THE SCIENCE...

The Laser Lipo Diodes emit low level laser energy, which penetrates the skin to a depth of approximately 8-9mm.

This is just deep enough to reach the subcutaneous fat layer. The membranes (cell walls) of the fat cells (known as 'Adipocytes') are disrupted and develope tiny pores (holes)releasing the contents into the space between the fat cells (the 'interstitial space').

The contents of the fat cells (fatty acids, triglycerides and water) spill out from the broken cell membranes and are released into the interstitial space. This mechanism of action is not 'liquefaction of fat', it is the instant emptying out of the cells rather than the destruction of them. (referred to as Lipolysis)

The intra-cellular fat causes the cell to lose its round shape by changing the permeability of the cell membrane. This does not affect the neighbouring structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. When you undertake some form of exercise to raise your heart rate you increase your metabolic rate.

The body will use the fuel available in your bloodstream, which includes the fatty acids and triglycerides released by the Laser Lipo treatment.

Once the 'fuel' in the bloodstream has been used up, your liver will begin to target the remaining fat deposits (starting with the most easily broken down- the treated areas) for further 'fuel'. Therefore, the more exercise you undertake between sessions- the better your results will be.
