The Liposhaper® treatment is not a liposuction, but it works just the same way, as it decreases the number of fat cells in the body but without the inconvenience of the surgical procedure (anesthesia, cuts, pain and recovering time), and not damaging the skin, the blood vessels or the peripheral nerves.
Real cases have shown that clients lost up to 20 cm of fat in specific zones, such as the abdomen, thighs and knees*.
How does it work?
In the beginning Clínica do Tempo® only made available the Liposhaper® MAX treatment using two ultra-sounds with distinctive frequencies to get rid of localised fat.
This action makes the fat fall into the lymphatic system, where it is quickly eliminated. Its double action allows treating simultaneously different sorts and levels of fat.
But recently we have introduced the Liposhaper® REV treatment that combines the use of two different technologies: focused ultra-sounds with distinctive frequencies and a low-density laser that weakens the fat cells membrane structure allowing the fat to drain into the interstitial space, the empty space existing between cells. This new treatment can eliminate a larger quantity of fat in less time, becoming more comfortable to clients during the whole treatment procedure.
What’s the Liposhaper® for and how the fat is eliminated?
It is made for removing the excess of fat and to model the body contour in specific areas such as the waist, the thighs, the hips, the knees and back.
Before the treatment, the adipocytes, or fat cells, are full of fat (reserves). The Liposhaper® technology weakens the adipocyte’s membrane, and the fat elimination that was made available from this action, occurs by means of the body natural combustion process that will use those reserves as a form of energy.
The path of elimination is much the same as in a simple slimming procedure, no fat being collected in the blood or the liver.
To get rid of localised fat in a healthy way and no need of a surgical intervention can be possible with the Liposhaper® treatment, providing that all received directions are observed.
Is there a risk of Fat Embolism?
No. Fat Embolism occurs when fat cells agglomerates get in the blood stream due to a trauma, typically after a long bones fracture. With the LIPOSHAPER® treatment triglycerides are firstly processed by the lymphatic system where they are transformed by lipases into free fat acids before they enter the blood stream, thus not existing any risk of Fat Embolism.
Is it safe?
Yes. The Liposhaper® treatment is totally painless and non-invasive and normal activities may continue immediately upon its execution.
Clinical blood test and urine confirm the fat elimination with total safety, without cholesterol increase and triglycerides.
There is no adverse side-effect related to the treatment.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
This is a truly innovative treatment of great efficiency that, in Portugal, is only made available by Clínica do Tempo®.
- Treatment performed without any special preparation or recovery time.
- Client may go on with his daily routine (go to work or practice exercise) the same moment the treatment is ended, which has a duration from 1 to 2 hours, in average.
- Safety and efficiency evidenced with tens of millions of patients.
- Possibility of losing up to 20 centimetres on body contour with a single treatment*
- Its action is immediate and there is no need of future maintenance*.
- It may be more efficient, cheaper and safer than a traditional liposuction, as long as all directions received are observed.
HOW LONG LASTS EACH SESSION?
It depends on the body area to treat and its extension. But, in average, a treatment takes 1 to 2 hours.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?
The Liposhaper® treatment is normally done in on and only session. Results get larger as the body is freeing itself from the fat resulting from the intervened fat cells. After the first month results may be extremely visible*.
HOW MUCH IT COSTS?
There are no two identical persons with equal needs. So, the cost of the treatment depends with the intervention zones to be treated. Each Liposhaper® session may cost a thousand euros onwards by zone.
