FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What exactly is Lipo Technology?
We use technology every day, so doesn’t it make sense that we can use technology to shrink stubborn fat?
Shapesculpt Slimming and Wellness uses safe, painless, and completely non-invasive LED based technology that can spot reduce troubled areas and provide aesthetic body contouring to shape, tone and slim.
Our clients range from ages 18-92 and are both men and women. They have found hard to reduce trouble spots, such as love handles, tummy bulge, saddlebags, underarms, inner thighs and more – are significantly reduced within a matter of weeks without breaking a sweat in a comfortable spa-like setting!
Clients can optimize their results through simple nutrition changes and physical activity after their session, even if it’s a brisk 30 minute walk.
How does light work to shrink the fat cells?
Light energy emitted by the diffused light safely penetrates the patient’s skin. At specific frequencies, coherence and power settings, fat cells absorb the electromagnetic energy from the light.
When enough energy is absorbed, transitory (short-lived) pores form on the surface of the fat cells. Water, glycerol and free fatty acids are broken down and released through the body’s natural cleansing.
As a result, the fat cells are smaller which results in inch loss, fat loss and often a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The light also stimulates fibroblasts, strengthening the collagen and elastin fibers to tone and tighten your skin. So there’s more benefit than just shrinking inches! Your skin may see nice improvements as well!
Is it safe?
Absolutely. This is completely non-invasive and clients feel nothing but warmth. The devices low-level light technology has been studied and used for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes. This is non-invasive, no pain and produces only positive results – and is even beneficial to your overall health.
How long does it stay off?
We expect your results to be permanent—but that is completely up to you! No matter what people do, if they don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle, no fat will ever stay off. This is no different, but it can be permanent and has been permanent for many of our clients. To maintain weight loss, there is only one way—no matter what you do or don’t do. Keep living a healthy lifestyle. We will help you get on that path and teach you a few simple tips along the way!
Where does the fat go?
The fat gets burned as energy in the body, or normal metabolic processing—just like when you exercise and release fat. That’s why we encourage clients to go for a brisk walk or do some sort of physical activity to increase success.
What about diet and exercise?
Losing fat is not just about diet and exercise. It is about toxins, caffeine, stress, poor sleep, pain, overeating, under eating, wrong kind of exercise, wrong kind of diet and other lifestyle factors. People can eat less and exercise more, and still not lose weight. Frustrating, right?
That is where Shapesculpt Slimming and Wellness comes in—helping people who have tried, and tried but just cannot seem to produce results. Shapesculpt helps anyone produce results with Lipo Technology and a few simple lifestyle changes. This is very doable by anyone of any age!
Some people can do all of the right things, while mostly healthy and fit and still have that one stubborn problem area. That’s where the technology from Lipo Technology can spot reduce, and we guarantee 3-9 inches in 45 days!
How often do I need to come to the Shapesculpt office?
Clients do a series of brief 20-minute sessions twice or three times a week until their goals are achieved. Relax in a comfortable position, while a certified technician targets the technology on your stubborn area(s). Then lay back and relax.
How quickly will I see results?
Many clients see measurable results after their first few sessions, but most people need to come much more than a few times. The number of sessions is determined according to a client’s individual needs.
Are you certified?
Yes. Our entire staff is certified in using the device and all aspects of the process.
Is this covered by insurance?
It is not covered by insurance. Some Lipo Technology centers are set up to accept financing. All centers can help refer you to a trusted company for a no-interest or low-interest loan. But most clients find our services affordable for what we do and they pay with cash, check or credit card.
Are there any conditions that would preclude my treatment at Shapesculpt Slimming & Wellness?
People with the following conditions are not suitable for treatment:
Pregnancy/trying to get pregnant
Heart Disease (not under the control of a physician)
Autoimmune Diseases (not under the control of a physician)
Thyroid Problems (not under the control of a physician)
An additional list relating to specific medications and physical conditions is reviewed during your consultation.
How much does this cost?
The number of sessions varies from person to person. How many inches you want to lose and how quickly you want to do that depends on different factors. So, we must meet you and go over some basic health history, what you’ve tried in the past, and physically see the areas you want to tackle.
This is the fastest way to reduce inches. Clients find our services very reasonable for the value they get– and how FAST the results happen.
Not everyone is accepted by Shapesculpt Slimming and Wellness. So come see us in person and let us get to know you!
(We can say this is significantly less expensive than a fat reduction surgery like liposuction, but it’s not as inexpensive as getting your nails done.)
