Med Spa Eligibility
Please read the following for information about eligibility:
In general, patients with light skin and dark hair are the ideal candidates for laser hair removal. However, the use of longer wavelength lasers and skin cooling devices have increased the safety of lasers used to treat patients with darker skin types that, until now, have not been candidates for laser hair removal. These skin cooling devices protect the upper layer of skin in darker skinned patients from absorbing too much laser energy, thereby reducing the risk of blistering and pigment change.
Yet while laser treatments for darker skinned patients have improved, patients with tanned skin are still not candidates and must wait until their tan fades before they can be treated. Patients are instructed not to suntan or use sunless tanning products prior to laser treatment, since tanning alters skin pigment and can affect how the skin absorbs the laser energy. This could lead to increased side effects such as blistering or discoloration following treatment.
In addition to a patient's skin color, their hair color can also determine the number of treatments of laser hair removal.
The pigment in dark hair readily absorbs laser energy, more readily making black or brown hair very easy to treat (from the American Academy of Demotology www.aad.org). However, laser hair removal can now work well with blonde, brunette and red hair.

LIPO-LASER Fat Dissolving Laser
FDA and Health Canada approved LipoLaser uses innovative laser technology to instantly reduce body fat. Laserium Med Spa is pleased to announce the Health Canada approved LipoLaser a non-invasive, pain-free laser treatment for spot fat reduction and aesthetic body-contouring. Using innovative laser technology, the LipoLaser targets fat tissue layers, instantly refining and reshaping any problem areas of the body including waistlines, arms, legs, thighs, buttocks and back.
The LipoLaser offers clients the luxury of inch loss and cellulite without having to go under the knife.
"With a single 30 min. treatment, LipoLaser has the ability to reduce 1/2" to 1" waistlines and other areas on most skin and body types, setting it apart from any other body-forming aesthetic device on the market, "Doctors have reported as much as five inches of loss after a standard four week treatment cycle."
LipoLaser technology targets fat cells during each treatment session. Treatments are completely non-invasive and pain-free, allowing clients to resume normal activities immediately after each treatment without any residual bruising, swelling or discomfort.
Studies have shown that those who eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly will experience the best LipoLaser results. However, even those with sluggish metabolisms have reported a unique and invigorating body wake-up.
During treatments, the fat cells are made temporarily permeable allowing cell contents to spill out, converting the fat to free fatty acids, water and glycerol, which in turn are processed through the body's natural metabolic functions. The body can easily process the amount of mobilized fat released during a standard treatment cycle.
Low-level laser technology has been used and studied for more than 30 years for a variety of biomedical purposes including wound healing, pain relief and inflammation.
The Lipo-Laser's non-invasive treatment is considered one of the most innovative methods to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve body contour. The Lipo-Laser is a validated physician-sponsored study.
The biggest advantage of Lipo-Laser for non-surgical adipose treatment, is that it is a procedure reduces accumulated fat in adipocytes(such as cellulite) and brings the broken down fat to the muscular layer where blood capillary flow is well distributed and is absorbed in the blood stream and naturally excreted.
Dr Chubaty is a world renowned physician with a practice focussing on cellulite and fat spot fat reduction known as Mesotherapy. He reported very positive results with the Lipo-Laser with marked difference in body appearance.
The treatment is not based on heat development, but on photochemical and photobiological effects on cells and tissue.
Fat Cell Reduction
When the laser radiates adipocytes (adipocytes are present in adipose tissue and store energy as fat) the contents of thecells move out of the cell membrane and become liquefied and are easily removed from the blood. The breakdown of fat cells is known as lipolysis.
- No Injections
- Pinpoints target treatment areas.
- No swelling, bruising or dimpling post treatment
- Completely painless
- No side effects (selectively radiates only fat)
- Body contouring and reduction of cellulite
- Pre and post surgical Lipo-suction (decreases recovery time post liposuction)
- Reduction of fat cells, cell regeneration, improves circulation.
- Immediate results after one half hour treatment and you can lose from ? to 1 inch.
Is LipoLaser safe?
Yes. LipoLaser treatments are completely non-invasive and most clients feel nothing. LipoLaser's low level laser technology has been studied and used for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes including wound healing, pain relief and inflammation.
Where does the fat go?
Unless the released fat is burned in the body as fuel, it simply undergoes normal metabolic processing.
How quickly will I see results?
Many clients will see measurable results after first or second treatments; however, a standard treatment protocol consists of two, 30 to 40 minute treatment sessions every week for four to six weeks. Best results are achieved when LipoLaser clients do cardio exercise or utilize whole body vibration equipment for 10 minutes immediately after their treatments.
What happens during a treatment session?
Clients relax in a comfortable position while a trained lipoLaser techniciqn secures two multi-laser paddles and two smaller lasers to the target areas for 10 minute intervals. Clients are free to relax, read, listen to music during LipoLaser treatment.
What happens after a treatment session?
Clients may resume normal activities (including exercise) immediately after their session.
What parts of the body can be treated?
- Love Handles
- Upper, Mid and Lower Back
