    The clinic has seen bookings increasedouble fold since recent media reviews fromcelebrities such as Luisa Zissman, KristinaRihanoff and Casey Batchelor who admit tohaving the new fat freezing treatment.

    The non-invasive UltraSlim LipoFreezeprocedure eliminates fat without surgery inareas around the hips, tummy, thighs, arms,and love handles by freezing stubborn fatcells that live beneath the dermal layer ofthe skin. Developed in 2005 and backed bystrong clinical research and trials,LipoFreeze (fat freezing) is based onCryolipolysis - the use of preciselycontrolled cooling to remove fat. It is anFDA-approved non-invasive bodycontouring procedure available to patientswith no scarring, no pain and no downtime.It provides permanent results and promisesa reduction of the treated area by up to 40%in a single session.

    A patient will be able to see changes in aboutthree weeks time, but dramatic improvementcan be appreciated after two to three months.Hanna McCormac at UltraSlim Clinics inBelfast encourages her clients to maintain ahealthy lifestyle for optimum results. She said:I often tell my clients I can remove lovehandles, but its entirely up to you to maintainthis through diet and lifestyle. I find themajority of my clients follow the goodaftercare advice given as the results achievedoften provide clients with the motivationneeded to change their lifestyle in order tomaintain these.

    With the exclusive UltraSlim LipoFreezedevice, UltraSlim Clinics now provide thesame quality treatments as Londons HarleyStreet Clinics only at a fraction of the cost.Hanna explains: Our exclusive UltraSlimLipoFreeze device uses four hand pieces,unlike most other clinics including the topclinics in London which only use one handpiece. Therefore, we are able to treat larger

She continued: Its because of thistechnology and capability that we can offerthe most cost effective cryolipolysistreatments in Northern Ireland.
