How Laser Lipo Out-Powers Traditional Lipo


No matter how frequently you work out or how strictly you stick to your diet, stubborn fat pockets can be immune to your hard work and keep you from finally achieving your dream figure. In recent years, body contouring treatments like liposuction have become a go-to cosmetic procedure for many patients. However, there’s a new treatment that offers the same, if not better, results with half the downtime of traditional liposuction. Laser lipo is quickly emerging as one of the top-requested body sculpting procedures for men and women, leaving results that out-power traditional liposuction.

What Is Laser Lipo?

Laser liposuction, also called laser lipolysis, brings innovative technology to traditional plastic surgery techniques. Where traditional liposuction uses tumescent anesthesia to begin breaking apart fat tissue, laser lipo enlists the help of low-wave laser energy to liquefy targeted fat cells. Plastic surgeons use small tubes called cannulas to remove the destroyed fat cells.

Why We Love Laser Lipolysis

At Etre Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center, our specialists are careful to recommend only treatments that work and help our patients achieve their goals. We’ve found that laser lipo not only meets our high standards for cosmetic treatment – it exceeds them. Here are a few of the reasons we’ve found laser lipo to be the superior body contouring choice.

Efficient Fat Elimination

Most reasons for pursuing body contouring come down to one key point – removing unwanted fat and improving the overall figure. Thanks to its highly targeted approach, laser lipo is an excellent option for destroying stubborn fat pockets that can appear across the body. At Etre, our specialists have used laser lipolysis to remove localized fat from the neck, arms, back, thighs, abdomen, hips, and more.

Triggers Collagen Production

One of the common complaints tied to traditional liposuction is that while the treatment removes unwanted fat, it doesn’t address the sagging skin that may remain. For some, achieving the slim, toned figure they’re looking for can require secondary skin removal treatments. 

In contrast, the laser light used in laser lipolysis helps stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a critical protein that helps skin bounce back after it’s been stretched out, and it plays a vital role in the rejuvenation process. By increasing collagen development in areas of skin laxity, laser liposuction helps improve skin texture and tightness. Most patients see noticeable improvements within three to six months following treatment.

Faster Recovery

Looking for another reason to get laser lipo? What about shorter recovery time? For many, the week-long recovery of traditional liposuction means spending valuable paid time off to sit at home recovering and dealing with painful bruising. While laser lipolysis is not completely downtime-free, the treatment requires much less recovery time – as little as two days for some patients. As the laser energy used during this procedure exclusively targets fat cells, it reduces the damage done to other tissue, thus resulting in a shorter, more comfortable recovery.
