Before Treatment

Before treatment of lipolaser try not eat large meals through the day and avoid eating 2 hours before.

Ensure areas have no been exposed to any prolonged periods in the sun as with any laser treatment sun greatly effects the result and can possibly cause harm.

Have a treatment plan. Meet with a dietitian or personal trainer and use all avenues to reach desired outcome. Fat cavitation is a very specific targeted treatment designed to aid the weight loss process and clients should use the treatment simply to aid the removal of stubborn fat rather than using it as the only form of fat removal.

During Treatment

Fat cavitation uses what is known as a cold laser which penetrates only a few millimetres beneath your skin, targeting the subcutaneous fat cells without risking damage to your organs. The laser pierces the fat cells temporarily to literally drain them, allowing some of the cells’ contents to drain into your lymphatic system in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are broken down, metabolized by the body, and eliminated in part through the urinary tract.

On average,  the procedure, will burn about 500 calories worth of fat which are released into your body from the specific areas you wish to be treated. As the calories are now in your body, its important to flush them appropriately to avoid them settling somewhere. We suggest at LaserLife that you attempt to refrain from eating for two hours prior and two hours after each treatment, so you will naturally burn up some of these calories.

After treatment:

Results can be seen immediately however multiple sessions are advised for maximum results. Eating a healthy, balanced diet and maintaining your new shape through regular exercise are also key. Those who already follow a healthy diet and regular exercise routine and are looking to eliminate those stubborn areas of fat are ideal candidates as are those who want to start off their weight-loss regimen with a little boost.

We also suggest that you drink plenty of water on the day of your treatment, avoid carbohydrates, and be sure to do some cardiovascular exercise to keep the body pumping the fluid immediately  after the treatment.

Teeth Whitening Post Care

To maximize your whitening results and avoid introducing stain, it is best to wait 48 hours after your whitening treatment before you consume any dark liquids, sauces, or foods.

The first couple of days after tooth whitening are the most critical. After whitening the pores or dentinal tubules are open and most susceptible to staining. For the best result we advise that you wait at least 36-48 hours to consume food or beverages that may stain teeth, those include anything that may stain a white T-shirt.
