Experts in skin tightening/anti-ageing & radiofrequency
To offer you the absolutely best advice, treatment and skin products we read all the new science papers regarding skin tightening, connective tissue and whole body - not just face - anti-ageing, every single day. We assess all new quality equipment that comes to market (there is no point trying cheap chinese machines). We test in the lab all new natural actives relative to skin tightening and anti-ageing. 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® facial treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive, pain-free, bruise-free, comfortable, super-safe (99.9% safe, to be precise) and require zero downtime (you can go straight to work or play immediately after our treatments).
Our treatments and advice are regularly featured in most major national magazines, newspapers and TV, including the Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, OK, Grazia, the Times, the Sun, the Telegraph, the Express, the Daily Mirror, The Sun and BBC, among many others.
During the last 17 years we have treated more than 2,700 clients and have provided more than 17,000 skin tightening and cellulite procedures.
Meso-CRF® Facial: INTENSIVE yet SAFE & natural
skin tightening, lifting & rejuvenation
Due to our artificial lifestyle (drinking, smoking, unhealthy diet, lack of sleep, sun damage, excess weight, even sitting down a lot), most people today suffer from skin ageing and skin laxity. A change in lifestyle will improve the health and appearance of the skin on the face, but on its own it is usually not very fast acting and not very effective, either on ageing or on firmness. For those two, a very strong anti-ageing / skin tightening treatment is needed. However, most skin tightening / anti-ageing / "lifting" treatments are problematic.
The aggressive and painful "permanent results with one session" treatments, such as Thermage, Ultherapy, Fraxel, chemical peels are based on literally damaging the skin and/or causing scar tissue, with the hope that the skin will regenerate itself. The results sometimes is just burns and scar tissue and not much else.
Injection-based mesotherapy leaves you bruised and does not do anything really to tighten the skin. Botox and fillers on the other hand, make the skin look artificial or - if overdone - deformed. And light facials, electrical muscle stimulation and low radiofrequency treatments with cheap Chinese machines are a sheer waste of time. Most anti-ageing creams do not work either because they are simply not concentrated and comprehensive enough.
Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea is different: it is effective, offering you both instant and long-term results, yet it is super-safe and natural. And results LOOK NATURAL too: no scar tissue/skin hardening (euphemistically called skin tightening), trout pout or expressionless look: you just look a younger, fresher looking version of yourself. Results are immediately visible, by you and people around you, who quite often may make unsolicited compliments: tighter /jowl area jawline, softer nasolabial folds, firmer under-eye area, diminished fine lines wrinkles, smaller pores, overall more lifted, firmer skin.
With repeated treatments, the immediate rejuvenation, skin lifting / tightening, anti-ageing effects become cumulative and long-lasting and skin looks fresher, younger and firmer, long-term. For long-lasting results a course of 6x sessions is recommended and to maintain the firmer, younger look achieved by the treatment, a course of 6x sessions every year is suggested. However, some women choose monthly top-ups to permanently maintain that beaming, youthful look. More aged skin will require 12x weekly sessions for impressive results.
With Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea we do not claim miracles, neither we claim 100% safety. But results are beautiful naturally and over the last 7 years we have never had a case of burning or other side effect. That's good to know!
HOW Meso-CRf® Facial | green tea WORKS
It is widely accepted today that high-power, cooled, monopolar radiofrequency, what we call Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™, is the most effective SAFE facial skin tightening and anti-ageing technology available. Injection-free mesotherapy is also widely recognised as one of the most effective technologies, but only if multiple, high quality actives are used in high concentrations.
By simultaneously combining these two technologies with the highest grade natural active ingredients, Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea provides immediate as well as long-lasting results safely and comfortably.
real, Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™
Unlike other treatments, our Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ works exactly where it counts, i.e. on the dermis, hypodermis and what is called SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). This is where the skin supporting collagen fibres are found, for an intensive anti-ageing, firming and lifting effect.
Deep collagen fibres tighten, leading to an immediate skin tightening / lifting / pore reduction. Circulation is significantly increased, leading to skin cell nourishment, rejuvenation and detoxification, which manifests as a fresher, more youthful looking face. With repeated treatments, collagen production is stimulated for a long-lasting improvement in skin firmness, elasticity and anti-ageing effect.
Although not targeted specifically, the epidermis is also inadvertently treated, which leads to fresher, healthier looking skin. However, the most important results come from treating the dermis, hypodermis and SMAS.
All in all, deep tissue radiofrequency offers a natural impressive result, where it counts.
Why is our radiofrequency different?
