If a few stubborn pounds are preventing you from achieving your ideal figure, you may be a good candidate for the LipoLite body sculpting procedure. The LipoLite laser-assisted lipolysis system is a next generation fat reduction procedure designed to treat smaller problem areas, including the love handles, lower abs and arms, that are not responding to diet and exercise.
The LipoLite procedure works slightly differently than traditional liposuction, because it breaks down the fat cells and heats up the skin to create a tightening effect. Here’s a close look at how LipoLite laser treatments work, and if you may be a good candidate for the procedure:
How LipoLite Works
The LipoLite laser procedure is designed by the makers of VelaShape and works to target small, stubborn areas of fatty tissue that are often not accessible by traditional liposuction. The procedure helps to prevent sagging of the skin, and uses a precise and powerful laser beam to liquefy the fat cells and so that they can be suctioned away with ease. A tiny incision is made to extract the fat through the thin tube, so there is no need for stitches.
Only one treatment is required per area, and most treatments are performed in under an hour. Since there is no downtime involved, the patient can return to work within a couple of days and results will continue to improve over six to eight weeks.
What to Expect with LipoLite
LipoLite is a minimally-invasive procedure that is often used as a complement to traditional liposuction procedures, and as an alternative to procedures that involve general anesthesia and the use of a wider cannula (the suction tube). The LipoLite laser procedure can be part of a complete body sculpting solution when combined with VelaShape, a skin tightening and body contouring procedure.
The LipoLite procedure is safe and effective on all skin types, and can be administered to the neck, back, bra line, love handles, buttocks and “saddlebags”. It is a less-invasive alternative to traditional liposuction and body sculpting procedures, and is a more comfortable, targeted solution for those who are struggling to lose a few stubborn pounds. Some of the key benefits of the LipoLite procedure include:
- Targeted fat removal
- Destroys fat cells permanently
- Can treat smaller areas of the face and neck
- Has a skin tightening effect that contours the tissues
- Results are maintained with a healthy diet and exercise regimen
- Can be performed on multiple areas of the body during a single treatment
The session typically lasts approximately 30 minutes to one hour for each area treated, and since the procedure is less traumatic than traditional procedures, most patients can be treated using only local anesthesia. The LipoLite treatment plan is typically less expensive than traditional liposuction.
