How does LIPOLASER work?
LIPOLASER features a tiny tube, called a cannula, which is inserted through a very small incision into your skin. A precise, powerful laser beam is directed via an optical fibre through the cannula, and liquefies deposits of fat cells in the treatment area. 

Liquefied fat removal: the fat is removed from your body using the same tiny incision. The LIPOLASER procedure also leads to skin tightening and less bruising and bleeding in the treated area.

Which body areas can be treated with LIPOLASER?
LIPOLASER can treat smaller areas not possible with traditional liposuction. Ideal treatment regions include smaller areas on the face, neck, arms, bra line, back, upper and/or lower abdomen, thighs and buttocks. The male breast can also be treated.

When can I expect to see results?
While results may sometimes be seen almost immediately, the most visible results will be reached six to eight weeks after treatment. 

Will I need anaesthesia?
LIPOLASER is minimally-invasive, and considerably less traumatic to the body than traditional liposuction, so only local anaesthetic (around the area treated) is required for treatments.

Does the procedure hurt?
Local anaesthetic helps make the LIPOLASER procedure comfortable. After treatment, and when the anaesthesia begins to wear off, patients may experience minimal bruising, plus minor aches and pains that naturally dissipate over time. LIPOLASER patients typically return to work one to two days after treatment.

Am I a good candidate for the LIPOLASER procedure?
If you are in good health, but have stubborn areas of fat that you can't seem to get rid of through diet and exercise, and have reasonable expectations of treatment results — you’re a candidate for LIPOLASER.

How many treatments are needed?
For most patients only one treatment is required. The session may last ±2-3 hours for each area treated.
