For many people getting rid of excess fat can be a lifelong battle. Whether it’s excess love handles, excess fat around the knees or or flabby upper arms, pockets of fat can be difficult to reduce and sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to make a noticeable difference. Now many medical professionals have found a non-invasive highly effective method to spot reduce fat though Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT or LipoLaser). This break though has opened the door to many individuals who would have never before considered spot fat removal an option. FDA approved LipoLaser achieves the body contouring, fat removing results of liposuction without the pain and risk of a surgical procedure.
This ground breaking technology has not gone unnoticed. National media programs, “The Rachael Ray Show”, “CNN”, “The Dr. Oz Show”,and the “Doctors” have touted it’s safety and effectiveness. To get the Skinny on LipoLaser we turned to local expert Dr. Aaron Bronson, DC owner of The Good Life Center in Jupiter, Fl.
What is LipoLaser?
Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that a low level LipoLaser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
Is it safe?
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the low-level laser therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipo dissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. With the LipoLaser there is proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced. The treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
How is it different than liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia. In contrast, LipoLaser is a 100% non-invasive that uses a low level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cell and emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles and no downtime.
Does LipoLaser emit heat?
Low Level Laser Therapy used in LipoLaser is a light source treatment that generates light of a signal wavelength. Low Level Laser Therapy emits no heat, sound, or vibration. Instead of producing a thermal effect, Low Level Laser Therapy acts via nonthermal or photochemical reactions in the cells, also referred to as photobiological or biostimulatory.
Are there any limitations to what I can do if I’m using a LipoLaser?
No. During the treatment period you can continue your normal activities. It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the treatment protocol: stay hydrated (8-10 glasses of water a day), continue to eat healthy and exercise (use Whole Body Vibration for 20 minutes after treatment) and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it which can decrease your results.
What areas of the body can LipoLaser be used?
The treatment can be used effectively on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips and thighs which can all be targeted
in 1 treatment. Other areas include upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back fat and buttocks.
The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
