Doctors >Central Valley Laser Center
I have had really great results. I lost 17.5 inches. True that with eating right and exercising this should happen anyway, but I was doing that and I was stuck. This has kick started my weight loss again and toned my body. I would recommend it. It works best if you can book all of you appointments fairly close together, such as 3 a week. It worked for me!
Don't go here! Complete scam! Horrible business practice.
I purchased the Groupon and actually used it. I did not buy the package as I wanted to try it out first and see how well it worked. You are not forced to purchase a package, you are offered one. Groupon is a marketing tool...... I was skeptical at first, but I have to say I am extremely PLEASED with the results. I lost a total of 10 3/4 inches in only 4 treatments! I will be returning. The ladies in the office were pleasant and helpful. Thank you Central Valley Laser Center, you have helped me get rid of my problem areas that exercise alone was not removing!
I found the treatments worked for me,
I thought I had not lost any inches, but after they measured me, I had lost approimately 3 inches after my sixth treatment, The office staff is pleasant and professional. I am looking forward to my next treaments and losing more inches.
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!
