Nonsurgical Weight Loss: How Much Weight Can You Lose?

Non-Surgical Fat Reduction: How Many Inches Can You Lose?

If you’re one of the millions of individuals who have tried to diet and exercise your inches away to no avail, you may have started to explore various invasive and non-invasive medical fat reduction procedures. Some of these options may seem drastic, cost-prohibitive, and even a little dangerous. Liposuction, for instance, is a surgical procedure that can require weeks of recovery time. Gastric bypass is another surgical option that comes with a hefty price tag and an in-patient hospital stay. Both procedures require the use of a general anesthetic and involve surgery.

But what if you were to learn of an effective, virtually painless, non-surgical procedure that can be performed in under an hour per session with no downtime after? Laser lipolysis is an effective, FDA-approved process that doesn’t involve surgery, anesthetic, or recovery time. It’s so quick that you can schedule an appointment before or after work — even on your lunch break. Read more to find out how this revolutionary non-surgical fat-reduction procedure is helping people like you literally melt their fat away.

An Overview of the Laser Fat Reduction Procedure

Often referred to as “laser lipo” or “cold-laser sculpting,” laser lipolysis involves the use of low-intensity lasers to melt the fat lipids within fat cells. The laser lightly heats the solidified fat, emulsifying or melting it. The liquified lipids are then released into the body, where it is dispensed with naturally via the lymphatic system. The fat cells eventually die off, and they are disposed of naturally as well.

Most clients only feel a slight tingling while undergoing the laser fat removal process. Those who do experience some reaction claim that it’s only a mild sensation, similar to feeling the snap of a rubber band against the skin. When you’re done, you can get up and leave without any aftereffects. Over the course of the next 12 weeks, you gradually lose fat. Most people see noticeable results within 6 weeks.

It’s important to note that fat reduction and weight loss are not always synonymous. It’s possible to gain weight while losing fat. When most people say that they want to lose weight, they really mean that they would prefer to reduce fat, altering the contours of their body. This is what the EON body-contouring laser is so effective at. Clinical study patients had 21.6% fat loss after just one one-hour session. This generally equates to a one to two inch reduction of waist circumference 12 weeks post treatment.

Why Avoiding Surgical Procedures Is a Good Idea

Do you know that it takes four to six weeks after liposuction to return to full physical activity? It takes two to four weeks to recover after you have gastric sleeve surgery, and gastric bypass surgery, which is more involved, can take even longer. All of these surgical procedures require incisions, anesthetic, and a significant amount of risk. If your recovery is normal, you may miss weeks or even a month of life. Depending on the type of job you have, you may have to stay home from work during your recovery time. Scarring may last indefinitely.

Surgery can take its toll on your body, but Body Details laser fat removal (aka: Laser Lipo) will allow you to reshape your body with minimal inconvenience.

Laser Lipo: Expected Results and Fat Reduction

Your initial laser lipo consultation at Body Details is free. During this consultation, your laser fat-loss consultant will discuss your goals with you and provide you with a realistic set of expectations from your course of treatment. If you opt for this non-surgical fat-loss treatment, you will undergo one to several 20-60 minute sessions, the length of time depending on your BMI and body contours.

Part of your treatment is ensuring that you keep the fat off once you’ve achieved your goals. Your consultant will also provide you with health and nutritional information to ensure that you keep your body fat low and your contours shapely.

Fat Loss with Laser Lipo

The amount of fat you can lose with laser lipolysis depends both on your individual body type and number of sessions. This process is particularly effective for abdominal fat. Individual body type aside, the clinical study demonstrated fat loss averages of 21% of the fat around your belly, and even more in the lower abdomen with 24% average fat loss. Because of the unique way that laser lipo diminishes fat, it’s in your best interest to discuss your goals with your Body Details consultant during your free initial consultation. When they’re familiar with your body contours and dietary habits, they can do a better job of estimating your anticipated results.

Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Lipo

At Body Details, we recognize that any fat loss procedure can be intimidating if you’re unfamiliar with it. Please read these frequently asked questions and answers and contact us if you require additional information. We’re happy to walk you through the EON laser fat reduction process.

What Type of Laser Do You Use?

Body Details uses the Dominion Aesthetic EON body sculpting device. This is a sophisticated system that combines a 1064 nanometer laser, simultaneous cooling, and robotic mechanics to provide a touchless treatment. That means that gels and lubricants are unnecessary. The laser gently kills the fat cells with mild heating. The EON laser typically demonstrates visible results within six weeks and full results after 12 weeks.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

While the fat-reduction process starts immediately, it is gradual. You may not walk out of our laser center seeing an immediate difference. However, over the course of the next two or three weeks, you will see a gradual reduction. After several sessions, you’ll feel like a new person. By the end of 12 weeks, you may see dramatic results.

Why Does Laser Lipo Take Multiple Sessions?

Every time you have a session, the laser melts fat and destroys fat cells. However, most people have several layers of fat cells around their abdomen. As you go from session to session, the laser reaches deeper fat cells.

How Often Can I Get Laser Lipo?

There is no required downtime period between treatments. However, for optimal results, we recommend allowing up to two weeks between sessions to allow your body to recover at a cellular level.

Will I Lose Weight With Laser Fat Reduction?

Yes, you will lose some weight as your body sheds the excess fat. However, it’s important to recognize that this treatment focuses on fat loss instead of weight loss. You should notice an overall reduction in your size, and that’s what will give you the appearance that you want.

How Does Laser Lipolysis Compare to Cold Sculpting?

Both procedures are non-invasive and achieve similar results. Many patients find laser lipolysis to be superior to fat freezing because fat freezing involves contact with paddles that are chilled to 39 – 41 degrees Fahrenheit. That can be extraordinarily uncomfortable and damaging to the epidermis. The EON body contouring laser, on the other hand, is fast and relatively painless. It does not require physical touch.
