What is Laser Lipo Treatment?
Laser Lipo is the colloquial name for laser lipolysis. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical liposculpture procedure for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat such as saddlebags, love handles and double chins. It effectively reduces areas of fat that are commonly resistant to diet or exercise in a way that has far fewer side effects than traditional procedures such as liposuction.
The procedure uses low-level lasers to effectively ‘melt’ unwanted fat in the treated area. The fat cells selectively absorb the energy from the lasers which changes the permeability of the cell membranes. Stored triglycerides are therefore able to leak from the cells and are broken down into free fatty acids, glycerol and water. These breakdown products are then used as a source of energy or are transported by the body’s own mechanisms through the lymphatic system, the system responsible for removing waste products from body tissues.
The removal of the liquefied fats can be accelerated by performing some cardio exercise immediately post treatment, for example by using a whole body vibration machine, using a Stairmaster or treadmill or going for a brisk walk. It is also advisable to drink plenty of water post treatment to assist the lymphatic system in removal of the fats.
It is important to note that the light emitted by the lasers is at a wavelength that has no effect on surrounding cell types such as skin, nerves and blood vessels. The treatment is therefore very safe in addition to being extremely effective and painless.
This is a totally non-invasive treatment; there is no need for any incisions or anaesthetics (local or general). This obviously eliminates a number of risks that are inherent in other types of procedure. Laser lipo treatments using Totally Lipo equipment is a cost effective, convenient alternative to traditional liposuction.
