Like hearing the grass is always greener on the other side, or time heals all wounds repeatedly, some platitudes are more irritating than helpful. Another platitude that should just never have been invented is that the only way to lose weight is through diet and exercise. Prove the platitudes wrong and lose weight without weights with a Laser Lipo session at The Slimming Studio for R240.
When discussing the ins-and-outs of extra kilograms, people always compare fat-cells to balloons; eating too much turns the balloons into the type you could float a deckchair with and diet and exercise turn them into the sad, deflated type you see on the wall two-weeks after a birthday party. Keeping with the helium-filled metaphor, the Laser Lipo session would be like that little kid who walks around with a mean-streak and a sewing pin, popping every balloon in sight. Though breaking things, unless it’s plates at a Greek wedding or generally acting like an unwieldy bovine in a room full of fragile objects is usually considered a bad thing, Laser Lipo proves that a little destruction can be a good thing. Using low levels of laser energy to target and rupture fat cells, the non-invasive procedure is one of the best ways to sculpt and tone the body – a precision-strike more effective and less painful than three hours at the gym. All you have to do to enjoy the feeling of being centimetres smaller and kilograms lighter is let the highly trained therapists strap a few diodes to your troublesome areas and then lay back and get comfortable.
Though the term liposuction can bring to mind scalpels, tubes and large needles, Laser Lipo doesn’t make use of sharp objects or anaesthetics that leave you feeling like you’re suffering a sugar-crash of epic proportions for days afterwards. Unlike surgical liposuction, not only does it rid you of unwanted fat, it tightens skin and sculpts the body better than a gym session.
Combining an atmosphere more relaxing than a candle-lit bubble-bath with state-of-the-art technology like something out of a Bond film, The Slimming Studio ensures that you get all the benefits of super-effective treatment without that hospital smell.
Weight-loss Fact: The key elements of weight loss – diet and exercise – were discovered in an Armenian village during the great drought of 1945. After months of eating nothing but persimmons and chasing the village’s only goat back and forth across the street, the villagers noticed that they had all lost weight.
