Cool Lipo is laser assisted liposuction

+2

Cool Lipo is a laser-assisted lipolysis procedure, and is a brand new and minimally invasive technology that liquefies fat for easy removal. It is a laser-based procedure that helps to break up and removes fat cells in small areas such as under the chin, neck, and jowls. It is also recommended for areas with loose skin such as the arms.

In addition, through the unique technology, the Cool Lipo laser system directly contracts collagen and tightens the skin. This kind of effect can not be seen with standard liposuction. The procedure itself is short and can be done in a physician's office. It also can be done under the local anesthesia, which allows for minimal downtime.

Many patients are happy to have a choice of the treatment with minimal surgical invasion. Cool Lipo is very safe with minimal busing and side effects. Although there are also other laser lipo systems Cool Lipo seems to have the best results.

Cool Lipo (laser-assisted lipolysis) is a new, minimally invasive technology that liquefies fat for easy removal. It is a laser-based procedure that breaks up and removes fat cells in areas such as under the chin, neck, and jowls or areas with loose skin such as the arms. It tends to be a faster procedure than smart lipo, but not as effective for skin tightening.

The procedure is an excellent option for patients who have had a liposuction and need one or more isolated areas improved in a cost effective and convenient manner.  It generally can provide natural looking and signficant results utilizing local anesthesia or iv sedation.

However, it is not a replacement for traditional liposuction
