Fat lasers are all the buzz today. Now you don’t have to wait for the body of your dreams, and you don’t have to work out until you drop or starve yourself either.
Fat lasers specialize in spot fat reduction with comfort and ease. You can expect a 10% reduction in the size of the body part in just 12 sessions.
What happens when Low Level Lasers (Lapex BCS) hits the subcutaneous fatty tissue (adipocytes)?
A low-power laser of semiconductor diode type, with a 658-nm wavelength, is able to disrupt the external membrane of the fat cell, inducing lipolysis. After four minutes of laser exposure, 80% of the fat is released from the adipose cells; at six minutes of laser exposure, 99% of the fat is released from the adipocytes.
The released fat is then collected in the interstitial space.
Are there any side effects?
No. Lapex BCS is a safe and effective low-level laser device.
However, the laser must never be projected directly into the eyes.
