Overview of Liposuction & All Available Liposuction Treatments

We at Skin Doctor Clinics believe in the highest quality of care and treatment for our clients. With some of our equipment unique to the UK and a team of fully qualified doctors and therapists, our treatments are second to none. At our clinics in Leeds and York we offer some of the most innovative technology in non-surgical skin tightening and fat reduction, which include…

Body Jet Liposuction and Fat Transfer

Body Jet is some of the world’s best liposuction and fat transfer technology, and a gentle approach to body contouring. It allows our experts to perform liposuction with the option of transferring the collected fat to other parts of the body, like the buttocks.

3D Lipomed

3D Lipomed is the medical grade big sister of the popular 3D Lipo treatments, offering an improved update of this powerful technology. This powerful and revolutionary new approach to liposuction reduces body fat by destroying fat cells completely.

Fat Reduction

Wave localised fat and deep cellulite goodbye with cavitation, the latest in non-surgical body contouring. If you want to reduce fat, define your waist, or shave inches off your thighs with visible and immediate results, then Skin Doctor Clinics has your solution.

Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing)

When fat cells are exposed to a targeted and precise cooling below body temperature, they undergo a localised cell death that does not effect other body cells and is completely non-invasive.

Vacuum Dermology (Cellulite Reduction)

Cellulite is caused by fat cells pushing against your skin, creating a dimpling effect. A quick and easy way to deal with unwanted cellulite is vacuum dermology, proudly offered by Skin Doctor Clinics in York and Leeds.

Skin Tightening

As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin which causes thinning and a pinchable, sagging effect. Here at Skin Doctor Clinics’ we can offer a non-surgical solution to make your skin look tighter and younger.

Aqualyx® (Fat Dissolving Injections)

Aqualyx® was developed by renowned aesthetics surgeon Professor Motolese and is only available via trained doctors in the UK. Skin Doctor Clinics in York and Leeds are owned solely by doctors, with procedures carried out by experienced and trained practitioners, so we are proud to offer this non-surgical fat reduction.
