Lipo Laser Treatments

Lipo Laser . . . now that sounds interesting. A laser that melts those fat cells and helps to reshape your body. It is considered a non-invasive treatment that can treat specific areas to give better body contouring. It is painless; you simply relax and let the laser do the work. Usually, the area to be treated is measured. You are asked to lie down and elastic straps are used to hold the pair of lasers in place. While you relax, the laser causes the fat cells to release some of their contents (triglycerides), which is then converted into free fatty acids and glycerol that can be eliminated by normal tissue functioning.

Each area treated is exposed for 10 minutes, then the laser wands are relocated to an adjacent or different area. After the laser treatment is finished most centers will recommend a gentle work out for ten to 20 minutes to enhance the elimination from the tissues. Like other non-invasive laser, or light therapies, a series of treatments is recommended, the number depending on the results you are after. You are measured again after your treatment, and you should see an immediate improvement. This is an interesting approach to shrinking the fat cells, which will mean less cellulite as well.

Great results can be achieved, but it will take time (number of visits) and will cost between $100.00 - $150.00 per treatment. This type of laser can be used almost anywhere, under the chin, thighs, abdomen, upper arm etc. and there is no bruising or downtime. Don’t forget the home care, especially if your focus is eliminating cellulite.
