Dr Natalie Blakely, Medical Director of the Light Touch Clinic.
Our award winning clinic offers a number of non-surgical treatments that tackle unwanted fat and cellulite. This variety allows our highly trained medical cosmetic professionals to provide the perfect solution based on individual patient needs – including body sculpting to help trim stubborn fat and smoothing skin to rid bumps and imperfections.

Cellulite can affect both sexes, but is more common in women. For women over 30, studies suggest there is a 90% chance they have been affected by cellulite at some point in their lives.

Our clinic provides some fantastic non-surgical alternatives liposuction with our range of fat reduction treatments.
A lot of our patients come to us looking for help at meeting their ideal weight when diet and exercise alone won’t shift stubborn fat, particularly around the upper arms and stomach. Body contouring treatments like our CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure (read Dr Blakely’s personal testimonial) and the hugely popular Vanquish radiofrequency treatment can help remove fat quickly and with minimal downtime*.

An increase in body weight could also be caused by the menopause. We have recently started offering our patients Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) which balances and replenishes the body’s hormones naturally and relieving the menopausal symptoms, including weight gain.
