Laser Lipo

HOW DOES LASER LIPO WORK?

Unlike conventional liposuction, the idea of noninvasive laser lipo is not to remove fat cells, but to shrink them.

During each session of  Laser-Lipo, I place pads equipped with laser diodes directly onto the skin. The laser energy penetrates down to the fat cells and creates tiny holes in their membranes. This causes the fat cells to release their stored fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body and then shrink, potentially resulting in lost inches. The body then flushes out the expelled fat-cell contents via the lymphatic system or burns them for energy.

WHO'S ELIGIBLE FOR LASER LIPO?

The pool of ideal candidates for laser lipo is a little bit smaller than for traditional lipo because the procedure isn't perfect for extensive weight loss. It might be right for you if you're:

  • Only about 25 pounds over your ideal weight

  • More concerned with "problem areas" than total-body weight loss

  • In good health with good skin elasticity

If you are still not sure, schedule a Consultation Only and we can discuss your needs and what works for you and I can answer any questions you may have.      Consultation Only 

 

WHAT IS THE LASER LIPO PROCESS LIKE?

It is very relaxing.  All you have to do is relax. I  apply the laser pads to the targeted area, inundating it with laser energy for about 10 to 20 minutes. If necessary I may move the pads to focus on another area and repeat the treatment. And that's about it. You may see a difference immediately, but for best results, you'll need more than 1 treatment. 

Here are some fast facts about the recommended  treatment cycle:

*Though some clients begin to notice results after only a few sessions, most require 8 treatments to see maximum results.  Laser Lipo takes longer than Cavi Lipo to see results. ..usually. 

* Two treatments per week for four weeks are recommended.

* Because the treatment is not invasive, no downtime is required.

HOW MUCH DOES LASER LIPO COST?

The cost of Laser Lipo can vary considerably depending on the size of the area you want to treat.

 A typical series of eight sessions is $699.00  However,  I usually have a Special Discount on my treatments for limited times during the year.  So look for one of my special deals on the Home page.

Plus, I always give discounted deals for all repeat clients, as well.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH LASER LIPO?

All parts of the body that store fat can be treated.

The most common treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen

  • Waistline

  • Thighs

  • Arms

  • Under the chin

HOW LONG DO LASER LIPO RESULTS LAST?

Because Laser-Lipo does not destroy fat cells but rather empties them of their contents, the fat cells are capable of storing fat again. A balanced diet is the only way to ensure lasting results.

"When you're at home, I want you to make some good dietary choices.  Eat lean protein. Stay away from alcoholic beverages and sugar. Those who take in more calories than they burn will see their improvement start to decrease over time.   So just be Mindful of what you eat and drink.
