LIPO-LIGHT BODY CONTOURING

 

Picture Lipo-Light's advanced slimming and toning program is the latest treatment for non-invasive body contouring.  Using the power of Light Therapy combined with the stimulus of exercise, Lipo-Light is the natural and healthy way to inch loss on the waist, hips, thighs and even the arms. The whole treatment is non-invasive, relaxing, and over sustained and regular use, clients can expect to lose inches from around targeted areas.    

Light Therapy has a positive effect on those areas of the body where stimulated activity of the fat cells can result in reduction of tissue size. The heat and unique wavelength of the light stimulates fat cells to release energy that is then easily metabolized. The process is similar to when your body enters the “fat burning” stage of a good cardiovascular workout. It also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance. It’s completely safe, painless and non-invasive.

  

Light Therapy
When the body needs energy, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down their stored fat in order to release energy. This process is called lypolysis. During this process free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. Add exercise to this process and inch loss begins...
 
The Science behind the Lipo-Light Plan
Chromophores are part of a molecule which can absorb certain wavelengths of visible light. Specific wavelengths of light (635nm) 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.
 
The Treatment
As the top of the range our Lipo-Light 16 comes equipped with 16 pads, enabling maximum results from each treatment. Depending on the area of the body receiving treatment, between 4 and 16 treatment pads are used at any one time over each treatment area.
The pads are free moving and held in place against the area to be treated by an adjustable strap.
During the treatment, the pads are held directly against the skin for maximum effect. Treatments last for a period of up to 20 minutes and the recommended number of treatments in any course of Lipo-Light is two per week, thus completing a full course over a 4 week period.*
After 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.
After the intensive 4 week course*, you can follow one of 2 treatment paths:
  1. Return for a weekly maintenance treatment (max 2 per month).
  2. Focus on another body area for a new intensive 4 week treatment after 2 weeks.

* This is standard treatment protocol, your specific BMI will determine the recommended number of treatments (more/less) for optimal results.

The Benefits
Lipo-Light is simple to use, hygienic, quick and effective. Because the pads remain in place for the duration of the treatment, the practitioner has the flexibility to focus on other treatments with the same, or other, clients.
Lipo-Light is the most cost-effective body sculpting product in its class. The safety of Light Therapy technology makes for ease of operation and the practitioner can be trained to use the device in a relatively short period of time.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
Frequency Asked Questions
What is Lipo-Light?
Lipo-Light is a light emitting diode (LED) system specifically designed for Professionals to contour the body by losing inches in circumference off specific body areas (waist, hips, thighs, arms, neck). Lipo-Light offers 16 pads that are strapped directly to the fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
 

What is the action mechanism behind Lipo-Light?
The light (635nm) emitted from Lipo-Light causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell. This brief change allows the fat contents to seep out from the cell into the interstitial space from where it can be processed by the lymphatic system.

What happens to the fat?
After being released, triglycerides are broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enter the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, several things may occur:

  1. Some of the free fatty acids are readily available to be used as fuel by the body during exercise.
  2. What is not consumed as energy will get to the liver where it will either be oxidized or re-processed for storage. It is unknown how much gets oxidized versus re-stored, but results suggest that fat does indeed get oxidized (no visible or measurable redistribution of fat in the treated areas)

What results can I expect?
Individuals have lost anywhere from two inches to six inches** over a course of treatments. To maximize results, three things are important:

  1. As a rule, if your sick you should not be treated. Wait until your condition has improved.  If you have a condition listed in the contraindications you should not be treated.
  2. Hydration is critical. Drink plenty of water (ideally at least half you body weight in ounces; i.e. 100lbs = 50oz) spread out throughout the day. Diuretics (coffee, alcohol, etc.) are discouraged.
  3. The lymphatic system should be mobilized. Post treatment exercise is essential. Your encouraged to be active and burn 350 calories every day during your choice of cardio exercise.

**Individual results vary and are not guaranteed.

How deep does Lipo-Light affect fat cells?
Penetration depth is 10 to 12 mm. The Lipo-Light consists of sixteen pads that each contain 28 ultra-bright diodes. Each pad has an optical output of 450mw per pad.

How is Lipo-Light different than liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure involving the mechanical removal of fat cells. By contrast, Lipo-Light is completely non-invasive and only affects fat cells temporarily. Lipo-Light does not compete with liposuction; it is simply a body shaping option available to clients who do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure.

Does Lipo-Light help with loose skin?
Anecdotal evidence suggests that clients undergoing Lipo-Light have noticed an improvement in skin tone and texture.

Does Lipo-Light improve the appearance of cellulite?
Anecdotal evidence suggests that clients undergoing Lipo-Light have noticed an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

Can Lipo-Light cause cancer?
No. Lipo-Light uses LED in the visible spectrum (635nm) to stimulate our cells to be more efficient and accelerate the rate of naturally occurring processes. There has never been any indication that it may cause cancer. However, clients with cancer should not be treated. For more information, please refer to our list of contraindications.

FDA info on LEDs
Lipo-Light is not FDA approved.  The FDA website states that "LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are different from laser diodes and are not subject to the Fedral laser product performance standard.  An ordinary source of visible light, like the sun or a light bulb, emits a mixture of invisible and visible light like waves. These waves have varying lengths and move in all directions. These differing “wavelengths” produce different types of light, such as ultraviolet, violet, blue, green, red and infrared.  Unlike ordinary light, laser light..."
