Laser lipo is a minimally invasive procedure for reducing unwanted body fat that uses laser energy to melt stored body fat. Short for laser lipolysis, laser lipo can melt unwanted fat in your:
Laser lipo provides results similar to liposuction without surgery or a lengthy recovery period. It’s best used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise to provide the best results.
Laser lipo involves the application of laser light to your skin with a handheld wand. As the wand emits light, the light energy penetrates through your skin to be absorbed by fat cells underneath your skin. As the fat cells heat up, they melt and are absorbed by your lymphatic system, which flushes them out as waste products.
Research has shown that laser lipo also induces the formation of new collagen in your skin. Collagen is responsible for skin’s elasticity, though people lose collagen through aging. As fat cells are melted and your skin produces new collagen, your skin becomes tighter, and this can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Before beginning your laser lipo session, your provider gives you a pair of protective eyeglasses to wear to prevent the laser from irritating your eyes. You’ll sit or lie on the treatment table with the treatment area exposed. The rest of your skin remains covered, either with your clothing or with a cloth for modesty.
When your provider turns on the handheld laser wand, you’ll feel a comfortable warming sensation. The wand is moved over your skin for a specified period of time to fully melt the superficial layers of fat underneath your skin. In most cases, treatments last about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
You can expect to see results as early as six weeks after your laser lipo session. This is the amount of time it takes for your lymphatic system to flush out the melted body fat. Your provider may recommend multiple sessions over six weeks to three months to see maximum results.
You can return to your normal activities immediately after each session without the need for downtime like other procedures.
