Are you familiar with the concept of “stubborn fat?” Although most commonly used to describe fat in the belly area, this term is used to describe any fat that doesn’t seem to change no matter how much you diet and exercise.
Fortunately, there’s a way to turn the tables on stubborn fat. The Lipo-Light® body sculpting system uses LED light therapy to eliminate fat cells in specific areas. When combined with exercise, it can cut inches from certain parts of the body.
In this blog, Scott B. Callahan, PA-C, of Dolce Vida Med Spa explains what Lipo-Light is and how it may be able to help you.
Why is some fat stubborn?
Your cells have two receptors inside them: alpha-2(alpha) and beta-2(beta). One of the main roles of these receptors is determining how the fat in cells is used. Cells in which alpha receptors are dominant are more likely to store fat for later use.
Cells in which beta receptors are dominant are more likely to break down and release fat for current use. So, if a cell has more alpha receptors, it can be more resistant to diet and exercise. Therefore, an area with these cells may, in fact, be more resistant to your weight loss goals.
How does Lipo-Light work?
When a Lipo-Light pad is placed on your skin, it emits a specific wavelength. This wavelength alters the walls of the targeted fat cells. This alteration allows the release of stored fat within these cells. This fat is then used for energy during exercise or is eliminated via the body’s waste system.
A Lipo-Light machine has 16 pads, which enables maximum results for each treatment you receive. The pads are held directly against your skin with a strap, and treatments typically take less than 20 minutes.
And because Lipo-Light uses LED light wavelengths, there’s no bruising, swelling, burning, or pain. It’s truly noninvasive and has essentially no side effects. It’s truly a pain-free way to slim, shape, and tone your body. A series of treatments is normally required for optimum results.
Which areas can Lipo-Light treat?
Lipo-Light can be used to treat many areas, including the following:
- Bra bulge
Lipo-Light is very effective, but it works best in conjunction with diet and exercise. Your specific course of treatment will depend on the area you wish to treat and the results you desire.
