Slim U Canada - Non-invasive Fat Loss
 
The Science
 
Using Cold Low Level Laser Therapy Technology, the latest FDA approved (patented) lipo laser mimics the body's natural metabolic process to provide a painless and non-invasive alternative to surgery, resulting in effective body contouring results and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
This treatment emulsifies the adipose tissue which is then released into the interstitial space. The excess fat is passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification.
During each treatment, the lipo laser energy safely penetrates your skin at a specific wavelength targeted for adipose cells - otherwise known as fat cells. These adipose cells are permeated, releasing their triglyceride content so that the body may utilize them as an energy source. As the adipocytes release these triglycerides into circulation, their size diminishes.
 
Low level lasers have been used successfully in private practice for over 30 years and in numerous studies worldwide. To date, there are no known reports of anyone being harmed by a low level laser, which is extremely safe when used correctly.

Rather than remove fat cells through surgical liposuction – which is invasive, costly, painful and potentially risky – lipolaser aims to simply shrink the fat cells in your body.

Most liposuction alternatives are created to be safer than liposuction since potential risks of surgery and anesthesia scare people away from getting the procedure done.
However, the most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a liposuction alternative is whether it has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

  • This method involves a medical laser. When the laser is used on problem areas like the stomach, waist, arms, hips or thighs, it utilizes cold energy to force fat out of the cells. Then, the body eliminates the fat on its own.
  • Because it is non-invasive, it poses fewer risks that liposuction surgery. Plus, patients report no pain and can remain active during their treatments since no recovery time is required.
 
Laser energy safely penetrates patients’ skin at a specific wavelength targeted for adipose (fat) cells.
 
  • Adipose cells are permeated releasing free fatty acids (FFA’s), water and glycerol. Together these compounds are known as triglycerides.
  • Triglycerides are normally released from fat cells when the body needs energy.
  • Once released, the glycerol and free fatty acids are used by the body as an energy source.
  • Adipose cells “shrink” significantly, resulting in inch loss for patients.
  • The real advantage of this technology lies in the fact that we can specifically target a troubled area.  Once the fats have been released from the cell they can be used by the body as a fuel source.  It is therefore critical that the dietary and lifestyle changes are made to help support the goals of treatment.
  • In contrast to high power, high heat lasers that are used in various medical procedures, the low level laser used for this treatment is a cold laser and has no thermal effect on tissue.  Though safe and non-invasive, any medical or cosmetic procedure carries risks, complications and varied results to its effectiveness.
  • Low level laser therapy (LLLT) works by reducing the fat content of your fat cells in the treated area and does not remove or kill the fat cell.

Cellulite is a common term used to describe superficial pockets of trapped fat, which causes uneven dimpling or "orange peel" skin. It appears in 90% of post-adolescent women.
In advanced stages of cellulite, heaviness and pain may occur.
Currently available treatments for cellulite have minimal to no demonstrable effect and some involve risky invasive procedures.
Therefore, the potential advantages of the application of low level laser light therapy to reduce the appearance of cellulite over current treatment options include a risk free procedure that is non-invasive and pain free.
Since low level laser light has been proven to increase the synthesis of collagen, it is believed that its application may serve to decrease the appearance of cellulite by tightening the skin.
Moreover, newly synthesized collagen may alter the irregular pattern of the connective tissue responsible for the formation of cellulite.

Typical results with the New patented Lipo Laser have proven to be substantially more effective and consistent than traditional competitors, as the patent direct skin application allows for the focused delivery of laser energy to specific treatment areas as well as deeper penetration leading to targeted and more effective treatment results.
 
10 minute Whole Body Vibration sessions and exercise are recommended immediately
post-treatment to burn FFA’s within the body and help stimulate the lymphatic system.
 
What happens when low level lasers hit the fatty tissue (adiopocytes)?
 
