Crunch-Time – Does Lipo-Sculpting really work?

Can you believe how quickly the last four weeks have gone? It seems like yesterday I was writing to tell you about being offered a revolutionary inch-loss treatment at Bellaze in Belfast, and suddenly my four weeks of treatments are up and I am being measured up for that all important inch count.

When the treatment first began, I was having the Lipo-Sculpting Laser work and lay thinking to myself, wow! This is easy! I don’t feel anything and I can expect to lose lots of inches. Well obviously that was only part of the treatment. Not that the other parts weren’t easy. Basically all you have to do is lie on a treatment bed and pick which channel you want to watch, the rest is done for you.

After the Lipo Laser comes the Electrolite and Thermoshape. These are done simultaneously. You have the electrodes placed on your muscles (in my case I was having them on my abdomen region), followed by the Thermoshape wrap. The only way I can think of to describe this is that it’s like having a really strong electric blanket wrapped around the area you are having the treatment on. This in itself was so relaxing. I am a little bit of a heat-junkie, I find it so comforting.

In my first session, I must say I felt like a bit of a wuss. The Electrolite system goes up to level 8 and I managed to get to about 1.5 – See! Told you I was a wuss!  I am happy to say that you definitely build up muscle strength and the ability to go to higher levels each time you go. I think I managed to get to number 6 or 7 by the end. I may have only got to number 7 for 5 seconds, but hey! I still did it.

In all seriousness though, the treatment has had an even more positive effect for me than just the inch-loss. Due to numerous open surgeries on my abdomen, I had lost all muscle tone in my tummy area. I have been attending physio for a couple of months trying to build up core strength in my abdomen to lessen the sciatic pain I have been experiencing caused by over compensation of my back muscles. Even after two treatments (one week), I attended my physiotherapist and she was able to feel a very noticeable improvement in the muscle tone in my abdomen. In fact, my sciatic pain has reduced from being an ‘every-minute-of-every-day’ type of pain to an ‘occasional-pain-when-I’m-bold-and-do-too-much’ type of pain. It has had a remarkably positive effect on my sciatica, which for me is a wonderful result in itself.

I was noticing changes the whole way through my 4-week treatment. I have received a lot of comments about how flat my stomach and waist is looking. I would like to add for the record that I have been healthy eating for months now, so although this may work if you continue with a so-so diet, you are best looking at your eating plan to get the best possible outcome.

Over the 4-week treatment plan, I am VERY pleased to say that I have lost a huge 11-Inches in total!

My specific loss was in the following areas:

  • Hips – 5 Inch Loss
  • Waist – 4 Inch Loss
  • Diaphragm – 2 Inch Loss

This is not to be confused with mud wraps etc which draw out the water from your body to make you appear thinner, I have genuinely moved in 4 notches in my belt in 4 weeks.

The staff at Bellaze are really professional and friendly – They make the treatments so personal and I really did look forward to going. I was so sad when I realised that today was my last session.  The clinic itself is extremely clean, hygienic and has a very welcoming feel. There is always ample on-street parking every time I was there.

So whether you have a wedding coming up, have trouble shifting inches off stubborn problem areas or need to fit into that little black dress for an occasion, Bellaze’s Inch-Loss system is guaranteed to help you drop down the sizes. They even have special Bridal and Beach Body packages available.

It was a total pleasure having my treatments at Bellaze and I would definitely consider using them again should my belt notches ever start expanding again. I will write again in another 4 weeks to let you know if the inches have stayed away for good.

Laser Lipo – Does it really work? Join me on my 4-Week Journey with Bellaze Inch-Loss Clinic and we can find out together.

I recently received an invite to a brand new, non-invasive inch loss clinic – the first of its kind in Northern Ireland – which has arrived in Belfast with ambitions to give the city a leaner, more svelte silhouette. Bellaze, situated on Donegall Street in the city centre, uses the renowned Body Sculpting system from inch loss expert Tina O’Doherty’s clinics in Scotland. Since opening her first clinic in Scotland ten years ago, a total of over 500,000 treatments have been completed on over 40,000 clients, with each losing an average number of 8-12 inches.

So needless to say, I was offered the chance to try out their Body Sculpting System, I jumped at the chance. I had a trial today and really loved it, but when I was told that they are treating me to the 4-week Gold Plan, I was absolutely delighted!

The Bellaze Body Sculpting System uses 3 main methods:

Lipo Sculpting – A laser beam is targeted on the area of the body identified to be treated.  The cold laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events take place. Firstly pores form on the cells and this causes the water, Glycerol and Fatty Acids contained within the cells to spill out.

This is then removed from your body through the lymphatic system and processed in the same way as fatty foods are digested. The remaining fat cells are significantly reduced in size. This process does not affect any other part of your body such as skin, blood vessels or nerves.

Electrolite – Used originally for healing of muscles and surrounding tissues, it became apparent that the visual effect of this treatment was the improvement of the body contours. It was also noted that this was happening quickly and comfortably to the patient.
The equipment has since been modified enabling therapists to use it in the Beauty industry. It has replaced the original muscle stimulation treatments (commonly known as Faradic) that although were effective, took longer to achieve goals and were limited in use. However, there is Microcurrent equipment that incorporates Faradic type current. This is the choice of each individual manufacturer.

Microcurrent offers quick results in lifting and contouring. Cellulite conditions will improve as the cells become healthier and waste products are eliminated. After a course of treatments, (normally recommended are courses of 10 or 12 treatments), a maintenance programme will be followed to carry on the effects achieved.

Thermoshape – This treatment is carried out at the same time as the Electrolite treatment and uses relaxing therapeutic heat. Heating the muscles produces an increased blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.

My 4-week treatment plan starts on Tuesday 1st April, I am going to share my journey over the month with you to let you know the answer to the all important question you are asking, does it actually work? Follow me over the next 4 weeks to find out.
