I recommend this procedure, it was effective for me I had 12 treatments and reduce my middle by 51/2 inches., I found the staff and the office to be pleasant and quite. The treatment rooms were relaxing and private. I also had a groupons which they honored.
Its a scam! I bought a groupon for some laser lipo sessions to target some persistent areas that my workouts cant seem to tackle. You meet with an office consultant who breezes through the information and signs you up for more sessions that end up costing a LOT - for me the cost was $2500. You never see a "doctor" who apparently runs the operation, the office staff are all youngish girls, and there is no professionalism in the environment.
Then you get the "plan" which tells you to avoid carbs on the day you have your sessions, drink 64 ounces of water, and work out at some point in the four hours after you complete your sessions - the more you exercise the better your results. Well, duh!! Most people should see results with that plan. I, on the other hand, already work out and eat well, which is why Im here - I have a few stubborn areas that wont comply. They tell you some people see as much as 1/2 inch right away and up to 5 inches by the time they complete their treatments. I saw no difference.
When I did some research on line about the laser they use - Lapex BCS - I found lots of information stating that its a heat therapy lamp which the FDA has approved to increase circulation and treat pain, but found nothing stating that it can with any certainty spot-reduce fat.
When I called to cancel after just a few sessions (I had purchased 12 sessions), I was informed that I could cancel, but they are KEEPING MY MONEY (all $2500) due to a no refund policy. Wow! I understand not refunding money after all sessions have been completed due to "dissatisfaction," but not refunding money for services that I chose not to be rendered... not ok.
CENTRAL VALLEY LASER CENTER – One word: SCAM
This is not done by a doctor or proffesional with any kind of weight loss background. I bought mine through Groupon, for 2 sessions. The staff took one look at me and said I needs 9 sessions and their special pills for "toxic" that are building up in my body. (I am a nurse, by the way) She never measure or weight me or ask me about my health or background or anything. When I tried to ask about their backgrounds and their experiences, she seems to get annoyed and proceeds to show me that she used the laser herself, that's how she know it works, but you have to do your part by eating right and exercises. OKAYYYYY...
The receptionist is RUDE, UNFRIENDLY AND UNHELPFUL. They cancelled my appt. when they can't get a hold of me--they spoke to my housekeeper, who don't even speak 3 words of English. They said they left a message for her to find out whether I'm going to show up for my second appt or not. When I ask them how do you leave a message to someone who don't even understand what you are saying?why would you do that? Her response? "I couldn't get a hold of you to confirm if you are going to keep your appt or not." How bull sh!t is that? (mind you, I drove 63 miles round trip for my appt only to find out that it was cancelled. My next one was not booked unil 6 weeks later. Unacceptable.
My suggestion for anyone thinking of doing laser lipo, for the same amount of money, I rather do a surgery one because at least that is permanent. If you still wants to do laser lipo, just beware. save yourself some troubles and go somewhere else. This place just wants your money.
Works for me – Let me start by first saying that I am and continue to be satisfied with the treatment and results I received at the Central Valley Laser Center. Also, I found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable.
I am 60 years old and in good shape. About 10 years ago I got into a regular workout routine of free weights and cardio to get back in shape after years of neglect. However, I have been able to reduce what's left of that annoying spare tire around my belly. I had been looking at non-invasive procedures since seeing a segment on the DR. Oz show. Soon I found myself at the Central Valley Laser Center. I was not expecting a miracle but rather a reasonable reduction in my waist line. After a couple treatments I noticed a reduction of about one inch. This is a good start.
Great Place!! – I didn't think I would have the results that I did. I was extremly happy! The staff was great. Made you feel very confortable. I'd definitely recommend it to my friends. Very glad I went. :)
I'M NOW A BELIEVER! – I have to admit I was skeptical, but 4 inches in 2 sessions! Incredible! I'm going back. The place is lovely and easy to get to. The people are nice. The experience is so pleasant and I'm thinner!
Two thumbs up!
AMAZING!!! – I've already lost a whole clothing size and I'm down 10 pounds and I'm only on my seventh treatment. I couldn't be happier!!!!
lipolaser – Starting my treatment with Central Valley Laser Center yeilded results even after only a few treatments, which was a bonus and motivation to persue my goal to a slimmer waist - I would most definitly recommend this facility to other esp. with the wonderful staff. :)
The staff at Central Valley Laser Center is very nice and helpful. Their facility is clean and relaxing. I have always wanted to try out the laser treatments. Now I know that the laser do not hurt. I am excited to see what the end result is.
WARNING WARNING WARNING! Read this before going !! – This place is the biggest scam ever !!!
For the consultation, theres a fake dream put in your head telling you that this will work for any body and you will achieve any results you wish....WRONG! !
Its very expensive, and fake!
We were told that all would administered by their Dr.... WRONG!
We were told we would see a Dr before the first appt. WRONG!
We were told there would be a 20 minute Dr administered workout...WRONG!!!
Actually they throw you on this machine that shakes you for 10 minutes then ur done.
I had to contact the Dr myself, with no success. So I had to threaten a refund for the secretary to take me seriously.. Finally after 4 laser sessions we finally got a hold of the Dr.
The Dr. told us that the laser does not penetrate the skin so realistically it only goes down less than an inch. In his words this treatment only helps small problematic areas in thin people. The dr recommended us to get refunded cuz the treatment was not for me in the first place. I got scammed into buying 18 sessions for 2800.00 and also had to pay $75.00 for a detox that I found online for $13.00 . These people are all about money,
The refund process is a whole other story .
Theyre refusing to give me a full refund after THEIR Dr told us the treatment wasnt for me. The dr.is licensed thru that place,yet is never there. Place is Full of sh it!
Owner is very rude n hangs up in ur face. Face it people its really not worth going to ..
