Fat Melting Lasers for Body Slimming

The second group of “fat melting lasers” are used externally and do not produce any heat at all. These lasers work by shining the light through the relatively transparent skin into the fat cells below the surface. The beam then triggers a photochemical reaction in the fat cells that cause them to open their pores, allowing the fat to leak out. The fat cell (adipocyte) goes from a plump fat laden grape into a smaller shriveled raisins. With moderate exercise the contraction of the muscles below stimulate the now extracellular (outside of the fat cell) fat to be pumped into the lymphatic system of vessels to eventually be metabolized in the liver.

The reduction in size occurs gradually over the 2-3 weeks during which the treatments are being performed about every other day. There is a generalized reduction of fat and inches in the area, but not the precise body sculpting that can be achieved with the surgical fat removal using Smartlipo or Vaser LipoSelection.

The most popular of theses types of lasers, often referred as diode lasers is Zerona by Erchonia. Lipo-Ex is also a non-contact, relatively painless, device to reduce subcutaneous fat that uses bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy instead of light, to slightly heat up tissue under the skin very gradually. In theory, this increases the metabolic breakdown as the fat. As with the Zerona, the fat “melted” by Lipo-Ex is also removed by the body’s lymphatic system.

The best result are achieved when the person is exercising regularly, as this improves the lymphatic clearance of the fat released from the cells. Results are also enhanced, of course, when you are eating properly and not trying to plump up those fat cells again. The best candidates for these non-surgical “lasers” are individuals who are within 20 to 30 pounds of their ideal body weight who desire a slimmer look in a general area of the body, such as thighs, buttocks, back or waistline. Since the fat cells are not physically removed as with Vaser Lipo or Smartlipo, repeat rounds of treatments or maintenance treatments are often recommended every few months.
