It is one we hear a lot here at Slimco Nashville – “How hot are the lasers?” It’s definitely something that is often concerning for clients, but there isn’t much to be worried about when it comes to laser lipo. Our goal is always for our clients’ comfort and satisfaction.

Now, if you’re a little bit more sensitive, it can get hot. It can become very irritating. Some people itch and some people have this annoyed, tingly feeling. It just depends on who you are. It doesn’t work like that for everyone, but a few may experience this feelings. Most clients are able to adapt to the feelings and complete their treatments.
