Lipotherme Laser Lipolysis
Lipotherme is a safe, effective, minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones. In addition to removing unwanted fat, Lipotherme’s thermal effect causes the skin to contract, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping goals.
- Faster – Reduced procedure time means less time in the doctor’s office
- Minimally Invasive – Least invasive of all lipolysis procedures
- Minimal Healing – Advanced technology means you’ll be back in action in less time
- Minimal Discomfort – Patented technology allows you to remain awake during the procedure
Throughout history, heat has been used to promote health and well being. Lipotherme is a revolutionary technique that harnesses the power of heat-generating lasers to selectively break-up unwanted body fat and reshape your body.
The clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short), which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. Although effective, traditional liposuction is considered a highly-invasive procedure. By contrast, Lipotherme laser-lipolysis is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure, however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising. Depending on your goals and physical condition, Lipotherme can be an alternative to traditional liposuction.
Lipotherme is the result of years of research into the ideal methods for targeting unwanted fat “zones” and eliminating them from the human body. Lipotherme was developed by a team of European researchers and thousands of satisfied patients have benefited from this procedure.
An Example from Our Practice:
SmoothShapes Laser for Cellulite Reduction
SmoothShapes is an FDA cleared laser for cellulite reduction. The procedure is non-invasive and requires 8 treatments. It is currently the best treatment on the market for cellulite.
Chelsea Medicine and Laser offers the SmoothShapes system for longer-lasting improvement in dimpled skin known as cellulite. More than 85% of women will develop cellulite at some point in their life and it can’t be controlled or improved through diet or exercise. Ultra slender supermodels, those devoted to a healthy lifestyle and diet, and even toned athletes can all have cellulite.
SmoothShapes, a new pain-free treatment, uses a combination of laser and mechanical manipulation to rejuvenate collagen and improve the appearance of cellulite. SmoothShapes is different than other systems because of its technology. Perfected after seven years of development, the SmoothShapes device uses a proprietary technology called Photomology, which ultimately results in longer-lasting cellulite improvement and the appearance of tighter skin. Thermal and non-destructive, Photomology’s unique mechanism of action combines dynamic laser and light energy with mechanical message and vacuum. The treatment uses dynamic laser and light energy to liquefy fat in adipose cells (fat cells) and improve skin texture. Collagen is regenerated, circulation is improved and metabolic processes are restored. The contoured rollers and vacuum massage assist in moving the liquefied fat out through the lymphatic system with a soothing massage that smooths the appearance of skin.
