What is 3D Lipo and Does it Work?

3D Lipo is a non-surgical, non invasive and pain free inch loss treatment which gives instant results!
With 3D Lipo we can target specific problem areas with tailor made bespoke treatment plans for the results you want.
We can target fat removal, skin tightening and cellulite to contour the body and help you achieve body confidence.

Is 3D Lipo Right for Me?

With four types of treatment targeting different concerns 3D Lipo is the perfect option if your objective is to reduce inches or improve cellulite from suborn areas be it tummy bulges, bat wings, double chins or any area that no amount of working out will get rid of – perfect pre summer or ahead of a big event!

Now you know what you want to achieve – which treatment/s will give you the results?

Cavitation- Melts fat to reduce inches and overall circumference
Cryolipolysis - Freezes fat in specific targeted problem areas for fat reduction
Radio Frequency - Skin tightening for face and body
3D Dermology - Targets cellulite through lymphatic drainage

What Should I Expect?

Your initial consultation will involve our 3D Lipo experts understanding your area/s of concern and building a bespoke treatment package to achieve your desired results.
The time it will take for you to see results will depend on your maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Results can be seen after the first treatment, however a course of 6-8 treatments is recommended for optimum results

Cryolipolysis, is a little different, again the results are permanent as long as your weight stays the same and a healthy balanced lifestyle is maintained however due to a slower process results will show anywhere from 2 months-6 months post treatment.

If you would like more information on 3D Lipo take a look at our treatment pages.

Want a ‘quick fix’ to lose inches?

We guarantee you a 6” loss in 2 hours
.......or your money back!

How?

With a Universal Contour Wrap - available at Beauty Matters for only £75.00

FACT - This is not a water loss treatment and does not rely on dehydration to get results. In fact, to maximise results we recommend you drink water regularly after your treatment to enhance the detoxification process.

How does the body wrap work?

The secret is the unique blend of mineral rich clay and the specialist body wrapping technique that cleanses your body & draws out toxins whilst compressing the soft fatty tissues to create your instant inch loss and sculpting effect.

What to expect?

Warm bandages soaked in the clay blend are applied by our specially trained therapists; you the just lay back and relax for a whole hour – Bliss!

Who can have this treatment?

Anyone can benefit from this inch loss treatment, regardless of size or shape, so whether you’re looking to kick-start a slimming plan or tackle stubborn inches it’s perfect!

We recommend

The night before your treatment you treat yourself to a full body salt scrub exfoliation; this will remove any dead skin cells. It will further enhance the treatment results and allow the clays to nourish your skin as well as detoxify, leaving your skin looking and feeling fabulous.

After Your Treatment

The Universal Contour Wrap continues to work long after you’ve left the salon. The unique clay blend remains on your skin so that the detoxification and tightening process may continue for three to four days giving further inch loss. After the wrap you should drink plenty of water to rid your body of impurities that have been released during the treatment.

To experience the best results a course of 3 wraps is recommended and these should be taken a minimum of 7-10 days apart, however the 6” loss guarantee is per treatment!

So what are you waiting for?

What’s on our nails??

A good manicure is truly a girl’s best accessory!

With so many options to choose from such as hard gels (Bio Sculpture, Gellux), hybrid gels (CND Shellac, Jessica Geleration Harmony Gelish,) and Acrylic (CND liquid and powder, Backscratchers Acrylic dip system) how much do we really know about the products being used and removed from our nails?

Each nail treatment is applied differently, for example; most hybrid gels are base, colour and top coat applied like normal polish curing each coat under a UV lamp. Most hard gels are applied much thicker using the gel to build hiding imperfections and giving strength with acrylics being self curing.

 

It’s not uncommon for different product types and brands to be layered together and between each other therefore in some cases leaving difficult to know what we actually have on our nails and how to remove them safely.

CND (Creative Nail Design) patented the ‘Shellac’ formula which hypoallergenic and fully tested along with leading brands to ensure the safety of the product.

Each nail product contains various quantities of different chemicals therefore to ensure the safeguarding of clients and therapists salons should ensure they have the correct knowledge of the products applied and which products can be used in conjunction to avoid any reactions or damage to the nail plate and surrounding areas.

