Summer will be here before you know it. Is your body swimsuit ready? If not, this is the perfect time to start considering a laser lipolysis procedure that can get rid of fat and increase your confidence as the warm weather shows up.
We all want to look and feel great, but nature sometimes can use a bit of help. WIFH offers multiple procedures designed to give you just that.
This laser-assisted technique is approved by the FDA to tighten skin and melt fat cells. It’s designed to sculpt your body, improve your fat-burning capacity, and encourage the production of skin-renewing collagen. Smartlipo is ideal for people who are looking to reduce fatty deposits in areas such as the chin, back, waist, arms, thighs and belly. If you’re healthy and doing enough exercise, but still aren’t able to shed stubborn fat in target areas, Smartlipo can be a good way to create the body shape you want with minimal downtime.
Smartlipo, which you can watch a demonstration of at the right, requires a couple of hours for the procedure under local anesthesia, depending on how many areas you’d like to have done. The process uses a small cannula, or tube, which is inserted under the skin.
In traditional liposuction, this cannula is much larger and it’s used to manually scrap the fat cells from the skin. In Smartlipo, the cannula is very thin and has a laser fiber threaded through it. The laser energy is absorbed by the fat cells melting and destroying them.
The Smartlipo Triplex houses three different laser wavelengths each having a different purpose. One cauterizes blood vessels to prevent excess bleeding and reduces tissue trauma which lessens bruising. Another is attracted to the water found in the skin tissue to stimulate tightening through collagen and elastin production.
A third, has a great affinity to fat and is quickly absorbed by the fat cells, which melts them. Once the laser has melted the fat cells aspiration or suction is used to remove the liquefied fat from the body. This creates body sculpting effects with less downtime and an easy recovery in just one treatment.
This is a newer technique, one that’s just now being introduced to many places across the nation. SculpSure is the first FDA-approved laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis on the flanks and abdomen although it is being used off label to treat other areas with great success. It probably won’t be long before it is cleared by the FDA to treat most areas of the body. It’s permanent, effective and perfect for people with busy lifestyles. If you have unwanted fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise, but can’t afford any downtime this might be the body-contouring procedure for you.
SculpSure, which you can watch an overview video of on the left, works by delivering laser energy topically to break up and destroy fat cells. Similar to liposuction, SculpSure targets the fat within the cells, it actually gets rid of entire fat cell, so the fat does not come back.
The controlled laser energy is transferred through flat applicators that are secured by frames that are belted around the patient. The laser elevates the adipose tissue temperature ejecting and eroding the fat cell all without damaging the skin’s surface.
A cooling element makes sure the process is comfortable, many describe it as a very warm heating pad. Over time, the body will naturally eliminate the disrupted cells. The process takes just 25 minutes, and can remove up to 24 percent of the fat in the target zone. No anesthetic is needed. You don’t feel sore, and can go back to your normal activities immediately. Results can be seen in 6-12 weeks.
Now’s the time to think about a fat reduction procedure to sculpt those body parts that may be making you insecure. Also, in order to be totally beach-ready, you may want to consider starting a laser hair removal treatment that will complete your polished summer look. The sunny season will be here before you know it, so be ready!