There are many varieties of radiofrequency, with most of them being either too superficial or of too low power.
Low power means that, as a therapist, you will never be able to provide enough treatment to produce real results, even if you offer a two-hour session.
And superficial RF (such as bipolar or unipolar radiofrequency) means that to treat the dermis, the hypodermis or the SMAS you must first "burn" the epidermis. If you do not wish to damage the epidermis, you just offer a lighter treatment to your client, which means the dermis/hypodermis/SMAS 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 dermis/hypodermis/SMAS laying behind, then you will unavoidably have pain, burns and all sorts of drama.
We are different: with our background in Physics and cosmetic formulation, our 7-year experience in radiofrequency, a good machine and an innovative treatment cream/gel, we found a way to offer deep treatment, high power and no complications. Our treatments are pain-free, super-safe (we never had a reaction on the face and there is only 0.1% chance of mild irritation on face treatments) and comfortable (some clients even doze off during treatment).
This is where we differ and this is why we do not need to offer extreme RF (e.g. Thermage), scar tissue causing and painful HIFU (e.g. Ulthera), mesotherapy injections with all the bruises that accompany them, horrible chemical peels which damage the epidermis and lead to sensitive skin or harsh ablative/resurfacing lasers, such as Fraxel. And of course we do not bother with the latest gimmicks, such as light masks, or the ineffective, old fashioned electrical muscle stimulation treatments.
We offer the most effective skin tightening technology (universally acknowledged to be monopolar radiofrequency), without all the drama.
Injection-free mesotherapy with EGCG green tea extract and ALL the important skin tightening and anti-ageing natural actives, combined
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-ageing natural active ingredients, including 100% pure EGCG/green tea extract, curcumin/turmeric extract, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, cocoa flavanols, resveratrol, gotu kola/centella asiatica, ascorbic acid/vitamin C and several others.
Compared to applying the same cream at home, Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea helps skin absorb 500% more of the nourishing actives.
Why EGCG / Green Tea?
EGCG green tea extract, specifically, is well researched for its skin repairing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action, making it an ideal ingredient in the fight against ageing and loose skin. All the other compounds used, possess similar actions and have maximum impact against skin ageing and skin looseness when combined with radiofrequency. And the results speak for themselves!
To the best of our knowledge, we are the only clinic in the world (literally) to use these multiple, high purity botanical actives at such high concentrations for our treatments.
What does treatment involve / How does it feel?
Expert assessment and consultation
Your introductory session first starts with an assessment of your aesthetic problem: facial skin looseness or signs of ageing. 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.
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® Facial | Green Tea treatment. Our Meso-CRF® sessions involve treatment with the machine for 40'.
How treatment feels
For 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 face.
Your therapist will then glide the equipment applicator with slow circular movements and in a few seconds you will start feeling heat developing on the skin. 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 collagen tissues under your skin will become very hot (in order to 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, you will be impressed by how much stronger and yet how much more comfortable Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea 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 it will look and feel considerably tighter, more lifted and fresher. Of course, long-term skin tightening takes several weeks to become apparent. However, even a single session will offer you an opportunity to feel of how powerful Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea treatment is.
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!
Ideal as a lunchtime procedure
As Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea is super safe and requires zero downtime (the only "downtime" is slightly pink face for 20-30 minutes) and provides instantly visible results, it is ideal as a lunchtime procedure or before an important social occasion or work event, when you want to look your best, naturally.
Frequently asked questions
Number of sessions / maintenance treatments
One session is great for impressive, instant results. However, in most cases we recommend 6-12x 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 skin firmness and combat ageing. 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.
Face areas treated
Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea is super-safe and super-powerful, and in one 45' session the whole face can be treated:
Under-eye bags / dark circles
Glabellar (frown) lines
Emphasis can be placed in any area you wish, including the under-eye area for under-eye bag / skin laxity / dark circle reduction.
All Meso-CRF® Facial | Green Tea treatments simultaneously treat skin ageing, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pores, tighten skin and are ideal for acne-prone skin
No hype, no fake Instagram photos, no fake 'Groupon pricing'
At LipoTherapeia we do not do mass-market facials 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 "premanent skin lifting" or "rolling back your age by 20 years" with just 1-3 sessions, as falsely advertised by some salons and 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, as is so fashionable lately. This is because we know that such results are biologically impossible.

We always offer honest, science-based advice and the strongest SAFE skin tightening 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.

We are highly specialised, so your therapist does not do any Hollywood waxing, manicures, laser hair removal, eyelash tinting or tattoo removal - just skin tightening, anti-ageing (and cellulite).
