Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lipo Laser?
A lipo laser is a non-invasive laser device that successfully reduces fat by delivering safe low level laser energy to a patient's problem areas. The Lapex 2000 is the only laser that uses paddles to specifically target the desired area and penetrate deeper into its fat layer, providing maximum treatment results.
How does it work?
Clinical studies have demonstrated that a LipoLaser stimulates the fat cell to liquefy the fat within it. The liquefied fat then moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane into the interstitial space, where it remains until it is absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in the treated fat cells becoming smaller, reducing inches in the treated areas. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
How much fat is released from a standard lipo laser treatment?
A standard treatment will release about 40-60 grams of fat.
What can I expect at my appointments?
The treatment is completely painless. During your treatment, you can expect to relax. There is no heat or any sensation whatsoever while being treated.
How is it different than liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes 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 under general anesthesia, with IV sedation, or with local anesthesia. In contrast, our treatment is 100% non-invasive. We use a low level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cell to release its contents. There is no use of anesthesia, nor is there any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles, or downtime.
How deep into tissue can a laser penetrate?
The depth of penetration of laser light depends on many parameters such as the laser’s wavelength, power, type of device driver (pulse or continuous wave mode), and the technique used.
Is there any downtime?
Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can resume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
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 healthily, exercise (walk at least 30 minutes a day), and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it, which can delay or decrease your results.
What areas of the body can I use a lipo laser on?
The treatment can be used effectively on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist. Most patients start with treating the waist, hips, and thighs which can all be targeted in one treatment. Other popular areas include upper arms, bra-line fat, inner knees, back , and buttocks.
Is it covered by insurance?
No, lipo laser treatments are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.
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, Lipo Dissolve, and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. The treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising or scarring. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used, and you can resume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Is it safe if I have a medical condition?
Yes, with two exceptions. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, lipo laser procedures should not be used. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker, this treatment may not be for you. There are no documented risks but potential unknown risks may exist. This procedure may not be as effective on patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders where the metabolic system is potentially impaired.
Are there any side effects?
A. No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
Is it effective?
Yes, with the treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success.
How long do results last?
By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results. This procedure is ideal for two types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or those who want to use the procedure and the recommended lifestyle protocol to jump start their slimming efforts.
Can I do the procedure multiple times? And how soon after my last treatment can I do a second treatment?
Yes, with additional treatments you can expect to see improved results. You can start an additional series of treatments immediately following your last treatment.
How soon after pregnancy can I do it?
It is recommended that you wait until after your last postpartum visit with your doctor (usually 6 weeks after birth) to begin your treatment. It is not recommended if you are breastfeeding.
Is everyone a good candidate for the treatment?
Most are good candidates. Even people who are not overweight can lose inches. Be sure to discuss your health background with your physician and ask any questions about your particular areas of concern.
When can I expect to see the results?
Sometimes results are seen almost immediately. Typically the results are seen up to about one week after completion of your treatment.
Why take my measurements?
To be able to gauge your progress, we take your measurements before and after the procedures.
