A: Laser is an FDA approved, non-invasive system that uses laser energy to shrink the fat cells in your waist, arms, chin, tush, or thighs. The contents of the fat cells are then reabsorbed by the body through the lymphatic system; then processed by the liver and used for energy.
A: 60 minutes in total. This includes the treatment, massage, and exercise. The initial visit and final course treatment visit will take an additional 10-15 minutes to take measurements before and after each treatment.
A: Yes, it is essential that post treatment the client exercises to speed up the lymphatic system. We have a whole body vibration exercise machine that the clients will use after their treatment while still in the office.
A: We recommend that you take a good liver support supplement. Milk thistle is a good supplement to take while undergoing laser liposuction. However, Plexus has 2 supplements that may be more beneficial that milk thistle alone. These are BioClens and XFactor.
A: 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.
A: There are no risks or side effects involved in using LipoMelt. It is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The LipoMelt treatment is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring.
A: Yes, Laser liposuction is an FDA approved cold laser therapy. Cold laser technology has been safely used for years in other medical treatments, like pain management, treatment of neurological problems, scar tissue treatment and more. The only people who should NOT do this procedure are: pregnant women or those nursing, epileptic patients, patients with malignancy, patients with heart disease or with a heart pacemaker, patients with kidney (gallstone) or liver disease.
A: The standard course is 9‐18 sessions, three times per week for 3-6 weeks. We do only 3 treatments a week to allow the blood fatty acid levels to stabilize after each treatment. Further treatments can be undertaken after a 2 week break.
650nm and 880nm
A: Three separate measurements are taken on the area treated.
A: When energy is required by the body, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down the stored fat, a process called lypolysis. During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. 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. After a 20 minute 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.
