Even though many liposuction procedures are carried out every single year, many people in Chicago would prefer a less involved approach to fat removal. Laser liposuction is an exciting procedure that allows our team to safely melt away stubborn body fat with a laser. This technology also stimulates the production of collagen to speed up your recovery and tighten the nearby skin.
The Pros and Cons of Traditional Liposuction
Liposuction has remained one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world for the last three decades. Many patients are satisfied with this procedure, but this style of surgery has a few drawbacks as well. The act of physically extracting large chunks of fat can do some damage to the nearby soft tissue. Most of those who have this procedure carried out can head back to work within just a few weeks, but the recovery can be uncomfortable. Laser lipo can produce the same amazing results without as many side effects.
A Look at Laser Lipo Technology
Lasers have been a popular tool within the cosmetic industry for many decades. Doctors can set lasers to different frequencies to tighten skin, erase blemishes, break apart cellulite and emulsify fatty tissue.
During a laser liposuction procedure, a laser targets the fat cells in the treated areas and prompts them to release their contents, which will then be used as energy. As a result, the treated areas will become thinner, and the surrounding skin will become tighter.
The Benefits of Laser-Assisted Liposuction
Instead of staying in bed for weeks at a time, most laser liposuction patients can start walking around within days. Depending on the situation, you may need multiple treatments to receive your ideal results, but the fat loss should remain permanent as long as your weight stays stable.
Another reason why recovering from laser liposuction is so much more comfortable is because the patient’s skin will immediately begin producing additional collagen. This is the natural protein that keeps your skin tight, toned and healthy.
