Laser Lipo: What You Need To Know To Get Started
The term "laser lipo" refers to the use of lasers to treat fat in the body. There are two types of laser therapy: therapeutic and cosmetic. Therapeutic laser treatments are used to heal injuries and improve overall health. Cosmetic laser treatments are used to reduce fat, tighten skin, and treat cellulite. Laser lipo is an innovative treatment that improves traditional liposuction procedures.
How Laser Lipo Works
In laser lipo, a laser is used to heat up fat cells beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat), which causes them to release their contents into the bloodstream.
The body then metabolizes these fats as energy. This process is known as "lipolysis".
Laser lipo treatments are designed to target only fat cells, which means that the procedure doesn't damage other tissues like muscle or skin.
The laser lipo procedure is performed in two stages: firstly, to treat larger areas of fat where there are multiple pockets of fat deposits; secondly, to treat smaller pockets of fat around problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or knees.
Benefits of Laser Lipo
Laser lipo has many benefits over traditional liposuction, including:
1. Little to no downtime
Recovery from traditional liposuction can take weeks due to swelling and bruising around the treated area. But because laser lipo targets only subcutaneous fat, patients can return to normal activities within days of their procedure.
2. Less discomfort
Because there isn't any cutting or suction involved, there's less pain and swelling associated with laser lipo than with traditional liposuction. You may also experience less bruising after laser lipo because your blood vessels aren't damaged by needles or suction tubes during treatment.
3. Improves your body shape
Laser lipo is ideal for those with limited fat deposits in specific areas of their body, such as hips and thighs, or even "muffin tops." The procedure can also help improve cellulite's appearance by tightening skin and smoothing out dimples caused by excess fat.
Laser lipo helps patients improve body shape and contour by shrinking fat cells.
Laser lipo can be used on many parts of the body, including:
- Backside (buttocks)
Laser lipo is a non-invasive way of using lasers to treat body fat. It requires little to no downtime, doesn't involve the discomfort and pain of traditional liposuction, and helps improve your body shape. If you have been considering liposuction, you should talk to your doctor about laser lipo instead. It is a safer and quicker procedure that you can use to achieve some of the same results as traditional liposuction surgery.
