LipoLite™


Lipolite is an Nd:YAG laser device that is used to melt fat cells.  It is used either for laser contouring or for laser assisted liposuction contouring.

Laser Contouring

Laser contouring is ideal for people who would like to get rid of very small pockets of fat.  Ideal candidates for this procedure are lead a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise regime.  In this procedure, the area is numbed with a numbing fluid that is placed beneath the skin through very small incisions in the skin.  Because the procedure is minimally invasive, only local anesthesia provided by the numbing fluid is necessary.  Next, a second cannula is inserted into the same incision.  A precise, powerful laser beam is directed through the cannula via an optical fiber.  After the procedure, the body absorbs fat cells that have been melted with the laser.

Laser assisted liposuction

This procedure is ideal for people who would like to get rid of pockets of fat that have resisted diet and exercise.  Ideal candidates lead a healthy lifestyle with a consistent diet and exercise routine.  This procedure should not be used for weight loss.  In this procedure, the area is numbed with a numbing fluid via small cannulas inserted through small incisions in the skin.  The anesthesia provided by the numbing fluid is sufficient, so there is no need for patients to be put under.  The lipolite laser is then used to melt fat cells, and small cannulas are used to remove the fat from the body.

Benefits of Lipolite

  • Ability to treat smaller areas such as the neck, area above the knees, and arms.
  • LipoLite can also be used to seal blood vessels resulting in less bruising, swelling and shorter down time: one to three days compared to three to five days with toumescent liposuction and one to two weeks with traditional liposuction.
  • The heat from the laser causes skin tightening from the inside.

Patients looking for body sculpting without downtime may also consider the Zeltiq and the Liposonix procedures.
