Laser-Lipo

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 non-invasive laser lipo is not to remove fat cells, but to shrink them.

How Does Laser Lipo Work?

During each session of laser-lipo a technician places pads equipped with laser diodes directly onto the skin. 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. 


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  


What Is The Laser Lipo Process Like?


The technician applies the 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.


How Much Does Laser Lipo Cost?


The cost of laser lipo can vary considerably depending on the size of the area you want to treat, as well as your location and the experience of the clinic you visit. A typical series of eight sessions can easily cost upward of $1,000.  A typical deal from us might cost about $50 for a single treatment, or around $30–$50 per treatment if you purchase multiple sessions at once.


What Areas Can Be Treated With Laser Lipo?


All parts of the body that store fat can be treated.

The most common treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Waistline
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Under the chin 


How Long Do Laser Lipo Results Last?


Because  Laser Lipo does not destroy fat cells but rather empties them of their contents, the fat cells are capable of storing fat again. A balanced diet is the only way to ensure lasting results.

Sometimes the term "laser lipo" is used to describe conventional surgical liposuction that incorporates lasers to enhance the results, but that's not how we're using it here.
