Q:

Should purchasers of this groupon expect to pay an additional $190 for the necessary compression suit after the laser procedure?

LAURA A.  asked on  Jun 7, 2013

A:

All of our products in addition to the BioSlim Lipo actual procedure are not mandatory, they just dramatically aid in processing the fat more efficiently and reshaping your body . Red Light Lipo will drain fat cells on everyone all the time as long as the person is in 1.) Good General Health, and 2.) Has no liver or kidney conditions. The liberated fat cells's contents that are drained by the Red Light Lipo have to be processed by the body, first mobilized through the lymphatic system then through the liver, kidneys and finally bowel and urinary excretion.

Q:

How many treatments are recommended to make a difference?

Joanne F.  asked on  Jun 8, 2013

A:

One session will make a difference but most individuals have goals that will require 6 sessions on average. 98% of all of our clients have lost a minimum of 2-inches on their first full-body 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 procedure using our BioSlim Lipo machine.

Q:

Is this a permanent treatment.

Herbert D.  asked on  Jun 9, 2013

A:

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 squeezing a balloon full of water. 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 surgery, BioSlim Lipo painlessly reduces fat in the tissue under the skin. BioSlim Lipo allows the body to safely eliminate fat while reducing inches from target areas, slimming and reshaping body lines while tightening and toning loose skin. Results from our BioSlim Lipo BioSculpt typical procedure regimens last permanently with lifestyle modification because the fat cells are permanently drained, but without lifestyle modification a 1-2 session maintenance may be needed every season (3-4 months).

Q:

What is this red light? Is this a form of radiation? How does the "red light" shrink the fat cells?

Dorienne P.  asked on  Jun 12, 2013

A:

Red Light is not a form of radiation or UV or laser. High Photonic Red Light Lipo technologies are all based on modulating a specific type of red light for non-surgical, non-invasive fat loss and skin rejuvenation. These technologies are built on the research of Rodrigo Neira, M.D. and Clara Ortiz-Neira, M.D., who in 2001 demonstrated that an 8mW 635nm specially calibrated red light, that was held 6 to 8 inches from the skin, could emulsify subcutaneous fat (up to 6cm deep) and break up the appearance of scar tissue and increase collegen and elastin production in the skin. Within only 8 minutes, the modulated red light tricks the mitochondria in the nucleus of the fat cell into creating a transitory pore in the cell membrane, allowing the fatty acids and triglycerides to escape into the interstitial space. The liberated fat cell contents are then drained by the lymphatic system, processed by the liver and kidneys as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification and then eventually eliminated by the bowel and in the urine over the next few days. The transitory pore in the fat cells that were treated the photon red light will remain open for about 48-72 hours after each session, so users not only see instant fat loss and skin rejuvenation benefits but they will also see prolonged benefits during this window of time after each session. Red Light therapy has been used in safely in hospitals for over 50 years with no reported adverse events. This red light lipo technology has also never shown any recorded side effects nor do clients experience any discomfort during the sessions.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

Just had brazillian butt lift with lipo/contouring to flanks, lower back and bra roll about 6 weeks ago. My skin seems a little loose around the area where it was lipoed in my lower back (I understand that there is a tightening effect with this form of lipo) and there is still some fat there that I feel needs to be removed. When is it safe for me to have this procedure done. I would like more fat off my lower back and stomach.

Tremicka B.  asked on  Jun 13, 2013

A:

BioSlim Lipo non-invasive red light therapy greatly compliments cosmetic surgical procedures. Not only will BioSlim Lipo procedure sessions help with localized fat reduction in problem areas that could not be addressed completely, it will help smooth out and tighten the skin areas around the surgical incisions. 6 weeks post-op is the ideally time period needed before you can do our BioSlim Lipo procedures. Please contact us at info@americanphotonlipo.com to discuss your specific post-op goals with one of our clinic directors.

Q:

I lost weight and now have excess skin around my abdomen. I exercise regularly, eat healthy, and am at a healthy weight. Will this procedure work to tighten my loose skin?

Tricia R.  asked on  Jun 13, 2013

A:

The BioSlim Lipo technology not only allows for fat loss, but it also causes collagen and elastin formation which will tighten up the skin. Please email us at info@americanphotonlipo.com and a clinic director can discuss your specific goals.

Q:

I recently had I Lipo procedure done. I do not see any difference in Abs at all. I was diligent in excercising after each session(2 aweek) for 6weeks. I want to know if this is legit and would be worth my $$.

mary V.  asked on  Jun 12, 2013

A:

Most people that were not responsive to other non-invasive lipo procedures (see our comparison chart on our homepage at www.americanphotonlipo.com) will respond to the BioSlim Lipo procedure session on their first visit.

Q:

Can i just use this voucher to only target my abdominal and R& L oblique ( a.k.a Lovehandles) ? I don't want it on thighs or Buttocks area. Is it possible for you to customize as per the customer requirement ?

Rajvir S.  asked on  Jun 12, 2013

A:

In regards to targeting the waist-buster session specifically on the abdominal region and R & L Obliques, yes, that is possible to target more on those areas than on the upper thighs and/or buttocks region for each individual client as all areas are still around the waist region. No other regions besides the waist region (front stomach - lower back - obliques - upper thighs/buttocks) are allowed to be targeted for the waist-buster procedure...if you need other regions targeted in addition to the waist, the full-body or full-body deluxe will be the best option.

Q:
