Your questions about Laser Lipo answered
Can anyone be treated with Laser Lipo?
If you are a healthy adult over the age of 18 and capable of performing a little regular exercise to burn off the ‘fuel’ released by the treatments, the answer is usually a resounding YES!
There are some medical conditions , or ‘contraindications’, that mean you CANNOT be treated with Laser Lipo at the Essex Laser Clinic.
To ensure the best interest of your health and to ensure there are no complications with your condition, people with the following conditions cannot be treated:
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Heart problems
- Radiation sickness or receiving radiation therapies
- Any form of cancer (even if in remission)
- Immune suppressed disorders
- Pregnancy or currently breast feeding
- Diabetes (type 1 – insulin dependent)
- Any dysfunction of the nervous system (e.g. muscular sclerosis, Parkinsons disease, motor neuron disease)
- Bell palsy
- Photosensitive skin disorder
If you suffer from any of the following conditions, you CAN be treated (with a signed disclaimer), but Essex Laser Clinic would strongly recommend you consult with your GP or consultant physician before commencing treatment.
- If you are an HIV carrier
- Diabetes (type 2)
- Recent surgery or minor operation (less than 6 weeks ago)
- Recent injury (awaiting treatment / surgery)
How many Laser Lipo Treatments will I need?
At the Essex Laser Clinic, we treat all clients on an individual basis. But a course of 2 treatments per week for 4-6 weeks will usually provide significant results.
You can have more than one course if required, but it is essential to have a 2 week gap between courses.
Can more than one area of the body be treated at a time?
Yes. By investing in the very latest LipoSculpt laser technology machine, Essex Laser Clinic can now comfortably treat more than one area of the body at a time. This is most effective if you are prepared to do more cardiovascular exercise between treatments.
What exercise should I do following a Laser Lipo Treatment?
Cardiovascular exercise is most effective in securing the best results from a course of Laser Lipo treatments. This will depend upon your fitness levels, but the aim is to get your heart rate up to the point of perspiring through exercise such as power walking, running, swimming, power plate, rowing machine etc…
How can I monitor the results of my Laser Lipo Treatment?
At the Essex Laser Clinic, we are results focused and like to share the excitement of our clients’ inch loss throughout each course of treatment. We will measure you after every Laser Lipo session and we will take ‘before and after’ photographs too.
Will the inches stay off after my Laser Lipo Treatment?
Yes, if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Your Essex Laser Clinic therapist will be able to provide tailored advice about the most effective post treatment regime for you.
