See the full effect of your Laser Weight Control treatment after a full course of 8 sessions. However, it is possible to see dramatic results right away! Depending on the area, and many other factors, your body may lose several inches instantly. When the laser paddles are placed on the skin, the cold red laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events takes place. Firstly, pores form on the cells. Then 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 of the fat cells. The adipocyte cells are therefore reduced in size. This method does not affect the neighboring structures such as the skin, blood vessels or nerves. The lymphatic system then removes the fat, where they are processed in the same way as fatty foods that are digested. Patients are encouraged to engage in vigorous cardio vascular exercise in the day following their procedure to assist their lymphatic system in flushing the excess out of the body.
