Laser lipolysis, also known as laser liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fiber optic lasers as a heat source to melt unwanted body fat. This shouldn’t be confused with traditional liposuction, which removes large pockets of fat via suction. Laser liposuction is usually used to treat small areas of stubborn body fat that traditional diet and exercise don’t seem to affect.
There are many benefits to using laser liposuction treatment. One of the benefits of using lasers in fat removal is that it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin resulting in tighter, smoother skin after the procedure. Another benefit of lasers is the fact that it also coagulates the small blood vessels, which means less overall bruising and discomfort.
AgeFocus uses this alternative form of liposuction for some of their cosmetic procedures including body sculpting by using the Advanced SmartLipo Triplex™ treatment and for face-lifts using the Precision Tx treatment.
The Advanced SmartLipo Triplex™ is ideal for body sculpting because its three laser wavelengths are extremely effective in removing and reshaping any fat in unwanted areas such as the waist, hips, thighs, knees, arms, and male breasts (gynecomastia).
The PrecisionTx is a small laser that is perfect for direct and precise heating of tissue, which is why it’s the ideal tool to use for face and neck lifts. The laser specifically causes tissue to tighten and helps stimulate collagen growth 3-6 months after the procedure.
