Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during a LipoMelt treatment?
During the treatment, your will be lying on your back, on a treatment table.  Special pads will be positioned in strategic places on the body and you simply enjoy a relaxing 20-minute treatment.

How does LipoMelt work?
The unique light emitted from LipoMelt causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body.

What happens to the fat?
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enters the lymphatic system.  Once there, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.

Why should I take liver support?
The liver is the ultimate filter to remove toxins and nutrient by-products from the body.  The fast release of fat can sometimes overwhelm the liver and for this reason a high-quality liver support is recommended.

Do some people respond better than others?
Yes. Those with a higher metabolic rate are better able to excrete the fat cell contents and enjoy better results. However, the technology works for people of all ages and skin types.

What areas of the body can be treated?
The LipoMelt therapy can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arms.

Is it safe?
Completely non-invasive, red light technologies have never shown any recorded side effects and clients do not experience any discomfort during the treatments. Some people ask if the light is too bright. The red-light modulator is not as bright on your skin as walking into the midday sun and does not include dangerous UV rays, like the sun.

What risks or side effects are involved?
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 therapy is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring.

Do I have to follow a diet?
No changes are required...but you can expect better results if you reduce your caloric intake somewhat and increase water consumption to 8-10 glasses a day.  Meanwhile, reducing alcohol consumption will help the liver.

Why is whole body vibration recommended after each session.
It has been shown that the up and down vibrational movement of these devices result in much better lymphatic drainage.

Does LipoMelt help with cellulite and loose skin?
Clients undergoing LipoMelt have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture.

What research has been done?
LipoMelt is based on the pioneering cold light research of NASA and leading clinicians that started over 40 years ago.

NASA conducted multiple studies in space, resulting in the discovery that certain wavelengths of light cause a reaction within various cell structures. These studies show that low level light can have a healing, natural and healthy influence on the human body, based on which wavelength of light is utilized. Further use in aesthetic applications have shown that red light tends to stimulate fibroblast cells which then cause collagen and elastin to form.  Infrared light has been shown to stimulate circulation, which can help multiple cell structures resulting in a healing response. Of course, diet and exercise are important to leading a healthy lifestyle, while utilizing various light therapies can be an added benefit, potentially improving both appearance and well-being.

Is LipoMelt Fat Reduction for everyone?
 It should not be used by pregnant women, individuals with active cancer or people with cirrhosis of the liver. When fat cells are emptied, the fatty acids and triglycerides are processed by the liver to be voided from the body. Accordingly, individuals with compromised liver function should not receive LipoMelt.

If I use the facemask, will I lose fat in my face?
The face does not have a drainage system to release the fat.