Recently like many other cosmetics, nail products are being created on the black market and are readily available to anyone online?

What do we know about these products? Have they been through any safety testing? How will they react to the nail plate and surrounding areas? How do we remove these products safely? What condition will the nail plate be in under the product once removed? – None of these we can answer!

A documentary by BBCs Fake Britain covered this recently to really find out what the damages are caused by fake CND Shellac, unfortunately we were unable to get this footage however there are various articles on line reiterating the same information.

Here is just one example........

An article from the Mail Online explored the damages caused to the nail plate by using fake products http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2909292/How-safe-manicure-budget-nail-salons-using-substance-strong-s-BANNED-US.html

With the safeguarding our clients and therapists in mind Beauty Matters are now only removing nails that have been applied in our salons, this way we can be sure we know the brand/s and authenticity of product on the nails to ensure the correct maintenance and safe removal.

Today’s Generation of Skin Peels

Skin Peels are becoming one of the most frequently requested services in salons and skin centres.

This is due to this form of exfoliation offering quick visual results yet still accessible and affordable.

skin peel

A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone.

An acid is applied to the skin to lower the PH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, including exfoliation and stimulates new cell growth.

This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother more radiant complexion.

Skin Peels or Chemical Peels as they are also referred to, work to:

  • Reduce pigmentation
  • Reduce Rosacea
  • Reduce acne and scarring
  • Stimulate collagen
  • Even out skin tone
  • Rejuvenate, brighten & freshen your skin
  • Reduce fine lines
  • Create radiance to the skin

Many clients relate skin peels with one off treatments leading to excessive redness and skin “peeling” requiring down time and the need to hide away for weeks whilst the skin repairs itself and the redness subsides.

Today’s generation of Skin Peels couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, of course there are still some extreme skin peels available but with the majority of Skin Peels available today you are able to resume your normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.

After careful consideration Beauty Matters has chosen to introduce AlumierMD’s Chemical Peels into our salons.

AlumierMD Chemical Peel Philosophy

AlumierMD offers light and medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile.

With over 100 years of combined skincare experience, AlumierMD experts understand the philosophy behind different skin types and conditions to help achieve a youthful glow.

AlumierMD believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.

AlumierMD peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of the skin, forcing the body to quickly replenish it with new cells.

When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin.

To be sure the body doesn’t react to this exfoliation as it would to a trauma, which can lead to pigment changes; exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.

Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerating results and minimise complication. Post treatment products minimise complication, heal and sooth the skin and then maintain results

 

skin-peels-3Skin Conditions

Optimum Skin Health & Ageing

As we age our cell turnover slows down and our fibroblasts decrease production of collagen and elastin.

Retinol and peptides are essential to reverse the signs of ageing as they are the only two ingredients proven to stimulate fibroblasts. Every persons’ skin needs good skin care even if no pressing conditions are present.

A daily broad spectrum, antioxidant and gentle exfoliation will maintain a beautiful complexion and delay signs of ageing.

Rosacea

AlumierMDs’ hero ingredients when treating Rosacea are Hinokitiol, Sea Whip, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) .

Together they have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties which strengthen skin cells and capillaries as well as relieve redness and inflammation.

Acne

Treating acne is a multi-dimensional task.

Exfoliation must be enhanced to remove cell build up, sebum production must be controlled and propionibacterium acnes and inflammation must be reduced.

Pigmentation

Whether you are aiming to correct photo-damage, post inflammatory hyperpigmenation or hormone related melisma the melanocyte needs to be suppressed with Emblica™.

Exfoliation will remove pigmented skin cells and accelerate results.

 

AlumierMD Chemical Peel Expectations

skin-peels-2Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results.

A single peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take up to eight weeks.

Remember professional treatments enhance the results of homecare products, just as you take time out to exercise need to take time for your ‘daily skin care workout regime’ Before and after a course of AlumierMD skin peels.

AlumierMD treatments launch in Beauty Matters salons on 6th September 2017. Appointments available on this day with an AlumierMD expert – book now to call now to secure your consultation and say hello to beautiful clear skin!
