Lipo Laser Treatment
While fat is a natural part of the body, we all have that little bit of fat that we just can’t seem to get rid of. While surgical liposuction is a proven method to remove fat, it may produce scars and involve a lengthy recovery. Thankfully, there is a non-surgical treatment that may be able to help you.
We at One Agora Integrative Health are dedicated to helping you obtain the body that you desire through laser liposuction, also known as lipolaser. To learn more about the procedure or to schedule your appointment, call (952) 681-2157 or contact us online.
Non-Surgical Laser Liposuction
The basis of laser liposuction is the use of laser light to achieve lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat. Research has shown that red (635nm) and near-infrared (880nm) light therapy may be effective in melting down fat cells and reducing the overall body circumference and size of treated areas.
Laser lipo may be used on the following areas of the body:
- Upper back
- Mid back
- Love handles
The goal of the lipolaser procedure is to shrink fat stores by mimicking the natural process that the body undergoes when it needs energy from fat cells. The lipolaser stimulates fat cells to break down the triglycerides stored inside them and release the results of that breakdown (water, fatty acids, and glycerol). The fat cells then shrink, reducing the body circumference. After the fat cells are liquefied, the material is removed from the body by the natural lymphatic drainage system.
Laser Lipo Procedure
We at One Agora Integrative Health utilize the LipoMelt, a device produced by the company Ultimate Light. LipoMelt uses a series of laser pads to deliver Ultimate Light’s Near-Infrared Light Therapy (880nm), in hopes of safely stimulating collagen and elastin production in the body. This is thought to contour the body while also rejuvenating the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Compared to traditional liposuction, non-surgical laser lipo does not use injections or incisions.
Other benefits may include:
- Rapid results
- An enhanced ability of the body to heal itself
- Painless treatment that may also reduce pain
- Creates a more youthful appearance
In the beginning of the treatment, you will likely undergo lipolaser treatments twice a week. Most lipolaser treatments last 20 minutes, and the therapy may last 6-10 weeks.
To receive the best results from the lipo laser treatment, it is recommended that:
- You remove creams, oil or make-up from areas to be treated
- Do not eat 1 hour before and 1 hour after each treatment
- Reduce your overall caloric intake while limiting starchy carbohydrates and simple sugars
- Drink about 8 glasses of water before and after your treatment
- Cease or reduce alcohol consumption
It is important to keep your scheduled appointments as often as possible, as consistency is important in this treatment.
Laser Lipo Results
After each treatment session, it is recommended that you exercise for at least 10-20 minutes to stimulate lymphatic and blood circulation and help remove the fat. Since lymph and detox support is thought to dramatically improve results, you may want to discuss liver support medications with your doctor.
It may typically take 10-12 sessions for significant and long-lasting results. Once you have achieved your desired treatment goals, it is important that you keep to your monthly program.
