Our Technology

Dual Coherent wavelengths (Red & Infra-red) of light penetrate the subcutaneous tissue. Localized blood flow
heats the area stimulating cellular respiration, ATP synthesis & collagen production. Light at these
wavelengths are very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as cellulite, stretch marks, scars,
skin elasticity, collagen production, wrinkles, acne and is particularly effective in removing fat from unwanted
problem areas.

The diverse tissue and cell types in the body all have their own unique light absorption characteristics; that is,
they will only absorb light at specific wavelengths and not at others. For example, skin layers, because of their
high blood and water content, absorb red light very readily, while calcium and phosphorus absorb light of a
different wavelengths.

Super luminous LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are safe concentrated light sources used to produce the specific
wavelengths of light that provide therapeutic benefits of light therapy without adverse side effects.

THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS
• Increases blood capillary circulation and vascular activity by promoting improvement in the
metabolism of nitric oxide (NO). This facilitates improved regulation of vasodilatation and leads to the
formation of new capillaries - This in turn provides additional oxygen and nutrients to accelerate
natural tissue healing processes and eventually evokes a cascade of beneficial biochemical processes.
• Stimulates synthesis of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP)—an immediate energy source for muscle
contraction and essential in the metabolism of all cellular processes and sustaining living systems.
• Relaxes muscles, reduces nerve excitability and stimulates nerve transmission
• Reduces scar tissue and stimulates wound healing
• Increases lymphatic system activity and relieves edema and discomfort associated with swelling
• Stimulates production of collagen—the most important component of wound healing
• Increases RNA/DNA synthesis - this stimulates cellular reproduction and facilitates accelerated
replacement of damaged cells
• Increases production of endorphins and enkephelins from the brain - promoting mood elevation
• Stimulates production of adrenals— which facilitate long term resilience to stress
• Reduces inflammation and swelling in chronic conditions of arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis
• Stimulates fibroblastic activity - promoting repair of connective tissue and formation of collagen fibers

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are (LLLT) treatments safe?
A. Low light laser energy is part of the range of electromagnetic rays that are absolutely necessary for
metabolism and growth of human beings and is also part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight minus the
skin damaging UV rays, which is why NASA currently uses this type of energy in space. It is also vibration
energy, with which the human body resonates. This is the reason that it can penetrate through the skin.

Q. I don’t know much about LLLT, can you explain it to me?
A. Sunlight is a combination of visible, UV and infrared light. Red laser light is longer in wavelength than
visible light and starts just after the visible color of red. Red laser light is the safest and healthiest spectrum of
sunlight. Red laser light from the sun accounts for 70% of the heating of the Earth, the rest being caused by
visible light. It is therefore understood that a good combination of visible light and red laser light offer the
most benefits in electromagnetic heating of objects that absorb infrared such as the human body. Other forms
of heat such as fire and ceramic heaters, etc, warm a person by heating the surrounding air that touches the
person which does not penetrate deeply into the body. Red laser light heat penetrates the skin and is much
more effective. Certain red laser light wavelengths also interact with living cells increasing metabolism, energy
production, and causing more fuel (calories) to be burned.

Q. What are the benefits of (LLLT)
A. LLLT produces red and infrared (650nm – 940nm). The human cells have light sensitive chemicals called
chromophores which react to light in the 600nm – 900nm range. When stimulated by energy in this range, the
cells produce more ATP which is the energy source that powers every muscle and increases metabolism. Red
laser light also causes DNA synthesis in the fibroblasts of the cells which makes the skin more elastic and
younger looking. In addition, near-infrared light promotes cellular healing, thus reducing the recovery time
after a workout. LLLT is used without exercise while relaxing and is very effective in heating up the body. Laser
Lipo accelerates the body’s natural detoxification processes.

Q. How long has this technology been around?
A. LLLT in a similar fashion has been used in Europe and Asia since 1999. It is only now catching on in North
America.

Weight Loss
In an industry where one size fits all concepts are typical, we’ve opened the door to a new way of thinking and a
lifetime of results. We have taken a truly individualized approach by combining multiple, successful components into
a long term REAL solution. Clients safely lose on average 2 - 3 lbs per week. All of our weight loss programs are
individualized and based on our clients’ needs. We can help anyone lose weight safely and permanently regardless
of time constraints, medical conditions, lifestyle and budget. Let’s be real for once. Weight Loss Is Not Your Life.
Your Life Is Family, Work, Hobbies ect.  Weight loss just has to be incorporated into your life.

Here are some components we use in our weight loss programs:
• LLLT treatments
• Nutritional Modification, Education and Counseling
• Lifestyle Management
• Stress Reduction
• Massage
• Assistance with sleeping difficulties
• Fitness programs

(LLLT) technology for weight loss has been utilized since the early 90’s as a safe, non-invasive, painless, and effective
way to accelerate weight loss; remove unwanted fat from undesirable or unresponsive areas, tighten and rejuvenate
skin, fade stretch marks and scarring, and smooth cellulite from all regions of the body.


