What is Laser Lipolysis?

Get rid of stubborn and unwanted fat with Laser lipolysis

For those who wish to get rid of excess fat around thighs, abdomen, forearms, buttocks, and other parts of the body, laser lipolysis is worth considering. The procedure is quick, painless, and safe way to get thinner and slimmer body without the hassle of surgery.

Laser lipolysis is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat to melt away the body fat. Unlike traditional liposuction procedure that makes use of vacuum suction to remove excess fat from the body, laser lipolysis uses laser to rapidly dissolve the fat in target areas.  Laser beams enter the subcutaneous tissue in the skin and melt the fat, without damaging the surrounding tissues though. As well as breaking the fat deposits in the skin, laser lipolysis helps stimulate the production of new collagen, resulting in tighter and better looking skin.

Laser lipolysis is ideal for various areas of the body that accumulate fat, such as inner thighs, buttocks, forearms, knees, and abdomen. It can also be used to sensitive areas like lower eyelids for improving the appearance of the eyes and making one look younger and attractive.

The procedure is easy and very quick. It doesn’t require hospitalisation. Patients are able to return to their normal activities the same day. However, patients are given local anaesthesia before the treatment.

Anyone who has stubborn and unwanted fat areas in one’s body can go for laser lipolysis.
