Frequently Asked Questions
How does non-invasive Laser Lipo technology work?
Non-invasive Laser Lipo technology works with a patented cold laser conductor that is placed on the skin over areas to be treated for 30 minutes. Originally designed to speed up healing, doctors noticed that the cold laser technology would also liquefy fat cells painlessly. In contrast to Liposuction, the non-invasive Laser Lipo does not remove the fat cell, it drains it. The fat can be metabolized normally by a healthy person, reshaping body contour by a few inches each week.
So the fat cells actually get smaller?
Yes! Fat cells are significantly reduced in size. This results in substantial body contour improvements. That's what makes LipoLaser such a great target treatment for trouble spots such as love handles, muffintop and saddllebags. Significant results are seen in just a few treatments.
Where does the fat go?
Laser Lipo treatments act to liquefy fats, which are drained through the lymphatic system. The effectiveness of fat drainage during and after treatment is dependent on proper functioning of the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing wastes from the body.
Is Laser Lipo Safe?
Yes. The Laser Lipo is a cold laser and cold laser therapies have been safely employed for more than 30 years in clinics throughout the world. In fact, the initial purpose of low level laser technology ( Meridian's Lapex-2000) was for pain relief and cell regeneration for healing. Laser Lipo is not suitable for those who are pregnant, have a kidney disorder, liver disease, poorly controlled diabetes or hypertension; epilepsy, have a pacemaker, have cancer and/or undergoing radiation therapy. It is not for use on children.
Is it painful? Does it hurt?
There is NO pain or discomfort during or after the Laser treatment.
What results can I expect from the Laser Lipo treatment?
Male and female clients have found that those hard to reduce trouble spots, such as love handles, tummy bulge, and saddlebags can be treated quite significantly within just a few treatments. Laser Lipo can help you contour and sculpt those places that do not respond to exercise and diet, as well as improve your cellulite and your overall appearance. The Laser Lipo helps tighten the skin as fat is lost by stimulating collagen and elastin production. This skin tightening is an important benefit and works well with a weight loss or post surgical program to help prevent saggy skin rolls.
Do I have to diet and exercise?
Studies have found that clients who eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly will experience the best Laser Lipo results; however, even clients with sluggish metabolism remark that they experience a unique and invigorating ‘body wake up.’
How can I optimize my results from Laser Lipo?
Patients can optimize their results through multiple Laser Lipo treatments each of which is immediately followed with 30-45 minutes of an activity meant to encourage lymph drainage . We offer whole body vibration training for 10 minutes immediately following Laser Lipo treatment for just this purpose.
Who is the ideal candidate for Laser Lipo treatment?
There is not really an "ideal" candidate. The LaserLipo has been shown to be effective on many different body types. The most immediately noticeable results are often shown on individuals who exercise (or have exercised) regularly, are not obese and/or who have localized fat deposits that they cannot get rid of with diet or exercise.
How many treatments are required?
The recommended treatment protocol is 1-3 times per week for 4 – 6 weeks and is sold in packages of 9 – 18 treatments depending on the clients desired results.
Will I have downtime after my treatments?
No. After your treatment, there is no requirement for bed rest or reduced activity and you can resume your normal schedule immediately.
