The vibrating platform mainly provides exercises to shape your legs and glutes, but also offers a variety of ways to use the machine to work on different parts of your body. In just a 10-minute workout, you can begin to feel the results.
Vibration at a certain frequency will stimulate the muscle spindle structures to contract to increase muscle tone and strength. Essentially, when applying vibration to a workout, it makes the muscle contract more powerfully.
Some of our customer at Universal Laser Center commonly confused Lipolysis with Mesotherapy, which is a different type of treatment. Both are used to melt fat, but Lipolysis targets deeper layers in the skin. Mesotherapy is a method to develop the surface of the skin, to smoothen the appearance of cellulite and to improve the texture of the skin, and may also be used to supplement lipolysis procedures. Mesotherapy involves the injection of vitamins, minerals and different drugs two to four millimeters from the surface of the skin whereas lipolysis injections are made deep into the fat tissue to disband the fat.
Lipolysis is a method of softening small to medium unwanted localized areas of fat that are not affected by diet or exercise. Lipolysis treatments are the most cost effective, non surgical, aesthetic, fat decreasing treatments currently existing. Small injections of a natural medicine are administered locally.
How does Lipolysis work?
Through the injection of the active substance called Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) directly into the subcutaneous tissue, local fat deposits will be destroyed, allowing the fat that is being stored in the cell to get released, resulting in a decrease of the body circumference in the treated area.
Phosphatidylcholine is a natural product found in our body. Its main role in the body is to help combine and breakdown fat and cholesterol. It is a key component of our cell membranes and high density lipoproteins (the good cholesterol). Phosphatidylcholine is been used widely all over the world for it's cholesterol pull down effect and its characteristic as a 'Liver protective.'
How many treatment sessions it is need it ?
You can expect results after about 2-3 treatment sessions. The number of sessions required is different from person to person. This inconsistency is due to individual responses to the treatments as well as the type of fat that is being treated. Soft fat works very well with Lipolysis, while fibrous fat is more difficult to treat with Lipolysis (as it is with liposuction) because more of the fat cells will deteriorate instead of completely bursting. During the pre-admission consultation, you will be informed as to how many sessions you will need to accomplish your desired result. It's not a question of whether Lipolysis will work, but rather how many treatments it will take to attain a goal in reduction.
Are there side effects?
Lipolysis is extremely encouraging from a safety perspective. The procedure is minor compared to most cosmetic procedures today. There have been no reports to date of severe adverse problems.
Generally patients experience soreness, bruising and a mild swelling on the areas treated lasting for about a week. Sometimes the presence of small lumps are felt in the area; these are painless, invisible and transient. Uncommon side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, infection (rare), and prolonged staining.
Can I go back to work after a treatment session?
Yes. Patients can resume normal daily activities after treatment, but this will depend on the amount of soreness you have, the area you have treated, and the type of work you do. Lipolysis treatment usually takes 45min to 1 hour to thorough.
Is it painful?
Small burning impression during the injection is expected. Should you have a low pain threshold, we can then apply an anesthetic cream to make you feel relaxed.
What does the action with lipolysis involve?
Lypolysis is injected into the treatment site with a fine needle after the area has been cleaned with chlorhexidine and alcohol disinfectant. Multiple injections will be made to cover the treatment area, with a spacing of about 1.5 cm per injection. You will usually be lying down during this process, and will need some time to recover before you will be able to drive yourself home. We prepare to provide about 1-4 treatments per area at monthly intervals, although most patients require just 2-3 treatments. The number of treatments varies from person to person depending on the region and the size of the area. Women usually respond better to the treatment than men due to the difference in the structure of connective tissue and fat cells.
After Lipolysis treatment, it is important to keep hydrated and to drink plenty of fluids. The lipolysis treated area must be massaged every night for a period of two weeks.
Can anyone undergo Lipolysis?

- Pregnant women and breast-feeding moms
- Patients with Cardiovascular diseases
- Patients with certain allergies
- Patients who currently have or used to
- have malignant disorders
- Patients with blood disorder
- Patients with kidney diseases
How long do I benefit from Lipolysis treatment?
Lipolysis results are permanent if you keep a healthy diet and get regular exercise.
