Strawberry (by Laser Lipo LTD) is a proprietary technology that utilizes an external laser system in order to provide customers with liposuction that is advertised as cheap and pain-free. Although it was difficult to find a lot of independent reviews of the Strawberry Lipo procedure, in this page, we will come up with a review of how the process works, what it costs, and what customers have to say – as far as we can tell. Of course, that is partially justified, since this technology, being still relatively new, has not permeated the market enough yet so as to generate a lot of reviews. The method that is used by the Strawberry Laser Lipo has been accredited by the Food and Drug Administration. However, the Eye Bag therapy (see below), being not yet offered, is expected to get an FDA approval.

How Does Strawberry Laser Lipo Work?
Strawberry Inch Loss is a laser lipolysis procedure in which a paddle is placed against the skin (thusly requiring no incisions), and a cold red laser beam is shined through the skin and into the fatty layer underneath (at 650nm). After the laser penetrates the skin and hits the fatty tissue, it induces the creation of pores (find how) and the intracellular content is released and removed by the body’s own lymphatic system. The company states that surrounding tissues such as blood vessels, nerves and skin cells are unaffected by the procedure.
In addition to the above, the company also offers a couple of other products: Strawberry Stretch Marks and Strawberry Eye Bags. Laser lipectomy’s proponents have often pointed out that lasers not only can help remove fat from the body but can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, causing it to tighten. This is the principle behind the Strawberry Stretch Mark laser therapy, which promotes skin elasticity.
As the method targets at shrinking the size of fat cells and then at forcing the fat out of the body through the lymphatic system, the end goal of taking off an inch or so from the waistline (as the label “Strawberry Inch Loss” implies) is totally feasible. Furthermore, after the treatment, the patient ends up with a smoother and more tightened skin while the procedure itself can be regarded as almost completely painless. Also, the Strawberry Stretch Mark laser therapy promotes skin elasticity and can reduce the appearance of stretch marks, although it cannot entirely remove them.
Areas To Be Treated
Owing to the relatively modern technology integrated, the Strawberry Laser Lipo method is suitable for treating many areas of the body; typically, the body zones that mostly receive this treatment are – apart from the stomach/waistline – thighs, buttocks, “muffin” tops, male breasts etc.
The whole procedure is minimally invasive, so few complications are expected. Also, the downtime is limited. On the other hand, people who have medical problems including epilepsy, heart diseases, hypertension, diabetes, liver or kidney disease etc. are advised not to undergo a Strawberry Laser Lipo treatment.
It seems that the company offers many specials and discounts and that you can receive multiple sessions for only a few hundred pounds. Since the procedure does not involve any actual cutting, it makes sense that it would be less expensive to perform, and thusly, the company could pass on the savings to the customer. At the same time, it really is quite cheap compared to many other liposuction procedures, which means you probably get what you pay for. Finding an average price tag at Realself.com was not possible, yet, in the UK, a treatment can start from £150. Moreover, several medical centers performing treatments using this device usually offer discounts on a course of treatments being booked (for example, three treatments can be charged for £350).
Strawberry Laser Lipo Reviews
Since the company is UK-based and better known there than in North America at this point, Strawberry Lipo does have global distribution and customers around the world. Therefore, the majority of customer testimonials one can find while researching will be UK-based, making the overall assessment somewhat tricky. Yet, the few independent reviews currently circulating the net claim that the procedure failed to create lasting results, and that when they started eating and drinking as per usual, the weight came right back.

Before and After Photos
As concluded by the above, Strawberry Laser Lipo is not a procedure for people who are looking for dramatic weight loss – in fact, it is more of a touch-up for a customer who needs to drop a dress size fast in time for a special event, for example. The reality, however, is that no lipectomy procedure is a replacement for good habits and a healthy lifestyle. While it is true that fat cells that are removed are removed permanently, there is nothing preventing your body from storing new fat. Just as you could quickly put back on an inch around your waistline if you worked out for a while and then stopped, you can quickly put back on an inch after lipo if you are eating too much or not working out enough.
So, while it is difficult to conclude a lot about Strawberry Laser Lipo at this point, on the whole, it can be regarded as a reasonably priced procedure which can help you out if you want to drop an inch or so from your waistline, but it is not recommended for dramatic change. Besides, you should always remember that your lifestyle will determine how long you keep your new shape – and that’s true for any brand and any technique of lipectomy.
