How does LipoSTOP® treatment help you?
LipoSTOP® treatment causes thousands of microscopic air bubbles to surround the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes and with vibration, the bubbles create enough pressure to cause the fat cells to break up instantly. The contents of the broken lipocytes are then moved through the lymphatic system to the liver and are safely metabolized and excreted from the body, assisted by drinking plenty of water both the day of treatment and on subsequent days.
How many treatments do you need?
Between 4 and 12 visits may be required. This depends on body mass and circumference size, age, hormonal balance, medications and your desired goals.
How much time inbetween visits?
It is best to schedule your appointments a week apart and no closer than three days apart. It is essential to allow your body enough time to metabolize and excrete fats and waste materials after each session. Maintenance treatments are recommended with the first four taking place one month apart and then once every four months after that to maintain your results.
How safe is LipoSTOP® Treatment?
The LipoSTOP® treatment does not interfere with adjacent structures such as blood vessels and nerves and therefore is completely safe, although for some clients there may be a little discomfort associated with the noise during the treatment.
What is the difference with Liposuction?
Because the LipoSTOP® procedure is non invasive and works with your body's natural elimination and detoxification processes, results are not as immediate as surgical liposuction. Fat is removed gently without harming the vascular system and without post-operative symptoms such as scarring and pain.
How does LipoSTOP® treatment work?
During treatment, you will experience varying degrees of high pitched sound, as ultrasound waves pass through your body and bounce harmlessly off bone and cartillage. This sound is only audible to you, not to the therapist. You will also feel warmth in the treated areas, however this should not be excessive at any time.
Are the results permanent?
Like any other treatment, LipoSTOP® non invasive Liposuction is not permanent, but it is cumulative. Essentially, the treatment is designed to destabilise and break down fat into carbohydrates and waste material. If not followed by exercise and plenty of water, the destabilised fat will reform and resettle.
Think of the process in simple terms. Fat and sound waves. If you put a tub of butter in the microwave and heat it, the butter destabilises into liquid. If you leave it to sit however, it solidifies again.
The same applies to this treatment, and that's why cardiovascular exercise and water are vital.
Cardio afterwards serves two purposes; to burn off the released carbohydrates, and to encourage the contraction and expansion of lymphatic vessels to channel out waste. Meanwhile, the water acts to thin that waste and to hasten its removal from the body through the urine.
How quick can you begin seeing results?
Noticeable improvements can usually be seen in the very first treatment. However, results vary.
How long is a session?
LipoSTOP® treatments can be completed in the span of multiple visits. A regular session is 15 minutes long. A visit can be one session or multiple sessions long. Treatment duration varies based not he body part and skin conditions.
