A: 20 minutes.
Q: Do you have to exercise post treatment?
A: Yes, it is essential that post treatment the client exercises to speed up the lymphatic system. We provide a 10 minute session of vibration plate therapy or treadmill following a lipo-light session.
Q: Do you take measurements of the areas treated?
A: Three separate measurements are taken of the area treated before treatment commences and near the end of the recommended treatment.
Q: How many calories will a single treatment lose?
A: A single treatment would release approximately 300 to 500 calories of fat per treatment.
Q: What are the advantages of Lipo-Light over invasive processes?
A: There are major advantages of Lipo-Light vs. invasive processes:
- No pain, no bruising, no swelling, no burning, no anesthesia required, essentially no side effects!
- Instant results vs. up to 16 weeks recovery for liposuction
- No risk of infections as with invasive surgery
- No damage to body including fat cells as opposed to total removal of cells, blood vessels, etc.
- Lipo-Light is a lot less expensive than liposuction.
Q: Can you be a little more scientific?
A: 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.
Chromophores are part of a molecule which can absorb certain wavelengths of visible light. Specific wavelengths of light cause fat cell membranes to lose their round shape by changing the permeability of the cell. This light creates photobiomodulation within the adipose cells signaling a change inside each adipose cell, creating pores or channels in the cell wall. This alteration of the cell triggers the release of an enzyme (lipase) which can break the triglyceride molecules down into fatty acids and glycerol molecules which are now small enough to pass through the pores of the cell wall releasing stored fat.
After a 20 minute treatment, exercise is essential to create the demand for energy which can now be met by the released fatty acids and glycerol from the adipose cells, completing the inch loss process.
Q: How many treatments are necessary?
A: The standard course is 8-16 sessions, up to 3 times per week for 4-6 weeks. Depending on the desired results and the amount of inches you wish to lose, more sessions may be necessary. Maintenance treatments are recommended afterward at twice per month for 4 months.
Q: What is the wave length of the Lipo-Light LEDs?
A: 635 nm.
Q: How many paddles does the Lipo-Light have?
A: The Lipo-Light has 8 paddles whereas generally laser products tend to have 2-4 paddles. By having 8 paddles, there is no need to disturb the client half way thought the treatment to reposition the paddles.
Q: How many diodes per paddle?
A: The Lipo-Light LED system has 30 medical LED lights fitted to each paddle creating a very intense treatment.
Q: What is the absorption rate of the Lipo-Light?
A: The Lipo-Light LED system has a very high absorption rate giving exceptional results in inch loss and fat reduction.
Q: Is Lipo-Light safe?
A: The Lipo-Light LED system is a safe system that will not harm the eyes, although we do recommend glasses are used for facial treatments as the strong light source could cause headaches or migraine if the client is susceptible.
Q: Even if I am in shape, can I benefit from Lipo-Light?
A: Yes. Many people who are in shaper have specific areas of fat they would like to remove. Lipo-Light is a ale to target these problem areas effectively. In fact, lipo-light can boost collagen and make the skin firmer.
Q: What certification does Lipo-Light have?
A: Manufacturers CE certificate.
