5 Things to Know Before Getting Laser Lipo in Charlotte, NC

If you are in the Charlotte area looking for an easy and effective way to reduce fat, then laser lipo is a great option. There are many fad diets, and treatments that promise results when it comes to fat reduction, but laser lipo in Charlotte is as effective as it promises. If you want to know more about the treatment, then look no further. There are some things you might want to know about getting laser lipo and we have gone over some of them here.


How it Works


Laser lipo is a clever treatment. Simply put it gets the body to use its own natural process to remove fat from the treated area using laser energy. Laser lipo uses low level laser beams that are released through treatment pads to break down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. These free fatty acids and glycerol are released into the body through the cell membranes and transported around the body to various tissues where it waits to be burnt off.


Typically, when you exercise the body needs extra energy to continue to function, the body finds this energy by releasing any stored fat content from anywhere in the body. Laser liposuction uses the low-level beams to preempt this release of fat cells from a targeted area of the body, so when you exercise the fat has already been released. In a sense, laser lipo melts fat away so your body can easily process it out with some exercise.


The technology we use to perform laser lipo at LightRx is the Venus Bliss Non-Invasive Laser Lipolysis system. It is clinically validated for fat reduction and provides a more contoured look, with a focus on client comfort. It employs 1064 nm diode laser applicators to induce lipolysis. This leads to a reduction of excess fat in the target area. Venus Bliss focuses on client care and comfort through its technology. It features 4 diode laser applicators that can be activated individually and placed in various configurations. This flexibility allows it to form fit to nearly any client.


These applicators have uniform energy distribution across sapphire crystals which evenly heat the target tissue. This technique eliminates hot spots in small areas that could cause discomfort or pain during treatment. Each applicator is also equipped with tissue contact sensors that ensure a safe and therapeutic effect. The lasers also measure temperature to regulate heat and ensure client comfort.


This wonderful piece of technology focuses on comfort without sacrificing effectiveness. Moreover, it’s available right in Charlotte.


It’s Safe


Laser lipo is a perfectly safe treatment. In fact, there is no comparison to the safety of the treatment when considering the risks of traditional liposuction. The biggest drawback when considering liposuction vs. laser lipos is that traditional liposuction is a surgical treatment, which comes with a lot of risks.


Compared to traditional liposuction laser lipo is better because it is significantly safer. Laser lipo is nonsurgical and noninvasive. As mentioned earlier laser lipo is completely non-invasive. This means that there are no cuts or incisions to break the skin, and nothing is inserted beneath the skin. This means that all the risks associated with a surgical treatment are avoided. The only side effects that are associated with laser lipo are minor.


The most common of these side effects is numbness in the treatment area, slight scarring, discolored or loose skin. Those side effects are temporary and tend to disappear shortly after a treatment. In fact, 90% of LightRx clients do not feel any discomfort, and those that do feel pain describe it as a rubber band snapping against the skin.


It’s Effective


Safety does not mean there is a sacrificing of effectiveness. Laser Lipo is very effective. In fact, clients can lose up to twenty-five pounds of total body weight through the treatment. Not only does it work, but the results of laser liposuction are harder to reverse because the process destroys the fat cells in the body, rendering them unable to store fat any longer. Laser lipo is completely non-invasive and safer than traditional liposuction. This means that while results may not be as dramatic there will certainly be apparent. Laser lipo produces best results for clients that need help with stubborn areas that persist after proper diet and exercising or if the client cannot undergo surgery.


There are also other potential benefits to laser lipo. Our laser technology is also used to tighten skin and reduce cellulite. Cellulite reduction is straightforward. We use a combination of radio frequencies and electromagnetic waves to heat up the skin. This heat triggers the body’s natural healing process but does not burn or damage the skin. This natural healing process creates new skin fibers called collagen. These skin fibers are responsible for tightening the skin. As new collagen fibers are formed, they begin to tighten the skin. It takes about three months for them to fully develop, and your skin will tighten up over the course of the collagen’s development.


Skin tightening works similarly to the way that cellulite reduction works. The goal is to heat the skin to the precise level that activates the natural healing process and create new collagen. The new collagen tightens the skin. The difference lies in the way that we apply it. Because skin tightening is designed to tackle loose and wrinkled skin anywhere on the body there are multiple methods that we may use for treatment.


Since laser lipo treatment uses lasers to treat fat, it also tends to tighten skin along with reducing fat. Since a lot of people that lose fat quickly end up with loose skin this is an excellent feature, because as you lose fat you are also tightening your skin with the same treatment method.


How to Get the Best Results


To fully take advantage of the laser lipo treatment there are a few things that you need to do to get the most out of your laser lipo treatment. The first is to consider body contouring. Body contouring is the use of multiple treatments to achieve an overall new appearance. If you are trying to look better for the summer, or just feel better about who you see in the mirror, we can come up with a plan to fit your needs. The treatments that we use include cellulite removal, skin tightening, laser lipo, and laser hair removal. These treatments can be powerful in combination with each other and take years off the way that you look.


Second is to continue to diet and exercise. There will be a prescribed exercise routine to go along with your treatment sessions. Doing these along with some other form of exercise is paramount to see best results. Since the lasers only can melt fat, not vacuum it out you still need to remove the fat from your body following treatment. Exercise is the best way to do that. The glycerides are already in your muscles, so simply using those muscles is all it takes to get the fat out of your body.


Additionally, eating well and following a healthy diet will do wonders for your fat loss. If your body is trying to generate new fat in between sessions, you will not see the same results as someone who is not creating new fat. Laser lipo can have tremendous results, but only if you do your best to get those results.


What to Expect


Laser Lipo is designed to reduce fat in targeted areas and to help contour the body for a slimmer appearance. Typical clients before treatment have more rounded abdominal areas as well as larger love handles due to fat. After treatment clients can expect to see a reduction in the buildup of fat in these areas and as a result have a slimmer body frame and appearance. You can see some results of our previous clients for yourself in our laser lipo before & after gallery.


You can get some results about a week after the first treatment, although you will not get your full desired results until you have completed all your treatments. Not all clients see immediate results, although all clients do eventually see results throughout the treatment process. These treatments will be implemented over the course of 10 to 12 weeks depending on your situation.


The best part about laser lipo is that there is no downtime following the treatment. Because of the nature of the treatment there is no need to have any sort of recovery period. You can get laser lipo in Charlotte, leave our medspa and get right back to your daily routine.
