Giving up chocolate to lose a bit of fat?

Body    Giving up chocolate to lose a bit of fat?

Thinking of giving up chocolate for Lent, but know you’re going to struggle? We’ve all been there; feeling depressed about the extra pounds gained over the Christmas period, that simply won’t go despite hitting the gym with renewed vigour in January. However, we might have a solution for you.

What if we were to tell you we can provide you with a non-invasive body contouring or liposuction type treatment that may help you lose inches around in just a couple of weeks, without having to give up the sweet stuff? Although, obviously, if you’re planning to give up sugary treats as well, you may get an even better result!

Here at the Aesthetics Lab in Primrose Hill near St Johns Wood, we have a number of different treatments to melt fat cells, firm up wobbly bits and give you a more attractive figure. Let’s have a look at how we do it.

Liposuction via acoustic wave therapy near St Johns Wood

This treatment uses radial waves to remove fat cells and increase collagen production. A handheld probe is held against stubborn pockets of fat, or areas of cellulite. Following treatment your circulation and metabolism should be increased to give you a greater cell turnover, hence you should notice that your skin is fresher and firmer in these areas, with increased tissue elasticity. A fat breakdown is stimulated and its exit directed through the lymphatic system.

Body contouring via radio frequency treatment

In this treatment radiofrequency and ultrasound waves (a different wavelength to the radial waves used in acoustic wave therapy) are delivered into deep skin areas using the award-winning Exilis Elite device. Again, fat cells will be broken down and collagen production increased. You will feel a warming sensation during the treatment delivery, but you won’t be in any pain.

The Derm Review, an online skin magazine, released their findings about the effectiveness of the Exilis Elite machine and announced it produced ‘strong, visible results’, but if you’d like further proof of how a figure can change after just a few treatment sessions, please have a look at our before and after galleries.


Designed to remove bodily waste and toxins in order to boost your circulatory and lymphatic systems, this treatment involves you applying a sleeve to the targeted limb, or climbing into a full body suit, which will then inflate and deflate. You will experience a pressure massage which can help tone your body and provide you with a more flattering shape.

All of our body contouring and liposuction treatments in Primrose Hill near St Johns Wood are non-invasive. This means you won’t experience downtime or surgical scarring. If you’d like to find out more about the difference we can make to your figure, please give our friendly reception team a call to book a consultation with one of our professional practitioners. We look forward to answering all your questions and providing you with the information you need.
