Body Contouring Q & A

How does the Verju laser work?

The Verju® laser treatment is a powerful system that targets unwanted fat across your body. It’s a noninvasive treatment that uses low-level laser to reach your fat cells without affecting your skin.

The laser causes your fat cells to destabilize and release their inside fatty lipids. This makes the fat cells shrink, reducing the size of targeted areas of fat and even improving the appearance of cellulite. 

In just two weeks, you’ll see a difference as your body absorbs the released lipids. The laser also increases collagen within your skin to strengthen it and give it a more lifted, structured appearance. 

Dr. Lawrence recommends Verju body sculpting treatments to men and women who want to finally get rid of resistant pockets of fat. Verju can be used on several parts of your body, including your:

  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Lower abdomen
  • Thighs

In one study, patients lost an average of three to four inches from the circumference of their waist, hips, and thighs.

Can body contouring be combined with a weight-loss program?

Body contouring with Verju works best in combination with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Dr. Lawrence offers weight-loss management programs at Conejo Valley Advanced Wellness that are personalized just for you. It can include nutrition and exercise plans, therapy, and more to help you lose weight and make lasting lifestyle changes.

Many patients combine their weight-loss journey with body contouring to give them dramatic results. To find out more about how you can get the most from medical weight-loss management and body contouring, talk to Dr. Lawrence.

Am I a good candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring is a great option for men and women who want to lose stubborn pounds without surgery. Invasive liposuction used to be the only option for fat reduction, but not anymore. Body sculpting with the Verju laser is a completely noninvasive procedure that delivers significant results.

To help you decide if body contouring is right for you, Dr. Lawrence discusses your goals and medical history with you. If you decide to start body contouring, the number of treatment sessions you’ll need is customized to help you achieve your goals.

During each treatment session, you’ll lay comfortably as the lasers do their work. The total amount of time each session takes depends on your treatment plan and goals.

With the help of body contouring at Conejo Valley Advanced Wellness, you can achieve the figure you’ve always wanted. Book an appointment online or by phone today to learn more.
