It is not a surgical procedure.
Lipolysis uses laser therapy to remove accumulations of fat deposits in specific regions of the body. It is an innovative, gentle, non-surgical treatment which breaks down fat cells in a particular area; these cells are then excreted by the body. To encourage the excretion it is suggested that at least 2 litres of water is consumed, a calorie controlled diet is followed, and exercise is undertaken. It is not for large areas, it is for those stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise alone. It is an extremely effective treatment if the proper pre and post treatment advice is followed. It is non-surgical and there is no downtime.
Small stubborn ares of fat accumulation like double chins, love handles, inner thighs, outer thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, arms – those areas that are difficult to eradicate with exercise and diet alone. It is not a treatment for obesity but rather for reduction of localised areas of fat and skin tightening.
The area to be treated will be marked for reference, measured and recorded. Pads that are linked to the laser machine are applied to the area being treated. A little heat sensation is felt. There is no pain at all. When the pads are removed the area may appear a little red.
Immediately after the treatment, the area is measured and recorded. In 99% of cases, there is an immediate reduction in measurement. This can only be sustained by you following an aftercare protocol.
The sensation from the pads may feel uncomfortably warm. There is no pain.
Drink lots of water. If at all possible do about 20 – 30 minutes exercise immediately after the treatment. Follow a reasonable diet that is low in calories.
NB: This requires at least 6 sessions of treatment.
