Can a “Strawberry” melt fat away?

The Doctors Strawberry Laser

First introduced in London, the Strawberry Laser’s cold laser technology is now available in the United States. Already, over 5 million people worldwide have lost instant inches with Strawberry.  There are now Strawberry systems installed in over 30 countries.

The Strawberry Laser is an FDA cleared, painless alternative to liposuction that achieves non-invasive inch-loss and body contouring by shrinking fat cells. With each 10-20 minute treatment, unwanted fat is naturally released from the body via the lymphatic system.  The results are instant. All you have to lose are inches!  To see Strawberry “in action” visit this link from “The Doctors.”  http://www.thedoctorstv.com/videos/strawberry-laser-for-slimmer-thighs

Dr. Lyle Back is a board certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon who uses the device in his practice. He states that, “Strawberry’s results are 2.5 times better than any other device in the industry.  An FDA approved double-blind clinical study with placebos compared those treated vs. the placebo subjects over a course of 8 treatments. The average loss of treated subjects recorded was 3.7 inches. This reduction was from one measurement location and not a combination of two or three, as if often quoted. What’s more, 2 areas of the body can be treated simultaneously.”

Strawberry Laser body contouring treatments are ideal for two types of people: Those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat from their abdomen, back, legs, or arms, or those who want to use the Strawberry recommended lifestyle protocol, to “jump start” their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle. A course of eight Strawberry treatments are recommended, typically two treatments each week for 4 weeks.

 So how does it work?

Prior to each treatment, precise measurements are taken at multiple levels around a patient’s specific target area(s). During the treatment, low-level (cold) laser technology is used to painlessly melt fat within the fat cells. The process is similar to exercise. When a person exercises, triglycerides are released from the fat cells. With these being released, the fat cells reduce in size (adipocytes). The Strawberry Laser works in a similar way, pulling the triglycerides from the fat cells. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller, so inches are reduced off the waist, hips, thighs, arms, buttocks and male breasts. Exercising in conjunction with Strawberry Laser treatments further stimulates the fat reduction process. Surrounding tissues, such as blood vessels, nerves and skin cells are unaffected by the procedure.

WHY IS STRAWBERRY SUPERIOR TO OTHER FAT MELTING METHODS ON THE MARKET?

Zerona:
The Zerona is a US made machine, which uses 6 spiders like arms all with a laser diode in each.
The ‘arms’ are not placed on the skin and are roughly 3-4 inches away from the area being treated. Treatment times are 40 minutes, which  generally combines  the waist, hips and thighs for 20 minutes, then the patient turns over and the same treatment is repeated on the opposite side of the patient’s body.Treatments are carried out 3 times a week for a minimum period of 2 weeks. The FDA clinical trials showed an average loss of 3.52 inches from the waist, hips and thighs. It does not state how many sessions were required.
I-Lipo:
I-lipo is a machine manufactured by a company called Chromogenex.
The treatments are 2 treatments a week for 4 weeks, 8 in total.
A healthy diet and regular exercise is recommended to maintain the inch loss.
The machine was FDA cleared on April 13th 2012for Circumference Reduction.
The FDA clinical trials showed an average loss of 1.75 inches from the waist following a course of 8 treatments.

Coolsculpting:
I-lipo is a machine manufactured in the US by a company called Zeltiq.
Is a machine which combines vacuum and freezing in order to permanently destroy fat calls in a patient’s problem areas. The fat cells become crystallized, meaning they die.
The treatment is painful as the cooling begins during the first few minutes; patients’ will feel pressure and intense cold.
During the procedure patients’ tend to feel, deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness and discomfort.
Following the procedure, typical side effects include numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. The results are minimal as the treatment is localised.
Different areas can be treated in one visit so treatment times vary depending on each patient’s requirements. The results tend to be seen 3 weeks – 2 months after the treatment.
The treatment was FDA cleared on May 2nd 2012 for the subsequent removal of fat on the Flank (love handles) and abdomen in individuals with a body mass index of 30 or less.
Following a laser treatment, Strawberry’s protocol recommends a minimum of 20 minutes cardiovascular exercise. This is essential to maintain the results.

 What results can I expect?

A course of 8 Strawberry treatments results in noticeable body contouring results and targeted fat loss, depending on a patient’s metabolic rate and build.  Inches will stay off after treatment provided that a patient follows a healthy diet and exercises.

What actually happens to the fat?

The fat cells are undamaged; but due to the reaction of the laser light on the cell it will empty the contents. The contents consist of water, glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment, the glycerol is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids, through the lymphatic system, through the liver and kidneys and are passed out of the body in your urine.

Who is not a candidate for the treatment?

Pregnant women and people who have medical problems including epilepsy, heart diseases, hypertension, liver or kidney disease are advised not to undergo a Strawberry Laser Lipo treatment.

 The Cost

Treatments can vary between $200 – $300 per session and this can include up to two areas of the body.

For the full eight sessions, the expense is thousands of dollars less than liposuction.
