"There appeared to be hardly any cellulite at all. I honestly thought I was stuck with my cellulite for life, but my skin is much firmer and the dimples are obviously reduced."

Science-based skin tightening & cellulite reduction
Prevent ~ Maintain ~ Reduce
To offer you the absolutely best advice, treatment and skin products we read all the new science papers regarding cellulite, fat tissue, connective tissue, anti-ageing and skin tightening every single day. We assess all new quality equipment that comes to market (there is no point trying cheap chinese machines). We test all new natural actives relative to skin tightening and cellulite removal. And we share some of this knowledge via our blog.
All our treatments are based on physics and biology, not beauty therapy myths, and are offered by a specialist with 17-year experience, not a machine operator. Our Meso-CRF® treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive, pain-free, bruise-free, comfortable, super-safe (99.8% safe, to be precise) and require zero downtime (you can go straight to work or play immediately after our treatments). During the last 17 years we have treated more than 2,700 clients and have provided more than 17,000 cellulite and skin tightening procedures.
Our before & after pictures are 100% Photoshop-free and our Celluence® cream testimonies are 100% genuine. Our treatments, creams and expert advice are regularly featured in most major national magazines, newspapers and TV, including the Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, OK, Grazia, The Times, Telegraph, Express, Daily Mirror, The Sun, She, Top Sante and BBC, among many others.
THE THREE best ANTI-CELLULITE / skin tightening TECHNOLOGIES, COMBINED
Monopolar radiofrequency ~ Ultrasound cavitation ~ Injection-free mesotherapy with concentrated actives
Due to our artificial lifestyle (drinking, smoking, contraceptive pill, unhealthy diet, sedentary occupation, lack of vigorous movement/exercise), most women today suffer from skin looseness and cellulite. A change in lifestyle will improve the health and appearance of the thighs and butt area, but on its own it is usually not very fast acting and not very effective, either on cellulite or on skin firmness. For those two, a very strong anti-cellulite / skin tightening treatment is needed.
Most cellulite / skin tightening / bum lifting treatments also do not work, simply because they are either too light (not powerful enough), too irrelevant (they don't even affect the deep skin tissues, focusing instead on the epidermis) or not comprehensive enough to act powerfully on all aspects of cellulite and skin looseness. Most cellulite creams do not work either because they are simply not concentrated and comprehensive enough.
Meso-CRF® is different. It specifically focuses on the dermis and hypodermis (where the large collagen structures and cellulite fat is located), it is strong, yet safe, and it combines the three most effective anti-cellulite / skin tightening / lifting technologies with the most important anti-cellulite natural active ingredients. Together, all these act on all seven aspects of cellulite: superficial fat accumulation, skin looseness, water retention / poor circulation, fibrosis, oxidative damage, inflammation and glycation.
Our niche is cellulite and we constantly follow all the technological developments and research new natural actives. As soon as an effective new technology or active comes up, we aim to immediately incorporate it into our treatments. To the best of our knowledge, there is currently no more effective anti-cellulite technology or active ingredient, other than the ones used for the Meso-CRF® treatments. And this is why we use those specific technologies and actives.
The most amazing anti-cellulite actives, combined
ALL the important skin tightening and cellulite natural actives, highly concentrated
We are the only clinic in the world to use multiple, high purity botanical actives at high concentrations for our treatments, comprising 100% pure curcumin/turmeric extract, EGCG/green tea extract, cocoa polyphenols, resveratrol, gotu kola/centella asiatica extract, forskolin, caffeine, escin among several other natural actives (most clinics and salons would not use a treatment cream/gel with such VERY expensive actives, even if it was commercially available).
Curcumin, specifically, is well researched for its anti-inflammatory, lipolytic, antifibrotic and antioxidant action, making it an ideal ingredient in the fight against cellulite. EGCG from green tea, resveratrol from berries and grape skin, gotu kola and all other compounds used, possess similar actions and have maximum impact against cellulite and skin looseness when combined with radiofrequency and ultrasound. And the results speak for themselves!
MESO-CRF® SIMULTANEOUSLY COMBINES:
High power, cooled, resistive, monopolar radiofrequency.
