Laser Lipo and Skin Tightening

If you’ve done the hard work of diet and exercise, you know it’s not a silver bullet. But it gets the ball rolling on reshaping your body and it makes you feel great, right? Right! There are always some areas which are resistant to your best efforts. In fact, you can blame genetics for those areas where the fat won’t move. Laser liposuction is the most advanced way of removing unwanted fat from those areas where fat accumulates. Sculpture Clinic in Melbourne offers laser lipo. Your days are numbered, problem areas!

What is Laser Liposuction/How Does Laser Lipo Work?

The procedure starts with local anaesthetic. Then a specially designed cannula that holds a laser fibre inside, is inserted into the fat treatment area. Your surgeon activates the laser, which heats up and the fat surrounding the fibre begins to melt. The cannula then suctions the fat out of the body. The surgeon can use gentle strokes on the cannula because the fat is now in a melted, malleable state. These gentle violin strokes mean there will be less bruising than with conventional liposuction. Post-operative discomfort will be lower and recovery faster.

Skin Tightening with Laser Liposuction

A perk to using laser liposuction to remove fat is that it may tone the skin in the areas treated too. Fat removal combined with the possible skin tightening effects of laser liposuction together produces great results. The laser fibre heats to 40° C which not only melts fat but also may tighten the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. Heat stimulates collagen production and causes existing collagen to contract. The skin can be more elastic and tighter-looking.

With less bruising and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction, laser liposuction is an advanced solution for people with fat that is resistant to exercise and diet.
