Caroline Weller from Life Magazines puts Lipofirm Pro to the test
Lisa Harris from Lisa Harris Skin Science tells me it does indeed work, and my ongoing battle with my over large flabby belly (that I like to blame on the menopause rather than overindulgence) makes me decide to give it a try.
I started with a body consultation with Lisa who explained what would happen over the next six weekly treatments. Lisa who has a new clinic in Knightsbridge as well as Weybridge, has almost 25 years in the world of beauty and is extremely informative. A few days later I arrive feeling optimistic at the Weybridge Clinic.
My first appointment would last about two hours and involve a Lipofirm Wrap and Non-invasive Cryolipolysis before moving on to my six weekly sessions of Lipofirm Pro Eleanor would be looking after me and after changing into some rather unflattering paper underwear I settle down for my treatment.
Lisa has already explained that it works by breaking down fat cells and aiding the body in transporting released Triglycerides through the body’s natural waste processes allowing the contents of the fat cell to be naturally eliminated from the body. Being bio active, Lipofirm WRAP™ is highly effective when used with technologies such as Cryolipolysis, or Radio Frequency.
The wrap solution needs to be activated by heat so I was wrapped up first with polythene, then a foil sheet and lastly a thick blanket. Eleanor then left me to have a rather relaxing power nap!
I’m told the Triglyceride in fat cells can be Cryolipolysis uses controlled & advanced cooling technologies to target stubborn pockets of fat selectively and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process.
The treatment wasn’t painful although my skin felt a little tender afterwards. Apparently it can take up to 2 months to see the full result however some clients begin to see results after 2 weeks.
Arriving at the clinic for my first Lipofirm Pro treatment my stomach definitely feels less bloated after my Wrap and Cryo session. After Eleanor applies gel to my stomach area the process begins using a machine which uses a radio frequency technology and dynamic muscle activation to break down and disperse fat and cellulite whilst also firming the skin.
The machine has an attachment that looks rather like a shower head and has metal roller balls which make contact with your skin, and then delivers pulses as it is constantly moved around the area being worked on.
A rather strange sensation, a bit like tiny hot rubber bands pinging onto the skin. I didn’t find it painful but it sometimes got a little hot. My treatment lasted about 40 minutes and after I got used to the sensation I found it quite relaxing. Lipofirm Pro works on a Triple Action Protocol; Release, Remove and reshape.

As the weeks went by I noticed my clothes were looser but I didn’t think I really looked any different. I think this is because the changes happen gradually.
However, when Eleanor presented me with the photos she had taken at the beginning of my treatment and those at the end, bearing in mind I had not altered my eating and drinking habits, or participated in any additional exercise during my course, the treatment has most definitely made a difference and I’m delighted! It has even spurred me on to exercise and eat more healthily and even cut down the glasses of wine.
