We look forward to speaking with you regarding how you can regain and maintain your quality of life with Lipo-Light Pro… the most high tech, cutting-edge, non-invasive Body Contouring technology available.
Q: How does Lipo-Light work?
A: Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that Lipo-Light 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.
Q: How Effective is this technology?
A: There are literally thousands of successful Lipo Light facilities all over the globe. Clients typically enjoy results between 3 to 9 inches lost over the course of a 3 week, 9 session protocol. These results are permanent. Unlike a wrap in which you normally lose only water weight, Lipo Light results are permanent and truly long standing.
Q: What are the advantages of LED over invasive processes?
A: There are major advantages over invasive processes: no pain and no damage to the body including fat cells. With invasive procedures there is total removal of adipose (fat) cells, blood vessels, post-operative numbness, etc. Lipo-Light provides instant results without a 16-week recovery as needed for liposuction. Lipo-Light also eliminates possible risk of infections with invasive surgery and offers an economic advantage.
Q: What is the wave length of the LEDs?
A: Lipo-Light Pro has Dual Wavelengths — 635nm for fat reduction & 900 nm for skin tightening and stretch mark reduction.
Q: How many paddles does Lipo-Light have?
A: Lipo-Light Pro has 16 paddles with 30 diodes per paddle. Alternative laser products tend to have 2-4 paddles with 4-10 diodes or do not touch the skin (which decreases efficiency).
Q: What is the absorption rate of Lipo-Light?
A: The LED system has a far higher absorption rate as opposed to laser treatment therapy due to the refraction and strength of the beam. Typically, each fat cell absorbs approximately 70% of the LED light energy compared to only a 40% absorption rate for laser. This gives a much higher chance for better results in inch loss and fat reduction.
Q: Is it safe?
A: The technology is safe and FDA approved. There are no known risks involved in using Lipo-Light Pro, and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The Lipo-Light treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, no scarring and no downtime. During the treatment you will not feel discomfort, nor will anesthesia be required. You can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Q: Are the treatments painful? Are there any side effects?
A: There is no pain involved. The treatments are very relaxing and soothing. There are no known side effects.
Q: How many calories will a single treatment burn?
A: A single, 20-minute treatment would mobilize approximately 350 calories; however, tests have shown more.
Q: Do you have to exercise post treatment?
A: Yes. It is a required part of the protocol that post treatment exercises are done to engage the lymphatic system through muscle movement. This involves 10 minutes on one of our Noblerex K-1 Platinum Whole Body Vibration Machines.
