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.
A: There are major advantages against invasive processes; including no pain, instant results against up to 16 weeks recovery for liposuction, possible risk of infections with invasive surgery, price advantages, no damage to the body including fat cells as opposed to total removal of cells, blood vessels, post-operative numbness, etc.
A: Lipo-Light Pro 16 paddles– Has Dual Wavelengths 635nm for fat reduction & 900 nm for collagen and elastin for skin tightening and stretch mark reduction.
A: No. Lipo-Light treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.
A: Lipo-Light Pro has 16 paddles. Alternative laser products tend to have 2-4 paddles or do not touch the skin (which decreases efficiency.)
A: Lipo-Light Pro 16 Paddles LED system has 30 medical LED lights fitted to each paddle. (Laser therapy has far less, normally 8-12 diodes).
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, LED absorbs around 70% compared to laser at around 30%. This gives a much higher chance of better results in inch loss and fat reduction.
A: Yes. There are no known risks involved in using Lipo-Light or Lipo-Light Pro and they are considered safe alternatives to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The Lipo-Light treatment is 100% noninvasive and causes no bruising, scarring or downtime. During the treatment you will not feel discomfort, nor will anesthesia be used. You can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
