Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during a LipoMelt session?
During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body as you simply enjoy a relaxing 20 minute session. Afterwards, you will put on compression garments and stand on our vibration plate for 10 minutes to speed the lymphatic drainage of the fat.
While in our Lighthouse room, you will be able to listen to whatever music you can get Alexa to play! Our clients have fun telling their virtual DJ the songs to spin! Other clients take the opportunity to enjoy a quick nap in the middle of their day. We do our best to ensure that our clients have a fun and relaxing time!
How does LipoMelt work?
The unique light emitted from LipoMelt causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body. If you want more info about it? Click here to view a PDF of the technology!
What happens to the fat?
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enter the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.
If you are anything like me, you just read that section and you still don’t feel like you got an answer! Here it is another way. The fat leaves the cell and goes into your blood stream. You body then has to process it out of your system via your lymphatics (think Liver, etc.). For a healthy person this is done quickly and easily. For a person who has some lymphatic blockage, we can help you with that though a process called cupping.
Why do you recommend liver support with this process?
The liver is the ultimate filter to remove toxins and nutrient byproducts from the body. The fast release of fat can sometimes overwhelm the liver and for this reason a high quality liver support is recommended.
What areas of the body can be treated?
The LipoMelt treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arms.
What risks or side effects are involved?
LipoMelt is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The LipoMelt treatment is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring.
All that to say, we do not do this on women who are pregnant, people undergoing cancer treatment, or people who have debilitating heart disease. All other conditions will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Do I have to follow a diet?

Do I have to exercise?
Each of your sessions should be followed by at least 10 minutes of exercise to stimulate circulation and help burn the fat that has been released.
As mentioned above, exercise and healthy living are something that we encourage regardless of whether or not you are using the Lipomelt system.

Does LipoMelt help with cellulite and loose skin?
Clients undergoing LipoMelt have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture.
We had a client recently who told us she definitely noticed a reduction in her cellulite.
What research has been done?
In the 1980’s, NASA conducted multiple studies in space, resulting in the discovery that certain wavelengths of light cause a reaction within various cell structures. These studies show that low level light can have a healing, natural and healthy influence on the human body, based on which wavelength of light is utilized. Further use in aesthetic applications have shown that red light tends to stimulate fibroblast cells which then cause collagen and elastin to form. Infrared light has been shown to stimulate circulation, which can help multiple cell structures resulting in a healing response. Of course, diet and exercise are important to lead a healthy lifestyle, while utilizing various light therapies can be an added benefit, potentially improving both appearance and well-being.
The Ultimate Light delivers multiple times more mid-600nm and near infrared light than the competition. This is due to the number of microchip components per pad and the spacing between the chips. Patients experiencing the Ultimate Light will enjoy a much deeper and complete exposure to these wavelengths of light. The session is painless; there is no heat or discomfort involved and no risk to either the patient or the operator. Safe. Totally effective.
