Lipo-Light Body Sculpting
Lipo-Light is the latest body shaping system for Professionals. Our top of the range 16 pad system offers the quickest and best way of controlling body shape using Light Therapy plus exercise.
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 in the region of 2 to 6 cm* from around the 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.
Lipo-Light uses photobiomodulation to stimulate the adipose cells, releasing fatty acids and breaking them down into glycerol molecules. Combined with exercise Lipo-Light will result in targeted inch loss.
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 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.
As the top of the range our LipoLight 16 comes equipped with 16 pads, enabling maximum results from each treatment. Depending on the area of the body receiving treatment, it is recommended that between 4 and 8 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 LipoLight is two per week, thus completing a full inch loss 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, the client can follow one of 2 treatment paths:
- Return for a weekly maintenance treatment at the salon (max 2 per month).
- Focus on another body area for a new intensive 4 week treatment after 2 weeks.
LipoLight 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.
LipoLight 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.
The Latest Non-Invasive Aesthetic Breakthroughs
Dima Ali, M.D. Your Health Magazine
WellMedica is privileged to be the first aesthetic practice to exclusively introduce two new technologies to the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area. The LIPOLIGHT is the very first LED non-invasive body contouring system.
It consists of pads that are placed directly on the skin for 20 minutes that emit a specific wavelength of light (635nm) that causes fat cells to essentially "collapse." The VENUS FREEZE is the first multipolar radiofrequency and magnetic pulsing device to stimulate the production of collagen by simultaneous thermal and non-thermal mechanisms.
Light therapy is not new. It’s been used for many ailments ranging from chronic pain to wound healing to hair growth. What is new is light being used to target fat cells. After adipose cells were exposed to a specific wavelength, 99% of the fat was released from the cells through a "pore" in the cell membrane. The result? Simply put: inch loss. Impressive spot reduction anywhere on the body including the arms, back, bra bulge, saddlebags, thighs, abdomen, even the breasts – anywhere there is excessive, unwanted fat deposits.
The best part about the LipoLight is there is no bruising, swelling, burning, pain or anesthesia required; essentially NO SIDE EFFECTS!
So what happens to the fat? Once the fat leaves the fat cells, it is transported as free fatty acids to the lymphatic system to be used as energy.
Likewise, radio frequency is not new. However, the Venus Freeze has both captured that technology and combined it synergistically with magnetic pulsing to deliver a pain free way to redefine the jaw line, improve skin laxity, tighten the skin under the arms, even improve the appearance of cellulite considerably.
Visible results appear immediately and will improve over time. The best part is there is NO PAIN and NO DOWNTIME. In fact our patients describe it as "pleasurable as a hot stone massage." Both of these non-invasive technologies have excellent patient outcomes and are great ways to stay looking young naturally. Sounds too good to be true?
