AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?

NLAL is a great procedure if you are in good overall health, but have small areas of fat you would like to lose. NLAL is extremely effective and patients have been pleased with their results.

WHAT PARTS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH NLAL?

NLAL is a great treatment to reduce fat around your neck, back, arms, love handles and the tummy.

A single treatment can be very effective, but often a series of treatments are required for the best results. The duration of your treatment will depend on the part of the body being treated. Treatments typically take less than an hour.

Because NLAL is a minimally-invasive procedure, there is little or no downtime, and most of our patients return to work the next day.

HERE ARE SOME OTHER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: Can I exercise during treatment?
A: Yes. This helps speed up your lymphatic system.

Q: How many calories are released during treatment?
A: One treatment can release about 300 calories, often more in some cases.

Q: How is fat reduced?
A: When your body needs energy, the brain signals adipose cells that they need to break down stored fat. This is known as lipolysis. After 20 minutes of treatment, with exercise, demand for energy is created. This demand is met by released fatty acids and leads to losing inches!

Q: Can I use a body wrap following NLAL treatment, rather than working out?
A: Body wraps offer no benefit for fat reduction, according to medical research. Wraps may be worn if you like, but they are not a substitute for working out. Patients must work out to burn calories. It is the only way to eliminate fat from the body.

Q: Can taking a steam or sauna after NLAL treatment replace working out?
A: No. Exercise is still required. Saunas and steams can promote water loss and boost metabolism a bit. But there is no evidence they allow you to burn the 300 to 400 calories that need to be metabolized during NLAL.

Q: How many treatments can I receive? When should I stop treatments? How much time should pass between series of treatments?
A: Our standard course is eight to 10 sessions, two times a week for four weeks. There are two optional sessions during the following two weeks. Doing two treatments per week allows fatty acid levels to stabilize after each session. Additional treatments can begin following a two-week break. This 14-day break lets your body return to its normal mode and helps us determine if you are making the diet and lifestyle changes needed to maintain NLAL benefits.

Q: What is NLAL’s absorption rate?
A: The LED system we employ has a dramatically higher absorption rate compared to laser. Typically LED offers a 70 percent absorption rate compared to laser’s 30 percent. This gives you a better chance to achieve the results you want – both in inches lost and fat reduction.

Q: Is NLAL safe?
A: Yes. We recommend using glasses for facial treatments to prevent the risk of headaches in those who are prone to them, including migraine headaches.
