19 years of experience and specialisation in body/face skin tightening & cellulite

For the last 19 years we have specialised in providing advanced, intensive cellulite and skin tightening/lifting treatments (and nothing else) 1,000 times a year. So in the last two decades we have treated more than 2,900 clients and we have provided more than 19,000 cellulite and skin tightening (face & body) procedures.

That includes 9 years and 9,000 sessions of Radio Frequency, Ultrasound Cavitation and Electro Mesotherapy treatments, in which we specialise. This extensive experience offers you reassurance that you are “in good hands” and are “taken care of by the best”.

What we can do for you / Treatment menu

We can provide you with expert assessment, consultation and treatment for:

  • Cellulite removal on thighs, top of knees, bum, calves, stomach, waist and upper arms (plus some superficial fat reduction, although we do not offer fat removal treatments per se). This is by far the most advanced and intensive cellulite treatment in London.

  • Whole body skin tightening, from top to toes: calves, knee tops, thighs, bum, waist, stomach, back, upper arms, décolletage, neck, jawline and cheeks. Our treatment works equally well on the entire body and face, providing intensive skin tightening and overall anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation. Plus some stretch mark reduction (although we do not offer stretch mark treatments per se). Again, this is the strongest skin tightening treatment in London.

In the context of skin tightening/lifting and cellulite reduction, we offer the following specialised treatments:

  • Non-surgical bum lift, including cellulite removal. And in contrast to most places in London, we have no problem treating large sizes, as we use the strongest equipment available. Big buns? Not a problem!

  • Non-surgical jowl lift / face lift, focusing on lifting the under-chin, jowl/jawline, nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and cheeks, intensively and safely. Plus overall anti-ageing, skin pore tightening and some acne improvement (although we do not offer acne treatments per se)

  • Non-surgical décolletage lift: anti-ageing, skin tightening and lift (although we do not offer breast lift treatments per se)

  • Non-surgical inner thigh lift / “thigh gap” treatment, including cellulite removal

  • Non-surgical tummy lift, including cellulite removal (and in contrast to most places in London, we have no problem treating large sizes, as we use the strongest equipment available)

  • Post-lipo treatments for cellulite reduction, residual fat reduction and excess skin tightening: after liposuction, liposculpture, bum lift, brazilian bum lift (there is still cellulite there after a BBL), thigh lift (there is still cellulite there after a thigh lift), smart lipo / laser lipo, vaser lipo, body-tite, cellulaze, cellfina and cellulite subcision (unfortunately they don’t work as well as advertised)

We only do skin tightening and cellulite and frankly we have no intention in doing anything else. We don’t need to make millions or build an empire or a chain of Pizza Express-style beauty clinics. And besides, there are plenty of good people who do an excellent job with acne removal, chemical peels, hair removal, cleansing facials etc. Why be average in twenty areas when you can be the best in two: cellulite and skin tightening/lifting.

We stay focused and specialised in one area of expertise, so that you feel confident and reassured that you have treatment with the best.

Real before and after photos, honesty, no hype, no one-session imaginary “transformations”

No fake Instagram photos, fake reviews, miracle promises or “celeb” hype":

  • 95% of before and after photos on Instagram or websites are fake, even those that come from equipment manufacturers. This means that either the photos have been manipulated on Photoshop or that the lighting is different between the “before” and “after” photos

    • horrible vertical lighting, such as that found in store changing rooms, for the “before” pictures

    • pleasing full frontal lighting for the “after” pictures

  • Similar statistics apply to reviews, even the big review websites

  • Furthermore, many salons and clinics use celebrities and influencers to create hype with wild, unrealistic or unachievable claims about body “transformations” and miraculous results in 1-4 monthly treatments (impossible), non-surgical brazilian butt lifts (they don’t exist) or "non-surgical liposuction" (doesn’t work), taking advantage of the insecure, the naive and the gullible.

We do not do any of those. All our before & after photos are 100% photoshop-free and taken with identical lighting before and after (including the one above). And although we use the most advanced equipment and actives available, we do not make exaggerated promises, such as the ones above, because we know that such results are biologically impossible (the body takes repeated stimulation over time (weeks and months) to change - not one session and not minutes, hours or even days.

In addition, we never pressurise you to book a course or to book more sessions than you need or can afford. Thankfully we are super busy and do not have any need to resort to hard selling. Similarly, after your first 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.

