Laser Lipolysis

Optimal Body Shaping Results with Minimal Downtime

Laser lipolysis a minimally invasive form of aesthetic surgery designed to remove excess body fat. It involves the use of a laser to rapidly dissolve excess fat in target areas such as the thighs, abdomen, arms, neck and parts of the face, using a minor “keyhole” surgical procedure.

Gold Standard Aesthetic Technology

Fotona's QCW Nd:YAG laser is considered the gold standard in aesthetic surgery, and its application in laser lipolysis has been tested and proven to be safe and effective. Its specific advantages compared to other laser sources include:

  • its relatively low absorption in water
  • the largest directly hea­ted volume of subcutaneous tissue
  • the smallest undesirable thermal effect on neighbo­ring dermal tissue, and
  • a significantly higher ability to coagulate blood vessels

Safe, Effective, and Minimally Invasive

Fotona's laser lipolysis procedure does not require the use of a general anesthetic. A very fine laser fiber is inserted into the treatment area, where the laser light causes swelling and rupture of adipocytes. When the fat is melted, it can either be absorbed by the body or removed by the physician.

Simultaneously, the laser also tightens the surrounding skin to prevent it from sagging after the removal of unwanted fat. In fact, the same laser can be used for skin tightening, tone and textural improvements elsewhere on the body.

Laser lipolysis can be performed with the following Fotona laser systems:

  • Fotona's XP Line of laser systems offers a variety of essential tools for expanded treatment options and enhanced speed and precision of surgical and aesthetic treatments, without compromising efficacy. Fotona’s multi-application XP Dynamis includes a high performance QCW Nd:YAG surgical laser as well as a built-in, non-ablative, long-pulse Nd:YAG aesthetic laser, which together enable an extremely wide treatment range.
