As we age, localized fat deposits can grow resistant to diet and exercise. For these areas, LipoMelt treatments provide a safe, FDA-approved, non-invasive alternative to liposuction with no resulting bruises or scarring. By placing pads containing LED red light diodes and infrared therapy over the treatment areas, the unique light emitted heats the fat cells and allows them to seep out and be processed naturally by the body.
LipoMelt can be used on any part of the body, but is especially effective in the areas around the waist, hips, legs, thighs, and upper arms. Clients can expect to see a reduction in fat after their very first session, with best results achieved after multiple sessions over a few weeks. Some have even noticed an improvement with cellulite, skin tone, and texture!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT?
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enters the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A LIPOMELT SESSION?
During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body and you can enjoy a relaxing, painless session.
HOW LONG IS EACH SESSION?
60 minutes in total. This includes the treatment, massage, and exercise.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
You will see results from your very first session! Best results are seen after a series of sessions, and 10-20 are a good fit for most.
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW A DIET?
