How does Lypossage® work, and is it safe?
Lypossage cleanses the body of stagnant, stalled lymphatic fluid (Lymph edema) that can create the lumps and bulges known as figure imbalance. The deeper Lypossage strokes break up adhesions under the skin that can contribute to the dimpled, uneven appearance of cellulite. Lypossage also tones the muscles, lifting and firming sagging tissue.
Lypossage® is a non-invasive, natural health treatment that helps to cleanse the body of toxins and retaining fluids. Most clients find that Lypossage® enhances their energy and mental clarity. While there are some contradictions for specific medical conditions, Lypossage® can be safely experienced by most healthy individuals. It is much safer than surgical procedures such as liposuction. However, for those who opt for a more dramatic surgical result, Lypossage can be very beneficial both before and after the liposuction procedure.
What parts of the body respond to Lypossage®?
Lypossage can be performed on three areas of the body known as zones. The zones are defined as follows:
Zone 1: Improves and heals the lower body:
- including the hips
- lower abdomen
Expected outcomes for this part of the body include:
- dimension loss
- structural improvements (posture and carriage)
- diminished look of cellulite
- improved muscle tone
- improved skin tone
- cleansing of the lymphatic system
- and improved circulation
Zone 2: Improves and heals the torso area:
- improving posture
- dimension loss in the arms and abdomen
- toning and firming of the bust area
- improving circulation
- lymphatic flow in the upper body
- the upper abdomen
- decollete (chest and neck area) and arms
Zone 3: A “natural” face lift that heals:
- the head
Lypossage in Zone 3 reverses aging and provides dramatic results in:
- lifting and toning sagging tissues in the lower face and neck
- diminishing the appearance of wrinkles
- and significantly improving skin tone and texture
Why do I have cellulite, lumps and bulges?
The fatty tissue of your body acts as a “toxic waste disposal site,” where substances that it cannot metabolize are dumped. This congested tissue can have poor circulation (you’ll note that cellulite prone areas are cool to the touch). Lymphatic flow may also be restricted by tight undergarments and pantyhose. The cellulitic layer is a physiological fatty layer that is supposed to be there. The extent to which it is visible is affected by several variables including:
- genetic predisposition
- dietary habits
- exercise habits
- and hormones among others
How are my treatments scheduled?
Each Lypossage® session lasts about 30 minutes and is performed in a series of 18 sessions over the course of 4-6 weeks. It is important to note that for most clients, it takes 8-10 sessions before the results of the initial treatments become noticeable. After that, progress can be quite dramatic. Combining Lypossage® with Lypossage® wraps and the new LypoSlim® wrap further enhances your results.
What are some typical results and how will I know what mine are?
While results may vary, cumulative dimension loss over five key measuring points in Zone 1, the average was 6.75 inches in the original study. However, it is not uncommon to find cumulative inch loss of up to 13 or 14 inches. One client in the study lost almost 3 inches in her waist alone. One client in Ohio, while combining Zone 1 and Zone 2 had a cumulative inch loss of 21 inches in the 10 measuring points for those zones! Most women find that they will drop one or two dress sizes without a significant reduction in their weight. Your Lypotherapist will weigh, measure, and photograph you before you begin your program, and at key intervals to track your progress.
Is there a special diet or exercise program?
Though the individuals in the Lypossage® study were restricted from initiating any new diet or exercise program during the course of their treatments, Mint Dreams finds that most clients become so inspired by their Lypossage® results that they readily adopt lifestyle changes that help them progress even more rapidly. A diet rich in whole, organic foods and regular body movement will contribute to a terrific outcome.
Avoid foods containing:
- refined sugars
- caffeine and salt
A healthy diet will keep your newly detoxified body in the best shape possible. Drinking significant amounts of water is also key to keeping the body hydrated and cleansed.
What do I need to do to maintain my results?
Maintenance programs will be customized to the needs of each individual client. At completion of a Lypossage® series, your Lypotherapist will sit down with you to do a final consultation, including going over your Lypossage results with you and providing thoughtful recommendations on what your health maintenance program should be. Continuing with the Home Care Protocol and a program of monthly or bi-monthly maintenance treatments will help you retain your results.
