Body-contouring sessions at The Pittsburgh Aesthetic Laser Lipo Center begin when a technician straps a set of Lapex BCS LaserLipo paddles onto problem areas such as the belly, thighs, or arms. These paddles emit a low-level laser energy that breaks down fat cell membranes over the course of 40 minutes. Next, patients stand on a whole-body vibration platform for 10 minutes to help purge the expelled fatty acids from the body. The clinic staff recommends 8–12 treatments, along with maintaining a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and perfect wink, for optimal results.
