A little fat is good, but too much is bad. Did you know there is also a difference between fat cells in your body. We can have healthy fat cells and we can have unhealthy fat cells.
Environmental chemicals, stress, and environmental changes all increases the size of your fat cells. The fat cells become enlarged and “angry.” All of the enlarged fat cells begin fighting over a limited blood supply and nutrients. These fighting cells become inflamed and secrete adipokines, which are inflammatory hormones. Hormones play many roles in the body, and adipokines have been found to be involved in a variety of inflammatory conditions. (Read more about adipokines in Pubmed)
Here's a video that explains part of the science behind the Lipo-Laser we've added to the clinic.
People are very familiar with BMI (body mass index) and health risks. We all know how excessive abdominal fat and abdominal circumference contribute to increased risks of cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. Total body fat mass is a problem, but it is worse to store more of the fat around your stomach and abdomen than have it evenly distributed throughout the body. Every inch of abdominal fat is a problem.
This is going to sound strange but not all fat is equal. Angry fat cells are very bad for your health and increase the risk of chronic diseases. The “angry” fat cells need to stop releasing adipokines, and lasers can help.
Laser therapy is an excellent treatment for reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow. We have known for decades that specific wavelengths reduce inflammation by stopping inflammatory cells from producing inflammatory hormones and chemical pathways. Lasers are shutting off and eliminating adipokines in fat tissue, which calms the angry fat cells and causes enlarged fat cells to shrink. Blood flow increases to the fat tissue to provide needed nutrients. Increased blood flow also reduces the extra fluid associated with swelling.
Think of a sprained and swollen ankle. It stays enlarged for weeks because injured cells secrete inflammatory hormones that increase inflammation and causes excessive fluid to accumulate in the ankle. Inflammatory cells continue to secrete inflammatory hormones for weeks after injuries, which impedes normal body lymphatic fluid flow, creating a chronically swollen ankle. Lasers help to shut off the inflammatory pathways and increase blood flow, allowing the excessive swelling to be removed from the area.
The same mechanisms happens with fat cells. Does it make sense that injured cells and tissue would respond similarly to injury and irritation? Specific lasers wavelengths shut off inflammatory adipokines that cause excessive inflammation to accumulate around fat cells. This is why people experience 1-3 inches of abdominal loss after two weeks of treatment.
In the study by M. BLuher Adipose tissue dysfunction contributes to obesity related metabolic diseases they treated 689 participants for two weeks. One week after treatment they experienced an overall loss of 3.27 inches across the waist, hips, and thighs. There was also a reduction around the arms, knees, neck, and chest, which were areas not treated directly by the laser. This strongly supports information from laser lipo claims of reducing throughout the body (Hormones communicate with tissue all over the body).
Lipo laser treatment costs vary between spas, medical offices, and clinics. Spas and body contouring centers charge hundreds of dollars per visit for the same low level light therapy. The laser wavelengths are the same. The cost difference buys you better decorations. We admit it, our room is decorated for a therapy clinic that specializes in injuries and decreasing inflammation. Our treatment goals are to reduce inflammation and abdominal size, at a reasonable costs. Costs of Laser Lipo
A growing body of scientific evidence is telling us that adipose tissue is a very sophisticated organ regulating both energy storage and metabolic management of our body, as well as the main branches of immune system. The adipose tissue is strictly linked with our brain and regulates other organ systems. Adipose tissue paracrine activity regulates turnover, regeneration homeostasis of epidermis, dermis and cutaneous appendages. Adipokines, molecules produced by adipocytes play an important role in many skin disease other than in systemic diseases. Pathophysiology of subcutaneous fat. Cassisa A
Intensive studies conducted over the last two decades showed that adipokines exert broad effects on cardiac metabolism and function. In addition, the available data strongly suggests that these cytokines play an important role in development of cardiovascular diseases epicardial adipose tissue and its role in cardiac physiology and disease by toczylowski, k. 2013
Adipose tissue dysfunction contributes to obesity related metabolic diseases. 2013 Blüher M. Obesity significantly increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, fatty liver disease, dementia, obstructive sleep apnea and several types of cancer. Adipocyte and adipose tissue dysfunction represent primary defects in obesity and may link obesity to metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. Adipose tissue (AT) dysfunction manifests by a proinflammatory adipokine secretion pattern that mediate auto/paracrine and endocrine communication and by inflammatory cell infiltration, particularly in intra-abdominal fat.
