Lipotherme is a safe, effective procedure performed by your doctor that uses a laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones. In addition to removing unwanted fat, Lipotherme’s thermal effect causes the skin to tighten, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping goals.
The clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short) which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. Although effective, traditional liposuction is considered a highly-invasive procedure. By contrast, Lipotherme laser lipolysis is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure; however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising.
Depending on your goals and physical condition, Lipotherme can be an alternative to traditional liposuction, or your doctor may recommend a combination therapy of Lipotherme with traditional liposuction.
Your doctor will work with you to set realistic expectations but Lipotherme patients see immediate results due to the reduction in fat and the instantaneous skin contraction. Results will continue to improve over the next 2 days to 4 months depending on your unique body chemistry. All patients report a drecrease in the targeted body zone. Lipo means fat, and therme means heat; so Lipotherme is literally the controlled application of very low doses of heat to liquefy fat. Once the targeted fat cells have been liquefied, they are gone forever.
