Lipo-Ex™

Ever WISH you could IRON your body? Iron away the cellulite, tighten your skin and melt the fat underneath? Lipo-Ex does just that!


Procedure:
RFAL (Radio frequency assisted lipoplasty) is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no anesthesia/non-painful process that gets similar results to liposuction with less cost and smoother results. It utilizes ionic friction to generate heat in fat cells causing them to release their contents to as deep as 5 inches. It requires a series of treatments that last 30 minutes to an hour. Usually 8 to 10 treatments are needed, or until desired results.

Technology:
Radio frequency ablation has been used for many years in the medical community and has proven safety with no tissue destruction. It has been used in aesthetics for several years for skin tightening and firming and cellulite reduction, but has evolved to be less painful and have deeper penetration which even affects visceral fat that liposuction cannot reach (fat that is deep in the abdomen and is associated with adverse health risks).

Applications:
On the body you can use it on problem areas like your arms, love-handles, butt/thighs and the abdomen.

For the face it has wonderful results for firming and tightening skin, reducing deep wrinkles and ridding yourself of those under eye fat pads/bags and reducing your sagging chin/waddle. It has been referred to as the non-surgical facelift.

What to Expect:
In a Clinical Trial done over a 5 week period (8 treatments lasting 1 hour each), with no change in diet or exercise, patients lost an average of 10 lbs. and 2 - 5 inches (measuring each leg, or at two sites around the abdomen). It feels like a hot stone massage or the temperature of a hot tub (108 degrees). Most people find it pleasurable. You will need to refrain from alcohol to get optimum results due to the lymphatic and liver elimination routes of the fat breakdown products. Before and after pictures, and measurements are taken, and your weight is monitored at each session. There is no down time.

Contraindications:
Pacemaker, liver disease, pregnancy, metal implants in area to be treated, prior hx/o cancer or lymphatic cancer (need to discuss with treating physician), uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes

Why Lipo-Ex™ is the Best Choice:
It is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for body contouring, skin tightening, long-term cellulite reduction and fat removal that addresses those areas that hard to change even with diet and exercise. It is the best technology for people who have already had liposuction and want to smooth out the uneven appearance that can occur. With an economic climate urging us to watch our budgets, a tendency to keep our social and business calendars full, and the constantly evolving repertoire of effective non-surgical methods on the map - it just makes sense.
