What Is Laser Liposuction, and Does It Help to Reduce Weight?

Laser Lipo is a less invasive alternative to liposuction to reduce fat from targeted areas of the body. Instead of going under the knife, Laser Lipo enables you to burn fat for about 30 to 60 minutes. The process is continued at least three times a week for a total of 6 to 8 weeks. A critical distinction between Lipo Suction and laser Lipo is the required downtime. The latter needs minimal downtime.

Laser Lipo, also termed as Allura Lipo usually costs between $2500 to $4500. The total treatment cost would depend on the size of the treatment area.

However, as the process is a relatively new treatment technology to reduce or burn fat, you must be concerned about the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of it. So, let’s dig into some frequently asked questions by our potential clients.

Why should you consider having Lipo Suction?

A perfect candidate for the process is the one committing to a healthy diet and regular exercising to keep their weight under check. The candidate must not be heavily overweight and should be concerned about one specific body area requiring treatment. Liposuction is not for people looking to lose tremendous weight on one go but works perfectly for people looking to modify a particular part of the body by burning fat.

You should also have considerable time in hand to commit to regular visits for multiple sessions that go on for several weeks. The number of sittings would differ for each person. Your doctor would provide you with an appropriate treatment plan.

Pregnant women, patients fixing hormonal imbalance, and people with pacemakers cannot use this method.

How does the process work?

Using laser lipo, a specific body area is targeted with an extensive focus on fat accumulation. Each laser lipo machine is equipped with lasers meant for puncturing holes in your fat cells. The lasers steadily pierce the cell to deflate it. The targeted fat stays in the body, unlike liposuction, where the fat might start reappearing in other places. The stored fat is then released into interstitial fluid and flushed out of the lymphatic system.

What does it feel like?

Depending on the targeted area for fat removal, you would need to strip down to your underwear before the process begins. You would then need to lay on a table as the technician points the laser at the targeted area of treatment. You should just sit still and see the laser do its magic! You would not feel anything as the low-level lasers are essentially cold lasers causing no tenderness, redness, swelling, and pain.

You are advised to stay hydrated starting a few days before and after the treatment because the laser causes your fat cells to discharge their contents into your bloodstream. This might cause you to feel fatigued, sick, or dizzy if you have not drunk a sufficient amount of water.

Is laser lipo effective?

As per a study released by the International Journal of Metabolism and Endocrinology, there is evidence of laser lipo effectively reducing unwanted fat. However, more extensive research is necessary to provide strong evidence on its safety and effectiveness. FDA has approved this treatment for general use. However, this treatment augments your healthy eating and weight management program. This is not a cure-all weight loss solution.

How long does Laser Lipo last?

Lipolaser is marketed as the less invasive process of eliminating unwanted fat. The treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes per area, depending on the size of the treatment area. The effects are primarily permanent as the fat of targeted areas is deactivated using a laser beam, leaving them incapable of storing fat anymore. One significant advantage of the process is the low downtime, with some experts claiming that patients can go back to their everyday life within two days of getting the treatment.

Is Laser Lipo as effective as Liposuction?

Laser Lipo aims to melt the fat from the targeted region of the body, thereby eliminating the need to scrapping the skin from muscle tissue, which is often the case with the traditional liposuction method.

How many sessions of Laser Lipo are needed to see results?

Typically, each session lasts up to 30 minutes. For best results, usually, the patient would need at least three sessions per week for the next six to eight weeks, depending on the targeted area.
