If you're already approaching to an age where your metabolism gets slower, I have to day that YES, THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. It really is getting harder to get that needed healthy sexy body that almost everyone wish they had. As for me, food has been more accessible than ever (food blogger here) and exercising isn't really becoming a priority as of the moment (reality bites) so sometimes I now consider other alternatives for me to maintain a slimmer physique without experiencing too much fatigue (or else I can possibly aggravate an existing back problem)
Yep, I'm one of those people who isn't allowed to exercise too much. Lucky me, I guess? Then again, what other options are out there in the market?
And then I found out about Contours Body Design Studio, which, according to their website, aims to be a growing post for each individual, leading them to fit and healthy bodies and lifestyles. It serves as a development hub for people who long for improved health progressions that will highly benefit them in the long run.
Contours has been one of the prime institutions to offer various and unique services. Dr. Roura is a board certified dermatologist and a fellow of both Philippine Dermatological Society and the Philippine Academy of Cutaneous Surgery. She graduated Doctor of Medicine from the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Santo Tomas, and had her residency training in dermatology at the Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center. Other than her academic trainings, she has also gained knowledge from different doctors that are known in the field of Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Roura completed her cosmetic surgery preceptorship under Dr. Raul B. Guanzon, a fellow of the Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery.
I also happen to have friends who have tried Contours and loved the results. So I was thinking, there's no harm in trying especially when going under the knife isn't involved, right?
And then came the idea of having Laserfit.
As per Contours website, Laserfit is a holistic approach to weight loss and body contouring. This is a combination of non-invasive full body cold laser exposure to melt fat, 10-minute interval training to burn the melted fats, and added nutritional recommendations and diet guide that leads to a holistic lifestyle. This is a program which provides fast results that goes immediately visible as fast as after the second session.
How does Laserfit work?
Cold laser (Zerona) exposure is said to release fat from the body for 3 days. Daily 10 minute workouts are recommended to burn fats, trim down and lose weight. You don’t have to worry about all these as Contours will provide a fitness facilitator just for you. We will help you and guide you all throughout the process!
What are the expectations?
You can start seeing improvement after the second session, and you will notice your clothes getting loose, and this is an indicator of fat loss. Results may vary depending on weight and fat conditions.
So how true is this? Let's find out.
My Laserfit journey sums up to six full sessions of Zerona exposure and small, quick workouts that I didn't find too strenuous or painful. I had all the sessions done in their Megamall branch every week during my free time and during that period, I was eating meals in smaller and healthier portions.
I was also given a booklet where the Contours specialists would record my session dates and times. Meanwhile, here's the Zerona (cold laser) machine that they have in their clinics.
Take note that this is not me in the photo, hehe! But this was how I attended each session, and the laser targeted three crucial areas: my arms, waist and legs.
Those availing the Laserfit sessions should also bring their workout clothes so they can workout right after the sessions. It includes watching a 10-minute workout video and using their total body exercise equipment that burns even more fat while using it.
Here are more FAQs about Laserfit.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does cold laser exposure help release fat from the body?
How different is it from other fat-melting treatments like i-Lipo? - The process is called Photobiomodulation, the low level laser stimulates the fat cells to release fat in the form of fatty acids that is ready to either be eliminated via the lymphatic system or be used up as energy. We use the ZERONA laser which was designed for full body slimming, compared to the ilipo which is for spot reduction, zerona was designed for full body slimming, it can treat multiple areas at the same time.
How safe is the treatment / ere there any contraindications, or who are not eligible for the treatment?
It is very safe without any side effect, no fear of burning, no heat like RF and no ringing sound like lipocavi.
What areas are best treated by Laserfit?
Laserfit is for full body laser slimming, it targets mostly the waist, hips and thigh simultaneously however the effect is transmitted to other parts of the body.
Laserfit is great because the only thing I need to do is lay down and only have a little time for working out in the clinic. I was taking longer walks and eating balanced meals, and not long before my trip to Boracay, this was how I looked:
My only mistake was that I skipped a few weeks before I continued my last two sessions. I was able to follow the suggested eating plan when I started Laserfit, but unfortunately, my passion slowly got in the way (aka EATING hahaha). But the great thing was that I was still able to lose a lot of body fat!
So who says that age hinders to a healthier body? Thank you for melting my extra pounds, Contours!
