Laser Fat Removal by Skintology MedSpa in New York, NY

Obesity,Cellulite.,Folds,Of,Excess,Fat,On,Woman,Waist.,Before Like liposuction, laser lipolysis – laser fat removal – removes fat deposits. However, it’s less painful than liposuction and has a shorter recovery time. You also have less risk of having loose skin after the procedure.

It generally takes about a half-hour to do laser lipolysis, and you can return to your normal activities right away. It is done in a doctor’s office instead of the hospital.

How Laser Fat Removal Works

Your doctor attaches applicators that look like paddles to the area you want to remove the fat. The heat from the paddles heats the fat cells under your skin enough so the cell membranes are damaged. The cells then start to die, and your body absorbs the dead cells.

It takes about six weeks for you to see the final results of laser fat removal. For optimal results, you may need more than one treatment. Although you are not limited in your activity immediately after the treatment, some people might be sore or have redness at the treatment site.

Where You Can Use Laser Fat Removal

You can use laser lipolysis in several areas, including:

  • Flanks
  • Belly
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Back

For other areas, you can use laser liposuction or regular liposuction. Be sure to consult with your doctor so they can recommend the best course of action for you.

Benefits of Laser Fat Removal

Patients have many benefits when choosing laser fat removal, including a less invasive procedure that allows them to resume normal activities right away.

Because the laser also stimulates collagen production, another benefit that you might notice is that the skin in that area is tighter, smoother, and younger-looking. With regular liposuction, you do not have this benefit and thus have a higher risk of lax or saggy skin.
