Weight Loss Q&A

What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Carrying a significant amount of extra pounds places an enormous toll on virtually every organ and system in your body. Men and women who are overweight or obese carry a higher risk of:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sleep apnea
  • Kidney disease
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Osteoarthritis

These are just some of the health problems that can develop when you are overweight or obese. 

What is Lipo-LightⓇ for weight loss?

Lipo-light is an alternative to traditional surgical liposuction, which removes fat cells by suctioning them through a cannula and out of your body. Lipo-Light uses LED light therapy to mimic your body’s natural process of metabolizing fat. 

During treatments, the Lipo-Light platform sends carefully controlled light and heat into your body through treatment pads. This prompts your body to release fatty acids, which are then swiftly burned away. 

How can ultrasonic cavitation help my weight loss journey?

Ultrasonic cavitation uses sound waves to disrupt the structural integrity of targeted fat cells, forcing them to release stored fat and eventually collapse. Treatments use a handpiece that glides over the surface of your skin. 

There is no pain, no damage to the surface of your skin, and no recovery time after sessions. You begin to see a reduction in fatty deposits in the treatment area in about a week, and it might take multiple treatments to achieve the desired effects. 

What is an infrared sauna blanket?

An infrared sauna blanket offers many of the same benefits as a traditional infrared sauna in a far more accessible treatment option. 

Sessions under an infrared sauna blanket can help reduce your blood pressure, clear toxins from your system, ease joint pain, and reduce inflammation. They can also help break apart fatty tissue deposits, giving your body a chance to metabolize that stored fat. 

What other weight loss support treatments are available?

If you’re deficient in certain vitamins, your body may not be able to effectively process and eliminate stored fat. Vitamin injections and intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy can help by replenishing those nutrients. Vitamin B12 is among the most commonly sought-after nutrients to support weight loss efforts. 

If you’ve ever had a body wrap at a salon or spa, you know just how relaxing this process can be. Freya’s Lair Medical Spa offers anti-cellulite wraps to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. 

After your provider massages a firming body cream into your skin, they wrap the treatment area to help retain heat and help the cream penetrate deeply. Next, you rest under the infrared sauna blanket for 30-50 minutes and enjoy the warmth. Don’t be surprised if you fall asleep during this relaxing session. 

Mesotherapy is another option and works by administering injections of plant extracts, enzymes, vitamins, and hormones into the middle layers of your skin. These injections can improve poor circulation and inflammation, both of which can impede your weight loss efforts. Mesotherapy can also improve the appearance of cellulite.
