Laser lipo, or its formal name laser lipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that targets stubborn fat pockets such as double chin, saddle bags, muffin top and more. It can be effective in removing fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise.
HOW DOES LASER LIPOLYSIS WORK?
Laser-assisted lipolysis works through selective photothermia, which occurs when laser-light energy is absorbed by fat and then converted into heat energy. The laser energy is transmitted to the adipocytes via the passage of a laser fiber. The adipocytes absorb the energy and rupture, yielding permanent volume reduction.
Laser-assisted lipolysis is a photo thermal process secondary to the absorption of laser energy by water which raises the temperature of the subcutaneous space and lower dermis. This causes contraction in all layers due to collagen remodeling.
The laser energy is delivered by thin fibers passed within the subcutaneous space. The main chromophore is water, which causes heating of the subcutaneous space and dermis. The lower dermis is heated to temperatures 5-8 degrees Centigrade higher than the surface of the skin. Tissue tightening through coagulation occurs at internal temperatures of 40 – 42 degrees Centigrade.
LASER LIPOLYSIS TREATMENT
Laser-assisted lipolysis is performed at our facilities under local anesthesia known as tumescent anesthesia. Numbing medications are injected using thin needles and the patient remains fully awake and conversant during the procedure, allowing us to do real time intra-operative evaluation of the procedure by making the patient stand up or move side to side as needed. Power assisted liposuction tools are used for highly fibrotic or thick areas and laser is used for remodeling of the collagen and destruction of adeposites(fat cell). If adeposites are not destroyed, as happens with traditional liposuction, they will fill up with fat molecules again in future to reduce the benefits and effects of the liposuction. The down time is minimal, and one can be back to non-laborious work in 3-4 days after the procedure is performed.
