Strawberry Laser is a treatment performed at True MD Med Spa in Lakeland by our body-contouring specialists. Unlike liposuction, SmartLipo and CoolSculpting, the Strawberry Laser is a non-invasive laser treatment allowing you to shed inches in minutes! The device involves low-level laser diode panels that are belted around a person’s waist for a series of 10-20 minute sessions. The portability & flexibility of the Strawberry Laser belt allows for the treatment of just about any problem area. This includes removing unwanted fat in the back, arms, belly, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees and chest (gynecomastia).
HOW IT WORKS
When the paddle belt that is wrapped around the targeted area contains a Class 2, 3B laser. These beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the fatty layer. Once the Strawberry Laser light hits the fat or the adipocyte cells in this layer, a rapid chain of events takes place. Pores form on top of the fat cells, allowing them to release water, glycerol and fatty acids into the interstitial space located underneath the fatty layer of the skin. As the contents of the fat cells spill out, the adipocyte cells reduce in size. This reaction does not affect any of the neighboring structures such as the skin, blood vessels or nerves and it is completely painless. The lymphatic system then does the rest of the work by removing the fat through the liver and kidneys, where it is processed and passed out in the urine. We recommend use of the Strawberry Laser’s technology in a series of 8 treatments. This is because with each treatment the laser is able to penetrate the layer of the fat deeper and deeper, which gives you better results.
STRAWBERRY & CREAM LASER TREATMENT
Upon arrival and prior to your first treatment, our body-contouring specialists will assess your candidacy by reviewing your medical history and discussing your goals and expectations in your complimentary consultation. It is essential that you have realistic expectations regarding what results can be achieved by the Strawberry Laser system. We also want to teach our clients how diet and exercise will effect their results. After your consultation we will schedule a time for you to come back into our office for treatment at which time you will be prepped. We will weigh you prior to every treatment to track your results. Next you will be measured in several places– we may use a marker/pen to ensure that the exact same area is measured every time you come in for treatment and before and after every treatment. Lastly, you will be photographed both before and after every treatment to help provide a visual to you and our specialists while tracking your inch-loss progress. The results are sure to stun you!
During the treatment, you will be pampered to feel relaxed. Much like a blanket, we will wrap the laser belt(s) around the area(s) getting treated and leave the room for the designated time frame, usually between 10-20 minutes. Many patients admit to falling asleep as the belt feels like a warm blanket. Although there is no recovery time, patients are encouraged to exercise after every treatment to help kick-start the lymphatic system in disposing of the fat.
STRAWBERRY LASER RESULTS
The Strawberry Laser results are typically achieved after just one visit or seen in about a week, and will continue to drastically improve with more treatments in a series. Results are permanent as long as the patient continues to eat healthy & exercise. To find out if you are a candidate for the Strawberry Laser, contact True MD Med Spa in Lakeland, Florida, today!
