This 45 minute treatment uses radio frequency and electroporation to destroy fat cells and can be used on the stomach, muffin tops and podgy thighs. Best results are seen after six weekly treatments. Costs from £200 a session.
Forma can also help. It is a painless skin-tightening treatment using radio frequency energy to help stimulate new collagen. You will need to commit to at least six weekly hour-long treatments for the best results. From £150 a session.
