Laser lipolysis is a procedure that uses laser energy to change the shape and appearance of your body. There are many other types of lipolysis such as injections lipolysis or radio wave treatments, but laser lipolysis is the most popular and common technique.
Laser lipolysis targets smaller deposits of fat on specific parts of the body. One may be a good candidate for laser lipolysis if they have fatty tissue on the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks that they wish to get rid of. This procedure is not recommended for people who are obese.
As the name indicates, in Laser lipolysis lasers are used to break fat cells apart, thereby reducing the volume of fatty tissue. This process also helps to tighten the skin in the area where the treatment is performed and one may also find that skin is smoother than before. The lasers used in this procedure are safe for clinical use and do not have any risks.
There is a shorter recovery period. One can usually resume their normal activities in a few days after laser lipolysis. By comparison, liposuction typically comes with a recovery period of several weeks.
Laser lipolysis may change the appearance of the body, but diet and exercise will determine if the results are permanent. If a person does see visible results from laser lipolysis, they should be permanent — provided the person does not gain any weight because If they do gain weight, the results from lipolysis will likely disappear.
