Fat Melting Lasers

Written by Dr. Rokhsar

Dr. Rokhsar has several lasers to choose from for a patient’s specific fat reduction goals. He is the first physician to use the Liposonix procedure in the United States and is a leading authority on laser surgery and non-invasive fat reduction.

Liposonix used high-intensity ultrasound therapy to target and destroy fat. This non-invasive procedure can leave stubborn fat areas found in the waist, abdomen, love handles, thighs and back progressively thinner and smoother.

UltraShape uses ultrasound waves specifically focused to target and destroy fat cells through the skin. The fat is then naturally processed through the body similar to the treatment of kidney stones. This non-invasive procedure can be used for fat found on the abdomen, love handles, hips or thighs and requires no downtime.

VelaShape is an effective technique used to contour and shape the body into a slimmer form by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas in four sessions. The laser is composed of a bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) and infrared light energy, and vacuum and mechanical massage. This combination uses the vacuum to smooth out the skin and efficiently deliver heat energy. The fat cells are reduced in size, leaving a thinner and smoother appearance.

Zeltiq uses a cooling method called cryolipolysis to target, freeze and break down fat cells in the body. This laser is based on the research conducted by Harvard scientists, that fat is more susceptible to cold temperatures than other cells in the body. When affected, the fat separates and dies just below the skin and then suspends inside the body and naturally digested. Within weeks full results are achieved without the need for surgery. After the cells are crystallized through a gentle cooling process, the fat progressively decreases with gradual results appearing with three weeks to final results within four months.

Zerona is a non-invasive option for those wishing to reduce fat in places such as the thighs, hips, waist, buttocks, abdomen, neck, arms, and back. The laser liquefies fat by targeting cells and breaking them down just below the skin’s surface. The body then naturally disposes of them as dead cells and results are progressively seen after the non-invasive procedure. Desired results are usually seen after six to ten sessions that are ideally spaced every other day or no more than 72 hours in between them in order to prevent fat reuptake.
