Laser Therapy is Effective at Reducing Waist Fat

Among the several outpatient services available at DeBruin Medical Center is the LipoLaser System. This low-level laser therapy uses innovative technology to decrease unwanted belly fat. LipoLaser, a proven form of cosmetic therapy, is offered to both patients and non-patients of DeBruin Medical Center. Among the many benefits of non-invasive laser procedures are quick recovery times, minimal side effects, and visible results.

Unlike some cosmetic interventions, LipoLaser’s efficacy has been proven in a peer-reviewed, scientific journal. In a 2011 article entitled “Efficacy of Low-Level Laser Therapy for Body Contouring and Spot Fat Reduction” in the journal Obesity Surgery, the LAPEX 2000 LipoLaser System led to both safe and significant reductions of stomach fat for the study subjects. Over the course of eight treatments during a four-week period, the 20 participants in the active group lost over two centimeters of waist girth.

In addition to the objective improvements of weight loss, those involved in this research reported a substantial cosmetic improvement in the way they looked and felt. The LipoLaser System at DeBruin offers cumulative and sustainable body contouring that is safe, proven, and effective.

DeBruin Medical Center on Cosmetic Lipolaser Treatments

Increasingly, lipolaser treatments are becoming a popular option for busy professionals seeking spot fat reduction and body contouring. Lipolaser is a noninvasive procedure that uses a cold conductor to cause pores in the fat cell to release water, glycerol, and free fatty acids, thus shrinking the fat cell with no surgery. The process requires several visits to the doctor, with most people going three times per week for three weeks. There is no downtime and patients can resume normal activity as soon as they leave the office.

Through lipolaser, patients can expect to see results as early as the second or third treatment. The procedure is safe and can target specific areas of the body, leaving other areas untouched. In addition to body contouring and spot fat reduction, weight loss can be a secondary effect of lipolaser in many cases. Each visit takes about 30 minutes and can be done right in the doctor’s office.

Choosing LipoLaser Treatment at DeBruin Medical Center

At Orangevale, California’s DeBruin Medical Center, Dr. Mark DeBruin offers clients conventional and community care medicine. Recently, Dr. DeBruin added a laser center to his facility, and he now provides state-of-the-art cosmetic LipoLaser treatments. Moreover, he has the only Yolo Curve LipoLaser in Sacramento, representing the lastest in LipoLaser technology

Using the Yolo Curve LipoLaser, Dr. DeBruin performs noninvasive body contouring and spot fat reduction at his office, The nonsurgical procedures result in no pain or downtime. The semi-conducting, low-intensity, four-paddle diode laser enables clients to get the results they want from liposuction without the pain or recovery time, and with a substantially reduced risk. With the new LipoLaser, patients undergo 30-minute sessions, rather than 40 to 50 minutes with the old technology. Patients can reduce their waist size by more than two inches. The device functions by heating fat cells through the skin until they release their fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the bloodstream. After losing these elements, the fat cells shrink.

When undergoing LipoLaser treatments, doctors recommend ingesting detox and cleanse products and exercising for at least a half-hour three times per week. On the day of the session, patients should drink lots of water before and after each treatment. They should also refrain from eating any food two hours prior to and subsequent to the appointment.
