There are a lot of popular cosmetic procedures currently aimed at helping people lose stubborn fat. Very few of them can do what laser lipo can. Not only does this treatment help you eliminate pockets of unwanted fat, it also tightens up the skin in the process. Here at ARR Medical Group, we are proud to provide this fat reduction procedure to our patients and invite you to learn more about it.
How Does Laser Lipo Work?
This procedure uses cutting-edge laser technology to heat the fat underneath the skin. Different wavelengths are used in order to accomplish different things. On top of breaking up fat to make it easier to remove, these wavelengths also stimulate the production of collagen. This is what makes this an ideal procedure for people concerned about sagging skin after a significant weight loss. The fiber-optic lasers are inserted beneath the skin, allowing much more intensity to be used without damaging the surface layer.
Who Can Benefit from Laser Lipo?
Laser lipo is intended for people who have tried diet and exercise but have not been able to achieve their ideal degree of fat reduction. Ideally, the person should be in reasonable range of their ideal body weight. They should also be in good overall health.
Laser Lipo vs. Traditional Lipo
Traditional liposuction and laser lipo are different in three significant ways. When deciding which is the better option for you, consider the following things:
- Technique: When you have a traditional liposuction procedure, the fat needs to be manually broken up before it can be removed. Laser lipo, on the other hand, liquefies the fat using laser energy. This is easier and your body and also makes it easier to remove the fat.
- Recovery: This is one area where laser lipo is a clear favorite. After having a traditional liposuction procedure, people are often required to set aside weeks of downtime for recovery. This is significantly shortened with laser lipo.
- Skin Tightening: Due to the production of collagen with laser lipo, a certain level of skin tightening results afterward. Those who get traditional liposuction, on the other hand, often need a separate procedure to tighten up the skin.
