How does Lipo Laser work?
How it Works
When the laser paddles are placed on the skin, the cold red laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events takes place. Firstly pores form on the fat cell causing the Water, Glycerol and Fatty Acids to spill out. The water, Glycerol and fatty acids move into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin. Then further water, fatty acids and Glycerol spill out. The adipocyte cells are therefore reduced in size.
These effects do not affect the neighboring structures such as the skin, blood vessels or nerves. The lymphatic system then removes the fat through the venous system where they are processed in the same way as fatty foods that are digested.
For clients with darker skin (Fitzpatrick scale 3 – 6) we recommend 8 to 10 laser bars. This will remove the possibility of hypopigmentation as the laser exposure time is only 10 minutes.
Independent clinical studies have shown Laser Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 40% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment. Additional treatments improve results further. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment as the fat cell contents are released. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the removal of the released fat.
Compared to surgical liposuction and other Ultrasound or laser techniques, Laser Lipo is much more affordable with similar results.
Safe and Painless
Laser Lipo uses low levels of visible red laser light to create a safe and painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. This stimulation is of the normal chemical pathways which the body uses to free up energy resources when required, so Laser Lipo does not produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighboring nerves or vital organs. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
Results can be seen immediately after treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 10 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 to 3 treatments per week.
Targeted Fat Reduction
Laser Lipo can target fat reduction in specific problem area. By positioning the laser pads on the target area such as chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. This is a big advantage over diet and exercise which can reduce overall body fat but not shape individual areas.
