Laser Lipo Procedure
The laser lipo procedure begins with the doctor placing four paddles containing a total of 36 medical diode lasers directly on the skin over the targeted fat areas as you simply lay back and relax. The entire laser lipo procedure is completely painless. Depending on the area to be treated, and how much fat you want to lose, the medical lasers will be repositioned 2 or 3 times during the treatment session over your most troublesome fat pockets. Each laser lipo procedure lasts generally about 30 minutes.
The laser lipo procedure is illustrated below showing how fat leaves the adipose cells in targeted areas. The specific wavelength of laser light is bioactive and the laser energy is able to change the permeability of the adipose cell membrane, commonly known as the fat cell. As the permeability of the adipose cell membrane is changed, the adipose cell releases its contents of free fatty acids, glycerol, and water. This is a natural process similar to the process by which exercise creates fat loss by encouraging the fat to leave the adipose cells.
