Laser Lipolysis is a minimally invasive way of removing small localised fat deposits. It is a newer laser assisted liposculpture procedure first used around 2004 for the removal of ‘saddlebags’, ‘love handles’, and ‘double chins’ etc. It can effectively reduce areas of fat resistant to diet or exercise whilst reducing the risks associated with traditional procedures such as liposuction.
After puberty, fat cells (adipocytes) remain constant in number and change their size and volume according to the lipid (fat) content the body decides to store. Sometimes this fat assumes abnormal proportions in well-defined areas, such as under the chin, upper arms, thighs, hips and waist – even when your body weight is normal for your height. Attempts to reduce these localised fat deposits by diet or exercise alone are often unsuccessful.
The actual procedure is generally well tolerated, due to the local anaesthesia. You may feel a tugging sensation during treatment but should not feel pain.
People may experience minor swelling, bruising or tenderness for a few days or weeks. This tends to be worse if suction is used during the procedure.
- liposuction is not for obese people.
- it works by breaking up fat deposits.
- lasers help breakup the fat.
- it may take a few month to see our new look.
- fat cells may be future disease fighting tools.
Osyris Pharaon Lipo® Laser
The Osyris Pharaon Lipo® Laser device utilises the most powerful Diode Laser for laser-assisted liposculpture or laser lipolysis treatment to remove stubborn areas of fat.
The Smart Lipo device from the Italian company Deka uses a 1064 nm Nd:YAG pulsed laser system to break down fat by laser-assisted liposculpture or laser lipolysis (Laserlipolisi) treatment.
