Austin Body Contouring offers Zerona LipoLaser, an FDA Approved cold laser that drains the fat out of fat cells.
We do not believe in killing fat cells.
When you do kill a fat cell (like 95% of the procedures in the market today) should you gain weight at a later point, your new fat will have to “find a new place” on your body.
While it sounds good to have a permanent result in a desired area, should you gain weight, the new fat will go somewhere else, faster, since there are less fat cells in your body.
Look around and you will see people who have killed fat with procedures like:
and others. It’s not that they will look big, you will notice they are un-proportional. You have seen these people…..and now you know why they look that way.
And they probably looked great right after their procedure, until they gained weight later in life and saw the fat showing up in new and un-desirable areas on their body.
The technology behind Zerona LipoLaser 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.
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!