A low-power laser of a semiconductor Diode type is able to disrupt the external membrane of the
fat cell, inducing lipolysis. Transmission electron microscopic images of the adipose tissue demonstrate a transitory pore and complete deflation of the adiopocytes.

After 4 minutes of laser exposure, 80% of the fat is released from the fat cells; at 6 minutes of laser exposure,
99% of the fat is released.
The released fat is then collected in the interstitial space (space around cell).
Water, glycerol and Free flowing fatty acids are released.
 
Where Does The Fat Go?
 
The fat is absorbed by the lymphatic system where it gets broken down and then processed by the liver and then gets converted as an energy source.
This natural process allows your body to excrete the fat and it leaves your body through your natural waste mechanisms. This makes the LipoLaser so attractive.
Other procedures kill and destroy the fat cells and that is not a natural or healthy approach.
This can cause adverse effects and is not a natural and safe option.
 
The LipoLaser is safe, natural, and holistic in its approach to helping you reduce the fat where you want it.
 
How Does It Work?

weight loss
The FFA's are utilized in the body as energy or are reabsorbed by other cells, while water is utilized or excreted and glycerol is processed through natural metabolic functions including gluconeogenesis.
During a standard treatment cycle, the body can easily process the amount of mobilized fat that is released.
Cell debris is cleared by natural metabolic pathways while structures such as blood vessels and peripheral nerves remain intact.
 
Fat cells are significantly reduced in size.
 
The remarkable images above demonstrate the low-level laser’s ability to emulsify adipose tissue.
The pictures highlight the collapse of the rigid adipose cells, and secretion of triglycerides and fatty acid from the cells.

How Triglycerides and Fatty Acids Escape

These images show the formation of a transitory pore forming in the bi-lipid membrane of an adipose cell. This pore is the direct result of the low-level laser stimulation, and the reason why the triglycerides and fatty acids are able to move into the interstitial space. This pore is not damaging to the cell, and simply serves to allow the fatty content to evacuate the cell.

FEMALES: Do not start the laser sessions if you are currently pregnant, breast feeding or lactating. 

Women: It is best if you do not have treatments while you are on your menstruation cycle. 
You may have treatments during your cycle however you may not see the results that you would if you have the treatments while you are not cycling.

    DISCLAIMER: Independent clinical studies have shown Laser Lipo to be, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Additional treatments improve results further. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment as the fat cell contents are released. Even though the New patented lipo laser has been proven effective, like any medical procedure results vary and can't be guaranteed for all. In contrast to high power, high heat lasers that are used in various medical procedures, the low level laser (lllt) used for this treatment is a cold laser and has no thermal effect on tissue. 
    Though safe and non-invasive, any medical or cosmetic procedure carries risks, complications and varied results to its effectiveness. The majority of clients however do achieve an ongoing inch loss of up to 2 inches per treatment,
    results do vary. Also, a healthy lifestyle is important.
    * Slim U Canada Inc.'s Guarantee Program for Fat / Inch Loss: Limited guarantee program is offered on the inch loss of the abdominal area only (must be a 20 min treatment of that area, upper and lower part of the abdominal region).  Guaranteed Area: Abdominal (stomach area) includes 3 measurements: at the navel, below the navel and above the navel. The Abdominal area is calculated by adding the loss from the guaranteed area (Guarantee is on cumulative loss area of stomach area (3 measurements added together), from the base measurement to the final measurement).
    The abdominal area must be measured before the first treatment (base measurement) and immediately post the final treatment. * client must adhere to guarantee program / qualification terms and Slim U Canada Inc. protocol for treatments  * ask for details * some restrictions apply * must be eligible.  There is no guarantee program on inch loss in the areas of: chin, arms, upper back, buttox or legs (upper thigh, lower leg or around knee area).  Additionally there is no guarantee with respects to treatments purchased for weight loss, cellulite or skin tightening, as this procedure is an elective, cosmetic procedure and is not an exact science there are no guarantees.
