BODY CONTOURING FAQ's

 

Laser Lipo Technology

The Lipo Laser utilizes the latest low level/cold laser technology to reduce girth and fat over almost all areas of the body without surgery, downtime or redness. A typical 40-minute waistline treatment can reduce an individual by ½ to ¾ of an inch while a full protocol of eight treatments usually results in multiple inch loss.

Is it painful and safe?

Yes it is completely safe and non invasive. Clients feel no pain except maybe some warmth. Laser Lipo technology has been studied for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes. FDA approved for pain and inflammation, this is an innovative technology for fat loss.

How many sessions are needed?

2 sessions per week for 8 times per course. We do not advise more than 2 sessions per week as it is it can cause too much strain on the body to remove all the released fat at once. Any fat that cannot be metabolized by the body would then be restored resulting in minimum effect.

How does the fat eliminate the body?

The released fat is used by the body as a source of energy. By avoiding fatty foods within 48 hours after treatment the body will use the released fat as energy rather than the food resulting in the weight staying off.

How long does a session take?

For skin types 1-3 treatment session can be from 20 minutes – 60 minutes maximum. The longer the treatment the better the result. However if combining with cavitation then the recommended time would be 40 minutes lipo followed by 20 minutes cavitation.

Skin Types 4-5 We recommend 20 minutes maximum for laser lipo as it can cause hyperpigmentation if left on the skin for too long and to make up the remaining treatment time with cavitation between 20-40 minutes.

How much fat is expected to be lost in 1 session?

This depends on the individual. For example you can lose anything between 3-10cm along your waist line (per session)

Cryolipolysis/Fat Freeze

“Cryo Lipo” is a portmanteau of “cryogenic” and “lipolysis”. Generically the process can also be known as “Fat Freezing”.

Cryo Lipo is a non-surgical procedure treatment used to destroy fat cells. Its principle relies on controlled cooling to near sub-zero temperatures for non-invasive localised reduction of fat deposits in order to reshape body contours.

What is Fat Freeze?

Cryo Lipo known as Fat Freeze is a non-invasive treatment used to reduce unwanted fat by using near sub zero temperatures to kill the fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues and nerves.

How does it work?

The Cryo handle is applied to the treatment area targeted for fat loss. The handle uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target fat cells and freeze them. This procedure is known as apoptosis (controlled cell death) and is gradually eliminated from the body through the body’s natural waste disposal system.

When fat cells are subjected to being cooled below body temperature the freezing causes the fat cells to die followed by a local inflammatory response. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold conditions, the body’s usual response is to restrict circulation to keep the core of the body at the correct temperature. Cryo Lipo makes use of a powerful vacuum which adds to the inflammatory response by drawing blood up to the surface layers of the skin killing the cells.

Is it painful and safe?

During the procedure clients remain comfortable and can resume back to work immediately after. Cryo Lipo is completely safe and non invasive. It technology has been medically proven and there is no downtime following the treatment.

How many sessions are needed?

One session is sufficient for most people, for most areas. Cryo has the advantage of not usually requiring a course of treatment. Depending on the thickness of the fat and your client’s personal goals, fat freezing may be repeated in the same area a second time, but is not always a necessary. If you choose that you would like a further reduction in the same area, preferable waiting time between sessions is approx 2 months. This is to give enough time to measure the effectiveness of the initial treatment. Clinical trial data has shown for most people, a 2nd treatment within about 2 months of the first does lead to greater reduction.

How is the fat eliminated from the body?

The fat will gradually leave the body through the lymphatic system and this can take up to 30 days to for the body to remove. The results are not instantly seen, as the body has to work to remove the frozen fat cells.

How long does a session take?

A typical treatment takes 25 minutes maximum per area (Treatment time vary slightly depending on machine model/area). We advise the client to wait 20-30 days before they embark on a second session. This is to ensure they see the results from the first session and the body has time to remove the frozen fat cells.

How much fat is expected to be lost in 1 session?

A 20% – 30% reduction of body fat is the expected removal in one session.

Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasound-Cavitation Body Shaping is an aesthetic treatment to converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own lymphatic system.
Cavitation is an excellent treatment for customers that want to reshape the body to achieve cellulite reduction and fat loss for areas with localized fat such as:
• Thighs,
• Abdomen,
• Flanks,
• Buttocks

Is ultrasound cavitation painful and safe?

Yes, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable. This treatment is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia – it’s non-invasive and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.

 

Fat is a solid substance; How can it be eliminated through the urine?

Because ultrasound cavitation causes the fat cells to turn to liquid (emulsification) this makes it easier to leave the body through the lymphatic and urinary system.

How many sessions are needed?

2 sessions per week 8 per course per area. Any more than this (per week) and it would cause too much stress on the body to eliminate the fat.

How long is a session?

Depending on the size of the area a typical treatment would take between 10-40 minutes.

Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening allows deep controlled penetration of radiofrequency energy and treats skin tightening and collagen production by:
1. Tightening the underlying tissues, which in turn causes a production of new collagen and pushes out any wrinkles
2. increased blood circulation to the area to heal and repair the area

It generally tightens, smoothes and re-contours your skin from the inside out, which also rejuvenates your skin’s firmness and texture. This heat subsequently generates a focused wound healing response that can take up to 4 months to complete, that realigns and regenerates collagen in your skin to replace aging, sagging skin with fresher, younger skin (a form of Collagen induction therapy).

Is it painful and how safe is it?

Yes 100% safe, radiofrequency is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable. This treatment is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia – it’s non-invasive and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.

 

How many sessions are needed?

2 sessions are needed per week. 8 sessions for maximum results.

How long is a session?

The treatment time will vary depending on the treatment area however a full face would usually take 20 minutes, larger areas up to 30 minutes.
