Most of us know them as well as the back of our hands, but love handles can be a real source of stress and misery when it comes to the way your body looks. Defined as any excess fat around a person’s waistline, love handles can be the most stubborn areas of fat to get rid of or even tone down.
What causes love handles?
A person’s love handles are primarily caused by fat retention around the stomach and hips. These are caused by fat cells which are made when the body consumes more calories than it burns off.
For women, the fat is more likely to accumulate around the hips, bottom and thighs because of the way our bodies develop through puberty. However, love handles can also be formed through hormone changes, age, sleep deprivation or a condition that can slow down your metabolism. Though they aren’t dangerous in themselves, being overweight can pose serious health risks, including raising blood pressure and cholesterol, contributing to breathing issues or causing cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
What can I do?
There are a variety of treatments you can undergo to reduce the appearance of love handles and over time, shrink them so that your body forms a more natural, smooth shape. These should be undertaken alongside a healthy and active lifestyle formed of a balanced diet and regular exercise - but this alone can still make the fat difficult to shift. Treatments that have many women singing their praises include CoolTech - the process of freezing and destroying stubborn fat cells - and Velashape, a contouring treatment designed to tone the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What do these treatments do?
Velashape and CoolTech both target stubborn areas where fat can accumulate on the body, especially around the buttocks, arms, hips and stomach. Both are non-surgical treatments that have minimal side effects. The one key difference? One freezes the fat cells, the other uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen to tighten the skin.
Combined with diet and regular workouts, these treatments could give you quick, stunning results without having to resort surgery. Say goodbye to those love handles! Get in touch with us on 04 343 7987 for more information.

Best wishes to all and hope to see you soon, for maintenance only.
Been doing Vellasmooth for 3 weeks and have already lost more than 7cm from my abdomen. Amazing results!! Fantastic Treatment, lovely friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Thanks Slimspa
Thank you so much! Not only I lost some cm but I spent great time here. Each session I came more relaxed. What more can I expect? Thank you again and see you next time.

Great service & ambience at slimspa.
A big thank you to all spa team for your nice welcoming, always smiling, for your patience and efforts to meet any needs. I have not always been an easy going client but you have all been very consistent in your efforts and always very comforting. Slimspa is not only a spa but a lovely family.
Thank you, had a lovely and relaxing lymphatic massage.
Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!
Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.
To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.
I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .
Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!
Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.
It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.
I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.
The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience
Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.
Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.
Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
