Lipolite Laser Liposculpture in Danville, California
Lipolite laser liposculpture is a body sculpting and
contouring procedure that uses the suction of traditional liposuction with the
fat-melting abilities of fiber optic lasers. The combination of the two methods
effectively rids fat, but with less trauma, discomfort, swelling, bruising,
blood loss and downtime associated with traditional liposuction alone. Healing
times are also faster and general anesthesia is not necessary.
After numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic, a
tiny incision is made to allow a cannula (thin metal tube) to be guided into
the cut. The cannula has a hollow center in which the specialist guides an
optical laser through to discharge laser energy and liquefy the fat cells that
are then suctioned out through the same tube.
By first heating and breaking apart the fat cells with laser
energy, the fat is more easily suctioned out. The laser’s heat also has another
benefit: it encourages collagen production which, over time, can lead to the
treatment area being firmer and tighter.
Lipolite laser liposculpture is best for men and women who
are in good health and have stubborn areas of fat that do not respond well to
traditional liposuction and regular diet and exercise. The procedure is not
designed to treat large areas of fat, rather it works on small regions that are
located in the:
The entire outpatient procedure takes up to an hour for each
area being treated, and typically only one session is needed. Initial results
should be immediate following Lipolite laser liposculpture, with more apparent
outcomes occurring during the subsequent 6 to 8 weeks. To sustain results, the
patient should maintain a healthy diet and engage in regular exercise. This
will better ensure that fat will not return to the treatment area.