This is the strongest technology known today for cellulite reduction, skin tightening, non-surgical butt lifting and "thigh gap" treatment. This is the only type of radiofrequency treatment that focuses with accuracy on the dermis and hypodermis, deep inside the skin (in contrast to bipolar, non-cooled, unipolar or capacitive radiofrequency which are all very superficial and therefore a waste of money). This type of radiofrequency technology is by far the most effective and most suitable to skin tightening / bum lifting (only second to surgery) and cellulite (cellulite surgery is a disaster, leaving you with either flabby skin (subcision cellulite surgery) or scar tissue and more bumps than before (laser cellulite surgery). In addition, we combine this unique technology with our exclusive treatment protocols based on Physics for maximum results with zero pain and zero downtime (you can go straight to work, gym or social life after treatment).
High power, low frequency ultrasound cavitation
This is the most suitable and highest power ultrasound treatment for cellulite and complements the effects of radiofrequency
Injection-free mesotherapy with turmeric, green tea, cocoa and resveratrol extracts
Contrary to popular belief, skin formulations do get absorbed by the skin, and technologies such as injection-free mesotherapy boost the absorption of actives contained in such creams by 500% or more. Our injection-free mesotherapy is based on the best skin firming and anti-cellulite natural active ingredients, including curcumin/turmeric extract, EGCG/green tea extract, cocoa polyphenols, resveratrol, centella asiatica, forskolin, caffeine, escin and several others.
Celluence® Phase One + Phase Two creams
Contrary to the urban myth, highly concentrated cellulite creams do work - cellulite creams that don't work are simply not concentrated enough and/or do not contain the right actives. The Celluence® creams are an important aspect of the treatment and help in ways that no cellulite treatment of any kind can, by working on glycation, oxidative damage, fibrosis and inflammation and by complementing the action of the treatment on skin firmness, circulation and fat reduction. The Celluence® creams are the most comprehensive and concentrated anti-cellulite creams available today, featuring 40x natural anti-cellulite active ingredients. The Celluence® creams are used at home, twice a day, either on their own or in combination with the Meso-CRF® Cellulite treatment, for maximum results.
What does treatment involve?
Expert assessment and consultation
Your introductory session first starts with an assessment of your aesthetic problem: body skin looseness, cellulite or stubborn topical fat. After the assessment, your therapist will discuss and explain the causes of that aesthetic concern and answer all your questions in simple terms but with science-backed answers (no "toxin" talk, "melted fat that is removed by urine", "drinks loads of water" and the like).
Then your therapist will suggest a treatment plan, according to your specific needs. This is followed by a brief explanation of how the treatment works and also how it feels. After your assessment and consultation, you will receive your first Meso-CRF® Body | Turmeric treatment. Our Meso-CRF® sessions involve treatment with the machine for 40' (one area) or 80' (two areas).
How treatment feels
For the treatment you simply lie down on the treatment table and after your therapist sets the treatment settings on the equipment, they will apply a concentrated treatment cream-gel on the area to be treated. Unlike any other treatment cream/gel, the treatment cream-gels used for Meso-CRF® Body | Turmeric contain high concentrations of multiple actives, for maximum results.
Your therapist will then glide the equipment applicator with slow circular movements and in a few seconds you will start feeling heat developing in the area treated. However, the surface of your skin will not become red and it will not feel very hot to the touch. This is the result of our Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ technology which accurately focuses on the deep collagen fibres and deep fat, as opposed to the epidermis, that most other RF treatments affect. So, although your fat and collagen tissues under your skin will become very hot (in order to release cellulite down fat and stimulate skin tightening), your skin will remain at a much cooler temperature, with no redness, pain or other drama. This is unlike most RF treatments on the market, which can be very painful.
Impressively strong, yet super-safe treatment
In fact, if you have previously tried other radiofrequency treatments, such as the usual Velashape or LipoFirm Pro/Plus, you will be impressed by how much stronger and yet how comfortable Meso-CRF® Body | Turmeric treatment is, in relation to other RF treatments. This is the result of our physics-based protocols and high-tech equipment which allow us to offer you this amazing combination of powerful yet pleasant treatment. In the rare case of discomfort, your experienced therapist will amend the treatment settings to ensure that you receive a comfortable, pain-free treatment (some women even doze off during treatment).
Impressive absorption of natural actives into your skin, for maximum results
After a few minutes you will also notice that more and more of our concentrated treatment cream-gel is applied and is absorbed by your skin. This is the result of the injection-free mesotherapy component of the treatment, which allows you to absorb 500% more cream-gel during Meso-CRF® treatment than if you applied the same cream-gel yourself at home.
