Here are some of the frequently asked questions (FAQ):
What is Laserlipo and what does it do?
Laserlipo is the latest non-invasive slimming and body contouring treatment.
This procedure is designed to reduce levels of unwanted fat without surgery.
The laser penetrates through the skin to the 3rde layer (the Hypodermis).
The Laser then distorts the cellular membranes then Glycerol, water and free fatty acids emerge from the cells.
The fat cells reduce in size and the lymphatic system then removes the fatty liquids through the venous system.
The body needs to get the released liquids out through heat or energy in 24 hours (otherwise it will just go back in to the fat cells again).
With one treatment the Laserlipo machine takes about 425 calories out of your fat cells
How do the treatments work?
After completing the necessary paperwork at the clinic or salon your target areas get measured.
Two large Diode laser paddles are placed on the fatty areas.
Two smaller Probe lasers are placed over the lymphatic glands.
The Laserlipo machine will be turned on for 10 minutes, relocated and turned on for another 10 minutes and repeated for 30 minutes.
The treated area will then be measured to find out how many centimetres you lost.
You then do 10-minutes on a vibration plate or a cardiovascular exercise like the treadmill at the clinic or salon to help the venous system pick up the fatty liquids.
Is this treatment safe, does it hurt and what areas can I do?
Not only is the procedure safe but quick, pain-free and healthy.
You can do any part of your body, buttocks, arms, upper and lower back, inner and outer thighs etc.
We don’t do women's breasts.
How long does the treatment last and do I need to exercise or diet?
If clients eat sensibly and regularly, combined with exercise, the body shape will retain the effects of the Laserlipo treatment.
Straight after the Laserlipo treatment it is compulsory that every person does 10 to 20 minutes of exercise.
You can do exercise on our power plate machine or on the treadmill we have at the salon.
If you can't or don't want to exercise you can go for a sauna bed treatment.
After the treatment you need to drink lots of water and be careful of the portions you eat.
How long is a treatment and how many treatments can you do?
One treatment is 30 minutes.
You can do 1 treatment a week.
For the best results a course of 8 treatments is normally required.
How much does a treatment cost?
One single laser lipo treatment is normally R500.
And a beauty bed treatment is normally R200.
But we usually have specials running at the branches and both these treatments could cost you as little as R350.
This is 50% less than what they usually cost.
We have a mobile service where we come to you for a call out fee of R100-R150.
Under what conditions can’t I do these treatments?
Pregnant, Epilepsy, Children 16 years and under, Thyroid Gland Dysfunction
Hypertension, Pacemakers, Cancer, Radiation Therapy, Kidney / Liver Disorder
How does it work?
The Diode lipo laser machine emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them though channels in the cell membranes.
The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy.
This process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when the body needs to used stored energy reserves,
thus the Laser lipo treatment is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves.
A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.
Independent clinical studies have shown Laser lipo treatments to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction.
Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% 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.
Is Laser lipo treatments for me?
Laser lipo is suitable for both men and women of all ages, sizes and fitness levels.
