Is the Laser Treatment safe?
The laser treatment is 100% non-invasive, with no known harmful side effects
Who is the ideal candidate?
The laser treatment is the ideal treatment for all body types when combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle. It works synergistically with the body’s natural weight loss mechanisms. It specifically targets troublesome areas to remove inches.
How many laser treatments do I need for each spot?
Typically people do 9 visits depending on how many inches they want to lose off their body.
Where Can the Laser Treatment Be Used?
The laser treatment offers a safe and effective spot fat reduction solution that can be applied to a multiple of problem areas:
- Mid and lower abdomen
- Upper mid and lower back
- Buttocks and thigh areas
- Arms and underarms
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Most patients will see measurable results after their first treatment. The standard treatment protocol consists of three, 40-50 minute treatment sessions every week for 3 weeks. Best results are achieved when utilizing the whole body vibration equipment for 10 minutes immediately after the treatment.
How Many Inches Can I Expect To Loose?
In a Double Blind study, participants who completed a nine series treatments lost an average of 3 to 7 inches around their waistline. The best results were received from patients who also participated in a healthy diet and exercise.
What was the Laser designed to do?
The laser treatment was designed to specifically address spot fat reduction or inch loss and body contouring. It is administered in relaxing 40-50 minute sessions. There is no surgery or pain or extensive recovery time.
How Does The laser treatment Work?
The laser energy safely penetrates the skin targeting the fat cells (Subcutaneous layer). Once the cells are permeated, they release fatty acids, water and glycerol, or triglycerides. The triglycerides are released from the fat cells and the body uses them as an energy source. The fat cells then “shrink” significantly resulting in inch loss and the removal of cellulite.
What is the vibration platform?
- The vibration platform causes increased local circulation to targeted areas, in turn giving the visible cellulite area a “smoother” look.
- The vibration platform works from the inside out. Waste products are expelled at the cellular, lymphatic and excretion level.
- The vibration platform stimulates all cells in the body, increases blood flow and oxygen intake and stimulates metabolism to help flush out toxins.
What to Expect During a Treatment
You can relax in a comfortable position while a laser technician secures the multi-diode paddles and EN probes to the target area. In 10 minute intervals, you are free to relax, read and listen to music.
What Happens After a Treatment?
You are free to resume normal activities immediately after each session—including exercise. Remember: the laser treatment is safe, non-invasive and you will experience no pain or side effects.
Does the Low Level Laser Therapy (laser treatment) emit heat?
No. The treatment uses a cold laser technology that emits no heat, sound or vibrations. You may feel a small amount of heat from the laser paddles. This heat comes from the power source, not the laser.
What happens as the laser hits the fatty tissue?
The laser disrupts the external membrane of the fat cell, inducing lipolysis.
What is released during treatment?
Water, Glycerol, and Free Fatty Acids.
Where do the Free Fatty Acids go?
Once the free fatty acids leave the cell and enter the interstitial space, it is then absorbed by the lymphatic system. Additionally, when combined with oxygen, Free Fatty Acids produce energy.
Where does Glycerol go?
Glycerol diffuses widely and rapidly throughout the total body water, passes through the blood stream and appears in the urine. Additionally, glycerol is converted by the liver into a useful energy source—Glucose.
Are there any harmful side effects or contraindications?
The Lapex BCS (laser treatment) is non-invasive with no harmful side effects. The contraindications include pregnancy, epilepsy, cancer and patients with pacemakers in addition to a few other medical conditions the doctor will screen for.
What are the benefits of laser treatment?
Non-surgical, non-evasive, safe, natural, pain-free, no downtime, no side effects, spot reduces areas that exercise and diet can’t.
What are the Contraindications for the laser treatment?
There are 11 known Contraindications (health conditions the Doctor will screen) for the laser treatments:
3) Immune Disorders
4) Thyroid Disorders
5) Uncontrolled Hypertension
6) Pace Maker
7) Heart Disease
8) Irregular Hart Beat
9) Liver Disorder
10) Kidney Disorder
If the patient has one of the following Contraindications, the doctor will determine if it is a concern or not.
What is the Protocol?
The patient protocol is as follows:
1) 40 minutes of laser treatments (up to 80 min for thighs)
2) 10 minutes on the vibration platform
3) 48 hours between treatments (e.g. Monday, Wed)
This gives the body time to process the Triglycerides that were released
What can I do to achieve the best results?
There are several things the patient can do to achieve maximum results:
1) Detox for 1 week prior to your laser treatment
2) Monitor and be careful how many calories you take in vs. how many calories you burn.
3) Exercise. Although the laser releases the Triglycerides from inside the Fat Cell, exercising will continue to
body to dispose the Triglycerides out of your body.
4) Lymphatic Wrap. A Lymphatic Body wrap will clean the Lymphatic system out allowing the Triglycerides to exit the
body more easily.
