If diet, exercise, and other weight loss methods haven’t eliminated your stubborn fat bulges, several non-invasive fat reduction procedures help to smooth them out. One of the most popular is the laser lipo.
Laser lipolysis is an alternative to traditional liposuction that liquefies and removes fat from your body. There are several different varieties of laser lipo, depending on what part of the body you want help sculpting.
CoolLipo by CoolTouch, Inc. is a gentle procedure that uses short-pulse laser wavelengths to disrupt fat distribution in your:
The short pulses that CoolLipo contour and firm your skin while protecting non-fatty tissue.
CoolLipo offers a less invasive alternative to a face or neck lift to treat the stubborn fat deposits located in the smaller areas of the face, chin, and neck that tend to be particularly resistant to weight loss.
Other bonuses of CoolLipo include:
- Collagen renewal
- Minimal healing times
- Less cost and risk
Doctors generally perform CoolLipo in the office using local anesthetics.
LipoLite is a minimally invasive procedure that melts fat and removes it from the body. Like other laser liposuction techniques, LipoLite works particularly well in small areas resistant to weight loss and exercise, including your:
- Bra line
- Male chest
- Stubborn areas of the thighs.
Many doctors use LipoLite in conjunction with traditional liposuction. If used on its own, the LipoLite procedure lasts between 30-60 minutes and is done in the surgeon’s office. Both the incision and recovery time are minimal.
LipoTherme and LipoControl
LipoTherme and LipoControl are two technologies that plastic surgeons use together to offer optimal results.
LipoTherme disrupts fatty deposits with heat allowing you to achieve the best results on the smallest and most stubborn fat pockets, including your:
LipoControl offers doctors an on-screen image of the area being treated. Allowing surgeons to look beneath the skin enables them to see exactly what they are doing and where they are working. LipoControl uses heat imaging to map the laser’s location and power. When used with LipoTherme, LipoControl strengthens and weakens the laser as your doctor moves it beneath your skin, and if movement completely stops, LipoControl turns the laser off.
When used together, LipoTherme and LipoControl offer the best possible laser technology results with less bruising and bleeding, as well as reduced cost, risk, and downtime.
ProLipo PLUS offers surgeons flexible technology that enables them to provide the best results. The laser in ProLipo PLUS provides your doctor with the ability to use multiple wavelengths during your procedure. This flexibility allows your surgeon to target fibrous and otherwise difficult fat deposits, including those located in your:
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Upper arms
ProLipo PLUS gives your doctor the flexibility to remove more fatty deposits, tighten your skin, or perform both at the same time.
The technology offered with ProLipo PLUS offers excellent results, whether used alone or used in conjunction with traditional liposuction, to give your surgeon more precision.
SmartLipo helps you get rid of unsightly:
- Love handles
- Bat wings
- Muffin tops
SmartLipo LaserBodySculpting eliminates fat by targeting trouble spots that don’t respond to exercise and diet like yours:
SmartLipo tightens your skin and eliminates dimpling and sagging with just one treatment to each area. Results vary but usually become noticeable within a week. Improvements continue over three to six months.
None of these laser lipo procedures should replace diet and exercise. Non-invasive fat reduction is best done on patients that are at or near their ideal weight. These fat removal technologies work best for those who cannot get rid of stubborn fat, despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.
In addition to laser lipo, there are a variety of fat removal solutions available. You need to take the time to understand what each has to offer you.
