Body Contouring Laser
Laser technology has been around since 1959 when it was first introduced by physicist Gordon Gould working at the university of Columbia. He was the one who dabbed the term “Laser”; initials that stand for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”. How wide spread the use of laser has since become is truly mindboggling. One of the latest developments in medaesthetic treatments is the body contouring laser (also known as “lipolaser”), a revolutionary new way of ridding the body of excess fat. Body contouring is the fastest growing field in non intrusive aesthetic medical treatments.
The technologies which were first used for medaesthetic body contouring treatments were RF (Radio Frequency) and IR (Infra Red). Body contouring laser treatments are the newest addition to the growing array of efficient non intrusive alternatives to conventional cosmetic medicine surgical procedures such as liposuction, tummy tucks, bottom tucks etc.
Advantages of Body Contouring Laser
The basic principle governing all non intrusive medaesthetic body contouring treatments is causing fat molecules to break down and then be absorbed into the blood stream and expelled from the body through normal metabolic functions. Considering the side effects of the alternative cosmetic surgical procedures, the advantages of medaesthetic body contouring treatments become apparent. However, these non intrusive treatments must promise results which are just as good (if not better) and long lasting in order to be considered viable options.
Body contouring laser treatments are all that and more. Patients come into Lucie’s Mesdispa and remain there for the duration of the 30- 40 min treatment. After that they can immediately leave and continue on with daily activities. Results are usually plainly visible after the second treatment but maximum effects are achieved after completing a treatment protocol of two sessions a week for 4 – 6 weeks. Final results are at least as impressive as those which would have been achieved by expert cosmetic surgeons operating on the treated area. If, in time, fat accumulates again in problematic areas another treatment cycle can be embarked upon.
Body contouring laser treatments can be done to reduce dimensions and improve curves at the waistline, hips (and love handles), thighs, arms, legs, buttocks, upper and lower back. They are just as effective on men as they are on women. The age of laser has truly arrived to medaesthetic body contouring
