Laser lipo is a non-invasive alternative to conventional liposuction to tighten skin, and reduce fat.
During this procedure, a laser penetrates the skin without causing damage to the epidermis, to heat up the subcutaneous fat cells. This damages the fat cells, which are cleared away naturally by the lymphatic system over time. The device we use cools the skin during treatment to reduce any discomfort that may be felt, and up to four applicators can be used in separate areas during one session, held against the skin with straps.

A variety of areas can be treated with laser lipo, including the tummy, love handles, inner and outer thighs, and hips. These are areas where stubborn fatty deposits are likely, and laser lipo is perfect for banishing excess resistant fat. Results include a significant decrease in fat as well as an improvement in skin elasticity over time, and are long-lasting provided the patient continues with a healthy diet and exercise regime following treatment, but lifestyle changes and hormones can affect these.
This treatment should not be used as a form of weight loss, and rather should be used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle to target specific areas.
