If you are already within a few pounds of your ideal weight, but have a few troublesome areas of fat, laser body contouring can help you lose that bit of extra weight. Laser body contouring is designed to tone and sculpt the body because it melts fat, and also tightens the skin (learn more).
How laser body contouring works
The laser energy penetrates to the deep dermal layer of the skin, where it targets and breaks down the fat cells. The cells then shrink, and after this the contents are passed out during the body’s normal waste process.
Laser body contouring generally targets trouble spots such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms. It can also get rid of stubborn cellulite. Since it is a non-invasive procedure there are none of the risks associated with surgery, and the downtime is also much less.
Who can benefit
Laser body contouring is intended for spot reduction, as it eliminates pockets of localized fat, helping to get rid of unwanted inches. It is designed for people who are already reasonably fit, and maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle. It is not recommended for those who are seriously obese, or have more than a few inches to shed.
What to expect
After the procedure, the skin will be noticeably smoother, but it may take up to eight weeks to see significant tightening of the skin.
