How Does Slim Lipo Work?

Published on January 15, 2019 by

Slim Lipo is a less-invasive laser-assisted surgical treatment that is designed to melt small amounts of unwanted fat permanently. This therapy uses laser technology to liquefy fat and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body.

Generally, this treatment is used to treat areas like the upper and lower abdomen, bra lines, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, arms, chest, face, double chin, and neck. It is an in-office procedure that is performed under local anesthesia.

Because the procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction, it results in excellent results. Small and unwanted bulges of fat can be permanently removed from your body.

The Benefits of Slim Lipo

The Slim Lipo treatment system was created by Palomar Medical Technologies in order to reduce the presence of unwanted side effects that are usually associated with traditional liposuction surgery.

Here are some of the benefits of Slim Lipo laser lipolysis:

• There will be removal of fat in specific areas.
• It tightens the skin.
• It smoothes out the skin’s surface.
• It minimizes cellulite.
• There are fewer skin irregularities and bumps afterwards.
• Smaller incisions are created during the treatment.
• There is less bruising and blood loss.

What Happens During the Slim Lipo Procedure?

First, local anesthesia will be administered to the targeted areas. This will numb them in order to prevent discomfort or pain during the procedure. After the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Felice will create small incisions. The laser and fat-suctioning device will be inserted into these incisions.

The device will emit 924 nm and 975 nm wavelengths to liquefy fatty tissue. This also gently heats the skin to tighten it. Dr. Felice will gently manipulate the fat-suctioning device to remove excess fat and contour the area that is being treated.

The whole treatment takes one to two hours, depending on the number of areas being treated and the size of the treatment areas.

The Benefits of Undergoing a Slim Lipo Treatment

Slim Lipo offers a number of benefits:

• There is a very short recovery period of only one or two days.
• It is designed with advanced laser technology that provides skin tightening as well as fat removal.
• It makes use of an exclusive fat-targeting laser wavelength that is very effective when it comes to melting fat.
• It can be performed on numerous areas of the body that can benefit from fat removal and skin tightening.

After the Slim Lipo Treatment

After Slim Lipo, patients can go home immediately after the surgery to rest. Most patients are ready to return to their regular routines within a day or two of treatment. Dr. Felice will most likely advise you to avoid exercising for at least a week or two after surgery.

The initial results of a Slim Lipo treatment are visible within a week, and your body will continue to improve over three to six months. You will notice a smoother and slimmer appearance than before.
