Laser fat reduction is a non-invasive procedure that helps to permanently eliminate excess fat in targeted areas. Laser fat reduction involves the use of special medical lasers which are designed to shrink the fat cells, allowing the body’s lymphatic system to eliminate the excess fat.
The best candidates for laser fat reduction are healthy individuals with an active lifestyle who have excess fat they want to lose in common hard-to-tone areas such as the hips, thighs and abdomen.
The procedure is non-invasive, it uses no needles or scalpels. Instead, wavelengths of laser light are emitted on or over the areas to be treated. The light penetrates the skin without harming the skin’s surface to target the fatty tissue below. The procedure itself is fairly quick with sessions taking as little as 15 minutes and involve no pain or downtime.
The use of the laser causes increased collagen production at the treatment site. This creates a tightening effect to accompany the reduction in fat. As the body completes its healing process, the entire area is sculpted, with no loose skin left as a reminder of the fat that has been removed.
