Lipo Laser Treatment – a non-invasive solution
The HenCo Lipo Laser emits low level of laser energy which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them through channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy.
The process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when it needs to use stored energy reserves, thus the lip laser does not create any unnatural reaction in the body, nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and nerves.
A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.
Independent clinical studies shows that in some cases, the results are comparable to liposuction. After a course of treatments, ultrasound images have shown a 30% reduction in the fat layer. Additional treatments like RF can improve results further. Results can usually be seen immediately.
Safe and painless
How often will I need to come?
A course of approx.10-12 treatments is recommended over a period of 5-6 weeks. This may vary depending on the individual. Laser Lipo can target fat reduction in specific problem areas. By positioning the laser pads on the chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs, fat can be broken down and removed from that area.
Best results are achieved in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
What do I need to know?
To ensure best results:
No coffee prior to treatment
Drink plenty of water after treatment
Make sure you exercise immediately after treatment
Alcoholic and high sugar content beverages should be avoided before and after treatments
Wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to area being treated
Allow approx. 30-40 mins per treatment
Laser Lipo is NOT suitable for:
Anyone with a pacemaker
Cancer or history of cancer
High blood pressure
Thyroid gland dysfunctions
Compromised immune system
Photosensitivity to sun exposure
What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Therapeutic ultrasounds have been used in medicine for decades for pregnancy and physiotherapy.
High intensity ultrasound is quite different. It is a very high energy – so high in fact that it can explode fat cells by making them vibrate so much that they collapse. The fat released and cellular residues are then naturally processed by the body (liver and lymphatic systems) and eliminated. Treatments last for about 20 minutes depending not he thickness of the fat layer.
Will it hurt?
Most people find the treatment painless. However,t here may be a slight discomfort due tot he bussing noise emitted from the machine. This disappears as soon as you are no longer in contact with he hand piece. there may be some warmth during the treatment and you may experience some redness and excessive thirst, All of this should be resolved by drinking water.
What areas are treated?
The tummy, arms, thighs, bottom, love handles, back and beneath the buttocks are the usual areas treated.
What is Radio Frequency (R.F.)?
Radio Frequency is when electricity is used over a certain frequency to create a deep warmth in the tissue. The temperature achieved (60 degrees) is an internal heat you can sense by touching the treated area. RF will help tighten and contract collagen within the skin while encouraging new collagen production. It is one of the best treatments for face and body-shaping.
Will it hurt?
The skin in contact wiht the RF tip is not directly affected. a deep warmth can be felt and the skin may appear red for about 30 minutes after treatment.
