1. What is the procedure?
My-Lipo comes equipped with 4 or
8 pads, enabling maximum results from each treatment. Depending on the area of
the body receiving treatment, it is recommended that between 2 and 4 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 My-Lipo 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
temporarily released fat, completing the inch loss process.
2. How does My-Lipo work to shrink the fat
The light, 635nm emitted from
My-Lipo causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of
the cell. This brief change allows the fat contents to seep out from the cell
into the interstitial space from where it can be processed by the lymphatic
system. After being released, triglycerides are broken down into free fatty
acids and glycerol and enter the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, some
of the free fatty acids are readily available to be used as fuel by the body
during exercise or what is not consumed as energy will get to the liver where
it will either be oxidized or re-processed for storage.
3. Is it safe?
is simple to use, hygienic, quick and effective. My-Lipo is safe because it
uses LED in the visible spectrum (635nm) to stimulate our cells to be more
efficient and accelerate the rate of naturally occurring processes. There are no known negative side effects to
this day. The My-Lipo pads do produce a warming sensation, but currently there
has never been a case described where a patient has been burned or harmed in
anyway. The safety of My-Lipo 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.
4. What kinds of results are produced?
Individuals have lost anywhere
from two inches to six inches over a course of treatments. To maximize the
chances of your clients responding, three things are important: as a rule, sick
clients should not be treated… wait until the condition has improved. Hydration
is critical, drink plenty of water (ideally at least 8 glasses of 8 oz of water)
spread out throughout the day while diuretics (coffee, alcohol, etc.) are
discouraged. The lymphatic system should be mobilized. Post treatment exercise
is essential. The client must be encouraged to be active and burn 350 calories
every day during their choice of cardio exercise. Individual results vary and
are not guaranteed.
5. What do patients do to maintain the fat
After treatments, exercise is essential to create the demand
for energy which can now be met by the temporarily released fat, completing the
inch loss process. After the recommended intensive 4 week course, the
client can follow one of two treatment paths: return for a weekly maintenance
treatment at the salon (max 2 per month) or focus on another body area for a
new intensive 4 week treatment after 2 weeks.

half way through her session, one of the paddles started to blink… why is this?
There is a safety feature within the pads which will make
them flash to release heat should they go above a set temperature