We offer honest, realistic, hype-free, science-based advice and treatment. We respect you.

In the press

DM 750.jpg

Our work (both our treatments and our expert comments and entire articles) has been featured on the Daily Mail, Evening Standard, Daily Mirror, Daily Express, The Times, The Sun, Metro, Telegraph, Cosmopolitan, Grazia, She, OK, Top Sante, Women's Health, Health & Fitness and many more publications

  • Daily Mail: "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” / Body

  • Evening Standard: "While I only had one session, I saw immediate effects. My dry, dull British weather-beaten skin looked “glowing” as my friend told me. If I were to have the full six to 12 recommended sessions I'm sure my results would have been longer-lasting, but if you want to look fresh for a special event even one session does the job." / Face

  • Sunday Mirror: "Amazing, I haven't seen my body looking this smooth and toned in years!" / Body

  • Top Sante: "Of all the things I’ve tried over 13 years as a health, wellbeing and beauty journalist, this is one I’d do again" / Body

  • Woman's Own: "I wanted firmer skin but I couldn’t face needles, so I tried the Centella Asiatica facial treatment, as it’s often compared to Botox. Using radio frequency (so no pain), it drives high-performing ingredients to work at a deeper level, as well as improving the surface of the skin. And it works – after one session my skin is lovely and plump! Twelve sessions are recommended for results lasting 12-18 months." / Face

These are just some press quotes regarding our face and body treatments.

Our clinic in Chelsea / South Kensington, London

Our advanced face and body treatments are exclusively provided in one location, at the discreet and luxurious Chelsea Private Clinic in London - nowhere else. The full address is 151 Sydney Street (just off King’s Road, opposite the old Chelsea Town Hall), London, SW3 6NT, United Kingdom.

Our clients are both local and from all over London, the UK and abroad (we do 1-3 week intensive courses for people who live outside London). We treat everyone, from au-pairs to lawyers to billionaires, with politeness, honesty, professionalism and confidentiality.

We are looking forward to seeing you here and treating you like the VIP that you are - no matter what walk of life or part of the world you come from.

How many sessions? How often? What if I live outside London?

Your body does not change in minutes, hours or even days, it needs regular repeated stimulation to change. The expensive 1-4 monthly sessions only suit the salons and clinics - not you.

So, as we discussed above, we typically suggest 6-12 sessions, for both body (skin tightening, lifting and cellulite treatments) or face (skin tightening and lifting treatments). This depends on severity, on how fast your body responds and on how perfectionist you are (in extreme cases we do up to 24). But in most cases we suggest you start with 6 sessions, see the results and then, if needed, you will be motivated to have another 6. We do not promise one-session imaginary body “transformations”.

Treatments can be received twice a week, once a week or once in two weeks (if you are in London for only 1-3 weeks, we can do three times a week).

After your course of treatments is finished you can have top-up maintenance sessions once in 4-8 weeks - depending on how healthy or unhealthy your lifestyle is. Some women prefer to do top-up courses of 3 or 6 sessions once a year instead.

These suggestions are for your own benefit, so that you get the best outcome from your treatment.

What about comfort & safety?

Meso-CRF® treatment is NEVER painful. Some people find it relaxing, some find it a bit uncomfortable, but you never feel pain or burning, despite the strength of our treatment. We do things differently.

There is ZERO downtime - you can do literally anything you want (gym, run, swim, work, socialise - anything) and there is no bruising, burns or other evidence that you have had treatment (some residual redness typically goes away in 30-45 minutes).

Our safety record is 99.6% (in the other 0.4% of treatments clients have some temporary irritation).

Our cellulite and body/face skin tightening/lifting treatments are on-surgical, non-invasive. No lasers, no injections, no chemical peels, no fillers, no threads, no burns, no bruises, no downtime, no scar tissue, no "trout pout", no "poker face", no drama.

Our pricing structure

You may have seen those £350-750 per area, yet appallingly low-spec, treatments that are supposed to give results in 1-4 sessions. The misleading small number of sessions is specifically chosen to justify the exorbitant high price tag.

