Based in the Chelsea Private Clinic you will find LipoTherapeia, the only aesthetic practice in London dedicated 100% to skin tightening and cellulite. Their exclusive Meso-CRF® Body procedure combines advanced skin tightening and cellulite technology, which uses the strongest SAFE radiofrequency available anywhere in London, with high purity natural active ingredients, from the most concentrated anti-cellulite cream-gel formulations anywhere in the world, to treat the thighs, butt, stomach and upper arms. In the last 18 years Georgios Tzenichristos has treated more than 2,800 clients and has have provided more than 18,000 cellulite and skin tightening procedures, that is a lot of lifted butts!
I headed along to see what the Meso-CRF® Body procedure was all about and to talk with the Founder of LipoTherapeia, Georgios Tzenichristos.
After an initial consultation and inspection of my cellulite Georgios asked me to lie face down on the treatment bed so he could start the procedure. Meso-CRF® Body is based on Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™, a special type of monopolar radiofrequency, ultrasound cavitation and multiple, highly concentrated anti-cellulite and skin tightening natural active ingredients. Monopolar radiofrequency is universally accepted as the most effective technology for skin tightening and cellulite, LipoTherapeia use a high-power, cooled, resistive, monopolar radiofrequency. How it works is that this is the only type of RF treatment that bypasses the epidermis and focuses with accuracy on the dermis, hypodermis and dermal/hypodermal junction, deep inside the skin where collagen cells, fat cells and the large collagen structures are found. LipoTherapeia’s Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ technology is the outcome of Georgios’s intensive work on, and experience in, the Physics of radiofrequency. The result is maximum intensity, non-invasive treatment with maximum comfort, zero pain and zero downtime with no injections and no nasty lasers. Perfect for those busy women on the go who want to look bikini ready without all the hassle of intensive surgery. The treatment is so gentle that you can go straight to work, gym or social life right after treatment, or in my case a date with my other half!
Georgios started the therapy by adding LipoTherapeia specialized treatment cream to my butt and thighs. The Meso-CRF® Body treatment cream-gel contains multiple, 100% purity, natural actives including: centella asiatica, EGCG/green tea extract, curcumin/turmeric extract, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, escin/horse chestnut extract, forskolin and caffeine, among others. These actives are specifically chosen for Meso-CRF® Body because they are the most widely researched natural anti-cellulite and skin tightening agents and known to nourish the skin from within and stimulate collagen/elastin synthesis, fat release, circulation and overall skin rejuvenation, in an effective and natural way. Georgios has researched and tested more than 160 anti-cellulite and skin tightening actives and has chosen to use only the best from the most respected manufacturers in the world. Optimised treatment gels with 10% actives are absorbed 500% more effectively during a radiofrequency/ultrasound treatment, which is why LipoTherapeia has spent so much time on researching the perfect treatment gel. The gel when first applied is cold but as Georgios applies the radiofrequency the sensation becomes one of warmth, and soon becomes one of heat making me glad the room is so cool! Georgios works in rhythmic motions over the butt and thighs and moves from side to side as it becomes to warm so the skin has a breather.
I experienced the Meso-CRF® Body Turmeric treatment, as turmeric has always been of fascination to me with its healing properties. Curcumin, Turmeric’s active ingredient, has been widely researched for decades, for its anti-inflammatory, lipolytic, antifibrotic, circulation-boosting and antioxidant action, making it an ideal ingredient in the fight against cellulite. All the other compounds used in this treatment possess similar actions and, together with cocoa flavanols, offer maximum impact against skin ageing and skin looseness when combined with radiofrequency. LipoTherapeia are the only clinic in London to use curcumin in their treatments for, so we have great expertise and use only use the purest concentration, absolute best quality curcumin. And if you are worried you will be bright yellow afterwards fear not, curcumin is colourless!
What I thought was good about LipoTherapeia is that they do not promise miracles, much like many of their counterparts. They never promise long-term results in one, two or even three sessions, as many clinics do, because we know that these are biologically impossible. Instead LipoTherapeia always offer science-based advice, safe, natural treatments and honestly insist on an average of 6-12 sessions, even with our advanced equipment and natural actives before seeing real results. I only had one session so saw that my skin was smoother and softer afterwards but Georgios was honest and said I would not see major results without a course of at least 6.
You cannot find the Meso-CRF® Body procedures anywhere else in London, simply because LipoTherapeia’s machine was exclusively adapted for them by a leading European manufacturer, to Georgios exacting, high-performance specifications, for the strongest and safest radiofrequency and ultrasound available: 350 Watts of monopolar, resistive, cooled, high-intensity RF and 75 Watts of low-frequency ultrasound cavitation; the best technologies for cellulite! So if you are looking for a more natural and honest way to tighten skin and reduce cellulite head to Georgios Tzenichristos of Lipotherapeia.
