Have you been considering liposuction to remove areas of stubborn body fat but are hesitant to undergo an extensive procedure? While traditional liposuction is a common procedure to eliminate excess body fat, modern advances in this technique now result in less invasive methods and more sophisticated technology such as laser lipolysis and liposculpting. At Fine Arts Skin and Laser, we offer both of these safe and effective procedures to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Serving the Dover area in Ohio, Fine Arts Skin and Laser is led by Dr. David Hartman. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how laser lipolysis can help you improve your body contours and achieve maximum results with minimal downtime.
What is Laser Lipolysis?
Unlike other liposuction techniques, laser lipolysis offers multiple benefits to patients:
- It melts fat using advanced laser technology that is approved by the FDA
- The laser energy is converted to heat in the deeper layers of skin, which stimulates the production of collagen – an essential building block of the skin that can have a smoothing and tightening effect for an improved aesthetic inside and out.
- This minimally-invasive procedure carries less recovery and downtime than traditional liposuction
How Does Laser Lipolysis Work?
Through small points of entry in the skin that usually do not require sutures, a thin cannula with a high-tech laser fiber is slowly inserted into treated areas. As the laser is pulsed, fat is broken down into a substance that is easily absorbed and expelled by the body through natural processes, involving no vacuum extraction. After the fat is removed, the skin and remaining fat adjust and create slimmer, more defined contours.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Lipolysis?
Generally, most areas of the body that carry excess weight can be treated, including the:
- Love handles
During your consultation with Dr. Hartman and our medical team, your aesthetic goals and treatment options will be discussed, and if it is determined that you are a good candidate for this procedure, a customized treatment plan will be created with you.
Is There Any Recovery?
Mild swelling and bruising may be experienced after this procedure, but patients are typically able to enjoy their new body contours and return to normal activities more quickly than with other liposuction treatments. Dr. Hartman and our medical team will monitor your healing and progress and let you know what you can expect as well as all relevant safety information, how to prepare for your procedure, and when you should be able to safely return to work and normal activities.