We don’t do that. With our expertise, upmarket location and hi-spec equipment we could also charge £750 per area, but then you could only afford 1-4 sessions, instead of the 6-12 required, even with the best treatment available. Not even billionaires would pay 12x£750=£9000, because they are not naive (but sadly many of them are naive enough to pay £3000 for four sessions to “get rid of their cellulite for good”)…

Besides, we would have to spend half the money you pay us on PR, celeb freebies (celebs never pay for things they promote), influencers, sponsored posts, social media marketing and online advertising - which would mean that half your money would go towards our marketing and half towards your results. Not very smart.

At the moment we spend £0 for marketing and for the last few years we have been more or less fully booked. It seems to work ;) As a result, our super realistic prices are as follows.


  • Individually paid sessions: £190

  • 3x prepaid sessions: £180 per session, £540 in total (ideal for one-week London visitors)

  • 6x prepaid sessions: £160 per session, £960 in total [MOST POPULAR]

  • 12x prepaid sessions: £150 per session, £1800 in total (also popular for 6x double sessions)

  • 24x prepaid sessions: £150 per session, £3600 in total (usually bought 12x double sessions)

  • 36x prepaid sessions: £150 per session, £5400 in total (usually bought for 12x triple sessions)

These prices are per area, as defined below. If you wish to combine two or three of these areas, just book a double or triple session.

One area is defined as:

  • Outer thighs/saddlebags, back of thighs & bum lift [MOST POPULAR]

  • Inner thighs/thigh gap, knees & front of thighs

  • Waist/love handles & back

  • Upper arms

  • Calves/lower legs

  • Non-surgical stomach lift - SUPER INTENSIVE

  • Non-surgical bum lift - SUPER INTENSIVE [VERY POPULAR]

  • Non-surgical thigh gap lift - SUPER INTENSIVE

  • Non-surgical face lift/jowl lift: under-chin, jowl/jawline, nasolabial folds/laugh lines, cheeks - SUPER INTENSIVE [VERY POPULAR]

  • Non-surgical décolletage lift - SUPER INTENSIVE

Although we use the highest specification equipment, the most advanced treatment protocols based on science, and the purest and most expensive natural actives in the world, we charge a realistic price of £150-£190 per area, to allow you to have the required 6-12 sessions per area for best results. One cannot be more honest and more customer-centred than that.

> Science-based expertise in radiofrequency

Meso-CRF® is based on Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ + Ultrasound Cavitation + Electro Mesotherapy with multiple, highly concentrated anti-cellulite and skin tightening natural active ingredients.

Monopolar radiofrequency is universally accepted as the most effective technology for body and facial skin tightening and cellulite and we use high-power, cooled, monopolar radiofrequency (what we call Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™).

This is the only type of RF treatment that bypasses the epidermis and focuses with accuracy on the dermis, hypodermis, dermal/hypodermal junction and upper subcutaneous tissue, i.e. deep inside the skin where adipocytes (fat cells), fibroblasts (collagen cells) and the large collagen and fat structures are found (and where cellulite, skin laxity and stretch marks occur). On the face those skin layers are collectively called the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system).

Although not targeted specifically, the epidermis is also inadvertently treated, which leads to fresher, healthier looking skin with tighter pores and less acne (although we do not claim acne reduction). However, the most important results come from treating the deeper tissues described above.

Unfortunately, most radiofrequency treatments are of too low power or too superficial (or both), and thereby either ineffective, unsafe or both.

  • Low power means that, as a therapist, you will never be able to provide enough treatment to produce real results to your client, even if you perform a two-hour session.

  • And superficial RF (such as bipolar or so called tripolar/tetrapolar/octipolar radiofrequency) means that to treat the deeper tissues effectively you must first "burn" the epidermis. If you do not wish to damage the epidermis, you just offer a lighter treatment to your client. This means that the deeper tissues do not get treated adequately, which leads to poor results. On the other hand, if you take chances and offer an extreme treatment to the epidermis, in order to adequately treat the deeper tissues laying behind, then you will inevitably cause pain, burns and all sorts of drama.

  • Another option is to provide extreme heat deep in the tissues and literally burn them (euphemistically called “coagulation”, it is a burn to you and me) with the hope that the body will repair the damage with plenty of scar tissue, which is also "euphemistically called “skin tightening” (it is hardened scar tissue, to you and me). At LipoTherapeia we do not need to offer this extreme heat with scar tissue-causing/painful RF neither do we offer high-intensity focused ultrasound/HIFU based on the same principle.

