Lockhart Body Contouring provides Zerona LipoLaser, an FDA-approved cold laser treatment that effectively targets and eliminates fat from your body’s fat cells.
We firmly oppose the idea of annihilating fat cells.
When you eliminate a fat cell (like in 95% of current procedures on the market), if you happen to gain weight later on, the new fat will need to “locate a new spot” on your body.
Although the prospect of achieving a permanent result in a specific area may seem appealing, it’s important to consider what happens if you gain weight. In such cases, the newly gained fat tends to redistribute itself more rapidly to other areas of your body. This can be attributed to the fact that there are relatively fewer fat cells available in your system.
Observe your surroundings and you’ll notice individuals who have successfully eliminated excess fat through various procedures, such as:
It’s not just about appearing larger; it’s the lack of proportionality that becomes apparent. We’ve all encountered individuals who fit this description…and now we understand the reason behind their unconventional look.
Initially, they might have appeared splendid immediately after their procedure. However, as time went on and they gained weight, undesired fat started to manifest in new areas on their body.
Zerona is an incredibly safe and painless treatment that requires absolutely no downtime.
Throughout the treatment, you will experience no discomfort, and there is no need for anesthesia. Moreover, you can resume your normal activities immediately after each session.
The revolutionary technology of the Zerona LipoLaser selectively releases the contents of fat cells, ensuring the preservation of capillaries and other cells in the interstitial space. This sophisticated process retains the integrity of surrounding tissues while effectively targeting fat cells for optimal results.
The liberation of fat cell contents occurs when the cell’s membrane is disrupted, creating a transient pore through low-level laser stimulation. This process, known as membrane disruption, facilitates the release of the cell’s contents and is instrumental in achieving desired outcomes.
For optimal results, it is recommended to engage in exercise or undergo a 10-minute Whole Body Vibration session (offered complimentary at Austin Body Contouring) immediately following laser treatment. This practice aids in burning the released Free Fatty Acids (FFAs) within the body and stimulates the lymphatic system, contributing to a more effective outcome.
Traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure that invasively eliminates fat cells from various areas like the stomach, thighs, arms, and neck. This method typically entails a lengthy recovery period and can cause considerable discomfort.
On the contrary, LipoLaser treatments are painless, require no downtime, and work by shrinking fat cells rather than removing them. This revolutionary approach ensures a comfortable experience while effectively reducing fat. Why does that matter?
Imagine this scenario: you undergo liposuction to target excess weight on your stomach. As liposuction eliminates fat cells, you might assume that there would be no possibility of fat returning to your stomach. It sounds great, right?
However, when you lose fat, it redistributes itself to other areas where fat cells still exist, such as your thighs, butt, arms, and back. It’s worth noting that LipoLasers do not eliminate fat cells, so in the event that you regain weight, it will be distributed more evenly. Gaining 10 pounds uniformly across your body is generally less conspicuous than gaining 10 pounds solely in specific areas like your thighs or back.
Coolsculpting offers a less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, effectively eliminating fat cells. However, one must be mindful of the potential for disproportional weight gain post-treatment.
Coolsculpting tends to come with a heftier price tag compared to our LipoLaser treatments. Additionally, some individuals have reported that it can be rather uncomfortable. Moreover, it typically takes several months before any noticeable results start to become apparent. Many of our clients have reported seeing results the same day!
