Zap Your Fat Away With Lasers
Even though it sounds like a science fiction plot lasers are now being used to help people reduce their weight to great success. there are several different ways lasers are being employed in fat loss and one is likely to be a good choice for your weight loss needs.
The methods range from surgery all the way to non surgical methods. Lasers are opening many new ways to effectively lose weight. Among the many advantages in using lasers in a weight loss program is a much faster recovery time as well as lower risks in the surgical methods. Another advantage is in many procedures the laser will actually cause the skin to produce new collagen and increase elasticity.
Liposuction has been used successfully for many years and the addition of laser light has greatly reduced the risk and recuperation time involved with this procedure. In contrast to the older method laser lipo uses the power of the laser to melt the fat and allow it to be removed much more easily by a smaller needle inserted under the skin. This helps avoid the added trauma that the original liposuction inflicted to the skin.
Lasers also allow surgeons for the first time ever to dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite. New procedures allow surgeons to insert a laser and sever the Septae bands in the skin that are responsible for the dimpled look common to cellulite deposits. This is the first method to reduce the cellulite and increase the elasticity of the skin as well.
One of the oldest surgical procedures for fat reduction is a tummy tuck. The addition of a laser to this procedure has allowed surgeons many more options in fat removal and even sometimes removed the need for a full tummy tuck procedure and allowed a much simpler liposuction procedure to provide the same results. The addition of a laser in a tummy tuck can greatly improve the results and reduce the recuperation time as well.
An older external laser method that has been used for over 25 years works much like acupuncture in that the laser is pointed at specific points on the body to achieve the results desired. This method is effective in helping your diet and exercise efforts achieve much greater results. This can also serve as an appetite suppressant and even a mood elevator.
A more recent use of the cold laser in weight loss is another external method that requires no surgery or recuperation time at all. This method uses several lasers that are targeted at certain areas usually the waist and hips and thighs. The lasers stimulate the fat cells to release their fat into the surrounding area. This fat is then flushed by your system naturally.
All laser assisted fat reduction systems are not considered a permanent fat solution. While they have outstanding results without an accompanying healthy diet and reasonable exercise routine most results will not last. as the fat will simply re appear after time.
Not all of these methods are a good choice for everyone and consulting with a qualified surgeon is the best way to know which procedure will work best for you. With all the options available today there is a very good chance one will be able to help you lose the extra weight that will just not respond to your diet and exercise plans.
