How is Ion Magnum different form a Muscle Stimulator?
Muscle stimulators electrically stimulate the muscles to cause twitching. This may be useful to treat certain conditions needing physiotherapy. However, when it comes to fat loss, it isn’t really effective. Stimulators deplete the energy stores in the muscle causing them to fatigue. Hence, the results are limited. Furthermore, if you lose muscle, your metabolic rate drops. This means you burn lesser calories and you end up putting on weight eventually. The Ion Magnum, on the other hand, ensures long-term weight loss without exerting any strain on the body.
What are the SIDE EFFECTS / Is it SAFE ?
Ion Magnum and Nanotechnology are non-invasive and safe technologies. Ion Magnum is an FDA approved technology. It uses Nano-current and the waveforms similar to the body's endogenous signals, so the body accepts them well. Ultrasonic Lipolysis only targets fat cells without affecting other organs. Thus, there are absolutely NO SIDE EFFECTS.
How soon can I start seeing / feeling the results ?
The effects are seen in the 1st session itself. We take 2 or 3 measurements of the targeted area before beginning treatment. Post treatment, the same area is measured again. Ninety percent of our clients lose 1 to 3 inches in a single session with enhanced results over a period of time. Some may experience results during the week, following treatment. However, for visible and lasting results, we recommend multiple sessions based on individual fat analysis.
What happens to the fat?
With the unique treatment offered at Define Aesthetics, fat is lysed and converted to ATP and metabolites. The fat is then excreted by the body's lymphatic and hepatic system. It is also burned down as the most preferred source for energy, providing the safest results.
Are the results permanent?
Weight loss achieved through improper techniques can be due to water loss, fat loss and muscle loss. Weight lost due to water loss will come back the moment you drink a few glasses of water. If you lose muscle, your metabolic rate drops; this means you burn lesser calories and you will end up putting on weight. That's why, at Define Aesthetics, with Ion Magnum, we target Scientific weight loss i.e. we reduce both subcutaneous and visceral fat and improve muscle mass. At the end of the treatment, your metabolic rate improves so you burn more calories and deposit less. New fat cells are not formed in the body after maturity. HIFU treatment destroys fat cells. Less fat cells means less space for the body to deposit fat. If one follows the healthy lifestyle that we advise our patients. Everyone who has completed the treatment with us are maintaining the results very well.
How much time does it take to recover?
None. Since only a small amount of lactic acid is produced, Ion Magnum treatments do not cause the soreness or muscle aches that commonly result from conventional exercise.
Is it painful?
During the Ion Magnum treatment, expect to experience vibrations in the skin as the muscles smoothly contract. You will feel the contractions but the treatment itself should not result in any pain. HIFU is also a painless treatment.
