FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ’S)

• HOW DOES IT WORK?  The Lipo-Laser emulsifies fat and causes the cell membrane to become temporarily porous. The fat then leaks out of the cells and into the interstitial spaces around the cells. There is no damage to the cell membrane since the fat is expelled through the transitory pore. Once the fat is in the interstitial space it is naturally removed from the body through the lymphatic system and then the digestive system.

• HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE?  Independent FDA results using the Lipo-Laser found an average circumference loss of 1/2" to 3" per treatment.  Please remember that individuals are different so results will vary.  The success of the session depends on your body's ability to detoxify emulsified cellular debris.

• ARE THERE ANY RISKS?  There are no known risks associated with low-level cold laser therapy. This treatment causes no discomfort before, during or after the treatment.

• IS LIPO LASER PAINFUL?  The Lipo-Laser is applied externally and the session is completely pain free. There is no anesthesia, no incisions, no needles, no healing, no recovery time and no downtime.

• WHERE CAN I GET LIPO LASER ON MY BODY?  Common requests include the waist, hips, thighs, buttock, upper arm and chin. 

• WILL FAT DEPOSIT SOMEWHERE ELSE?  Fat removed by the laser is metabolized and removed by the body. There is no evidence that this fat deposits elsewhere.

• DO I HAVE TO DIET?  The Lipo-Laser procedure is not a program for losing weight or a cure for obesity. The Lipo-Laser is a fantastic way to remove inches in specific problem areas such as the waist, hips, thighs, buttock, arms or chin.  It is site specific and not the best way to lose weight all over the body.  However, for some it may be a great way to "kick start" new lifestyle changes including good nutrition and proper exercise.

• CAN THE FAT RETURN?  The Lipo-Laser does not damage or remove the fat cell from the body.  When the fat leaves the cells, the cells remain intact and collapse to their "unloaded" size. Think of it as "a grape turning into a raisin".  If poor diet and lifestyle habits continue and greater calories are eaten than expended through activity then the body will store the excess calories and the fat cells may begin to retain fat again.  Long-term results will best be achieved through a healthy and active lifestyle. 

• HOW MANY SESSIONS CAN I DO?  Many clients choose to do multiple sessions.  For example, after successful results on the waist, hips and thighs some clients want to go on to their arms and chin.  Other clients simply want to continue to work on the same region.  There have been no contraindications or side effects found from continued treatments. 

• WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?  Some clients notice results immediately after the very first session.  It is not uncommon that 1/2" or more is lost in the very first session.  Each individual is different and it depends on how long it takes the fat to work its way through your digestive system and out of the body.  

• IS THIS COVERED BY INSURANCE?  This procedure in not covered by insurance as it is not considered "medically necessary".
