Laser Lipo: How it Works & Fat Loss Results

Laser lipo is a new fat loss technology that isn’t really liposuction at all. Instead, it’s an entirely non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime, has little-to-no side effects, and is completed quickly in an outpatient office setting. Best of all, it has astonishing results and many patients report significant fat loss following just one single treatment. Many patients have questions, such as what is laser lipo precisely, and how does it work?

With the ability to now reduce belly fat without going under the knife, taking extensive time off of work to recover, or draining your bank account, more individuals are turning to laser lipo to see results.

What Is Laser Lipo and How Does It Work?

Laser lipo is a safe and effective way to seek treatment for fat reduction without having surgery. When you undergo traditional liposuction, you will need to visit a surgery center, where a doctor will administer general anesthesia for the procedure. You will be unconscious while a surgeon operates on you. The procedure commonly includes a doctor injecting a saline and saltwater solution into the area you are treating, which makes it easier for them to remove the fat under your skin with a suction device. The solution may also include lidocaine and epinephrine, which reduces pain and helps stop excessive blood loss during the procedure.

With laser lipo, however, these methods are not necessary as the procedure is entirely non-invasive. At no point will a medical professional inject anything into your skin, cut under your skin, or remove anything from your body. In fact, with the Dominion Aesthetic eon™ body sculpting device at Body Details, the device will never touch your skin at all. You will not even require gel on your skin.

The device remains just above your stomach and is entirely automated, meaning that there is no risk of surgeon error. This is another significant advantage of choosing laser lipo. You will not have to worry about uneven fat removal, lumps or bumps under your skin, or missed spots.

How Does Laser Lipo Work?

The Dominion Aesthetic eon™ body contouring device performs laser lipo by targeting the entire stomach at one time, and the procedure takes approximately one hour. Some patients are able to schedule sessions lasting as few as twenty minutes, allowing them to get right back to their daily schedule without interruption.

Laser lipo enables your body to reduce fat on its own, without surgical intervention. Laser lipo gently heats fat cells until they die off in a process called apoptosis. Your body will then begin to eliminate fat cells through the lymphatic system following your appointment, with the greatest fat loss seen twelve weeks after treatment.

Since there are no surgical devices involved in the process, there is no risk of post-surgical infection or complication as there is with traditional liposuction.

Consultations for Non-Invasive Fat Loss

Body Details offers FREE consultations to all patients, whether you are an existing customer or are coming in for the very first time. Many individuals have questions, such as what is laser lipo, what results they can expect to see from the procedure, and questions regarding what to expect from treatment.

At your FREE consultation, you will meet with a laser specialist who will review all of this information. Additionally, you will receive an evaluation of the belly fat you are looking to treat. We will develop a personalized laser lipo plan based on your fat loss goals and provide you with pricing. We will also let you know how to prepare for your treatment session, with information including what beauty products to avoid prior to your appointment. This is to ensure that you get the most out of laser lipo with Dominion Aesthetic eon™ body contouring device.

Body Details True Laser® Specialists

Body Details has been in business for more than 15 years, serving residents of South Florida. Over that time, our medical professionals have performed more than one million laser skin procedures for tens of thousands of happy clients. We have set the standard for laser treatment in the region, with innovative techniques. We use only the most current and advanced technology, with the strongest class of lasers approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. This sets us apart from the countless other laser treatment centers in the area. In fact, many laser treatment centers do not use medical grade lasers at all. This enables us to provide our patients with better results in a shorter amount of time.

Additionally, at Body Details only Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) or Physician’s Assistants (PAs) administer laser treatment. Our APRNs/PAs are all masters degree holding medical professionals who undergo extensive training with both the experts at Body Details as well as with the laser manufacturers themselves. This ensures expert treatment, every time.

The Average Cost of Laser Lipo

Another advantage to choosing laser lipo over traditional surgical liposuction is the cost. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, patients pay an average of $3,548 for liposuction. This estimate does not include the additional costs of anesthesia, medical supplies, blood tests that are necessary prior to surgery, aftercare for the wound and post-surgical medication, follow up visits with your plastic surgeon, and the costs associated with operating rooms or hospital facilities. Additionally, a plastic surgeon may charge you a higher fee based on their level of experience and how many years they have been in business. Since liposuction is generally not covered by medical insurance, these costs can easily add up to astronomical amounts.

With laser lipo, you do not pay these extra fees. You pay for the treatment session you receive, and that’s it. You do not need to pay for any additional supplies or tests, and we do not charge you more based on the expertise of the APRNs/PAs performing the procedure. And since laser lipo is entirely non-invasive you will not have to face the costs associated with caring for surgical incisions or dressing wounds. At Body Details, we provide flexible payment plans to those who qualify so you can pay for your procedure over time instead of all upfront.

The Treatment Process

The laser lipo treatment process is simple and worry-free. After your FREE consultation with a laser specialist, you will schedule your appointment. At Body Details, we have extended evening hours and weekend appointments available so you may select the day and time that works best for you. You do not have to take time off work or worry about needing time to recover from this non-invasive procedure. This means that you can get laser lipo and no one will even know. With the ability to be in and out the door in an hour you can go about your day as usual, returning to work or going about your routine errands with no disruption.

During treatment, our APRNs will use the Dominion Aesthetic eon™ body contouring device to map the topography of your belly area, for customized treatment. This ensures that you will not receive the same laser lipo treatment as any other person–it is customized just for you and your fat loss needs. The device then targets the adipose tissue below the skin to help your body start eliminating fat cells. Additionally, you will undergo a 3D body scan with our QuantifiCare camera at the time of treatment, as well as at your 12-week follow-up appointment to demonstrate results.
