How it Works?
Lipo-Light can deliver effective results in just one treatment, but a series of treatments is best.
Lipo Light safely penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the fat cells. This stimulation opens the cell walls, breaking down the contents, allowing the fat to escape. Fat content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be “burned off” during a period of post-treatment exercise.
Through exercise and stimulating your lymphatic system, it increases your metabolism to metabolize this fat. This is NOT a surgical procedure. No downtime. No pain.
Lipo-Light can deliver effective results in just one treatment; however, sustained results take place when continued LED Light Therapy is used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regime.
Why is it so Great?
The best part about the Lipo-Light is there is no bruising, swelling, burning, pain or anesthesia required; essentially NO SIDE EFFECTS!
Once the fat leaves the fat cells, from the Lipo treatment, it is transported as free fatty acids to the lymphatic system to be used as energy.
Visible results appear immediately and will improve over time. The best part is there is NO PAIN and NO DOWNTIME. In fact, lots of patients describe it as “pleasurable as a hot stone massage.”
Another benefit you can get from Lipo-Light is that it can boost collagen due to heat. Lipo-Light, in point of fact, assists in sculpting the body in making the skin firm. The process aids in renewed collagen to the treated area.
Why is it so great? See for yourself!

Light Lipo sessions have never been linked to health problems in healthy individuals.
Is there any other factors that Lipo-Light is not suitable for?
Lipo-Light may not be as effective for men if they have very hard belly fat cells that have been stored for many years. Also, if you have a BMI of less than 18.5, you would be classed as underweight and your level of body fat would be too low for Lipo-Light treatment.
We do not recommend sessions while menstruating, especially on the abdomen areas.
What do I need to do before and after my treatment?
Do not drink tea, coffee or alcohol before or after treatment and drink plenty of water after treatment. Do not eat for at least 2 hours before or after treatment.
In order for the released fat to be burned off and not re-stored in the body, it is essential that patients are able to exercise for 30 minutes following each treatment.
How long do treatments last?
Treatments take 30 minutes (20 minute Lipo-Light followed by 10 minute whole body vibration exercise). However, the first appointment will be longer to allow for completion of medical forms and measuring.
How many treatments will I need?
Results can usually be seen after one treatment. However, for maximum results, a course of treatments, usually taken twice per week, will be recommended based on Body Mass Index (BMI) or fat percentage.
BMI or fat % of 10-18.5 requires 6 treatments
BMI or fat % of 18.5-24.9 requires 8 treatments
BMI or fat % of 25-30 requires 12 treatments
BMI or fat % of over 30 requires 16 treatments
What should you wear when coming in for sessions?
Street clothes are fine. However we recommend that you come prepared for the 10 minutes of whole body vibration exercise – by wearing flat shoes, socks or are willing to exercise without shoes. Spanx are also recommended.
Will it work on me?
Only 3% of people treated have shown minimal results – you can lose up to 3-9 inches but results may vary. Treatments may not be effective if alcohol is consumed during course of treatments.
Are there any risks involved and does it hurt?
There are no risks and it does not hurt.
Is it effective after having a child?
Lipo-Light is very effective on new moms who are not breastfeeding.
What are the advantages over invasive surgical liposuction procedures?
There are major advantages against invasive processes; including no pain vs. severe pain, instant results vs. up to 16 weeks recovery for liposuction, possible risk of infections with invasive surgery. Price advantages, no damage to body including fat cells as opposed to total removal of cells, blood vessels etc. Post operative numbness etc.
Is maintenance required?
This is optional dependant on your size and the results achieved. The results are permanent (if maintaining healthy diet and exercise) but many patients like to have maintenance sessions every month or so.
How long before I see results?
The inch loss can be seen immediately but further inch loss can occur during the day.
What does it feel like?
The LED pads get warm during the treatment. Most patients find it a very relaxing and soothing experience.
What areas can be treated?
Neck, abdomen, lovehandles, back, breast, saddlebags, inner thighs, knees – virtually anywhere you have excess fat!
