Before and After Laser Lipo
The Laser Liposuction Process
Laser liposuction is performed from the comfort of a licensed medical professional’s office. Local anesthetic will be applied to the areas, which will be clearly marked, that are to be treated.. The physician will then use a laser to go over the areas that have been marked. This laser will cause the fat cells to break up and liquify. The laser also has an effect on the small blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They will coagulate and thus cause less bleeding and swelling following the procedure . Once the fat cells begin to liquify, they are safely suctioned away with the use of a microcannula. This entire process will also lead to some skin tightening which only enhances the final result.
