Using new technology Med Shape, we can improve the appearance of cellulite, while smoothing and reshaping the body
Med Shape uses Infrared light with Bi-polar Radio Frequency to precisely target and heat fatty tissues in specific areas of the body while suction and massage rollers smooth and contour the skin.
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a new and promising technology for non-surgical body contouring, fat and cellulite reduction. Radiofrequency in combination with other modalities such as infrared, tissue mobilisation and suction is used in treatments to effectively contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat. For more information on Radiofrequency and its use look under additional information
With deep controlled heating of the fatty layers under the skin, the effects of tissue tightening and increased blood circulation mean that fatty deposits are drained through the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite. This leads to an improvement in their skin tone, with a reduction in the appearance of cellulite with minimal risks and downtime.
If diet and exercise have failed to reduce areas of unwanted fat, then non-invasive treatment may provide the help you are looking for. The treatment program is designed to improve body shape and reduce unwanted fat from areas such as face and neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, calves, ankles and male breasts.
One of the major benefits over surgical procedures is that your body generates its own collagen, during and after the treatment for many months to come.
This collagenesis tightens your skin and connective tissue, whilst increasing micro circulation and assisting with your lymphatic drainage.
How does Med Shape work?
Med Shape works in different ways to aid in breaking down fatty deposits and improving circulation. We all have that one stubborn area where exercise and diet alone won’t improve the appearance of cellulite or remove the excess weight around the stomach, love handles, inner thighs or upper arms. These areas of the body have poor blood and lymphatic circulation and slow fat metabolism. During a session the suction and massage stimulate the lipolysis and activate the fat release which is transferred into a source of energy for muscles. The infrared and RF heat the fatty tissue which results in shrinking of the fat cells and increasing the blood flow improving the metabolism of stored energy.
How will it contour and tighten my skin?
As our skin matures, the collagen and elastin proteins which help support a tight skin structure start to break down. As skin loses elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles start to appear.
The bi-polar radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and fat cells drain then shrink, while those all important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibres. The effect of this is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible lift. Fat cells are reduced and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.
How many treatments are required and when will results be seen?
It is recommended to start with a course of 10 treatments which should be performed 5 days apart and maintenance treatments every three months. The results are gradual and cumulative throughout a course of treatments but will result in a noticeable smoothing of skin and reduction of cellulite and improved contour.
Is the procedure painful?
The treatment is not painful and can be likened to a deep tissue massage. The area will become warm and you will feel suction and a kneading sensation depending on what mode is being used.
What is it used for?
- Body slimming and contouring
- Body circumference reduction
- Cellulite reduction and treatment
- Skin tightening
- Wrinkle removal

Please Note: This treatment is not a weight loss treatment and therefore is not suitable for an obese person. An ideal candidate is someone who is seeking fat reduction from a specific area and it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a healthy eating plan and regular exercise to optimise the benefits of the treatment.
