Find a professional skin clinic to perform Laser Lipolysis treatment in Johannesburg. But what is it and how does it work – can it benefit patients long-term, is it painful and what are the benefits? These are only some of the many questions often asked regarding the procedure.

Laser Lipolysis is a procedure that is minimally invasive. During the process heat from fibre-optic lasers uses heat through a variety of wavelengths to melt body fat.

Laser Lipolysis differs from liposuction which is a procedure that removes fat from the body through vacuum suction.

Laser Lipo (Laser Lipolysis)

This is a non-invasive procedure for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat that seem almost impossible to remove.

Some of the areas that are treated through Laser Lipolysis in Johannesburg include saddlebags, double chins or those unfortunate, persistent “love handles”.

These stubborn areas that need to be treated are usually quite resilient to any forms of diet and exercise.

Furthermore, there are usually far fewer side effects, unlike those that are experienced when undergoing liposuction or other more invasive treatments.

With Laser Lipo a laser is used to literally “melt” away any unwanted fat on both the face and the body, which is then metabolised by the body.

Alternatively the melted fat is aspirated which is a form of suction that enables the aesthetician to rid the body of larger amounts of fat.

What you can expect when undergoing Laser Lipo:

Underplaying any procedure seems to be what we do – but this is not a “lunchtime procedure” entirely – instead look at it as being a minor surgical procedure as there will be a tiny incision.

Additionally, the incision will be numbed through the use of a local anaesthetic.

The advantage is that patients are totally alert and awake right throughout the entire process which means less risk, as a general anaesthetic does not need to be administered.

Bear in mind this is not a get-quick process that will make you skinny and is not a solution for anyone that is obese.

The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages, though, as your Laser Lipo Treatment in Johannesburg will give you a more sculpted body shape in a short space of time, sans all that unsightly bruising and swelling that tends to go hand-in-glove with other more invasive cosmetic procedures.
