Frequently Asked Questions
How does UltraSlim® Work
4 Elements Laser Lipo features UltraSlim® Professional, the only device for immediate fat loss without dieting, exercise, drugs, or surgery. There are no side effects and no subsequent dysmorphic fat accumulations. Our medical device is an FDA cleared Risk Group 1 body contouring device, safer than any competing device.Our device is so safe even nursing mothers are starting UltraSlim® treatments postpartum. Using our patented photobiomodulation technology, UltraSlim® Professional naturally and non-destructively drains fat cells with lipolysis rather than cell-killing apoptosis. Our technology affects natural cellular responses in the skin and fat, thereby reducing the amount of fat and improving the skin’s appearance. UltraSlim® is not only indicated for use as a noninvasive dermatological aesthetic treatment for the reduction of circumference of hips, waist, and thighs; but also the treatment of superficial, benign vascular, and pigmented lesions.*

General - Is UltraSlim for everyone?
No. UltraSlim should not be used by those who are pregnant,have active cancer, or have photosensitive conditions. When UltraSlim empties the fat cells, the liver causes fatty acids and triglycerides to be voided from the body. Accordingly, individuals with compromised liver function should not receive UltraSlim.
General - Do some people respond to treatment better than others?
Yes. Patients with a higher metabolic rate are better able to excrete the fat cell contents and enjoy better results. However, UltraSlim works for patients of all ages and skin types.
General - Is UltraSlim safe?
Yes. 100% safe. UltraSlim® Professional is the only body contouring device classified by FDA in the lowest risk group, Risk Group 1.There are always risks with liposuction and other body contouring devices, such as Coolsculpting®, SculpSure®, and Zerona®. There are no side effects or adverse outcomes with UltraSlim Professional. Only UltraSlim Professional is proven to be 100% safe.
General - What makes UltraSlim different from the other alternatives?
UltraSlim painlessly reduces fat in the tissue under the skin. UltraSlim allows the body to safely eliminate fat while reducing inches from target areas, slimming, and reshaping body lines while tightening and toning loose skin. A revolutionary method that delivers results while allowing patients to remain active during treatment, UltraSlim supports physicians in their quest to deliver optimum care and well being to their patients. The fat cells are drained of triglycerides and fatty acids — in the areas treated with the red light and throughout the body, due to a chemical process that also improves cholesterol and reduces hunger.

Treatment - Does it take more than one session?
Change to: Does it take more than one session? Standard initial protocol is six treatments for optimal results. One session of UltraSlim is 32 minutes under the LED light. We may recommend 20-minute exposures per side.
Treatment - How long does the effect last?
UltraSlim doesn’t kill fat cells, it depletes the contents of the cell. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle should allow your results to remain. However, an unhealthy lifestyle may cause your fat cells to refill with new fat. Depleting a fat cell is safer than killing it, which is what heat based, ultrasound, radio frequency, and fat freezing devices do. If fat returns after a cell has been depleted, it will go to the same place. If fat returns after your fat cells have been killed, patients of those procedures commonly see side effects like dysmorphic or visceral fat.
Treatment - Does it work for Visceral fat?
Yes UltraSlim works on all types of fat. Using our patented photobiomodulation technology, UltraSlim naturally drains fat cells with lipolysis rather than cell-killing apoptosis. Our technology affects natural cellular responses in fat cells, which reduces the amount of fat. We will recommend the number of treatments you will need to treat visceral fat, based on your body type. Take advantage of the free UltraSlim consultation by 4 Elements Laser Lipo and we will answer all of your specific questions.
Treatment - Does this help with loose skin?
UltraSlim is the most powerful and effective medical device for noninvasive fat loss and beautiful skin, that works on all skin and body types. UltraSlim treatments have been shown to produce collagen and elastin fibers which benefit the appearance of younger, healthier looking and tighter skin.
