What is Laser Lipo?


The Laser liposuction we provide is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to melt away fat under the skin. It’s also called laser lipolysis. Traditional liposuction requires an invasive procedure to remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, neck, and arms. But there's another way to slim down without surgery or even downtime. It's called noninvasive laser lipo, and it relies on laser energy instead of incisions to slim the body quickly and with minimal effort on the part of the patient.

HOW DOES LASER LIPO WORK? Unlike conventional liposuction, the idea of noninvasive laser lipo is not to remove fat cells, but to shrink them. The laser energy penetrates down to the fat cells and creates tiny holes in their membranes. This causes the fat cells to release their stored fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body and then shrink, potentially resulting in lost inches. The body then flushes out the expelled fat-cell contents via the lymphatic system or burns them for energy.

It’s important to note, however, that much like liposuction, laser lipo is not a form of weight control. Instead, the procedure is a tool for fat volume reduction, meaning its goal is to reduce the volume of fat within a bulge. A healthy lifestyle is necessary to ensure the results of the procedure last long term.

WHO'S ELIGIBLE FOR LASER LIPO?


The pool of ideal candidates for laser lipo is a little bit smaller than for traditional lipo because the procedure isn't perfect for extensive weight loss. It might be right for you if you're:



  • Only about 25 pounds over your ideal weight

  • More concerned with "problem areas" than total-body weight loss

  • In good health with good skin elasticity

WHAT IS THE LASER LIPO PROCESS LIKE?

A technician applies pads to the targeted area, inundating it with laser energy for about 10 to 20 minutes. If necessary they may then move the pads to focus on another area and repeat the treatment. And that's about it. You may see a difference immediately, but for best results, you'll need to return.


Here are some fast facts about the recommended cycle:


Treatment schedule

Though some clients begin to notice results after only a few sessions, most require 6–8 treatments to see maximum results.


Frequency

Two treatments per week for four weeks are recommended.


Downtime

Because the treatment is not invasive, no downtime is required.
