Cold Lasers has been proven to assist with body contouring by removing body fat and reducing inches without invasive surgery. There are a few key steps to success that should be incorporated in order to achieve maximum results.
By following these steps every day, you will maximize your results for reducing body fat and excess inches. Begin the following protocol one to two weeks prior to starting your treatments; continue during your treatments and for as long as 2 weeks after your last treatment.
It is important to maintain the stated protocol for at least 2 weeks after your final treatment as 20-40% of your results will occur during this time.
Niacin – Regular Niacin (not flush-free or time released niacin). Purchase regular niacin (which is a B vitamin, specifically B3) in 100 mg. capsules. Take 1 capsule with water 30 minutes after you have eaten, taking a total of 400 mg per day. Do not take niacin on an empty stomach. Niacin may make you feel flushed, warm, and/or itchy for a short period of time.
Hydrate – Drink 100 fl. oz. of water each day (3 liters), with no more than 25 ounces in an hour. The released body fat needs to exit the body via the kidneys. Learn more about drinking enough water and your treatments.
Walk (Exercise) – Maintain your regular workout routine. If you do not workout, walk at least 10 minutes each day. We need exercise to stimulate the lymphatic system in order to help remove the fat through normal detox.
Compression Garments – such as Spanx or Under Armour should be worn as much as possible during all phases of the lipolaser treatments.
Eliminate Alcohol – completely. This allows your kidneys, liver and lymphatic systems to quickly purge the excess body fat.
Milk Thistle – 200 mg of milk thistle on a daily basis will help detox the liver helping the liver maximize the ultimate removal of the newly released emulsified fats and triglycerides.
No Caffeine – Caffeine causes dehydration which will inhibit elimination. If you do drink coffee, we ask that you add 2 additional ounces for each ounce of caffeinated beverage you have to drink. For example, if you drink one 10 oz. cup up coffee, it is recommended that one drinks 120 oz. of water that day.
Reduce Fat Intake – You’ll achieve the best results by following a low-fat diet during and after treatment. Here’s more information on why and how to eat a low-fat diet during treatment.
Watch for Constipation – The released body fat needs to exit the body via bowel movements. Therefore, it is important to eat plenty of fiber so as to avoid constipation.
Vibration Plate – Austin Body Contouring offers its patients the ability to use our vibration plate for 10 minutes after each lipolaser treatment. A vibration plate helps move the contents of the fat cells through the lymphatic system and subsequently out of the body through urination & bowel movements.
Sauna – Perspiration is a great way to release the fat from the body once the fat has been released from your fat cells.
Lymphatic Massage & Dry Brushing – Help move the newly released fat from the interstitial space through the body and eventually leaving the body through urination and bowel movements.
Keep Your Appointments – Disruption of the treatment cycle will cause your results to suffer. A minimum of 6 treatments is recommended for all patients.
There are no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time needed. Cold Lasers work by emulsifying adipose tissue which then releases into the interstitial space. The excess body fat is then passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification.
Cold Lasers treatments are six to nine treatment sessions, administered over a two-week period of time. For added results, discuss additional Cold Lasers treatments with your technician. Cold Lasers do not produce heat, it is completely non-invasive, and has never shown any recorded side effects. During the procedure, patients generally feel nothing.
After completion of the two-week protocol, clinical trials resulted in an average of 3.64 inches lost; with some patients losing as much as 9 inches. Many patients do not see noticeable results until after the last session. Don’t get discouraged and stay with the protocol. As with any procedure, results will and maybe more dramatic from one patient to the next.
When starting your treatments, you will be placed in a room and you will:
Cold Lasers are a clinically proven, non-invasive body contouring technique to remove fat and reduce inches. There are no known negative side effects from Cold Laser treatments; however, patients with certain medical conditions should not be treated with Cold Lasers.
Patients with the following conditions should NOT be treated:
Make certain that patients suffering from basal metabolic disorder (i.e. hypothyroid) are stable in order to ensure positive results.
If the patient has a cold, fever or otherwise compromised health it is best to postpone treatment until the patient is feeling better. This will optimize Zerona results.
Patients who have undergone liposuction will have varied results due to fat cells having been previously removed.
