5 Reasons We Love Slim Lipo
Slim Lipo is the latest development in liposuction – utilizing advanced laser technology to eliminate pain, reduce side effects, and shorten the recovery time of traditional lipo. The Slim Lipo fat loss system in East Lansing uses laser technology to melt away the excess fat and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body. This treatment is commonly performed on areas such as stomach, hips, thighs, flanks, buttocks, arms, neck and chin.
Slim Lipo Eliminates the Pain of Liposuction
Traditional liposuction does not use a laser – but relies on brute force to dislodge the fat from the body, before sucking it out with a tube. However, Slim Lipo liquefies the fat in order to make the fat easier to remove. The tube used for suctioning out the fat is much smaller with Slim Lipo and as a result, the incisions are smaller as well. The Slim Lipo tip spreads the laser heat energy – melting the fat for easy extraction.
Patient satisfaction is much higher with Slim Lipo laser-assisted liposuction compared to other traditional and older lipo techniques, because of the dramatic reduction in pain. And, all of this is done without a general anesthesia being necessary!
Slim Lipo is Safe
The FDA has approved Slim Lipo as it is the most recent and advanced form of laser liposuction.
Due to its low wavelength, Slim Lipo is an extremely safe procedure. Traditional lipo treatments use force to dislodge and remove fat. With Slim Lipo, the risk of burns or damaging tissue are virtually non-existent. And, the smaller incisions and shorter time for recovery from this type of fat loss lowers the risk of complications and infection.
Lastly, there are no dangerous complications from being put under with general anesthetic – as only a topical anesthetic is utilized during Slim Lipo laser liposuction.
Slim Lipo Eliminates Large Scars
Just like every other type of surgical fat loss procedure, the incisions made during liposuction do leave scars. However, the scars from Slim Lipo are significantly smaller than those left from traditional liposuction. The procedure requires only tiny incisions that do not need any stitches, therefore the area treated will recover without noticeable scars.
Slim Lipo incisions are virtually undetectable as they are usually placed within the natural folds of the skin and fade to almost invisible once the incision is healed. Traditional liposuction incisions usually range up to a 1⁄2″ inch in length, while the tiny Slim Lipo scars are normally 1⁄8″ inch in length or less.
Slim Lipo Tightens Skin!
Advanced Slim Lipo laser has 2 wavelengths: one that specifically targets and destroys the fat, while the other laser wavelength tightens the skin.
While traditional lipo has no skin tightening benefits, Slim Lipo patients notice an improvement in the smoothness and tightness of the skin immediately after Slim Lipo. And, there is continued firming of the skin for up to 6 months after the treatment is completed!
Slim Lipo Has Less Downtime
Because Slim Lipo is laser assisted, the fat is melted making it safer and easier to remove from the body. While traditional liposuction requires that fat be manually dislodged from the body – with aggressive poking and prodding – Slim Lipo sucks out the or “liquified” fat cells without the need for mechanical separation of the fat from the body.
The result is less bruising, less swelling and much less downtime. Patients undergoing traditional liposuction often require 5 days to a week (or more) of painful downtime while they recover. But the shortened recovery time of Slim Lipo enables most patients to be able to return to work and normal activities as soon as the next day.
