According to Dr. Simon Ourian, the laser liposuction treatment now being offered is designed specifically to target fat pockets in the neck, chin, and other areas difficult to treat with traditional liposuction. A burst of energy produced by the laser liquefies fat that is then aspirated with standard liposuction techniques.
Laser energy with a high peak power and short pulse length is delivered by a thin fiber that is inserted through small incisions in the skin. The high peak power is said to more effectively liquefy fat and the short pulse duration can ablate more tissue with less collateral damage. Additionally, the laser’s specific wavelength targets the water in the dermis’ connective tissue to promote collagen rejuvenation and skin tightening.
“I’m very excited to introduce this procedure at Epione, says Medical Director Simon Ourian, M.D. “There is a real need for the spot reduction laser liposuction offers for areas that are typically difficult to treat such as the back of the knees and chin.”
The laser liposuction can be done under a local anesthesia, thereby avoiding the dangers inherent with the general anesthesia typically required of a traditional liposuction procedure. Also, the procedure can be performed on an out-patient basis in a doctor’s office so hospital or surgical center fees are eliminated.
Other advantages of the laser liposuction treatments include shorter procedure times and bruising or side effects are typically minimal. These, combined with reducing fat in smaller areas generally lead to less post-procedure downtime.
“The procedure offers a high degree of precision and allows for minimal recovery time,” concludes Dr. Ourian. “The convenience and effectiveness of the procedure offers a real benefit to our patients.”
Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
