FAQ

 

Is the Body Contouring treatment safe?

The Lipo treatment is 100% non-invasive, with no known harmful side effects.


Who is the ideal candidate?

The Lipo treatment is the ideal treatment for all body types when combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle. It works synergistically with the body’s natural weight loss mechanisms. It specifically targets troublesome areas to remove inches.


How many Lipo treatments do I need for each spot?

People typically do 9 treatments depending on how many inches they want to lose off their body.


Where Can the Lipo treatment Be Used?

The Lipo treatment offers a safe and effective spot fat reduction solution that can be applied to multiple problem areas:

• Waistline

• Mid and lower abdomen

• Upper, mid, and lower back

• Buttocks and thigh areas

  1. Arms and underarms

  2. Chin


How Quickly Will I See Results?

Most clients will see measurable results after their first treatment. The standard treatment protocol consists of three, 40-50 minute treatment sessions every week for 3 weeks. Best results are achieved when utilizing the whole body vibration equipment for 10 minutes immediately after the treatment.


How Many Inches Can I Expect To Lose?

In a Double Blind study, participants who completed a nine series treatment protocol lost an average of 3 to 7 inches around their waistline.  The best results were received from clients who also participated in a healthy diet and exercise regimen.


How Does The Lipo treatment Work?

The Lipo energy safely penetrates the skin targeting the fat cells (Subcutaneous layer). Once the cells are permeated, they release fatty acids, water and glycerol, or triglycerides. The triglycerides are released from the fat cells and the body uses them as an energy source. The fat cells then “shrink” significantly resulting in inch loss and the removal of cellulite.


What is the vibration platform?

The vibration platform causes increased local circulation to targeted areas, giving the visible cellulite area a "smoother" look. 

The vibration platform works from the inside out.  Waste products are expelled at the cellular, lymphatic and excretion level.

The vibration platform stimulates all cells in the body, increases blood flow and oxygen intake and stimulates metabolism to help flush out toxins.


What can I Expect During a Treatment?

You can relax in a comfortable position while a certified technician secures the multi-diode paddles and EN probes to the target area. In 10 minute intervals, you are free to relax, read and listen to music.


What Happens After a Treatment?

You are free to resume normal activities immediately after each session—including exercise. Remember: the Lipo treatment is safe, non-invasive, and you will experience no pain or side effects.


What happens as the light hits the fatty tissue?

This procedure disrupts the external membrane of the fat cell, inducing lipolysis.


What is released during treatment?

Triglycerides; Water, Glycerol, and Free Fatty Acids.


Where do the Free Fatty Acids go?

Once the free fatty acids leave the cell and enter the interstitial space, they are then absorbed by the lymphatic system. Additionally, when combined with oxygen, Free Fatty Acids produce energy.


Where does Glycerol go?

Glycerol diffuses widely and rapidly throughout all the water in the body, passes through the blood stream and appears in the urine. Additionally, glycerol is converted by the liver into a useful energy source—Glucose.


Are there any harmful side effects or contraindications?

This is non-invasive with no harmful side effects. The contraindications include pregnancy, epilepsy, cancer and patients with pacemakers in addition to a few other medical conditions that we will screen for.


What are the benefits of Lipo treatment?

Lipo treatments are a non-surgical, non-invasive, safe, natural, pain-free way to achieve spot fat reduction in areas that are resistant to the effects of diet and exercise. There is also no downtime and no side effects with Lipo treatments.

What are the Contraindications for the Lipo treatment?
There are 11 known Contraindications (health conditions that we will screen) for the Lipo treatments:

     1) Pregnancy / Breast Feeding

     2) Epilepsy

     3) Immune Disorders
     4) Thyroid Disorders
     5) Uncontrolled Hypertension
     6) Pace Maker
     7) Heart Disease
     8) Irregular Heart Beat
     9) Liver Disorders
     10) Kidney Disorders
     11) Cancer


What is the Protocol?

The patient protocol is as follows:

  1.   1) 20 - 40 minutes of Lipo treatments (up to 80 min for thighs)
      2) 10 minutes on the vibration platform
      3) 48 hours between treatments (e.g. Mon, Wed, Fri)
          This gives the body time to process the Triglycerides that were released.


What can I do to achive the best results?

There are several things the patient can do to achieve maximum results:

     1) Detox for 2 weeks prior to your Lipo treatment.
     2) Monitor and be careful of how many calories you take in vs. how many calories you burn.
     3) Exercise.  Although the Lipo treatment releases the Triglycerides from inside the fat cell, exercising will continue to
         assist your body in flushing the Triglycerides out of your body.
     4) Lymphatic Wrap.  A Lymphatic Body wrap will clean the Lymphatic system allowing the Triglycerides to exit the
         body more easily.

What about skin tightening / stretch mark reduction & cellulite reduction?
