When they say that simpler is better, they’re not just talking about feng-shui, pizza and mathematics; it’s always a good idea to get rid of the clutter and unnecessary things that just seem to accumulate faster than dust on ceramic knick-knacks. Considering humans no longer need layers of fat to keep them warm in winter, do some spring-cleaning on those useless extra fat-cells with a 30-minute laser Lipo session at Laser Lipo SA for R200.
Unless you’ve figured out the secrets to basic time-travel, cooking and eating six healthy meals a day, spending at least an hour in the gym and working a normal job is just not a feasible plan for fitting into smaller clothes. While hearing the term liposuction can bring to mind all sorts of scary images, like scalpels and little doctors with big needles, a 30- minute session of laser Lipo doesn’t feature either. Using low-levels of laser energy and diodes strapped to whatever area you’re struggling with, laser lipo is more like a post-scientific shrink-ray than anything else. Totally non-invasive, it won’t leave so much as a red mark, let alone a scar; though, unfortunately means no time-off at work. It also doesn’t involve any anaesthetics that usually leave your head so fuzzy you could walk into the Black Hole of Calcutta and just think it’s rush hour at the dentist.
The half-hour sessions don’t cause any weird reactions in your body, creating the same chemical reaction in your fat-cells that a few weeks of extreme dieting would; causing them to break down and release the fatty acids and other mess they seem so desperate to cling to. A precision strike on your fat cells, the treatment doesn’t damage or interfere with any other structures in your body, like skin or nerves – so it’s quick, painless and more effective than three hours at the gym. After the 30-minute session, you’ll have to spend ten minutes on the vibrating powerplate or treadmill at the salon to ensure that all the fat stays gone, but getting shaken around for a few minutes is far preferable to weeks of crash dieting; alternatively, you could chill out in a sauna bed for a while, which is supposed to have the same effect.
The trained therapists at Laser Lipo SA will make sure that, though the treatment has been compared to a shrink-ray, the half-hour you spend in the cheery company and trendy salon doesn’t feel like an afternoon spent with a mad-scientist and his latest kid-shrinking project.
Fat-fighting Fact: The
machines used in laser lipo were originally invented to boil eggs. The first
machine was built by a nanny in a downtown LA day-care centre using a
complicated combination of dismantled car alarms and glow-sticks.
