For many people, losing weight can rightly be equated to a battle. They exercise, eat a special diet, watch a few pounds fall off, and then relapse into their old habits and put on all of the weight they lost, plus a few additional pounds.
A relatively new advancement in technology is providing those interested in shedding a few pounds with another weapon they can use in their arsenal. Within the past decade, the FDA approved the use of LED lights, also known as Lipo-Light, to remove unwanted fat without a patient needing to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction.
Practitioners warn patients that light therapy for weight loss is not a miracle cure. They are not going to miraculously lose 20 or 30 pounds after the procedure. However, what the procedure does is present an alternative to liposuction.
How Does the Lipo-Light Procedure Work?
LED lights will cause the fat cell to liquefy on the inside. The inside contents of the cell will be dispersed through a hole in the cell. It will travel through the body, be collected by the lymphatic system, and then the lymphatic system will flush the fat out of the body in the same way that it removes other forms of waste.
To get the best results from treatment, a patient will have to exercise to burn at least 350 calories. This helps the body to flush the fat out.
It may also be recommended that a patient follows a low-fat cleanse diet for a short period of time after the procedure.
Patients who get the best results are those who have between 8 to 10 sessions performed. A single treatment can burn around 400 calories.
The majority of patients who have used the procedure are happy with the results. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are some who were disappointed with the results.
In the majority of cases, the disappointment is caused by overzealous expectations for what this procedure can do. Its primary purpose is to change the contours of a person’s body. For some people, the weight loss and changing shape are dramatic. This will depend primarily on a person’s body type.
