Non-Invasive Alternatives to Lipolite Laser Liposculpture

Lipolite Laser Liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure used in patients who desire a fit body with reduced amounts of adipose tissues. However, many patients are scared off by the idea of a surgery and the risk associated with such a procedure. There are a few methods that may be used to achieve similar effects as Lipolite Laser Liposculture, but will not require incisions.

The Lipolite Laser Liposculpture is a minimally invasive slimming procedure that can be targeted in more sensitive areas that cannot be treated with more aggressive lasers or surgery. The procedure is performed with the help of lasers, which will destroy the adipose tissues and cause a tightening of the skin covering the treated area (through the stimulation of the collagen). The main disadvantage of this treatment is that it requires a few incisions.

Lipodissolve

Lipodissolve is a recently launched treatment that can have slimming effects without the need for surgery. Lipodissolve is a treatment that will be administered in a number of injections. These injections contain drugs and enzymes that are also found in the human body. The substances in the injections will target the fat tissues and slowly break these down. The body’s lymphatic system will eliminate the liquid fat and the remaining toxins through the urine and in some cases through sweat.

The fat is not eliminated immediately after the injections are administered. It may take up to 12 weeks for the entire targeted fat to be eliminated. Patients who have a slower metabolism may have a more difficult time eliminating the fat cells, while patients with a faster metabolism will get rid of the fat quickly. The injections may cause some swelling, but the recovery time is two to four days and there will be no pain involved during or after the procedure.

Thermage

Thermage is a procedure that is similar to Lipolite in the method used. Laser beams are applied on the areas with the targeted fat. The fat is dissolved and then eliminated through urine. The collagen under the skin is also activated, so the skin will become tighter within four to eight weeks after the procedure.  Just as Lipolite, Thermage may be applied in sensitive areas such as the face, chin or neck. The lasers may cause temporary swelling, which will be present for up to five days after the treatment. Typically, no bruising is experienced after a Theramge treatment.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is similar to Lipodissolve, as the treatment also involves the administration of injectable solutions. The solutions are made up of natural substances and medication, which are injected in the mesoderm, the middle layer of the skin. In addition to removing fat, Mesotherapy is also known to diminish the appearance of cellulite or orange peel skin.

Massage Treatment

Massage is also a way to destroy fat cells and reduce the fat deposits on certain areas of the body. The massage may be applied on the face or other more sensitive areas, but it may also target the stomach, the thighs and other problem areas. This type of treatment requires several sessions until results are visible.
