Lipo Light Fat reduction
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.
How it works
The heat and light emitted from the pads of the Lipo-Light stimulates the release
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.
Lipo-Light can deliver effective results in just one treatment. However, sustained
results take place when continued LED Light Therapy is used in conjunction with
a healthy diet and exercise regime.
Who is suitable for Lipo-Light treatment?
Lipo-Light is suitable for most people over the age of 18 years but, as with many treatments, there are some contraindications. Anyone suffering from the following would not be suitable for this treatment:
• Persons under 18 years old
• Pregnancy and breastfeeding
• Kidney/liver disease
• Heart disease/Heart Pacemaker
• Medical oedema
• Auto Immune disease
• Metal pins or plates
• Thyroid problems
• Urine infection
what do I need to do before and after my treatment?
Do not drink tea, coffee or alcohol before or after treatment and drink plenty of water after treatment. Do not eat for at least 2 hours before or after treatment.
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.
How long do treatments last?
Treatments take 20-30 minutes. However, the first appointment will be longer to allow for completion of medical forms and measuring.
How many treatments will I need?
Results can usually be seen after one treatment. However, for maximum results, a course of 8-10 treatments is recommended. These are usually taken twice per week over a 4-5 week period.
I have several areas from which I wish to remove fat - can I do them all at once?
No. With Lipo-Light you want to target specific areas, such as belly fat, for your sessions. You will have more effective results this way as we can target the proper lymphatic elimination areas and produce better fat loss results. Once you complete an area, you may do additional courses to reduce excess fat in other areas.
Will it work on me?
Only 3% of people treated have shown minimal results – you can expect to lose 2 cm to 6 cm over the 8-10 treatments programme.
Are there any risks involved and does it hurt?
There are no risks and it does not hurt.
Is it effective after having a child?
Lipo-Light is very effective on new mums who are not breastfeeding.
What are the advantages over laser?
It is a safe and effective treatment. There is no danger to the eyes or other organs. Laser system is more of direct beam. The LED beam refracts therefore covers a greater area. Results are greatly improved.
Is maintenance required?
This is optional dependant on your size and the results achieved. The results are permanent but many clients like to have top-up sessions every month or so.
How long before I see results?
The inch loss can be seen immediately but further inch loss can occur during the day.
What does it feel like?
The LED pads get warm during the treatment. Most clients find it a very relaxing and soothing experience.