Tighter skin in 45 minutes
By end of the treatment you will feel your skin buzzing and tingling with vitality and considerably tighter. Of course, long-term skin tightening and cellulite reduction takes several weeks to be reduced. However, even a single session will offer you an opportunity to feel of how powerful Meso-CRF® Body | Turmeric treatment is.
Inclusive nutrition and exercise advice
After the treatment you will have an opportunity to optionally book your follow-up sessions and ask any more questions you may have, regarding either the treatment itself or anything that comes to mind (nutrition, exercise, cellulite, skin firmness, fat, dieting etc.) will be answered accurately. So Meso-CRF® Body | Turmeric treatment includes unlimited free nutrition and exercise advice too.
No hard sales, no hype
However, please note that there is never pressure to book a course, or to book more sessions than you need and can afford. Thankfully we are super busy and do not have any need to hard-sell. Similarly, after treatment, and if you do not book any follow-up treatments, we will only send you two follow-up emails - so no spam from us either!
Frequently asked questions
Number of sessions / maintenance treatments
In most cases we recommend 6x-12x weekly or fortnightly sessions, depending on severity (even with the strongest treatment in the world you need repeated stimulation (treatments) and to allow some time for results to occur - we do not sell overnight miracle lies).
Maintenance treatments are recommended once a month or a course of 6x sessions once a year / every two years to maintain firmness and prevent cellulite. As with any medical / aesthetic treatment or product, results vary from person to person.
We do not do free consultations, because in many cases people do not show up, thereby wasting precious clinical time, which could be used for your treatment. However, you can buy a 30' expert consultation (£50) and if you buy a session afterwards, you will be refunded the cost of the consultation, after you attend your first session.
Introductory sessions include consultation and full treatment, so when you buy an introductory session you don't need to book or buy a consultation separately.

No hype, no fake Instagram photos, no fake 'Groupon pricing'
At LipoTherapeia we do not do mass-market "cellulite treatments" provided with cheap machines, diluted products and random protocols. We do not use a misleading initial price of £800, only to then offer 90% Groupon discounts at £80. Our pricing is simple and clear.
We do not sell you miracles or make exaggerated claims about "instant cellulite removal", "fat melting" and "permanent skin tightening" with just 1-3 sessions, as falsely advertised, sadly even by famous doctors, at many Harley Street clinics.
And we definitely do not post "before and after" pictures of C-list celebrities on Instagram with blatantly obvious Photoshop filters and shaded lighting, showing "amazing results in just one session", "non-surgical bum lift at your home" or "non-surgical liposuction", as is so fashionable lately. This is because we know that such results are biologically impossible (the body takes weeks and months to change - not minutes, hours or days).
Honesty, science-based advice, highest tech, boutique service
We always offer honest, science-based advice and the strongest SAFE skin tightening / cellulite treatments available today. At our practice you will receive quality treatment at modest prices - especially when considering our advanced technology, long experience and very expensive actives put in our treatment formulations. And you will be treated to a personal, boutique service, always provided by an expert. We are highly specialised, so your therapist does not do any Hollywood waxing, manicures, laser hair removal, eyelash tinting or tattoo removal - just cellulite and skin tightening.
Intensive non-surgical bum lift
What are the causes of soft, "droopy" buttocks?
Lack of exercise, especially of the gluteus maximus muscle, excess calorie intake, sitting down for long periods of time and normal ageing result in skin looseness, the accumulation of excess fat, cellulite, water retention on the buttock area, leading to an enlarged and saggy/droopy bottom with puffy, spongy skin.
Squats are great for butt muscles - but they do nothing for skin
Dieting and buttock liposuction remove the excess fat but further worsen the saggy, spongy, puffy look and feel. Hip extensions and other exercises that target the "gluteus maximus" muscle are very helpful, as they lift the butt area and fill the void left by weight loss, thereby improving the shape and tone under the skin. However, exercises do nothing to address the problem of looseness, puffiness and sponginess on the skin itself.
Butt lift surgery
Only surgical removal of skin, can offer better results than a good radiofrequency+mesotherapy treatment, and obviously this is not applicable on the buttock area, as it leads to shape distortion of the butt and very unsightly scars. Butt lift surgery is better reserved only for overweight / obese women with quite a lot of excess skin, and it is not relevant to slim, normal weight or even "curvy" women with butt skin looseness.
Brazilian butt lift: good for 2-3 years, then things start looking South...
