Absolutely! YOLO Curve treatments are completely non-invasive and patients experience no pain. The YOLO Curve’s low level laser technology has been studied and used for over 30 years for several biomedical purposes including wound healing, pain relief and the treatment of inflammation.

Clients relax in a comfortable position while a certified YOLO Curve technician secures the multi-diode paddles and smaller EN probes to the target area(s) for 10 minute per placement. Clients are free to relax, read, listen to music or even receive additional aesthetic treatments.

Most clients will see measurable results after their first treatment. However, a standard treatment protocol consists of three, 20-30 minute treatment sessions every week for 3 weeks. Best results are achieved when YOLO Curve clients may perform cardio exercise or utilize the Whole Body Vibration equipment for 10 minutes immediately after their treatments.

Without the extra water it will be more difficult for your body to eliminate the contents released from the treatment. Give your body the help it needs to carry away the toxins and other substances released by the body that were stored in the fat cells.

Exercising is important to increase fluid movement throughout the body so that the newly released components can be burned as an energy source. After each treatment, participate in some kind of physical activity in addition to your daily routine.
NOTE: Even a small increase in activity, such as an afternoon walk, will improve your end results!

It is important to not eat any food 2-4 hrs before treatment. In addition, no food or caloric beverages should be ingested for 2-4 hours following treatments – drink plenty of water however. Note, water should be consumed moderately prior to treatment while plenty of water is recommended following the treatment. Being that the goal is to have the YOLO Curve affect existing fat content as well as have the body process the fats that get released, any new caloric intake will simply reduce the effectiveness of this process. Allowing the body to burn the released fats will work towards gaining optimum results from treatments.

No, the treatment uses a cold laser technology that emits no heat, sound or vibrations. The YOLO Curve acts as on photobiomodulatory principles.

The laser disrupts the external membrane of the fat cell, inducing lipolysis.

Triglycerides: Water, Glycerol, and Free Fatty Acids.

Once the Free Fatty Acids leave the cell and enter the interstitial space, it is then absorbed by the lymphatic system. Additionally, when combined with oxygen, Free Fatty Acids produce energy.

Glycerol diffuses widely and rapidly throughout the total body water, passes through the blood stream and appears in the urine. Additionally, Glycerol is converted by the liver into a useful energy source – Glucose.

No. The YOLO Curve is a safe and effective low-level laser device. However, as with most lasers, the device’s laser must never be projected directly into the eyes.

General precautions for the use of lasers should always be considered before using the YOLO Curve laser. A physician should be consulted if the client is dealing with:
Pregnancy, Epilepsy, Immuno-suppressive disorders, Thyroid Gland Dysfunction, Uncontrolled Hypertension, Pacemakers, Cancer, Heart Disease or Cardiac Arrhythmias, Liver or Kidney Disorders.
The YOLO Curve is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

The reason why the technique is termed Low Level is that the optimum levels of energy density delivered are low when compared to other forms of laser therapy as practiced for ablation, cutting, and thermally coagulating tissue. In general, the power densities used for LLLT are lower than those needed to produce heating of tissue, i.e., less than 100 mW/cm2, depending on wavelength and tissue type.

Yes. There are thousands of published studies that describe the positive effects of laser therapy. These studies range from studies on individual cell types to in vivo double blind cross-over studies. The areas of study range from wound healing to Musculoskeletal conditions and have been conducted on different types of laser devices. Medline is a very good database search engine that can provide abstracts and can sell literature. There are also many books on the subject.
