Wales’ largest spa at The Vale Resort in Hensol has turned to science to help brides-to-be lose last minute inches in the run up to their big day.
The award-winning spa has invested in Lipofirm Plus, a new treatment which uses a process called ultrasonic cavitation to target and destroy fat cells. The treatment leads the way when it comes to inch loss, body sculpting, cellulite removal and skin tightening, and it is not uncommon to lose between four and eight centimetres after just one treatment.
It also uses radio frequencies to firm up loose skin and stimulate collagen formation which helps to combat the signs of aging.
The treatment can be accurately targeted to areas that need attention, including calves, thighs, buttocks and arms to improve overall inch and fat loss, cellulite removal or body contouring, making it ideal for women who want to drop a dress size and look their best for their wedding photos.
It is already hugely popular across Europe where it is considered as a safe and non-invasive alternative to surgical liposuction.
Claire Caddick, spa and leisure manager at the Vale Resort, said: “I admit I was sceptical when I first heard about the treatment so I decided the only way to find out for sure if it worked was to try it for myself.
“I had a session and was shocked by the difference it made. I lost 4.5 inches from my waist in 22 minutes, then another three inches two weeks later. It hasn’t come back on and I can now get into my skinny jeans that had been languishing at the back of the wardrobe.
“I decided there and then that the treatment is perfect for our clients who are planning for their wedding and want to make sure they fit into their ideal dress and look radiant for their wedding photos. In fact, we are so confident in our new product that we’re even offering a money back guarantee!*
“In life, there are no quick fixes and at the Vale Resort, we always advise people who want to get in shape for their wedding to first and foremost eat healthily and take plenty of exercise. But these treatments can give people that extra bit of help as part of a wider healthy living regime, and are a safer alternative to surgery.”
The treatment is the latest addition to the Vale Spa which underwent a £250,000 refurbishment last year, and saw the launch of a number of exclusive new features, including four relaxation zones.
The new facilities saw the Resort awarded a five-bubble rating from the Good Spa Guide, the highest rating of its kind. The Guide also named the Vale’s Sundari Odati massage treatment the Most Marvellous Massage in the UK at its 2012 Good Spa Awards.
The Vale was named as a runner up in the Residential Spa of the Year category at the Professional Beauty Awards 2012, and has been short listed as a finalist for 2013.
The Vale Spa has 19 luxury treatment rooms, four relaxation zones, 20m swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
The Vale Resort is based in 650 acres of historic Welsh countryside, in Hensol, the Vale of Glamorgan. As well as the five-bubble spa, it offers all the facilities expected of the highest rated four-star hotel in Wales including an AA Rosette restaurant and two championship golf courses.
An hour Lipofirm Plus treatment will cost £99.
*Money Back Guarantee - If you do not lose at least one inch on the first treatment, the Vale Resort will refund your treatment cost. Measurements will be taken before and after your treatment. This applies to individual treatments.
