Non-surgical laser fat removal is a procedure that implements specialized laser equipment to systematically destroy fat deposits. The fat deposits are strategically “injured” by the laser therapy device so they can be naturally removed from the body. There are a variety of different treatment options for laser fat removal, each of which offering a consistent fat reduction and improved body contour.
Candidates for Laser Fat Removal
- Patients with fat deposits resistant to prolonged diet and exercise regimes
- Patients with undesired but treatable fat deposits on the abdomen, flanks, thighs or back
- Patients seeking a rejuvenated body contour without having to undergo a surgical procedure
About Laser Fat Removal
Laser fat removal has been proven effective in diminishing stubborn, unwanted body fat on numerous areas of the body. Treatment can be administered on an outpatient basis with no downtime and little or no associated discomfort. For many patients, the most important benefit of laser fat removal is that no incisions are required. Multiple treatments may be needed to provide the desired result. Temporary redness and numbness can occur at the treatment area, but our Centennial laser fat removal patients typically report no extended discomfort.
How Laser Fat Removal is Performed
Prior to treatment, we will mark the treatment areas on the body and apply a thin layer of gel to the skin. The gel helps the laser achieve adequate penetration through the layers of the skin. The handheld device is then moved over the treatment area, targeting just the fat deposits and leaving the surrounding skin and tissue uninjured. The device may be passed over the treatment area multiple times as deemed necessary by the operator.
Treatment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours depending on the patient’s needs. The body reacts to the treatment by gradually absorbing the damaged fat cells. Follow up treatments may be required to achieve the desired result. The number of treatments required will be discussed during the consultation phase based on patient needs.