The addition of fat in the butt area (the so called Brazilian butt lift) can improve the shape of the bum, but only temporarily: in 2-3 years the fat starts to accumulate sideways and "downwards" (fat is known to disintegrate the connective tissue around it), thereby causing the butt to become saggy, droopy and loose. Furthermore, the brazilian butt lift cannot do anything for cellulite. In fact, the extra stretching of the skin by the fat underneath it look worse.
Cooled, high-power, monopolar radiofrequency: the strongest butt tightening and lifting technology known today. Guaranteed.
Thankfully, technology can be used to tighten/lift the skin naturally, on non-overweight women, when surgery is not suitable. As mentioned above, it is widely established today that the only butt lifting treatment that works, barring surgery, is cooled, high intensity, resistive, monopolar radiofrequency (low power or bipolar radiofrequency treatments are just a waste of time). It is also widely accepted that highly concentrated extracts of centella asiatica, hydroxyproline and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) are some of the strongest skin firming natural actives available (low purity or low concentration actives don't work). Injection-free mesotherapy can help skin absorb those actives 500% more effectively. Meso-CRF® combines all these elements and is the strongest bum lifting technology available today, and together with some gluteus muscle exercises can work wonders for your bum. In addition to bum lifting / skin tightening, Meso-CRF® also works intensively on cellulite and even has a mild effect on stretch marks, so you get a combined benefit by the use of this technology. In most cases we recommend 6-12 sessions for best results.
Intensive Thigh gap treatment
What are the causes of skin looseness, fat accumulation and cellulite on the inner thighs?
Lack of exercise, especially of the adductor muscles of the inner thighs, excess calorie intake, sitting down for long periods of time and normal ageing result in the accumulation of excess fat, water retention, cellulite and skin looseness on the inner thigh area, leading to an enlarged and saggy/droopy bottom with puffy, spongy skin.
Adductor exercises at the gym are great for inner thigh muscles - but they do nothing for skin
Dieting and inner thigh liposuction remove the excess fat but further worsen the saggy, spongy, puffy look and feel. Adductor exercises at the machine, lunges and other exercises that target the "adductor muscles" muscle are very helpful, as they tighten the inner thigh musculature and fill the void left by weight loss, thereby improving the shape and tone under the skin. However, exercises do nothing to address the problem of looseness, puffiness and sponginess on the skin itself.
Thigh tuck / thigh lift surgery: only for the worst cases
The so-called thigh-tuck or thigh lift, i.e. the surgical lifting and tightening of the thigh area leaves the skin with quite unsightly scars which must be hidden behind large swimwear or underwear, which defies the purpose of having surgery. This is only reserved for overweight / obese women with quite a lot of excess skin, and it is not relevant to slim, normal weight or even "curvy" women with thigh skin looseness.
Cooled, high-power, monopolar radiofrequency: the strongest thigh tightening technology known today. Guaranteed.
Thankfully, technology can be used to tighten/lift the skin naturally, on non-obese women, when surgery is not suitable. As mentioned above, it is widely established today that the only thigh tightening treatment that works, barring surgery, is cooled, high intensity, resistive, monopolar radiofrequency (low power or bipolar radiofrequency treatments are just a waste of time). It is also widely accepted that highly concentrated extracts of centella asiatica, hydroxyproline and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) are the strongest skin firming natural actives available (low purity or low concentration actives are just ineffective). Injection-free mesotherapy can help skin absorb those actives 500% more effectively. Meso-CRF® combines all these elements and is the strongest "thigh gap" treatment available today, and together with some adductor muscle exercises can work wonders for your inner thighs. In addition to inner thigh lifting / skin tightening, Meso-CRF® also works intensively on cellulite, so you get a combined benefit by the use of this technology. In most cases we recommend 6-12 sessions for best results.
office workers | post-pregnancy | post-lipo | slim women | cellulite massage
Our Meso-CRF® treatments are ideal for all women with cellulite and skin looseness, including office workers who suffer from these problems due to long office work hours; women with cellulite and poor circulation due to constant travelling; after-pregnancy, which is a major cause of cellulite; after liposuction / tummy tuck / vaser / laser lipo, cellulaze / cellfina (liposuction and cellulite surgery leave skin saggy and with scar tissue lumps and bumps, necessitating corrective work with radiofrequency and ultrasound); models and slim women also do get cellulite, quite often from the age of 25, and our skin tightening / cellulite treatments are perfect for them; intensive cellulite massages for those who don't like technology based treatments.
