Lipotherme is a safe and effective laser treatment used to liquefy fat in problem areas of the body. As well as removing fat from the body, Lipotherme is used to contract the skin, making it firmer and smoother. Often, the procedure is an ideal alternative to liposuction, especially for adolescents unwilling to undergo surgery.
Can Adolescents Receive Lipotherme?
The Lipotherme treatment is one of the least invasive lipolysis procedures in practice, and teenagers often are not ready to endure a scary surgery such as liposuction. The Lipotherme treatment uses heat and lasers to destroy unwanted fat in problems areas and refines the contours of the body. In essence, the procedure liquefies fat cells and melts them away.
The ideal adolescent candidate for Lipotherme is one who is struggling with her weight and wants a quick and virtually painless treatment. The treatment can be used on problem areas of the body, such as the abdomen, legs, thighs and arms. In addition to being quick and painless, the treatment has essentially no downtime, and patients should be able to resume their normal daily activities the following day. Dramatic improvements may not be seen until up to 16 weeks following the treatment, but most patients should notice a difference within 1 to 2 weeks after they receive the Lipotherme procedure.
