What does lipo laser consist of?
What is the laser lipo procedure?
It is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to effectively and safely remove fat from specific areas of the body.
Also known as laser liposuction or laser lipolysis, this procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction and is performed under local anesthesia.
During the process, a small fiber-optic cannula is inserted under the skin through a narrow incision.
The tube emits laser energy that is directed toward the fat cells in the treatment area, and this laser energy penetrates the skin so that the fat cells absorb the energy in the form of heat. As a result, the fat cells are broken down and converted into a liquid substance that is released from the body through the lymphatic system and the body’s natural drainage and elimination processes.
Is the procedure painful?
The laser lipo procedure is generally considered less painful than traditional liposuction. During treatment, patients may feel a temporary warmth or tingling sensation in the treated area.
After treatment, some patients may experience mild pain, swelling or bruising in the treated area, but these side effects are temporary and will disappear within a few days. It should be noted that the experience of pain varies from patient to patient and depends on individual sensitivity.
In what areas of the body can it be used?
It is generally used to treat specific areas of the body that have fat accumulation that is resistant to diet and exercise. The most common areas treated with laser lipo are the abdomen, flanks or “love handles”, back, arms and thighs. This treatment can help reduce fat in these areas and improve the overall appearance of the thighs.
Is it possible to gain weight after the process?
Yes, it is possible to gain weight after laser lipo treatment if healthy diet and exercise habits are not followed. The process permanently removes fat cells in the treated area, but does not prevent the remaining fat cells in the body from expanding if more calories are consumed than are burned.
Therefore, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly after treatment to maintain long-term results. Good candidates for laser lipo are people who have a body mass index (BMI) within the healthy range and have specific areas of localized fat that have not responded well to diet and exercise. This treatment is not suitable for people who are obese, as it targets specific areas of localized fat and not generalized weight loss.
