Lipo light has a positive effect on those areas where body sculpting can prove difficult. Combined with the stimulus of exercise, Lipo-Light is the natural and healthy way to lose inches. The treatment is non-invasive, relaxing and sustained. Lipo light is the very first 100% LED noninvasive body contouring and sculpting system. You will be using low levels of visible red laser light to create a safe and painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. Stored Fat = Stored Energy When energy is required by the body, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down the stored fat. During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. The heat and light emitted from the pads of the Lipo-Light stimulates the release of energy. The combined therapy of heat, light and exercise completes the process of burning this released energy resulting in immediate and visible slimming and toning – but only in the areas you want. How It Works? My-Lipo treatments utilize oval shaped pads, each of which contains 25 diodes that emit a wavelength of 635 nm (Red Light). Each pad produces 300 milliwatts of energy and penetrates 9 millimeters into adipose tissue (layers of fat cells within connective tissue). The pads are placed directly on the skin for 20 minutes for spot fat reduction followed by a lymphatic stimulation. The lymphatic stimulation assists the natural drainage of the lymphatic system to flush away retained lymphatic fluid in the body which, in turn, allows the mobilization of the fat released from adipose tissue after exposure to the Lipo-Light LED lights. Initially, the recommended number of treatments in any course of My-Lipo is two-three per week, thus completing a full inch-loss course over a 4 week period. NO Pain, Bruising, Swelling, Burning, and NO Downtime! Finally, you can target these problem areas: Abdomen, Saddlebags, Hips, Thighs, Arms, Upper Back, Waist, Bra Line. Basically, anywhere you can place the paddles! Lipo-Light does NOT produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighboring nerves or vital organs. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
WHAT IS LIPO LIGHT? Lipo light is the newest evolution of the traditional liposuction. It is a non-invasive pain-free body contouring treatment which delivers immediate results. Lipo Light can effectively produce results in just one treatment, however sustained results take place when combining Lipo Light with a healthy diet and exercise regime. BUT HOW DOES IT WORK? When energy is required by the body, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down the stored fat, a process called lypolysis. During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body.The heat and light emitted from the pads of the Lipo-Light stimulates the release of energy. The combined therapy of heat, light and exercise completes the process of burning this released energy resulting in immediate and visible slimming and toning - but only in the areas you want.
HOW IS LIPO LIGHT DIFFERENT FROM VELASMOOTH AND OTHER PRODUCTS? Other technologies are for cellulite reduction and skin tightening and do not affect fat cells. Lipo Light breaks down the fat cells directly and is truly a form of liposuction. WHO IS SUITABLE FOR LIPO LIGHT? Lipo Light is suitable for most people over the age of 18, however anyone suffering from the following would not be suitable for this treatment:
Persons under 18 years of age
Pregnant or Breastfeeding
Auto Immune disease
Metal Pins or plates
When in doubt, please consult with a physician. HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED? Lipo-Light treatments are structured into courses of 8, 12 and 16. The clinical date is based on 8 sessions to lose 1 to 2 dress sizes. It depends on different factors such as: how many inches you want to lose, your area of concern, your body fat percentage, eating habits, and exercise. In general a body fat percentage of 25% or below will respond in 4-6 visits. A higher body fat percentage will require more visits. We suggest two to three treatments a week over four weeks to complete a full course of Lipo Light Treatments. After the intense 4 week treatments, you could follow one of two treatment paths: 1) Return for two maintenance Lipo Light Treatments a month. 2) Repeat the intensive 4 week program on another area of the body. IS LIPO LIGHT TREATMENT PAINFUL? No, it is not. You may feel warmth over the area being treated. Many clients comment on how relaxing it is. IS LIPO LIGHT SAFE? Yes. Independent clinical studies have shown Lipo Light treatments to be completely safe with no side effects. The Lipo Light simply triggers a natural reaction of fat cells to release their contents, while keeping the cell itself intact, just smaller, giving immediate results. WHICH BODY PARTS CAN BE TREATED WITH LIPO LIGHT? Lipo Light can treat any body part, abdomen, saddle bags,thighs, upper back are and arms. SHOULD ONE EXERCISE AFTER THE TREATMENT? Yes, it's highly recommended that Post Treatment exercises are done. Once the fat cells are broken down after the Lipo Light treatment, the contents of the fat cells need a way to exit the body. If they do not exit the body within a few hours, the released content will be reabsorbed by other fat cells. WILL IT GET RID OF CELLULITE? It reduces contours due to excess fat, not cellulite. However, as Dr. Oz recently stated, no creams will ever reduce cellulite, because cellulite is caused by excess fat in the fat cell which stretches against connective tissue creating the dimple appearance. It will reduce the amount of fat in the fat cells. WILL I LOSE WEIGHT? The Lipo-Light helps with inch loss. It is for spot reduction. If your bodyfat is over 25%, it is recommended that you engage in a weight loss program in conjunction with the treatment to improve your health. HOW LONG WILL EACH LIPO LIGHT SESSION TAKE? The first visit will take approximately 40 minutes, and subsequent visits will take approximately 1/2 hour. CAN I TREAT MORE THAN ONE AREA AT A TIME WITH LIPO LIGHT? Yes you can, and we do offer Whole Body Sessions, however it's not recommended to treat more than one area at a time with Lipo Light due to it being more difficult to excrete the fat from multiple areas and the overall treatment being less effective. We recommend completing one area before starting on another Lipo Light treatment location for optimal results.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE AND AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Do not drink tea, coffee or alcohol before or after the treatment.
Do not eat for at least 2 hours before or after the treatment.
Drink plenty of water after the treatment. At least 8 glasses of water a day.
In order for the released fat to be burned off and not re-stored in the body, it is essential that clients are able to exercise for 30 minutes following each treatment.
WHERE DOES THE FAT GO? The body has a lymphatic system which is comprised of lymph nodes and vessels running throughout, that are responsible for transportation of the fatty acids to the circulatory system for metabolism. The lymph nodes in the lymphatic system release enzymes to break triglycerides down into free-fatty acids, which are then used as energy for the body, and burned off during exercise. CAN THE FAT RETURN? If aerobic exercise is not performed following your Lipo Light session, the fat will be reabsorbed back into the cell. As with liposuction, gaining weight by poor eating habits, and exercise habits will replace the fat that was removed. IS THERE ANYTHING ADDITIONAL I NEED TO DO? Lipo Light is not intended to be used alone. It is a lifestyle decision. You need to watch what you eat, as overeating will fill up the fat cells again, just like any other diet or slimming procedure when you increase your calories. WILL IT WORK FOR EVERYONE? No it does not work for everyone. Not everyone is a candidate. Our experience has taught us which factors will limit your results. In some cases extra steps are taken to ensure good results, and in other cases we will tell you upfront that you are not a candidate. Lipo-Light may not be as effective for men if they have very hard belly fat cells that have been stored for many years. Also, if you have a BMI of less than 18.5, you would be classed as underweight and your level of body fat would be too low for Lipo-Light treatment. SHOULD ONE EXERCISE AFTER THE TREATMENT? Yes, it's highly recommended that Post Treatment exercises are done. HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME FROM LIPO LIGHT? Good news! Tere is no recovery period and no downtime after Lipo Light sessions.
