! This is perfect for use around the eyes, jawline and neck. Promax Lipo provides instant tightening of the skin and also encourages longer-term collagen stimulation for a younger, fresher appearance over time. The introduction of vacuum at this stage further improves circulation and removes toxins for a brighter complexion and a reduction in dark circles.

What can I expect during my treatment?
STEP ONE: ULTRASONIC CAVITATION FOR THE BODY
Firstly, your practitioner will perform ultrasonic cavitation to treat areas of the body affected by fat and cellulite. Cavitation is defined as being the formation of an empty space within a solid object - for example, the creation of bubbles in a liquid. Your practitioner will start by applying an ultrasound gel on the area to be treated. They will then apply light pressure on the handset; by performing a series of sweeping motions, or a combination of sweeping motions with static periods, areas of stubborn fat and cellulite will be treated and reduced.
The ultrasonic cavitation handset works by employing high-frequency ultrasound waves to penetrate the fat layer, disrupting the fat cell walls. The sound waves cause a harmless chemical reaction which creates microbubbles (the cavitation process) to form in the interstitial fluid - the extracellular fluid that fills the spaces between most of the cells of the body. As these bubbles collapse, they trigger a temporary change in the cell membrane allowing the lipids (fat cells) to "leak" their contents into the interstitial fluid simultaneously turning into the lymph. The 'loose fat' lymph is then drained naturally by your body, via the lymphatic system, into the bloodstream to be processed by the liver and eliminated with sweat, urine and faeces.
To ensure you get the best results from the ultrasonic cavitation process we recommend exercising as soon as possible after your treatment and drinking plenty of water to fully flush out your system.
STEP TWO: RADIO FREQUENCY & VACUUM
The process for step two is dependent on your requirements and the area treated. For example, when treating the body, your practitioner will use multi-polar radio frequency, whereas on the face we use bi-polar radio frequency. A vacuum function may be used, depending on the size and location of the treatment area, to optimise results.
Step two is used to tighten skin and reduce cellulite. Multi-polar radio frequencies are combined, through multiple electrodes, or “poles”, to target the top and deep layers of the skin. Your practitioner will start by applying a radio frequency lotion on the area treated. They will then, through continuous slow movements, gradually heat the treatment area - some clients find this process mildly uncomfortable; please don't hesitate to speak with your practitioner if you find this to be the case. If a vacuum treatment is also required, this will be performed at the same time as the radio frequency process.
The radio frequency and vacuum handset has two functions; the primary function is to emit radio frequency waves to tighten the skin. Radio waves are created when an electric field interacts with a magnetic field, causing vibrations that can travel through a vacuum. With radio frequency treatments, highly controlled waves of energy create heat in the deep dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin. This heating process aids circulation, in turn increasing fat cell metabolism to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve collagen firmness. In addition, when exposed to radio frequency waves the skin contracts and vibrates, causing pores to close and to become smaller and the skin to tighten. With additional treatments, this tightening effect can be maintained.
The vacuum massage is used to assist the body's lymphatic drainage system, which releases lipids during cavitation and removes toxins from the body.
Promax can also be used to tighten skin on the face and neck.
What can I expect after my treatment?
You may experience some mild heat, swelling and redness on the skin, which usually lasts for only a few hours; your practitioner may apply a soothing gel to cool where required.
To get the most out of your treatment we require that you increase your water intake before and after the treatment, therefore you may notice slightly more lavatory visits than usual!
Exercise is an essential element to obtain the best results, we would ask that you exercise within 72 hours of the treatment to maximise the effectiveness of the treatment.
Why choose MEDfacials?
We offer the highest standard of treatment and service at competitive prices
We are a Doctor-led clinic; our clinic has fully trained medical professionals available to answer your questions
Ultrasonic cavitation is carried out by our fully qualified Aesthetic Doctor and Aesthetic Practitioners who are specially trained and highly experienced in carrying out laser treatments
Providing patients with the right aftercare is important to us, your practitioner will advise you in the best way to maximise the benefits of ProMax Lipo after your treatment.
Non-Surgical Liposuction results and benefits vary and are different for every individual. Specific results cannot be guaranteed. Whilst some results are instant, the stimulation of collagen is gradual and we would recommend repeated sessions to allow the body to adapt and fully benefit from the treatment. We do not perform ultrasonic cavitation on the face; facial treatments start at stage two.
