Lipo Laser Slimming Machine

 

Indications: Reduction of fat cells to targeted areas, body contouring and spot fat reduction. Common areas treated are the abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks. By positioning the laser pads on these areas, fat can be selectively broken down and eliminated.

Definition:  Lipo Laser technology is a method of for reducing unwanted fat deposits by attaching diode laser pads which emit low level laser energy over the treatment area.  

Devices:  I-Slim PRO                                                                                                                  

Frequency:  6-8 treatments. Two (2) times per week for three (3) weeks is the recommended interval amount. Each session duration is approximately twenty (20) minutes. Maintenance treatments can be performed as needed.

Candidacy: Treatment is effective on most body types and all skin types. Immediately noticeable results are shown on individuals who regularly exercise, have localized deposits of fat and are not classified as obese. Men and women can benefit from the treatments but there are a few medical conditions that would be a contraindication for treatment. A health and medical questionnaire will be provided to ensure suitability.  

Client Instructions Prior to Appointment:

  1. Be aware of any medications, skin conditions or products that you are currently using that may affect your skin or photosensitivity to light.
  2. Treatment should be avoided by those with impaired kidney/liver function, immune disorder/sensitivity, or pregnant/nursing mothers.
  3. It is recommended that prior to treatment, measurements are taken and area to be treated is observed for firmness.

What is it and how does the technology work?

Laser light travels from the diode pads through the layers of skin and reaches the fatty (subcutaneous) layer composed  of individual fat cells. As the cells absorb the laser energy they are triggered to “sweat out” the acids, glycerol and water stored within, thus reducing their size. The material emitted from the cells is absorbed by the lymphatic system and discharged via the body’s natural metabolic function.  A properly functioning lymphatic system is responsible for removing wastes from the body.

This treatment is very safe and pain-free due to the non-invasive, low-level cold laser technology. It does not impact any neighbouring skin, nerves or blood vessels in or around the treatment area.

What Clients Should Expect:

  • During Treatment: 6 diode pads will be applied to the target areas in direct contact with the skin and will emit low-level laser energy for the duration of the session. There is no pain or discomfort during or after the treatment. Clients can comfortably lay back and enjoy for approximately 20 minutes. There will be slight warming sensation and there may be a slight redness of the skin after the session is complete.
  • After Treatment: Normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. A healthy diet and exercise is an important component to the Lipo Laser treatment and a brisk walk or other form of activity following treatment is highly recommended for best results. Stay hydrated, drink 8-10 glasses of water per day.  Avoid alcohol and caffeine which can interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it. Clients will lose anywhere from ½ inch – 2 inches per treatment.
  • All patient concerns, side effects and complications should be addressed and documented.
