SLIMMING

Fat is arranged in large cavities underneath a relatively thin layer of skin. These cavities are separated by columns of collagen fibers. In obese or overweight people, too much fat is being compressed into these cavities, causing the bulging and pitting of the skin. Cellulite is mostly common in women but can also be found in men, up to 95% of women have cellulite. One reason many women get cellulite is because hormones play a massive part in the formation of cellulite and weight gain. Loose skin can occur through a number of different things including weight loss, post pregnancy and a lack of collagen in the skin causing it to sag. This can happen all over the body – mainly in the face, stomach, buttocks, arms and thighs.

Laser Lipolysis

Laser Lipolysis or ‘Laser Lipo’ emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides (a type of fat found in your blood) into free fatty acids and glycerol, releasing them through channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy

What results can be achieved?

Immediate results can be achieved after your treatment. Typically a 2-3cm loss in the abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. Results vary between clients.

How many treatments will I need?

a course of 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week. Results vary depending on the size fatty deposit. Another course of 8 may be needed for larger areas.

What will happen during my treatment?

During the Laser Lipo session your highly trained therapist will firstly measure the area wanting to be treated. We will then give you specially designed glasses that block out the laser light. Next we will strap the area and place the Lipo paddles onto the skin, making sure they are secured with the straps. The treatment goes for 30 minutes in which our therapist will leave you to relax and will check on you throughout the treatment. When the Laser Lipo session has come to an end, we will unstrap you and re-measure the area.

What will happen after my treatment?

The liquified fat cells will expel through urine and sweat. It is essential to drink at least 2L of water each day and exercise within 12 hours post treatment.
