The Lipo Shot is an injectable, biocompatible, and biodegradable solution used to inject directly into the problem fat areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
The solution is injected directly into localized areas of fat such as your lower stomach pouch, flanks, thighs, or arms. An ultrasound cavitation device may be used to assist in the dissipation of the solution throughout the localized fat deposits. In just a few minutes the solution liquifies the fat, destroying it permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.
Yes, it works for men and women alike. Many of our clients find this as an easy, risk-free and affordable non-surgical solution to get rid of belly, “love handles” and chest fat pockets or “man boobs”.
This treatment is ideal for clients who are overweight with stubborn, localized fatty deposits which appear resistant to diet and physical activity. It is suitable for patients who do not want the more invasive liposuction or laser lipo treatments, who do not have large amounts of fat to remove and who are over 18 years and under 60 years of age. The treatment is not suitable for pregnant or lactating women or those with a pathological condition.
For safety reasons, all clients are given a full consultation to ensure they are suitable for the treatment. Typical contraindications to the treatment include those with a history of anaphylaxis, severe allergies, severe physical illness, autoimmune disease, as well as someone who are pregnant or breastfeeding or anyone under the age of 18.
No. The Lipo Shot is a body sculpting and skin tightening procedure. It is not a weight loss treatment. It is a great way for reducing fat in specific areas of the body or face. If you have questions about a weight loss solution, ask us about our weight loss treatments.
The number of Lipo Shot treatments required varies depending on the size of the fatty deposit being treated. Generally, 1 to 3 treatments are needed for small areas such as the chin and 2 to 8 sessions for larger areas such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. Repeat sessions should be spaced out at four to six weekly intervals and clients should expect results to appear approximately three to six weeks after the initial treatment.
Our treatments are combined with Ultrasound Cavitation Therapy. This causes the solution to be dispersed faster in the targeted area and the treatment effects are maximized.
It is encouraged to gentle massage the area treated every day for five to ten minutes in order to fully disperse the liquid solution. Doing light or medium cardio will help with the breakdown of the fatty tissue. In addition, clients should drink at least one gallon of water per day to flush out the toxins and fatty deposits. Avoid strenuous exercise on treated body part for the first few days.
Do not apply any cosmetics onto the treated areas within a 12 hour period and avoid all direct sources of heat and radiation (sunlight, UV-radiation, sauna etc.).
Yes. The results you see will be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, watch your diet and stay active.
