Home for Body Sculpting London
At our London practice, we specialise in Body Sculpting with various techniques. Our non-invasive methods utilises the BodyFx technology by Inmode.
Exercise and following a healthy diet are crucial for our all-around physical health with its benefit extending far beyond our physical appearance. However, following a healthy diet and exercise regimen does not always mean that our bodies are contoured and smooth as we would like it to be. That is to say, the appearance of some areas of fat or cellulite in the abdomen, back or legs can form and be extremely difficult to get rid of without external assistance.
At our London Clinic, we address these concerns with body sculpting systems that provide non-surgical, low downtime options, aimed at body sculpting and fat removal.

What is Body Sculpting London for?
at our London clinic we use body sculpting as a long-lasting, non-invasive method of reshaping the body. It is ideal for targeting stubborn areas of fat and cellulite to eliminate and treat:
- The abdomen, including ‘muffin tops’ and ‘mummy tummies’;
- The back, including ‘love handles’ and bra bulges;
- The inner and outer thighs, including ‘saddle bags’;
- Reshaping the buttocks.
Forma is another body sculpting modality we use to provide additional skin tightening. The Forma technology can be used when there is skin laxity as well as fatty tissues.
The Regenerative Factor
We specialise in incorporating regenerative medicine techniques with all the aesthetic treatments that we perform at the Rae Clinic. As a result, we optimise natural healing and ensure the best results from your treatment.
Body sculpting benefits from the addition of polypeptides, vitamins, and amino acids to help the body to metabolise fat cells and get the best results from the treatment.
How does it work?
At our London Clinic the Body Sculpting treatments combines three modalities of the Bodyfx device :
- We use controlled delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy to produce optimal heating effects. Consequently, we are able to reach the optimal temperature for fat destruction before the energy automatically cuts off.
- Subsequently, High voltage, permanently destroys fat cells by altering the composition of the cells, leading to cell death or apoptosis;
- Finally, a vacuum action helps to break down the fat cells. In addition, the vacuum suction pulls in the fat, allowing the heat to reach the correct depth.
We use the Forma device to additionally deliver bi-polar radio-frequency at higher energy in order to uniformly tighten the skin. This is done by stimulating new collagen and elastin production.
How do I know if I am suitable for body sculpting?During a consultation at our London clinic, you will discuss the areas of the body you are interested in targeting and whether BodyFX alone or in combination with the Forma RF for skin laxity, is the most suitable treatment for you.
If you are pregnant or currently breastfeeding you will not be suitable for radio-frequency body contouring treatment and will need to await the period of weaning your child before we can embark on a treatment plan.
What can I expect to happen during treatment?During the body sculpting treatment we place the hand-piece on the skin to pull the area treated into the applicator head and deliver radio-frequency waves.
The hand-piece can then be moved to the next treated area treated before the entire area has been addressed.
Finally, treatment sessions last approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
How many treatments will I need?The exact number of treatment sessions required will depend on the size of the area being targeted. However, we usually recommend a programme of between six to eight treatment sessions spaced one to two weeks apart. A tailored programme to suit your needs will be discussed with our doctor.
Does It hurt?During a body sculpting treatment you might notice a sensation of warmth as the radio-frequency energy is delivered, as well as a feeling of flicking or tapping when the electrical pulse is transferred.
Treatment with radio-frequency body contouring devices is usually tolerable with most patients experiencing minimal discomfort.
What are the possible side effects?Expect redness, minor swelling, and warmth to the touch in the treated area for several hours following treatment. This should subside within 24 hours. There is no real downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately.
What results can I expect?At our London clinic, with each body sculpting session (6-8 sessions), you will experience immediate skin tissue tightening. However, fat reduction and noticeable improvements in the circumference of the area treated will begin to show after six to twelve weeks, as your body naturally metabolises the damaged fat cells.
Improvements will continue in the weeks following your final treatment session.
How long will body sculpting london results last?The best results are achieved over multiple treatment sessions and we also recommend maintenance treatments every six to twelve months.
The longevity of results is variable, and dependent on lifestyle including diet type and exercise regimen, which all impact future fat and weight gain.
