Most patients find the Stretch Mark Reduction treatments extremely comfortable and liken them to a warm deep tissue massage. The treatments are customised to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level, which will be closely monitored by the technician throughout the treatment. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear redder than usual for several hours, but this subside very quickly.

Absolutely! Laser Lipo is an inch-loss phenomenon sweeping the globe! The Laser Lipo inch loss treatment has been featured in many publications such as telegraph.co.uk, Hello, Red and Elle magazines. Indeed, the PureGenesis machine from PureGenex that we use was featured in Bella magazine and is taking the nation by storm!

After completing your course, it is recommended to periodically have maintenance treatments. Like any non-surgical or surgical aesthetic techniques, the results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly, as this provides a stronger platform to maintain your new, healthier complexion.

All off-the-shelf creams or salon-based treatments either bleach the skin, causing irreparable damage to the connective tissues and simply masking the appearance, or use a variety of chemicals and compounds to modify the skin's bio-chemistry. Only Sussex Laser Lipo's unique Stretch Mark Reduction Treatment leverages the most advanced technology available to safely stimulate the totally natural re-construction of the connective tissues within the skin. All this is achieved without introducing and chemicals, needles or foreign bodies and only through the stimulation of completely natural bodily processes!

You will achieve immediate inch loss in the majority of cases, with up to 40% reduction in the fat layer of the treated within 8-12 weeks after treatment.  4D-Cryo treatments are best when delivered as a course of 2 successive treatments, with the second treatment following 14-21 days after the first, for optimal results.

Each individual treatment covers a far larger area than traditional "Fat Freezing", such as the whole front of the abdomen, or both flanks, both arms, both inner thighs, etc. providing far better value for money.If you want to achieve further improvements, additional treatments can be administered to the original treatment area after 12 weeks.

The number of placements required depends upon the area(s) you want to treat and your goals. If you have further questions, please contact us to book in for a free consultation. We can then discuss your personal goals and assess the number of placements required.

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment - with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, more supple and tightened. With a course of treatments, these results will be cumulative. Once the course is completed, final results in circumference reduction, skin rejuvenation and tightening will be most apparent after 6-8 weeks.

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment - with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother and the redness within the stretch marks noticeably reducing after the first 2-3 treatments. With a course of treatments, these results will be cumulative. Once the course is completed, final results will be most apparent after 6-8 weeks.

Absolutely! Radio Frequency treatments such as the Body Sculpting and Skin Tightening Treatment, or non-srigcal facelift, are extremely effective at rejuvenating loose skin after significant weight loss. In severe cases, more than one course may be required to achieve the desired results, but this is something we can discuss with you during the free consultation.

In short, the answer is a resounding YES!

The Cryogenic Lipolysis process selectively cools the cells of the adipose layer. A process known as “Popsicle Panniculitis”. This is a dermatologic condition where exposure to low temperatures can selectively damage subcutaneous fat while leaving skin intact. This process is also known as "Apoptosis". Based on the premise that fat cells are more easily damaged by cooling than skin cells, cryogenic lipolysis was developed applying low temperatures to tissue via thermal conduction. In order to avoid frostbite, a specific temperature level and exposure is determined and transmission is ensured through the use of an anti-freeze membrane, further protecting the surface tissues.

Physicians at The Wellman Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, part of the Harvard Medical School, originated and conducted clinical trials to prove the efficacy of the process. Fatty tissue that is cooled below body temperature but above freezing undergoes localized cell death followed by a local inflammatory response, a local panniculitis, which gradually, over the course of several months, results in a reduction of the fatty tissue layer.

Through the adoption of our unique treatment protocols, clients can achieve an astonishing 26-40% reduction in the fat layer within 8-12 weeks following treatment.

Our competitors can only wish their treatments were comparable!

However, the new 4D-Cryo applies the new Thermal Shock approach with advanced temperature feedback control, combined with EMS, specially formulated anti-freeze membranes and thoroughly researched and proven treatment protocols to deliver the <strong>best fat freezing inch loss results</strong> possible, whilst also ensuring complete comfort and safety for the client.

We are aware of people offering similar treatments to ours, sometimes at lower prices. At Sussex Laser Lipo we strive to ensure we are offering the best value for you, the customer, whilst ensuring we provide clean, comfortable and professional facilities. We have often found that providers offering very cheap prices are cutting corners in some way (e.g. shorter treatment times, only accept cash payment, are not fully qualified and insured, etc.). Sussex Laser Lipo simply do not cut corners with our clients’ safety, nor will we compromise in delivering the best results possible. Our one and only priority is you, the customer!vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

Both 4D-Cryo and our unique Accelerated Laser Lipo Inch Loss Treatments deliver outstanding inch loss and body contouring capabilities, so how do you choose which would work best for you?

Laser Lipo is based on the use of Laser light energy to stimulate the inch loss process. This has the following benefits compared to Cryogenic Lipolysis :-

  • Delivers immediate inch loss results
  • Treats a larger area during a course
  • Promotes skin tightening

4D-Cryo Thermal Shock and EMS (also known as "Fat Freezing"), leverages the principle of "popsicle apoptosis" to cause the death of fat cells with a single treatment. This has the following benefits compared to Laser Lipo :-

  • No exercise required after treatment
  • Can treat directly over tattoos without the risk of fading the tattoo
  • Once in remission for more than 2 years, Cancer is no longer a contra-indication for Cryogenic Lipolysis

Therefore, the decision is primarily determined by your personal situation, goals and preferences. Ask yourself the following questions and then look below for the best fit for you :-

  1. Do you have tattoos, especially in the area you would like to have treated?
  2. Are you unable or unwilling to exercise?
  3. Have you suffered from cancer? If so, have you been in remission for more than 2 years?
  4. Are you prepared to wait 8-12 weeks for the full inch loss results to be achieved naturally (without the need to exercise)? (NOTE :- Most clients see some visible results within 4-6 weeks)

If your answers were mostly "Yes", our 4D-Cryo Fat Freezing and EMS Inch Loss Treatments would be well suited to you.

If your answers were mostly "No", our Accelerated Laser Lipo or 4D-Cavi Inch Loss Treatments are more likely to meet your needs.

If you are still unsure, please contact us to discuss your options, or book in for a free consultation.
