Strawberry Laser Lipo FAQs
an FDA approved laser treatment that targets the fatty layer under the skin, and results in instant fat reduction.
How does the Strawberry Laser work?
When the laser paddles are placed on the skin, the Class 3B laser beams penetrates the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat (9-13mm). When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events takes place. Firstly, pores form on the cells causing them to spill out. The water, Glycerol and fatty acids move into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin. Then further water, fatty acids and Glycerol spill out. The adipocyte cells reduce in size. This disruption does not affect the neighboring structures such as the skin, blood vessels or nerves. The lymphatic system then removes the fat through the liver and kidneys, where they are processed in the same way as fatty foods, the rest is passed out in the urine.

What type of results do you typically see?
Average loss is 3.7 inches around the treated area after 8 sessions, so if you did 8 sessions around the stomach you’d expect to see 3.7 inches off the stomach. You’ll see instant loss after one session, however 8 sessions are usually recommended for best results.
How long do results last?
The results will last as long as you maintain them with healthy diet and exercise. You will see results without any changes to diet and exercise, however if you’re eating poorly and not exercising the fat can come back.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a course of 8 treatments. Typically two treatments each week for 4 weeks.
Can I have more than one course?
Yes but it is essential to have a two week gap between courses.
Can I have more than one area treated at one time?
Yes. However you must be prepared to do more cardio vascular exercise.
Will the inches stay off after a treatment?
Yes. Providing you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
What actually happens to the fat?
The fat cells are undamaged; but due to the reaction of the laser light on the cell it will empty the contents. The contents consist of water, glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment, the glycerol is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids, through the lymphatic system, through the liver and kidneys and are then passed out of the body in your urine.
Does the treatment hurt?
No. There is no pain at all. You will feel a comfortable warm feeling in the area being treated. Zero pain and zero discomfort. Some people actually fall asleep during a treatment.
Will I have to keep coming back to keep my results?
No. The results are permanent provided of course that you can retain a sensible lifestyle. Healthy eating and an exercise plan will ensure that the inch loss is retained.
How can I monitor my results?
At every session you will be weighed and measured and you will be photographed before your first treatment and following your last. This way you will know exactly how many inches you have lost. In addition, you will feel that your clothes are looser and see a visual reduction.
Recommendations for the best results:
No eating for two hours prior to treatment. A small amount of liquids (water, coffee, etc.) is ok. No cream, sugar, or fruit juices please.
Wear comfortable clothing. Also wear tight fitting underwear (panties, brief type).
No lotions or moisturizers near the area that you wish to be treated.
Be prepared to exercise within the next twelve hours to help the lymphatic system remove the free fatty acid cells from the body.
Drink plenty of water, this helps the body clear out the expelled contents of the fat cells.
Exercise within 4-6 hours after the treatment. This increases the body’s circulation, and will also help expel the contents of the broken down fat cells.
Avoid foods that are high in fat and/or sugar following each session. This will improve results.
NO ALCOHOL 24 hours before, and 48 hours after each session. Alcohol slows down the body’s ability to filter out and expel the fatty acids from the fat cells.
