FAQ The Science
Once we have fully understood your goals, we will work with you to help identify the target areas. The laser lipolysis treatment will last approximately 40 minutes in which time laser Diodes will be placed on each of the target areas for 10-20 minutes. Due to the low levels of energy transmitted from each of these lasers, patients are likely to experience a relaxing warm sensation. It is important to note these time frames are relatively subjective depending on our patient’s aims.
It is likely patients may experience high levels of energy immediately after each laser lipolysis session. Therefore exercise, although not essential, is recommended, as it will accelerate the removal of fat, by drawing on the readily available excess energy that now resides in the interstitial space due to the treatment. Subsequently reducing visible fat.
The affects of laser lipo are clinically proven and Patients can expect zero discomfort, and are more than welcome to catch up on their favourite TV shows or even read, whilst they get one step closer to that perfect body.
The complete laser lipolysis experience will last no more than 40 minutes from the time the treatment begins, hence the term the lunchtime treatment.
The number of laser lipolysis sessions varies depending on the targeted area and the number of areas being treated. Patients will experience fat loss from the very first treatment. Studies have shown that one session often results in a 30% reduction in the layer of fat. Whether you are lucky enough to only need the one session is entirely dependent upon your goals.
Generally speaking however, Laser Lipolysis requires 3-6 sessions each of which are undertaken no longer than 2-3 days apart, this is to ensure the cells do not reabsorb the fat. This also allows us to monitor your progression and cater to your every need, at each step of the way to ensure optimal results.
Patients must drink plenty of water when undertaking laser lipolysis treatment, as this will help metabolize the glycerol and fatty acids released from the fat cells. Healthy eating is advised during and after treatment to maintain a perfect physique. You are more than welcome to come back for more treatments, should your diet go astray.
Laser lipolysis vs. Cryolipolysis®
Where as Laser lipolysis leaves zero marks, the nature of the Cryolipolysis® procedure may result in temporary bruising on each of the targeted areas. Therefore, if patients hope to be treated discreetly with no signs of treatment, Laser Lipolysis is strongly recommended due to its gradual process. Additionally, the time taken for a full treatment of Laser Lipolysis will last no longer than a few weeks, as patients are recommended to have several sessions within short periods of time. Although you are welcome to have as many or as few sessions as you prefer.
