Body Contouring - “Laser Lipo”
Weight loss is about taking control of your health. Why not do the same with your stubborn trouble areas using a natural alternative to liposuction?
You’re committed to your diet plans, you’ve spent months training in the gym, you’re doing everything you should be doing and finally seeing the numbers drop on the scale! But you’re still not seeing the results you envisioned in the mirror. Body contouring, commonly called laser liposuction, is a non-invasive treatment that allows you to target and reduce fat in those specific trouble areas with a safe, painless, and effective alternative to traditional liposuction.
How Does Laser Lipo Work?
This non-surgical procedure puts you in control of your body’s ability to lose fat exactly where you want. The lipo laser is used to stimulate your subcutaneous fat cells and discharge their contents into the body to be disposed of naturally – in essence, shrinking the fat cells. The lipo laser does not remove or destroy your fat cells like liposuction plastic surgery does, it merely activates them in the same way your body would if you were exercising or burning excess calories.
The lipo laser can target the exact area of fat cells you choose, even the toughest spots, including:
- Love handles
- Belly fat
- Upper, Mid-, & Lower Back
Benefits Of Lipo Laser Treatments
Almost every day, we see a rise in trendy ways to lose belly fat fast with “quick fix” pills, fat burning foods, and gadgets like the tummy tuck belt. While these options all promise the same slimming results, there are really only two ways to shape the most stubborn of trouble zones on your body: to remove the fat cells or to shrink them. “Remove” is usually performed through liposuction, and “reduce” is a newer and equally effective technique – the lipo laser. Many people searching for liposuction in Pittsburgh want to know how much liposuction costs, and you can discuss the numbers with your personal weight loss counselor, but it is also important to consider the cost of having an invasive procedure in your body. The following are the benefits of lipo laser treatment when compared to other fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction.
No Recovery Time
Tummy tucks are liposuction plastic surgery procedures that involve puncturing the skin and inserting long needles attached to hoses that aggressively vacuum excess fat from the body. Because of this invasive liposuction process, recovery time is required before you return to daily activities. After your session at our laser liposuction clinics, you will require no recovery time at all for the same slimming accuracy.
No Scars Or Tissue Damage
Unlike some liposuction procedures, lipo laser does not leave any scars. Because the low-level laser stimulates the cell rather than destroying it, there is no damage to the cell or the surrounding areas including blood vessels, peripheral nerves, and skin. It merely tricks your fat cells into the same process that happens naturally when you exercise, but you’re lying on a relaxing treatment table!
What To Expect During Laser Lipo Treatments
Your lipo laser technician will confirm the areas you’ve chosen to target and the amount of time required for each area. Your weight and measurements will be recorded in your personal file. Then, you can get comfortable on the treatment table while the technician prepares the lipo laser machine for your session. Once it has begun, the lipo laser will get to work shrinking your fat cells while you relax. Sessions can last anywhere from 10-40 minutes. Lipo laser session lengths depend on your chosen trouble zone and the treatment plan established with your weight loss counselor.
How Quickly Will I See Fat Loss From Laser Lipo Treatments?
Often, body contouring treatments take three or more sessions to see visible results; however, some clients have noticed a difference in tightening of skin and a smoothing reduction in cellulite after the first or second treatment. However, a standard treatment protocol consists of two sessions, lasting less than one hour, weekly for a duration of four weeks.
After each session, your weight and measurements will be taken again, and the technician will share your progress and provide any suggestions for better results. However, we think the visual results speak louder than any numbers on the scale or measuring tape.*Results may vary. Expect to lose 1-2 lbs. a week.
