LipoPlus Laser Therapy - An Alternative to Invasive Liposuction
Reviewed by Dr. Ying Min Li
Summer is just around the corner, which for a lot of people, means feeling self-conscious about common problem areas on their body. Summer’s approach can often encourage people to take up restrictive fad diets that may help with short-term weight loss, but these diets are unsustainable, leading people to give up and in turn, return to their previous weight. Some people turn to cosmetic surgery to achieve their goal weight, relying on invasive liposuction and plastic surgery to remove fat deposits, but now there is an easier way!
LipoPlus is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative to liposuction, which produces similar results without the pain and downtime that follow traditional liposuction procedures.
It is safe, quick and painless making it a fantastic natural treatment option to reduce stubborn localised fat, re-scupt the body and remove cellulite.
Based on medical standard low-level laser technology developed in the UK, LipoPlus works by using lasers to target diet and exercise resistant fat deposits, causing the cells to release built up fluids, fat, water retention and toxins. The adipose cells in the body, commonly known as fat cells, are sensitive to particular wavelengths of red laser light delivered at a particular energy density (that does not cause damage or thermal effect), which triggers an enzyme reaction to help breakdown the triglyceride cell contents and allow the fatty acids to pass more easily through the cell walls and into the lymphatic system where they can be readily available for use by the body. This triggers a natural reaction – as though the body is calling upon the fat cells to use as energy. Once the triglyceride contents have been released, the fat cells are smaller, resulting in an immediate 'inch-loss' effect, even after just one treatment. An additional benefit is the restoration of the collagen function, which results in an overall smoothed look and reduces the appearance of cellulite.
Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, LipoPlus does not destroy the fat cells (which play a vital role in the body’s overall functioning from hormone regulation to immunity), it simply reduces their size by releasing the built up fat and toxins from inside the cells causing the ‘inch-loss’ effect. Another notable difference is that after a LipoPlus treatment there is no downtime. In fact, clients are encouraged to undertake a short exercise session in order to boost their circulation and enable metabolisation of the released fat so that it can be processed by the lymphatic system and converted to energy which the body will use as fuel. Without this circulation boost, the treatment may not be as effective, allowing the released fats to return to the fat cells and be stored once more.
LipoPlus can be effective in treating a number of common problem areas including:
- The Waist
- Excess Fat Around the Pectorals for Men
Each LipoPlus treatment program is individually tailored to the needs of each client to ensure a full understanding of their wishes and any medical problems of concern. A practitioner may also take before and after photos to help the client track their progress, particularly if a client requires a number of sessions to achieve the desired results. A course of around eight to ten treatments is usually recommended, consisting of two treatments per week, each followed by a short exercise session. It is important to note that a healthy lifestyle of nutrition and physical exercise will help to achieve the maximum long-term results.
LipoPlus is a fantastic, drug-free, painless and non-invasive option for both men and women who wish to re-sculpt their bodies and reduce their stubborn fat deposits and problem areas. Whether you are looking to for general fat-loss or to target an area that you can’t seem to budge, a series of LipoPlus treatments may be helpful to help you to increase your confidence and look & feel your best, this summer and beyond!
