What is Laser Lipolysis, how is it Applied?

Regional lubrication poses a problem for many women. If you say "I cannot lose weight despite sports and diet," Dermatology specialist Dr. Saliha Kırbaş explained the laser lipolysis method for you.

Laser Lipolysis

Laser lipolysis is a method used in the treatment of regional lubrication. In some areas during the weight loss process, it is seen that the fats are quite resistant. These areas may not melt despite sports and diet. In such cases, the aim is to use regional slimming methods to dissolve localized fat that is regional, distorts the body image and causes a disproportionate appearance, rather than losing weight. For this purpose, many methods have been developed today, using energy types such as mesotherapy and external heat energy, which reduce regional lubrication, and radiofrequency focused ultrasound. In these methods, energy is tried to be given to the target tissue from the skin surface. However, the energy level does not always reach a sufficient level in the target tissue, as it is tried to reach the subcutaneous tissue without heating the skin surface. For this purpose, methods that effectively deliver heat energy, including laser, to the fat layer are successful.

Shape Your Body Easily!

In laser lipolysis, on the other hand, heating of the target tissue becomes easier as the heat reaches the target tissue with the help of a cannula. The molecule called the laser beam target chromophore, which releases the heat effect of the laser, is water. The laser beam absorbed by the water creates a heat effect inside the tissue. In this way, the fat cell membrane is broken down and the dissolved free fatty acids are lost from the environment either by aspiration or by joining the free circulation. The laser does not only melt the adipose tissue; At the same time, it breaks down the connective tissue and collagen that has lost its elasticity and increases the formation of young connective tissue and collagen. Thus, it also provides a tightening effect in the tissue and reduces sagging to some extent. It can be preferred in cases where it is not only due to adipose tissue but also accompanied by skin sagging. Laser lipolysis, which is a current treatment in body shaping applications, is effectively used in the treatment of regional fat and skin laxity. Laser lipolysis can be applied against fat deposits in the hips, abdomen, waist, face, arms, inner legs and under the chin. Laser lipolysis, which is applied in the armpits for regional excess fat, tightening the loose skin and eliminating sweating, is a very effective body shaping method. It is a procedure that does not require general anesthesia and can be performed in the clinic with local anesthesia. With a 1-2 mm incision, a cannula is inserted subcutaneously by allowing progression for the laser light. Traces rarely occur (1-2 mm).

It is Comfortable Application

After laser lipolysis, it is important to carry out the care that your doctor recommends. However, it is a comfortable application as it provides the opportunity to recover and return to social life in a short time. There may be bleeding and bruising after the procedure. It is important for those who have a tendency to bleeding, who have a blood disease, and who use blood thinners, to inform their doctor about the precautions to be taken. Wearing a bandage 3-7 days after the procedure; It is necessary for preventing sagging, accelerating tissue healing and accelerating the participation of fatty acids into free circulation.

How is the course of treatment determined?

It is important to evaluate the patient’s suitability for the treatment. The amount of adipose tissue volume will determine the nature of the procedure and the number of sessions. A second session may be recommended for those with large adipose tissue volume. Laser lipolysis applications are generally applied in a single session. However, the number of sessions can be increased according to the volume of the fatty tissues and the excess skin looseness. It is possible to repeat this application with an interval of 3 months. It is important to know the medical history and previous illnesses and operations and chronic diseases of the patient.

How is Laser Lipolysis Applied?

First of all, the areas with regional excess are marked and regional anesthesia is applied to the area to be treated so that the patient is not affected by the heat energy produced by the laser beam. At the end of a waiting period of approximately 10-15 minutes, the area to be treated is thoroughly cleaned and an incision of 1-2 mm is made. The cannula with a diameter of 1 mm passing through the fiber that will emit the laser pulses through this incision is inserted under the skin. With the help of this cannula, a laser pulse is shoot in the area with fat deposition and the fat cells are fragmented.

Attention should be paid to food intake after the procedure

After the application is conducted, the patient can return to work and daily life immediately. Adipose cells removed after the procedure do not emerge again. However, if the patient takes more calories than necessary; may cause an increase in volume in the remaining fat cells. In such a case, it is necessary to apply the process again. Therefore, after laser lipolysis, patients should pay attention to sports and food intake. Laser lipolysis is a less invasive and effective method. It is sufficient to use a corset for 5 days after the laser lipolysis application. If laser lipolysis is applied to the same area; In the second session, it is as light as the first session. Only in this application, a short-term mild edema can be seen. In this period, a soft massage application that both reduces edema and provides lymphatic drainage will affect the patients more positively.
