The Lila Strawberry Laser is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that sheds inches off your body in minutes. It is a non-surgical alternative to losing inches, much like liposuction. I had the pleasure of trying the treatment in the beautiful Med Spa 44 located in Manhattan recently. A little self-conscious about a small fat bubble still sitting on my stomach after my last pregnancy, I was curious to see what the Lila could do to restore my figure to my more slender days.
After being welcomed by Carmen, a spa technician, I was introduced to the room where the device is located. The procedure involves two steps. Carmen measured my waist and hips and invited me to exercise on a step-on vibration plate. The machine provides cardiovascular exercise to start metabolizing fat. Your whole body shakes while you perform lateral arm movements. After two ten-minute sessions, I was in a sweat. This helps burn fat ten times faster than the step class at your gym.
The second step involves the Lila Strawberry. After lying down on the treatment table, laser paddles were placed on my lower waist area before the device was set in motion. The laser reduces the size of adipocyte cells without damaging them. The process only shrinks cells breaking down triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol before releasing them. The treatment was painless and after measuring the area, it turned out that I had lost one full inch of fat on my waist. Carmen instructed me to exercise to help flush the recently released fat out of my system. The amount of treatments required varies according to the amount of fat you have. For me two or three more sessions were recommended but in some cases you may have to go up to ten sessions.
I recommend the Lila treatment because it works fast without any pain, bruising or recovery time and you leave the office with a visible, if small, transformation.
The most common areas treated include the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, legs, ankles, jowls and buttocks. It is the perfect short cut to obtaining quick results. For more information visit http://www.medspa44.com.
