How does a non-invasive Laser Lipo technology work? (click here for answer)
Non-invasive Laser Lipo technology works with a patented cold laser conductor. Originally designed to speed up healing, doctors noticed that the cold laser technology would also liquefy fat cells painlessly. In contrast to Liposuction, the non-invasive Laser Lipo does not remove the fat cell, it drains it. The fat can be drained by a healthy person’s lymphatic system reducing by a few inches each week. The Laser Lipo works by focusing the cold red laser which permeates to the fat cells and triggers the cell membrane to break and release the fat from the cells. It is safe, painless and completely non-invasive.
How is the Laser Lipo different from other contour treatments? (click here for answer)
There are other devices on the market that use ultrasound or radio frequency treatments, or the invasive type liposuction treatments. The Laser is completely non-invasive and the cold red laser cannot be felt or heard making the treatment extremely relaxing, quick and effective. The Laser Lipo also uses two probes that assist with lymphatic drainage to assist the body in flushing the fat and waste. Low level laser is often used for cell regeneration and pain relief so there are other benefits to this type of treatment that other devices do not deliver.

Where does the fat go? (click here for answer)
