LipoFirm Pro — A Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck at Coco Nail Bar, Notting Hill
It sounds like snake oil. A quick, safe, simple treatment which improves and sculpts your skin tone, whether your bum, tum, or even your jawline or neck. But LipoFirm Pro is as close to a silver bullet as I’ve known when it comes to erasing those flabby bits you just can’t shift.
LipoFirm Pro is a treatment which consists of a handheld machine being massaged over your fatty bits a few times, and the effect is that melts away the fat so that the unwanted extra passes into your system for your lymphatic drainage system to dispose of.
My daughter and I walk past Coco Nail Bar on Portobello Road every day, and in the past, we have rolled our eyes at the ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures in their window. As if a therapist in a room in small city salon can perform such zipping-up miracles when it comes to tightening up your silhouette… I cynically thought. Then I had a cup of tea with a friend who swears by LipoFirm Pro for shaping her num, and I couldn’t resist putting this treatment to the test.
I booked in for a session and my therapist couldn’t have been sweeter or more relaxed and professional, which was a good start. I lay down on the bed and I’m not going to lie, the initial sensation of currents from a hot roller on my blubbery bits wasn’t pleasant. But I switched some music onto my phone to distract and I got used to it soon enough.
LipoFirm Pro uses heat and electric pulses to reduce your fat — which this mum definitely has a little pouch of. But more than that, it tightens up loose skin which exercise and dieting often can’t quite deal with. Based on heat and muscle contraction on the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin, it definitely airbrushed away some of the dimple-y cellulite-y skin tone I had on my abdomen in only two sessions.
The results are almost immediately detectable — and then over the next couple of days, it continues to work. Team that with drinking lots of water, healthy eating and exercise and even for those of us with a bulge won’t feel as scared of wearing a bikini. Admittedly as a journalist, I’m lucky as I don’t have to take that initial financial gamble, as I can experience a therapy in the name of research: but next time I want to get beach ready in a jiffy I’ll be putting my money where my tummy is.
A 30-minute stomach and waist session costs £180, but they offer significant reductions for a course.
