“We are in hell right now, gentlemen believe me and we can stay here and get the shit kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell. One inch, at a time.”
The speech from Any Given Sunday could easily be used as an advert for Strawberry Laser Lipo. As Al Pachino’s character testified every inch matters that why I decided to make Laser Lipo a central part of my Race Week preparations. Chez Elaine was recommended to me by several friends and within minutes of my first visit I knew why. Beauty salons are seen as a no go area for Irish men, but a quick glance at the brochure and indeed the stylish interior proves lads are more than welcome here.
Proprietor the lovely Elaine suggested I give Strawberry Laser Lipo a try and after some research I thought why not. I’m well used to lying back and having hot stuff work it’s magic, at least this machine won’t fall in love and get really awkward on me. Friends were incredulous when I told them what I had signed up for, but I was very confident of a successful and enjoyable experience after talking to Elaine and reading the information she provided.
The Science Bit
I’ve watched my fair share of the Big Bang Theory but I’m not a scientist, fortunately the Strawberry Laser Lipo site provides a very straightforward explanation on the process;
When the laser paddles are placed on the skin, the cold red laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events takes place. Firstly, pores form on the cells causing them to spill out. The water, Glycerol and fatty acids move into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin. Then further water, fatty acids and Glycerol spill out. The adipocyte cells are therefore reduced in size.

So here’s the deal, after days of listening to scare stories and old wives tales I rocked up to Chez Elaine to give this a go. I went to the treatment room and was measured up, you are made feel very relaxed and everything that’s about to happen is explained articulately. Elaine was very sweet to admit that I was the finest specimen she’s had to date, but to her eternal credit she managed to remain very professional throughout. I lay down on the table and had the pack attached to my abs. It’s basically ten bars about 6 inches by 3 inches, sending beams to the fat cells in your body. It’s a lovely warm sensation not uncomfortable or painful in the slightest.

After the twenty minutes is up, Elaine got the measuring tape out again and much to my delight I had lost two inches. Seeing is genuinely believing.
Strawberry laser lipo worked for the specific goal I had, to tone up for an event and remove that hard to move pockets of fat that just wont go away. In my case the process was like giving a Ferrari a service before taking it to a demolition derby ie Race Week. I came out in pristine condition but it was short lived. I would see Laser Lipo as a great way to kick start a healthier you, or indeed preparation for your wedding or before a sun holiday. It’s not really going to be of benefit if you’re “Yo Mama” fat, or if you get the procedure and think that the lettuce on your Quarter Pounder Burger is part of your five a day then you’re wasting your time.
If you are serious about weight loss and a healthier lifestyle then I would recommend laser lipo, I have already had my second session and am booked in for more.
You can lose weight while lying down reading a magazine it’s a no brainer really.
