Liposuction is an invasive procedure that requires a lengthy recovery period. Alternatively, laser lipolysis provides effective results with very minimal downtime. This treatment is designed to effectively target fat in problem areas, providing you with positive results without a lot of risks.
The Benefits of Laser Lipolysis
Laser lipolysis is an advanced, FDA-approved procedure that uses laser energy to remove fat cells from the body and contour the area while tightening the skin. This minimally invasive procedure provides many benefits, including:
- Less scarring associated with the procedure
- Less trauma
- Less downtime
- Shorter procedure time
- Fewer risks
- Fewer complications
- Skin tightening
- Effective fat removal
What Is the Procedure Like?
Laser lipolysis works similarly to traditional liposuction, but it uses laser technology. The laser heats up fat cells in the targeted area and liquefies them. This makes it much easier to remove. Due to the fact that smaller cannulas are used in the removal process, there is less trauma and less recovery time required. The laser drastically improves the skin area and helps to tighten its appearance.
What Are the Risks of Laser Lipolysis?
Even though laser lipolysis is considered incredibly safe, people who are pregnant or take specific types of medications should not undergo this procedure. Due to the fact that the treatment is minimally invasive, there is a far lower risk of serious side effects.
Some of the common side effects include bleeding and swelling, soreness, and bruising, most of which are mild. Some patients have reported feeling nauseated or having prolonged bruising or fevers. However, serious infections and other side effects are rare.
What Is the Recovery Like?
After undergoing laser lipolysis, patients are able to return to work within 24 hours in most cases. Many people notice the positive effects of the treatment immediately. The treated area will continue to improve over several months as it heals.
