Shedding unwanted fat is often a challenge within the beauty industry, with brands and professionals constantly innovating with new treatment plans. While dietary changes and exercises can go so far in slimming down the figure, some fatty deposits can be incredibly resilient and require salon-standard treatments.
Traditionally, this involved consulting a plastic or cosmetic surgeon to perform liposuction, cryo lipo or smart lipo. However, these procedures often require anaesthesia, can be incredibly costly and painful.
Silk’n offers a contemporary alternative to this age-old dilemma. Their latest device, Silk’n Lipo eliminates the need for medical intervention, promising to reduce stubborn fat and strengthen underlying muscles over time. What’s more the device attaches to a flexible belt, delivering toning power in just 15 minutes.
Silk’n Lipo uses a combination of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), both of which have been clinically proven to be effective and safe to use.
Low-Level Laser Light Therapy gently penetrates through the skin’s surface to perforate fat cell membranes and gradually break down stubborn deposits that have built-up over time. The body then drains these deposits over time, resulting in a slimmer appearance.
The addition of EMS technology contracts and relaxes the muscles to improve overall tone and contour. What’s more, the electrical stimulations boost blood circulation and activates your natural lymphatic drainage, accelerating the results of the light therapy.
When attached to the adjustable belt, the device allows you to effortlessly target problem areas, such as the abdomen, flank area, thighs, buttocks and upper arms.
Step 1. Fully charge the device before beginning your treatment.
Step 2. Wet the pads and position them onto each device.
Step 3. Connect the devices and attach to the belt, placing it around the area that you would like to treat. Make sure the units are in good contact with your skin and are fully secured to the body.
Step 4. Switch the device on – this will make the laser diodes glow red.
Step 5. Adjust the EMS-energy level using the + and – buttons. We suggest starting with a lower treatment level and working up to the setting that feels most comfortable for you.
Step 6. Treat each body area for 15 minutes at a time, for a maximum of 3 times of week per area.
For best results, we recommend drinking plenty of water before and after the treatment to enhance your body’s natural waste drainage. Please note, this device is not suitable for use over tattooed skin.
