Laser 
and light technology are often used to help patients reduce fat and slim 
down.  
i-Lipo is a 
non-surgical procedure that utilizes low-level laser technology to break up fat 
cells and remove stubborn fat pockets. The treatment works best on the waist, 
thighs, hips, upper arms, and neck. The laser causes fat cells to break open, 
release their contents, and shrink in size. The contents of the fat cells are 
eliminated through the lymphatic system. The procedure lasts for an hour and is 
suitable for all skin types. The treatment does not require any anesthetic. 
Patients need a total of 8 sessions. Exercising right after the session can 
improve circulation and metabolism. Noticeable results will show up six months 
after the treatment. 
Zerona is a 
body contouring treatment that uses laser technology to remove excess fat. The 
treatment can target the chest, back, thighs, hips, and ankles. The laser 
utilizes cold-laser technology to puncture the fat cells. The cells release their 
fatty fluids that are excreted through the lymphatic system. The procedure is 
painless and will take 40 minutes to treat both the front and back of the body. 
Doctors recommend having a total of 6 sessions within two weeks. Results will 
gradually become more noticeable after a few weeks. 
SculpSure can 
remove stubborn fat pockets on the abdomen, back, thighs, and under the chin 
while tightening any lax skin. It uses diode-laser technology to penetrate the 
fat cells to remove them permanently. The treatment is painless. Practitioners 
will attach the device to the area being treated. The heat destroys the fat 
cells that are excreted through the lymphatic system. There may be some 
swelling and redness that will subside over time. Patients need to drink more fluids 
as it helps to remove the remaining fat cells. It is recommended to have at 
least two sessions, two months apart. The results will gradually appear over 
the next three months.
