How much does laser lipo cost?
Liposuction is a technique that removes fat from the belly, thighs, neck, and arms using an invasive method. There is, however, another technique to lose weight that does not require surgery or even downtime. Noninvasive laser lipo is a procedure that uses laser energy instead of incisions to shrink the body fast and with little effort on the patient’s part.
WHAT IS LASER LIPO AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Unlike traditional liposuction, the goal of noninvasive laser lipo is to reduce fat cells rather than remove them.
During each i-Lipo—the kind of laser-lipo device used by Advanced Laser Body Care—session, a technician applies laser-diode-equipped pads directly onto the skin. The laser energy pierces the fat cells’ membranes and makes microscopic holes in them. This causes fat cells to discharge stored fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body before shrinking and perhaps losing inches. The ejected fat-cell contents are subsequently flushed out via the lymphatic system or burned for energy.
Heather suggests imagining your fat cells as clusters of luscious grapes. “When the laser beam reaches the fat cell, the contents shrink, and the grapes turn into raisins.”
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM LASER LIPO?
Because laser lipo isn’t appropriate for considerable weight loss, the pool of ideal candidates is a little narrower than for traditional lipo. If you’re in the following situations, it might be perfect for you:
You’re only approximately 25 pounds overweight
Rather than total-body weight loss, “problem zones” are more important.
In good health and with supple skin

HOW DOES THE LIPO LASER PROCESS WORK?
Heather says, “You’re going to be really relaxed.” “We’ll put you in a beautiful little cocoon to assist speed up that metabolic process,” says the doctor.
The technician then places the pads on the desired location and infuses it with laser energy for 10 to 20 minutes. They can then relocate the pads to another place and repeat the procedure if necessary. That’s all there is to it. You may notice a difference right away, but you’ll need to come back for the finest effects.
Here are a few quick facts about the suggested cycle:
Timetable for treatment
Though some clients show effects after just a few sessions, the majority take 6–8 treatments to achieve the best outcomes.
It is suggested that you have two treatments per week for four weeks.
There is no downtime because the procedure is non-invasive.
WHAT IS THE COST OF LASER LIPO?
The cost of laser lipo varies significantly based on the size of the area to be treated, as well as your location and the clinic’s experience. A normal eight-session series can easily cost over $1,000. Look for one of our laser weight-loss treatment specials, which can save you a lot of money. A typical bargain from us can cost roughly $50 for a single treatment, or $30–$50 per treatment if you buy numerous sessions.
ZERONA VS. I-LIPO
There are a lot of trade names for different laser body-contouring procedures, and talking about them might be confusing because they’re sometimes (incorrectly) used interchangeably. The i-Lipo and the Zerona, two popular laser devices, both use low-level laser light in their nonsurgical lipo treatments, but they’re not quite the same.
The i-Lipo gadget, which comes in the shape of pads, has more than 30 laser diodes and is applied directly to the skin. The Zerona device, on the other hand, hovers just over the skin and utilizes only 5 diodes. Some argue that while the Zerona is more comfortable, the i-Lipo is more effective. However, there isn’t much agreement on this topic.
