Liposuction is an invasive surgical treatment used to remove pockets of fat in various areas of the body. While this procedure is definitely effective at eliminating unwanted body fat, there are other non-invasive ways to get great results, including through the use of laser treatments.
The Science Behind Laser Body Contouring
Instead of eliminating fat cells through traditional liposuction surgery – which is expensive, invasive, painful, and potentially risky – laser treatments can help effectively contour the body to remove unwanted fat and smooth out certain sections of the body.
Laser helps to shrink the fat cells in the body, using cold laser pulses that penetrate only a few millimeters of the skin. Only the subcutaneous fat cells are targeted, which means your organs are never susceptible to damage.
The laser perforates the fat cells temporarily to drain them through the lymphatic system. The triglycerides are broken down and metabolized by the body, and excreted partly through the urinary tract. Approximately 500 calories worth of fat are released into the body from the areas treated during the treatment. The next step is to flush these calories out of the system to avoid having them settle somewhere on the body and help improve body shape.
It’s recommended to drink lots of water after the treatment, and refrain from eating too many fatty foods as well. It also doesn’t hurt to do some light exercise for about 30 minutes following the procedure to help stimulate further drainage.
