This article explains in laymans terms how laser lipo, and in particular the Lumislim laser lipo works. Firstly, Laser lipo may be a new paradigm as far as being used as a body contouring treatment, but the use of this type of laser is actually long standing. Lumislim and similar machines us a low hazard cold laser diode emitter that is active on the 650nm wavelength. The way it works is this frequency of laser energy stimulates the fat cell membranes, changing their permeability. The cells lose their round shape, and intracellular fat is released.
Next, the fatty triglycerides flow out of the disrupted cell membranes and into the interstitial space, where they gradually pass through the body’s natural metabolic functions with no harmful physiological effects, and are used as an energy source for the body or passed in the urine as waste.
This process does not alter neighbouring structures such as the skin, blood vessels, and peripheral nerves. It is not merely the liquefaction of fat but instead it is the instant breakdown of the fat cells that occurs, otherwise known as lipolysis, laser lipolysis or laser lipo.

It’s Simple to use too. During a routine laser lipo treatment, up to four treatment pads containing the laser diodes are placed over the treatment area and secured in direct contact with the skin using elastic straps. Then two more laser probes are positioned onto the region of the lymphatic nodes closest to the treatment zone. Once all of the pads are in place, the clients can get comfortable and just enjoy the treatment or choose to pamper themselves with other simultaneous treatments.
Of course, results vary from person to person, but in 2008 RED magazine conducted a survey of a number of treatments and the results are as follows.
Treatment Name Type No of treatments Fat loss Cost
Alma Accent Radio Frequency 7 7cm 2,000
Smartlipo Laser/Surgery 1 6cm 2,000
Lipo-Smooth Ultrasounhd 6 5cm 880
Ultratone Electric pulses 12 4.5cm 420
Tripolar Radio Frequency 6-8 4.5cm 1,200
Lipomassage Motorised rollers 6-8 3cm 360 laser liposuction
LASERLIPO Class 3B laser 8 19.5cm 1,000
The results of this survey were lucidly conclusive and demonstrate just how much potential laser lipo has as a business opportunity. Laser Lipo is best value for money, but the results often lead to repeat business and referrals, making this one of the most profitable treatments any beauty salon owner can offer.
When it comes to choice of machines, it’s a small market with only a few vendors. Out of all machines available the Lumislim is a clear leader in terms of quality and price, which means a sensible buying decision.