Our Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ technology is different. It is the outcome of our intensive work and nine year experience in the Physics of radiofrequency. The result is maximum intensity (300+ Watts on the body, 120+ Watts on the face), non-invasive treatment with maximum comfort, zero pain, zero downtime, no injections and no nasty lasers. You can go straight to work, gym or social life right after treatment.

All in all, we offer the most effective skin tightening technology (universally acknowledged to be monopolar radiofrequency), without all the drama.

> The most amazing natural actives, exclusively at LipoTherapeia

Almost all radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments on the market today are applied with an "empty" cream, gel or oil, i.e. one that contains 0% active ingredients. The few treatment mediums that contain some actives, typically do not contain more than 0.5% pure actives.

In contrast, Meso-CRF® is applied via a treatment cream-gel with multiple, 100% purity, high concentration, natural actives: centella asiatica, forskolin, curcumin/turmeric extract, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and liposomal caffeine, among others.

These actives are specifically chosen for Meso-CRF® 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 a natural way.

We have researched and tested more than 160 anti-cellulite and skin tightening actives and we use only the best from the most respected manufacturers in the world, some costing up to £4000/kg, so again you are guaranteed to receive nothing but the highest quality.

Due to misinformation on the web, most people believe that creams do not get absorbed or that they do not "work". That may apply to the usual commercial creams with 0.1-1% actives, applied at home. However, an optimised treatment gel with 10% actives - and absorbed 500% more effectively during a radiofrequency/ultrasound treatment - is a totally different matter altogether. In fact, in our experience, these natural actives make our radiofrequency/ultrasound treatment much more effective.

Meso-CRF® is the result of years of constant development, innovation and extremely hard work, to offer our clients a quality treatment, based on high technology and the best actives. We do go the extra mile for you.

[Salons and clinics: unfortunately we do not sell our treatment cream-gels, as due to the high concentration of actives the cost is about £30/body area, wholesale price, so it is not viable to sell these products commercially for the very few clinics that would add this cost to their treatments]

< Back

> Not available anywhere else in London / What we don’t do

You cannot find the Meso-CRF® procedures anywhere else in London, simply because our equipment was exclusively adapted for us by a leading European manufacturer, to our exacting, high-performance specifications, for the strongest and safest radiofrequency and ultrasound available: 300 Watts of monopolar, cooled, high-intensity RF and 100 Watts of low-frequency ultrasound cavitation, i.e. the best technologies for cellulite.

There are plenty of other treatments for cellulite and skin tightening and the technologies we have assessed include, among others, Thermage, Vanquish, Eximia, Viora Reaction, Pelleve, Ultrashape, Liposonix, LipoFreeze, Zeltiq Coolsculpting, Venus Freeze & Legacy, Med-Contour, Ulthera (Ultherapy), 3D Lipo, CACI, LipoFirm Pro, Tripolar, Cavislim, Cellulaze, Cellfina, Cellutite, UltraFormer, Unison, Exilis, Onda, Emsculpt, Sculpsure, acoustic wave therapy (aka AWT, pressure waves, lipotripsy and shockwaves), LPG/Endermologie, Endospheres and G5. We do NOT offer and would NOT like to offer any of the above technologies. And of course we are not interested in the dozens of irrelevant to skin tightening (superficially acting) IPL/laser/LED machines, chemical peels, microdermabrasion etc...

We also use exclusive, very expensive treatment gel/creams with the highest concentration/highest purity natural actives.

There are no similar cream-gels on the market, worldwide, simply because not a single company in the world goes into the expense of manufacturing/using such expensive treatment cream-gels (£30/session, wholesale price) for their clients. All that exist in the market are empty or almost empty/extremely diluted, serums/creams/gels. In fact, for most treatments plain oil, baby oil or vaseline is used...

Please feel free to research other clinics on the internet and compare them to our:

  • equipment specifications

  • treatment gels used

  • experience, knowledge, science-based advice

  • very moderate prices (suitable for courses of 6x or 12x sessions, not expensive 1-4 session miracle hypes)

  • client reviews

  • press reviews, expert press articles and interviews

  • real before/after pictures

  • and the highly specialised information that we have to offer on our website

However, the best way to directly compare it with any other treatment available anywhere in London, is to physically have a Meso-CRF® treatment and feel, see and touch the difference for yourself.
