FAQ's

Does it hurt?

​NO, the process is totally painless. You may feel a mild warming sensation, but if anything this will calm you and put you into a deeply relaxed state. Most people find the experience to be quite pleasant.

How does it work?

Specifically calibrated red light strikes the fat cells and tricks the cells into thinking they are in a state of famine and within 8 minutes the fat cells will go into lipolysis. The fat cells then begin to expel their fatty acid and triglyceride contents (which lasts for 48-72 hours after each procedure) and then the cells shrink. Think of it like a water balloon slowly leaking out of a pin hole in the balloon (pin hole caused by red light - water balloon = fat cell - water = fat cells' contents). This is why wearing medical grade compression garments after treatment session helps yield optimal results. The fat cells are not invasively destroyed like some other procedures, but the fat cells' contents are safely and permanently drained giving a dramatically slimmer, flatter appearance to the overlying skin. The overlying skin will also be tightened and toned due to the red light increasing collagen and elastin formation. Designed to deliver results without the dangers associated with invasive body contouring treatments, BioSlim Lipo painlessly reduces fat in the tissue under the skin in your desired spot specific areas. BioSlim Lipo allows the body to safely eliminate fat while reducing inches from target areas, slimming and reshaping body while tightening and toning loose skin, cellulite, stretch marks and fine lines and wrinkles.

Where does all the fat go?

The fat is reabsorbed by the body through the lymphatic system and then processed by the liver and used for energy. The excess fat cells' contents, not used for energy, are then excreted via the stool.  Generally you may notice some change in your stool color/consistency but that is about it.

Is it safe?​​​​​​​​​​​

​Yes, there has never been any recorded side effects with our BioSlim Lipo procedures or any red light technology. However, if you are pregnant, have a chronic disease (i.e. cancer) or have liver, kidney and/or bowel disease then you should consult with your primary care physician before making an appointment.

Is it FDA approved?

​This type of this therapy was approved by the FDA in 2010 for fat removal and body contouring.

How many fat loss procedure sessions will I need?

Everyone’s body is different, but our typical client is sometimes satisfied with just 1 session. The most typical procedure regimen is 6 sessions, 1-2 times a week for 3-6 weeks, and this usually helps clients reach their initial goals.

How much fat can I expect to lose?

98% of all of our clients have lost a minimum of 2-inches on their first session. Individuals with ambitious fat loss, fitness and/or body sculpting and contouring goals have reported losses of over 25 inches and over 50 lbs. with 12 sessions of our BioSculpt full body deluxe procedure using our BioSlim Lipo program.

How often can I do the fat loss procedure?

Typically no more than 2 procedure sessions are allowed in a single week. Sometimes clients can only do 1 procedure session a week because they lose so much fat in their sessions and need time to process it out of the body. In either case, the typical regimen for fat loss is 1-2 times a week for 3-6 weeks, then 2 weeks off and repeat until you reach your desired goals. 

How long will I keep my fat loss results?

Results from our BioSlim Lipo BioSculpt typical procedure regimens last permanently with lifestyle modification because the fat cells' contents that either processed by the liver or excreted by the bowel are permanently drained. Without lifestyle modification a 1-2 session maintenance may be needed every month to every season (3-4 months).

Do some people respond better than others?

Yes. Clients who strictly follow our procedure & protocol guidelines, those with a higher metabolic rate and those with an efficient detoxification system are better able to excrete the fat cells' contents and enjoy faster, better results. However, our BioSlim Lipo complete program (detox, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals) helps make the playing field almost equal for almost everyone. Your technician will help you customize your program to help you reach the goals you desire.

Do all skin types respond?

Yes. Our BioSlim Lipo system is for all skin types and all adults over 18 years old.
