At Austin Body Contouring, we have two types of LipoLasers: Zerona and Lapex. Both are completely painless, FDA Approved, and use cold laser technology to drain fat out of cells.
Thousands have tried our LaserLipo procedures as an alternative to invasive procedures like Smart Lipo and liposuction, and have lost an average of 3.64 inches around the waist. Imagine going from a large to a medium, or a medium to a small, just by relaxing for sixty minutes, a few times a week.
Both Zerona and Lapex are completely safe, painless, and require ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used, and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment. Both are also FDA approved!
The cold laser technology behind the Zerona procedure was shown to exclusively release the cellular contents of fat cells while leaving the capillaries and other cells within the interstitial space intact. The release of the fat cell contents is the result of the disruption of the cell’s membrane. This membrane disruption, called a transitory pore, is the result of low-level laser stimulation.
Lapex similarly uses laser energy that safely penetrates the patients skin at a specific wavelength (658 nm) targeted for adipose (fat) cells. Adipose cells are permeated releasing Free Fatty Acids (FFA’s), Water and Glycerol. Together these compounds are also called Triglycerides. Triglycerides are normally released from fat cells when the body needs energy. Once released the Glycerol and Free Fatty Acids are used by the body as an energy source. Adipose cells “shrink” significantly resulting in inch loss for the patient.
Exercise or a 10 minute Whole Body Vibration (complimentary at Austin Body Contouring) session is recommended immediately post laser treatment to burn the released FFA’s within the body and helps stimulate the lymphatic system.
Traditional Liposuction is an invasive procedure that surgically removes fat cells from areas such as the stomach, thighs, arms, neck, etc. This procedure often requires a lot of recovery time and can be quite painful.
LipoLaser treatments on the other hand, are completely painless, have no downtown time, and shrinks fat cells instead of removing them. Why does that matter?
Let’s say you gain weight after getting liposuction on your stomach. Since liposuction completely removes fat cells, the fat has no cells to go back to on your stomach. Great, no fat on my stomach, right?
But that fat has to go somewhere, so it will unproportionally go to where there are still fat cells: your thighs, butt, arms, back, etc. Since LipoLasers don’t remove fat cells, if you were to gain weight back, it will at least be proportionate. Gaining 10 pounds spread proportionately over your body is far less noticeable than gaining 10 pounds in only your thighs or back.
Coolsculpting® is less invasive than traditional liposuction, but it kills fat cells, so you run into the same issue of gaining weight back unproportionally.
Coolsculting® is more expensive than our LipoLaser treatments, and many people say it can be quite painful. It also takes quite a few months to start noticing results. Many of our clients have reported seeing results the same day!
While both Zerona and Lapex are both highly effective lipolaser treatments, there are several differences. One may work better than the other for you. Please call 512-660-2810 to set up your complimentary consultation, and we’d be happy to help walk you through your options.
