I recently completed 9 sessions with the Lapex 2000 LipoLaser, and I have mixed feelings about it. Some background: I am 39 years old, have had 3 children, weigh 110 lbs and workout religiously. I have been plagued by pockets of fat below my butt which I fondly refer to as my "second butt", and I have tried in vain to get rid if it. I am about to turn 40 and would like to get rid of it so I can stop worrying about it and move on. No amount of exercise or dieting has helped.
I did everything they asked me to do.....drank 2-3 liters of water per day, cut back on caloric intake, stood on the vibration platform for 10 minutes following each procedure, exercised 30-60 minutes per day. My results were very dissapointing. The technician would measure the circumference of each thigh, as well as the circumference of my entire hip area with my legs together. She would measure before the procedure and then again after. She did a lot of "moving" of the tape measure until she came up with the numbers that she wanted to see. Even though she had marked my thighs each time with marker dots, she would tighten that tape measure until it showed an 1/8 of an inch of progress. In total, her measurements showed that I lost around 1" on each of the "marker dots". SInce there were 3 marker dots on each thigh, that added up to 3" total lost, plus she measured my total circumference (with legs together) in 3 different spots for an improvement of 1" in each spot for a total of 6" lost......what a scam! That's how they come up with all of these claims of losing 3"-7" of body fat in 3 weeks. In reality, I only lost about 1"! My jeans and shorts are not fitting any better, that's how LITTLE I really lost. I didn't lose any pounds, either.
I will post photos below so you can see. I think the "after" photos do look a little bit better, but you can see that I still have a "second butt". When I had a consultation for Liposuction at a cosmetic surgeon, they said that for $2400 I could get rid of all of that fat. Maybe should've gone that route....

I never really met with the doctor, only met with the technician Lisa Fardeaux. She was always prompt and on-time.
