Slim Down The Easy Way With Laser Lipo

Liposuction has long been used to remove unwanted fat from certain parts of the body. Thanks to technological advancements, laser lipo is now available to do many of the same things that traditional liposuction can do. If you're striving to do better things for your body, laser lipo is something you should consider.

How Laser Lipo Works

The fat cells that form the extra bulges of fat on your body can be removed quicker through liposuction than with diet and exercise. Laser lipo works to turn fat into liquid form like traditional liposuction does to make the fat easier to remove. However, with laser lipo, laser technology is used to liquefy the fat instead of an injectable solution.

After the fat has been turned into a liquid form, a handheld tube known as a cannula can be inserted through small incisions that have been made in the skin to suck out the fat. The fat can be removed from the tummy, thighs, and other parts of the body that have excess fat.  

There is also a procedure known as laser lipolysis. This procedure often works well in reducing fat cells by heating them instead of removing them through suction.

Minimally Invasive 

One of the biggest advantages of laser lipo is that it's generally less invasive and gentler on the body than standard liposuction. You also won't have to receive as many injections with laser lipo. Laser lipolysis doesn't require any injections or incisions at all.

Tighter Skin

An added benefit of the laser lipo procedure is that it can tighten loose skin in addition to removing unwanted fat. The heat from the laser can cause the body to make more natural collagen, which can work wonders in reducing skin sagginess. You also may not have as much hanging skin in the areas where fat is removed if you opt for laser lipo. 

Fast Results

You'll likely see noticeable results immediately after treatment. However, a full recovery might take a few weeks, but you'll likely be able to return to many of your normal activities after a few days of healing. Laser lipolysis usually requires little to no recovery downtime. You may even be able to maintain your results permanently if you commit to regular exercise and healthy eating.

If you need a little help with getting rid of unwanted fat and tightening loose skin, laser lipo may be your answer. For more information on laser lipo, contact a professional near you.
