Is Laser Lipolysis Painful and Does it Work?

Is Laser Lipolysis Painful and Does it Work?

Liposuction (Lipoplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat from under your skin and is done by a plastic surgeon or a well-trained general practitioner. This is done under conscious sedation (i.e. your body is numb, but you are able to talk to the specialist). Lipoplasty can be done anywhere on your body where there’s an accumulation of fat.

This procedure is well known for those wanting a quick fix with minimal effort.  Lipoplasty is only effective if someone is genuinely committed to making healthy lifestyle changes and who doesn’t have a lot of fat to lose.  It is ideal for someone who is concerned about problem areas, particularly in the hips, waist, and thighs.

Laser Lipolysis is an innovative piece of technology that combines two of the most effective therapies in the treatment of cellulite and body sculpting. The brilliant results with its proven efficiency are the outcome of the simultaneous use of electro-lipolysis and locally applied chromo-therapy.

What exactly is Laser Lipolysis?

Laser Lipolysis is a non-invasive treatment targeting fat cells while preserving other tissues in the body. It works by aiming lasers specifically designed to puncture holes in fat cells within your body. The great news is, it’s completely painless.
Fat cells are not removed from your body – which believe it or not is a good thing, since removing fat cells can have unintended consequences like the fat reappearing in other places) – so with Laser Lipo, the fat cells’ sizes are merely reduced. The fat is then released into your interstitial fluid and flushed out by your lymphatic system. Because we store toxins in our fat, this also has a cleansing effect on the body.

Who would benefit from Laser Lipolysis?

As mentioned earlier, this treatment would be ideal for someone who is seriously committed to making healthy lifestyle changes and who doesn’t have a lot of weight to lose.

This treatment is not suitable for someone who is obese or needs to shift a large amount of weight. It is perfect for someone who is looking to fix “problem” areas that are the result of losing a large amount of weight very quickly or post plastic-surgery.

You will need to be able to commit to multiple sessions of Laser Lipolysis each week for several weeks.

Does the treatment hurt?

Laser Lipolysis sessions last between 20 and 40 minutes and because this treatment uses a “cold” laser, you will not feel a thing. There is no pain, swelling, tenderness, or redness, so no downtime is required. Unlike more invasive fat-removal treatments, you can immediately go back to work, continue your exercise program or go about regular tasks throughout your day.

Because the laser is causing your fat cells to release their contents into your bloodstream, you may feel tired, dizzy, or little ill afterwards, particularly if you’re dehydrated. Drinking a lot of water is key to flushing the fat and toxins out of your system.

Is Laser Lipolysis all I need to lose fat?

It is important to note here that Laser Lipolysis is a complementary treatment – it will not miraculously cure your fat issues without a little-concerted effort on your part.  This treatment is designed to make your healthy lifestyle more effective, especially if your body has plateaued, which is completely normal. You still have to put in the hard work; Laser Lipo simply enhances the results.  You will need to eat as clean as possible, train regularly in the gym, wear compression underwear where possible and drink plenty of water.

Is Laser Lipo safe?

Laser Lipo is a safe and effective treatment for targeting small areas of body fat. Because the procedure is done as an outpatient, the recovery is very quick. However, like with all procedures regardless of how non-invasive they are, do carry risks. Both traditional Liposuction (lipoplasty) and Laser Lipolysis are considered to be a very safe procedure in qualified and experienced hands, but make sure you do your homework here and find the best treatment facilities available to you.

Arm yourself with facts.  Speak to your doctor and seek advice where possible to ensure you are the best candidate for lipoplasty, laser lipolysis or both.


Although Laser Lipo patients are not generally looking to shed huge amounts of fat, surgery is really no substitute for a healthy lifestyle, a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.

Cosmetic surgery can only improve what you have by so much.  Like anything in this world, it takes arduous work and dedication on your part too.
