LightRx combines different treatments, using cutting edge medical devices, to destroy fat, reduce cellulite, tighten skin and shape your body using the latest medical devices to compliment your weight loss. The science behind our LightRx protocol combines leading-edge treatments for dramatic results. FDA-cleared, non-invasive, fast, safe and effective. Treatments are performed by our highly-trained, professional staff and overseen by physicians.
LightRx utilizes a combination of FDA-approved devices, like pulsed magnetic fields, radio frequencies, and low-level laser technology to target the areas of the body that you would to sculpt or tighten. Treatments are fast (most are 30 minutes), non-invasive and require no downtime. Combining several treatments plus the addition of diet, exercise and lifestyle change optimizes results!
Fat can be notoriously difficult to lose, even with extensive diet and exercise. This is because the body tends to target fat last when drawing on stored energy reserves, favoring more readily available forms of energy like sugars and carbohydrates. The the RxLipo technology uses low-level laser technology approved for fat reduction by the FDA, to activate a natural response in the body that breaks down fat cells on command - effectively tricking the body into targeting fat, instead of sugar of carbohydrates.
How Does It Work
Using treatments pads placed on the body, the RxLipo emits low levels of laser energy. This laser energy creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them though the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to tissues to be used for energy. This process of fatty acid release is a natural response when the body needs to use stored energy reserves. This means that the treatment is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body and is completely safe to surrounding structures like skin, blood vessels and nerves.
Important to Note
A recommended 30-45 minutes of post treatment exercise will help metabolize and then eliminate the freed fatty acids.
Is it Safe
The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored. Safe, painless and effective. Treatment time is roughly 30 minutes and you can return to normal activity immediately following.
Even with diet and exercise, many struggle to lose fat in trouble areas (like tummy and love handles). We have a consistent number of fat cells that stay with us throughout life. Even through weight loss this number does not decrease but instead the cells become smaller. With SculpSure™, in a 25 minute procedure, up to 24% of the treated fat cells can be destroyed without surgery.
How Does It Work
Applicators are placed on the desired treatment area to target stubborn fat. Light based energy (heat) penetrates and collapses fat cells. In the following weeks after treatment the body naturally processes eliminates the injured fat cells, resulting in a slimmer appearance.
Important to Note
SculpSure is especially effective after a protocol of RxLipo and in conjunction with Venus Legacy treatments, therefore the two SculpSure treatments are recommended in Weeks 15 and 21. Many patients see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
Is it Safe
The treatment is FDA-cleared and can be performed safely on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored. You may feel sensations of heat and tingling, but most patients find the treatment quite tolerable.
The Venus Legacy™ offers a powerful advancement in body contouring and body sculpting technology. It combines radio frequencies and magnetic pulses into a patented (MP)2 technology that targets cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. This treatment is especial effective when paired with SculpSure and RxLipo, because of its skin tightening effects.
How Does It Work
Venus Legacy™ uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce heat under the skin's surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers, while also shrinking the volume of fat cells. At the same time, an adjustable pulsed suction (called VariPulse™) gently works to pull the skin upward, allowing the energy to travel deeper and providing more comfortable and effective treatment. The result is a body that looks slimmer and more sculpted, skin that looks tighter, and cellulite almost disappears.
Important to Note
Venus Legacy™ uses heat to naturally boost collagen production and break down fat cells, which smooths out cellulite, improves the look of sagging skin, and diminishes wrinkles on the face and body with no downtime.
Is it Safe
The FDA-cleared radio frequency technology is proven safe and effective for all skin tones. Venus Legacy™ treatments are quite comfortable and the level of heat and suction can easily be adjusted to suit you.
