Lipo-Light Treatments

Lipo-Light is an advanced slimming and toning program which is one of the latest in non-surgical liposuction. It offers a non-invasive body contouring treatment that promises to deliver immediate results. The treatment uses the power of LED Light Therapy which is a natural and healthy way to lose inches on fat problem areas such as the hips, thighs, upper legs, waist, arms, as well as the chin.

The method allows patients to undergo body contouring improvement without scarring. It attacks fat cells under the skin and releases its contents between cells, appearing as a natural way for targeted fat loss without downtime.

How It Works

Lipo-Light advanced slimming and toning LED light safely penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the fat cells. The stimulation opens the cell walls destroying the fat contents and allowing it to escape. Fats are then released to the surrounding body tissues where it will be naturally “burned off” during post-treatment exercise and activities. Exercise and stimulation of the lymphatic system increase metabolism emulsifying fats.

During times when energy is required by the body, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down the stored fat in a process called lipolysis. Free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body during the process. Heat and light emitted from the pads used in Lipo-Light stimulate the release of energy. The liquefied fats will then be moved from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell.

Fats not consumed as energy goes to the liver where it will either be oxidized or re-processed for storage. It is unknown how much will be oxidized or re-stored and there is no visible or measurable redistribution of fat in the treated areas.

The Procedure

Lipo-Light uses LED Light Therapy that causes a modification of the cell chemistry in the treated areas. It uses several pads to help achieve maximum results for each treatment session.

It is recommended that between 4 and 8 treatment pads should be used at any one time over each area. More pads and watts allow treatments to be quicker, cover more areas, and yield better results.

The LED system has a higher absorption rate compared to laser due to the refraction and strength of the beam. LED typically has 70% absorption rates compared to lasers that have around 30%. Treatments last for a period of 20 minutes with a further 10 minutes for making measurements before and after each treatment. A single treatment would mobilize approximately 300 calories with a noticeable inch loss off 1-2 inches. The standard course is 8 to 10 sessions with twice a week visit for 4 weeks. Only 2 treatments a week I encouraged to allow the blood fatty acid levels to stabilize after each treatment.

Benefits

Most clinics claim that Lipo-Light produces visible positive changes to the body. This includes:

  • Toning of the treated areas due to the heat and light generated by the device. The collagen production is enhanced with skin tightening and firming.
  • Ability to impede the production of new fat cells
  • The triggering of lipolysis wherein free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream.

Lipo-Light Compared to Traditional Liposuction

Liposuction is an invasive method of fat reduction that involves mechanical removal of fat cells. In contrast, Lipo-Light is completely non-invasive and only affects fat cells.
