What is Lipo+Plus Multilase?
Lipo+Plus Multilase is a non-invasive, natural, pain-free and drug-free process that can reshape your body whether you are looking for general inch-loss or simply tackling that stubborn area you just can’t budge.
It is a highly-effective therapy to reduce excess fat deposits to maintain a healthy body weight. This is amazing technology, in which low-intensity laser therapy reacts with the fat cells resulting in the cell wall becoming “leaky”, and the stored fat breaking down into glycerol and fatty acids.
These products are then transported via the lymphatic system and become readily available to the body for fuel. So, in practical terms, the effect is immediate with a measurable, inch-loss change after each treatment. (Study of 500 individuals showed on average a 2.5% reduction in measurements with each treatment). However a treatment is a series (of 8 twice-weekly, for larger areas, and at least 4 for smaller areas.) Each treatment comprises blocks of 10 minutes, during which you can just relax and let the laser perform its magic.
An initial consultation will assess whether there are any medical reasons for caution with a treatment, or that may require monitoring during the course. Contra-indications include pregnancy and breast-feeding, cancer history in the last year, transplant patients and being under 18 years of age.
What to avoid during treatment
Avoiding steroids and regular anti-inflammatory medication (e.g. Nurofen, arthritis medication) during treatment course, is advisable for best results. Monitoring is necessary if you have kidney, liver or autoimmune problems, diabetes or blood pressure problems. There is no increase in blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels.
What to do after treatment
Regular exercise is important to encourage the working of the lymphatic system and to use the released energy. Immediately after each session 10 minutes of light exercise to stimulate circulation is important, as is a longer period of exercise in the following 24 hours.
Drinking plenty of water is always healthy and combining this with a healthy diet will maximize the effects of the treatment.
Frequently asked questions
Is it Painful?
No, it is completely pain-free. The effect of the laser depends on a gentle bio-chemical response, not the destruction of cells.
Is the Inch Loss Permanent?
If your energy intake and energy expended is kept in balance, the inch-loss will remain. As with every inch-loss modality, if body energy is not used up, it can be deposited as fat.
Isn’t any method of fat reduction that isn’t surgery, non-invasive?
Although they don’t make incisions, most alternative equipment-based methods of body sculpting involve the destruction of cells e.g. freezing, radio-frequency and ultrasound.
Wouldn’t it be better to get rid of the cells?
Although getting rid of fat cells might sound like a more permanent solution, in fact, it does not stop excess energy being deposited as fat. It simply means that fat may be deposited in alternative places, which can sometimes result in oddly-placed fat deposits. Also, any remaining fat cells just get filled more full of fat.
Is the machine safe?
This device has been approved by the TGA and so is classified as a medical treatment device.
