Lasers - Taking Liposuction to the Next Level
Liposuction has been around for a long time as a tried and tested way of removing unwanted body fat. However, the procedure's just been given a major boost. How? Through the introduction of laser liposuction. This new technique represents a giant leap forward in body sculpting and tackles head-on the main drawback of traditional liposuction—being left with sagging skin. Two well-used and effective treatments, laser lipolysis and liposuction, have been brought together to create one new super treatment—laser liposuction.
Laser Lipolysis and Liposuction—What's the Difference?
Liposuction was the first of the fat-busting treatments to be developed. It involves removing unwanted fat using vacuum suction. It can be highly effective but does have the disadvantage of leaving sagging areas of skin where large amounts of fat are removed. Laser lipolysis is a less invasive treatment which uses fibre-optic lasers to heat body fat to melting point. At the same time it has the big advantage of stimulating the production of collagen, which helps the skin to remain tighter.
What's Laser Liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a new treatment that cleverly combines both of these procedures. It allows fat to be removed while maintaining tighter skin. Especially for problem areas such as the abdomen and buttocks, this new technique is proving itself with better results than the two treatments individually. This means that bodies can be more sculpted and in extreme cases, surgery can be avoided.
Is Laser Liposuction Safe?
Studies have found laser liposuction to be safe. The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis and recovery is rapid. The key is to make sure you're being treated by someone with the right qualifications and plenty of experience. There are, of course, some risks—this is the case with all medical procedures. They aren't high, but your therapist should make a point of discussing them with you before you undergo treatment.
