I know that feeling all too well. The one you get when you diet and exercise, but NOTHING seems to happen or change. And the world has turned into a place where we want instant gratification which has very much warped the expectations we create for ourselves. Sadly, it does not work like this in all aspects of our lives, especially not weightloss.
Fortunately, there are ways in which I can help you along your path.
LIPOGYM uses safe and proven approaches to manage the fat accumulation in hard to fix places on your body, like the mummy tummy, bat wings, love handles and saddlebags, by removing fat cells permanently as well as firming skin and toning muscles.
Emphasis is placed on the fact that healthy lifestyle changes contribute to general wellbeing in skin as well as body vitality, and is encouraged every step of the way.
See LIPOGYM as a way to just kickstart the process of fitness and healthy eating, by giving you physical and visual results to feel good about for a change.
The treatments have been designed to address the most common concerns for both men and women of all shapes and sizes. Even when I was at my lowest weight of 53kg during college, I just could not get rid of my saddlebags and it drove me crazy. Now, as a mother of two, with the youngest turning 6 soon, I realise that I can't blame pregnancy anymore for my mummy tummy either and the saddlebags are still not budging. Even if I plank until I am blue in the face, cut calories and drink tons of water the belly & thighs are not going anywhere and some serious intervention is needed.
That is where LIPOGYM comes in. To help women and men sculpt their bodies a little bit, with some amazing technology, and finally be happy with how clothes fit as well as feeling more comfortable to exercise without the excess jiggly bits!
LipoGym uses the following technology to assist in your fat reduction journey:
Cryolipolysis & Cavitation
Both of these treatments target and permanently remove subcutaneous fat (sitting underneath the skin and which causes the bulges and rolls) in 2 very unique ways.
Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as "Fat Freezing" by clients, uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells. The fat cells are particularly susceptible to the effects of cold, unlike other types of cells so while fat cells freeze, the skin and other structures are spared from injury.
A 2009 study looked at the clinical efficacy of cryolipolysis. The researchers found that cryolipolysis reduced the treated fat layer by as much as 25 percent. The results were still present six months after the treatment.
Frozen, dead fat cells are excreted out of the body through the liver & lymphatic system over the weeks following a treatment, revealing full results of fat loss after two to three months. And usually, only 1-3 treatments may be needed - depending on personal goals and the thickness of the resistant fat. Suitable for all ages and skin types. A complete treatment takes 60 minutes and can be repeated monthly on the selected area until the desired results are achieved
Cavitation on the other hand uses ultrasonic waves to rupture fat cells and allowing the body in this way, to safely remove the waste via the lymphatic system and liver. As with cryolipolysis, the treatment only targets the fat cells, with no effect on the surrounding organs and tissue.
In both 2007 and 2019 a study into the effectiveness of Cavitation, saw all the participants who received the treatment lose body fat in the treated areas.
Cavitation requires between 4-8 session, spaced 4 days apart to achieve the best results.
Radiofrequency body contouring is an excellent way to tighten the skin after fat loss treatments or weight loss procedures. It focuses on providing you with smoother and more even skin by boosting collagen synthesis and allowing the skin to be rejuvenated. This also means improvement of stretch marks.
As an added bonus it is also clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite! Radiofrequency is a highly recommended add on to any of the body sculpting treatments, should you wish to tighten and tone your skin.
LaserLipo is an alternative to liposuction with no pain, no needles and no downtime. The device emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them through channels in the cell membranes. It basically turns your fat cells from grapes into raisins.
You will initially receive a total of 8 treatments spread out over 1-2 months with an average loss of 2 cm per session, but individual results will vary. The results are natural-looking and will appear gradually. In a randomized, controlled study, patients experienced an average loss of 2-12 cm from their waist, hip and thighs in just one session.
EMS and BodyTherm
Muscles are effectively the fat burners of the body and the better shape they are in, the better they can perform that function.
EMS treatments aim to do just that. It stimulates hundreds of muscle contractions in a targeted area, such as the belly, imitating the effect which you will get from doing crunches, for example. (Obviously without the cardio benefits). The result is an intense workout which you will actually feel the next day :-)
Our machine can use up to 24 pads, meaning you can cover a large area and has nine selectable programs designed to slim, tone and firm targeted body areas. It also has a Lymph drainage function, making it the perfect add on to your Cavitation and laserlipo sessions, especially when combined with the BodyTherm heat wraps.ies
