Questions and Answers

And

Q: How does Lipo-Light work?
 
A: Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that Lipo-Light stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.

Q: What are the advantages of LED over invasive processes?

A: There are major advantages against invasive processes; including no pain, instant results against up to 16 weeks recovery for liposuction, possible risk of infections with invasive surgery, price advantages, no damage to the body including fat cells as opposed to total removal of cells, blood vessels, post operative numbness, etc.

Q: What is the wave length of the LEDs?

A: Lipo-Light and Lipo-Light Pro -635nm, Fine-Light-635nm, Acu-Clear-415nm
 
Q: Is Lipo-Light covered by insurance?

A: No. Lipo-Light treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance. You can find our prices conveniently listed at the Products and Pricing page.  You also have the option of purchasing gift certificates and any of our Lipo-Light, Fine-Light, or Acu-Clear treatments safely and securely using your credit card or PayPal account.  As always, any of these products and services may be purchased, in person, at Zdilla Family Chiropractic.

Q: How many paddles does Lipo-Light have?

A: Lipo-Light has 8 paddles.  Lipo-Light Pro has 16 paddles.  Alternative laser products tend to have 2-4 paddles or do not touch the skin (which decreases efficiency).

Q: How many diodes (lights) per paddle?

A: Lipo-Light LED system has 25 medical LED lights fitted to each paddle. Lipo-Light Pro LED system has 30 medical LED lights fitted to each paddle.
(Laser therapy has far less, normally 8-12 diodes).

Q: What is the absorption rate of Lipo-Light?

A: The LED system has a far higher absorption rate as opposed to laser treatment therapy due to the refraction and strength of the beam. Typically, LED absorbs around 70% compared to laser at around 30%. This gives a much higher chance of better results in inch loss and fat reduction.

Q: Is it safe?

A: Yes. There are no known risks involved in using Lipo-Light or Lipo-Light Pro and they are considered safe alternatives to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The Lipo-Light treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scarring or downtime. During the treatment you will not feel discomfort, nor will anesthesia be used. You can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.

Treatments:

Q: Are the treatments painful? Are there any side effects?

A: There is no pain involved. The treatments are very relaxing and soothing. There are no known side effects.

Q: How many calories will a single treatment burn?

A: A single treatment would mobilize approximately 400 calories; however, tests have shown more.

Q: How many treatments can be given and when should treatments be stopped? How much rest time between a course of 8 treatments?

A: The standard program is 8 sessions, twice per week for 4 weeks. 2 treatments a week allow the blood fatty acid levels to stabilize after each treatment.  It is recommended, but not required, to take a 2 week break between each 8 sessions.  

Q: What should be worn to a treatment?

A: Treatment necessitates pads to be placed directly on the skin. Comfortable clothing such as yoga pants, shorts, and t-shirts are recommended.

Q: Do you have to exercise post treatment?

A: Yes. It is highly recommended that post treatment exercises are done to speed up the lymphatic system.

Q: How long does it take to see results?

A: Results vary depending on the body type, metabolism, and activity level. Results have been seen after the first visit.

Q: What can be done to enhance results?

A: There are numerous ways to enhance results: 
  1. Incorporate nutritional supplements designed to enhance fat metabolism and health.
  2. Diet high in quality foods. Eat sensibly and eliminate alcohol and caffeine during treatments.
  3. Drink 1/2 ounce of water per body weight pound, with a minimum of 64 ounces per day.
  4. Walk or moderate exercise 30 minutes per day throughout treatments.
  5. Keep to your Lipo-Light scheduled treatments.
  6. Massage the targeted areas after treatment to help your body’s lymphatic drainage and fat removal processes.

Q: What is Acu-Clear?

A: Acu-Clear is a safe and revolutionary skin cleansing system using the latest LED Light Therapy technology. By harnessing the power of blue LED light, Acu-Clear reduces the bacteria which cause spots (blemishes), reduces inflammation and minimizes scarring.

Q: Is the Acu-Clear mask comfortable to wear?

Q: How long are the treatments? How often can treatments be given?

A: Treatments are 20 minutes and can be given 2-3 times per week.

Q: How does Acu-Clear work?

A: When the pores of the skin become blocked or clogged, bacteria begin to grow resulting in spots. The bacteria contained in the inflamed pores can spread to the skin which aggravates the skin surface. The blue LED Light Therapy gets right down into the core of the skin’s pores, helping to cleanse the skin of the harmful bacteria that causes spots, reducing inflammation and rejuvenating the look of the skin. LED Light Therapy is a proven aid to skin cleanliness. The successful treatment of skin problems will also benefit from a good skin care regimen.

Q: Are the treatments painful? Are there any side effects?

A: No, the mask is painless. Glasses are recommended for use during facial treatments as the strong light source could cause headaches or migraines if susceptible. There are no known side effects.

A: No.  The face is required to be cleansed prior to treatments.


Q: What is Fine-Light?

A: Fine-Light is a safe and revolutionary skin rejuvenation system using the latest Red LED Light
Therapy technology.

A: Fine-Light is light, comfortable and easily worn.

Q: How long are the treatments? How often can treatments be given?

A: Treatments are 20 minutes and can be given 2-3 times per week.

Q: How does Fine-Light work?

A: Red LED light is a powerful stimulant to the skin and is an effective way to
energize the cells of the skin, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. Lack of collagen and elastin in the skin's cells can result in fine lines and wrinkles. LED Light Therapy has a direct effect on the regeneration of the skin, penetrating the top layers of the skin, energizing the skin, producing collagen and elastin, which helps to plump the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This is known as Photo Rejuvenation. Light Therapy has the desired effect of rejuvenating the skin without the need for surgery, chemicals, injections or painful procedures. Referred to as the 'No Knife Face Lift' this technology is fast becoming the preferred solution for those seeking to strip away the years. It is the safest, most affordable way to achieve radiant, younger-looking skin.

Q: Why can't you get the same effect from sunlight?

A: Sunlight also contains harmful Ultra Violet (UV) rays which damage the skin. Fine-Light bathes the skin in a pure light source that generates much needed protein and, in turn, allows the cells of the skin to regenerate, plumping the skin and increasing levels of elasticity.

Q: Are the treatments painful?  Are there any side effects?

A: Using the Fine-Light skin rejuvenation system is safe and completely non-invasive. It has been used for years in numerous medical procedures, spas, the offices of aestheticians and dermatologists around the world. It is recommended that the user wears the tinted safety glasses (similar to ones used at a tanning salon). It is also advised the user rests during the treatment.

Q: How long will it take before I see results?

A: The visible results will depend upon each individual and may be affected by: age of the user, skin condition, diet, smoking and drinking habits. The average time in which a user of Fine-Light will see tangible results is 4 to 6 weeks. For others it may be longer, but in many cases individuals will see results immediately.
