Laser Lipo: A Detailed Guide To Non-Invasive Fat Removal Procedure img 1

You all know about liposuction, the procedure of removing fat from the body areas such as the abdomen, thighs, neck, and arms. Liposuction is an invasive procedure, but there is another way of removing fat from the body without making any single cut to your body.

This non-invasive method is called Laser lipo, a slimming process without surgery, or even downtime. It entirely relies on laser energy to reduce body fat with minimum effort.

To begin with, the lipo laser, let us first understand how the process works.

How Does Laser Lipo Work?

The procedure works by reducing fat cells by shrinking them and not by removing them through invasive procedures.

It involves multiple sessions — during each session, laser diode pads are placed over the patient’s body directly under the supervision of an expert technician. The laser energy enters into the fat cells creating small holes in membranes causing fatty cells to release fatty acids, glycerol, and water stored in the body. It results in the shrinking of the fat, thus reducing the desired weight. The discharged fat cell is then flooded out of the body via the lymphatic system, or the body burns it as energy.

Who is Eligible For Laser Lipo?

The procedure does not apply to all the people looking for weight loss at an extensive level. You must satisfy the following terms to be the perfect candidate:

  • You are overweight by 25 pounds from your ideal weight.
  • It is more about a “particular area problem” than complete body loss.
  • You are healthy and have good skin elasticity.

Still have doubts, consult with a specialist to find out about your candidature. The doctor will help you identify whether you are a suitable candidate or not.

What Is The Laser Lipo Process Like?

The procedure begins with applying the pads on the targeted area, deluging them with laser energy for at least 10-20 minutes during the session day. The process may continue by removing the same patch and applying them to other areas of your body.

You may see some instant results, but you have to attend multiple sessions for the best outcomes.

The total time required for best results may vary between patients depending on their desires, but mostly it will take 6–8 treatment sessions. You can attend 2-4 treatment sessions per week. 

Also, since the process is non-invasive, you don’t need any downtime after completing the treatment.

What Areas Can Be Cured With Laser Lipo

Lipo Laser can treat almost all body parts that are capable of storing fat. The most common body parts treated by these methods are:

  • Abdomen
  • Waistline
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Under the chin

How Long Do Laser Lipo Results Last?

Laser lipo is not a permanent solution for fat loss as the procedure does not destroy fat cells instead drains them of their contents, which makes the fat cells proficient in restoring the fat.

Thus it would help if you took a proper diet after having the lipo laser treatment; eating lean protein can help. Also, it is suggested to skip alcoholic beverages and sugar. Regular exercises are also crucial as you must burn the calories to see the effects for a longer time.

How Much Does Laser Lipo Cost?

The cost of lipo laser treatment may vary depending on the size and the area you want to treat. It also depends on the clinic you choose for the treatment. However, the approximate cost for the procedure is $1000 or more for six to eight sessions.
