Frequently asked questions - Lipo
In a few sentences, what is the procedure?
Laser-Like Lipo Light Body Contouring is safe, painless, and completely non-invasive treatment for spot fat reduction and aesthetic body contouring.
Clients have found hard to reduce trouble spots, such as love handles, tummy bulge, saddlebags and more - are significantly reduced with just a few treatments. Laser paddles target adipose (fat) tissue externally through skin for 10 minutes per treatment area.
Results are seen in both circumference measurement and degree of body contour in the area. Clients can optimize their results through multiple Laser-Like Lipo Light Body Contouring treatments combined with cardio type activity post treatment.
Studies have found that clients who eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly will experience the best Laser-Like Lipo Light Body Contouring results. However, even clients with sluggish metabolism remark that they experience a unique and invigorating body wake up.
It is highly recommended that cardio type activity as well as our complementary whole body vibration session be utilized immediately following the Laser-Like Lipo Light Body Contouring session.
How does the Light work to shrink the fat cells?
Light energy emitted by the Laser-Like Lipo Body Contouring safely penetrates the patient's skin. At specific frequencies, coherence and power settings, fat cells absorb the electromagnetic energy from the Light.
When enough energy is absorbed, transitory (short-lived) pores form on the surface of the fat cells. Water, glycerol and free fatty acids then leak out of the fat cells and through the body's natural cleansing system are released into circulation to be processed and removed naturally. This is just like what happens when you exercise.
As a result, the fat cells are smaller which results in inch loss, fat loss and often a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Don't people have to just diet and exercise to lose weight?
Losing weight for many is not just about diet and exercise. It is about caffeine, stress, poor sleep, pain, over eating, under eating, wrong kind of exercise, wrong kind of diet and other lifestyle factors. They can eat less and exercise more, and still not lose weight.
That is where The Slim Light comes in - helping people who have tried, but just cannot seem to produce results. The Slim Light helps them produce results with lifestyle changes.
People who do all the right things, and are mostly healthy and fit, but they still have that one problem area, no matter what they do, the Light can spot reduce.
People who want to be healthy, but lack the motivation because they don't really see any results when they are being healthy, this helps them see really quick results -and now they are more motivated to stick with those healthier lifestyle choices.
How long does it stay off?
Not matter what people do, drugs, surgery, pills, potions, or even diet and exercise, if they don't maintain their lifestyle, no weight will ever stay off. This is no different. To maintain weight loss, there is only one way - no matter what you do or don't do. Keep living a healthy lifestyle.
Is there a guarantee?
If you complete 10 sessions and you do not lose at least 1 inch or more on one measurement with minor lifestyle changes* or noticeable difference in the appearance of the area we will give you additional session until you get there.
*Minor changes include - not eating for 2 hours before or 2 hours after a session, doing at least mild exercise the day of your sessions, drinking at least 100 oz of water, and eating a clean diet.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. Not a single known side effect to this day
Laser-Like Lipo Body Contouring treatments are completely non-invasive and clients feel nothing but warmth. The devices low level Light technology has been studied and used for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes.
What do patients do to maintain the fat loss?
Normal things you need to keep weight off - diet and exercise, drinking water and the like. If people go back to overeating and a poor diet they will gain fat back. But unlike other treatments, clients do not need to as much to retain the fat loss benefits.
What kind of results are produced?
The average in my office is about 11 inches in about six weeks. We have a range of about 7-23 inches in 18 visits.
People who make minor lifestyle changes, are on the higher end of the average, and those who don't, the lower end.
Where does the fat go?
That fat gets burned as energy in the body, or normal metabolic processing-just like when you exercise and release fat.
How quickly will patients see results?
Many clients see measureable results after their first session. The number of sessions they want is the only limitation to how much a patient can lose.
