What is Lipo Laser?
A Lipo Laser is a non-invasive laser device that successfully reduces fat by delivering safe low level laser energy to treat any area of the body.
How does non-invasive Laser Lipo technology work?
Non-invasive Laser Lipo technology works with a patented cold laser conductor. Originally designed to speed up healing, doctors noticed that the cold laser technology would also liquefy fat cells painlessly.
In contrast to Liposuction, the non-invasive Laser Lipo does not remove the fat cell, it drains it. The fat can be drained by a healthy person's lymphatic system reducing by a few inches each week. The Laser Lipo works by focusing the cold red laser which permeates to the fat cells and triggers the cell membrane to break and release the fat from the cells. It is safe, painless and completely non-invasive.
Where does the fat go?
Laser Lipo treatments result in the liquefaction of fats, the liquefied fat is then drained through lymph drainage. The effectiveness of fat drainage during and after treatment is dependent on proper functioning of the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing wastes from the body.
What happens after each treatment?
One can resume normal activities immediately as the Laser Lipo is completely noninvasive with no down-time whatsoever. After the treatment it is encouraged that you do some sort of cardio type activity to move things along. i.e.: use a whole body vibration machine, jumping on a mini trampoline, Stairmaster, treadmill or a brisk walk.
What results can one expect from the Laser Lipo treatment?
Male and female clients have found that those hard to reduce trouble spots, such as love handles, tummy bulge, and saddlebags can be treated quite significantly within just a few treatments.
How does it work?
Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that a low level LipoLaser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
What can I expect at my appointments?
The treatment is completely painless & you can expect to relax. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated. This is a symptom -free process except for losing unwanted inches.
How is it different than liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia. In contrast, our treatment is a 100% non-invasive that uses a low level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cell and emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles and no downtime.
How deep into tissue can a laser penetrate?
The depth of penetration of laser light depends on many parameters such as the laser's wavelength, power, type of device driver (pulse or continuous wave mode), and the technique used. Our technology covers all these variables to produce the optimal effect.
Is there any downtime?
Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Are there any limitations to what I can do if I'm using a LipoLaser?
No. During the treatment period you can continue your normal activities. It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the treatment protocol: stay hydrated (8-10 glasses of water a day), continue to eat healthy and exercise (walk at least 30 minutes a day) and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it which can decrease your results.
What areas of the body can I use a LipoLaser on?
The treatment can be used effectively on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips and thighs which can all be targeted in 1 treatment. Other areas include upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back fat and buttocks.
What does post vibration platform exercise do?
The underlying mechanism with whole body vibration is elicitation of muscular activity. The effects include increased blood flow, oxygenation and heat with release of hormone responses comparable to that found after resistance type exercise.
Vibration exercise elicits a mild cardiovascular activity, and muscular mechanisms of fatigue, requiring energy.
While fat, in the form of Fatty Acids, is a very desirable energy source, it is dependent on the presence of oxygen to be useful.
Whole Body Vibration acts in two ways:
a) Stimulates muscles, which creates the need for energy. Free Fatty Acids are released by the paddles which combine with oxygen and produce the energy needed for these muscles.
b) In circumstances where the energy is required by the body more quickly than oxygen can be delivered to the required location, the body will switch to its less energy efficient anaerobic system. When the body is using one of its anaerobic energy systems, it cannot utilize Free Fatty Acids, but it will simply generate less energy with a resulting greater depletion rate of glucose. This glucose is obtained from the released Glycerol and its conversion in liver.
A total length of 10 minutes on the Whole Body Vibration (exercise application) is equivalent to length and intensity of training stimulus that can be reached by performing 150 times leg press or half squat exercises with extra loads of 3 body mass twice a week for 5 weeks.
Is Laser Lipo safe?
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the low-level laser therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipo dissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. With the Lipo Laser, there is proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced. The treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Is it safe if I have a medical condition such as diabetes?
Yes, with two exceptions. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, Lipo Laser procedures should not be used. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment may not be for you. There are no known detrimental risks but potential unknown risks may exist. Lipo sculpture may not be as effective on patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.
Are there any side affects?
No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
How long do results last?
By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results. This is especially ideal for 2 types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat % OR those who want to use the Laser Lipo treatment and the recommended lifestyle protocol to "jump start" their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.
Can I do the procedure multiple times? And how soon after my last treatment can I do a second treatment?
Yes, with additional treatments you can expect to see improved results. You can start an additional series of treatments immediately following your last treatment. Speak to your technician or physician for more details.
How soon after pregnancy can I do it?
It is recommended that you wait until after your last postpartum visit with your doctor (usually 6 weeks after birth) to begin your treatment. It is not recommended if you are breast feeding.
