What is the Lipo Light?
Lipo Light is a 100% LED non-invasive body contouring system which utilizes pads placed against the skin in areas of the body you need to shape and tone, including those difficult to reach waist, thigh, upper leg and arm areas. Each pad emits a warm red light at 635 namometers. At this wavelength, there is no pain, bruising, swelling, burning or other side effects.
How does Lipo Light work?
The 635 namometer LED light safely penetrates the skin and energizes the adipocytes (fat cells) which causes an accelerated pore opening. The contents of the fat cells (consisting primarily of fatty acids, glycerol and water) are then released and carried to the lymph system to then be used for energy during post-treatment exercise. Think of the shrinking of the fat cell to be like transforming a grape to a raisin! Lipo Light can help reduce contours and inches due to excess fat while you maintain your lean muscle mass and can oftentimes deliver effective results in just a few treatments. However, it is NOT a weight loss method or diet plan in and of itself. It should be an important part of an overall healthy eating plan and exercise-based lifestyle.
When will I see results of my Lipo Light treatments and how long will my results last?
For some clients, results can be seen immediately and most will improve with each subsequent treatment session. We recommend starting with the 8-treatment session package which can potentially achieve dramatic reshaping of the body and reduction in appearance of cellulite. With appropriate calorie intake, healthy eating and regular exercise, the results should be long-lasting.
How often will I need treatments?
We initially recommend two treatments per week, spaced at least 24 hours apart, for four weeks. After the intensive 4-week treatment course, you can return for maintenance treatments after a month or repeat the intensive 4-week course on another problem area of the body.
Is Lipo Light ok for everyone? Is it safe?
The Lipo Light treatments can be used in both men and women age 18+. It is not recommended however for clients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of malignancy or diabetes among other conditions. At your initial consult, our team will review a thorough medical history to confirm suitability. Many independent clinical studies have demonstrated the 635 nanometer LED light to be effective and safe. Treatments are not painful, and while some clients report feeling warmth over the target area some even comment on how relaxing the treatments are.
How long are the treatment sessions?
Twenty minutes are spent with the LED light pads on the target area. It’s highly recommended that post-treatment exercises be done since the released fat cell contents need to be utilized and not reabsorbed. We offer a 10 minute whole body vibration session to help ensure the exercise requirement is met after the LED light session.
What do I need to do before and after my treatment?
- Don’t drink tea, coffee or alcohol for a few hours before/after.
- Don’t eat for at least 2 hours before/after treatment.
- Drink plenty of water before treatment, at minimum 8 glasses of water daily.
- Be able to exercise for at least 30 minutes following treatment, or spend 10 minutes doing whole body vibration.
