Can this non-invasive treatment really slim you down?

Everyone has a problem area of their body – the place where weight always gathers first and is difficult to shift once it's there. That's the beauty of Laser Lipo, which let's you target weight loss to a specific area – in my case, my thighs.

Aesthetics of London's City branch isn't the easiest to find, tucked away above some shops, and is more basic-looking inside than I would have expected, but the staff were all very professional and more than happy to answer my questions.

The therapist started by measuring my thighs and marking them so we could see any potential results afterwards. She told me the treatment was most effective on stomachs as there's looser fat there – one client lost an inch on her first treatment.

I lay down on the bed and light panels were strapped around the tops of my legs. They contain low levels of laser energy, which stimulates fat cell membranes and causes intracellular fat to be released. This then gradually passes through the body naturally. I lay quite comfortably for half an hour or so, with the therapist coming in every few minutes to adjust the panels.

At the end of the treatment I was measured again and I had lost two eighths of an inch from one thigh, and an eighth from the other. To keep the weight off, clients are advised to do cardio exercise immediately afterwards and drink plenty of water. I didn't have time to get down to the gym after my appointment, but I was certainly impressed by the instant results.

Laser Lipo from £119.00 per session. Aesthetics of London usually recommends 8-12 sessions. www.aestheticsoflondon.com
