Why Laser Liposuction is Growing in Popularity in the UK

     The advent of summer heralds the arrival of the season for swimsuits. As a result, most people try to lose their excess fat in gyms and through fat loss pills and potions. However there always seem to be a few stubborn pounds that won't shift, or areas that seem to accumulate more fat than others, and it can get disheartening.

As a last resort, many people consider surgery to remove the fat, but this has many drawbacks. It is expensive, there are risks associated with surgery and the general anaesthetic required and it can be painful. It takes a while for the bruising and swelling to go down, and it is likely that the patient will have to take some time off from work to recover.

However there are now non surgical treatments available which have the same dramatic results as liposuction, but without the pain, risks and recovery time. Although they are not cheap, compared to the cost of surgical procedures they are relatively inexpensive, and will not require time off for recovery.

One of the advances that allows for these non surgical procedures is lasers. These days, lasers are used in a number of cosmetic surgery procedures, Lasik eye surgery and dental surgery. Modern technology allows us to do things that weren't possible before.

For example, the Lapex BCS used in Laser Lipo treatments is a low level laser originally developed 10 years ago to treat sports injuries and to assist the body in healing itself. It was while patients were being treated in this way that the that the body contouring benefits of this particular type of laser were first discovered. It is FDA approved, and has been thoroughly tested and proven to be safe and effective with no negative side-effects.

In contrast to traditional liposuction, laser liposuction treatments such as Laser Lipo use paddles which work through the skin. A laser beam penetrates the skin through these paddles, targeting fat cells. Activating these fat cells with the specially designed laser causes a series of events to take place within them.

Pores form on the cells, which causes their contents to spill out. These contents move into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin and the fat cells are therefore reduced in size. Neighbouring structures such as the skin, blood vessels or nerves are not affecteed. Probe lasers directed to the body's lymphatic system then take the fat out through the venous system, and they are then processed by the body in the same way as fatty foods are digested.

In addition to Laser Lipo, Smart Lipo and Lipo-Smooth also make use of lasers to perform non surgical liposuction. Each of them work slightly differently and results and recovery time can vary accordingly, so it's worth doing your research on which one is most suitable for you.

Because most types of laser liposuction are usually compeletely painless but have comparable results with traditional surgical liposuction, it's no wonder that they are becoming so popular in the UK. Our appearance and our health have a big impact on how we feel about ourselves, so a treatment that can remove unwanted fat without harming our bodies in any way is sure to be in demand.