How it works
Low levels of laser energy supercharge your lymphatic system (body’s natural metabolism) and stimulate the fat cells to
open and release intra-cellular fat. The lymphatic system then transports the emulsified fat to be utilized as energy through the body’s natural metabolic functions and synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Once the contents of the fat cells (triglycerides, water, glycerol) are released, the cell becomes smaller.

Contouring/Spot Reduction
(LLLT)is the latest innovation in body slimming technology used to remove fat from areas that are
unresponsive to diet and exercise and reshape regions of your body very quickly Our innovative technology is
a safe, non-invasive, and painless alternative to traditional fat reduction procedures. Each session can remove
up to an inch of unwanted fat from any undesired problem area(s). Treatments are ideal for both men and
women, eliminating the fatty areas that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Most clients will see results
after their first treatment.

How it works

Subcutaneous fat (fat cells between the skin and the muscle) is what your body utilizes when it needs energy.
When the body metabolizes fat from the subcutaneous fat it will utilize the fat cells that are closest to the
muscle first. These fat cells are located the farthest from the skin. Most people rarely utilize the fat from the
cells closest to the skin. These cells are larger due to the amount of stored fat inside that is never metabolized
in the body. Concentrated laser energy safely and painlessly activates the fat cells closest to the skin to open
and stimulates the body’s metabolism to utilize the stored fat as energy. The fat that is not utilized for energy
is then eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system naturally.

How many treatments do I need?
Treatments will vary depending on several factors including, skin tone, elasticity and cellulite grading. Multiple
treatments are necessary two times per week for optimal results. Treatment times can range between twenty
to forty minutes per session. Treatment sessions will vary from client to client. During your private
consultation, our staff can give you a better idea of how many treatments you will need to achieve your
desired results.

Stretch Mark Fading

Stretch marks are caused, literally, by rapid stretching of the skin. Micro tears develop and the blood vessels
that lie under your skin show through usually creating a stretch marks that are red in color. If the body is slow
to produce enough collagen to repair the area the appearance of the stretch marks usually become darker in
color. Pregnancy and weight loss/gain are the most common reasons stretch marks develop.

How it works

Our non-surgical treatments significantly reduce and fade stretch marks and scars from all areas of the body.
LLLT technology will stimulate RNA and DNA production (skin cell renewal) rejuvenating your skin and
promotes the growth of collagen to repair the damaged area. Most clients will see an improvement after just
one treatment but will require multiple sessions to reach their desired goals.

Will I feel any pain during treatments?

No. The treatments are quick, non-surgical, non-evasive and pleasant. Clients will listen to music, facebook,
text or take a nap during treatments. Our professional staff is here to ensure that you are very comfortable
and relaxed during every treatment with us.

How many treatments do I need?

Treatment times are very short around twenty minutes and the stimulation of collagen growth will last for
several months after treatments. Multiple treatments are necessary and are recommended two times per
week for the duration of your recommended treatment schedule. Treatment sessions will vary from client to
client. During your private consultation, our staff can give you a better idea of how many treatments you will
need to achieve your desired results.

Maintenance

Once you have completed your treatment schedule we recommend you come in for touch up treatments once
a month for three months. Clients are welcome to come back as needed for any additional touch up
treatments after maintenance is complete.

Cellulite Elimination

Safely smooth and eliminate cellulite as effectively as liposuction with no needles, no pain, and no downtime.
Our treatments target the bumpy appearance of cellulite by restoring enlarged fat cells to a smaller size,
resulting in smooth, tighter skin.

How it work

Cellulite is caused from enlarged fat cells that are unresponsive to diet and exercise causing a dimpling effect.
The pulsing laser light activates the enlarged fat cells to open, allowing the contents to leave the cell and be
utilized in the body’s natural metabolism. The fat that is not utilized will then be eliminated through the
lymphatic system. The result is a smooth cellulite free area of the body.

How many treatments do I need?

Although you can see visible results in just one treatment, you’ll see optimal results after multiple short
treatments which are recommended two to three times per week for duration of your treatment schedule.
Not only will you notice a reduction in cellulite, but you’ll also see a reduction in the circumference of your
treatment area, as well as an improvement in the skin’s texture.

Treatment session needs vary from client to client, but during a consultation, our staff can give you a better
idea of how many treatment sessions you will need to achieve your desired results.

Will there be any downtime?

No. The treatments are non-surgical, non-evasive and pleasant. Our treatments are very relaxing and studies
show the effectiveness of LLLT in cellulite reduction without any of the side effects of evasive procedures.
Clients will listen to music, facebook, text or take a nap during treatments. Our professional staff is here to
make you very comfortable during each treatment with us.

Areas that can be treated

Any area of the body can be treated. The most common areas are the back of legs, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin
and neck.

Maintenance

Once you have reached your desired goal we recommend a maintenance schedule of one treatment monthly
for six months. Clients are welcome to schedule touch up treatments as needed after their maintenance
schedule is complete.
