How does LipoTherme work?
A small cannulae approximately 2.0 in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is used with a back and forth motion delivering the laser’s energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. Only local anesthesia is used at the entry point for the cannulae and tumescent anesthesia is used to create lift between the fat and muscle layers. As an added benefit of LipoTherme, the heat produced during the treatment can create a skin tightening effect, thus helping create a more balanced skin texture.
What areas can be treated with LipoTherme?
LipoTherme is used to treat localized fat deposits in the following areas: Face (chin), Knees, Back, Abdomen, Arms, Thighs, Hips, Obliques (love-handles)
What are the benefits to laser-assisted lipolysis?
With the growing market for body sculpting, LipoTherme is the ideal tool for reducing localized fat deposits. Benefits range from overall circumference reduction, targeting troublesome areas (not affected by exercise and diet), as well as skin tightening. LipoTherme is a great balance between overall results and patient satisfaction.
How soon will I see results and how long will my results last?
Because healing and metabolism rates are different with everyone, results following a LipoTherme treatment usually requires 12 to 16 weeks to become fully apparent. Optimal results are between 3-6 months on average. Clients have seen dramatic improvements within 1 to 2 weeks after the treatment, but some areas such as the neck and jaw can show results faster.
Is this a “one-time” treatment?
Primarily LipoTherme treatments are considered a “one-time” treatment but results can vary depending on how well the patient follows post operative guidelines. After the “final” results are achieved if the patient and/or physician are not satisfied with the results a “touch-up” treatment can be performed.
Are there any contraindications that will eliminate my candidacy?
Upon arrival at the clinic a Patient History Questionnaire will be completed and reviewed by Dr. Acosta to ensure that you are a candidate, this is for your health and safety. Also, a list of contra-indicated medications will be given for you to review. These medications may interfere with the LipoTherme procedure and will be addressed by Dr. Acosta during your visit.
Is the laser FDA approved?
Absolutely! LipoTherme has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States.
