If you want to lose weight, you can choose between Laser Lipolysis and Ultrasound Cavitation, two procedures that utilize ultrasonic energy to disintegrate fat cells. Laser lipolysis uses fiber optic diodes while Ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasound to disrupt fat cells. Both procedures are less invasive than surgical liposuction, but one has definite advantages over the other.
Laser lipolysis uses fiber optic diodes
During the past few years, the development of lasers with improved photothermal and photoacoustic properties has led to increased applications in medicine, including laser lipolysis. These newer lasers feature a high-powered diode with a wavelength close to 1064 nm. Moreover, these lasers have a small size and low weight. Laser lipolysis is the latest advancement in laser liposuction.
This procedure works by targeting fat cells by causing them to break down. This process is reversible and requires a single treatment to achieve the desired results. Treatment time for larger areas has been dramatically reduced by the use of newer technology. In general, the process takes about 60 to 90 minutes. This method is highly effective in reducing fat deposits. The procedure is also relatively painless. The procedure is not invasive and patients can resume their daily routines immediately after the treatment.
Although the procedure has several drawbacks, it can be used safely on small areas. The highest cumulative energy used in our study was 51,000 J, which is equivalent to a 72-cm3 volume reduction. Therefore, laser lipolysis should only be used when volume reduction is not more than 100 cm3.
Ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasound to disrupt fat cells
An ultrasonic cavitation procedure breaks up fat deposits by using ultrasound waves to create a mechanical breakdown of fat cells under the skin. This treatment does not harm surface tissues or surrounding organs. The process is painless, requires no anesthesia, and results in instant and noticeable results. Unlike other fat-reduction methods, this procedure will not leave you looking depressed and uncomfortable for weeks.
This procedure breaks up fat cells by dissolving their membranes. The resulting micropores release triglycerides from the cell, and the free fatty acids are then transported to the liver for metabolism. Because the liver does not distinguish between fat from cavitation and those from a meal, the fat is metabolized normally. In a few weeks, the process will result in a significant reduction in abdominal fat.
The procedure is very effective in reducing excess fat. However, it should not be done by people with bleeding disorders, heart disease, liver disease, or pregnancy. It can only be used on fat cells that are in the thigh or abdomen. There are some contraindications to this procedure. Patients must consult with their physician before receiving this treatment to be sure that this procedure is right for them.
It is less invasive than surgical liposuction
One of the main differences between surgical and non-surgical liposuction procedures is the type of laser used. Laser lipolysis uses light instead of a surgical blade to target fat deposits. Because the laser works by liquefying adipose tissue, it can quickly and effectively remove fat and skin, and lessen the pressure on the surgeon’s hands. Laser liposuction equipment is expensive, though – often exceeding $100,000.
The first step in deciding whether or not laser lipolysis is right for you is to evaluate your health. While liposuction is often the first step to achieving the body of your dreams, you should remember that it cannot replace healthy eating and exercise. The procedure permanently removes fat cells from the operated area, but doesn’t prevent other fat cells from picking up the slack. In addition, while liposuction can help you lose weight, it does not prevent other fat cells from picking up the slack. After undergoing liposuction, it is vital to maintain the weight loss after surgery, and that is a process that you should not undertake lightly.
As a non-surgical alternative to surgical liposuction, laser lipo also offers the same results as traditional procedures. Its low-risk procedure reduces bruising and bleeding, and leaves tissue structures intact. Laser lipo can be used for a variety of conditions, including a post-liposuction recovery. Unlike traditional liposuction, laser lipo leaves the nerves and blood vessels intact.
