Cool Lipo is a minimally invasive laser liposuction
procedure that removes fat and tightens skin. Cool Lipo uses a narrow laser
inserted under your skin to melt fat. Cool Lipo can be performed in many areas
of the body, especially hard to reach areas like the neck. Recovery is milder
than traditional liposuction methods.
How Cool Lipo is performed
Cool Lipo can be performed in-office or at a surgical facility using local or general anesthesia depending on the extent of your
Small incisions are made around the treatment area, and a
laser fiber is inserted under your skin. The laser is moved back and forth
along the treatment area. The laser melts your fat, and the heat also triggers
new collagen growth in your skin which can make it firmer and tighter. The fat
is then suctioned away using a narrow tube called a cannula, and your incisions
are closed and bandaged.
Recovery and results
You can expect about three to five days of downtime,
but this can vary depending on the extent of your procedure. You may have some
swelling, bruising, and mild pain for a few days. You’ll see immediate results
after treatment, but your final results will be more apparent after a month or
so when the swelling goes down completely and your skin begins to tighten.
