What Is Lipolaser Plus?
Lipolaser Plus slimming system is specially designed for use during liposuction and for non-invasive body contouring procedure. The laser is applied externally and has proven through double blind clinical trials to emulsify adipose tissue.
The Lipolaser Plus slimming system is a low-level laser designed to get rid of body fat and shape and tone up the skin without surgery. Lipolaser results of a pilot study were presented to the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery in 2008, and the procedure received FDA clearance. The low-level laser helped patients lose an average of 5-6 inches from their waists, hips and thighs in a matter of a few weeks.
How It Works
The Lipolaser Plus slimming system works by emitting cold laser energy into the body tissues; this energy is absorbed by the body fat, and the fat is broken down and then channeled out of the body. The laser virtually stimulates the break down the fat cell and removes the body fat, without affecting the surrounding skin and tissues.
The Lipolaser Plus slimming system can effectively remove excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods. The Lipolaser Plus slimming system utilizes cold laser technology to emulsify fat and allow it to move to interstitial space. Although this technology was originally utilized to help assist tumescent liposuction procedures, it was found that the cold laser treatment alone helped patients to reduce inches from their waist, hip and thighs.
The cold laser technology was shown to exclusively release the cellular contents of fat cells while leaving the capillaries and other cells within the interstitial space intact. The release of the fat cell contents is the result of the disruption of the cell’s membrane. This membrane disruption, called a transitory pore, is the result of low-level laser stimulation.
Prior to laser exposure, fat cells have a regular, cluster shape, as seen in Figure 1. Within minutes of low level laser exposure, fat cells begin to develop transitory pores as indicated by arrows in Figures 3-6. This pore allows the evacuation of the cell’s contents into interstitial space (see Figure 4). Once the contents of the fat cell have been emptied (Figure. 7), it can be passed through the body during its metabolism and its normal course of detoxification.
The Lipolaser Plus slimming system provides patients with a safer alternative to surgical procedures, which can result in bruising, swelling, and damage to other tissues. There is no need to wear compression garments or bandages with Lipolaser Plus slimming system, since there is no pain, there is no need for anesthesia. Unlike other non-invasive approaches, Lipolaser Plus slimming system does not rely on heating tissue, which can cause discomfort. There is no downtime, so patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
