Having excess fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of can be an annoyance and can severely affect self-esteem. There are several ways to get rid of this fat, but two similar procedures are traditional liposuction and SlimLipo. To decide which one is right for you, take a look at the information on both of these procedures.
SlimLipo is a new development in the body contouring industry. This treatment is designed to melt away fat cells using a laser quickly and with minimal downtime. The treatment also improves the look and tone of the skin. SlimLipo is a form of laser liposuction. It is minimally invasive and removes fat from specific parts of the body with less downtime and risk than a typical liposuction procedure. A minimally-invasive procedure like SlimLipo uses a very small incision in the skin, usually under local or tumescent anesthesia, with much less bleeding than standard liposuction. Fat is heated by a laser, and then removed from the body through a tube. Skin is rejuvenated because of collagen generation caused by the laser’s energy.
