Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ - Cavitation
Can I lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation? Cavitation is not a method of weight loss. It is designed to reshape and sculpt the body and remove localised stubborn fat or cellulite. Lipo Angel treatments work best when combined with low fat and low carbohydrate diet and regular exercise and these will help you to lose weight.
How long should I wait after childbirth to have cavitation treatments? You must be a minimum of 3 months after normal birth of your baby or a minimum of 6 months after C section. It is best to get GP approval post childbirth prior to commencing cavitation lipo.
What would happen if I had Lipo Angel cavitation during my period? Ultrasound increases blood flow and you would feel very uncomfortable.
Is cavitation safe if a woman has a fitted contraception coil? Yes this is not a contraindication.
How many treatments can I have? We recommend you have a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 treatments before having a break of 4 weeks to allow your body to recover. You should allow 72 hours between treatments
How soon will I see a result? Most clients will have a noticeable reduction in their measurements after the very first treatment, some have recorded 5 inches the average however is 2 inches loss. The process of fat removal continues for up to 7 days after each treatment, so it isn’t unusual to see a further decrease a day or two after your initial treatment.
Is the fat reduction permanent? Yes, the fat cells are fractured, broken down and the cells are drained away through the liver and passed as waste from the body. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and drink plenty of water then your reduction will remain.
How long is a treatment? The whole service including consultation and measurement will be between 45 minutes to no more than one hour
Do I have to rest afterwards? No the great thing about the Lipo Angel service is that you can go about your day as normal, we do advice you to increase your water intake by 2 litres to help with the fat removal.
Is there an age limit? Yes, it is company policy to not provide the Lipo Angel service to anyone under the age of 18.
Can I have more than one area treated if I pay? No the body has to work hard to remove the excess fat that is now passing through the lymphatic system to the liver. Treating multiple areas in not advisable and may not be effective. Follow the rule, of one area, one treatment every 72 hours and you will see rapid results.
What if I don’t see any results straight away? It is important to remember that everyone is different, and your body will work according your unique metabolism. You will see reduction during a course of treatments that is why we recommend at least 6 to get a great result.
Can I combine the Lipo Cavitation with the ‘Non Surgical Facelift’? Yes absolutely you can, this is a different treatment to the lipo cavitation. The micro lift and photon therapy stimulates cell renewal and collagen production, tones the muscles of the face to reduce fine line and wrinkles, improves and lifts sagging skin.
What can I do at home to help with the treatments? Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol before and after your service, try and increase your heart rate by taking some exercise and avoid too many carbohydrates.
FAQ - Non Surgical Face Lifting
Can I combine the ‘Non-Surgical Facelift’ with either Cryolipolysis or Lipo Cavitation? Yes, they are a different treatment.
Does the treatment hurt? The treatment should never be uncomfortable so the settings are individually set according to your own individual level of comfort.
Will my face be sore or affect the expression on my face? Clients report feeling the skin is tighter which settles within a few days. We are re-training the muscles in the face which have become saggy over time so if anything, the muscles will be more effective.
Is the treatment for older people? The treatment can be for everyone. If you are younger or have little signs of ageing, you can have a maintenance programme in order to not need a full treatment programme later on.
Will people know that I’ve had help with my more youthful appearance? Of course we want everyone to shout about the amazing results because it is the best advertising but it is completely up to you if you tell people that you have had treatments with me, your official Lipo Angel Technician, the treatment is non-invasive so there are no scars and you won’t have to take time off work to recover. We are professionals and your privacy is paramount. The location is my home based studios in Woodley, a discreet location. I want a personal experience for everyone and don’t want a constant stream of clients queuing so there is little chance for you to meet another client at the beginning or end of your treatment.
We find that it is important to take photos so you can see for yourself the difference to compare after treatment as the texture and appearance is as important to clients as the actual inch loss, so we welcome using your own camera or phone for your own photographs for your peace of mind if you have any concerns.
FAQ - Hair Restoration
Is it painful? No, it is not at all painful. The best results will obtained when gently combing through the hair to use the Micro Current simultaneously so if you don’t like the occasional tingling, I don’t have to use micro current and I can just hover it over the hair. This way may take longer to get results but my priority is your comfort.
Will Photon Light Therapy work on bald areas? It cannot revive dead cells but the light will work on hair cells even if they are thin as long as they are present. They help to thicken the hair cell and encourage faster growth. This is why we encourage clients to start the treatment sooner rather than later for the best results.
Why do you recommend a course of treatment of Photon Light Therapy? It is unlikely you will see results after the first treatment so a course of treatments would be anticipated for all hair rejuvenation unless you are starting early in order to keep the hair you already have.
How often should I come in for the hair rejuvenation? I recommend twice a week for 5 weeks for a course. You may wish to continue with treatments in this manner or move to a maintenance programme to maintain the results you have gained.
Can I have red photon therapy for my hair at lunchtime or after work? The treatment time is only 30 minutes, so yes you can.
Can it be used for eyebrows? Yes, it’s ideal for thickening eyebrows. The hand piece is hovered over the eyebrows rather than brushing through hair. The results may not be seen as quickly using this method, but the same results of rejuvenating weakened hairs are achieved.
