How does LipoLite work?
LipoLite features a tiny tube, called a “cannula,” which is inserted through a very small incision into your skin. A precise, powerful laser beam is directed via an optical fiber through a cannula, and liquefies deposits of fat cells within the treatment area.
Liquefied fat removal: the fat is removed from your body using the same tiny incision. The LipoLite procedure also leads to skin tightening and less bruising and bleeding in the treated area.
What areas can be treated with LipoLite?
LipoLite can treat smaller areas not possible with traditional liposuction. Ideal treatment regions include smaller areas on the face, neck, arms, bra line, back, belly, thighs, and buttocks. The male breast can also be treated.
When can I expect to see results?
While results may sometimes be seen almost immediately, the most visible results will be reached six to eight weeks after treatment.
Will I need anesthesia?
LipoLite is minimally-invasive, and considerably less traumatic to the body than traditional liposuction, so only local anesthesia (around the area treated) is required for treatments.
Does it hurt?
Local anesthesia helps make the LipoLite procedure comfortable. After treatment, and when the anesthesia begins to wear off, patients may experience minimal bruising, plus minor aches and pains that naturally dissipate over time. LipoLite patients typically return to work one to two days after treatment.
Am I a good candidate for the LipoLite procedure?
If you are in good health, but have stubborn areas of fat that you can’t seem to get rid of through diet and exercise, and have reasonable expectations of treatment results—you’re a candidate for LipoLite.
How many treatments will I need?
For most patients only one treatment is required. The session may last from 30 minutes to one hour for each area treated.
How much does treatment cost?
Costs vary depending on treatment areas and the total number of required treatment sessions. LipoLite treatments are typically less expensive than traditional liposuction.
